@sancho3

I was going to criticize you with regard "turn off updates" but after reading up on ENFP I decided against that. <laugh>

@deltarho[]

the test couln't decide between: ISTJ/INTJ (whatever that may tell you).
Maybe something to do with it: I don't give a hoot, about any of it ...
(Btw: no surprises there, seems my self perception, is still OK)

I did not see that comimg.

ISTJ (No-nonsense type of person) 13% of population
Introverted Sensing, Extraverted Thinking, Introverted Feeling, Extraverted Intuition

INTJ (Natural leaders) 2% of population
Introverted Intuition, Extraverted Thinking, Introverted Feeling, Extraverted Sensing

The judging aspects are the same but the test has come unstuck on the perceiving side which suggests a balance.

Weaknesses:
ISTJ: Stubborn, Insensitive, Always by the book, Judgemental
INTJ: Arrogant, Judgemental, Overly analytical

My weaknesses are: Very private and withdrawn, Insensitive, Absent minded, Condescending

My writing is not 'Very private and withdrawn' but socially I am. I have been working on that. Condescending is not a nice trait and not easily corrected but I do try not to be. Being absent minded has been a source of entertainment for others.<smile>

I don't give a hoot, about any of it ...

That would seem to be in character and a pity because everyone of us would benefit from mitigating to some extent our weaknesses.

I shall leave that thought with you MrSwiss.

@deltarho[],

I think by now that I've figured it out, the reason we tend to, not getting along "nicely":
there is, but one thing, I absolutely can't stand: condescension !
If I only get a whiff of that, I'm off like a rocket, only faster! <grin>

I don't like to "go by the Book", if I don't absolutely "have to":
- compliance with: regulations and/or required standards
- safety for: humans and/or equipment
Otherwise, I prefer to be "creative" (not even consulting the Book, would be: deadly boring!)

Now, that we have it "in the open", I assume we might do better, in the future.

Rightly so. I don't know where I get that from but considering how well I get on with folk now I suspect that the worst is over and I am very different to when I was younger. Of course, the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator indicates likely behavior - it does not prove a particular aspect actually exists. The indicator identified a likely "Always by the book" in your case but, as you have pointed out, that is not the case with you. It is not an exact science but what I do like about it is, for the most part, a good indicator. I assume that the indicator, in your case, did not do a bad job overall.
Now, that we have it "in the open", I assume we might do better, in the future.

I think that we probably will and as time goes by this exercise may prove to have been very worthwhile.

Feature Update to Windows 10, Version 1803

Today, new full version of Windows 10 installed (10.0.17134.1 instead of 10.0.16299.402).
No installation problem (I so validated my own cleanup operations sequence before forcing a reload of the update, and it was successful the first try), except perhaps the time spent got the complete installation (PC with no SSD but with a HHD):
- After downloading the update, the full initialization (online) took about 3 hours.
- Rebooting the PC (several auto rebooting steps), until full access to the new Windows 10, took about 3/4 of an hour.

To see now if the new Windows 10 is less greedy in disk access?

@fxm

Thanks for the heads up. I have also 'bitten the bullet' now. My broadband is 76Mb/s, CPU Intel i7 and I have an SSD. I will not tell you how long it took but it, obviously, came in a lot faster.

Check out Timeline. I can see how useful that would be for some folk but I have no interest in it and have 'killed' it.

I have also an Intel i7 but sadly only a HDD 1TB.
During the upgrade installation (just after the downloading phase), my disk was used at about 90% during 3 hours.

According to Windows Update the Status is 'Pending restart' for KB4103721. I restarted twice and no change in the Status so I shutdown and left for a few minutes. No change. On the other hand 'View update history' tells me KB4103721 was successfully installed.<Oh, dear!> It was not a small update either being a Cumulative one.

Added: So, I did a scheduled update. Allowed that to occur, even though it should have not been required. That got rid of the 'Pending restart'. <laugh>

For me, the truth is provided by the serial number of Windows version (got from "winver"), to be compared to the update reference from "support.microsoft.com":
"May 8, 2018—KB4103721 (OS Build 17134.48)".
