    If turquoise-green pants aren't the definition of charisma, I don't know what is.

    The Gamma lifestyle seems to orient mostly around smoking indoors on Tinychat and dancing to terrible music videos from a bygone era.

    We need to reduce the gamma lifestyle to a concise statement or paragraph.

    Gammas seek to establish stable aggregate growth in real world developments by optimizing various actions against emerging constraints. (Now somebody add in all the Fi/Se elements to it. )

    I want to see what happens when these ideas are digested and reinterpeted. The object is to see the transformation of understanding. Its an alpha thing.

    Anyway, I am looking for stuff like this quote from your tumblr:

    "Don’t hang out with people who don’t love you. Don’t try to impress people who aren’t worth it. Don’t try to win people over who aren’t worth it. Focus on yourself, and focus on the people who are really awesome and who love you. Don’t hang out with people who make you feel like shit. Don’t spend your energy on them. There is so much pressure to be part of the right thing: well, you should create the right thing. If you don’t see it, create it. If you don’t see what you want, be the change you want to see."

    Beth Ditto (via viridiandreamer)"

    But turn this into a discourse with other members.

    Not really mottos, but what is it that is the "Tao of Gamma." I can get what the gamma NTs want, but what is the whole picture of their world? Alphas want to connect people to ideas and things that they never knew that they wanted or needed. We are like into discovery. What is your thing?

    well the whole quadra thing, as i remember reading, is something like

    alpha - come up with idea
    beta - revolutionize/put it into effect
    gamma - refine/polish
    delta - maintain

    But i wanted you to get all worked up and excited about it, like if you do not get to do it, you are going to cry! And put it into effect as the total package!

    i kind of see gamma as the anti-alpha quadra, not in the literal sense but alpha to me is posh and hip and cool and into defining styles and subcultures and gamma shits on top of it.

    This just sounds like economics jargon rather than "lifestyle"

    Anyway really this is a personal question and I absolutely doubt you will be able to get anything out of it, Saberstorm

    The thing is, I actually like good music, whereas the stuff you like only gets played at a house parties for deaf people.

    I don't negate the fact that you know everything about music except how to enjoy it and seeing you actually know and are not mistaken about anything, I would like you to state with 100% certainty what is that I am listening to. You can't judge a person on 99%, so...

    Besides, you're so illogical it hurts, for you state once, I quote:

    And you're telling me you actually listen to "good music" whatever that means. I take it you classify music according to good and bad...

    You said I listen to crap, I said you listen to crap. There's no logic involved. No need to try and invoke it over comments made in jest.

    Sure I did, but I didn't say I listen to "good music" whilst stating that "it is terrible". Music is music to me. Anyway, in a way you buried yourself just like that, in jest of course.

    Are you really worried you're not a logical type now? You seem to be trying very hard to seem logical.

    I'm not trying anything, never did in my whole life, you on the other hand know for certain I am trying something which is funny for you went from good and terrible music to discussing my Sociotype.

    And I have no worries whatsoever whereas you "seem" to have them, for if you didn't you wouldn't mention it. Same goes for anyone out there and the fact you actually got your panties in a twist over music like so many people on here do and at the same time, like anndelise said, shrink like a midget when someone out there gets vocal about it and you don't want to hear it, is best part this forum called the16types.youwillnevergetoutofherefortherestofyou rlife.info has to offer.

    So I'm not trying anything, you're allowed to self-type gamma, it's a god's given right, you're allowed to state that Gammas listen to terrible music and say you're into "good music" while others are not, in jest.

    So, so much for trying very hard to be logical on my part. And no need to flip like a burger, I actually agree with your comment, first one.

    Yes, there is. Agree.

    Same goes for IEEs (the more irrational wacky ones), ILIs, ILEs, IEIs, LIIs, LIEs, SEEs, SLEs and EIEs this site keeps in a storage on my part. I bet with time, that is, some day, there is going to be more.

    I don't lose hope.
