I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE
Best description of functions:
Crazy, light energy is always a good.
Appeal to our curiosity.
A sense of humour. Bonus points if it includes...
Pop culture references. What, did you think I was going to say "puns"?
A sense of humour--even if it's not in a delivery sense, but an ability to laugh, even if it's an awkward throat-laugh, like, "Eheheh, (oh God, what's he going to say next...)"
Not taking things seriously. Ever. Alpha is not the serious business quadra, that's Gamma. Especially the business part.
Being respectful of others' levels of comfort in a group setting. Thick skin is good, making people uncomfortable is not.
Not starting shit. This is part of the "comfort levels" comment above. Stirring controversy is a quick way of alienating your friendly neighbourhood SEI. I hear Alpha NTs enjoy a good debate, though. Only ESEs are allowed to stir up an emotional mess, because they're... well, I won't offend my Activators
Say smart things. Alphas value intellect and wit. If you can't say anything smart, listen to someone offering up their intelligence. This is equally as good.
Stan is not my real name.
Lol. And the sex jokes.
But it's always kind of disappointing when Deltas don't really seem to "get" Alpha. Rick's just as guilty, and I shudder to think what my Delta cadre at school thought of me
I did a thread on this years back, only I was serious.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-- Mark Twain

I actually think I'm rather easy to win over. The trick is to be open, non-judgmental, and open to ideas and experiences that are a little out of the norm. Saying yes to "Hey, you want to run through the parking lot and back because we can?" works wonders. Giving nice hugs works, too.
Bring cake.It is true, the cake is a lie.We're a one-dimensional Quadra, not a zero-dimensional Quadra.
