    Default Communication goals

    Alpha - intent
    Beta - impact
    Delta - delivery
    Gamma - content

    I like those. By impact not necessarily force but also what emotional effect it has on me.

    Yes, Alpha being the stereotypical 'young' quadra- good intentions is probably the purest thing to them. This is also why sometimes they can cover up being assholes in the guise of just joking.

    Deltas and delivery? Hmm. I can see that. Or maybe just...'honesty.'

    Gammas and content, hell yeah. Get the content wrong or they think you're missing a fact, Gamma is all over you.

    Why honesty? By 'delivery', I meant the method in which they communicate something ... e.g. being tactful etc.

    Not sure I think Gamma should be "delivery;" that sounds more Fe oriented. You could theoretically switch Gamma and Beta, but delivery is pretty weak in general, IMO.
    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...

    Delivery is delta.

    I'm fine with 'delivery.' I'm sure it's not in any way exclusive to Delta though.

    To me, delivery sounded like deliberate non-abrasiveness and sensitivity to another's feelings. I don't think it sounds all that "Fe oriented."

    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    Clarity > delivery

    Helpfulness, too, for Delta.

    EDIT: Helpfulness as in motive, not necessarily what really happens.

    I have also noticed that Deltas often tend to make an 'impact' without intending to.

    Alpha is very good, not so sure about Delta. Also, "impact" to me sounds like a generic thing (and "content" ). How about "effect" for Beta?
