opposers

fwsfd asked:

Could you please describe how the second and the third function clash ? And how this clash manifests in the types.

Since your second and third function are both complimenting and opposing functions (either perceiving functions or judging functions), they push and pull at one another, constantly, trying to bring one another into balance but instead creating a friction between them, sort of a snap-pull between two things that seem diametrically opposed.

IXFJ: Fe wants to judge things according to social behavior and external moral ethics, but Ti wants to understand not only the reasons why these decisions are being made but why it feels a compulsive need to judge them.

EXTP: Ti wants to assert the logical impracticalities of a situation astutely but also doesn’t want you to feel bad that you’re wrong (Fe), so it may hesitate to assert what it really wants to say in case you’re offended. 

IXTJ: Te just wants to get things done and accomplish things, to objectively list the facts of the situation and move toward completion of the project… but Fi is reminding Te that these actions must align with an inner value system and Fi might even prevent Te from action that would be financially or job-wise advantageous because Fi believes to do so would be… immoral.

EXFP: Fi wants to indulge its feelings and come to a full understanding of them, aligning every action with an inner moral code of behavior, but Te demands action and reminds Fi that emotion or strong moral beliefs are nothing if they do not manifest in the real world, with tangible results.

ISXP: Se just wants to objectively assess situations and take action in its environment to bring about new and exciting experiences, but Ni is demanding it to ruminate on things and see beneath the surface, to find a core “truth” in what’s happening.

ENXJ: Ni wants to spend time ruminating in high abstractions and indulging in inner imaginative experiences, while Se is constantly distracting it with the desire to act in the environment and transform dreams into reality.

INXP: Ne wants to engage in all ideas and actively pursue novel experiences that will bring greater awareness of the connection between all things, while Si feels more comfortable staying home or reminding Ne that details exist for a reason.

ESXJ: Si constantly accesses what is familiar and understood, in a personal filing system, and yearns to cling to those perceptions and beliefs, while Ne is nagging at Si to break away from convention and explore alternative possibilities.

So are you gonna delete your blog the minute beth comes back tonight or are you gonna stick around for the shitstorm coming your way? You are gonna have a hellava lot of explaining to do after all the bullshit you talked about soulmates and bonds and bs. I can't wait to see what you do!

Wow! Now I am not new to this game and I’ve received my share of rather unpleasant, cocky and taunting messages that insulted my blog, my ship, my fellow shipmates and even my cat (not cool!) BUT their point was always referencing a ship as the “opposing” side and my supposed disregard of it. However what you are doing is much, much lower than that because you didn’t come into my inbox to tell me that your “ship” is better than mine or that your favorite character is somehow superior to the one I love…
NO - YOU came to proclaim your glee and excitement over a meltdown that would ensue if a character who very clearly died 8 episodes ago but whose fans despite that have continued to perpetuate shipping war negativity anyways, was somehow revealed “alive” during the finale…
To make it even worse - you are very clearly aware of my blog content, which means that for whatever reason you continuously visit a blog celebrating a relationship you don’t support and by the sounds of it, it’s a blog you want gone…
The disturbing part about this is that you are not even talking about B*thyl but just about B*th herself AND that in itself makes me question whether you are actually a shipper or if you were a shipper who used to ship but is now finding more satisfaction in watching “shitstorms”, upsetting people and basically just being…well…mean!
Now what does that say about you as a person!

To answer your question though - NO, I will not be deleting my blog IF BETH comes back (she won’t be!) because her presence never affected me or my shipping or my blogging for that matter!
I shipped Carol and Daryl before Daryl even said one word to Beth!
I shipped CARYL while Beth was alive,
I shipped CARYL when Beth DIED,
I shipped CARYL after Beth DIED and
I will ship CARYL after she doesn’t come back tonight too…

