    Hm, I'm reminded of the joke post from a while back:

    Delta works.
    Alpha plays.
    Beta pwns.
    Gamma owns.

    omg, I'm so saving that picture onto my hd.

    I called it "Under the Reich"
    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...

    Simply owning without developing capital does not seem particularly Gamma-like. Owning is a fairly static state. I would actually imagine that Delta and Gamma should be reversed in this joke.

    Agreed.

    Which element are you saying should be valued in its static form? I thought was emphasized there for both Gamma and Beta, but with an emotional emphasis for Beta anda practical emphasis for Gamma (emphasizing the Xe functions for each quadra, but ignoring Ne).

    I used 'static' primarily in its standard non-Socionics meaning. In terms of Gamma, the quadra tends towards constantly working, since, on the whole, they seek to increase the value or quantity of what they have. Deltas work only in so far as to reach a point of homeostasis in which they have enough financial stability and security to stop.

    Sure, we want to be acknowledged but... master?
    I think betas will give up adoration from the masses for action from the masses.

    I might be wrong.
    "What is love?"
    "The total absence of fear," said the Master.
    "What is it we fear?"
    "Love," said the Master.

    I chose Love
