i think they are very charismatic

2032. “lets playing” is a major in several reputable universities across the country. markiplier is the head of the lets playing department at Yale. a student walks into his office. “sir,” she says, “a boy in my intro to battletoads class was making antisemitic comments towards me.” 

“and you’re telling on him?” he questions in his way too charismatic voice. 

“um,” she says, “yes?” 

“well” he says. he positions a camera light onto his face and presses record on his very expensive camera. “i really just think you’re showing a lack of respect by trying to bring down this man who did nothing but–”

meanwhile, in an apartment in SoHo, the beat letsplayer movement is in full swing. cassandra, a cigarette dangling from her lips, sighs. “my mom still thinks i’m insane for leaving NYU”

“she’s insane,” says donovan, “the letsplayer major there is total corporate bullfuckery. they only care about the numbers, man, and defending each other’s near impossible to escape racist jokes (why is that so prevalent wtf), not doing new and interesting things with video games.”

“whatever,” she says, “once my series where i play fallout new vegas while suspended 30 feet in the air on a trapeze drops, then i’ll break it into the mainstream. then she’ll see.”

they make love, both secretly pretending the other is nick robinson

okay @ all of france i really really REALLY need you to go vote in the second round, PLEASE.

if you don’t want le pen to win, vote for macron. it’s that easy.

no “she’ll never win anyway”. that’s how brexit happened.  

no “but he’s not great either”, that’s how trump got elected.

no “I’m abstaining because i want to send a message”, that’s just plain stupid and i hope i don’t have to explain why oh my god. PLEASE.

If Le Pen wins, the EU is finished. Yes I’m german and I’m openly admitting that without France, we can’t do it. 
If she manages to win the election she’ll also be able to get France to leave the EU, and that will be a desaster for everyone involved.
Look up how absolutely fantastic the Brexit negotiations are going if you’re still on the fence about that.

It’s a very similar situation to the one the US was in last year.
“ugh a boring politician they’re not exciting and has ties to the big banks and voting for them won’t change anything god i hate the system”
versus one 
oh look a charismatic fascist who will probably literally kill us all and throw the country, if not the continent, into utter chaos” candidate.

please think twice before you say it’s a choice between two evils. it’s not pest oder cholera, at the very worst it’s a stubbed toe versus lung cancer, and the lung cancer’s best chances lie in people not voting at all.

honestly I am so confused by interpretations of Enjolras as some Charismatic Revolutionary Controller of Minds when the very first interaction  we see him have is Courfeyrac yanking his chain about Rousseau 

like, he’s a likeable guy, clearly! His friends love him! He gives one heck of a speech! But there is a notable lack of people holding him in Awe or even Doing What He Says in 90 percent of his not-immediate-combat interactions. 

MBTI stereotypes vs. How I see them irl

ENFP stereotype: crazy, always yelling, always crying, loud, obsessed with rainbows and unicorns for some reason.

ENFPs irl: being an ENFP myself I’ll say that we are so much more mellow than you’d expect. Some of us are actually kind of quiet and can get confused as introverts. We are excitable people, without a doubt, but we’re picky about who we want to be excitable around.

INFP stereotype: dark, brooding, always sad, poetic, cries a lot, takes everything personally, probably emo

INFPs irl: I won’t deny that INFPs definitely can be like this, but they’re also surprisingly playful & don’t show their emotions as much as you’d expect. Every INFP I’ve met is super witty and they always have the most perfect comedic timing! Seriously, y'all could be comedians. They can sometimes be smartasses and seem like INTPs, even ENTPs on the surface.

ISFP stereotype: hipster, emo, crybaby, manic pixie dream girl, tortured artist

ISFP irl: I won’t deny that the stereotype is pretty accurate. But like INFPs, they don’t show their emotions as often as you’d think. They actually come off as quite aloof and unemotional on the surface. Also; even though they’re sensors, they are very much like intuitives! I dated an ISFP and we used to have the most interesting conversations.

ESFP stereotype: party animal, attention whore, loud, annoying

ESFPs irl: Like the ENFPs, they’re surprisingly laid back. And some can be confused as introverts; they’re very similar to their ISFP “cousins”. Although ESFPs are party animals without a doubt, they have a surprisingly mellow vibe. They’re also a LOT smarter than you’d think.

ENTP stereotype: asshole, always debating, just dicks in general

ENTPs irl: I have a lovely ENTP teacher and my dad is an ENTP as well. Honestly, I think ENTPs are one of the thinking types that can often be confused to be feelers. They’re often VERY friendly and charismatic— sometimes even more so than ENFPs— and you’ll find that they’re surprisingly very emotional when you get to know them. Remember, kids: thinkers have feelings too, they just have a harder time grasping them than feeling types.

ESTJ/ENTJ stereotype: mean, bossy, stoic

EXTJs irl: Both of these types are stereotyped to be very mean & bossy people. They sometimes can come across like that, but often times when they’re being bossy, they’re only trying to help you. A lot of people misinterpret their actions. Yes, some EXTJs abuse their power, but a lot of them are just looking out for people and making sure they do the right thing. They’re also very fun & social if you become friends with them! They’re so much nicer than you’d expect. 

ISTJ stereotype: boring, hates people, stoic

ISTJs irl: They aren’t boring, just very mellow. Every ISTJ I’ve met has a very calm tone of voice. Like EXTJs, they can come off as bossy, but often times they’re only trying to help you. They definitely have a fun, charismatic side to them too.

INTJ stereotype: evil, hates people, antisocial

INTJs irl: Yeah, a lot of INTJs are like this. But they can be really good friends; they can just be quite picky about who they want to spend time with, because they’re often very very introverted. When you do get “chosen” by an INTJ, they’re actually super fun to talk to and be around. They have a soft, sweet side too that they’ll reveal to you if you get close enough. Like ISTJs, they’re often super mellow people.

ISFJ stereotype: pure, soft, will bake you cookies, very emotional

ISFJs irl: Alright. I’ll admit that the ISFJ stereotype is pretty spot on. But they’re also more smart & independent than you’d expect. They’re very caring about others, but will still go out and get what they want no matter what the cost; a confident ISFJ won’t be afraid to cut you out of the picture if you’re hindering their progress! They also give REALLY good advice. That’s typical of an XXFJ type though, tbh.

INFJ stereotype: extremely introverted. dark and brooding. probably psychic.

