Member Questionnaire 1 (RGB)What is beauty? What is love?
I cannot be certain of objective beauty of love, and I think there is no such thing. What are your most important values?
Different forms of expression have different expressions of beauty. In entertainment, I think that the more strange, fantastic, shiny and colorful the setting and characters are, the more beautiful, or to be more specific, I am attracted to entertainment of this nature. Best examples include the gaming franchises Kirby, EarthBound, Dragon Quest and The Stanley Parable. Another great example is Andrew Hussie's webcomic, Homestuck. Homestuck, EarthBound and Dragon Quest are very high-stakes, which is also beautiful to me.
Love is a feeling of affection with vaguely understood intensity.
In order of value descending: Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
I am a radical skeptic. I believe I cannot check what the objective criteria for anything is, and that includes truth and falsehood, assuming objective criteria even exists outside of my imagination. I trust this because I have no way to even try to check what the objective criteria for anything is. I also trust that others are subject to the same epistemological boundaries.Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
Within prudence.What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests? Why?
I have had long conversations regarding philosophical topics. I am interested in argumentation, gaming, social justice and personality. Interest is not a matter of justification. And there are so many potential influences which could explain why I like these things that it would not be worth all the thought, given the length of this test.Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
I could talk about health and medicine, but I would have little to no background. I am focused on improving my facial attractiveness, though there is little need to. Beyond that, I don't really care.What do you think of daily chores?
-Books or films you liked? Recently read/watched or otherwise. Examples welcome.
-What has made you cry? What has made you smile? Why?
Relevant to the previous question, Disney's Snow White And the Seven Dwarves made me cry five times and then once again after the movie. It made me cry because Snow White was so peaceful, sweet and happy. I was once like that, so I know what it's like and I'll likely never feel that way again. Because I must take a responsibility (which I speak of later in this questionnaire) which no one else will because extremely few else see this as a problem. I'm not saying there's something wrong with them for not seeing it as a problem, I'm saying they likely haven't thought about it and realized how effed up it is, and they would if something prompted them to think freely about it. And acknowledging this problem is severely discouraging, especially considering my efforts will likely not be publicly recognized in my lifetime.Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
I smile when people behave diplomatically during argumentation.
Wherever there is correction and there is not ridicule, condemnation, condescension, or any other rhetorically Machiavellian behavior which stifles sincerity.What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
People say I should be less philosophical. But nothing is beyond perspective, and to me, nothing is above logical thought. What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
I don't like that my crisis causes me so much agony. I could have a far more optimistic or aloof perspective and still acknowledge and fix the problems at hand.
People say I am very smart. But I am only curious and reflective. It's only a matter of having a concerned attitude. In what areas of your life would you like help?
I like that I am capable of and open to seeing my mistakes and amending them instead of arrogantly ignoring them or dismissing any relevant and/or fair objections.
I need resources to get people's attention.Ever feel stuck in a rut? If yes, describe the causes and your reaction to it.
-What qualities do you most like and dislike in other people? What types do you get along with?
I don't like people who ignore objections regarding their logical and ethical consistency. Addressing it is good, even if you address it in a flawed manner, because at least you'd show some concern. How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
I get along very well with emotional people. I provide them with open-minded and polite understanding of their sensitivities, and still provide them with logical solutions to their problems.
"How do you feel about romance/sex?" If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
I gave up. I will not put in any effort until opportunity arises, and when I fail, as expected, I will go back to being alone. It is really confusing why people don't like me. I have a very attractive face. Must I be muscular? Is my sophistication boring? I am humorously quirky when the context is appropriate; I am not serious all the time.
What qualities do you want in a partner?
An attractive face. Pretty much everything else is optional, but I have a few fetishes, such as a yandere personality, and a preference for girly fashion (the color pink, big bows, button-eyed dolls, sweet candy, etc.).
Are they behaving prudently? That's all that matters. It encompasses everything that matters. Only do what is prudent. Because I want them to be intrinsically motivated to be prudent, I would not try to change them through punishment and reward: this provides extrinsic motivation. Then what will happen when I'm not there for them? Instead, I must teach them through diplomatic reasoning, and I must never once lose my patience. I would not assault an adult for being imprudent, and I would not assault a child for being imprudent.A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?
Internal reaction: Doesn't that contradict with premise x? I should check if they agree with premise x. Describe your relationship to society. How do you see people as a whole? What do you consider a prevalent social problem? Name one.
Outward reaction: Do you agree with premise x? Premise x contradicts what you just said. If you disagree with premise x, I am prepared to explain why I think we should agree with premise x.
Everyone wants to teach the world something. Or, a lot of people do, at least. Because of this, people need to know how to be diplomatic so that we can learn each other's wisdom. Unfortunately, people are rhetorically cruel to each other. Before I can teach people my wisdom, I must be prepared to hear their wisdom as well, and I must teach them to learn as I have. People as a whole? Generally or universally? I generally do not make universal statements about humans, so I will make a general statement about people. People are not naturally reasonable. People are not naturally unreasonable, either. But people are generally not consciously Machiavellian, and generally do respond better to diplomacy, and hopefully, people will respect my diplomatic behavior in the face of ridicule.How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?
Children are socially conditioned to not question what adults tell them, are constantly being told and treated as though their opinions don't matter, and then are blamed for behaving unintelligently, and adults are abandoned by society if they are not useful. That's awful. There is discrimination on both parts, and it is extremely destructive and unfair. This is the crisis for which I will dedicate my whole life to solving, and I will likely not see results before my death.
My friends are people who will admit their mistakes to me and who I can trust not to ridicule me when I make mistakes. When we're being casual, I am very humorous and intentionally weird, sometimes to a scary or impressive degree. My interest in philosophy and logic amplifies this sometimes. When we're being serious, I am very diplomatic, logical, eloquent and organized in my arguments. How do you behave around strangers?
I try to talk about how insincere people are around strangers and how narrow their perspective must be, given how the stranger their afraid of is also likely afraid of them.
