>>44887381 I don't really know, since it would be next to impossible to gauge my own mental stats. I can be pretty gullible, but I use critical thinking in my career. I like to learn and seek words of wisdom and apply them, but I hardly generate wisdom that I specifically thought up, though I suppose learning lessons that way and realizing that it doesn't matter where good advice originated could be wise. My mental stats probably vary from day to day as well. I just don't know anymore, Anon.
>>44888290 I always hated this logic, that effect equals causation. If I scored into MENSA, and somebody asks me if I'm intelligent, and I reply positively, my intelligence doesn't plummet. Some fool who responds positively should mean that the worlds smartest or wisest people have to try and pretend they aren't dedicating their life towards spreading wisdom or intellectual pursuits.
Intuitive perception of cause and effect is how I translate wisdom into something I can understand though.
Intelligence would understand things seen with Wisdom logically and know the 'math' behind it. Charisma would be the cousin of Wisdom, where high Wisdom could see through intuitively(sub-consciously picking up tells,gut-feeling), Intellect could see through by means of analysis(better not have a tell).
Constitution barely affects anything and it's okay to make it your dump stat. Don't feed the trolls. Grow up, but that doesn't mean you have to grow away. Eat healthy, not just tasty. Listen to other people even if they're stupid. They still might point something out you never thought of. Gather knowledge and perspective from others. Don't be a dick, everyone hates dicks. Don't be afraid to like something everyone else dislikes, as long as you actually think critically about what you're doing. Thinking for yourself is better than following the herd blindly. Be who you really want to be. You can manage it. Be friendly to people where you can. They deserve it as much as you do.
>>44888479 >>44888451 I got you, bro. However, I think Perception of cause and effect is to wisdom what memory is to intelligence. I don't think it defines it, but is part of it that is applied as a function in-game. >"Wisdom or sapience is the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight"
So it's not just critical thinking, but the application of it and intelligence.
Wisdom for the DMs of the world- Don't be annoyed that your players didn't get the clues or solve the puzzle or understand what you were trying to tell them. Don't blame them for not getting something. Always try to think of ways you could have communicated better. Try to improve. If you think about it that way, next time you write up a puzzle you'll be thinking in that way too. You'll come up with better adventures and solveable challenges, as well as communicate better overall.
Someone told me that years ago here on /tg/ and it was the best dm advice I've ever heard. They phrased it a bit better, but it's basically "what could you have done differently?" Not to say it's 'your fault' if they don't get it, just that grumbling about dumb players doesn't *help*.
Don't ever compromise when it comes to player selection. -Large groups are hard to manage. If you already have five-six players and someone wants to bring their roommate, politely decline. -If someone hates roleplaying and prefers tactical combat and dungeon crawling, for god's sake don't let them into an L5R or WoD game. The reverse holds true if you're looking to run a casual game where you bash some orcs with your friends. -You know those girls who revel in being the token geek grrrl? All males friends, loves attention? Don't invite more than one into a game. It ain't pretty.
>>44887381 A Fedora is only proper gentleman attire if you actually dress up. Your stained sonic the hedgehog t-shirt ruins everything else you wear it with, fedoras included. Taking some time to cure your appearence is fundamental to live in society and anyone Who says the opposite and calls you superficial for doing so is a smelly uncouth barbarian you should leave to the lions at the Colosseum.