INFJs irl: I have an INFJ best friend and let me tell you, these types really do come off as extroverted! They can be very charismatic and chatty and are so much less mysterious/cryptic than you’d expect. They’re so fun to be around!! I’ll agree that they’re probably psychic though tbh. A lot of INFJs I’ve met have had weird spiritual experiences & predicted things that I never could have thought of before. They can also be huge party animals if you bring out their wild side!

ENFJ stereotype: typical “hero”, preachy, emotional, manipulative

ENFJs irl: I honestly don’t disagree with this stereotype. ENFJs can be manipulative, but they don’t always have malicious intent. They’re a little similar to EXTJs at times; they seem controlling, but often times they’re just trying to help. ENFJs sometimes get a bad rep, but I think they are super impessive and smart people. And yes, it’s true; they most likely know you better than you know yourself.

ESFJ stereotype: typical basic bitch, loud, charismatic, over emotional

ESFJs irl: I’d say the stereotype is true, but exaggerated. Some ESFJs can be a bit obnoxious, I’ll admit, but they’re usually super wonderful to be around. Their presence is often very fun & refreshing. They may seem smothering at times, but just know that deep in their heart it’s because they want to keep people happy. Every ESFJ I’ve met does their very best to put a smile on everyone’s face; they’re always joking around, giving out compliments, and giving out hugs. They often have good intentions with everything they do and you can just /tell/.

ESTP stereotype: daredevil, asshole, party animal, impulsive

ESTPs irl: They definitely have a tendency to be all of the above. But they’re also super friendly & charismatic, and very caring deep down. They’re also often really really smart, but don’t often show it unless you get them talking about a subject they’re invested in. When they’re not out partying and going wild, they are actually super chill people.

ISTP/INTP stereotype: assholes, nerdy, hates people, critical

IXTPs irl: Actually sweethearts. They often aren’t too great at expressing emotion, but they’re just so nice, they can even sometimes appear nicer than the IXFPs. They care so much for people without even realizing it. I dated an ISTP and he used to do the sweetest romantic gestures ever!! They come off as aloof, cold, and often robotic; but you still get a general sense that they care for the people around them, and they often truly do deep down.

I think one of the main criticisms of astrology, that we cannot simply expect people to fall within twelve categories, is interesting. Because when we think about it, no ones asking anyone to. So you may be, for example, a Sagittarius, and express outwardly as adventurous and charismatic, but then the picture becomes more complex, with a Pisces Moon perhaps, a sensitive and emapthic subconscious, and then they may have a Scorpio Venus, and show their affection to others in a very full on and intense way, somewhat at odds with their light disposition in everyday matters. They may have a tenth house stellium and feel beckoned to develop into someone that will impact society at large. It creates a full, complex picture. It doesn’t reduce people into cookie cutter characters.

¡Hola a todos! Hello everyone!

(I didn’t post a video last week! Sorry!!!)
But I’m sharing with you some Spanish speaking youtubers, so you can start practicing your listening skills! :D

I chose these youtubers because, aside from being entertaining, they don’t say a lot of bad words and swearwords as other youtubers, which I personally don’t find attractive or funny; and I don’t think it works for your Spanish learning. Of course you’ll hear a lot of swearwords in Spanish speaking countries, and most of these youtubers use them, but in my opinion, in a more moderate way (and also because if they swear a lot they don’t get money).

HolaSoyGerman. [Chile; +31,700,000 subscribers] With just 137 videos, he’s the most watched Spanish speaking youtuber. He’s funny and his videos are very simple, and he’s very charismatic. Now he’s not very active in this channel, but he has another one where he plays videogames, here it is: JuegaGerman
Warning! He speaks really fast, even for native Spanish speakers. So, don’t get discouraged if you don’t understand at first, you will eventually (I believe in you!)

elrubiusOMG [España; +24,400,000 subscribers] He’s the most popular gamer in the Spanish speaking community. His channel is basically about gameplays, but he also makes some other videos where he trolls people, plays pranks, or travels. 

Yuya [México; +18,300,000 subscribers] She’s the most popular youtuber from México. She makes DIY’s, make up tutorials, dessert recipes and so on. She has a very peculiar voice, and a very cute way of speaking.

enchufetv [Ecuador; +14,100,000 subscribers] This is a group of people that make short videos. They’re very creative and funny. They make parodies about real life and modern times situations.

Luisito Comunica [México; +5,800,000 subscribers] He’s always traveling, trying new things and asking people for their opinion on several topics. His videos are very interesting and entertaining. 

YellowMellowMG [España; +1,500,000 subscribers] She’s very outgoing, interesting and funny. Her channel is mostly about personal opinions and experiences. 

Gonzok [México; +630,000 subscribers] He’s a less popular youtuber, but in my opinion he makes really good videos, very well edited and he’s very funny. He makes the typical “Kinds of people” videos. He says that the key to be happy in life is to subscribe to his channel, maybe you can try it! :)

superholly [USA; +450,000 subscribers] She’s from the United States but has lived in México for a long time. She’s fluent in Spanish, she could be Mexican, I thought she was Mexican.
She makes each one of her videos in English and Spanish, so maybe you can first watch her video in Spanish and then watch the video in English and see how much you understood.

CuriosaMente [México; +380,000 subscribers] These are educational animated videos that talk about science, history and culture. These videos are interesting and the narrator speaks very clear.

Inna Moll [Chile; +320,000 subscribers] Within her first month uploading videos in Youtube she reached 100,000 subscribers! it seems that everybody is loving her. She’s a model from Chile, and her channel is basically about her trips and personal life.

Do you have any favorite Spanish speaking youtuber? Share it with us! :)

Dream Daddy High School/College AU

WRITERS NOTE: I can’t actually write and it’s 3 AM, so most of the ideas are fairly vague and are not very elaborate. Honestly, I can’t really remember any smaller details about each of the dad’s. 

