    Default The Overly Sentimental Art Thread

    I consider myself to be a sentimental person, I cry listening to some music, sometimes I tear up on the greeting card aisle, I have trouble parting with clothes, etc that loved ones have given me.

    So I think it is interesting that I have a violent dislike of certain art that I consider overly sentimental, even though I might agree with the sentiment being depicted: maternal love, gentle behavior, beauty of nature, etc.

    Is this a quadra-related issue? Betas, do you have the same reaction to this kind of art?

    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.
    Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation

    PS Why are my pics so small? Help @Park
    @Park Thanks for helping me adjust them. Now they are probably too big, but I like it better.

    Lol, it doesn't even register for me as sentimental. It's like I look at it, and just want to look at something else. It's like furniture.

    What kind of art/aesthetic do usually like instead?

    Ok, I will go back and add contrasting art that I do like.

    ("oooh, let this bunch of vague impressions about nature and far-away emotions blur my heart")

    >>> I usually associate this kind of images with Si, especially if the object of art is nature ..it's as if sensation were filtered through some "inner lense"; it's not raw.

    @Iris: I don't have the authorization to edit your posts, so you'll have to do it by yourself.

    1) If you're getting your pics online, just paste their links inside [IMG][/IMG] tags or use the "From URL" option inside the image uploader, instead of uploading them from your computer/tablet/smartphone as attachments.

    2) If you're pulling them from your computer, first upload them to a hotlinking website (e.g. imgur or flickr) and then post the direct links here. Make sure you uncheck the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" checkbox if you're using the image uploader.

    PM me if you need additional assistance.

    I like both of your dislikes! Especially the dude on the mountain top. Your likes are too spare feeling...

    I still think there are mistypes abound. Hrrm. :C I don't know how to fix this. The people that hate myself are not I. The people that like myself are like myself. Where is an ESTp when you need one. He'd sort this mess out and assert for me. :S

    Now, know this. The subtitle for the IEI is the romanticist. Beethoven was IEI. Overpowering feelings are beta. ESTp is Teddy! Rough riders and all that, the thirst for adventure. We enjoy having our feelings pushed around, and such. We do not like having our feelings demeaned. Such would lead to depression in a beta. Intense depression. Facts? None, but Ni doesn't call for facts, does it?
