    Alphas, you fascinate me. There was a time when I thought I was Alpha, until I studied socionics a bit more. But, anyway, I am fascinated by the kind of outlook this quote implies. This really is the way you operate, isn't it?

    I fully concur. It's much more fulfilling imo to talk about ideas and discuss possibilities than actually putting the foot to the pedal and getting productive. Let's just have fun srsly.

    For me ... it is bigger. I have all these dreams and aspirations and I have no idea how to practically apply them to my life and it leaves me feeling really frustrated sometimes.

    That is one of the most pro pictures I have ever seen.

    Anyway, it's a scary thing. You hear about a new job and you're like "That's the one for me", and then you look into it and there's something there that you don't like.

    I suppose you have to find something you kinda like and just follow the system and hope it all comes out well.

    This is definitely something I notice in the ENTp's I know... and I love discussing things w them [Ne stuff, I suppose, in socionics terms], but then there's that point of departure, where I'm like, "Okay, let's do it!" And they almost seem taken aback sometimes, as if they expected me to know they were never serious in a practical sense. And then we start back at the beginning, with the next round of craziness....

    You're ISFp, right? I wonder how you and ENTp's reconcile this kind of frustration you feel. Do you build something solid together, or are you content, when in each other's company, to stick with ideas alone??

    Yes, I am.
    No, nothing solid in my experience. I dated an ENTp for over a year and I was much more of a "doer" then he was, and, well, that's saying a lot because I'm pretty lazy.

    And that's the part I LOVE about SEIs. "Wait what? you actually want to do this? You know it's ridiculous right? Well maybe we should do it, let's go!"

    Story time!

    I was chilling with my SEI friend (<3) and she was talking about how she wanted to paint her room, but she didn't know what colours yet. And I got all excited and said we should go for an adventure to the store and look and paint chips together before we head to the movies. And she was totally surprised that I would actually want to do such a thing but then she got excited too because looking at paint chips is fun.

    Anyways.

    The point was that usually things go down like this for my SEI friend and I. She makes a vague comment about something, I take it and make a crazy suggestion, she questions the plausibility of it, I shoot down all the things that could possibly go wrong or minimalize the fear of consequence, she gets excited too and says she's actually always wanted to do something like that, I'm surprised that someone actually thinks I have a good idea, we go and do our thing. Yeah, it's fun.

    So basically, you have a partner in crime. I can't imagine having someone around who would pull off my crazy ideas; I'm too mischievous (IMO).

    ILE: How about this one?

    Actually, it went down very similar to that...

    Me: How about this colour?
    SEI: Uhh...that kind of looks like puke
    Me: Does it? *looks at it again* Yeah I guess it does. I thought it was kind of earthy...
    SEI: Well you're on the right track at least
    Me: What about this? *takes out a crazy dark fushia colour*
    SEI: Wow, it's so bold!
    Me: I know! Just think of how awesome it would look with all those browns
    SEI: I always wanted to do something bold like that...but what if it's over kill?
    Me: No way, there's no such thing as over kill. But here, I took pictures of your room so we could compare.
    SEI: You did?
    Me: Yeah I- HOLY CRAP!!! Take this! *tosses camera phone over* ZOMG <--(I actually say this IRL) it's a floating rubber duck light!!
    SEI: Um, yeah, they're for hot tubs and stuff *is looking at room pics and colour*
    Me: Who cares what it's for!! I could buy it and get a big bowl from the dollar store and put water in it and have like this glowing plastic bowl of water as a lamp and have a fucking light up rubber ducky floating around in the water!!!!! THAT WOULD BE AWESOMEEE!!!!
    SEI: *looks up* Actually, that would be really cool.
    ME: I KNOWWWWWW~

    I'm paraphrasing, but that's generally how it happened.

    That's a hilariously awesome tradition.

    On one side of my family we like to get drunk and play euchre together, which is perhaps less cool that destroying sandcastles, but definitely more fun.

    My sperm castle. With it's baby sperm. Also, the first pic, the top view before I added the tail, was so aesthetically pleasing I had to keep it. Mmm, geometrically perfect shapes.

    Adorable!! I made little squeaking sounds looking at it it's sooo adorable, I'd eat it up! But then I'd have a mouth full of sand, and I really don't swing that way.
