in reply to My interpersonal communication protocol/style is the most like...

A list for people who can't decide:

  • TCP Conversation starts with short phrases, and could end on an exhastive discourse on the monarchy of middle-age China
  • UDP You start conversations with a discourse on the monarchy of middle-age China, but you often skip words in the middle of the sentance, or walk away while you're still talking
  • ICMP You run up to people, scream "PING!" in their ear, and run away
  • IPX IPX-type people used to be their own kind, but are now largely considered a subset of TCP-type people
  • SMB You enjoy running up to a group of people, yelling "HI, EVERYONE!!!", and then run away, only to return a few minutes later
  • TFTP Your communication contains only essential details
  • SMTP You enjoy harrasing people with your blater one person at a time
  • NNTP Like SMTP, but you do it to many people at once
  • HTTP Everyone seems to like you, despite glaring problems
  • WAP A mostly theoretical communication type that has yet to see a working, practical example
  • SOAP You like hanging around an HTTP-type person, but will sometimes be around an SMTP-type person, just to prove you can

    Did you know that WAP stands for Wasn't Actually Possible?

    I can't really say that I am one protocol, I would rather think of myself as an old clunky server, with a bunch of ports open. (going by Schemer's definitions)

    • If I am talking code, I would say UDP, definetely. (but they either walk away or their eye's glaze over)
    • TFTP at home, I have a 7 year old and 2 year old twins, essential details are important.

    An alternative interpretation:
    • TCP You prefer to have long lasting exchanges, and you always know exactly who you are talking to.
    • UDP You utter short phrases and you don't care if you are heard or not. Sometimes you aren't talking to anybody in particular.
    • ICMP You exist only to faciliate conversations between other people but you don't have anything to add to the discussion yourself.
    • IPX You are amish. You refuse to do things the modern way and you don't speak directly to non-amish people.
    • SMB Refusing to speak proper English, you expect everybody around you to learn your native language.
    • TFTP You still use telegrams Stop Nothing wrong with that Full Stop
    • SMTP You are a mailman.
    • NNTP You hold meetings for everything that you do.
    • HTTP All you want to know is "What are you asking of me?"
    • WAP You don't have much to say, but you can heard far and wide.
    • SOAP You are Charles Dickens. Paid by the word, you tend to write much more than you need to get the point across.
