>>718779544 now you made me think my stats are too high. i do end up making alot of friends, but i also tend to be polarizing. (either you like me even though im awkward, or you want nothing to do with me) Probably because i use words like nigger in public conversations.
>>718779869 You and my girlfriend both haha! I live in the blackest part of Florida and we share dank memes in the car while I drive. I have to keep the windows rolled up or I get death glares because she plays moon man. What are your hobbies? What's the one thing you would change about yourself and what's the one thing you would never change about yourself?
>>718780076 Id probably bump up my social skills, i want to be able to read other people better and know when and how to start a conversation or when to just give. as far as what wouldn't i change probably my passion or empathy, those i feel define me more than the other stats.
>>718780509 Pretty decent , thanks. Having a bit of roomate drama which is irritating, but its nothing extreme. Just fucking around on 4chan until i fall asleep. Got a job interview in the morning , so hopefully it wont be long. Got plat on overwatch finally. Overall a pretty good day. How about yourself
>>718780546 Have you tried using those to your advantage when it comes to social performance? You seem really nice, and I think by focusing more on where they take the conversation rather than what you say, you could greatly improve that skill. There are great books on social engineering, but some are bullshit. In my personal experience, I find that asking open ended questions after I respond with a short comparison to myself usually leads to the person being happier overall and, more often than not, they take the reigns and all you have to do is steer. What are your hobbies or interests?
>>718780690 So far it's been hectic but decent overall. I've been studying like a mad man for a few weeks, and this week I signed up for a subscription to a website that makes studying easier. How is overwatch by the way? I've heard mixed reviews but never mustered up the courage to try it. Also, what are your favorite videos to come across on YouTube?
>>71878090 videogames, anime and cartoons, but i also like moderate excising and martial arts. I feel like when i mention these things tho im made out to look weird. so i dont mention theme in social media or when i first meet someone cuz then i feel like they get the wrong impression of me,
>>718781052 What are you studying? I like overwatch quite a bit. Its easier to get into and keep playing than traditional mobas, and im enjoying the ranked climb. Ive been pretty shit in fps games in the past, so it's been fun playing a lot and being able to tell im getting better.
>>718780904 >videogames, anime and cartoons, but i also like moderate excising and martial arts. I feel like when i mention these things tho im made out to look weird. so i dont mention theme in social media or when i first meet someone cuz then i feel like they get the wrong impression of me.
well, people rating themselves 8-10 in any area is pretty ballsy, especially considering the dunning kruger effect. in the intelligence section people ITT have rated themselves an average of 6 (5.92 rounding up), which shouldn't be the case, unless one wants to say that 4chan users are more intelligent than average (which I kinda doubt tbh). I few people even rated themselves 9/10?! I think people who have done so likely have very little understanding of what being in the top 10% of intelligence is like.
i rated myself 8/10 in luck because I think that does accurately represent, say, what social class i was born into, the lack of any birth defects, the fact that my upbringing has 'gone according to plan' in basically every sense...
TL;DR I think people tend to overestimate + should be able to justify their stats other than, "o well im kinda good at high school math," and in absence of much evidence, restrict estimates to plus or minus 1 around average.
>>718781272 Haha I like that, it would seem so wouldn't it? I put mine so low because even though my life is somewhat well off, I just don't seem to have the best luck overall. How's your night by the way? Did you fill out a chart?
>>718781272 >>718781394 I feel like luck should be how you were raised to be honest. Growing up poor in Chicago could be a 0 and growing up rich in Los Angeles could be a 10 for instance.
I just left mine at average because it's such and odd thing to have on a list of life standings. All it really does is leave people who were in actuality pretty well off an excuse for every below-average score they gave themselves and self-gratification for every above-average score they gave themselves.
>>718781314 Hqha yeah, some people here apparently th8nk quite highly of themselves. I compared stats to people i know, and my own experiences. I gave myself an 8 in charisma based off of what people have told me about myself. heres no overall standard to compare to, so individual results here can vary quite a bit. Intelligence is easier to compare , though.
>>718781199 >Comedy. I'm a smart-ass whenever I'm given an opportunity, to the point where I'll accidentally say things before thinking them through, and have more trouble being honest than anybody close to me will ever know. It's probably why I like 4chan so much.
>>718778093 Funny how everyone here rates their intelligence a high... Guess you have to be pretty fucking bright to ask online why you dont have friends or are still a virgin. Or masturbate to cartoon porn about mother son incest...
