    Cheap, mass-produced, exploiting everything that works for it...ESTj.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    That would be my guess as well.

    Well Wal-Mart still operates on the original principles of the founder, who basically saw series of problems in retail and product management (negativist) and thought of ways of making it more efficient () by lowering the price of items which were overstocked and not selling on the shelves.

    Why? It is not about providing creative- for employees (which is one of the biggest complaints), but servicing and providing convenient for customers.

    WalMart is the epitome of the halmark of Delta ST with Si and Te: convenient functionality

    Sounds like more quality to me. If there is some kind of ideology which the company creates for its staff to follow then there might be some in there somewhere. But everything everyone said, just spells to me.

    I'm not sure if complex chains of trading is just another thing or a thing.

    And guess what functions the ESTj has? + . Again, it is base- and creative-, which is the Wal-Mart philosophy. Wal-Mart actively uses to run the operation as a method of creating .

    Quality is a based thing, not a based thing. Conviennce, service or otherwise. I don't see any reason for in particular.

    And if you have ever been to Wal-Mart, you would know that Wal-Mart is not about quality. But Wal-Mart does try and make sure that the customer is able to find just about everything they are looking for, provide affordable products, and are attuned to what people want and will redirect their -efforts accordingly. And when you consider that, they sound like a business-efficiency oriented-ESFj, which would be an ESTj.

    definitely not LSE. low quality goods are a no go for the delta quadra. I suggest a scheming dirty rat faced LIE. I think wal-mart creates an Se atmosphere-- tons of low quality and easily consumable goods.

    Anyone who calls Wal-Mart "convenient" has never shopped at Wal-Mart. It is pretty unpleasant.

    Look around the room you're sitting in, and tell me how many of the types of things you see could not be bought at WalMart. WalMart has EVERYTHING, including underpaid employees ready and unwilling to direct you to anything you can't find for yourself by looking at the freaking HUGE blue and white signs hung from the ceiling.

    Si te types like convenient and helpful items. Se types love trinkets, and items in general(wal-mart has everything, tons and tons of shit people don't need)-- they moreso love to purchase, consume, and be a consumer.

    I'd say a twisted ESFJ... Wallmart seems very value oriented (in a bad way) and likes to impose those values upon people and society... it isn't just the materialism... there's a very serious controlling factor there... and I just get that feeling that the entity Wallmart cannot just let people be... there seems to be a subtle drive that we "have to be" a certain way.

    Honestly, I don't think any posters want to be the same type or even quadra as Wal-Mart, that's why there are so many differing viewpoints

    so my dad and your dad might have been friends. would you think i was cool if i told you i was a deacon's kid? minister of music? yes, i know it's hard to believe that we might have both been the kids to race around the sanctuary picking up the communion cups (hoping maybe you did that too). i swear, it seems like i was there five days a week. but you may have lived in a parsonage on church property, in which case you are disqualified.

    I was hoping that you would do the same as you were the one who made the assertion, I'm just asking for evidence over hunches.

    Too true. The idea that Wal-Mart could be a type of Delta, seems quite upsetting to the hippie-element of Delta.

    Every quadra has a hippie element. It's called ethics, and I think WalMart potentially upsets everyone's

    i don't know. wal-mart seems to have lost it's luster. i think starbucks might have replaced wal-mart as the store for hippies to hate.

    I can see why. You’d think the opposite, that Wal-mart is capitalistic, and it is in that it’s all about producing stuff in the cheap, making $$$ and not about giving quality stuff. But it kinda promotes a communistic society, in that everything you can buy is the same. Walmart undersells specialized, smaller stores/markets, offering the same products and low prices and limiting consumer choices and product variety. Very homogenous and anti capitalist.

    Wal-mart is ENTp and only an idiot would think otherwise.

    Stuff flung about here and there, total randomness. (P all the way.) Weird prices like $27.54 (total and complete lack of ) They don't force you to go there, they scheme and underhandedly drive out competition. Total . They don't care who they hurt by these practices. Total non-F = T.

    /didnt read whole thread.

    I love walmart. I don't know why anyone would shop anywhere else when it comes to basic needs. A dozen eggs for .50 cents compared to $4.00 down the road? pft. If it's cheap, i'm going there. All this 'morally wrong' talk is stupid. Paying ten times more at another store is stupid. Who cares if their employees are underpaid, they're the ones staying with the job. Only issue i have with that store is the women who bring their 10 children along and let them run around like lunatics. I need a drink after shopping there, literally.

    i shop elsewhere because things bought at wal-mart either taste bad, fall apart quickly, or are ugly. There is no originality in the goods, and nothing you can be proud to own--just stuff on which to spend money and replace later with more crappy goods.

    Haven't you ever seen South Park? Walmart can't be destroyed.


    I have nothing against it btw... if you like the stuff there, shop, if you don't like, don't shop. I personally don't see what's so great about it, but I don't think it's unethical either- just a business.
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    Target? Macy's? Dear lord, i'm working on a very small salary here. Walmart has the exact same thing as target for about a dollar less. Who cares, that's where i'm going.

    And just to clarify, I don't shop for CLOTHES there.

    now if we were talking about target you'd have a completely different situation. <3 <3 <3 target.

    target's an entp.
