  1. I loved the discussion of Daniel’s dissertation! Fascinating. As an INTJ (and having taken the Myers-Briggs six times and every time scoring as an INTJ) I would be interested in learning more about how other INTJs scored. I would be interested in reading the dissertation . I am contemplating starting a D.Min (I have an M.Div currently and work in chaplaincy) program and have thought about doing research on the spiritual and “meaning making” elements associated within the SWTOR community. Thanks for doing the research Daniel, and thanks for sharing!

    I’m also a big fan of the podcast. Keep up the great work guys!
