    Default Gilly, ScarlettLux, and UDP -- BETA

    I've just been informed that we are all in the same quadra, and I would like to hear what you - the rest of the forum - thinks about this. Please - both SL and Gilly - take the floor here and explain your thoughts.

    background posts, which sparked this one: http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin...6&postcount=89


    I have a question for SL:

    How do I fit into this?

    Seriously though ... I tend to find all Beta posts much more appealing than any posts by other types, it's just a general pattern I've noticed considering how much time I spend in the Beta Quadra section.

    I know my own posts are very self-centered most of the time and not really of any intellectual value, but I'm too lazy these days to say much more than a few random lines here or there.

    Specifically though, I find niffweed actually to be quite entertaining now, if not really annoying in the past Same with discojoe. I really enjoy Gilly's posts, they are very entertaining. I love Herzy's too. Straight and to the point is how I like 'em with a dash of controversy/humor

    The one poster that I can not seem to read much of is ifmd95. I'm not sure why that is - I mean, everytime I see any of his posts, I totally just skip over them. Once I tried to read one or two but that was a bad idea. It's not even that I could not understand his point, or that his point was bad in any way, it's just the way he types things .. his grammar, or his style, that puts me off. I can't read it. Strange... :S

    Fuck off. I JUST said this was a waste of my time; I'm not going back on that now. Besides, I'm already in a bad mood this morning.
    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...

    Spoken like a true ESTp.
    Aww, but Gilly, we're all in the same quadra - we'll work it out. Don't you understand that betas air things out together? And then they get over it the next day. It's no big deal.

    Yeah... that's why you decided you were ESTp after the conversation with SL.
    You must know IT ALL, Gilly.


    Why I don't like you is because you are so full of yourself - you may very well be beta.
    Gee, we get along so smoothly... we must all be in the same quadra.

    Or are you going to say you still know me, and we're socionics buds, and we talk often?
    Yeah right.

    I never posted our aim convos on the forum without your permission you scheming shit.

    I never claimed to be your bud. I identify with you; I never said I liked you or wanted to be your pal. And now I definitely don't.

    You couldn't show an exmaple of my bad Fi if you scoured the internet. Yours, on the other hand, is right here, for all to see.

    I should make a clarification - I don't value your " "
    I think you're "relationship disposition" towards me has been pathetic for some time now, so you're right, I don't value you very much. The fact you keep making it sound like we're close - and you keep trying to talk to me was just a little too much of your bullshit. Who do you think you are trying to fool here with that kind of talk?

    There's nothing private in that AIM - which you started - what, you didn't want me to tell me to go suck a dick here on the forum? It doesn't make a difference. There was hardly anything unusual there. I've betrayed your confidence? Heh...

    Oh, "now"?

    This is the straw that broke your camals back? You must be clueless.

    Do they just not show it?

    Apparently you are capable of provoking a manic bipolar. Congratulations, I hope I've helped your shitty self-image.

    No, Gilly, I choose to not make excuses for my behavior. Nor do I let me self-image get affected by petty trifles such as this. But I suppose I ought to have learned by now yeah - just to not bother with you?

    Nevertheless, I'm willing to understand why I seem so related to beta.

    I will wait for SL to explain what she sees. Sadly, I just expect people to point to this thread and say that's all there is too it. Because I must have so much Se, whenever I show my anger.

    It's low to say that Gilly is simply making an excuse for his behaviour while manic, it's like saying that a person with a broken leg is just using it as an excuse to not walk.
    Agree.

    Sorry to interrupt. Please, do continue.

    Red face

    Wow, lmfao... this thread made my morning, first of all. It's fucking hilarious. Where the hell did this even come from, it's so random?

    I think I missed something from last night until this morning :S

    Okay, namely I'm confused as to exactly why this thread is even necessary ... it does seem like you are trying to provoke something UDP and you clearly do like talking about yourself/drama. See, whenever anyone points that out to you, you just deny it. I can see where Gilly is coming from and that is that you are just so block-headed sometimes that any kind of reasoning with you just goes in circles. There is no way to get through to you, (well, maybe there is, but that's only for the extremely patient) and when we do give you our take as to why you can not be LSE, you just go on a really long tangent, quoting profiles, etc. ... it just gets tiresome to argue with you if you're not going to take our points to heart.

    I've made many points as to why I think you can not be LSE before, and I am not going to re-hash them again. I vividly recall myself making a pretty damn long post regarding that issue and you can search it up somewhere, I don't have the time to do that. The point is, you don't fucking care - you're right when you say you're right and whenever people go against what you've already decided, you just won't hear it. I mean, you'll pretend to listen and then just spout off again on how you are 100% LSE.

