Title: 1. You are almost never late for your appointments YES NO
Post by: meekon5 on March 15, 2011, 01:04:40 PM
There is something else we could try. "Someone" take the test, make a copy of the questions and post them on the forum. Then we could all vote on how we each think The Dude would reply to each question!
That way, when he comes out INFJ, you all will all know I'm not cheatin'! ;D

Define late.  By whose standards are we measuring this concept of "late"?  The time I arrive is the time I'm there another enforcing a time that I wasn't as some kind of "appointment" is just messing with reality in favour of idealism, and the hope that maybe, just maybe the two might collide into some perfect union of glorious order.

Not gonna happen.  I'm on time for everything, it's just that most other people are almost always early.  That's not my fault, man.

Considering my flippantly pedantic nature, I'd better abstain from looking at the other 70-odd questions in this test... :)

By the Dudes Dude. the whole point of this exercise was to fill it out the way you felt the Dude would do it.

That's the problem with you intellectuals too much thinking about thinking.

;D

I always arrive about 15 to 20 minutes early for stuff basically to just be prepared.  Makes things easier in the long run.

It's like...If you just put stuff off, it comes back and gives you problems later, so like...just get it out of the way so you have more time to play. or something.

i dunno. im high.

I'm never late. And I personally don't like when others are unless they offer an apology.
But then people now a days are pretty rude as a rule.
Day Mommies didn't raise em up right I guess.

I'm aware of this fact, oh wise one :)
That was me being infused with the spirit of The Dude.  If I was personally not worried about keeping time you'd have not seen me for dust on Saturday :P
Apart from the last sentance, of course, that was pure me :)

Is there some part in TBL movie that we can refer to that can shed some light on this question for The Dude?
How about arriving at Marty's show to give notes? Showing up for leagues? Going to the good and thorough doctor? Going to the Big Lebowski's when he was summoned?
Seems to me he was always on time.

See I don't remember any one actually saying anything one way or the other. He arrives but we are never told what the arranged time was and if he is within reasonable boundaries. And a lot of the time its all pretty spontaneous (ie when hes dragged into limos etc).

No one ever accuses The Dude of being late as The Dude did with Walter when he came to bowling alley 20 minutes late with the "Pomeranian"!
If The Dude had been late I believe we would have heard about it. 8)

Thats late with a payment not late as in an appointment. I'm following a fairly pedantic line here though.

As mentioned before generally it's Walter turning up late for most things in the film.

True, but I think it's a clue to his character, in the absence of any direct evidence. I don't think he'd be worrying about that shit.

But is that not indicative of the state of his finances.

I've been there myself where you are robbing Peter to pay Paul all the time, I know I used to live from one overdraft to another from bank to bank just to be able to exist on the little money I had.

That's another thing we don't know--his financial situation. You're right that it could be that, but if it was, you'd think he'd be very aware that he was late with the rent, instead of taking a while to understand that this was what Marty was talking about.

It's a good point Outer, but I also thought he was being intentionally vague the way most of us rent dodgers are when the landlord calls for the money. ;D

You know, this seems eminently open to interpretation. I think there are quite a few questions like that and was wondering if it would be a good idea to score the thing in a couple of different ways and see if it changes his personality type at all. Or would that be too much work?

Not if you want to do it yourself! ;D

I feel an obligation to give it at least an attempt to appear on time if I've made that promise. Though I wont stress too much for it, if reasonable effort doesn't get me there on time then I can always say "sorry, didn't make it on time".

If my honest confession that I wasn't late on purpose isn't enough, then Fuck it.

That having been said, I'm usually way ahead of time almost everywhere. I don't like being in rush so I count extra time for the travel just in case and often end up loitering in my destination for quite some time.

I would be willing to do that, once we get to a point where we have enough results in. Just go back to the Meyers-Briggs site and take the survey with the Dude's answers, then? Is there a place on the site where I could view all the results at once?

Well  dude...that's all well and good like....but...all these questions are for The Dude. We are trying to figure out how The Dude would have replied to all 72 questions from the Myers-Briggs personality test so we can...well...just maybe...answer the the question Quaker dude asked...what is The Dude's personality profile?
Most of the 72 are pretty much self evident, but half a dozen or we are having some problems coming to a consensus on.
How would The Dude reply?

Not yet, but once we come to a consensus on the few remaining ties I will collect them into one post.
Haven't checked back for a few days but there were ties or very close calls on 22, 35, 47, 49, 55, and 65.
I  think we should have at least a 2 vote margin. I would like a much bigger margin, but we only have a handful of dudes replying.

How would The Dude reply?


I do think, that while Dude would probably not use same wordings as I did, his answer would essentially be what I said at the start of my post - that's how it was intended anyway, and just the latter part just about me(while the beginning part applies to me too).

The Dude is a man of honour and tries to keep his word. But in his world, there is no such thing as urgency - things happen mostly on their own weight with light effort(just like rolling the bowling ball towards the pins, difference between a strike and a gutter is only slight amount of effort).

If that effort isn't enough to make it, the Dude wouldn't get a spasm, he'd take it easy.

Ok then, thanks dude.
You going to give the other questions a try?
No need to leave a comment on them dude...unless of course you want to.
