I almost always go to the profile page of members who post interesting topics.

But it is easy to see who is really interested in the free exchange of ideas and who is not. For example, a profile page chock full of "Not Saying" shows a person not really interested in connecting with others.

And a member not interested enough in the "Big Issues" to choose at least a few signifies someone who only wants a soapbox and is not really interested in the views of others.

But one of the best giveaways is the name a member chooses for him/herself. Names can be divided into 5 types.

1. Regular names, often with numbers or extra letters
ethang5/Thomasnomas/K3yof5eth
2. Names of Grandeur, often how the member sees himself
Skepticalone/Barbarian/Godkiller
3. Mythic names, often with religious undertones
Krishnaknight/lightseeker/beyondtruth
4. Inside joke names, sometimes decipherable
Madcornishbiker/steelerfan2/Ithadtobeu
5. Nonsensical names, usually showing the lack of creativity in the member
7th477w/goobledyboo/xxx69

Atheists tend to prefer #2 and #4. Theists lean towards #1 and #3

#1's and 2'a tend to be the best for debate, #4 and #5 tend to be the worst.

There are of course, exceptions and aberrations.

Another thing, no real Christian would leave the religion question on his profile page as "not saying", and no one seriously looking for debate would answer the "looking for" with a "men" or "women". This isn't a dating site.

Members who use, in their siggy, quotes (of other members) they consider silly is really a cheap shot. No context, just the low blow every time they post. Weak.

But it is often amazing how apt some names are. After reading an idiotic post you look at the name and it's something like "sillyant" and you think, "Yeah, I can see it" or some vulgar idiot calling himself "thuggishloser". No surprise.

Each type has subgroups and a longtime poster can grow into another name type. Like "Thorshammer" becoming "daa-umm". But I've noticed that name changes usually are governed this way...

When they do change,
1's keep their names longest. 2's usually become 4's. 3's leave more often than change names, 4's usually become 5's and sometimes 1's.

5's never become 1's. 4's never become 3's. 3's on the rare occassions they stay and change, keep the same type. 2's never become 5's.

Which number type are you?

I think #2 and #3 and unnecessarily separated. The two latter example of #3 would easily qualify for #2, for instance.

#1's and 2'a tend to be the best for debate, #4 and #5 tend to be the worst.

I don't know, what do you think? You seem to have a good grasp on this assessment.

Not sure. At first glance I would appear to be a 1, but I chose my name as sort of science-fictiony name, for like a clone or a robot or a borg (like 7of9).

Inside my head while reading this post:

I wonder if "not saying" is listed often on my profile page. *Checks profile*

OMG it's on there 5 times!!! Wait...is that "chock full"?!

...Nah, I'm sure he meant WAY more than 5...maybe like those unreasonable people with 6 "not sayings"....jerks.

I've got nine. :( And on top of that, many of my interests say "nope." in lieu of listing anything. I thought that I was leaving those blank because (a) most of them are irrelevant to anything I'd ever discuss and (b) I'm trying to minimizing the bias people might have when reading what I write (favorable OR unfavorable). Oh, well.

Well shoot, no "big topics" and no deeply personal details in my profile - in fact, nothing. Loser!

I'm wondering, though, why that makes me any less open to the free exchange of ideas than someone who chooses to fill in every box?

Is it possible that people who do take the time and trouble to fill in every detail are the ones who like soapboxes - not the other way around, as you suggest?

Do you feel the need to walk around the street wearing a bunch of labels "Christian", "straight", "republican", "anti-abortion", etc etc etc?

If you want to know something about me, or my opinion on anything, just ask - THAT is how interaction happens.

Your looking to much into it I believe. When I joined , I didn't think I would be hanging around after a day or 2. So I gave myself this name with that in mind. I hate it. If I new I was going to like this site I would of picked a name like. Um , um , boatymcboatface.

