    Default Show Affection (but be divisible by 4)

    We've had threads on the 5 languages of love. Forget that; 5 is no more compatible with socionics than is enneagram.

    Si-creatives show affection by gifts of food. How about the other types?

    Ne-base shows affection by creating alternatives, and showing a brighter future in a very appealing light.

    Ti-creative produces systems and guidelines to weigh energy, classifying them into neat little boxes that Fe types generally find easier to work with.
    She is wise
    beyond words
    beautiful within
    her soul
    brighter than
    the sun
    lovelier than
    love
    dreams larger
    than life
    and does not
    understand the
    meaning of no.
    Because everything
    through her, and in her, is
    "Yes, it will be done."

    I show my affection by giving gifts of sweet meats and assorted cheeses, blueberries, summer wine, and malt liquor in a paper bag. This is usually accompanied by an improvised sonnet on the nature of IEs and duality, and topped off with an anthem to Model A which is sung in twelves parts to the main theme of the pokemon cartoon. If I'm feeling especially affection the last of these rituals are performed whilst wearing bearskin and a speedo atop a unicycle.

    Humans have five extremities, a condition obviously incompatible with socionics (ALL HAIL THE ONE TRUE POWER). To correct this deficiency is it best in each case to amputate a select limb, or do you prefer removal of the head?

    No, actually I plan on growing two more arms, so that would make 7 and it would be easier at that point to add one than to subtract three.

    You can't get rid of the head, because you'd be getting rid of all 32 teeth. One of those teeth is bound to be a perfect representation of each type and subtype.

    Oh shit, I think I'm on to something. Be back later.

    ILIs show affection by criticizing you.

    They also show other emotions this way.

    I want to see the anthem to Model A. I prefer more clothing, though.

    This is the beat I use when laying down the anthem in bearskin+speedo+unicycle



    I use this background for more formal occasions, I wear a full tuxedo with a priest-like collar, usually performed in a semi-open location while its raining. Usually the lyrics to the anthem change to take on a more nostalgic and melancholy mood.

    First if I really had to chose of the five it would be physical touch and quality time; normal cases would be words of affirmation or deeds, though I tend to notice the former more easily, yet normal cases are boring. Gifts and physical touch seem like too much work and meaning to apply to everyone, probably only my significant other.

    If I could show affection by being creative and imaginative I would. This is what's supposed to come easy to IEIs, from descriptions, like I have written old gfs songs and piano literature, to say I like their company or miss them. I really want to let people know how I feel deep inside about musical expression, it's beyond words to me, esp when you get the whole symphonic spectrum involved and an out-of-this-world romantic adventure. So to answer the question, affection to me reflects into art and into a bigger ideal. If I could share that with someone special, it would mean a lot to me. I don't underrate physical touch and quality time though.

    I remember discussing the love languages with a group of friends. I said to gain a different perspective, "I don't relate much to physical touch," and my friend blurted out, "yeah right, look at you" as though I always look sensitive, like I want a hug or to be physically close to someone. The appearance probably cannot deny.

    Se shows affection by noticing the Ni derping in a little corner all by itself, going over and checking out what's really inside, if there's anything at all.

    Following which, it will start ritual abuse if it cannot discover much. This results in Ni withdrawal, which results in Se penetration, infiltration, and aggression.

    Very sexy stuff.
    She is wise
    beyond words
    beautiful within
    her soul
    brighter than
    the sun
    lovelier than
    love
    dreams larger
    than life
    and does not
    understand the
    meaning of no.
    Because everything
    through her, and in her, is
    "Yes, it will be done."

    I'm very direct verbally.

    If I want to show affection, I just say something nice to her what I really mean.

    Do other ILI's do this kind of thing? They seem to be reluctant in saying nice things, because SEEs tend to run wild with it.

    I give compliments when they're genuine though I'm more likely to show appreciation in other ways because it's often difficult for me to verbalize such things. As to whether Jarno is properly ILI, compare his posts with those of his ostensible identicals and draw your own conclusions.

    Omg, not even joking. We really do need to make a real video game where you can learn socionics theory by practicing it. But oh well, that's on the infinite list of things to do, which I will complete someday when I become immortal.

    What thread am I posting in, anyway? I have about twenty different tabs open on my browser. Oh yeah, showing affection. The stereotype about Si feeding is actually true for me. If I offer to make food for someone it is actually a huge big deal. I even feel somewhat guilty and embarrassed about it and feel as though I have somehow violated them by feeding them.

    I could also give too much information having to do with physical touch, but I am not in the kind of mood where I'm able to blurt things out without worrying about the consequences, so I will save it for another day.

    I also show it through eye contact, but that's not necessarily 'affection,' it's more like 'connection,' there is a bond between us, or we both know and understand something. This feeling isn't the same as 'affection.' It is something more intense and spiritual, something deeper than what the word 'affection' means to me. This is harder to find than affection. It requires some kind of energy interaction that I do not know how to explain. Sometimes it resembles 'we are in this together,' a feeling of camaraderie, and it is rare for me to feel that way, because I have been disconnected from people in so many ways.

    yeah ILI's can give compliments, although it's maybe a bit rare. But it's a myth that we are robots.

    But I tend to be direct. I just say, "I like you very much", when I want to say that I like her very much :-)

    The SEE appreciates honesty, and that's what ILI's are good at, because they say everything in your face.
