How MBTI Types Approach Rules →

lukemerren:

ENTJ: I make the rules.
ESTJ: I’ve written down the rules and made copies for everyone.
ESFJ: I’ve bent over backwards to fulfill all the rules.
ENFJ: Rules are great – they help us be better people.
INTJ: I’ve discovered all the inconsistencies with the rules and therefore consider them void.
INFJ: These rules are not benefiting me. I’m making up my own rules.
ISTJ: I’ve completed everything according to the rules.
ISFJ: These rules suck!!! *goes along with the rules*
ENFP: Ooops! I didn’t realize there were rules!
ENTP: I’ve discovered these rules are not actually fulfilling their purpose, let me explain why.
ESFP: Is there a fine for breaking the rules? I’ll just pay that.
ESTP: Watch me break the rules!!!!!
INTP: I’ve figured out a way to bend each rule.
ISTP: These rules are important for others, and if I feel like it I might follow along.
ISFP: I’m breaking all the rules, but it’s okay because I don’t think anyone noticed.
INFP: Completely unaware that rules exist, worried about why everyone seems so stressed.

This is the first image of the DNA molecule every produced via x-ray crystallography. The image was obtained by Rosalind Franklin, a crystallographer whose work was then used by Watson and Crick to piece together the double-helical structure of DNA. They won the nobel prize while Franklin did not get credit for her work until years after her death. This image was the beginning of modern genetics and molecular biology as we know it.
The information that this image has provided has created entire fields of study that no one would have predicted 70 years ago. Research in cell, developmental, and molecular biology can all be traced back to this image, “Photo 51”. I study developmental biology and how transcriptional enhancers coordinate gene expression during development, and certainly manipulate DNA daily. This image encapsulates a piece of what I love about biology. This image will never change because it is a piece of history. Understanding the gendered power dynamics behind its publication also resonates with me as I too am a woman working in a male-dominated field. 
The tattoo is placed on my ribcage, made entirely of dots. Artist is Jared Leathers from Spiral Tattoo in Ann Arbor, MI.
