In Cenomite's thread... people brought up how we let stereotypes and our perception of a person's type influence how we type others. So let's have another game and see just to see how much we let stereotyping influence our judgments. It'll also be good typing practice.
Okay what I'll do is select is randomly select a forum member... then pull out some of posts they made that talks about themselves. Some short, some long... and you guess at their type.
" I agree with you, I just like to argue.""I'm no stranger to using the word... but sparingly. When you're using it in reference to a gay person, regardless of how you intended it, it's pretty much up to them whether or not it's acceptable. I'm not saying it offends your friends, my only argument is there are better words to use than one whose use references burning at the stake.
That usually takes the humor right out of the word.""The past couple of weeks or so, I've been noticing that I have a tendency to look at the clock just as it is showing one digit. I seem to have a tendency to see 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 and 11:11.
I haven't been checking my post count recently, but my just previous post concerning The Autobiography of Malcolm X was my 666th post. Is this because I am a white devil?"" I've kind of adopted the attitude of, "Don't like me? Don't like me. I'll survive" ... My reasoning behind honesty is that if people try to be honest with eachother, it eliminates alot of mistrust. If everyone were honest all of the time, you wouldn't really have to worry about wether or not someone's lying. So, to me, apart from the moral aspect, it's a quid pro quo kind of thing. "If you're honest with me, I'll be honest with you."""I think of things like knowing when to be kind and blunt as tools for production.
For instance, if I deem my own intervention to be necessary or desireable, I'll decide, okay, do I need to be kind and understanding, or blunt?
If two of my friends are mad at eachother and tempers are flaring, and physical confrontation seems likely, I'll say something like, "you two are being fucking idiots. If you'd chill out we'd be able to solve this problem. So, as soon as you're ready to get over your own egos, I'll be waiting."---------" Don't appologize to me, appologize to yourself for not using the resources at your disposal."
Type? If you know who the person is... you're automatically out of the game. Searching for posts is also cheating
