    Default What do you like about your opposing quadra?

    As a Delta, I like the way Betas play as a team. I know quite a few of them and tend to be people who respect the way institutions work and their place on it. I tend to be more individualistic and do things my way, disregarding my position within an organization...

    I like that betas fill roles that I think should exist but that I wouldn't enjoy.

    I like that clarity and direct attention that Beta STs can sometimes have, as if no paying attention to miniscule details, I'm setting out on just what I'm focusing on.

    That I re-typed and lumped everyone who didn't conform to my smart superiority LSE complex as beta. And all was well in the world.

    But seriously, I find rationals there to be rational and irrationals irrational?

    It's alright absurd. Ironically everyone else preserves their delta typings too, usually for just the average goodie-2-shoe with no personality, so people lack an understanding of what delta really means. Probably have nothing to say about us but unwarranted ill-informed BS

    Well, I used to tell people 'get a life', but in light of new evidence I'm going to yell 'get a personality' now.

    If I'm Alpha, I love my Gammas for their fierce loyalty and integrity. My SEE best friend has changed his persona somewhat over the years but I know he is always the same inside, nothing could ever stop him being him and I love and admire that because he keeps me grounded in a way.

    If I'm Beta, I love Deltas for their stabity and reliability. My parents are Delta and I often get just a good, solid, reliable vibe from LSEs. I feel safe that my parents will always accept and love me...even if they can't help judging the crap out of me, lol.
    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...

    I'm having a beer now and all I've got to say is, fuck people who fuck with me, and fuck people who fuck with people who happen to be my kind of people.

    Weiner, Weiner!

    bleep!

    Hey gais. Mind telling me what you think you are doing here so late at night. Might I remind you that breaking the rules of quadra socionics is a felony here, one that carries a maximum sentence of being retyped for eternity in the first circle of hell.

    Have a good night now.

    I like Gammas that, like us, they do not get hooked up into the concrete, but they can see the abstract similarities between seemingly disconnected things and people. They can identify with others without resorting to a primitive inventory of practical traits and deeds. They can understand the contingency of the "real things". They have the potential to see the same patterns that apply to everything, beyond the veil of the substantive; without having them experienced in advance, that is. Their abstract essence. They can distinguish the religiousness in the scientist and the critical thinking in the religious. They can see the prince in the pauper and the pauper in the prince. As we can jump boats, they can jump boats, this will happen even when the contemporary morals will build the boat of the boat-jumpers and the boat of the non boat-jumpers. A boat is only a boat and its sailors are as sailors as the others. We, the Democratics, are the metasailors.
    Shock intuition, diamond logic.