1. Regular names, often with numbers or extra letters
ethang5/Thomasnomas/K3yof5eth
2. Names of Grandeur, often how the member sees himself
Skepticalone/Barbarian/Godkiller
3. Mythic names, often with religious undertones
Krishnaknight/lightseeker/beyondtruth
4. Inside joke names, sometimes decipherable
Madcornishbiker/steelerfan2/Ithadtobeu
5. Nonsensical names, usually showing the lack of creativity in the member

I think #2 and #3 and unnecessarily separated. The two latter example of #3 would easily qualify for #2, for instance.

True, because people are rarely one dimensional, and this is not meant to be a clinical diagnosis. But #2's carry a slight implication narcissism, while #3's see themselves as part of a noble/righteous cause and are rarely narcissistic. The difference is a big one in actual debate with each on the board.

Atheists tend to prefer #2 and #4. Theists lean towards #1 and #3

#1's and 2'a tend to be the best for debate, #4 and #5 tend to be the worst.

There are of course, exceptions and aberrations.

Another thing, no real Christian would leave the religion question on his profile page as "not saying", and no one seriously looking for debate would answer the "looking for" with a "men" or "women". This isn't a dating site.

Members who use, in their siggy, quotes (of other members) they consider silly is really a cheap shot. No context, just the low blow every time they post. Weak.

But it is often amazing how apt some names are. After reading an idiotic post you look at the name and it's something like "sillyant" and you think, "Yeah, I can see it" or some vulgar idiot calling himself "thuggishloser". No surprise.

Each type has subgroups and a longtime poster can grow into another name type. Like "Thorshammer" becoming "daa-umm". But I've noticed that name changes usually are governed this way...

When they do change,
1's keep their names longest. 2's usually become 4's. 3's leave more often than change names, 4's usually become 5's and sometimes 1's.

5's never become 1's. 4's never become 3's. 3's on the rare occassions they stay and change, keep the same type. 2's never become 5's.

Which number type are you?

I don't know, what do you think? You seem to have a good grasp on this assessment.

You are solidly a #2. But you lean slightly towards #1. What is a top contender for your name that you ultimately rejected? I'm guessing it was a #1.

Not sure. At first glance I would appear to be a 1, but I chose my name as sort of science-fictiony name, for like a clone or a robot or a borg (like 7of9).

You are a #1 with streaks of #4 mixed in.

Inside my head while reading this post:

I wonder if "not saying" is listed often on my profile page. *Checks profile*

OMG it's on there 5 times!!! Wait...is that "chock full"?!

...Nah, I'm sure he meant WAY more than 5...maybe like those unreasonable people with 6 "not sayings"....jerks.

Funny. :)

But I am aware people can change. For example, a member who joined years ago and was essentially a troll, grew and developed a fondness for debate and found he liked intellectually connecting with others. But it has not yet occurred to him that his profile page still bares the hallmarks of the guy he used to be, or has simply not gotten around to changing it. You didn't even remember if there were any on your profile page.

But generally, I think this is true, and the more recently the member joined, the more true it will be.

What is "chock full"?! Think of cans of sardines.

I've got nine. :( And on top of that, many of my interests say "nope." in lieu of listing anything. I thought that I was leaving those blank because (a) most of them are irrelevant to anything I'd ever discuss and (b) I'm trying to minimizing the bias people might have when reading what I write (favorable OR unfavorable). Oh, well.

That shows a rather low opinion of other people in general, in agreement with your being a #2, who tend to have elevated opinions of themselves. Which may be justified. You are one of the more intelligent posters on this board. None of the assessment types are necessarily negative within themselves.

;-P

You know the mist they spray on bees to calm them before taking their honey? The inside of your head needs that.

But Chaosism being a #2 is unusual. The word is from the root chaos, but narcissistic personalities desire order and control. (besides adoration) He (?) is one I would love to question about his worldview.

Well shoot, no "big topics" and no deeply personal details in my profile - in fact, nothing. Loser!

Ok.

I'm wondering, though, why that makes me any less open to the free exchange of ideas than someone who chooses to fill in every box?

Filling in the boxes is an exchange of ideas. You're telling us about yourself. Not filling in the boxes makes it more difficult for other members to know if you are the sort with whom they would like to exchange ideas.

Is it possible that people who do take the time and trouble to fill in every detail are the ones who like soapboxes - not the other way around, as you suggest?

