    Default EMOTICON POLI-TICKING (and method of use)

    Do you like to always consult the legend or type the code from memory?


    If memory, is it because you have a select likely that you usually use? Or, you just a human computer?

    Do you use emoticon to smooth a potential perceived sting of words? Political diplomat, you!

    Or, to instigate/stir shit?

    DISCUSS! Emoticon politics/dynamics!

    I just use them instead of words. See if you can interpret this message:

    I emoticonize to convey the feeling behind my words in the absence of the tone of my voice and the animation of my face. Other times, I want to respond to something, but I'm too busy to really say much.

    And I love doing stuff like ^. I generally enjoy deciphering the meaning of symbols, and sending out cryptic messages.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Hi, I'm kind of sleepy but I love to party and fuck the rules (like sleeping when it's night) so I'm drinking coffee and am kinda buzzed and awake!

    If all else fails, use

    It says so much, it says nothing.

    I have a set of favourite emoticons that I use and I type the code from memory. I tend to overuse emoticons because words seem too bleak to convey the emotion behind them. A little here and there makes it all more pleasant for myself and hopefully for the reader (probably not for the eternal hater of emoticons, though). I mostly use humour and some tongue-in-cheek meanings, so it's always best to use emoticons to try to avoid misunderstandings. Can't call myself much of an instigator though, couldn't be bothered.

    Ones I use frequently I just type out. If I only occasionally use it, I have to look it up. Especially if the code is misspelled. :horor:

    As far as usage...

    I have found that the INFP by my name means people don't expect certain types of humor from me. If I say something really dry and NTPish, people assume I'm being serious, and then I have to clarify that I was, indeed, only joking. Which makes it not fun anymore.

    So to play it safe, I error on the side of emoticon.

    It's more fun when people don't understand that you are being sarcastic. Don't bow to the emoticon pressure!

    I use emoticons for showing or - I like :tongue1: too. I'm not exactly sure why I use them, I'm just trying to contribute instead of just pick on Udog.

    (<- Had to look that one up.)

    I don't often use . The only time I can really use it (with maybe one or two exceptions) is if I would really hug the person in real life. Consider it an emoticon quirk with me.
