    Default Forum behaviour graph - where are you?

    Imagine there was a graph like this...



    I've tentatively put some people on there by way of demonstrating what I mean, but by all means feel free to disagree. It's just a theory. It's a work in progress! (I actually dreamed it last night, literally)

    Discuss - where are you? Do you see ways to improve the model? can you think of other axes to add? Can you help me think of a positive interpretation of why/how extreme "top left" people get there, apart from manipulation and defamation and foot stamping to persuade everyone they're right? Any other thoughts?

    Edit - if you're new to the thread, a revised graph and working definition's been drafted, if that helps you place yourself.

    1) For some other axes -- Perhaps something like humorous/serious? Aggressive/passive? Critical/supportive? Licentious/Demure? How about Chaotic/Neutral/Lawful?

    I can only imagine you would end up with the gnarliest 3D model, not unlike a walkthrough into virtual reality game.

    2) Do me! Do me!

    LOL do yourself!!

    I think maybe passive and aggressive might be related to the vertical axis as it already is... if we take aggressive without its connotations of violence, then it could easily apply to a person who sorta goes out directly with intent to propagate their opinions ("teach"). That's why I put BW in the top right, cos that tends to be his approach - he comes up with an idea or theory and then sets out to explain it to people, to teach it to us, and is more interested in ensuring that we all understand it properly, than in hearing our views on it or refining it in accordance with criticism. Or seems to be anyway. And he does it in a non-social way as well, by sticking to discussing the theory and (at least to my knowledge) not using humour or charm to communicate it but rather plain speaking.

    Meanwhile the learner/absorber corresponds to passivity to varying degrees, depending how far on that line you are - learning usually entails more listening than speaking, but there's still a scale of passivity because it also sometimes entails asking questions. Do they absorb and learn by asking a lot of questions, in which case closer to the centre, or do they simply sit back and listen?

    So I can't be persuasive and learning at the same time?

    On a scale 100 social .. 0 .. 100 unsocial, 100 teaching .. 0 .. 100 learning,

    I think I seem 55 unsocial and 70 teaching (failing hard ),
    thinking of my self as 35 unsocial and 30 teaching.

    I don't write much about what I've learned
    I think it's also social to learn together, something which may not count as social to most.

    hmmm.... I'd definitly be pretty far in the social direction I'm guessing- I post a lot and interact quite a bit!

    as for the other part I'm not all that sure I don't think that most of my intellectual contributions carry much of an impact, really, but I'm opinionated enough to share them anyways probably slightly that direction I'm guessing- I really can't assess myself well that way!

    interesting idea though!

    Of course! If your intention is always equal between teaching and learning, and not just your intention but your actual behaviour, then you'd be dead in the centre of the vertical axis
