    Of course not--we are right all the time! (In my opinion anyway.)

    How many times have you heard this “ OH you’re a TRUMPET PLAYER, no wonder “ . Been called sarcastic, Triple A personality, Cocky, Controlling, and you know what, they are probably correct. Honestly I haven’t met a trumpet player that’s NOT one or more of these…..this is the type of personality that a trumpet attracts, it’s part of what it takes to play a trumpet, and I’m honoured to be called all of these and more. When the red light comes on WE’RE the people that you can count on to get it done, Right !!
    How many trumpet players does it take to screw in a light bulb… and it will be done right ! Just a little opinionated here.....

    That's an absolute fact.

    What? I'm not opinionated, everybody else is. I'm just right about everything.

    Hey, I got your opinion.......overtly verbose? If I need your opinion, I'll give it to you....least you'll know it's right this time. Probably another feeble attempt by some closet sax player to subvert us....or worse.....a flute player tipping the valve oil watch them flute to hang out in the sax section if you let them. And another thing, I can't even type "A".. :cool:ROFLROFLROFL

    Well, let me add this...based on the responses so far, it would be fair to say that trumpet players have a good sense of humor, in addition to their opinions, which of course are always indisputable.

    The one caveat here is that we may have to exclude moderators, who by definition must remain humorless!

    I've already had more than one good chuckle reading some of the responses here!

    It might be interesting to know what our Myers-Briggs personality types are... I'm consistently ENTJ, the type whose motto is "I'm really sorry you have to die." Seems to go along with what I've read above. I thought the flugelhorn might take the edge off, but alas, it hasn't.

    I guess we have to define "opinionated". I kind of view opinionated for many that have not spent time studying a specific issue. They have a gut level feeling that they defend, not really the whole story. The opinion may be right or wrong.

    Then again, there are those who invest a great deal of time in figuring something out and take issue with things other than the truth. They are labled as "opinionated" by some. When pushed, they can back up the premise and that makes it more "factual" than opinionated. The truth can be very tough sometimes if someone is WAY off track.

    So I see trumpeters as factual or opinionated, truthtellers or BSers and naturally everything in between.

    It is often the members that pull threads back on track. The moderators here let quite a bit get through and there are VERY few censorship issues
