How much do you think people are tied down by their nature and what do you think it is? To me, human nature can be boiled down to a few thing: prioritizing self-interest, duplicitous, self-justification, craving validation, pushing others down to uplift themself at every opportunity and taking the path of least resistance
These are the things I think people are naturally inclined to do when they're left to their own devices. While people can occasionally override these core behaviors, few people can do so consistently. The majority of people will always follow their nature. Those who don't either compensate for their restraint through other forms of hedonism(self-righteousness), or are actually committed to their own ideal. How hard do you think it is for somebody to be the latter? Can anybody do it, or are people only born able to do it?

Nah, I never said humans were dumb or couldn't cooperate. We keep chugging along even if we can't help but keep making the same mistakes and falling prey to the same short-comings over and over again.

How has your personality changed over time? A couple of years ago, I took what was probably the most accurate personality test I ever came across. Today I found the same test and the results were a bit worrying.
http://www.seemypersonality.com/#q1
First, here's my first report.
>Your Personality Type is The Artisan (RICGS) Artisans are emotionally reactive, which means that they experience their emotions strongly and can be very passionate., however also have a higher tendency to experience emotions such as anxiety, anger and depression. Due to their independence and reserve, sometimes the Artisan can be perceived as arrogant or unfriendly, however this is merely because they don't require the same level of social stimulation or interaction that others may seek. The Artisan generally prefers fact over fiction and security and stability over ambiguity and disorder. Sticking with convention and familiar routines is generally best. With a healthy skepticism of the motives of others, and a belief in justice and being self made, sometimes the Artisan can come across as guarded or intimidating. However the Artisan has a refreshing impulsiveness about them, they tend to dislike too many rules and regulations and can be casual and whimsical.
>You often resist any cravings or urges that you have, but sometimes you give in, however you experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You prefer dealing with either people or things rather than ideas. You regard intellectual exercises as a waste of your time. You are willing to take credit for good things that you do but you don't often talk yourself up much, however you believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. You are guarded in new relationships and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth about yourself.
>You are a reasonably organized person and like to have a certain amount of routine in your life.
>You are generally calm, although some situations can make you feel anxious or tense. You do not usually get angry too easily but some things can annoy you. Mostly your emotions are on an even keel and you do not get depressed easily. You are not genPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>You mostly assume that people are honest and fair, however you are wary and hold back from trusting people completely. You believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. You are guarded in new relationships and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth about yourself. You do not particularly like helping other people. Requests for help feel like an imposition on your time. You are not adverse to confrontation and will sometimes even intimidate others to get your own way. You are not affected strongly by human suffering, priding yourself on making objective judgements based on reason. You are more concerned with truth and impartial justice than with mercy.
>Often you do not feel effective, and may have a sense that you are not in control of your life. You are a reasonably organized person and like to have a certain amount of routine in your life. You find contracts, rules, and regulations overly confining and are sometimes seen as unreliable or even irresponsible by others. You are content to get by with a minimal amount of work, and might be seen by others as lazy. You have a reasonable amount of will-power and are able to follow through on tasks that you feel you need to complete. You can be distracted however and have been known to procrastinate. You are not an overly cautious person. You will think about alternatives and consequences but make up your mind fairly quickly.
Here's the more recent report.
>Your Personality Type is The Designer (RIOGS) Designers are emotionally reactive, which means that they experience their emotions strongly and can be very passionate., however also have a higher tendency to experience emotions such as anxiety, anger and depression. Due to their independence and reserve, sometimes the Designer can be perceived as arrogant or unfriendly, however this is merely because they don't require the same level of social stimulation or interaction that others may seek. The Designer enjoys a good balance between the real world and fantasy, they are mostly aware of and in touch with their emotions.

>Often you find the real world is too plain and ordinary for your liking, and you use fantasy as a way of creating a richer, more interesting world for yourself. You are reasonably interested in the arts but are not totally absorbed by them. Generally you are not considered to be an emotional person, however you are aware of and in touch with your emotions. You can tend to feel uncomfortable with change. As a person who is open-minded to new and unusual ideas, you love to play with and think about ideas. You also like to debate intellectual issues and often enjoy riddles, puzzles and brain teasers. Often you exhibit a readiness to challenge authority, convention, and traditional values. Sometimes you feel a certain degree of hostility toward rules and perhaps even enjoy ambiguity.
>You generally see others as selfish, devious, and sometimes potentially dangerous. You believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. You are guarded in new relationships and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth about yourself. You do not particularly like helping other people. Requests for help feel like an imposition on your time. You do not enjoy confrontation, but you will stand up for yourself or push your point if you feel it is important. You feel superior to those around you and sometimes tend to be seen as arrogant by other people. You are not affected strongly by human suffering, priding yourself on making objective judgments based on reason. You are more concerned with truth and impartial justice than with mercy.
This is pretty strange because I've actually become much better at talking to others and getting work done diligently. I also have a way thicker skin. Maybe I've become more honest with myself? Either that or I'm going crazy and getting better at hiding it.

