True Boredom

sem11:

Good job, Telltale Games. You made me sob like a baby. I had never cried that much over a choice in a video game, or over a game, for that matter. “No Going Back” pulls your heartstrings and rips them apart. Mass Effect 3 barely got a tear out of me, but it was close; Bioshock Infinite made me cry a little out of shock; these guys from Telltale managed to make me straight up sob over a character. That is a sign of effective, immersing storytelling. Such a great episode.

Expect to see them on a list of most hated video game characters:

the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.

I’ve told people this for years: “Leaving the nest” when you’re 18, assuming it’s under safe and healthy circumstances, is a distinctively white middle class American ideal that doesn’t apply to much of the world, let alone much of America. If you have the chance to leave home of your own volition with the ability to support yourself, great, but most people don’t. We just don’t.

Debunking the Myers-Briggs personality test

tbskyen:

i-want-a-callisto:

"Several analyses have shown the test is totally ineffective at predicting people’s success in various jobs, and that about half of the people who take it twice get different results each time," Stromberg writes.

Stromberg says one of the key flaws to the test is that it relies on “limited binaries”. Most humans, he says, fall along a spectrum and are not easily classified into opposite choices. People aren’t exclusively extroverts or introverts - and where they fall on the spectrum can fluctuate widely based on how they are feeling at the moment.

Personal favourite quote:

"It’s 2014. Thousands of professional psychologists have evaluated the century-old Myers-Briggs, found it to be inaccurate and arbitrary, and devised better systems for evaluating personality. Let’s stop using this outdated measure - which has about as much scientific validity as your astrological sign - and move on to something else.”

You apparently can’t reduce the inexpressible complexity of the human experience to four letters.

The Events in Ferguson will one day make a great movie for white people to feel guilty about and give an academy award to

and the story will revolve around a white journalist who ultimately realizes that wow, we’re all human

Bought one month after launch, our PS3 died suddenly today of massive internal failure, during an episode of Pokemon XY. Because it has survived so so long, we don’t feel empty. We were so fortunate it lasted so long. It’s statistically ridiculous. But I personally came to terms with the moment long ago, and was ready for it.
Despite appearances, our PS2 still functions. No parent should have to bury their child.