Let’s say hypothetically Beth indeed does come back tonight (she won’t)!
Nothing about my blog will change and I would have no reason to delete my blog because I am not responsible for whatever “shitstorm” you are looking forward to!
And no if Beth indeed does come back that doesn’t mean that my ship would be threatened by her return whatsoever - if it did then that would mean that her existence compromises CARYL and I don’t think she ever did to begin with. There would be no “explaining” either because it wouldn’t affect the relationship Carol and Daryl could and will have in the future - I have way more faith in my ship and believe way more in the connection shared, to allow a dead 18 year old teenager to cast doubt on anything I believe and support.
Tonight when the finale happens and Beth doesn’t come back - the “shitstorm” you are looking forward to will not be in my tag BUT something tells me you’ll know exactly where to look for it…

I hope tomorrow you have a less hateful day!

Wendy MacNaughton paints live on Periscope

My friend Wendy painted one of her drawings live with the Periscope live-streaming app today, and it made me think about a bunch of stuff. (One of the great things about Periscope is that, opposed to Meerkat, you can archive the video. UPDATE: Actually, it’s only archived for 24 hours. And as far as I can tell, there’s no way to save the video for later? Get the app and watch here.)

1. Periscope is sort of a #showyourwork app on steroids. People can watch you work in real-time, ask you questions, etc. 

2. A tool is only interesting as the people who use it. People commenting on how dumb Periscope is reminds me of all the people who said the iPad was really stupid. (Remember the old “it’s for consuming, not creating” argument? Yeah.) 

John Lennon said, “I’m anartist, man. Give me a tuba, and I’ll get you something out of it.” Give an artist an app, they’ll figure out something cool to do with it. 

Like I wrote in Show Your Work:

3. Watching people do skilled work is mesmerizing. Wendy texted me before she started:

The answer is, of course, a bunch of people. (People used to tell Bob Ross they watched him just so they could fall asleep at night. He loved that.) 

4. Real-time streaming is a performance. The minute you know people are watching you, you become self-conscious, which is sort of when making art breaks down. Wendy’s stream worked really well because she already had the drawing done. (Bob Ross didn’t invent those paintings from scratch — he copied off of a pre-painted canvas on an easel off-camera.) Wendy wasn’t trying to make a piece of art from scratch, and she seemed pretty relaxed about the whole thing. (There was a fun moment you can see in the third screen above where she asked people what color the nurse’s glasses should be. Soon after that, she made it clear she wouldn’t be taking requests for drawings.) 

5. Periscope might be the best for tutorials or Q&A sessions. At first Wendy was just playing music, but then she started to talk about her process, at which point people started asking her all sorts of questions. (Some of them good, some, well, sort of dumb.) It really turned into a kind of on-the-fly painting class. 

I’m excited to see more of my artist friends play around with the app. I’m gonna give it a shot myself at some point, so if you want to play along, follow me on twitter: @austinkleon

There’s Something Very Dangerous Happening in States Across the Country

by Zack Zarrillo

Tim Cook in an op-ed for The Washington Post on ‘religious freedom’ laws:

Men and women have fought and died fighting to protect our country’s founding principles of freedom and equality. We owe it to them, to each other and to our future to continue to fight with our words and our actions to make sure we protect those ideals. The days of segregation and discrimination marked by “Whites Only” signs on shop doors, water fountains and restrooms must remain deep in our past. We must never return to any semblance of that time. America must be a land of opportunity for everyone.

This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings. Opposing discrimination takes courage. With the lives and dignity of so many people at stake, it’s time for all of us to be courageous.

Warrior Culture : Pirate

Naval Raiders used false flag operations (raising the flag of the target ships nation in order to close on the enemy), insurance scams (it was easier and cheaper for both parties if the ship surrendered its cargo to the Pirates bloodlessly), and firepower (force and intimidation) to take ships and cargo’s. Pirates were often a rag tag bunch, using ships of various sizes almost always designed for other purposes but refitted as privateers (lawful pirates given legal permission to target the maritime interests of the opposing countries merchant navies).

Men dream, but dreams hold no value here.

What was first the bright light of hope is turned into a long night of captivity.

