worst show to colour


That guy, I’m standing right behind him and I’m holding the frying pan. But I can’t move. He shoots you, and then he turns and looks straight at me. He’s gonna kill me. I can’t make it stop. It’s never gonna stop.

Sugawara laughs when Daichi doesn’t show up in the hideous thing Suga gave him the year before, because he doesn’t dare imply a present from Suga was ugly.

Asahi’s is so cute that everyone in school starts to wonder why they ever thought he was scary.

Nishinoya and Tanaka have matching sweaters.

Ennoshita outdoes everyne: he actually know show to knit, so he’s been working on the worst colour combinations ever since someone mentioned an ugly Christmas sweater party sometime during summer.

KinoshitaNarita are in charge of the snacks and made a whole bunch of gingerbread men wearing ugly frosting sweaters.

Ukai feels too embarrassed to come in an ugly sweater, so instead of that he wears a formal suit, because “that’s Christmassy too”.

Hinata made a bet with Kageyama on who would win and has pulled out all the stops, asking his mother to help him too, though in the end, his efforts to get the worst outfit ever turned out surprisingly coordinated.

Tsukishima wears the jacket of his school uniform over his sweater the whole evening while Yamaguchi has a sweater he got from his grandparents when he was a little kid and that used to reach past his knees.

It is decided that whatever sweater Kiyokowears, it tunrs out looking pretty.

Yachi is appointed as the judge, given her knowledge of design, they figured she knows what makes something UGLY too.

Takeda surprises everyone with Christmas presents: a good luck charm for each one of them.

Kageyama shows up in a sweater with Oikawa’s face on it (that Oikawa gave him for his birthday) and gets the grand prize of the evening.

Hi, I was wondering if you could explain why you think Sam Drake's an ISTP? ^-^ Thanks

Sure thing! I’ve seen a couple of people wondering about this choice actually. For those of you who haven’t seen it, I made this pos of MBTI choices for the Uncharted characters and I put a lot of thought into them - none so much as Sam Drake.

I’ll put a TLDR at the end of this post because I’m sure I’m going to go into a lot of detail in my explanation. Also, spoilers for UC4 but if you’re asking I’ll assume you’ve played.

He was a difficult one to pin down, particularly because his personality changes over the years, but that’s a huge part of why I love this game and Naughty Dog so much - it’s so human. Personalities do change. People fluctuate when they test and people change over time; I believe we are not born with a personality but rather shaped, and we are all the culmination of our experiences.

The breakdown of the ISTP personality type is Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving. I would also add Turbulent (ISTP-T) to that for Sam, rather than Assertive (ISTP-A).

Okay, here goes.

Sam’s experiences in life have been extremely turbulent. When he was around 10 years old, his mother committed suicide. It wasn’t long before his father dumped him and his brother at an orphanage and skipped town. This is not the makings of an extroverted or emotionally open person. We see this in the game - Sam is not emotionally conflicted by his lies, his sensitivities do not prevent him from manipulating others to get what he wants, but he is also quiet, reserved, soft spoken. It was really hard to decide, but in the end I concluded that if Sam had been an extrovert at all, it was only before his time in prison. When we see him as a teenager, he seems more brash and confident - but confidence is not the same as being an extrovert and Nate is Sam’s comfort zone. Introverts aren’t shy - they’re just not as outwardly social as extroverts. Many introverts can socialize just as well as extroverts, even thrive (personally as an introvert, I am exceptionally good in social situations, but it drains me until I can barely function afterwards) but they recharge by spending time alone, or with people they are completely comfortable with. I can personally see teenage Sam (and post-game Sam) taking long motorbike rides alone to clear his head, breathing a sigh of relief when he was still at St Francis’ when Nate finally went to sleep and he didn’t have to extort himself entertaining him anymore. Sam is not a show-off, and when we see him at the Rossi estate, his social prowess (with the waitress and the guy Nate pickpockets) revolves around reserved, personal conversation.

