About Me

Philip Norton

Philip Norton

A blog doesn’t make much sense if you don’t know who the author is, so allow me to elaborate.

My name is Philip Norton and I am a 183cm tall ape descendent from Cheshire, in the United Kingdom.

Personality Profile

Apparently I am an INTJ or Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging. I’m not sure what this means on a personal basis, but I am said to be a “builder of systems”, applier of theoretical models and found in 2.1% of total population, so there we are. You can find out your own personality profile by taking the Free Jung Personality Test. Good luck!

Contact Me

I have lots of different user accounts on many different sites. But if you want to get in contact with me then you can use one of these:

Created by #! code


I took one of those online IQ tests and it said my IQ was 133, which I find hard to believe. The last one I did before that was the BBC TV show where I got an IQ of 113, which I think fits me a little better.

The books I have read

Another way of seeing the sort of person I am is by looking at all of the books I have ever read. I’m not a quick reader by any means, nor do I find the time to do it much sometimes. However, for some reason I have been writing down every book I have read into the same old notebook. So to keep it going in what seems to be a more concrete way I will write them down here and when I finish a book it will be added to the list. Please note that this does not include many academic books (like computer books for example) as I rarely read these from cover to cover and I don’t feel that they “fit in” to this list.