No. But as I said, there are exceptions and aberrations in every bunch. Perhaps you are an exception.

Do you feel the need to walk around the street wearing a bunch of labels "Christian", "straight", "republican", "anti-abortion", etc etc etc?

No, but is the profile page akin to "walking around the street" to you? People come here (in theory) to interact. Why then would you keep who you are closed up?

If you want to know something about me, or my opinion on anything, just ask - THAT is how interaction happens.

Ok, so interaction with you always requires the other party asking you. I'll alert the creators of forum boards that the profile page is not needed.

Your looking to much into it I believe. When I joined , I didn't think I would be hanging around after a day or 2. So I gave myself this name with that in mind. I hate it. If I new I was going to like this site I would of picked a name like. Um , um , boatymcboatface.

lol. Honestly, I read this only AFTER I posted what I said about a poster changing. But you are a #2. What is unusual about you is that you are one of those with no undercurrent leanings. You are 100% a #2.

That is how I can be sure that you may have picked a different name, but it wouldn't have been boatymcboatface. Boatymcboatface is a #5. You can only be a #2.

I am not a number. I am a free man.
To quote Number 6.

A free man who quotes a number?

You are half a 4 and half a 5. People with equal parts of two consecutive numbers are twins. People with equal parts of two non-consecutive numbers are hybrids.

Hybrids are rare. Twins are rarer still.

But one of the best giveaways is the name a member chooses for him/herself. Names can be divided into 5 types.

1. Regular names, often with numbers or extra letters
ethang5/Thomasnomas/K3yof5eth
2. Names of Grandeur, often how the member sees himself
Skepticalone/Barbarian/Godkiller
3. Mythic names, often with religious undertones
Krishnaknight/lightseeker/beyondtruth
4. Inside joke names, sometimes decipherable
Madcornishbiker/steelerfan2/Ithadtobeu
5. Nonsensical names, usually showing the lack of creativity in the member

Atheists tend to prefer #2 and #4. Theists lean towards #1 and #3

#1's and 2'a tend to be the best for debate, #4 and #5 tend to be the worst.

There are of course, exceptions and aberrations.

Another thing, no real Christian would leave the religion question on his profile page as "not saying", and no one seriously looking for debate would answer the "looking for" with a "men" or "women". This isn't a dating site.

Members who use, in their siggy, quotes (of other members) they consider silly is really a cheap shot. No context, just the low blow every time they post. Weak.

But it is often amazing how apt some names are. After reading an idiotic post you look at the name and it's something like "sillyant" and you think, "Yeah, I can see it" or some vulgar idiot calling himself "thuggishloser". No surprise.

Each type has subgroups and a longtime poster can grow into another name type. Like "Thorshammer" becoming "daa-umm". But I've noticed that name changes usually are governed this way...

When they do change,
1's keep their names longest. 2's usually become 4's. 3's leave more often than change names, 4's usually become 5's and sometimes 1's.

5's never become 1's. 4's never become 3's. 3's on the rare occassions they stay and change, keep the same type. 2's never become 5's.

Which number type are you?

Critique me master.

This would not be a critique but an analysis, and of your board personality, not you yourself in RL. I don't know you.

But I do have enough experience to know that your profile page is bogus. Sorry, the analysis works better on real profiles, even if it has minimal info.

And how you feel is synonymous with fact, right?

Everyone is different from other people. That is why they are called "other" people.

Sorry, I cannot make your profile real, only you can do that. But I do have a question. Why 16 years old?

What i believe to be fact, yes. I'm trying to compromise with that "believe" there. Take it before this turns into a flame war.

I am not a number. I am a free man.
To quote Number 6.


A free man who quotes a number?

A cultural reference of which, I assume you are unaware.
https://en.wikipedia.org...(The_Prisoner)

You are half a 4 and half a 5. People with equal parts of two consecutive numbers are twins. People with equal parts of two non-consecutive numbers are hybrids.

Hybrids are rare. Twins are rarer still.

Trust me, it won't. You don't have a flame thrower.

Sure. There is no need to say you're "different" from other people. Now you know.

Ok, you're stuck with that story. Good luck.
