I was looking for that post. The meatslab dress is classic.

Seriously, it just looks like a sea of evil seeping out into the next room.

AND this is why Necromancy is a bad thing.


Didn't notice that at all!

Feel free to spam me with cat macros.  :lol:

I seriously wonder about the default face templates. I mean, they were intentionally made to be ugly for comedic value, right?

Post count should not govern what you are and are not allowed to say.


Bite me, MizzKitty. You don't waltz into a forum and bitch out longstanding members. If the person wasn't happy with the response, he or she should have ignored it until he/she knows people better around here.


Since you seem to place so much importance on post count and seniority, then let me be the first to say don't bring this elitist fucktardism here. People have always been allowed to register and say whatever they have to say, and as long as it's not "i can haz pegy hare???" or something equally inane, it's never counted against them. We're willing to engage in civilized discourse with paysite owners seeking to understand our position and individuals on the fence between the two sides, so a little sarcasm here and there from new blood isn't even remotely significant.

Now, excellent work making yourself look like an ass even though you've certainly been here long enough to know better.

That's actually quite interesting.

The truth is, according to the polls, INTJs only polled as 20%, rather than the "majority" as Lorelei stated, but it's certainly and visibly a dominantly overrepresented faction.

That seems slightly more realistic. I automatically assumed she meant 51% or more, which was just laughable, all things considered. Thanks for clearing that up.


No, no, Lorelei just posted hastily and didn't catch the wrong word choice.

What I meant was that the temperament type with the largest number of respondents claiming it was their MB type was INTJ which had approximately twice the votes when compared the second-most popular choice.

Or: INTJ had most votes, yo. Second place had far fewer votes than INTJ. I/T types overall seem to be predominant. For an MB type that is supposedly rare, more people claim to be this type than any other type (ant other individual type, not all 15 other types combined) by a roughly 2:1 margin.


Gotcha.

And I love how there are 3-4 different conversations taking place in this thread right now.

Now, MATY strikes me as having very few actual INTJs, which is one of the reasons why I found your initial comment hilarious (and because, frankly, it's a bit odd to casually mention in a thread completely unrelated to MB tests). I'm sure you know how common it is for people mis-attribute characteristics they perceive as positive to themselves that they don't actually possess. Bearing the INTJ label has become a mark of e-prestige and "intelligence," much the same as declaring one has Asperger's Syndrome; considering the degree of social pressure on MATY to at least seem more intelligent than the general populace, I call bullshit on a lot of the results.

I've gotten the opinion there are a lot of posers also, but it's also worth noting that the ones who stir the shit are the ones who aren't. The recent drama, for instance, apparently broke down nearly entirely along the T/F lines. Someone commented how sanity seemed to instantly return the moment those people had been run off, and that this was disturbing.

That's actually quite interesting.

Also, stay out of Retardo Land, the Fs hang out there. If you're seeing the issue as being primarily a visibly Retardo Land issue, this is because Retardo Land is the MATY ghetto where we boot all the Fs.

It was a combination of Retardo Land being what it is and the fact that the drama centered around certain posters. I'd feel differently if the in-fighting   involved some fairly amusing personal insults, but catmacros and the harping over a single typo in someone's post gets old a bit fast.

That was... well, something.

Jan seems like a paranoid schizophrenic that's off her meds. True, we don't know what she's like IRL, but the online persona is... interesting.

Oh lord, this is still going. Someone please summarize from the point the cops told her to get off the internet, since going through 60 missed pages is a bit much.

I didn't quote the entire message because I had so many sub-quotes my eyes were crossing trying to sort out the tags.

Anyway...

That was my first Sims 2 forum. actually, right before I found an INTJ-encouraging new home at MATY.


I'm normally very good at picking up on sarcasm on the intarwebs, but you lost me on this one. I'd like to know if this was really meant to be tongue-in-cheek before I break down into hysterical laughter.


I'm not sure how you're interpreting my comment, so I can't say if you're on the mark or not! :lol:


I'm fairly well-versed in Myers-Briggs/Jung types because I post on a fuckton of forums study abnormal psychology. However, I'm extremely skeptical of the system because of the high potential for error. To put it simply: people lie.

Now, MATY strikes me as having very few actual INTJs, which is one of the reasons why I found your initial comment hilarious (and because, frankly, it's a bit odd to casually mention in a thread completely unrelated to MB tests). I'm sure you know how common it is for people mis-attribute characteristics they perceive as positive to themselves that they don't actually possess. Bearing the INTJ label has become a mark of e-prestige and "intelligence," much the same as declaring one has Asperger's Syndrome; considering the degree of social pressure on MATY to at least seem more intelligent than the general populace, I call bullshit on a lot of the results.

Also, I've found the Myers-Briggs test to be a bit fickle in my case. I mainly score as either INTJ or INTP depending on my general level of contrariness at the time, and one version gave me ENFP. Which is... not my personality at all.

If you apply these temperaments to MATY, which is strongly INTJ, as is Pescado, you get a forum that doesn't seek out members, is not particularly bothered about welcoming new people, dismissive of illiteracy and 12ness and "hurt feelings" and drama, enjoys thoughtful threads and debates, focuses on clarity of expression (semantics) and grammar, and is bored easily. If you're an INTJ, the lack of fluffy / blinky emoties and e-hugs and long discussions about soppy feeling-based crud and leetspeak is like manna from heaven.


Really? There seems to be quite a bit of that these days. One of the reasons I don't post there is because of the adolescent sniping that's liable to break out in any thread, regardless of the subject matter; most of which seems to derive from conflicts that occurred quite some time ago and the participants are still butthurt.

Though, of course, this mainly applies to Retardoland. I very much appreciate the rest of the forum because I don't have to wade through pages and pages of fluffbunny nonsense for one small piece of information. And, well, I need my hacks.

As far as Pescado's concerned, he's definitely a combination of meeting the general criteria for the INTJ result and a master troll.

Also, was this the forum where everyone has massive avatars and Peggy-style blinky shit all over the place? If so, I liked the concept for a lot of the downloads, but I never got anything because:

a)I couldn't find it, or
b)It'd time out when I tried to download it.

And $4000 a year in hosting/server costs is either worthy of a "you're doing it wrong" macro, or a blatant lie.

It's been so long since anyone referenced that, I forgot who started it.

Okay, am I the only one thinking that "picture" of Cardrew looks like it's failing to be ganguro?

I thought the same thing. Hair's not bleached enough, though.

I am tempted to ban everyone on insim who is associated with this bullshit smear campaign. I dunno, I think as long as we entertain these people and allow them to run ammock in the community spewing their hatred the more they will keep it up.


If they're spamming the shit out of the forums like a couple 'tards on MTS2 tried to (I haven't been around Insim for a while, so I don't know) you're probably better off doing just that. This is just tiresome now.

It looks like Inge to me as well. Frankly, I'm not surprised.

I do not hold it for improbable that the FBI forms a special department for the SIMS . In this special case Scully and Mulder will probably determine.


Everyone in the library is giving me dirty looks now. Thanks for this.  :lol:
