Anonymous asked: What drives the need to get involved in dumbshit internet "drama"?

Anonymous asked: There is nothing dehumanizing about being quantified. The aversion to being reduced to "numbers and statistics." is purely the result of old assumptions about what it is to be a person. Just because you can be analyzed and out into numbers doesn't mean your experiences and perspective is less valid. Just because you are the sum of your parts doesn't somehow make that sum less grand. Determinism isn't nearly as bad as you think it is. It's not fatalism, it's just perspective.

quantification makes sense if you’re an anthropologist or historian, or if you have a specific disorder and objectivity helps you (though I’m told the MBTI is academically unreliable anyway).

But the land of personality type self-diagnosis for the masses is just hokey navel-gazing and I don’t think it’s a healthy or accurate way to view yourself.

It’s like turning on the radio in the middle of Hey Ya and deciding it’s a song about Polaroids. You’re missing so much.

edit: I’m not sniping anyone for taking these tests for fun or having an interest in them. There are entire forum and communities and tumblrs quite seriously dedicated to MBTI and labeling everything and everyone, and that’s what I find frustrating.

Anonymous asked: Not that anon, but MBTI is a lot less ultra-deterministic "you're this and nothing else" than you're making it seem.

Nothing against the test itself, but the culture surrounding it (and stuff like those introvert-pandering articles) seems full of vanity and determinism to me. What ever “type” I am, I don’t want to know, and I hope it’s not the same in five years.

Mine is definitely “human soul reduced to pokemon stat”

joedegeorge asked: I'm watching Fast and the Furious for the first time on TV. Do you think you are more like Vin Diesel or the Undercover Cop?

WEB PRESENCE EXPOSED AS FORGERY

Anonymous asked: There have been so many times when a male content creator on the Internet is very admirable and inspiring and then he comes out with misogynistic remarks/harassing fans/rape jokes and it just feels like this is happening over and over again. Thank you for never being part of this trend.

Shitty male creators is nothing new. Young internet communities have a great emphasis on the inspiring, educational and feminist, and personalities who espouse those things, but this doesn’t filter out abusers from rising to prominence, because they are very good at putting on masks.
What’s new is the ease with which victims can now come forward and have their stories heard and considered. Celebrate that.
