This is a discussion on Do you 'not post' to conserve your THANK:POST ratio? within the INTP Forum - The Thinkers forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by Cheveyo I am way too self-centered to not post. People must hear my opinions. Type louder....
I'd really prefer it if only yourself had access to your own ratio, and the name of the thankers wasn't shown.
It's a nice tool to induce both quality exigent posting (though a bit redundant for most INTPs) and limit variety, creativity and risk-taking.
And a passive way to "express" yourself ("I'm just going to thank someone who disagrees with this person instead of posting and explaining why").
We need more thank options :
- I agree with you.
- Fun post.
- You posted the joke I thought of, I hate you and time zones too.
- I'm Zombie Jesus trying to mess with your head.
- I disagree with you but that was interesting.
- Very smart and well-said, but you made a typo. I can't thank that thing.
- Ho, so that's what this "Thank" button does.
You'd be surprised how much shit I could have posted if I'd been a bit more quick pressing the submit button. The only thing I watch out for is to not repeat what others have said, particularly if I find a post that expresses something in a much more elequent way than I ever could. In that case I just thank. So I'm in the passive expression phase as Arusnem put it, in fact I've thanked more times than I've received.
As for the funny picture syndrome...guilty.
Everyone in this thread should thank every post in this thread! Then not posting would be detrimental to your ratio!
P.S couldn't have done it without you (takes bow to applause)