>>718781307 Oh cool, I enjoy a lot of that stuff too. People usually don't judge as much as you think they do. When it comes to a first impression, asking questions about someone's interests usually make you look interested rather than awkward. The three hardest words for people to say are "I don't know". If you can get that out of the way and focus more on their likes and ask questions if you don't know how something works, then you should be gold n in their eyes. I apologize for any grammatical errors that may be present. It's about 6 am here and I'm still studying lol.
>>718781818 these look like the stats from FDR, health so low that he had to be pushed around in a wheele chair , but charismatic and smart enough to be elected prez. but gave zero shits about rounding up the japs in camps and blowing up their cities
>>718782088 I doubt they rated it that way because of their religion. They probably based it that way because of their "Openmindedness or connection to non-material world" which can mean a billion things in this day and age. Someone who grew up in Hitchcaw, Tennessee might give themselves a 10 for not hating gay people so much.
>>718781634 Thats awesome. Ive been interested in IT/networking stuff since highschool, but ive tried college a couple times now, and i just cant seem to accomplish anything. Doesn't help that the only college around is pretty shit.
>>718782100 there are more important things than intelligence and appearance. for example they might have not achieved anything in their life, be lazy and undisciplined, be completely socially autistic or all of the above.
>>718781736 I see, that would be an accurate indicator and a fair one too. Though I would keep mine at one due to various instances in my childhood that really didn't allow me opportunities until I was older, and some others that I still have issues with today. Was your childhood decent? What's your favorite memory from when you were young?
>>718782263 Very true. >>718782393 I rated mine average to kind of even it out. I dont have a religion i worship, but ive had some dreams and experiences that have changed me spiritually. Ive realized it doesnt actually affect my life outside my own head in any way though.
>>718781876 Haha yeah there's a decent vibe on 4chan when it comes to letting loose, there are just some people who take it too far lol. What's your favorite thing about /b/ and about how long have you been browsing?
>>718782088 im agnostic and i gave myself a 6 because i often contemplate what it means to be sentient, and the connotations of the words good and evil. also being open to the pssibility that there is a god and that there isnt one, and how the universe works in both cases. like a schrodinger's Christ.
A year ago I would have rated myself a 9 in appearance and intelligence but a 3 in confidence. Personally, it's because I used to be an autistic kid addicted to 4chan and OSRS, like most of you. However, I lost 130lbs and overcame my social anxiety by facing my fears and becoming a bartender. That's just me, though; everyone has their reasons.
Actually, if you rated yourself lowly in confidence but highly in intelligence/appearance, you should really start using your intelligence as a way to take advantage of your appearance to boost your confidence. Reflecting on where my unconfidence came from and using conscious decisions to overcome it is what saved me.
>>718781314 i guess i might have underrated myself in intelligence. i'm in the top 5% according to the iq jew, but i rated myself 7/10 because i'm not terribly knowledgeable and i didn't think it was referring to percentiles as an iq of 120 doesn't seem exceptionally high to me
>>718782351 Same here but I live by the rule, "don't let school get in the way of your education." I learn a lot from mentors, books, and hands on projects, either at work or at home. It's very rewarding and I could try to point you in the right direction or share resources if you want. Email me at [email protected] if you'd like.
>>718782648 Interesting. I think i understand what you mean, at least at a basic level. My basic belief at this point, is that the universe is god. Theres a lot more to it though, its hard to explain. Ive never really written about it, or heard it explained. Just a realization ive come to.
>>718782510 My childhood was pretty average for a military kid. I moved around a lot until my parents got divorced, settled down in the city after a couple transient years, and haven't moved out-of-state since I was six (I'm 18 now). We always had enough money for rent, though I found out recently that my mother filed for bankruptcy at one point after she divorced out of her second marriage. I went to public school until 7th grade, when my mom pulled me out to do online school because I was being bullied, so I didn't do a lot of socializing for the past 5 or 6 years. Now I'm going to a two-year college using my father's GI bill.
I'd rate that a 5 if Luck were replaced with Upbringing. I had plenty of opportunity to do well, but it wasn't handed to me either.
As for a favorite memory, I don't really have one. Good memories don't stick in my head as well as bad ones.
>>718783091 Ahh man I could never get in to Linux. What language do you use to code? I've been addicted to Java but I know I need to spread out pretty soon haha. I do have a steam but I'm not inclined to post it on 4chan, thank you for your offer, though
>>718783108 I'm overweight but lost about 50 lbs in about a year without sticking to my diet super hard, and my nutrition is dildos. It's literally just my internals are fucking fantastic. Which is surprising, given how I mistreat my body.
