    Default Can 5s be badasses?

    Or are they all quiet and nerdy like me?

    And when you meet a nerdy type person, would you instantly think: "Type 5!!!!" ?

    I know there are some 6s who are a little bit nerdy, but they usually have a lot less nerdy qualities.

    Really. Why do people want to be bad ass? Anyway, us 5's are badass in nerdy way. I had a co- worker introduce me to another person with "she's forgotten more than you've ever known". Tell me that's not a bad ass introduction for a five. At a Christmas party, no less.
    Well, I felt pretty bad ass at the time anyway....until everyone expected me to come up with something intelligent when I was three sheets to the wind.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    Depends on how you define "badass" - it's a pretty flexible term.
    Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

    I thought the traits were reasonably clear: tough, strong, fearless, an unmovable rock.

    I guess you could interpret badass as a more of a rebel, or some asshole type though.

    I heard something about 5s that are tough. I think I've seen one before too. Could have been a 6 though really.

    Under that definition, I guess some of them are - I can think of a few fictional character examples off the top of my head.

    Badassery =/= coolness under my criteria, though. So there's that. Stephen Hawking's pretty cool, but I wouldn't call him a "badass".

    They are all fictional, Elfboy.

    what's your point? there are people IRL with similar personalities and accomplishments. a convincing fictional character will have a believable personality

    The point is that fiction does not prove anything.

    Q: Can someone be almighty?
    A: God is almighty.

    Under my definition Stephen Hawking is a total badass. So clearly we do not all have the same definition of badass.

    I think 5s are totally badass when they confront their fear of the world and allow themselves to be even a little bit vulnerable.
    I don't see any invisible treasure chests.
