    Default The Beta way of world domination

    I'm actually supposed to be working on a gazillion stuff so I'll just start off with a question and maybe write my own mini essay when I have the time lol.

    So, Beta NFs and STs... How do you go about your secret world domination plan?

    I'm curious about the different ways that we go about it and how the methods complement each other in the end.

    I want to be ISTp.

    These people often have an earthy, mysterious quality to them. They are slow to commit, but once they do it is with an attitude of life commitment, to the establishment of an impermeable bond. Others can be taken aback by how suddenly and completely this type can lock into them, and by the depth of understanding of the other’s condition. They attach to others at an organic, root level, in contrast to the other subvariant’s surface formality. The sanctuary of home is of paramount concern, and this type takes particular delight in decorating their spaces to reflect their cherished sense of taste and depth. Depth and discrimination characterize this stacking.

    Motivation: to live in a secure, comfortable environment where they can pursue their private interests in depth.

    I don't want to destroy the world, and I sure as hell don't want to be responsible for it, so no domination with my sandwich, thanks.

    The same way we always do Pinky... Cartoon References and Shunning.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    I tend to dominate by laying low and being very respectful, and then swiftly striking at an opportune time. First, I establish respect by being kind and accepting. People do not perceive me as a threat, and let their guard down around me. My "strike" usually takes the form of bluntly calling out what I see as childish or pathetic behavior, and stating the consequence of it. Then I move on, without belaboring the point.

    I find this is very effective in swaying an atmosphere toward harmony, and in getting people to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions. If I were dominating a situation, this would pretty much be the extent of my interest in dominating.

    I'll only do it if it is being run by incompetent people and I can run it better. Otherwise, it is just way too much work.

    Come to power the same way America did. Make calculated moves to win the best position of power. I wouldn't want to be the king tho. The crown lays heavy on those who can't handle it. Too much responsibility being a leader. I got my own shit to worry about

    Convince people to like you, work hard, don't sleep.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    That's not dominance.

    That made me feel old. I was really into the quadra government stuff for a while.

    I think Alphas had sociocracy, Gammas had capitalism, Betas had dictatorship, and Deltas had republic. Or something like that.

    I remember Alphas were the explorers (finding the new land), Betas the conquerors (claiming the new land), Gammas set up the systems and structures the new land would function in, and Deltas settled the new land.
