    About

    Myers Briggs Personality Types are a group of 16 distinct classifications of personalities individuals could exhibit. The Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator has gained popularity in fandoms and has been used to identify characters to each of the personality types in the chart. Moreover, the personality types themselves have received their own iterations, symbols, and justifications from fans.

    Origin

    The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. These preferences were extrapolated by Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers from the theories proposed by world renowned psychologist Carl Jung. The indicator was invented during World War II in the 1940s with the belief a knowledge of personality preferences would help women who were entering the industrial workforce[1].

    Spread

    The earliest known instance of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator surfacing online is in a blog post published by Malcolm Gladwell on September, 2004 titled ‘Personality Plus’ at Gladwell.com which criticized the M.B.T.I. that it ‘has a large problem with consistency’ and its founders ‘did not actually understand Jung at all’[2].

    The earliest known instance of characters being associated with the 16 personality types was found in a blog post published by user Peter on June 14, 2006 titled ‘Myers-Briggs typology: I’m an ENFP’ on blog.forret.com [3]. The blog post was supportive of the Myers Briggs Personality Indicator and comments that it is more or less a more credible form of astrology, and presented an image of the MBTI chart that showed female actresses that befit their given personality type.


    On April 6, 2013, the blog A Little Bit of Personality was made. The blog is currently active and is dedicated to the Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator, often posting summaries and explanations to how fictional characters are apt to belong to one personality type or another[4].

    Shortly after this, his modding videos of minecraft managed to also receive huge viewer numbers. In 2011 Robbaz took his channel in a new direction with the release of his “Duke Nukem Forever Whiteboard – Operation: Homo Moose” video in which Robbaz fully voiceovers the video instead of using captions. This video was very well received and has since gained 1.1 million views.

  • 12/30/14--12:32: Le Wrong Generation
  • About

    Le Wrong Generation, and related phrases such as Only 90s Kids Will Get This, is an online term used to describe the behavior of certain people who nostalgically believe that things in the past used to be significantly better than they are today. The phrase is most frequently utilized to satirize people who hold reactionary attitudes towards popular music or culture.

    Origin

    The term “Born in the wrong generation” was used by internet people, normally teens, as a way to express their disdain for today’s popular culture, and love for things of the past, especially music. The term received criticism for its perceived narrow-mindedness and oversimplification of the past, and was quickly parodied on sites such 4chan’s /mu/ board and satirical subreddits.



    Spread

    The term was heavily used on /mu/, especially on cringe threads, to poke fun at posts by people who believed that the music of the past was objectively superior.

    The /mu/ supported subreddit r/lewronggeneration[1] was created to compile images characterized by this behavior. It is described as “satirically mocking those people who, blinded by their own nostalgia, believe certain things in the past to be unequivocally better than today”. Such behavior is referred to with the slang term “defening” by users of the subreddit.

    Leelah Alcorn’s Suicide refers to the suicide of transgender teenager Leelah Alcorn, born Josh Alcorn, who committed suicide by stepping into traffic on December 21, 2014 and left a suicide note on her tumblr queue which was published one day after her death. She was hit by a tractor trailer on Interstate 71, 4 miles from her Ohio home.[1]

    The Suicide Note

    The suicide note[2] attributed the reasons behind her depression and eventual suicide to the rejection from her family who, according to Leelah “reacted extremely negatively, telling me that it was a phase, that I would never truly be a girl, that God doesn’t make mistakes, that I am wrong,” took her to Christian therapists who told her “that I was selfish and wrong and that I should look to God for help.” After being isolated by her parents from her peers for 5 months, she began to have suicidal thoughts. The note ends with a plea for her property to be sold and her money to be put to “trans civil rights and support groups,” and for her death to mean something. The post gained several hundred thousand notes on tumblr.

    Online Reaction

    News of Leelah’s death spread quickly on tumblr and twitter garnering solemn sympathy and outrage, with transgender activists such as Laverne Cox, Andre Pejic, Janet Mock and indy video game developer Brianna Wu[3] commenting, and posts about the circumstances of her suicide gaining upwards of 200 thousand notes.

    Transgender activist and writer Janet Mock, had her tweet widely shared on twitter, including being retweeted by Laverne Cox, actress from “Orange is the New Black” and transgender activist.

    The story was picked up by several news outlets including Time[4], ABC news[5], The Daily Mail[6], Buzzfeed[7], USA Today[8], the Mirror[9], International Buisness Times[10], and Cincinnati.com[11].

    “Rest in Power”

    The petition gained over 100,000 signatures after one day.

  • About

    “Trollpastas" are humorious stories which mostly are satire to one or more certain creepypastas, creepypasta-clichés or creepypastas in general. They are known for often using bad grammar, badly edited pictures, excessive using of memes and clichés and other (self-)ironic components.

    History

    The first Trollpasta is considered to be “”" />And then a skeleton popped out“. Later, ”http:" />John Wojcik started writing intentionally bad pastas on Creepypasta Wiki to troll the community. Other people followed. Finally, these pastas were moved/recurrected to a spin-off wikia called “Trollpasta Wiki” where not only Trollpastas can be published but also creepypastas like Sonic.exe get moved, which are that bad that they don´t even match the standards of Spinpasta Wiki or even are unintentionally funny.
    On Trollpasta Wiki, there are two monthly awards: The trollpasta of the month and the fail of the month. Sadly, there is a flood of trollpastas which try to be funny just throught purposely being bad.

  • 01/01/15--13:12: Supernatural Anon Hate Panic
  • About

    “The Supernatural Anon Hate Panic” is an event in late December 2014 where various tumblr users claimed there was a raid targeting users in the Supernatural fandom who had depression or social anxiety by perpetrators sending anonymous hate messages. Several popular posts spread through the micro-blogging site describing how the messages had driven users to self-harm and suicide, describing how to retrieve an IP address from anonymous messages, expressing sentiments of support for the alleged victims, and warning others of incoming anonymous hate.

    These allegations were later found to have little basis, and the tag #affectedbyhate, set up to support those affected by the anonymous hate, was flooded with doubt about the existence of a raid.



    The group behind the alleged attack was reported to be from 8chan or 4chan, invoking memories of the 2014 Tumblr-4chan Raids. While a raid was planned by the 8chan board /firstday/ against tumblr, it’s methods didn’t match reports of anonymous hate messages. Users from 4chan’s /b/ board, however, went to omegle under the tag of 4chan and simulated the planning of a raid. There, they passed along the usernames of supernatural themed blogs, and their “triggers.” Tumblr users acting as “spies” screen-capped the exchanges and shared them on tumblr. Other 4chan users spread a rumor that hackers from 4chan had planted a virus called s32 and advised others to delete it from their computers in a ploy to convince them to delete system 32.



    Supernatural Cast Tweets

    Several stars of the tv show “Supernatural” sent messages of support to the fans, including Felicia Day, Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard.


    Change.org Petitions

    Soon after the allegations of a raid, two Change.org petitions were made, one[1] which gained over 11 thousand signatures that asked for yahoo and tumblr to find and press charges against those responsible, and the other[2] only petitioning for tumblr to “Prosecute and investigate anonymous cyberterrorists” and gained nearly 2,500 signatures.
