    What the hell is a "clique"?

  3. #3

    Like what you'd see in movies. You know, "just the guys". I wouldn't get so caught up in wording.

    I have mainly female friends with a few guys sprinkled in so I won't answer.

    Just decided to do this, because why not? Don't think these are really the answers you were looking for but I also think you probably have a misconception about how guys operate as a group of friends. Also, our group is not a clique just a loose group of friends.

    1. Well, I'm a bit like the focal point of the group, which consists of my really old friends and a few newer ones I met in HS. It's rare we hang out as a full group it's usually 2-3 or so of the group hanging out with some other friends. The thing I really enjoyed about this group was being able to introduce my older friends and newer friends and have the two groups kinda form one loose bigger group.

    2. Well, only 2 of them have taken the test, but I can make guesses on the others.
    ENFP (Confirmed), ENFJ (Confirmed), ISTJ, INTP, ENTP , ESFP, ENTP (Me). So I guess we lean towards intuitive, but it's not by design at all.

    3. I introduced my older/newer friends, and the ENFJ was a friend of the ENFP and he joined in somewhere later along the way.

    4. We don't plan activities, it's a kinda spontaneous, spur of the moment type thing. I went on a few road trips with the ENFP, ISTJ and INTP those were a fucking blast.

    5. Well, we talk about anything any average guys of our ages (late teens mostly) would talk about. Video games, girls, sports ect.. We all have a pretty absurd sense of humor so we joke about everything. My favorite conversations are when we go deep though, we've had some pretty intense philosophical conversations. Not the heavy kind of philosophic conversations though we usually are still making crazy jokes throughout.

    6. Just lucky to have a pretty solid group of friends. Can't say how much they've really influenced my own life.

    7. Not at all.

    8. Wouldn't choose to change my group of friends.

    I've never had a clique. In middle/high school I had people I was friends enough to eat lunch with and such but rarely hung out in groups with anyone outside of school. For a portion of college, my roommates and a few of their other friends would always do stuff together and I would sometimes wind up along with them. After graduating I would also do things with this group every once in a while, but I didn't consider myself to be part of their clique or anything. Most of my other friends were just people I knew from various activities I went to regularly. Sometimes I would hang out with some of them outside of whatever our common interest was but I never had a core group of people I hung out with.

    I think part of the reason I never had a solid clique is that any time I got close to having a regular group I felt like I was losing part of myself to it, as if part of my identity was being formed by this group. I've never liked any subculture or anything to define me so I'd be hesitant to join up with a group of people regardless. After a time it would start to feel like an obligation as well. People trying to involve me in things or get me to go places I wasn't interested in and it became tedious after a while. Being an outlier who can occasionally wander in suits me much better.

    1. How do you describe your clique? What do you like about them?
    I'm not sure what the hell a "clique" is. Sounds like something out of Mean Girls. That aside, I would describe my group of friends and I as a bunch of jigsaw puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly, the only problem being that we're all from different puzzle sets. We are highly varied in who we are, but that's why it's so much fun being around each other.

    2. Do they have certain MBTI types?
    Probably.

    3. How did you guys meet and finally become a clique?
    We all lived in the same dorm our freshman year of college, so that's how we met each other. We started off as several small groups of friends of 2-3 people, and then kind of slowly merged together over time as we all got to know each other more. There are a few ladies mixed in too, we're not all guys.

    4. What are your favorite activities together?
    Watching sports, playing video games, Ultimate Frisbee, board games (Settlers of Catan can get vicious), watching movies, eating, etc. We're basically family when we're at school.

    5. What are your favorite conversations?
    There are some that have me laughing so hard I cry, those are always fun. Sometimes it gets more serious and you learn something about one of your friends that you never would have expected. I like those moments even more.

    6. How much does your clique influence you and your life?
    As I stated before, they're my family away from home. I was very depressed when I first met them, and they've helped to bring me out of that. They've also been encouraging with my weight loss, and I am now a normal weight when a few years ago I used to be obese. So for the relatively short time I've known them they've been highly influential.

    7. Do you guys have the same, or similar, criteria for your SO? What are those criteria?
    We're all different and each of us values different traits in others.

    8. If you can choose a better clique, what are the things that you want from your circle of friends?
    What better "clique?" I didn't realize that there was a hierarchy of friend groups. I wouldn't change a thing.

    1. I don't know how I'd describe my clique... We're just a group of friends that hang out. I like them because we have a lot of fun when we do stuff, and we all get along well.

    2. I wouldn't know. None of them care about it, and I'm no where near good enough with MBTI to type them.

    3. Me and one of my friends had been friends since Kindergarten. Whenever we made friends with someone, we introduced them to our other friends, and it just kind of grew from from there. I'm still in high school though, and I'll probably only keep in touch with 2-3 of them after I graduate.

    4. Just about anything. We always find things to do, but our favorite hobbies would be paintball and gaming.

    5. That's one of the best parts: We can turn anything into a great conversation. If it's not a serious topic, it almost always ends with us laughing, and if it is serious, we tend to agree on the topic.

    6. Since I'm still a student, they heavily influence everything I do at school. They've also had a big impact on the way I talk.

    7. Not even a little.

    8. I don't want a different clique. I'm happy with my group of friends. The only thing I'd change is 2 of them like to argue a lot.

    *rolls eyes*
    Writing "clique" is more simple and efficient than writing "a group or a circle of friends that you usually hangout with".

    Most of my (few) friends are actually girls. XD I mostly do my own thing; I've never really had a clique of any kind and don't really want to. I'm more interested in connecting with people on an intimate, interpersonal level, and it can be hard to do that in a group. My social instinct is last enneagram-wise, which is probably why I can't relate to the whole clique thing.

    Also, as @Proteus said, I honestly feel like I'm losing a bit of my individuality when in a group. Furthermore, groups revolve around common interests often times, and my interests are much different than what most people are interested in. Most of the time, I just don't want to bother dealing with it.
