Survey - Diplomacy boardgame
I was just wondering... 100 % of us play on webDiplomacy.net. But how many of us have the boardgame, with the wooden blocks for the armies and boats... ?

"Trump pulls out" thread innuendo masked as title
The thread regarding trump leaving the Paris accords. Could be viewed very much as a slighted innuendo of Trumps past. He has been accused of some sketchy things. Discuss.

Rap and Hip Hop promote better capitalist values than Country or Rock
Rims, Gold Chains, Fancy Cars, Implants, Gold Teeth, Swimming Pools, Palm Trees, Mansions, "Ive made it culture", "Look at me". Are values pure to American capitalism and more purely espouse what America is.

Diplomacy and MBTI
I'm curious, what Myers-Briggs (MBTI) personality types do Diplomacy players have? Post your type here!

Technostar (251 D)
21 May 17 UTC
For those of you who don't know, MBTI categorizes people into 16 types with a 4-letter acronym (Extroversion vs. Introversion, iNtuition vs. Sensing, Thinking vs. Feeling, Judging vs. Percieving). These are very general but give a general idea of someone's traits. If you haven't taken an MBTI test before, take one at 16personalities.com

My type is ENTP.

I think I've been INTJ, ENTJ and ... ENTP? I can check later if it's indeed ENTP.
I took the tests when I was a lone and bored high schooler, when I started doing business (still high school I believe) and when I found the joy in studying a great study at university, respectively.

I think if I would take the test several times in a row, I would get a consistent result, but over time there's definitely variation in my self-image, it seems.

I have the two books, Please Understand Me and Please Understand Me II. Dramatic titles for very logical and analytical books. I am not surprised that many of us are NTs(also called Prometheans). I've let many of my friends the test, and even though my type, INTJ is only 1.5 percent of the population, many of my friends are that type also.

I think it's important to keep in mind that it is effectively about self-image. I think there might be a substantial difference between the amount of real INTJs and the amount of people who fill in the questions according to an INTJ image they have of themselves.

Been so long since I've taken one of these, I had to go do it all over again. I got ISTP, but it could also be INTP, the S and N were a near 50/50 split.

@Oztra: Not at all. It can be useful to consciously think about your characteristics, strengths and weaknesses so you can decide for yourself how you're going to achieve certain things in life, for instance.
Also people are naturally interested in finding out more about themselves.

ISTP-T
I took this test a while ago and got the same think so it's definitely right, and it fits me pretty well.
I liked that I had a high percentage for "observant" and "introverted" but my percentage for "turbulent identity" was just below 90%
How do you all view turbulent identities? In a good or bad light?

INTP/INTJ split

Hard to believe Gen Lee is ISFP. I wouldn't think Diplomacy would do too well with any "F" types. F-types favor emotion to make decisions more than logic/reasoning, which seems like F-types would be extremely vulnerable to manipulation in Diplomacy leading to poor outcomes for them.
Jeff Kuta (2066 D)
24 May 17 UTC
I wonder if F-types are relatively better off in face-to-face games.
steephie22 (182 D (S))
26 May 17 UTC
Perhaps F-types also better understand what their fellow players want to hear emotionally.

"The validity (statistical validity and test validity) of the MBTI as a psychometric instrument has been the subject of much criticism."

i'm just going to leave this here.

Criticism includes things like "No evidence for dichotomies"

Basically, i'm calling bullshit on this whole system. Like horoscopes and IQ tests...
