    @dragon-snapper I think you need to somehow get these fanatics’ MBTI obsession into your next story…

    @ethryndal Haha. Thank you. I assure you that I’ll be very useful. *pulls out encyclopaedia of plans for world domination* (Typical INTJ. Prepared for everything)

    Step #1: Look at people from the corner of your eyes and say something creepy. This will scare them out of their wits.

    Step #2: Turn your head so you’re meeting their gaze full on and slowly pull your mouth into a smile. An evil cackle is optional.

    Step #3: At this point, they will be so terrified of you they will just flee.

    My tried and true method. I tested it on my family. *evil cackle* Or you could do it the @daeus way, but who wants to make people like them? I’d rather have people be scared of me… XD

    LOL, all. Glad to see I am surrounded by other E Js. 😀 @winter-rose To answer your question (in a delayed manner because college and also work) hmmmmm… well, I mean, it would depend on what our end game goal was for world domination. Like, if taking over the world would mean forcing everyone to be nicer and having a streamlined way to fix our food system, then, absolutely I’d be game. In general, though, the world is a lot of people. I think I’d rather settle for one country… maybe two. xD How would I do it…. hmmmmm… probably just talk to people, gain their trust, and gradually work my way up through the ranks of government until I’m in the executive seat and then, using the good will I have stored among whoever I’ve interacted with along the way, allocate more powers to my position until it’s a authoritarian system.

    *long winded explanation over*

    I also like this unicorn-trojan horse idea. There should definitely be confetti inside. Just for the victory party afterward, of course.

    @ethryndal I completely agree. *cackles* However, I find it much more enjoyable for them to not even know I am there… They will hear a noise behind them, turn around and see nothing. The lights will flicker and they will have fallen right into my trap…

    @daeus @jenali @spradlin I think that we are outnumbered by introverts. Probably a good thing…less cooks in the kitchen make a better concoction.
    @that_writer_girl_99 I’m working on it. I haven’t written much in the past few days, but I have it all planned out.
    @christi-eaton Aha! Another extrovert!

    Okay, if Daeus is the dictator, and Christi the secretary, I’ll be head of security. Always wanted to be one of those. Note to self: watch out for confett-filled Trojan unicorn and @f5a8c3e92 ‘s flickering lights.

    @ethryndal It seems unavoidable now… 😛

    Ah I laugh so much reading through threads like this (well, internal laughter. I usually don’t laugh out loud when I read. Is that an introvert thing or just me?). Keepers are truly awesome.

    @spradlin Yes just ruling one or two countries would probably be more practical than ruling the whole world . :D. Your strategy sounds similar to Daeus’s. If you guys became dictators together the world would be awesome (and full of ice-cream and confetti).
    Ah yes, we do need confetti for the Trojan unicorn *adds to battle plans*.

    @f5a8c3e92 Yay for a fellow introvert! You should share your world dominion plans with the rest of the introvert clan. 😉

    @ethryndal your tips for creeping people out are awesome. I will keep those in mind. 🙂

    Here be dragons.

    @winter-rose I’m keeping my eye on you. As self-declared Head of Security of Daeus’ dictatorship, I shall add to my defenses, a confetti-deflecting shield.

    @dragon-snapper What? Little old me? I’m innocent officer I promise *crosses fingers behind back*. 🙂
    I didn’t know confetti shields existed.

    Here be dragons.

    @dragon-snapper So if we breach security, you’ll melt us?

    I didn’t either @winter-rose We’ll have to find someway to work around that…

    I’d like to point out that the confetti idea can be credited to @ethryndal …I blame her for any accidents involving multicolored-paper in the KP forums.

    @dragon-snapper I haven’t worked on my WIP this week either…I’m still trying to figure out where I want it to go, to be honest.

    @dragon-snapper The extrovert’s are badly outnumbered….
    Lets see, if Daeus is dictator, Christi is secretary, and Dragon Snapper is the head of security, I shall be director of marketing. For Daeus’ plan we shall need a department for that.

    @that_writer_girl_99 I’ve been framed! Blame @spradlin for the confetti, not me. I deal in the glitter department. Someone, I need a witness!