The ISTP personality is made up of explorers - people who are curious to examine the world with their own hands. They enjoy interesting and unusual challenges and prefer to learn through trial and error than be educated. They’re happy to let others in on their projects and explorations - as long as those people do not interfere with their principles or their freedom. I hope you see why this is starting to sound like Sam.

ISTPs are also optimistic, energetic and good-natured. Sam’s optimism feels endless in UC4 even though reasonably, he has no idea how close they are to achieving their goal, if there is any chance of it at all. He’s always saying “we’re going to do this together”, “we’ll find it, just a little further”, “almost there”. He’s undeniably energetic, always first into a fight, but also I believe he is good-natured, despite his lies. He’s kind, always quick to leap to defend people he cares about, and friendly as hell when he’s not under pressure. He doesn’t want to make a big show of it, but I bet he doesn’t think twice about slipping Avery’s coins into Elena’s pockets.

Some of the other strengths of an ISTP - they are imaginative and creative, but best apply this to practical situations. They are both spontaneous and rational, meaning they are very flexible and versatile, easily able to adapt to cope with new situations. This comes with some unpredictability but they are able to prioritize, save their spontaneous bursts of energy for what’s most important. We see this throughout Sam’s life - he is a practical problem solver, but he only thinks well on his feet in the spur of the moment. This makes Sam great in a crisis, and ISTPs enjoy physical risk and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty when they need to. Say, holding a gun to Nadine’s head, or hurling a fist at Gustavo’s gang of inmates when they threaten Nate. They are also not worried about the future - Sam definitely never seems to worry about the long term consequences of his actions - and prefer to live in the moment and take life as it comes.

Because Uncharted 4 is ultimately a story about trust, honesty and loyalty, it is the negative traits of an ISTP that really sealed the deal for me. We see Sam and Nate in this situation of extreme duress that tests them and their close bond mentally and physically, and it is times like this where the worst of people’s true colours show. ISTPs are stubborn and insensitive. They happily move in their own direction with little to no apology, and even when they try to meet others half way with emotional sensitivity, they fall short and nothing comes out right. They are notoriously hard to get to know, keeping their personal matters close to their heart, and easily become blunt and irritated when called out on their lifestyle or choices. 

They are also easily bored and hate commitment. Second time around when you know the story, it’s easier to look at Sam in an unbiased light - he is extremely impatient at times when Nate is piecing together the Avery clues, and on first playthrough I brushed this off as impatience to pay back Alcazar, that he was running out of time - but actually this is just a trait of his personality. He hates to wait, wants to achieve his end goal but hates to have to commit his full effort to it. It’s a somewhat childish “why can’t I have it now” sort of attitude that is typical of people who don’t like committing. I can’t imagine how hard this must have been for Sam in prison, locked down in an endless and unwanted situation with no light at the end of the tunnel. If anything, this would have made him more insular and more insensitive over the years.

Finally, ISTPs biggest flaw is their inclination towards risky behaviour. Their difficulty with other people’s emotions and focus on the moment with no interest in the future leads them to push boundaries and take unnecessary risks, escalating the conflict and danger for no real reason, which tends to have disastrous consequences when it gets out of hand.

The prime example of this off the top of my head without going back and looking for more is when they are on the edge of the cliff with Nadine and Rafe, before Nate falls. This is an intense scene and I’ve gone over it with a fine-tooth comb analysing how differently things could have turned out if Sam has not acted out like this. Obviously, he is defending himself and Nate here, and after two years with Rafe he probably knows more of what our precious angry villain is capable of than Nate does. He’s also been cornered because Rafe has called him out on the lies he’s told Nate, and his betrayal of Rafe’s trust.

