    Default why is this photo so unappealing to me?

    Is this like some sort of beta expression?

    It almost looks like she is some sort of ESTp or something........ its whole nature is unappealing.
    Any socionics connections you can make?





    Yeah, I have already anticipated the "duuuurrrrhhh yeah UDP you're a hardass and you don't like anything duuurrrrrhhhhh"

    Fe, for one thing. Trivial Fe, I suppose that is a better way to put it.

    I think 'airhead' would be an appropriate term .

Seriously, this expression is simply a goofy example of nothing more than typical manipulative advertising/marketing crap tactics, designed to appeal to people who apparently believe that if they buy said item, they will be blissfully deliriously happy and spontaneously giddy like the person in the picture. Ever notice pharmaceutical commercials?? Notice how while they're describing all the hideous side effects, like diarrhea, anal leakage and uncontrollable convulsions, they're simultaneously showing shiny happy smiley people enjoying their now-totally-normal lives immensely? Which ones are more people paying attention to, ya think??

    Yes, it's an INSIPID expression. I think it's only indicative of a sad appeal to generic "fun".

    Yeah, I have already anticipated the "duuuurrrrhhh yeah UDP you're a hardass and you don't like anything duuurrrrrhhhhh"
    Good, then I didn't disappoint.

    The t-shirt has rock, paper, scissors, and she has picked scissors. It is so lame... I just can't bear it.

    OK... now even lamer (if that's possible) than my first impression.
    What ad exec greenlighted that?

    I guess rock-paper-scissors tees aren't really my bag, baby. I happen to think the "snarky graphic tee" demographic is probably overserved at this point. threadless.com used to be pretty novel, but now it just looks hopelessly hokey. And the designs just seem to suck now. They're really reaching...

    Whatever happened to tees that said "Stop Plate Tectonics!" ...?

    *points and laughs* haha you had to explain it. I'm glad it wasn't me

    by the way, i have noticed that i do tend to get pissed, much more than most, about bad adverts. if something is not quite right or not consistent idea wise, or just not creative in my opinion, i get really peeved and it lasts a while. In fact you can count on me and an ISFp friend to be talking about how stupid an advert is on a regular basis. Not saying im proud of this.

    Sex sells, I guess. The pinnacle of absurdity was when an ad that used sex to sell tires.

    I thought someone would like the photo - it is an advertisement on facebook. I thought perhaps it was something Betas would like - apparently not.

    I think it's someone using an expression they are not used to using..... whatever it is. Doesn't look natural one bit.

    The picture works as an advertisement because it's so screwed up that you just don't manage to avoid noticing it! I just jumps out at you with the stupid expression and all. And thanks for the explenation Loki, I didn't even notice the T-shirt or the hands, I was just staring at the expression and I knowingly spotted the logo in the corner.

    You can't see what's wrong with them? They look happy and fun. That's a terrible thing!



    But srsly, the original post looks kinda fake and cheesy, I have nothing wrong with Simpson and Gardner in those pics.

    Of course there's something wrong.

    Photo on the top right is obviously asking you to pay so that she can tell you your type.
    The one on the left is prolly supporting bush in the iraq war.
    The photo on the bottom left is an attractive breeding ground for disease spreading insects.
    And the last one just escaped from a mental hospital.

    What made you think there's nothing wrong???

    Dislike Jennifer Gardner....



    But wtf you guys....she is making a face for the camera...its not like she looks like that all the time, she's a fucking model.



    No Beta I know makes that expression, however when I did a series of impressions of each type a long while back (half innacurate >.< ) thats sort of what my ESFp face was like


    What is your damage against Betas??

    I think I dislike that picture because it *is* superficial. Fake expressions to promote lame ideas is the epitomy of superficiality.

    Didn't say other types can't be superficially judgemental too Particularly those who are sensative to emotive faces, or physically projected Fe in other words.

    But I think Beta NF's are pretty well known for liking aestetics, which is perfectly okay because we all know that isn't the ONLY thing they are interested in. They just seem to focus on them a lot. Thus explaining the bad rep...not everyone knows that aestetics arn't their only interest...

    AND, disclaimer: I KNOW NOT ALL BETA NF'S FOCUS A LOT ON AESTETICS, IT JUST SEEMS TO BE COMMON.

    Yes. Agreed. I do rather consider myself an aesthete. I'd likely call those goofy pictures gauche. Good word. I don't mind emotiveness, just exaggerated emotiveness strikes me as particularly fake.

    Fakeness generally annoys me to no end.

    I don't really focus on the aesthetics of other people, just my own ability to express myself physiclly and spiritually which is obviously a sign of me being a Fe dominant. I could care less about how other people look, or their personal style choices. I actually value individuality and diversity if anything. It's shady, creepy, or clingy personality traits and fake energy people give off that irritates me, and it often makes me feel uneasy, or nervous. Fake Fe is especially frustrating to witness, because I can always see through it.

    I understand that.

    You don't really fit what I mean that much, I just used your comment as an example because it made my point better...I guess,

    Now back when UDP was still Alpha, he would have made the same thread, yet asked "Is this Gamma?"