Please tell me if something is getting to OC and feel free to send me any ideas and I might make a master post if this gains any interest (which I doubt, I just need to get this written down before I forget)

Craig Cahn - a literal human trash bag (filled with trash, he is not trash), surprisingly okay-ish grades, fantastic procrastinator, lethargic and indecisive AF, really good at beer pong, eats in class, great actor, gets in trouble for using slang in his essays and being late for class every day

Hugo Vega - on the wrestling team, an Advanced Placement student, fond of wine (regardless of his age), surprisingly strong, grew out of his childhood lactose intolerance (I did, it was really nice), works at a library or bookstore but ends up hiding in the back to read (I did this), gets in trouble for calling out the staff and students when they get facts wrong

Damien Bloodmarch - (I don’t know when he transitioned, but I’ll use he/him) a classy goth, but he’s still a poor student (I can relate to this on a personal level), closeted anime fan, is/was a pescetarian in HS before becoming a full fledged vegetarian, has really nice cursive (probably uses a fountain pen), is tired of people calling his cloak a cape, gets in trouble for telling people off who call him Emo (also me)

Mat Sella - a music/band student (obviously), probs a stoner, but he like, doesn’t suck? (you know the type, I hope), barista at the local coffee shop but it’s not local because he doesn’t want to see his classmates, hates people touching his instruments (I feel you), his headphones/earbuds are practically grafted to him, gets in trouble for smuggling cats into the dorms/classes and for listing to music, singing, or humming in class

Brian Harding - an amazing cook, a shop kid, great for camping trips, super competitive (obviously), great at anything involving cards (ex. poker, and go fish), part of the gardening club, a handy man, gets in trouble for unknowingly provoking other kids and staff

Robert Small - the delinquent, is street smart, junior con man, all his papers are about cryptids, fond of whiskey (regardless of his age), will protect his leather jacket with his life, will deny that he wears eyeliner (based off of angsty teen Dan Avidan from Game Grumps, his voice actor), the best liar, gets in trouble for his jokes,  bringing knives to school and getting into fights when people call him short/small (I HC that he’s the shortest dad, I think I saw it somewhere)

Joseph Christiansen- the President of the Bible study club every Thursday, is/was a Scout, the top student in Baking 101, charismatic AF, very honest, though a little overbearing, rides his skateboard to school/class, brings baked goods to school to give out, gets in trouble for causing drama because he critiqued their outfit or he was too blunt

Honestly the real Voltron dream team is Lance and Corran.

I mean think about it:
- they’re both charismatic
- both blue
- Homesick but they don’t let that stop them
- they are both the funny guys
- and not just funny but both Lance and Corran are what keeps the team light
- they can be very responsible when they have to be
- please I just want more attention on these guys
- I mean an episode where they’re partnered up is literally just screaming and laughter and learning
- and running. Definitely running away from some problem
- but it’s funny

In conclusion let me have a Lance and Corran team up episode

Green Juice

anonymous asked:

hello! can i get some fluffy headcanons or a scenario (whichever is easiest for you) for the phantom thieves+akechi? like all of them doing stuff together/bonding and being happy if that makes any sense (i'm exhausted.) thank you and i love your blog!!

Awww yessss I live for the fluff!! Thank you so much for loving my blog! ^^ I put them all under one big category, and I also included stuff they’d do with certain individuals! Please enjoy!

Edit: If I forget a gif one more time I’m gonna fight myself. LMAO

The Phantom Thieves:

  • They all have such amazing relationships with each other, thus enabling them to be completely honest about anything, whether it’s internalized emotions or past struggles.
  • When they’re all congregated, silence is a foreign concept. Even when there is a quiet moment, it’s very brief.
  • The group frequently ventures into the city, and the girls will hold each other’s hands. The boys just enviously watch them. just hold hands with each other
  • Although, Ryuji occasionally hangs his arms around Yusuke and Akira. He’ll feel guilty for leaving Akechi out, but it’s too awkward to sling an arm around him, so Ryuji simply opts for patting his shoulder. cue akira teasing them
  • Sleepovers are in rotation between the Thieves; they take place at a different residence every time, and they also occur whenever a teammate’s feeling dejected or depressed.
  • Futaba has a plethora of movies and shows that the group marathons during sleepovers; Makoto orders takeout or pizza.
  • During scary movies, they all hug each other or pull blankets over their heads. except haru because she doesn’t play around
  • Akira flusters everyone with his teasing / flirting, and since Akechi’s the only one that’s able to stand his ground the two duel it out while everyone else ignores them.
  • Akira also knows that Akechi has a certain weakness for dark humor, so he’ll tell jokes at the most inopportune times just to witness Akechi’s face twitch from trying to quell his laughter.
  • Akira always explores around the city to uncover the most entertaining hangouts; his personal favorite is the skating rink despite always injuring himself from wiping out.
  • During the holidays, the group loves going bowling. Futaba is the most inept at bowling; she has to place the ball on the floor and roll it down the lane.
  • Makoto’s the most talented at bowling, although Ann is a close second. The boys are utterly horrendous and one of them managed to get a gutter ball with the barriers up. yes it’s possible i’ve done it rip
  • Yusuke practically begs them to play paintball every weekend; Makoto was the one that introduced him to it since she went with Ryuji once, and Yusuke has been hooked ever since. The group agreed on going at least once a month.
  • Ryuji’s trained with everyone at one point, even Akechi. They went rock climbing once, and Ryuji discovered that he was fairly adept at it, almost as skilled as Akechi.
  • Futaba taught Haru how to use a yo-yo and do cool tricks. She’s also the one that suggested playing laser tag one afternoon, and everyone ended up loving it. especially makoto
  • Ann is the fashion adviser of the group, so if anyone needs a trusted opinion on apparel, she’s the one to talk to.
  • Akechi’s rather well-versed with fashion as well, so Ann requests him to accompany her while she goes shopping. 
  • Modeling agencies tend to make attempts at recruiting them, so they have to constantly look out for each other.
  • Sometimes Yusuke will join Ann and Akechi on their shopping trips, and that attracts even more modeling companies. 
  • tbh all the thieves are too beautiful to look at directly
  • Yusuke actually accepted a few offers because he misunderstood the situation; he had initially thought that the companies would provide him with models, and Ann had to bail him out.
  • Haru occasionally treats the Thieves by taking them to five-star restaurants; her, Yusuke, and Akechi discover that they have similar tastes in dining.
  • She and Makoto are the two that plan special events for the rest of the Thieves. They’ll sit side-by-side and intermittently rest their heads on the other’s shoulder while they brainstorm. they’re so cute i want twenty
  • Akechi’s true colors are like a complete 180 from his civilized, charismatic demeanor; when Akechi’s completely comfortable around the Thieves, he’s actually very sarcastic and surprisingly playful. 
  • He’s also that one friend that sends pictures of trash cans to others with the caption ‘that’s you’. he’s such a jerk i love him

anonymous asked:

Hi I'm new to bts and I just found your blog (love it btw!) I want to get to know the boys more if you could describe each of them in a few traits what would they be?

