I pity your souls
Nothing. I must not be aristocratic then.
I tend not to get proud. What I admire in others is willpower, determination, autonomy and vision. These things are also paramount for my self-respect.
Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.
betas run everyone else's shit...
Mortal, mortal, what would you
With that beauty once was yours?
Perishable is the dew,
And the dust endures.

Honestly, I like all of the types in Delta a lot... If I was to pick a unifying characteristic--hmm, i guess that 'genuine' would be the word. Sometimes it's covert, but there's a sincerity that's great and unique to delta.
I'm interested to hear if anyone has any Delta stereotypes..? I mean, I know the other quadra's stereotypes, but Delta is sometimes described as 'kinda like alpha, but a little more serious.' lol
WE LIEK ALL BECUM RICH AND MAEK LOTZA MONEHS AND PISS OFF LOTZA PEOPLES IN DA PROCESS LIEK
Seriously though, I don't take pride in the quadra itself.. If I'm going to have pride, it's pride in individuals rather than anything else. Saying that though, in better times I sometimes feel proud to be ILI.. I wouldn't want to be any other type, but then again when you see the world primarily through your ego block, why would you? Excluding things like low self-esteem and idolising other types etc.. bah I dunno. Ignore me.

Proud of? The good people that inhabit Beta! Well minus that one annoying SLE in my Earth Science class....
Well lets see, I admire Alpha for their desire to learn, and for their creativity.

STRENGTH and HONOUR!
I really respect my buddy, an ESTj, who's just a young guy, but a very big family man and an extremely hard worker. Doesn't matter how bagged out or stressed he is, he's always got a big grin on his face.

I respect the fact that we can laugh at shit when everyone's being too serious. Fuck getting stressed out dude.