    Alright secondly, when were you "informed" of us all being in the same quadra? I did not ever say that outright, if you can remember a recent post of mine, I said that I hoped you were not LSI ... I mean it's clear that I really don't get along with you, neither does Gilly, but that might just be something out of Socionics ... a lot of people have the same view on you here and they aren't Beta - take Salawa for example. Pretty cool person, lucid point about your having a lot of all the time, and how this thread clearly points away from being Delta - well fucking hell, it's true! We all know that anger is not strictly limited to valuing types but come the fuck on, look at the way you are so adamant about everything, you obviously want to fight and "win" in a sense. I don't think any valuing type would even care as much as you do for something as small as this. It's like you're trying to deny how offended you really are. I think even Expat doesn't believe you are LSE? I remember him saying he was confused though, and considering LIE or ESI for you. Not that Expat is be-all and end-all of typers, but he is much more reliable than most of us on here. Correct me if I'm wrong, Expat.

    Maybe you and Gilly talked and he said he thought we were all Beta? I don't know, but I can clearly sense that we are all Ni/Se valuing, and I mean clear as fucking day. If you can't see that in yourself, you really need to step back and take a look at yourself ... wow. You are really self-absorbed. How about you go back and look at every thread you've ever made, and how much it is all about yourself being whatever type you are at the moment (namely LII and LSE) ... it sickens me to read some of your stuff sometimes. It's not even the humorous self-absorption like Ezra ... it's just the kind where you're almost unaware of it! It's getting me angry to think about so I'll stop ...

    As for Gilly being SLE, cool

    Yeah, wow, that IS low and I hope you don't ever say anything like that again because I'm suffering from my own anxiety/depression pretty bad as of late. Not many people at all know about it on this forum because I don't want to come on and moan about my troubles or whatever .. but realize that it's very real and does affect judgment, behavior, etc.

    "it just gets tiresome to argue with you if you're not going to take our points to heart."

    How can I convince you that I do take your points to heart?
    What do you mean?

    the ad at the bottom of this page features a caricature of a caucasian woman with red hair and wearing some kind of purple garment. her eyes are closed and she appears to be dreaming of a bright red heart. the ad features the text "Are you romantic?" and also has a large red button on the right hand side of the ad with the text Take the quiz.

    I actually CAN see the possibility for SLE in Ezra if I try, because when I attempted to get his goat in that thread, the way he reacted was much more in an ST fashion. However, he's not very observant, *shrug* mistaking people's avatars for others on a couple occassions, if that means anything at all (prob. not).

    Gilly on the other hand, sort of does this freak-out kind of thing. It's amusing but totally uncontrolled (yes, bipolar, I know) and his reactions all seem Neish to me. Whatever. People will settle on the types they think they are, not the types anyone else thinks they are, and arguing with them on that can be silly. They have to come to their own conclusions, unless they're specifically asking for input.
    I am a big goofball. Sorry that doesn't conform to your view of Se types; many would beg to differ, I'm sure.

    How exactly does one have an Ne-ish reaction?

    Glad you find my psychotic breaks amusing Fuck you, too.

    And, you do realize that this last sentence is one of the manifestations of weak Ne, do you not?

    hehe. Yeah, it is amusing, sorry that offends you, lol.
    I hope one of your children becomes severely mentally ill. I'm sure it'll be hillarious then. Think about that for a minute or two.

    UDP, this thread casts you in LSI light
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

    I think you should be able to deduce from this thread that there never has been, nor will there ever be, anything resembling a "friendship" between Jesse and I.

    I didn't particularly dislike him until this incident, although he had left me feeling frustrated on multiple occasions.

    Item 1

    Fine, I'll try and start you guys off:

    +Loud, LOUD laughing... lots of facial expressions, emotiveness and general obnoxiousness. This goes for all the Beta types, actually. Even the introverts, whom can appear passive (INFps) and/or too serious (ISTjs) will really crack out in psychotic sounding laughter when they think something is funny

    +Competitive FIGHTING spirit... None of the Beta types will let anything get in their way. Probably the first to get angry @ authority or being treated unfairly. Attempting to create "revolutionary" stances on things to change around whatever is unappealing to them.

