    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    Other stuff:

    Arrested Development
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfHYKHes3xc

    and of course South Park
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdhL6mmsRb0

    They both have constant battling for power between people trying to realize their visions... And even though both of the shows are pretty aristocratic in outlook I think AD more often jokes about the characters failings to reach the elite whereas SP takes more of an underdog perspective. BTW, do you guys think that having very swift changes in power dynamics for comical effect is uniquely beta or just ordinary comedy..?

    lol, that's expected. We'll hardly be touched by the same things. But since Beta tends to enjoy being swept away by the nostalgia of it all, I wanna see what some other Betans have connected with over the years.
    I think I’ve always took more of a liking to a mixture of humor from different Quadra’s, that way its more chaotic and random

    I just posted random old crap that I liked. There's no such thing as "Beta humor."

    Good list, Medley. Minus The Stooges. I believe one of my first posts ever was a tirade on those negligent sons of bitches.

    Chaplin's little tramp films.

    Leave it to Beaver. (Growing up, I always loved to see when wally would be taking a girl out dancing and whatnot...i couldn't wait until someone asked me. I turned 16 and no one wanted to dance except at high school things, but those were lame. that wasn't the right music to dance to!)

    Interesting, how do you differentiate humor between the quadras? Goes along with what Kopernikus was asking, are power plays uniquely beta...

    I don't find my choices to be beta in context. I wasn't really expecting the selections to reflect beta, it was more about sharing in our nostalgia. Three stooges, remind me of my dad, who isn't beta. Three's company remind me of this cousin who used to visit from mexico and we'd sit and watch the show together. I think he is an alpha. Golden girls I loved because it was older women talking about and behaving in a manner that isn't expected.

    I can't really pin-point which of the selections, mentioned so far, are or aren't beta. Did you get a beta vibe from any of them?
    Sorry maizemedley... its not that I don’t find those clips funny, I just wasn’t familiar with a lot of that stuff growing up... I guess that was just my plain ignorance (plus I was working on an assignment at the time and didn’t have time to watch, but I’m clicking now )

    I may post some stuff later <3

    Milk Chan

    Me my sister and some friends stayed up all night a few days ago, and this weird show came on cartoon network. It was the most unusual show (Japanese humor. eheh). You know... one of those shows you’d probably only enjoy if you were high or something.

    Anyway, everyone said the main character Milk Chan reminded them of me... haha wtf... maybe we’re the same Socionics type

    Here is another good Benny Hill:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBk_PhdgBNs
    "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
    --Theodore Roosevelt

    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
    -- Mark Twain

    "Man who stand on hill with mouth open will wait long time for roast duck to drop in."
    -- Confucius

    Suspicion [Hitchcock] -- focuses on INFp/ESTp duality
    Rebecca [Hitchcock]-- INFp/ISTj activity partners
    Sunset Boulevard -- ENFj drama
    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty -- stereotypical INFp

    I always associate musicals with ENFjs.

    However, even the revolution is totally driven by Alpha concepts: Durden is promoting, and trying to impliment, a form of primitivism, which is a totally Alpha concept. Also, the movie is about forming new social standards, as opposed to protecting them. We should also consider that the movie is all about pointing out the bad parts of Beta. And of course, Ed Norton's character is clearly ILE, as is he.

    It could go either way. I'd say it's more about the interactions between Alpha than either one of them specifically.


    Beta movies..hmmm...Dead Poet's Society, Miracle, Garden State, Gangs of New York, any movie about high-school, football, or both

    What about Bleach?

    The animated series of the popular japanese comic created by Kubo Tite.
    She is wise
    beyond words
    beautiful within
    her soul
    brighter than
    the sun
    lovelier than
    love
    dreams larger
    than life
    and does not
    understand the
    meaning of no.
    Because everything
    through her, and in her, is
    "Yes, it will be done."
