Trekkin' Along

Being bored and restless, I came across Wil Wheaton's blog, by way of Midnight Lily's. For a while i was wondering why "Wil Wheaton" seemed strangely familiar to me, yet I couldn't figure out why. After browsing through his site a bit only did it hit me, "OMG this guy played Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation!". That show was one of my favourites on TV at the time. Nowadays I've been downloading episodes of Enterprise to watch cos our local TV stations don't show it here. (no Star Wars vs Star Trek flames, please).

Anyway back to Wil. I'm quite surprised to find out how down to earth Wil is, and even more so to find out that he's over 30 and married already. Didn't seem so long ago he was this teenager around my age aboard a Starship. How cool is that. He writes about his life, day-to-day stuff, coping with being known as a child actor (although he still writes and acts nowadays), heck he even designed and coded his own web site! How many celebrities can claim that? (although honestly speaking his site design could use some work, not like my own is all that great...). Didn't know he was such a cool guy.

P.S. I went and took the Star Trek Personality Test and here are my results:

Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ISFP (Introvert, Sensor, Feeler, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Bareil and The Doctor.

People like you are a complex blend of empathetic and realistic. You're kind, thoughtful and affectionate with those you know well, though strangers may find you reserved. When you're comfortable, you can be quite humble and gentle with others. When threatened, you tend to shut down. You adapt well to the needs of others without compromising yourself, achieving peace and usefulness with your environment. You're very down-to-earth.

You're faithful, but highly sensitive to criticism. You get your feelings hurt easily. You like to help others in practical ways and dislike confrontations.

If you're a strong introvert, you tend to be quiet and soft-spoken. If you're more extroverted, you may over-compensate for shyness.

Your primary goal in life is feeling peaceful and harmonious with the people and places that matter most to you. Your reward is to be accepted and loved just the way you are.

Good careers for your type include primary care physician, interior designer, massage therapist, chef, and alcohol and drug addiction counselor.



Seems like quite an accurate description of me...
