heard about this exact thing tonight when talking to an SLE, my brother. he was telling me about a certain situation in which personal information he told to somebody somehow reached someone that it shouldn't have. he said, "when I say something like that to somebody, I expect them to understand that I'm telling it to them in confidence." then he went on about how his whole system and command of this certain situation (which involved many people) was ruined, because of this one betrayal of information, and how angry it made him (both because of being betrayed that way, and of losing his perfect command of everything.)wikisocion on the beta quadra
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.
do other betas relate? actually, this seems like something ANYONE would value, at least to me; I can't see why you wouldn't? however, it was written in the beta section for a reason, so what exactly is it about this behavior that makes it "beta"? what do other non-beta types think of this?
