His answer was that " It depends how he is feeling on the day or in which situation he is in", so I get the I/E divergence

I just discovered I have a thing for INTJs. Maybe ENTJs sometimes but fuck my life and my shit taste, those are the only people I'm attracted to.

No. 938213

People oversimplify the I/E divide. The first letter does not only indicate an overall attitude but affects all of your functions, of which every type has some introverted and some extroverted and their order determines dominant and weaker traits. In your example both types have the same functions but their order is different. ISTP is
>Introverted thinking (Ti)
>Extroverted sensing (Se)
>Introverted intuition (Ni)
>Extroverted feeling (Fe)
While ESTP is
>Extroverted sensing (Se)
>Introverted thinking (Ti)
>Extroverted feeling (Fe)
>Introverted intuition (Ni)
To oversimplify ESTP will generally be more impulsive and get restless more easily where ISTP might have similar desires but think on it longer and let their logic override emotions so their life situation is more stable. ESTP is more emotionally expressive where ISTP still has deep feelings but can struggle to properly express themselves

I don't tell people about these things because it's easier to know people by observing their behavior instead of trying to see them through a collection of labels. MBTI is probably kinda useful if done in an honest way but it relies on self report which is sketchy considering most people have poor introspection skills. I've already calculated you in my head, maybe less NaCl next time

I second the suggestion of trying out a foster! The organization you foster from can work with you to find a good fit, and if it ends up being too overwhelming for you it's not a big deal.

No. 941857

I would also suggest a foster only if anon is ready to have a dog with all types of personalities and the organization offers to tell you about the dog's possible behavioural issues and then suggest the best one for your lifestyle if you do end up actually adopting one.
Keep in mind that the dog you're going to get may not be what you envision and that you may have to work to train it. It may bark a lot in the middle of the night, it may have separation anxiety, it may not be so sociable with other animals or people, it may take a while for it to be trained or it may be perfect already.

Even before COVID-19, scientists have never succesfully been able to make a vaccine against other coronaviruses because it mutates so quickly. The Chinese vaccine is traditional inactivated vaccine and is notorious for being useless but completely harmless lol. People went with the mRNA and vector vaccines because theyre much easier and cheaper to produce than traditional ones, even if they haven't been tested long term. Vector vaccines like Astrazenica haven't been used previously except for ebola and vetrinary diseases. (And even then the vaccine is not what stopped the ebola outbreak, public health measures did) Subunit/protein based vaccines like Novavax take a long time to develop because they need to find out which combinations will have the best efficiancy long term. (Hepatitis B vaxx takes 3 doses but gives life long immunity) The Hongkong Flu killed about 4 million people worldwide and was never fully eradicated. The strains of it still exists in every flu season even after that pandemic was considered to be over, that's why old and vulnerable people get their yearly flu shot. At this point it would just make more sense to focus on medicine and vaccinating vulnerable people instead, all the profit-hungry companies taking advantage of the pandemic make me sick.

the vaccine doesn't fully stop 100% of any chance of spreading COVID but it reduces the chance drastically you absolute fucking moron.

The viral load study is relatively recent and media is really shit at relaying information. The conclusion was that vaccinated people CAN have similar load as unvaxxed people, but how infectious it is can affect wildly depending on your exposure, your own immune system etc. You should keep wearing masks and test when necessary even if you're vaccinated. Vaccination still prevents dying or getting severely ill so even if you did catch it it should be enough protection. https://www.ucdavis.edu/health/covid-19/news/viral-loads-similar-between-vaccinated-and-unvaccinated-people

A bit of a necro and autistic sperg soz.

Why is there this idea that the CCP is a machivallian genius state that plans in the long term? Even people like Henry Kissinger push this idea.

I've read up on communist China and I just don't see it. When you read up on modern chinese history you actually notice the CCP is always concerned about the short term and acts like a paranoid schizo. Limiting economic development to SEZ hence turning them into smog infested shitholes and tanking your own demographics doesn't seem like good long term planning to me. If anything the Chinese state is so unsure of itself that it cannot effectively plan for the long term due to the party's need to save face. That's why the highway system in Guangdong was ripped up after only 8 years, because they were so afraid of criticism from the conservative wing they limited the funding. Xi semi-revived Maoism and keeps a small faction of conservative Maoists at the ready in case there's an economic downturn and he has to switch base. This isn't efficient and it doesn't really bode well for the long term.

