    Default hypothetical situation

    Let's say there's this family, and the parents are abusive/negligent in some way. The oldest child is an LSI, the middle a psycho (abusive) ILI, and the youngest an LSI. Let's say the oldest had to more or less raise the other two, to keep them safe from their parents, each other, and the outside world. What type would that oldest LSI look like?

    They'd look like an LSI. What a dumb question.

    Looks like a lot of things. Always a brave face... being the only one of the siblings to never have been admitted inpatient in "behavior health" for psychotic breaks and suicide attempts and so on. All parents and siblings having been suicidal at some point. Always having to be the strong one, and knowing damn well as a child (as best I could, having been totally sheltered from society) what would and wouldn't work to make the whole situation as safe as possible.

    My little sister swears I've saved her life on a handful (if not more) occasions.

    LSIs tend to be great at being responsible, dutiful, etc, and a situation like that would only accentuate those qualities. Most likely, they'd look more obviously like their own type, not less.

    Even if the abusive authority in his/her household when he/she was a child only responded to emotional fits?

    You are offered $1,000,000 USD (or the equivalent in whatever currency) for the following act: Before you are ten pistols -- only one of which is loaded. You must pick up one of the pistols, point it at your forehead, and pull the trigger. If you can do this and walk away you do so a millionaire. Would you accept the risk?

    No. Unless I'm desperate for some reason I can't think of (because any reason I can think of I can also think of other solutions for).

    You are leading 100 people in a survivalist situation, when suddenly your lives are in danger and you must choose between two courses of action. One would cause 10 of the people to die and everyone else would live, the other would have a 70% chance of saving everyone but were it to fail then everyone would die. Which would you choose?

    Do I get to pick the people to die? Cause chances are some people the group is better off without long term. (Think Jack from Lost.)

    If none of them are dangerous people (like Jack), just scared civilians and/or assets, then I'd take the 70% route.

    hmm interesting

    If a new medicine were developed that would cure arthritis but cause a fatal reaction in 1% of those who took it, would you want it to be released to the public?

    if you could meet hitta in person but there was a 10% chance that he'd show up in nothing but tighty whities with an erection, would you go?

    Yes, that's what I've seen around.

    Yeah I would almost think this situation would make anyone seem more like an LSI or ESI, they are the "solid rocks" of the socion.
    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...

    So what would you say was the cost of all that? If you don't mind me asking...