Lost in the dark, we surrender our minds, and forget who we are.

But some of us have woken up. They remind us that we all have a choice.

To stand, not kneel.

To oppose, not obey.

To live, not just exist.

It’s quite unusual to be able to watch a ‘Liverpool’ match without having a heart attack every couple of minutes and having to fear that we’re getting humiliated by the opposing team.

You know what? FUCK THIS! THESE STUPID FUCKING DISGRACES OF PEOPLE DECIDED TO HATE ON A GOOD IDEA JUST BECAUSE OF WHERE IT CAME FROM! Way to shit on something positive because of who started it. “Oh no, she’s promoting equality but doesn’t call herself a feminist and is against our ideology! We must ruin her pretty good selfie week idea and shame anybody that’s apart of it or participates in something actually inclusive! This will make people want to be feminist!” 

Most of y’all in the photos can go fuck right off for all I care. You aren’t for equality, just segregation and you look pathetic. anti-feminism-pro-equality is a decent human being, which is more than I can say for the idiots that oppose her. Keep doing what you’re doing girl.

The Unique Growth Path of the ESTJ

From Childhood to Puberty:

Development of Extraverted Thinking

As a child, the ESTJ will develop the Extraverted Thinking function. They are intellectually curious children who will always ask “why?” They will not accept the line “It is true because Mom says so”.

They will also generally be less emotional and expressive than their Feeling counterparts; hence they may come across as cold, detached or even aloof to others.  

If they have not properly developed this function in their youth, they may not know how to evaluate their thoughts and therefore constantly change their stands or decisions.

From Puberty to about Age 30:

Development of Introverted Sensing

During puberty, the ESTJ will start developing the auxiliary function, Introverted Sensing. They will show this development through their interest through action and activities in the real world as opposed to the use of their imagination.

They will also develop an interest in subjects that deal with facts like geography or the natural sciences. They will also display an extremely good memory both in their work and in their everyday life.

If they have not been allowed to develop this function, they may grow up to become judgmental; not seeing possibilities but making stubborn decisions without sufficient information.

From Age 30 to Midlife:

Development of Extraverted Intuition

If these behaviours are not developed by the age of 30, the ESTJ will feel the tension to continue growing and to start developing the tertiary function Extraverted Intuition. The ESTJ may start to use their imagination and become more comfortable with long term goals and targets. They may also start to dream and hope for the future more than before.

The ESTJ can further develop the Extraverted Intuition function through these simple exercises:

  • Brainstorm ideas for activities you can do over the weekend; make a list of things that you have never done before, with people you do not usually meet.
  • Read into world affairs across countries and consider global patterns that may link all of these together.
  • Write a poem about something from nature without using physical attributes to describe it. (i.e. don’t talk about its colour or shape or size)

From Midlife onward:

Development of Introverted Feeling

From midlife onward, the ESTJ’s focus turns toward the inferior function, Introverted Feeling.

Under stress, the underdeveloped Introverted Feeling comes out in a childish and undeveloped way and ESTJs may become extremely emotional or feel uncontrollable depression.

But in midlife, there is an unconscious shift and desire to develop that inferior function in order to achieve wholeness and continual growth. It is an uncomfortable but necessary transition.

Here are some simple exercises to consciously develop the Introverted Feeling function:

  • Think about a good quality of another person that you think is important to you; find a time to praise that person.
  • If you have a conflict with another person, think about what is important to that person in that particular situation and ask yourself if you can suspend your need to be right in order to preserve the relationship.
  • In a group meeting, observe the verbal and non-verbal cues of others and try to gauge the thoughts and feelings of people by just observing their body language.

lanuevasarah asked:

A friend asked me why it's 'buenos días' and not the other way around. Is it just because it's an idiom? Is it to put emphasis on the buenos because the other way around 'días buenos' means good days as opposed to bad ones?

I believe you’re right.

Typically, bueno/a can go in front of or behind the noun.

And typically, bueno/a in front emphasizes that “good” is a quality, while in back it emphasizes “good” in the sense of personality. 