Knowing Rafe is dangerous and that they do not have the upper hand in any way at this point, this is not a situation to escalate. But Sam Drake cannot resist. He hates how Rafe is having so much fun exposing the truth and driving a wedge between him and Nate; and yet, I am convinced Rafe is coming to some sort of mutual agreement at this point. He has his fun, he has his rant - he tells Sam how angry he is and then he physically relaxes because he’s got that off his chest and he says “but that’s all behind us now.” Say what you want, but if Sam hadn’t butted in here, I think Rafe would have made them an offer. Help him find the treasure and leave with their lives. Nate’s right, Rafe is a businessman, and he knows he needs their help. But Sam has to go and raise the stakes and say the one thing guaranteed to get Rafe’s blood boiling.

“You don’t deserve it.”

Goddamn it, Sammy. There is no reason for him to say this other than to escalate the situation. He knows it is going make Rafe angry. He knows Rafe is unpredictable and violent. He does it anyway and then the situation gets out of control.

Luckily I don’t think most ISTPs get the opportunity to escalate a situation that is this dangerous.

Perhaps this isn’t the perfect personality diagnosis for Sam Drake, but it works for me. This is how I see him as a character and it explains (although doesn’t justify) many of the actions he takes through the game. I hope you see why I chose it - but if anyone thinks I’m wrong, I’d love to hear what you think!

TLDR; Here is the ISTP traits I believe Sam Drake exhibits:

  • Introverted and reserved
  • Energetic, cheerful and good-natured
  • Very imaginative when it comes to practical things
  • Spontaneous and rational, can switch mindset to fit new situations
  • Unpredictable but able to prioritize Naturals in crisis situation, enjoys physical risk
  • Stubborn and insensitive
  • Notoriously difficult to get to know
  • Easily bored Hates commitment
  • Risky behaviour, unhelpful boundary pushing and they are known to escalate conflict and danger just to see where it goes

anonymous asked:

How do you think Regina really feels about Belle?


Ugh, I wish the writers would spend any time on that relationship at all, because damn is it interesting. 

Essentially, Belle and Regina are two sides of the same coin: they both believe that they alone see Rumplestiltskin for what he really is. But they see two completely different people. 

Rumple is absolutely central to both of their lives, and how they came to be who they are now, as of season 6. Belle is the woman he loves, who he shows his best to and who expects him to try and be good; Regina’s the woman he abused, who he showed his worst to and who expects nothing else. And that colours her whole view of Belle. 

Honestly, I think Regina sees Belle as a very naive, emotionally young woman with no grasp of the real world, who loves Rumple because she’s too blinkered to see him for the monster he really is. I think part of her sees in Belle the same blind trust in Rumple that Regina herself had for a long time, trust he abused to turn her into the Evil Queen. She believes Belle loves Rumple because Belle is inventing something good in him that doesn’t really exist, seeing what she wants to see. She didn’t believe until Neverland that Rumple was capable of love, and once she realises he is, Belle just graduates from ‘pawn’ to ‘super-useful pawn’ when she needs to act against Rumple. 

Their whole relationship has been defined by their first meeting on the road in Skin Deep. Belle is cautious of her, but listens to Regina when she manipulates her to get one-up on Rumple. Belle is trusting, optimistic, hooked on the ideal of bravery and heroism, and deeply in love with Rumple. Belle believes in love, and - at the time - Regina believed love to be weakness. Her treatment of Belle is a perfect example of Regina reinforcing that belief in herself: Belle’s love for Rumple is what brings her into contact with Regina, and turns her into a bargaining chip Regina can keep locked away for when she’s useful. In Skin Deep, Belle’s love for Rumple makes the pair of them weak in Regina’s eyes - it makes them both emotional and susceptible to Regina’s manipulations.

I don’t think that perception of Belle ever really changes, even after Belle confronts her in s3. Partly because Regina can’t allow it to, and partly because despite her outburst, Belle’s love for Rumple makes Belle cave. Belle believes Regina’s apology (weak and manipulative as it is) and leaves it at that. Belle is a weakling twice over, because now she can’t even hold a proper grudge. Belle is weak and naive by virtue of being trusting, loving, and forgiving. 

