    Ok.

    I am hereby re-engaging the protocol whereby I insert a winky emoticon when I'm teasing.
    Personally, *I* think I'm hysterically funny.

    And, that, my friends, is why I started using emoticons.

    People who know me can read my feelings, but people who don't almost always miss my sarcasm. In a forum I was on people would sometimes have to clarify "just for the record, Elaur was being sarcastic, she doesn't want to move in with your mother"

    Time in the forum has much to do with it.
    I have no idea who cranky the crankster is.
    Now if Ragingkatsuki had done it, I would have posted another 20 emoticons.
    But then he and I know each other's sense of humor.

    I don't see anything wrong with emoticons.
    Just don't expect me to send out those blasted huggies.

    I'm on your side Mystic Tater

    The sort of reactions I see here are the sort I get IRL when I speak openly. People often seem to miss the point.

    Some points:

    - Bluntness isn't inherently superior to tactfulness. I do at times admire people who are frank and forward with their opinions - you always know where they stand. That doesn't mean it can't be obnoxious and inappropriate. And remember there is a difference between honesty and truthfulness. You donít need to tell your friend that her ass looks huge in those pants Ė you can tell her that it doesnít suit her.

    - Some people arenít made for conflict. Usually my brain just shuts down when it starts - its completely involuntary. My mind says "f*ck this I'm outta here". I just can't do anything in that situation. On top of that I find it grating, distracting from the real issue and that it really doesnít serve any purpose. For these reasons I avoid it. I have no problem with debate, even heated debate.

    - Self-improvement is important. For me personally, I find it essential. I need to move forward, broaden my mind, seek new experiences, strive amend or reduce my faults. It doesn't have to be anything mind-shattering, I just need to be progressing. For me anything less is a stagnant pointless existence Ė like living hand to mouth.

    - Self-improvement and self-acceptance are not necessarily in opposition. While not religious, I try to live by the Serenity Prayer:

    God grant me the serenity
    To accept the things I cannot change;
    Courage to change the things I can;
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    - INFPs will be self-critical, over-analytical and perfectionistic. Yeah, there are times when we should just cheer up and get on with it but we are naturally unaccepting of the status quo. We see flaws in everything and can clearly see in our mind's eye, the preferred ideal. Our very lives are centred on bridging the gap between the flawed reality and its ideal. Telling us that that's wrong is like telling a SJ that tradition isn't important. We can't live any other way.

    People create arbitrary systems of measurement by which they can believe they have improved, so that they don't have to face the fact that their entire life is just a slow march to death, impeded only by their instinctive desire to stay alive. We even design time in such a way as to avoid facing this fact. Why else would we represent it as a cycle that repeats rather than simply measured in a straight line from beginning to end? Because the latter reminds us too much of our mortality, and the former unconsciously conveys the false idea that things that go away will always come back. You cannot escape.
    Feel good movie of the summer right here.