Or that in front, “good” is the most important quality, while in back “good” is a personality trait.

Or in other words…

Es un buen chico. = He’s a good kid.
Es un chico bueno. = He’s a kind kid.

In front, bueno/a takes on the characteristic of “exemplary” while in back it’s sort of like “kind” or “good-hearted”, when speaking of people.

Also when it comes to people, bueno/a can acquire a slightly different meaning with adjective placement, sort of like viejo/a which in front means “long-time” but in back means “old (as in age)”

Son buenos amigos = They are good friends [they are friends who know a lot about each other and trust each other, ostensibly having known each other for a long time or who have built a lasting friendship]

Son amigos buenos = They are kind friends [they are friends who are compassionate and understanding, the “good” is their personality, and is a remark on the person/people and not on the friendship]

A lot of it is very intuitive (the same with mal or malo/a) but it just goes based on feeling I believe. 

When you say buenos días or buenas tardes or buenas noches you’re sort of wishing someone well, hoping that (whatever time of day it is) will be characterized by “goodness” and good fortune.

Also it’s in front because in singular it’s buen día, such as Que tenga(s) un buen día “Have a nice day”. It’s also this way because French says bonjour [bon + jour = good + day, literally], and Italian says bongiorno which is the same as French. 

I think it’s a very politely emphatic and intuitive Romance Language trait.

anonymous asked:

honestly as much as alan moore like to do the "wow my fans sure are stupid" in regards of people loving rorschach he is to blame a lot too. for example, having him as the only one opposing veidt at the end

i agree with this and/but i also think a lot of authors and creators fundamentally underestimate just how far an audience will go in connecting with and liking and praising characters who are awful human beings (generally being straight white dudes of course, mind you) if they get depicted as “badass” enough or “funny” enough (walter white would be a modern example, as would joel from the last of us, but i always personally keep going back to the wildly popular and successful bigotry of archie bunker)

get to know me meme - [5/5] favorite actors: eddie redmayne

“I just think we [actors] are very lucky. I was saying this to a friend over Christmas – that we don’t realize how lucky we are, and we take it for granted sometimes that we have these opportunities to discover these new places and actually really get into the culture and the life. As opposed to just kind of flying in for a little holiday and seeing the facade and the superficial side of the place.”

The Creed of the Assassin Brotherhood teaches us that nothing is forbidden to us. Once, I thought that meant we were free to do as we would. To pursue our ideals, no matter the cost. I understand now. Not a grant of permission. The Creed is a warning. Ideals too easily give way to dogma. Dogma becomes fanaticism. No higher power sits in judgement of us. No supreme being watches to punish us for our sins. In the end, only we ourselves can guard against our obsessions. Only we can decide whether the road we walk carries too high a toll. We believe ourselves redeemers, avengers, saviours. We make war on those who oppose us, and they in turn make war on us. We dream of leaving our stamp upon the world… even as we give our lives in a conflict that will be recorded in no history book. All that we do, all that we are, begins and ends with ourselves.

The Unique Growth Path of the ESFJ

From Childhood to Puberty:

Development of Extraverted Feeling

As children, ESFJs will develop the Extraverted Feeling function. They deeply seek harmony and approval from their parents and will go all out of the way to please them.

They are highly sensitive to the social climate wherever they are, and will be deeply affected if there is rejection or disapproval. They are caring and compassionate children who have a heart for those around them.

If they have not properly developed this function, they may grow up to make erratic decisions or accept the judgments of others too easily.

From Puberty to about Age 30:

Development of Introverted Sensing

During puberty, ESFJs will start developing the auxiliary function, Introverted Sensing. They will show this development through their interest through action and activities in the real world as opposed to the use of their imagination.

They will also develop an interest in subjects that deal with facts like geography or the natural sciences. They will also display an extremely good memory both in their work and in their everyday life.

If they have not been allowed to develop this function, they may grow up to become judgmental; not seeing possibilities but making stubborn decisions without sufficient information.

