I feel for ya, Bob.  At another job a few years back, we all
took the Briggs/Myers personality profiles... you get scores
for various lettered types, E/I,S/N,T/F,J/P.  I scored a particularly
high score on the P side.  Well, one day, we're talking about
a design, or where to go for lunch, or something, and we were
trying to figure out why I did something a certain way.  Without
hesitation, I said, quite seriously, "It's just because
of my large P-ness".  

Silence filled the room, for what seemed like eternity.  Then,
as people began rolling around on the floor in uncontrollable
laughter, I grabbed my coat and went out to lunch.  Alone.
