vampire: the eternal struggle

INTP Viewpoints

XXXX: *says something against an established, but unproven, viewpoint of INTP*

INTP: Well… *Goes in on a rant to the proof of their own viewpoint*

hours of debating later

INTP: *Is not proven wrong, but now on the fence about the previously established issue.*

Note: Seriously, can I please argue about an issue I believe in and actually feel certain about it? I practically provide counter-arguments to my own ideals as I argue for them.

aquaphin  asked:

Can estar be used to express a change in a quality that would otherwise go with ser? (Ahora está gordo)

Not in the way you’re thinking.

Yes, you can use that, but it doesn’t translate the way you’re thinking.

For the most part, height and weight are done with ser. And if you use estar with words like gordo/a, flaco/a, delgado/a, alto/a or bajo/a it comes across as “to look”

So… está gordo/a usually comes across as “he/she looks fat” which is more of a subjective opinion.


But you do see it a lot in cases where someone is trying to say that their weight is temporary, so you’re not totally wrong. There are people who use it as no eres gordo, estás gordo to say it as a “it’s not permanent” kind of way.

I think it’s okay to use as long as you’re making yourself understood by context.

By itself, estar + gordo/a would sound like “looks” or “seems”

When practicing agility, everyone is so quick to stop a dog when he’s made an error.  But are you as quick to stop when he’s made a critical good choice during a session?

Most people rewards ‘ends’ rather than 'choices’. The end of a pinwheel, the end of a contact, the end of the weave poles, or the end of a jump grid, maybe even the end of a sequence. My plea is to get you to look to reward a tough but good choice from your dog, rather than just absentmindedly plowing through a sequence and rewarding the completion of it.