From Age 30 to Midlife:

Development of Extraverted Intuition

If those behaviours are not developed by the age of 30, the ESFJ will feel the tension to continue growing, firstly to start developing the tertiary function Extraverted Intuition.

The ESFJ may start to use their imagination and become more comfortable with long term goals and targets. They may start to enjoy seeing possibilities and dreams for the future.  

The ESFJ can further develop the Extraverted Intuition function through these simple exercises:

  • Brainstorm ideas for activities you can do over the weekend; make a list of things that you have never done before, with people you do not usually meet.
  • Read into world affairs across countries and consider global patterns that may link all of these together.
  • Write a poem about something from nature without using physical attributes to describe it. (i.e. don’t talk about its colour or shape or size)

From Midlife onward:

Development of Introverted Thinking

From midlife onward, the ESFJ’s focus turns toward the inferior function, Introverted Thinking. The underdeveloped Introverted Thinking of the ESFJ comes out in a childish way under stress, leading ESFJs to be critical of themselves or even sarcastic in their language.

But in midlife, there is an unconscious shift and desire to develop that inferior function in order to achieve wholeness and continual growth. It is an uncomfortable but necessary transition.

Here are some simple exercises to consciously develop the Introverted Thinking function:

  • Pick up a game that requires strategic thinking like chess, card games or computer games. Learn to make better decisions as you progress in the game.
  • Use cost-benefit analysis to make decisions. Consider pros and cons of each using a list. What are the consequences of each decision?
  • Study a controversial subject. Study notes, read up for more information while suspending any judgment. Look at both sides of the argument and notice its merits.

“On behalf of Apple, I’m standing up to oppose this new wave of legislation.”

This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings. Opposing discrimination takes courage. With the lives and dignity of so many people at stake, it’s time for all of us to be courageous.

  • me, an intellectual, looking at the dubai races snapchats as well as the american monster trucks snapchats:ahh, the well-presented frivolity of the bourgeoisie as opposed to the more visceral amusements of the working class, and yet...despite this dichotomy technology unites us all...

Fundamentally, the left are little different nowadays from the schoolyard bully most of us encountered in high school.
Like the playground bully, the left now rely on intimidation and stand-over tactics to get their way.

Whilst the left are not adverse to using violence to achieve their ends………if they can cloak it in the pretense of social justice. They rely more on psychological and social intimidation to cow those that might oppose them.
Social media shaming, threats to destroy an individuals livelihood, regardless of the cost to his or her family, are all now a constant part of the left’s attempts at dominance.

One thing however should be remembered.

Just like that schoolyard bully…..it is all a facade.
A charade designed to fool their intended victim.
They merely project what they so desperately crave……..power.

Just like all bullies……….The left are essentially cowards.
They ape all the right stances and say all the right words.They congratulate themselves daily on speaking truth to power…………But only against those that pose no real threat to themselves.
Locate a Christian cake-maker who opposes the redefinition of marriage…………and they will swarm to the attack.
Find an Islamic cleric who believes that gays should be thrown from the top floor of apartment buildings………..and the left are conspicuously silent.
Like all bullies the left are very good at assessing risk and because the left will do nothing, and believe in nothing, enough to put their lives on the line for…………when it comes to confronting the possible head-hacking cleric, the left just go in search of softer targets.

Just like all bullies……….It only takes a bloody nose for the facade to crumble.

Time to stand up to them and expose them for what they are.

Over the past three months: I have bought a new camera that can be controlled with my iPhone. I acquired a record player, and some essential vinyls. Kudos if you can name the six (soon to be seven) album covers hanging on my wall. I dyed my hair pink, but it needs to be redone. I sold my lofted bed, and got a new one that’s on the ground. Now I’m not so opposed to bringing company over. I also purchased a new bedding set, and I love the comforter. I really hope that there will be no virgin sacrifices on it. Not pictured are my first pair of sweatpants and boots, because who wears clothes at home.
