Fear was a poem written by Kahlil Gibran and published in 1923 in his widely acclaimed book The Prophet. One of my WordPress ‘friends/followers’ recently posted it as inspiration.

And I think I’m afraid.

Election 2016, is my fifth book. Like the others it deals with the intersection of politics and personality. This blog addresses the overall wellbeing of the personal and political. From a unique psychological, evolutionary, and personal perspective it combines history, geography, and fiction in an attempt to get close to reality.
Regarding Myers-Briggs I score as ESTJ, Thinking being the highest score. The type is labeled, Executive. All of that makes sense considering my life's history. But there have been problems. Due to the fact I'm a freedom-loving freak - for you as well as me. I'm no boss.
I love honesty & independence and hate sloth & pretension. But, suit yourself.
Regarding OCEAN, I score highest on Openness and lowest on Agreeableness - which agrees with Myers-Briggs.
My writing is experimental - meaning it is not formulaic, or, not for mass consumption. Warning: Read at your own risk.