>>718782873 Thats a good rule. I dont think i have the mental discipline or book smarts to train myself at this point though, unfortunately. Ive been gaining more confidence and determination lately though, so well see what happens! Thanks for the offer
>>718782620 I can't really say I have a favorite thing to do, I'll just find a thread and watch it unfold. Less often I'll find a more involved thread like this one and spend my time there. I've been using 4chan for maybe a year now.
>>718783229 Fair enough lol, I usually stick to C or Python if I'm writing network utilities, or PHP if I'm trying to help someone with backend stuff. What do you write in Java? My bro writes in that but he enjoys making plugins for Minecraft.
>>718783407 I'm going into computer science because I don't really have a passion and it seemed pretty in line with my life-style. My dad has worked infantry in the Army since he was 19 and retires next year at 45 as a sergeant major.
>>718783387 You probably put too much emphasis on relationships and scare girls away. If that's true, don't view it as a negative. You'll meet someone who's the same way and create a beautiful connection with one another. People who don't put so much emphasis on relationships will never be able to create as strong a bond as you will. Not many people are like that so it'll be hard; some will even tell you everything you want to hear to take advantage of you. You'll learn from it, but you'll find what you're looking for eventually. I know I have.
>>718783781 Hello, >>718780616 here. If you think about it, a large percentage of the 4chan user base falls under the INTJ personality type, and therefore have above-average intelligence. It's the type of place 4chan is; no one with an average IQ without autism would find 4chan interesting. They'd get bored and leave.
Not to say there aren't any low intelligence 4chan users; they probably just have nothing else to do with their lives.
>>718783903 I'm not really certain. I don't even take my first actual "Computer Science" class until spring. I've enjoyed what little programming I've done, but I also haven't done very much, so I can't really claim to have a working knowledge of any programming language.
I'm not a very attractive person, I don't have great social skills, but I'm pretty creative, I'm smart, even if I doubt myself.
I've seriously cried because a tree behind my old house got cut down, because I thought about how much it must suck to be cut down once you stop being useful, then I thought about my life and shit just went down hill.
>>718784065 You can't truly believe that because you're a certain combination of introverted and whatnot, that gives you a higher intelligence. That's part of personality, not necessarily intelligence. I know plenty more people who are extroverted and very intelligent than those who are introverted and very intelligent. Either way, though, no matter what some personality test tells you, we're all just humans, and seeing how most people act on 4chan, I wouldn't believe that everyone here is of that low percent of 4chan that aren't general retards - a lot of it is just too high of self-esteem.
>>718784489 Lmao, I do talk to a nearly even amount of introverted and extroverted people, don't worry. Most of the introverts just aren't too bright. I'm gonna stop writing essays though, I was here to fap anyways.
>>718784258 >>718784065 Basing your intelligence on a personality test that no modern psychologist would take seriously makes no sense at all. Even if the test was legitimate, your personality doesn't define your intelligence as a whole.
I also have no clue what you mean when you say that you'd need to be intelligent to enjoy 4chan. Maybe if this were /v/ or something where people actually talk and debate, I'd agree that you couldn't enjoy it if you actually had a 100% certifiable mental disorder. The majority is just people ranting about random shit, ESPECIALLY on /b/.
>>718784362 This. Im a fairly normal person. Sure, i have some issues and quirks, but i function outside of the internet pretty well. There are some really strange/ill people here, but just as many regular ones.
>>718784581 Doesn't help that I'm a walking contradiction. For example. I'm emotionally passionate on a good day, and all kinds of dead inside on a not so good one. I don't know how to rate "Hopeful Depressed person" on that scale.
>>718784608 Being smarter than 85% of the people you meet is not a very high percentage I am smarter than at least 98.8% of people I meet, but the others are same level of intelligence as me just about, and I can actually learn stuff from them.
>>718784719 I do what I can thrifting. I was actually stepped aside in public before and someone told me they always see me around and they just wanted to tell me they think I dress great so that's cool. Or he could've just wanted to fuck me. I'll never know.
I don't think being introverted makes you more intelligent. It just makes it so you're more likely to be at home on 4chan than out with friends. I see what you're saying, though, and I think it's because there are different types of intelligence. An INTJ will have a different type of intelligence than an ESFP. However, it's pretty much confirmed that INTJs generally have a higher average intelligence quotient than many of the other personality types.