Thanks for loving BTS and our blog, we’re all glad you’ve joined us ^^

Ahh, okay, hard question! I could describe them each as so many different things, and because we may perceive them differently, people might not agree with my opinions~ And there are things I could describe all members of BTS as. This includes (but is not limited to): hardworking, appreciative, hilarious, down to earth, sweet, genuine, etc.. But okay, the members. I’m going to try to use only three adjectives per member so it doesn’t get too long, haha:

Namjoon: Namjoon is so.. Ahh. I really fell for his personality. If I could describe him in a few traits, it would be introspective, open, and noodle. Yes, noodle. Though I haven’t been part of this fandom for very long, it’s not hard to see how much Namjoon has grown over time. He has learned a lot about the world and himself. Like any of us, he has struggled and made mistakes, but he always tries to understand and better himself as a result. He also constantly shares his thoughts with us all, which really makes me feel like he’s just one of us, taking life day by day. And he really never lets any of us feel left out, always being inclusive in speeches, learning languages, etc~ He really has a lot on his shoulders as the leader of BTS, but I think he’s doing an incredible job. I also described him as noodle because he’s really just so silly when he lets loose. Who remembers that VLive when he danced on his bed? ^^

Seokjin: I’m so happy and thankful the boys (and the rest of us) have someone like Jin to look up to, because he is truly amazing. To describe him, I’d say he’s reliable, generous and lighthearted. He’s always looking out for the members and keeping everyone’s spirits up, which isn’t an easy task. I’m positive he does a lot of things we don’t see as well. On the other hand, he also constantly gives to us~ for example, remember the list of things he did for his birthday? Just to share his time with us. My heart exploded. However at the same time, Jin is level headed and still manages to do the things he originally set his sights on doing, such as attend university and graduate! Being part of BTS was not at all in his plan, but look at him now! It says so much about his character~ Even though Namjoon is the leader of the group, Jin works really hard as the “oldest hyung,” who inspires the rest of us to not only dream big but also let life take you along for the ride. He truly leaves me in awe.

Yoongi: Ah, where do I start!? I would describe Yoongi as passionate, complex, and a grandpa. He really puts his all into his music and as we saw in Agust D, he opened up a whole new side of himself to the world. He didn’t get to where he is easily, but he was patient and hardworking and now he’s even producing songs for other artists. He’s someone to look up to because he really needed to persevere to make his dreams a reality. And somehow he manages to go from pouty and tired to smiley and energized in seconds. He still surprises me, haha. There are many parts to him that I only wish I could get to know. He may not be as loud or constantly posting like other members, but he does cute things and posts selfies when he knows we miss him. Yoongi is honestly just so interesting to me and I may not be describing his character very well but just know that I love and appreciate him so much~

Hoseok: Ohhhh boy. Where does one even begin? Hoseok is inspiring, adaptable and warm (like the sun). For someone whose specialty was dancing, he’s become quite the amazing entertainer, who can now rap and participate in the music making as well. I seriously admire him so much, as everyone should. He had a dream and worked his butt off to acquire other talents to make that dream come true. Now he’s on stage, performing MAMA and making me cry in the crowd! This is kind of why he is (in my opinion) adaptable. He can take part in many different things and show the best of himself no matter what. Also, though he apparently has a more serious character than what we see, he has done really well with his bubbly and angelic “J-Hope” stage presence. Honestly, I think he’d be a really amazing friend that I wish I could have irl. I also said he’s warm, but I don’t think that needs any explanation. He’s so lovely and he truly radiates light~

Jimin: Jimin, our sweet boy! I would describe him as compassionate/affectionate (I think they go together when describing him), thoughtful, and smol (hehe). Does compassionate/affectionate even need explanation? Jimin is the most outwardly loving towards his members, whether it be on stage/in person (what stands out to me is when he hopped over to Tae after he spoke about his grandmother at Muster) or his posts every time someone appears on a show/releases something (Jin on LOTJ, Yoongi releasing Agust D). He’s so supportive and always makes the members feel appreciated. It’s like he does the things we wish we could do for the members. I have no doubt that he’s this way in their home, talking to the members who are going through a hard time and helping them get through it. He’s also just so thoughtful when it comes to us. We see a lot of their perspective thanks to him, as he always shares videos of himself or other members. He keeps us close, and for that I’m so thankful. Jimin has a pure heart and though he himself has struggled he has always stayed true to who he is. I also described him as smol, because he’s so good at being cute. When he smiles his eyes light up and somehow manages to radiate love~

Taehyung: Aw, my heart. Open-hearted, multi-faceted and youthful. Similar to Yoongi, Tae is also one who seems to have many sides to him, some that I’m just so curious about. He has a really open mind, and with that, open heart, and I think that’s why he has so many friends. I think he must be really good at finding a way to connect to people, and that leaves me in awe of him.Tae also has many interests and sometimes a deep way of thinking. I wish I could get to know him on a personal level just to hear his thoughts on art, the world, everything. I think there’s more to him than meets the eye. He’s also very youthful, as I’m sure we all can see in Bangtan Bombs and Bon Voyage. Remember when he got lost and was sooo okay with it? And when he spent forever flipping the water bottle? I know I don’t know him personally, but I think Tae really tries to make the most of life, living it to the fullest day by day, like kids do. I love that about him.

Jungkook: Aw man, what do I even say.. He’s amazing, to say the least. I’d describe him as courageous, relatable, and charismatic. He started this idol-life when he was really young, and that must be a lot to deal with and grow up into. He didn’t get to do a lot of the normal things that I’m sure we all did in middle/high school, but he’s really made the most of it and now is thriving and has even made friends outside of Bangtan. He’s also trying so hard to expand his skill set, trying to practice writing and producing even though it’s hard for him. For that, he’s courageous. Somehow, though, he still is just like the rest of us. He’s seemingly introverted, is a bit shy, and can be a total fanboy (GD, IU!?). There’s something so relatable. All in all, he’s really grown into who he is today. His loud laugh, competitiveness and his silly facial expressions are all parts of him I love.

WOW I said I wasn’t going to make it long asdfghjkl; !!! Why am I like this.. Apologies. When I start talking about them, I can’t stop. Anyways, here are some of my thoughts on each of the members. This took me two days to write~ I don’t even know if this is the answer you expected but thanks for asking, since it was fun talking about them. ^^

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Order in my courts, listen carefully as I dictate,
I’m the very Capricorn you’d heard of just the other day,
My success and ambition is an admired burning flame,
If you hadn’t heard, you’re jealous of me, and my classy game

Some say I have no heart, or that I’m hard to love,
They think playing for the money is simply not enough,
My head strong charismatics aren’t for everyone,
But I don’t care if you don’t like it - I’ll stop for no one.