But then, Snow White, David, and Henry show all of those qualities, and Regina perceives these (especially these days) as their best qualities. So why is Belle different? Well now, knowing as we do that there was always a part of Regina that wanted a sexual/romantic relationship with Rumple (the Evil Queen) her treatment of Belle becomes more complicated. Belle is not just a young, naive girl who loved a monster and got hurt for it: the woman Rumple loves. Belle is not the only woman he’s ever brought to live in his castle - Regina and Zelena both also fit that description - but she’s the only one he fell in love with. He’s never tried to corrupt her or destroy her, or use her for his own selfish purposes. His relationship to Belle is loving and selfless: a direct contradiction to his abuse of Regina.

Honestly, never saw Zelena as more than a nuisance, and his relationship to Regina - while complex and interesting, with definite potential for growth - was essentially loveless. He couldn’t see her as a lover or as a daughter - two roles she desperately wanted to fill with him, hopefully not at once although some of EQ’s lines will never leave my brain - because - as we see with Belle and Bae - he can’t bring himself to use or hurt the people he loves. She was a pawn to him - he said it himself in ‘Changelings’ - but she never accepted that. Belle was never a pawn. Belle wasn’t even on the board. 

What it comes to is that Regina believes she alone knows Rumple, because she was exposed the longest to his darkness and his corruption. 

So much of Regina is built on her relationship with Rumple, and so in true Stockholm Syndrome fashion, she believed that they had a deep, special bond that no one else could come close to. To preserve that delusion, she had to believe that what she knew of Rumple - the cruel, corruptive monster - was the truth of him. That it matched and belonged with the cruel, corruptive monster he awakened in her. If Rumple’s cruelty is a mask - if a good man lurks beneath - then what is she? She’s false, she’s built on a lie, she’s alone and there’s no one out there who can understand her. Therefore, she has to believe she knows him better than anyone, when really she barely knows him at all. 

You only have to look at the EQ’s sneering about Belle to see the evidence of that. Belle does see the truth of Rumple (when she’s not being manipulated by Black Fairy Dream Baby), and expects him to push through his worse impulses and be the good man she sees in him. She is disappointed and hurt when he fails, because she knows he’s better than his destructive impulses. 

This, to Regina, doesn’t make sense. If there’s a good man in there, how could he use and abuse her the way he did? Why couldn’t he love her, the strong, powerful Queen he cultivated, when he could love a bookish maid with her head in the clouds? He couldn’t: therefore, it is Rumple’s love for Belle that is the delusion, and Belle’s faith in a ‘good man’, and Regina’s knowledge of his dark side is the real truth. 

One of the first things Rumple ever said to Regina was “We’re back where we belong: together”. Regina took it to heart. Regina has believed that line, heart and soul, since the moment she heard it. 

So essentially, what we have here is a logical fallacy: Regina belongs with Rumple. Regina is dark. Therefore, for Regina to belong with Rumple, Rumple must also be dark. 

But she clearly doesn’t belong with this ‘good man’ Belle keeps fighting for, and if we take as firm truth that she belongs with Rumple, then logically that ‘good man’ can’t exist. Therefore, Belle has to be a silly girl chasing a fantasy, and Regina becomes the hard-nosed adult who understands the darkness and can look him in the eye. After all, she trusted him implicitly when she was young, and he used that to destroy her. She (at least, as the EQ) believes she knows him for what he is now, and can embrace that.

Ultimately, I think she interprets Belle’s feelings for Rumple as a very intense schoolgirl crush: unrealistic, rose-tinted, and ultimately foolish. 

And, I think that view extends to Belle as a person (if Regina has any concept of her outside of her relationship to Rumple, and her use as a research tool). But I also think those feelings are entirely a projection of her own insecurities and feelings about herself and about Rumple. Belle is her mirror image, and I don’t think she can see the real person behind it.