The reason for that, I think, is because we have only recently started researching different forms of intelligence. For example, an INTJ would be lacking the interpersonal intelligence that would come so naturally to an ESFP.
>>718784786 I was being pretty generous with that number, like you it probably is in the higher 90s depending on how depressed I am, wish I was more creative but meh, and yeah I do learn from people occasionally, just not very often at all unless they're above a 130 iq :P
>>718784752 I'd say you'd rate at least a 5 or 6. Almost anyone feels "depressed" at least half the time. Nobody's actually considered clinically depressed unless they've felt sadness and/or a lack of interest in anything in their life for a period of 16 days or longer without break.
>>718784956 Well, I first tried to kill myself or wanted to around grade school. 3rd -5th range. I'm certifiably depressed and see a therapist biweekly. I've been to therapy of some form or another since I've been alive, and I've tried damn near every class of drug there is to treat it.
For your second point, I think I generalized a bit. I don't think you need to be intelligent to enjoy 4chan, but you'll be more likely to get something from it than someone who has average intelligence, isn't remotely autistic and had a relatively normal upbringing. Just because you're intelligent doesn't mean you're not going to post random shit. Those same people ranting about random shit probably have above-average intelligence and a mental disorder to accompany it.

>>718785649 My boyfriend is beautiful. Face is literally 10/10 I don't even know how I managed to land him. Girls flock to him. Yet he choose me. And it is amazing. So definitely the latter. So maybe your theory is right?
I know the exact reason why I seek attention and it's because I never had a father figure or male role model so I seek attention from men. Also I was sexual abused multiple times. Idk if that plays a role.
>>718785970 No and yes? I've had sex (that was consensual) with two guys my whole life but that's only because I'm in a 3 year monogamous relationship and I'm only 18. ... I get super horny frequently and have a lot of weird fetishes and ones that you would probably consider extremely slutty so I don't know. I have sex 1-3 times a day and have been for the past 3 years. Yes?
>>718785909 >Health I'm skinny as hell, never work out, never eat healthy i'm practically skin and bone. >Strength None >Stamina None >Intelligence i've passed middleschool and highschool in pre-ap classes; second year in medical college to become a pharmacist. >Perception I'm not around anyone most of the time so without any social distractions it's easy to see when something is new or out of the norm. >Creativity I've taken 2 2d art classes in highschool, not sure if that counts as my creativity level... >Charisma Well apparently my charisma is shit because i have no friends. >Social skills if someone actually approaches me and starts a conversation i can hold a convo and such; i can't talk to other people first though. >Confidence Actually, i'm kinda confident about my looks but that's aabout it. >Face Ehh, not too bad, not very good >body Even though i'm fairly skinny i'm not fat or anything, and i'm 6" >Style I pick clothing that doesn't stand out much. >Humor Personally i think my humor is great, and that's the only good thing i have going for me; although some of it is dark and not many people like that. >empathy i don't care for others >Spirtuality I'm athiest >Disipline idk >Luck nope
>>718786795 I think I simply understand that my entire life and everything in it has been brilliant luck and I'm ultimately worthless as an individual, for I didn't put any effort into achieveing all my luxuries, and I have a lot. :)
>>718786573 Yeah actually. We're really honest with each other. He hates it for obvious reasons and says he'd rather keep me precious to himself but ultimately as long as I'm not actually cheating on him it's ok he just doesn't want to hear about it. And lectured me about how unhealthy it is.
>>718786971 I'm the femanon who's been posting in the thread. Thought I'd say that because you guys value the rare female opinion. You look super fucking awkward and you have crazy eyes in the pic. Just relax. Haircut is super dated but you're not an unattractive guy.
>>718786933 Sounds about right. Those fetishes aren't all that unheard of on the scale. You get the validation through sex. But because that's what your brain decided the abuse was, or because your brain couldn't handle it and needs it to be normal?
>>718787329 That's a given. There's a specific reason (or multiple), though. Figure out your specific reason. If reacting to that in that way is ok with you, then by all means, keep on keeping on. If you find that as something that you don't like, maybe consider if doing it is worth knowing why you are.
>>718787283 My circumstances are a bit silly. You see, everyone around me works their butts off and are generally good people. Friends, family. Everyone's great. And then you have me. The guy who sits around, does nothing, but somehow has a car, computer, his own room, etc. I'm not being dramatic either, I have no job and I don't go to school. It's a potent dose of reality when you see everyone around you be so amazing, and yourself being so mediocre. It's good to move away from delusions, though. I appreciate my understanding of myself.
