in thread My Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator is ...

I would say that labelling or categorizing things (people, places, animals, &c.) is a part of human nature. As fullermd wrote, it's the difference between "description" and "definition." At various times in our lives, we ourselves have different lables that can be applied to us some of which change over time, some stay with us for our entire lives. Some describe our relationships with others while others may describe what we do (and it could even be argued that what we do is still a relationship to other humans). For example when I was a young, I had the labels: Child/Son, Grandchild/son, Nephew, Cousin. As I grew older, I could add: "boyfriend" to the list. Now instead of "boyfriend", it's "fiance." Soon, that will again change to "husband". This doesn't even include specific descriptions like "student" "employee" "hockey player" or labels of age or appearence. I suspect that we humans have been labelling things for purposes of description since Og first picked up a bone and hit an animal over the head and called it dinner instead of animal. Just my 2 cents - interesting conversation though - definite food for thought.

[Corion]: Cosmic37: Ah, see perlfaq4, about How do I compute the intersection of two arrays
[Cosmic37]: I am out of practice; I use Perl for scientific programming for number crunching
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Basically, you read one file into a hash, keyed by your key, and then match the lines from the second file to that hash
[Cosmic37]: note that the two files only have datetimes which may match whereas other data per line is different format in file1 and file2 - is that really intersection?
[jedikaiti]: Hi Monks
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Well, if you want to use only parts of a line for the key, see split or whatever other mechanism to extract the key from the line
[Corion]: Hi jedikaiti!
[Cosmic37]: is there a webpage for full CB for this chat rather than side panel chat?
[Cosmic37]: thank you for advice
[Cosmic37]: peach greets jedi