All the stuff wrong with western economies is found in China a lot worse. They're not going to take over the world or ever challenge the US, they won't ever challenge the US dollar. Their debt problems are worse than the US, their Keynesian monetary policy inflates harder than the US and they're addled with a whole bunch of unproductive zombie corps ran by calcified conservative boomers.

When you read books from the 70s published about the Soviet Union, you see the same misconceptions. "The Soviet commies are fanatic and motivated, their leadership is focused on the long term, the west is lazy and decadent and only focused on TV". When in actuality there was a whole lot of contempt by the Soviet people for their government and the USSR burnt through foreign reserves to prop up their shitty country. It's just a rehash of the same paranoida.

I wish we could go back to the real men don't cry times. Todays men are all crybaby bitches needed to be coddled but still cant deal with other peoples emotion. Why should I let a scrote cry in my arms when he would just yell at me and freak out if I were to cry and offer no consolation. Fuck that. Its just the worst of both worlds. At least when men were stoic they could handle womens emotions by not reacting amd didnt put the burden on her when they were sad. Todays men freak out when a girl cries yet expects her to act like his mommy when he is sad.

Have you found out that if you express anything about a cow inside their thread you get banned or dunked on? Well this is the thread for you!

Do you want to rant about how much you hate a cow without disprupting the thread? Go ahead!
Do you want to sympathize with the cow and talk about how it's not too late to change? Do it sister!
Do you want to talk about your life (blogpost) and compare it to the cow in question? Here's the place?
Express yourself etc. Have fun!

Post your pessimistic, optimistic, negative, controversial, rude, or relatable takes.

(Also this is not a thread to complain about threads, bans, or mods, do that on /meta/. However you can complain about the fanbase of the cow or the people who dislike the cow here.)

I'm beating a dead horse with this, but I've gotten the time to waste while thinking about this along side with other old stuff, so here it is, I guess.

Mr. Enter is a person I'm very conflicted with. I believe he can say and create good stuff is he tries to, but at the same time I understand why many people used to and still consider him a cow. Everytime I see people making fun of him, I think that people are being too harsh on him and that he doesn't deserve to be treated like that, but then I watch one of his videos and then I began to remember why people dislike him so much. Similar thing with Growing Around; when I see all of the youtubers making fun of his proyect, I began to feel that they are being pretty cruel with someone's passion proyect, but then I read the actual scrips, look at the marketing or even the way Enter keeps talking about other people's works and then I don't know anymore if it's actual cruelness or just karma.

As much as I don't like Daftpina, I think that Enter should take his advice and just work on something other than growing around, or just start with something more simple than a 20 minutes episode show. Honestly, my biggest issue with Growing around is that it feels more like if was created for other animation critics on Youtube instead of children; like, Enter is trying so hard to pressent it as some form of uber-subversive piece that it might feel very boring and tryhard for an actual kid; and it seems like if he knows it because most of the time he tries to shoehorne stuff like ponies and rainbows into his works thinking that it would make it more appealing to a kid, but it just makes the presentation feel corny and out of touch.

I also want to create my own proyect one day, and I'd like to go full indie with it, but seen Enter's situation with GA, I've decided to do a better planning with my own stuff before jumping into the water.

I feel like such an idiot. I hooked up with an old friend from high school who told me right before we were going for it, he had herpes. I decide he was honest, I understand with protection it is less risky and he had no breakout, and did it. We talked about how we aren't compatible the next day but still occasionally hang out as friends but awkwardly. Then he shows at my birthday and leaves with another girl. All of this happened over a couple months. Never caught anything from him. Don't know why I even care about this, but it is irritating I took this risk for this self absorbed, not even cute, band guy and now I feel even more idiotic.

probatio diabolica refers to a situation where proving something is very difficult or problematic, or impossible.
eg - you are claiming to be the legitimate owner of someone else's property.