My mood depends a lot on the the weather, time of day and season.
Time of day
Early morning is my favorite; it makes me feel fresh and clean, especially during the Summer. Something about waking up before most people, when the air is crisp, makes me blissful. Sunset somehow always depresses me. The sun slowly dipping into an orange haze reminds me that the day is coming to a close and that time has passed. The changing of seasons has a similar effect on me, but a summer sunset always feels the worst. Once night arrives I feel fine.
Weather
I love cloudy weather because it masks the time of day. You don't feel the slow, ceaseless crawl of time when it always looks the same outside. I also love rain and every type of storm. Hurricanes, blizzards, typhoons, they're all exhilarating. Compared to the daily monotony, they feel like an event. Sometimes I like to fantasize about massive, four story tall floods.
Season
Fall feels melancholic. Seeing the world slowly decay into bareness isn't pretty to me; Halloween is great though. Winter makes me feel tired and sort of hallow. There's some nice things about it too. Spring kind of puts me in a panic. For whatever reason, when the temperature outside rises above a certain point, it makes my thoughts a bit hazy and erratic, this just becomes more intense in Summer.
How does weather affect you? Do you notice anything similar?

i love early morning, night, and generally sunset/sunrise. i hate hot weather and live somewhere where it's constantly hot. hot weather makes me physically sick and i cant stand it but cant really do much about this situation because im a poorfag. it also sucks that where i live we dont get "fall" or "winter" either, just more mild summer year long.

The hotter and drier, the better I feel. I love being at the beach or in the forest during a hot dry Australian summer day.

I used to get fairly bad seasonal affective depression, but that was when I was more depressed across the board. Now I'm just mildly annoyed when it's cold, dark, or wet.

I wish I had the power to control the weather. My concentration and mood skyrocket once it rains softly and the cool air during the summer feels nice on top of this. It kinda reminds me of playing minecraft during the nights in the early 10s. I wish half of the summer days could be replaced with rain.

This is a thread for posting all the weird experiments that you think of. Here's one that I've been thinking about. A child(6-9) with few preconceived notions is given two pigs (that look similar) to raise. One as a pet, and the other as food. The way they are raised is different. The pet is kept healthy and lean while the food is fattened up. The pet has a collar with a p on it, and the food has a collar with an s on it(this part is just an arbitrary way to distinguish them from the start so it could be anything). After the pigs are fully matured, the child watches the pig raised for food be slaughtered and then eats it. What do you think their general impression of pigs would be after? (I know it's a bit messed up, but it's just pretend).

Meat's meat and a man's gotta eat.

>>19010
I think as long as they knew that this pig was food from the beginning he wouldn't care. Kids learn what is right from their enviroments, so if false seperations - e.g. "That's not a pig, that's pork", "that's not a girl, that's my sister", "I'm not like them, I won't die" etcetera - are forged early then they stay (on an emotional level rather than a logical one).

>>19011
A man's gotta eat, but is meat the right treat? Don't answer that, wrong thread.

I don't even know what kind of meme is this. This imageboard is slow as fuck, and practically a walking body. Then some heat developed on the yndd board and everybody is losing its shit over it. Even sei said to tone it down, over literally nothing. And you have this shefedora complaining about him not being censoring enough.

What's the deal with this site? It's even more of a safespace than tumblr at this point.

I feel like what you guys want is just a board of Yes-Men that won't even dare to raise their tone even a bit.

Social interactions=//=Society

Just that makes your whole tryhard dishonest wall of text worthless.

I was talking about social interactions and treating them as such, as in how capable you are of interactions, societal problems, politics and which race commits more crimes is a completely different thing.

You changed your script by talking about why the crime rates matter, and accuse me of doing the same thing, do you want to be racist that badly?

This isn't the place for that, whatever you do, please struggle a lot, try very hard, in the end of the day that is the truth and won't change, you still lose friendo.

Alright you seem to be having some difficulties following this conversation. I'll walk you through it.
You implied it wasn't acceptable to be racist since it would be having the same level of reasoning for social interaction as a donkey.
Then I showed you that it is not only acceptable, but a good thing since it can statistically save your life due to current day crime statistics.
Then you started to try to move the goalpost and focus the debate on whether I was refering to society, social situations or whatever.
Then you had a mental breakdown and kept ignoring everything else and declared every other argument worthless because in your little brain you're pretending it still was unclear whether I was refering to social interations, society, or whatever. As if that was relevant to the debate of the validity of racism as a whole.
Keep up the strawman.

Lock this thread please. The creation of this thread was already pointless as it is (and it's on the wrong board), I haven't seen OP reply in a while & these pointless unhealthy arguments that end in nothing good are spawning up despite the original reasoning behind these threads presumably being solved under the new owner. Yes, the board has gotten some tumors there and there but chemo was thankfully applied, end of the story. Just please don't spread more stuff when the issue was already discussed and (solved).