Star Wars ~ Personality Types

- This is my own personal take on the personalities of the most prominent Star Wars characters so far. I spent some time really wanting to perfect it using both MBTI as well as including their predicted Enneagram (predicted for now, more in-depth look at that side of the personality coming in a post very soon). (P.S.) - Characters such as Rey and Luke as well as Anakin and Kylo Ren may have more individual posts concerning this in the future since they are more complex to discuss in a condensed way.

• Luke Skywalker - INFJ

Okay so I’ve seen it around that Luke is an INFP but I don’t think that’s the best assessment. I take him as an INFJ. This goes for his overall character arc so far. INFJ sometimes called “The Advocate” is one of the rarest and very complex. Depending on their temperament they can sometimes come of as extroverted but they need to step back and recharge on their own as well. This applies to Luke. He’s very much a strong group member but is very okay with separating himself from others if that’s what needed for him. INFJ’s are extremely insightful, they can see what lies underneath that may not be as clear to others. This gives them a silent understanding which fuels a passionate nature. They are not ones to back away from what they believe to be right. Luke, particularly in episode 6 shows this with his mercy towards Darth Vader who most importantly is his father. He is able to forgive. INFJ has a talent for seeing past the masks others wear to see the truth beneath. INFJ weaknesses very apparent with Luke as well is an overly sensitive nature seen in some frustrated outbursts he has had in the past. Also with Luke’s present actions in episode 7 we see the INFJ tendency to close off and a need for privacy. Another reason I feel so strongly that Luke is INFJ is mostly due to him having one of the strongest character developments. It’s a subtle development compared to others but strong nonetheless. He goes from an idealistic young man, to a thoughtful and skilled Jedi to a world weary older man. What sets him apart from INFP to being an INFJ is the fact that although he is extremely idealistic he can more easily take these ideas from his mind and actually take the leap to pusue them in a concrete way. For example the fact that he established his own Jedi academy.

• Leia Organa - ENTJ

Leia to me reads as a very strong ENTJ sometimes called “The Commander”. Leia from when we first met her has always been an individualist and very headstrong. She knows what she is capable of and knows very well that she can and will take care of business. Leia also doesn’t come of as introverted, she’s not gregarious but she’s definitely a people person apparent in her successful longstanding position as a public figure. ENTJ can at times be prone to being argumentative but it’s only because they believe so much in what they know to be the right way. And we know very well that Leia doesn’t shy away from confrontation. ENTJ makes for a very strong leader. Leia who has gone from a royal role, to a political one and now to general shows her capability for taking on a leadership role. Her traits are what make her such a good and reliable leader. ENTJ doesn’t care for dancing around a problem, they cut to the chase and like to get things done. Traits of ENTJ - self confident and strong willed, traits ever so present in Leia. Leia is never a damsel in distress in the films. Most of the time she proves herself to be more efficient than of those around her. But ENTJ isn’t only about thought and action they are charismatic and can inspire others and they care a lot towards what’s important to them.

• Han Solo - ESTP

To me Han is very much a textbook ESTP. ESTP often called “The Entrepreneur” fits him like a glove. Charismatic and not afraid of the attention of others is what makes Han who he is. He’s the jokester of the group always offering a biting comment tinged with sarcasm. Not that humor is a basis here but I like to think of ESTP as a light that others can’t help but flit around like moths to a flame. ESTP’s don’t usually bog themselves down in too many details or plodding concepts and instructions. They are the type that can sometimes rely on instinct and leap before they look. But don’t let this fool you ESTP are more perceptive than you may think on first glance. They may be buzzing around life but the pick up on change and aren’t afraid to ask questions. In the films Han always has an idea and if that fails there’s always a plan B. Han has always been the quick on his feet idea man. Now onto ESTP positive traits. Like ESTP Han is bold sometimes acting on things others wouldn’t dare to attempt on their own. He’s direct always calling it as he sees it which sometimes could be a problem sometimes not depending on the situation. Also ESTP has a very practical streak not fooling around with anything that seems arbitrary, for example Han’s initial scoffing of the Force. On the negative side there is a tendency to be insensitive at times. Also a defiant nature where they like their own set of rules and resist being caged in by rules or repetition. Han is one who appreciates his freedom.

Anakin Skywalker - ISFP

I pondered Anakin for awhile till ISFP presented itself as the best choice. At first glance you might assume Anakin has extroverted tendencies but underneath he very much has an introverted nature. ISFP is termed “The Adventurer”. ISFP enjoys mixing up the the traditional way and this can mirror Anakin’s questions towards the Jedi order and if it was actually the right way to do things. ISFP are very spontaneous and experimental, liking to play around with ideas. We mustn’t forget that before going into Jedi training Anakin spent his time tinkering around with metal and machinery getting pleasure out of creating things out of those objects. ISFP also have a knack for spontaneity or at least enjoy pushing the limits of their passions seen in Anakin’s early love of flying that through his own perseverance made him into a talented pilot. ISFP are very charming and most have personalities that make them likable to those they meet. They may be quiet at times but like we saw in Anakin they have a passionate streak which in Anakin’s case may have turned into a negative. ISFP can also struggle with jealousy and low self esteem. Jealousy may stem from their competitive streak causing them to escalate something small into a big ordeal. They also have a tendency to get stressed out easily. Of course we all know that Anakin turned into Darth Vader which could be a result of these negative traits outweighing the positive. Of course in the end it could be argued that the good for example intense feeling and sensitivity towards others gave Anakin his final redemption in the end.

Predicted Enneagram - 8w7

Padme - ESFJ

Padme was another tough one to type but I feel very confident in her being an ESFJ. ESFJ often referred to her as “The Consul” is one that likes to encourage and strengthen others they care about. ESFJ can often come across as extremely popular to those around them which adheres to Padme being a very likable figure to those in the political arena who worked close with her. ESFJ is often attributed to the altruistic trait. Someone who feels a strong need or responsiblity to help in pushing the future in a positive way. This aligns with not only ESFJ’s but Padme’s strong sense of duty. Another important factor is ESFJ and their warm and welcoming nature. Like Padme they enjoy harmony for everyone and work to make that happen. One of ESFJ’s negative traits is a tendency to be too selfless, spreading themselves thin for others and forgetting the good for themselves in the process.

