    Default Do you have a will?

    The figures for the number of people (in the US at least) are that around 30 to 50% of people get a will done before their timely demise.

    I currently do not need to make a will and feel no inclination to do so because 1) I do not object to the current line of inheritance and 2) I am not feeling warm enough to make bequests to anyone\anything anyway - if I die, I die, and will remain cold. But apparently not writing a will could delay the moneygrubbing process due to vagaries that arise from not being certain if there is a will.

    On the opposite side of all this, one of my uncles is...what my mother used to call (I believe) "a philanthropist" with a strong level of disgust...an apparently a clever and disturbing way of stating that he is a frightful queer. As someone who is probably unlikely to have descendants, I should of course be kinder towards him!

    tell those in your will that you've changed it to not include them. avoid suffering a premature "accident" while they keep you alive in the hopes you'll change your mind. agatha christie: intj btw.
    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

    IP temperament for Agatha, Si valuing, mute, shy, confident command of Se when necessary. Ne seeking. Easily and happily adapted to primitive living conditions on her husbands archeological digs in a way that an LII would not have. A servant remarked that it was good to have her on the digs, because she laughed at everything. SEI, I think.
    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.
    Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation

    I think if a will makes it easier for survivors and helps avoid the trouble and expense of court proceedings, then it is worth it. You can get them off the internet or just write one yourself.

    intjs can certainly be shy and mute like many introverts. alpha nts can easily adapt to primitive living conditions: this is actually a crucial component of ne descriptions. some intj descriptions go even further by claiming that intjs "train" by exposing themselves to the elements. i can see how these traits apply to alphas in general though.

    now let's enjoy watching her esfjs, which are a source of endless fascination.

    If the people involved honor your wishes enough, you don't have to go through the legislation jungle but just make a public statement.

    My mother basically said to me and brother that we should kill her if she becomes too demented.

    No, but I've been thinking about this recently. Not that I have enough money to really justify it, but eh, whatevs.

    edit: yeah, so basically what lungs said.

    I read the forum title as "Do you have a Wii?"

    I need sleep. Disregard my vote.

    I will consider your interesting theory with my little grey cells, mon ami.
    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
