The power to embody social values. Variation of Philosophy Embodiment and Virtue Embodiment


The user embodies social values, which serve the purpose of letting people get along with one another.


Main Social Values

  • Beauty Inducement - to uphold a sense of aesthetics
  • Creativity - to convey ones emotions through artistic expression
  • Modesty - to suppress the impulse to show ones strength in social contexts.

Overlapping with Utilitarian Embodiment

Overlapping with Morality Embodiment

A combination of all three:

  • Friendship - willingness to form social bonds based on affection and habit of facing joy and hardship together with friends rather than alone. Needs to be tempered with independence, see below.
  • Duty - A sense of obligation to those with whom bonds of trust and loyalty have been formed. Closely related to loyalty, but also includes an element of industriousness in the name of the collective.
  • Humility - realistic view of one's own limitations and place in the world, while at the same time possessing a true sense of one's own worth. This need not imply acceptance, unless one truly knows that one's lot cannot be changed. Opposite of Pride or arrogance, both of which denote having an inflated sense of self-worth.
  • Independence - abstinence from relying on others for the solution of problems that are more prudently dealt with by oneself in solitude. Can be viewed as synonymous with self-sufficiency but that also carries problematic negative connotations, see solidarity.
  • Mirth - Closely related to cheer but includes an element of sharing of one's joy through laughter or playful activity. Often follows cheer naturally and without further effort. Can also be simulated even when down in order to safeguard the cheer of others. Finding cheer for oneself is of course the preferred route to expressing mirth, however, since simulation of emotions in the long run is both exhausting and insincere.
  • Sincerity. Closely related to honesty. The drive to fully acknowledge one's deeper motivations, and not hiding them from trusted others. May lead one from a destructive path to a constructive one, hence the utilitarian implication.