Predicted Enneagram - 2w1

Obi - Wan Kenobi - ISFJ

Obi-Wan is often seen as an INFJ but after pondering it for awhile I really want to type him as an ISFJ. ISFJ called “The Defender” a term that fits Obi-Wan very well. ISFJ is very balanced on their traits as well as with characteristics that may not be as apparent. For example they can be sensitive to things around them but they can be analyzers as well. They are reserved as well but if needed they can quickly and easily be sociable and skilled with public interactions. ISFJ’s can also be perfectionists and are concerned with getting a job done right. This also goes with their hard working and loyal traits both seen in Obi-Wan. As with Obi-Wan they can be quite careful and patient people. Obi-Wan is always seen in this calm and understanding manner. He’s never one to rush too quickly and ponders implication. But this doesn’t mean this is a type that can’t be enthusiastic or imaginative. This helps with their gift of empathy. Sometimes they can be too humble and don’t go out of their way for great public recognition. What’s mainly important to them is doing what’s right and it doesn’t matter to them that they get accolades for it. Negatively they can be quite private and also reluctant towards lots of change.

Predicted Enneagram - 1w9

Rey - ISTP

Rey was very fun to type and I feel she fits ISTP very well. ISTP is sometimes called “The Virtuoso”. ISTP’s are very much explorers at heart brimming with curiosity and imagination. They like to take the buzzing thoughts in their minds and make things. They like making things and getting their hands dirty. Rey being a scavenger fits very well into this. Beyond the traits she had to use on Jakku in finding parts and figuring the details of mechanics she also expresses this after the escape in her talent at tinkering around on the Millennium Falcon. This is another type that shows contradictions, those which Rey show a lot. Very friendly towards others but easily private with their thoughts and emotions which they prefer to keep to themselves. To those close to them they are very bright and energetic. This is also a creatively minded type. Not only with the bits and pieces she’d find on Jakku which she’d turn into something of use but also in times of crisis coming up with ingenuity in new ways. They are also good in crisis. This is fully seen in Rey and Finn’s initial escape, though obviously a bit shaken with the turn of events in an otherwise dull life she doesn’t let it fluster her at all. Negativily they can be stubborn and insensitive to others. For example Rey’s initial refusal to listen to Maz and running away instead. Also very private, Rey is extremely private with her difficult past and sense of loneliness she doesn’t really share with others. This can be a type difficult to get to know fully, really apparent in Rey since she on occasion can contradict herself. For example as mentioned before she doesn’t care to let others know of her more personal struggles or her tendency to let her anger get the best of her. Most obvious is her very bright and energetic personality that acts as a way of shielding the parts of her she doesn’t want known by others.

Predicted Enneagram - 9w8

Kylo Ren/Ben Solo - INFP

Okay hear me out on this but Kylo as an INFP makes a lot of sense at least to me. Kylo at first glance can be a very hard to type character since as we’ve first met him he is in great turmoil and dealing with manipulation from an outside force which has gone on since a young age. INFP is either referred to as “The Diplomat” or “The Idealist”. In my head Kylo is an INFP but a very unhealthy one at this point in time. If you take asservtive and turbulent sides to the types in consideration Kylo is very much on the turbulent end for INFP. More so than any other type INFP has a tendency to revert inward and close themselves off. They feel most comfortable in their own inner world surrounded by their own thoughts. This is a type that relies heavily on their introverted feeling which is immensely seen in Kylo. They go by a code based on their personal ideals and principles and can sometimes become tunnel visioned in the process. INFPs are also a type that never like to fit into a specific mold others want them to fit into. They can be quite contrary on this behalf and get angered and rebel into a different role that to them feels right. But with such an idealistic and busy mind they can easily be conflicted. Speaking as an INFP myself I feel this is a type that struggles the most in settling on an identity. This feels true to Kylo. As a child he was dropped into the role of being the atypical Jedi padiwan under the education of Luke then just as quickly he was lured by Snoke to the dark side all this happening in his most formative years. To me Kylo in his struggles between the dark and undeniable pull to the light just wants to feel comfortable in who he is meant to be. He just doesn’t know what that really is. This plays into the INFP’s tendencies to be too altruistic. In this case Kylo feels a commitment to the dark in the process ignoring his own needs. One striking similarity is the INFP’s intense aversion to criticism which is a negativity of their intense idealism. They take this as a personal attack on themselves and can get riled up instead of taking a step back to reassess the situation. It’s not commonly mentioned but because INFP is so engrossed in it’s personal feelings it’s not uncommon for them to be volatile mostly because they can feel too much. I think INFP explains a lot of why Kylo is such a polarizing figure, because the traits are their they are just shown in unhealthy ways and not as obvious but they are there.

Finn - ESFP

Finn is definitely a ball of energy that really brightens those around him through his interactions. This is why I feel he is an ESFP. Sometimes you may see this type called “The Entertainer”. Above all this is a type that has almost excellent people skills. Finn displays this very well through his interactions with Poe, Rey, and the others he encounters. He’s pretty quick with his social skills which is a good explanation on how likable and how most of his encounters turn into friendships. This is a type that pulls energy from those around them, they get satisfaction from the enjoyment people have with being around them. This is also a Bold type which you can see in Finn. It’s not like we know of any other storm troopers that have gone against protocol and escaped in such a blaze of glory. Also though reluctant at first Finn is immensely fearless especially in the face of battle ultimately picking up the lightsaber on occasion and holding his own in standoffs. This is also balanced with a conflict adverse tendency in this type. Although Finn is extremely fearless he doesn’t go out of his way to get involved in trouble.

Predicted Enneagram - 2w3

Poe Dameron - ENFJ

We haven’t seen a lot of Poe onscreen but so far I see him as a very possible ENFJ. Through what I’ve seen of him he displays quite a few important traits key to this type. ENFJs are excellent in leadership roles and crackle with a passion and charisma that is clear to everyone around them. Since people are drawn to such a personality trait it is no surprise that they are commonly a leader of some sort. Just as Poe is with being an extremely passionate resistance member known for his impeccable flying talent. People are drawn to them but it goes both ways because ENFJ has a truly genuine interest in others. They are also immensely optimistic people. This is a reliable type if you put your faith in them they will go out of their way not to fail you. Example being Poe’s determination in completing his task at hand, putting his own safety at risk for the greater good. Sometimes I have seen Poe typed as a thinker instead of a feeler which I feel is misguided. ENFJ’s dominant trait is extroverted feeling which aligns with some of Poe’s most memorable actions. For example his concern with being reunited with BB8 saying he’ll come back for him and his genuine happiness in Finn’s help and being reunited again.

