Kazz is a leader of men. He understands the secret to good conversation: Keep things light and fill the blanks with positive things.

Lyrai tells it like it is. You know when Lyrai says she likes something it's the honest truth. Lyrai has the kind of panache that starts memes and promotes conflict resolution.

I've had the pleasure of watching Brentai's sense of humor go from blunt-force-trauma funny to razor edge brain-surgery funny over the years. He's a horribly nice person who deserves many good things.

I used context in the conversational sense.

When two people who prefer to use a high-context conversation format talk to each other they will both dance around the point always, neither ever quite stating the point, each expecting the other to follow unspoken elements of the conversation as a matter of course. I'm only like 2/3 high-context, but I am strongly in this half of the ballpark.

Here is a high-context conversation in bold, with a more low-context version in parenthesis, and bracketed commentary for clarification on the differences between them:

"My cousin is coming over." (I am excited about my cousin visiting.)
[in high context, the excitement should be read from body language or more importantly simply inferred by the fact that the person mentioned the event at all*]

"Oh, I am very happy for you." (Really? What's the occasion?)
[in either case, these are ways to say "tell me more,' but direct questions are rude in HC]

"We always have a good time." (It's just a visit. Don't fill your head with unnecessary details, dude.)
[the first is not necessarily a conversation closer, however it IS a way of pointedly not continuing the conversation: telling someone to drop a subject would be rude in HC]

Japan is very HC. They call U. S. Americans rude for being direct, while our culture considers indirectness to be rude.

I learned that I was high-context after studying cultural differences for a semester in college. Fascinating subject, and very enlightening. I learned that there's really no such thing as rudeness, but there ARE people to be avoided for their embarassing or hard to deal with style of communication. Brentai is high-context and to a degree so is Sharkey. (you are not high-context at all, Thad) [did you see what i did there]

Man, that was difficult to explain! (please inform me whether I got the point across or not)

*in high context conversations smalltalk is replaced with a comfortable silence (in low context silence is mistaken for stupidity or agreement)

This play is terrible.  You can't just have the characters announce how they feel.  That makes me angry!

Okay, I get it.  You took a psych class once and are using that as an excuse for the fact that you love posting incomprehensible gibberish for the single purpose of annoying people.

Replace "psych" with "econ" and we've got your politics covered too.

EDIT: You know what?  You just used the fact that you needed me to explain my post to you as a springboard to explain that you are high-context.  :hurr:

EDIT 2: Actually, come to think of it, that's exactly why I brought up your seeming misuse of "high-context" in the first place.  Another nuance which seems to have sailed over your high-context head.

Dude, Thad, relax a little.


Ok Thad, you want to talk about this? Clearly you do, because you are characterizing me as a child who does not understand of what he speaks.

If Picasso sat through an art class and made a post about color theory you'd laugh if he hadn't first painted a million cubism paintings. I get that. But I was born with a brain for interpersonal communications. Ask anyone who knows me. I understand the brain in a way that can't easily be quantified, becuase I don't do it consciously.

That having been said, when I "sat through" this class (actually aced it, and literally led my group (it's lame to quantify, but I led my 12 group members to acing the course having never cracked the book msyelf) something in my brain picked up on the fact that while this category or element of interaction is not a hard fact (LIKE EVERY GODDAMN THING IN ALL OF SCIENCE THAT ISN'T HARD MATH) I knew it was useful to know. And when you asked me about it, I though "Well, that might be a thread split topic, but I'll answer it and maybe it WILL get thread split and people can intelligently pick it apart the way Thad likes to do." What I did not consider is that you'd get angry and lock the topic. So here, in the middle of this thread I made for you to do EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID in, is my response to your heavy-handed backslap: You are an expert at categorical encyclopedic knowledge of political theory and have a strong opinion: I am an expert in my own field. I could give a fuck if you if you don't like it, but stop treating me like your girlfriend.

Code: [Select]
Because I read into your post. It's, like, the premise of what I was trying to explain. This is actually the entire problem we've had since day one. Your gravitas with the masses of pyoko attracts people to your way of thinking. I don't mind it mostly, since I'm only here for like three people's posts, but once in a while when your ego inflates like this I like to egg you on. I've been told by many people in secret that they find it hilarious. I don't do it for them, I'm actually trying to get you to mellow a bit. It seems you're immune, so rather than take the Kazz route and start imitating you I think I'll just let sleeping dogs lie.
EDIT 2: Actually, come to think of it, that's exactly why I brought up your seeming misuse of "high-context" in the first place.  Another nuance which seems to have sailed over your high-context head.

Yes. Yes it is. Now you've met me halfway on this. Why the fuck did you react so angrily?

This is the ONE PLACE in the world aside from when I'm hanging out with my close friends where I don't feel the need to use my powers. Addendum: This is the one place it doesn't work even if I try. Which I don't want to.
