    The dynamics I imagined in this scenario were:
    1) SmileyMan and YWIR co-captaining some team till they back-stab each other to attempt to win whatever game this reality show has.
    2) Riva constantly getting into fights with Salomé and Speed Gavroche for his impish ways
    3) Oakysage and shortnsweet being very pleasant with everyone and never being voted off. They may amicably decide to call it a draw at the end.
    People need to stop grouping me with smileyman, or others for that reason. I'm competitive; everyone is in the same little corner. Besides, Salome hates that guy, and would light him on fire as he sleeps. I'll watch and high five her, then light speed gavroche on fire next.
    Riva will attempt to seduce oaky, but will only fail and creep oaky out, thus unintentionally sending him in the arms of ShortnSweet.
    Kidnap shorts, and lure oaky into a trap, removing both of them out of the picture.
    Salome and I are left. This one scares me.

The idea of "winning" in a broader sense presumes that life is a zero-sum-game, which I do not accept. Someone can get ahead by making more for themselves without it being at the expense of others.


    Who are "they"?? Skills do improve with use, so T preference should correlate to some degree with T-related skill, but it is far from absolute. Yes, if a T (or anyone) behaves as you describe, they are being irrational, but if you let it get to you, you are being irrational also. Sort of like two wrongs don't make a right. Things just deteriorate from there. I have observed an interesting phenomenon, though. Sometimes the more I am able to keep my cool in such a situation, the more upset and emotionally out of control the other person becomes. This is their problem.
    Not necessarily. I do agree a certain amount of internal focus is good, not because of emotional repression, but because of centering. That way you don't allow the other person to harm you in any way; on the other hand, remaining too detached is actually a form of denial, and it can lead to unconscious behaviors that aren't any healthier than hitting people when you're mad. You might not be hitting anyone, but you could have other serious issues in relationships.

    Sometimes if people are too calm when someone is upset, it's not because you're actually so calm and centered, it's because you're being condescending...and yes, that does upset other people.

    I've done reading on this behavior in relationships, and it's actually relatively a small part of the population who are mature/healthy enough that they're always acting out of true benevolent detachment and inward centering, and it's actually most people who react emotionally...or who are actually being cold, condescending, closed off, and repressing their emotions, etc. There's a difference from not reacting but still remaining open and warm toward other humans, and not reacting because you think you're so in control that you presume that you're better or that you repress your own feelings, etc.

    There comes a point where detachment is not healthy, and it's invalidating to the other person.

    So I do agree with the broad concept, of remaining inwardly centered, but I don't necessarily agree that most people do it from a place of true spiritual or emotional maturity; and the place it comes from will affect how you speak to the other person, and yes that may make them behave more emotionally.

    I also never said two wrongs make a right; however, I like that I can admit when I'm being irrational, I don't march around pretending like when I'm acting like a two year old that I'm rational and superior.

    Actually, that's post-mortem decay. My bad.

    Oaky would find the process of the show fantastic until Riva broke his tolerance capacitors, plunging him into a ravenous cyber-quest to overthrow the Shrilankan government. Or tribe. Whatever they use there.

    That's an entertaining scenario. I didn't see a pyromania stuff coming. A very interesting twist.

    Isn't @EffEmDoubleyou in the business? (show business, I mean).
