Could someone explain to this old fart what the kiki and bouba thing I keep seeing around the place is all about? Is it something to do with Köhler's work, or just something the urban dictionary hasn't yet catalogued?

    It is something to do with that work. One user just uses those words as "cool person" and "bad person"

    I was the one who arbitrarily assigned meanings to the famous linguistic experiment entities:

    Bouba = bad and cringe
    Kiki = cool and good

    I’m happy to be famous.

    @Elyz it was just a regular morning when I visited devrant. You know, the usual. I immediately thought I was still dreaming when I saw this, but world around me seemed real. This was it. They added the “bouba alert” tab near mentions.

    I opened it and there was just one item.

    Your comment.