BTS Date Types

Seokjin - Picnic
Jin likes the girl that’s feminine, a girl who is sweet and caring, who can cook and clean, a girl who would make a good wife and mother. He also can cook. I think ideal date types for Jin would be something sweet and romantic, like a picnic date. You both could bring your home cooked food and also  would talk, get to know each other better, and soon realize just how much you liked one another.

Yoongi - Sleepover
He would like girls who were similar to him. He would want a super hardworking, but still lazy, passionate girls who were artistic and independent. I think Suga’s ideal date types would be simple and casual. He would invite you over to his house to watch a movie, write songs, listen musics, and also a lots of cuddles.

Hoseok - Night Club
J-Hope would want a fun, optimistic girlfriend with an amazing sense of humor, intelligence, bright, kind-hearted girl, always be smiling and cheerful, and one who shared his interests. I think because he is rapper and dancer, his girl would enjoy the music and dance like him. So, it’s ideal to have date in the night club.

Namjoon - Cinema
Rap Monster would like confident and intelligence girls, a girl who was super dedicated to her hobbies, and had a wide variety of interests, someone he can have an intellectual discussion with, someone he could cuddle with in bed as you debated philosophy, and would listen to him whenever he needed someone to talk to. A simple trip to the movies where he could finally talk some, get to know each other with popcorn and coffee would be perfect for his ideal date types.

Jimin - Dinner
Jimin would want to be with a girl who was very open and warm, very friendly and charismatic, a girl with a cuter personality, who despite all of her charisma would still be slightly awkward and clumsy. He often on diet, so a girl who could cook healthy food for him would be perfect. He spent so much time at practice room and would come home tired. I think Jimin would like date types that included candle light dinner, you would realize just how sweet Jimin really was.

Taehyung - Amusement Park
He would want to be able to see his partner as a best friend before a girlfriend, a girl he had fun with, someone who could make him smile no matter what, a dorky, awkward girlfriend who was goofy and charming, a super laid back girl, who can take care of him, someone who could get him to smarten up and act mature when he needed to be. An ideal date types with V would be a trip to something casual and fun, like Amusement Park.

Jungkook - Park
He would prefer more shy girls, someone who like music, art, and reading, a girl who liked staying at home and rainstorms and cuddles with tea as you both talked, a smart girl, someone who would care about him, that would always be there for him, and someone with common sense with him. He likes games, dance, skateboard, and do anything adventurous. An ideal date types with Kookie would be a trip to the park. This way, he could talk to you, get to know you.

anonymous asked:

Prompt: Lance struggles with his body image for whatever reason. Some of the others pic up on his suffering and try to help him feel better about himself (preferably a completely platonic)

Platonic you ask, platonic you get!

Lance stared at his arms in displeasure, his eyes trailed down to his stomach and then to his legs. Too skinny.

He didn’t like his lack of broad, his lack of manliness. It was disheartening to stand next to Hunk, Shiro and even Keith. Them and all their muscle, them and theirs strength, when Lance himself was skin and bones. It was moments like these that Lance felt least like a warrior fighting in a war and more like a child.

He sighed as he shovelled some food in his mouth before he left to training, where the others were also headed. He went to the changing room and shrugged off his clothes, cringing when Shiro walked past with his shirt off, his abs and pecs naked to the world, swole arms flexing as he put on his armour. Lance once again poked at his arms and deflated a he felt nothing but a small, taut muscle.

They had gotten ready and left to train.

Slytherin vs. Hufflepuff

Alright darlings, I’ve gotten many requests all for this since yesterday and these two are more similar than you think.  It’s pretty common to confuse these two houses.  For example, many people upon meeting me call me a hufflepuff and call a close friend of mine a slytherin, when really it’s the opposite.  We’re just each more stereotypically the other house…. I bake cookies to bring into classes and she is more aggressively opinionated, but, I digress…..

Here’s how they’re similar:  They’re both extremely hardworking and driven, tend to be steady in working towards their goals.  They tend to treat everyone with a certain level of dignity, no matter their feelings towards you (unless you are truly BEYOND terrible for them, in which case they will be passive aggressive).  Both care about what people think of them, though for slytherin it’s more about a general reputation than specific people’s opinions, and they each feel that other people should be able to do their own thing, or think what they like, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone/isn’t pushed on them.  They tend to be very likable and charismatic from the outside, and most people enjoy their company. Basically, they do tend to seem similar from the outside (unlike in the books where slytherins are like performing blood sacrifices and hufflepuffs just sit and cry all day (thank you, Harry, for your Gryffindor bias).  So…. differences:

1. When they don’t like someone: Hufflepuffs tend to dislike them and go no further, like I hate you, you hate me, I’m going to ignore you now, let’s move on.  Slytherins….. well, we’re a bit more petty.  It’s more like, I hate you and I’m going to go out of my way to either make other people subtly dislike you, or I feel like I can’t move on until I have done something tangible with my own life to write this wrong.  Basically, slytherins turn into VERY unhealthy, self-obsessed versions of gryffindors.  They need to prove it to OTHERS that their better, so when they’ve finally completed this big task to do so, they’re looking around to see that no one cared about it as much as they did, and…. well, they tend to be bitter.  Basically, in general, hufflepuffs tend to be more comfortable with emotions in general, and are usually healthier, while slytherins are so obsessed with perfection that they repress their emotions and either become whiny or unable to move beyond the point that they’ve told you TEN BILLION TIMES.

2. Honesty and fairness:  I think I’ve brought this up before, but this is where hufflepuff gets its positive reputation while slytherin screws itself over.  Hufflepuff wants thing honest and fair, even if its at their expense and for the benefit of someone they don’t like.  They are a bit more ‘well this is right, and so this is how it should be, for ALL people’.  Slytherin wants things fair for everyone, as long as they aren’t being hurt, and, well, they really don’t see anything wrong with favoritism as long as they’re on the receiving side.  In fact, though they understand it’s wrong and may briefly feel bad, a slytherin who sees something unfair happening to an enemy accounts it more as ‘karma’ than something they should be stopping.  Example: a hufflepuff and a slytherin both are students of a very frightening and intense professor who grades impossible, everyone hates them, but for some reason, this professor has taken a special liking to the student (and a few others), and treats them specially.  They get easier grading, flexibility with deadlines, basically anything they ask for, freedom to say whatever they want, and do whatever they want.  However, the rest of all the students are still stuck with nearly failing every assignment and being treated…. well, less than you are.  The hufflepuff says ‘I know this is nice, but it’s still wrong, and really, the teacher shouldn’t do that to me’.  They try to talk with the teacher offhandedly about how others are having difficulty and saying things are unfair, even if it means that they lose their spot as a ‘favorite’.  Slytherin goes, no way man.  If they did something to get special treatment, they won’t mess it up, they’ll use it. If one of their friends complains, they’ll tell then exactly how to become a favorite as well, but the slytherin won’t mess it up for themselves, because a little part of them inside LOVES to feel like they are being treated differently.  

