This is a discussion on The PerC community and all of its glory! within the INFP Forum - The Idealists forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; Originally Posted by portionsforfoxes I haven't really talked to anyone on PerC a whole lot. I sort of wish that ...
It would be interesting to see most of the introverts looking at some random fixed point on the screen though.
So, get some cool people off this and do it, so it's not like a one-on-one (which would be ultra-creepy).
Get some Introverts, of course. I doubt anyone should have to put up with being in a conversation -- real or virtual -- with potentially 4 Extraverts...
Introverts, PM me your MSN accounts so we can have this little experiment [and also so I can spam you for "Enlarge Your Penis" emails]
I seem to have sufficiently creeped everyone out.
But if it had said "guy" instead of "girl", it might have sounded a bit like that. Okay, that sounds offensive. But I meant "guy" as in "old guy"- Still slightly offensive. Oh well...
And the part with on the other side of the planet would have to go. Okay, I'm kind of destroying my own argumentation.
By the way: I haven't got an MSN account. (But spamming me with "Enlarge Your Penis" emails would be sort of pointless...)
I get the old guy thing. Sometimes I like what certain members, especially INFPs, have to say but I agonize over adding someone (I think most or all of my 5 have added me, I could be wrong) who is a lot younger than me.
OK let's try something. One the count of three all INFPs add all other INFPs as a friend.
I can't believe you made this thread, but I'm incredibly grateful you did. I suppose it is a lack of initiative on my part. I fairly frequently browse other profiles, to see what I can garner about the person, but I rarely comment, unless I feel compelled, for two reasons: one, the possibility of them wondering 'who is this random person and why is he talking to me/adding me as a friend?' and two, because every comment I post on peoples' visitor message pages inadvertently comes out as a huge wall of text and looks positively scary compared to most of the stuff I see on there. That said, I have had a few interesting and enjoyable conversations. I tend not to start threads because I don't really have that many things to discuss offhand. Most of my thoughts are stimulated by coming into contact with other topics, so I am really grateful for those who do make them.
I suppose the upshot to passivity is receptivity. Pretty much anything goes unless I make a point of saying otherwise. Age, gender, whatever stigmas, nationalities, and so on, I couldn't give a crap about any of it. It's meaningless to me. So, uh, if anyone ever wants to talk to me, and you feel you can withstand my lengthiness then please by all means add or talk away! I could only be grateful.
(Also for the purposes of the experiment, my MSN is thataway <--- on my profile. I've had it since I was 12, so go figure. Send whatever spam you want, it will only be submerged in the sea of the other few thousand emails I haven't gotten round to deleting yet.)
