Why everyone thinks Alphas are narcisstic idiots:
The Egbert Human
„Man can do what he wants but he cannot want what he wants.“
– Arthur Schopenhauer
I'm pretty much the icon for Alpha intellectualism. Look at my glasses and all the books I'm reading!
Because they smoke crack ?
The evidence is clear and unequivocal.
Is that a fox ?
It's a dog, dawg.
^That's the reason Gammas are unhappier and less smart than everyone else. Rich foods and strong alcohol all the time!
Because they don't care about material things and are not Fi valuing...they don't let empathetic emotions sink them down. That's important to remain stress free, happy, and go lucky kind of touch. They carry very little guilt or guilty feelings that others do.
They let things slide off their backs easily.

Dual type (as per tcaudilllg)
Enneagram 2w1sw(1w9) helps others to live up to their own standards of what a good person is and is very behind the scenes in the process.

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:
Because we can say Flying Burritos from the planet Buriton and simply smile because it's silly, and we can find it hilarious when a Gamma would want to make a serious restaurant business out of it.
not true.. . . Alphas are happier and smarter than everyone else.
Are you sure???
alphas aren't happier they just hide all negative feelings behind a dainty, elfish exterior.
my avatar presents a dainty elfish exterior.
what would you infer i was?
Hm, I might consider LSI. Not too sure about it though.
i can not stand against such powerful rethorics
If Alphas truly were happier, it would probably be because they value both Fe and Si...
Happiness is such a subjective thing, though...someone of a particular type may appear more happy than someone of another type, when they're really less happy and just not showing it.
My life's work (haha):
Input, PLEASEAnd thank you
A serious face can hide a happy heart *smile breaks out anyways*
The people who laugh the most have had the most to cry about.
Alphas, on a very superficial level, could be seen to having a higher propensity for both those things, since we're largely the quadra of "pop and intellectualism". Obviously humor is quadra-independent, as is the actual physical act of laughter.
Though that said, I find myself unleashing far less belly-laughs in predominantly out-of-quadra environments than amongst other Alphas This is wholly dismissible as the result of value clashes, however.
Lol, it's an LII deadpan duel! Neither combatant can win, but either way every onlooker wins!