3.  Idealism:  Underneath everything, idealism is a big difference between the two houses.  Slytherin sees things exactly as they are, and if that’s the game the world is playing, it’s stupid to play by any other rules.  Hufflepuff has this more dreamy idealism about how things should be and how they could be, and tries to live and maneuver within the self-imposed constraints they have.  Slytherin sets their rules based on how the world works, and how they can play the game more efficiently, and hufflepuff is playing based on their rules, because the world needs kindness and help, not ruthlessness.  Hufflepuff is the most unrealistic house in this sense, and can often overlook the unfortunate state of reality, which means they are either extremely successful because they won’t accept what is, or very unsuccessful for the same reason.  Slytherin is the most realistic house, meaning while they know how to accomplish much, they almost always become depressed and bitter at the state of the world, feeling as if there is no way to change it, and nothing will become better.  

4. Centering in self:  Both houses are the two that make their decisions based on the world, but slytherin is centered in self while hufflepuff is centered in others.  Hufflepuff makes nearly all its decisions based on group dynamics and balance, and peace, calm, all those nice harmonious things.  Ultimately, they want to do for other people and will sacrifice their own wants.  Slytherin knows what it wants for itself, an typically makes the decisions that it thinks will help to get it what it wants, and though they try not to burn their bridges, slytherins can probably count on one hand the people they truly care about.  Hufflepuff wants to save the entire world (again, idealism) while slytherin chooses a few and says screw all the rest (again, unhealthy bitter realism).

5. Openness in actions vs. Actions to serve other ends:  I’ve found this one to be pretty consistent.  When both houses do something, hufflepuff reasoning tends to be very clear while slytherin reasoning only makes sense to them.  Basically, hufflepuff is doing things for the obvious reasons, or for the sake of doing them, while slytherin is doing them for a reason 600 steps later (any means to achieve their ends).  Hufflepuff works at a soup kitchen.  Why?  They wanted to get some time volunteering and also helping other people feels nice.  Slytherin works at the soup kitchen.  Why?  Because they will be accurately able to determine what it is the needy are lacking, how they can, ten years from now work and run an organization to stop homelessness.  No, that makes too much sense; real life example.  Hufflepuff starts a blog.  Why?  Because they maybe want to connect with people who share their interests, and it’s a place of self expression.  Slytherin creates a blog?  It’s because they feel that with this blog, they will get dedicated followers and later have a fanbase to promote a book they wrote even though the things are in no way connected.  Basically, slytherin motivations are usually hard to understand in comparison to Huff’le puff.

deosluxmea  asked:

Shelly, you were once an atheist, and now you're an Episcopal priest. You chose to go to seminary at a relatively young age and carved out a space in TEC for yourself. There are a number of other welcoming denominations with liturgy and deep theological roots. Why TEC over United Church of Christ, Metropolitan Community Church, Presbyterian (PCA), or Lutheran (ELCA) etc?

This may sound cheap, but it isn’t: one of the big answers is “stuff.”

I care about the material world.  I think matter matters.  

While there’s a very long story about how I sort of randomly landed in TEC before testing out other welcoming denominations, I have definitely chosen TEC over and over again along the way.  I went to a multidenominational seminary.  I had choices.  A lot of choices.  From Orthodox to RC to Pentecostal to every mainline.  I had choices, and I kept picking TEC.  Not unlike a marriage.  

I need stuff, and I think stuff matters.  I think real bread and wine matter.  I think beautiful linens that hundreds of years of saints have faithfully washed and mended matter.  I think beauty matters.  Perhaps it makes me weak, but I need all those things, for worship.  Maybe someone more saintly than me can be in a white room with a wood podium and folding chairs and be in ecstasy with God.  (I’ve found mostly that that scenario helps people enshrine their own feelings as idols, or think that their feelings are God, but maybe I’ve just been in the wrong rooms.)  I need old stuff.  I need to know buildings and fabrics and icons were here before me and will be here after me.  

I need structure.  I need liturgy.  I need a place in this chaotic world where I don’t have to predict what’s coming next, or brace for it.  I need a worship container that isn’t predicated on the personality of the priest, that resists emotional manipulation, that is difficult for a charismatic white dude to co-opt for his own need for adulation.  I react very violently to feeling like I’m being played, after some abuse, and I hate someone assuming I’m stupid enough to have One Specific Submissive And Teary Feeling after a certain guitar chord sequence.  

TEC is also full of weirdos.  There’s a looooooooooot of theological room for pastors - I’m not going to get disciplined for having expansive theology.  I’m allowed to think and to fight.  I couldn’t survive somewhere where that wasn’t true.  It’s a place where the life of the mind is allowed to thrive and where there is (barely) enough room to include me.  

I need Communion every week.  I think more people need Communion every week.  The meal matters.  Consuming Christ matters.  Having a service where the words/Word is in surrender to the meal, the bread and the wine, the feast, the real presence of God among us, the physical act of consumption - that matters.  A hipster dude weep-shouting at me for 40 minutes is not my game.   Pretending the Eucharist is a play meal with pretend things is not my game.  I believe in the stuff.  God matters, literally, in the Eucharist.  God becomes matter.  I need a place where God matters.

1/4 Hi, i read your post about Even being hypomanic and i need your opinion about this beucase you actually know about this disorder from your own experience. When I see Evak I can't stop thinking about it. I know that hypomania doesn't make you fall in love with someone but at the same time, if Even had been hypomanic (since like episode 4 imo) I can't stop this feeling that everythig he did (their first kiss or first sex) was driven by his hypomania and not by his feelings for Isak.

Hello anon,

I’m glad you’re asking me about this. I have bipolar (type II) and, although I’m not an authority figure on the topic (everyone’s experience with bipolar is different), I’ll try my best to explain my thoughts and interpretations of Even and his feelings for Isak in and outside of his hypo/manic episode.
I know there are other SKAM fans who have bipolar too and I hope they’ll feel free to chime in if they have anything to add to my answer.
