    i meant to put, "i don't type myself and i'm offended that i lack a voice" but i fucked up and left the typeless disenfranchised. i also should have had an option for not being alpha but relating. i'm such a failure.

    Definitely silly.

    The other day I was having a conversation with a delta NF about Moby Dick, who said that "the whale may be evil, but Ahab doesn't seem like a nice man," and I joked, "it's insinuated that it's his early experiences with whales that made him that way," and the delta NF looked at me like... he just didn't know how to respond. But in a nice way. Haha. (Also, this is probably a terrible example.)

    Or, in an adult art class the other day, I said, in earnest, "I really like the juxtaposition between the heroic expression on that angel you drew and the forlorn expression on the dolphin that he is saving." Lol. I make pointless comments like this a lot... (The piece is way cooler than I am making it sound, here.)

    I sleep with a stuffed animal and think I can feel its emotions and that of some of my other material possessions.

    However, I make a distinction between "childlike" and "childish"- a difference between silliness and genuine immaturity.
    I think b/c I grew up around Fi/Te people, I had this social role as being the inept clown. I knew I was incompetent compared to my peers, and sort of played up the silliness. Still, I felt that what was inside that was a certain seriousness, even if tempered by interests that can seem wacky or pointless- I struggled w/ those who didn't understand that finding wonder in random weird things can feel meaningful, especially since lots of things are actually connected.

    I take things (read: myself) way too seriously internally.

    I think every quadra has a different way of being silly.

    Like if I wanted to be silly, I would try to think what kind of silly is each quadra.... so for the winners in the drug abuse category....

    Alpha - MDMA silly (dancing with molly maybe? Also gently caressing soft things.)
    Beta - Cocaine silly (the man in black says so, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aq344ks1ieg)
    Gamma - Meth silly (just enough nu metal silly)
    Delta - Pot silly (what Jerry said, silly)

    I found this earlier today. I like it and it seems semi relevant:
    "We are clowns because what else can one be in such a stupid world. Because inside everyone is a lawless clown trying to escape. Because nothing undermines authority like holding it up to ridicule. Because since the beginning of time tricksters have embraced life's contradictions, creating coherence through confusion. Because fools are both fearsome and innocent, wise and stupid, entertainers and dissenters, healers and laughing stocks, scapegoats and subversives. Because buffoons always succeed in failing, always say yes, always hope and always feel things deeply. Because a clown can survive everything and get away with anything." - The Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army

    I've always hated cartoons and silly silly humour though. People like Robin Williams and Jim Carrey give me the creeps.

    Jim Carrey creeps me out too. Although I think he's delta, or something.

    I find something like the Clandestine army to be fundamentally too serious, I think they're delta. They take their silliness way too seriously...

    a lot of inoffensive to the point of granola, make sure nobody gets hurt, let's be silly for the sake of being silly and forget the punchline, non-sequitur humor is delta ime.
    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

    I put somewhat. I don't really know what you qualify as silly. I generally don't like things that are straight comedy and I despise slapstick. But in general I'm pretty goofy and like goofy people who give very few fucks and just want to chill out and shoot the shit

    And now I think there's a conspiracy that tries to make me and my shoes plot against each other! I was just over that idea that ties try to strangle me! Thanks! 5 years of therapy ahead, i'll send the bills to L. Ungs in Socionicstown.

    jim carey annoys me more than robin williams regardless of their types. robin williams seems like a kindly uncle who happens to be annoying but you can forgive him cuz he gives good hugs. jim carrey is more like the obnoxious adhd kid who blames you when he farts.

    idk if williams has ever impersonated a cat, lol. sometimes i impersonate a cat. ^^

    I've hated jim carrey ever since my brother showed me dumb and dumber.... (although I loved eternal sunshine of the spotless mind and the truman show).

    Maybe I just dislike comedy movies... I hate the police academy franchise, the american pie franchise and there's something about mary with a passion.

    I like dark comedy...witty comedy... absurd comedy (triangle and robert, anyone?)