    +Seem pretty crazy at first glance... as UDP pointed out ever so nicely, when he looks at the behavior of Beta types, he usually thinks "they have some sort of mental problem". Yes, we are known for kookiness. The Fe + Se + Ni + Ti leads to fiercely dramatic emotional expression of inner desires and having those inner desires manifest themselves in the outside world no matter what, and believing that they are in fact, CORRECT.
    This is from the first page of the field guide, written by SL.
    I do not identify with beta spirit, and as SL pointed out, I have felt this way for a long time.




    Item 2 - http://wikisocion.org/en/index.php?title=Beta_Quadra

    Group behavior

    Preference for larger groups where participation is "collective" rather than focused on individuals for any length of time, but with likely "domination" by more assertive individuals. Loud exchange of jokes for the benefit of the group, occasionally at one individual's expense. Attempt at drawing others into the group activity: for example, in a situation where there are "group rituals" going on (as in drinking, dancing, etc), good-natured pressure on "outsiders" to also participate in them, with a sort of puzzled dismay if they prefer not to. In more subdued moments, discussion of ideas involving present trends and political implications, with strong views voiced. Personal experiences tend to be discussed from the point of view of their external impact rather than the individual's own personal view of them.
    from wikisocion
    - I cannot stand group behavior like this. I have never in my life done the following: "good-natured pressure on "outsiders" to also participate in them, with a sort of puzzled dismay if they prefer not to." - and I particularly do not like those people that do this to me. One side of my family is predominantly beta, and I have uneasy relations with them primarily because of this. I almost walked out of a family gathering at one point because I was entirely not in the mood (long story - maybe later) for this "good natured pressure" or coercing of me - I was prepared to walk out, slam the door, and walk 3 miles at night to my own home.

    Also, I cannot stand loud atmospheres. The "at one individual's expense" often bothers me as well, and seems combative and immature - something I do not desire, or enjoy.


    When larger social events are organized by Betas (such as parties, receptions etc), they show an inclination to promote activities that will lead to the guests involved as a single group, such as games and shows; dislike for the "quieter" form of events where guests tend to quietly form smaller groups in more intimate atmospheres, which Betas tend to see as boring.
    I am the exact opposite of this - and yet I am Beta? I much prefer quieter events; I am bored at large events.


    For Betas the activity or the topic are not as important as the atmosphere. Therefore when a group of betas is together, they tend to end up trying to entertain each other. They exchange fun (and often loud) stories to feed the atmosphere, so that the group energy won't run out. People talk fast and they often add comments to other people's stories if they feel that the pace is slowing down. When someone starts to talk, he takes on the obligation to entertain for the duration of the monologue and, in a friendly group, other people only interrupt to try and help him keep control of the atmosphere.
    I don't really care about "fun and often loud stories" - that certainly is now how I spend my time relaxing, or how I want to spend my free time.

    Talking about personal matters in a group is not something that Betas generally do. It's viewed almost as treachery when something that was told in a one-on-one conversation is retold in front of a group, or when someone criticizes another person's traits in front of the group. Betas believe such things should be told in private and should not be used to embarrass or belittle a friend.
    N/A, no comments I guess. I don't have any problem addressing what needs to be said.

    Betas also don't like it when people tell long, slow stories. Betas try to be polite and listen to the story, and they will forgive you if it was boring for them, but if someone does it too often they might not be invited back. Betas restrict slow stories to one-on-one conversations. However, IEIs are more likely to adjust to the slower stories because they are very flexible conversationalists.
    This does not bother me.



    ... how I am "beta" and "Fe valuing" I do not see.
    There are many stories from my beta family so I won't give them a number.
    But, they "relax" by playing competitive board games against each other, late into the evening sometimes. I rarely play with them, only if I really feel like it. Tonight, I walked out, deliberately and directly avoiding an offer to play another board game - despite being proded by two ENFjs. Their provocations only irritated me further. I would consider doing it more often out of a sense of loyalty - but provoking me to be a part of their competitive atmosphere is extremely unappealing. So I decided to come home and do my own thing, which was much, much, much more enjoyable than staying and playing a board game, competitively, amongst my family.

    This profile talks about how beta's feel an odd sense of disappointment when people don't join in? I do not understand this, and never expect anyone to necessarily join into what I do - I think it is rude to just expect people, and I dislike it even more when this "expectation" that you have on others, when unfulfilled, leads to disappointment, or even resentment. It's your own fault for expecting such a thing, you're not entitled to being mad at someone because they did not comply with your expectations.



    PS: one thing I would like to add, any time you are "torn" between someone being in opposing quadras, that is not really a "narrow margin". There is no "fine line" here, there are blatant differences.
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.
