the Managing Director
conceived of creating a community web-site
where intuitive females could go,
not to just hang out, but to gain insights into
themselves, their relationships,
their strengths and interests,
their school majors/ career possibilities;
and how to handle conflicts with other people
who have different personality types
(parents, teachers, friends, etc.)
the last two decades I came to realize that the Jedi philosophy,
as envisioned by George Lucas, is in essence an Intuitive's
perspective of reality.
The goal of the Jedi
Quest is insight into the mysteries of reality; understanding
of the unknown; and creating awareness of new perspectives.
my goal to create this community, now had a theme.
intuitive boys are able to form activity groups based on common
interests (i.e. science, model building hobbies, remote- controlled
car racing, etc.), intuitive girls have fewer options
girls being more interested in relationships than rocket
launching, I realized that Dr. Carl Jung's concept of personality
types - as extended by Dr. Meyers, Dr. Briggs and Dr.
Keirsey, provides the solid foundation for creating an Intuitive
Intuitive types (NFs and NTs) are a far
smaller percentage of the population than Sensate types, we
Intuitives need a place oriented toward our interests and needs.
types (SPs and SJs) have already created numerous
social gathering places: sporting events, churches, Girl Scouts,
sororities, and community service groups like the Rotary Club,
Job's Daughters, etc.
there is a dearth of organizations and communities for Intuitives,
especially Intuitive girls.
want the community to provide a sense of inclusiveness and comfortableness;
of wonder and fascination; of exploration
Girl was conceived to provide girls with a sense
of ownership of the community. A place where they can meet others
with the same interests. A place where they can bring their
friends and even boyfriends; use the personality quiz as an
'ice-breaker' and build new relationships.
over the last few years have found that girls do better in science
and math classes if they are in female-only classes. Boys are
too noisy, bossy, excited and aggressive, etc. Girls, they found,
tended to want to think about an answer before speaking, and
were being ignored by the teachers (sometimes just to keep the
boys under control). In girl-only science and math classes,
they found that the girls did as well as boys, and sometimes
these reasons I wanted the site/community to be for girls.
are welcome, of course, but they are, and will be treated,
as guests - On Girl Turf!
Not as co-owners, which would of course,
end up with the guys taking control and changing it into a boys-oriented
