    Interesting ... I agree with everyone else ... then I looked it up too.

    Neat!

    Bouba sounds fat / blobby, so kiki first as all others say.

    I wonder if the one person who voted "kiki" as the blobby thing really thinks that way...

    Yes, agree with everyone - kiki sounds way more pointy and hard, bouba sounds softer and "blobbier".

    This is clearly a social experiment to find possible meanings for a pair of new words that someone liked the name of and wanted to import into English as adjectives.

    On this evidence, this thread is kikky.
    The one just started about who is the happiest member, and about half the threads in the NF and relationship forums, are bouba.

    Left Kiki, right Bouba. Kiki sounds sharp, like the left image. Bouba sounds rounded, like the right image.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    That is pretty much how I approached it as well.

    Hmm. I moved a bunch of posts... but the forum is still whacked and they're not showing up right now.

    Sorry about that.

    EDIT: Ah, there we go.
