    Default Zero Punctuation

    This is mainly for people who are into gaming, though the reviews are funny and brief enough for anyone to appreciate.

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/arti...opunctuation.1

    It's a series of video reviews by Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. Each one is only four minutes long and presented entirely in cartoon animation and narrated by Croshaw in manic fashion, humorously employing cynical, disgruntled wit to pick apart each game's flaws.

    He overuses the word "ostensibly", so maybe he is INTp.

    Third thread, eh? Well this one is better, faster, stronger, etc.

    Actually, the videos are very funny and also very short, so it's hardly a lot of effort to click on one and suggest a type.

    So do it, everyone, or I will burn you alive.

    I see where you get your criticism for the Halo trilogy from.

    I've hated Halo since I got hyped/suckered into buying Halo 2 and was shocked at how mediocre and boring it was.

    I'd like to add that (correct me if I'm wrong) Peter didn't really play Halo 2 multi-player.


    Don't know if it's really relevant but...felt I should mention that too....for whatever reason.

    ostensibly so, but many type descriptions (indeed, ostensibly all of them) seem to indicate that ILIs are minimalistically lexicographical, and thus ostensibly your conclusion might be incorrect insamuch as it contradicts the ostensible behavior of this individual.

    I love that. I remember typing him at some point, but I don't remember what type. Might have been INTp.

    INTps are most likely to use obsolete words. I think it's their way of adding "expressions" to their talk. They have to say, "ostensibly", whereas I just say, "like, SEEMS so! YEAH!".

    Bumping this thread. I'm having doubts about his type. Yahtzee is similar to my supervisor and both are similar to Erkki's highschool classmate. They all have the same features - same mannerisms, static voice, calm. They all use plenty of words but they're nevertheless interesting to talk with.

    Me and Erkki were torn between two types for them all - ENTp and INTp. We started with the assumption that Yahtzee was INTp so they should all be INTp. However, in the end, ENTp won. The reason is extroversion. They might look introverted, but in a group, they add their own ideas and thoughts, they rarely simply absorb and reflect the ideas of others. That's how IP types usually would operate.

    Also, non of them is really the shy or quiet type. They have very clear personalities that they bring with them to all situations and groups. To me that says "extrovert". They're not obnoxious. Their personality is pleasant, just not introverted.

    The one on the left is Yahtzee.

    Is he ENTp?

    He uses all the weird words and he uses them well. Have you seen any of his game reviews?

    He doesn't really move at all, and seems kinda stiff, so I'm thinking maybe LII. But it was pretty much based on that.
