    Some people don't have anything else to offer to get attention so they settle for negative attention and call it "being tough." Compensation for lack of knowledge by trying to look superior.

    A sad thing and painfully true in RL. It's expected for some young people. They may have never been cared about enough to be taught better. They have lots to learn yet before they have something useful to contribute. If they don't learn something along the way it looks pretty pathetic as one "matures."

    Some feel a need to "punish" others for the hand life has dealt them. It's a self-perpetuating cycle of abuse. Wounded egos make for pretty miserable companions.

    Other posters may be struggling with mood or thought disorders and not attending to their health.

    If it's small consolation, their lives are much more miserable for them to live then it is for others to watch.

    It grieves me to know something they don't. All they need to do is take a cue from those around them and do the hard work it takes to enter the society which they choose to distain because they don't know how to enter it.

    Lonely, frustrated, angry, hurt. Tough way to live a life. And a poor decision not to try to change that.

    That kind of goes for the rest of the world too.

    Question: Is it perhaps possible to use the knowledge of type another way?

    I mean, I have seen some INTJ forums where they bash each other to pieces with jokes, and they actually say: I can say this coz I know you can take it. I wouldn't do this with an F. So maybe if we realize who we are replying to, we can take that info into account when answering?

    As for us F's, maybe we can stop hugging and cuddling T's to death as that makes them uncomfortable, or so I've been told *grin*.

    Just a thought

    Yes, it's a question of "emotional intelligence".

    Some people have it, and some people... not so much.

    I should have added, Sarah, that I understand that your OP wasn't as much a question as it was an opportunity to speak my mind about some of the maladaptive behaviors hereabouts and I appreciated that.

    I like the phrase "pre-cognitive commitment." Guess that's what I was saying. My post sounds like a put-down, I realize. And I think any student of human behavior will recognize what truth there is in it.

    The good news is that there are other ways to attempt self-development and satisfaction in life and being on a forum of this type is a beginning.

    When I was a mechanic, I had to roll with a million "joking" put-downs a day. Some days, I could take it or even laugh it off. Other days, like when the ENTIRE garage full of guys were using me for mob target practice? I'd pretty much lose any patience I had left and it would be ON. I was the only woman in there and even though I knew it was going to be open-season on me more than it wasn't, I wasn't responsible for the idiocy of the people around me and I wasn't going to just stand there and let them crack the 50th "little lady" joke without getting it right between the eyes.

    Consider the quantity of "nice for an S blah blah" the few Sensers on this board are dealing with. It's obnoxious and dim-witted repeated ad nauseum.

    Agreed. And I think a lot of it comes down to Sarah wanting more understanding for her type, while not really understanding that other types might have a different sense of humor than she does, and might not mean to be offensive at all.

    Sarah, you seem like a very smart, very interesting person, but I can't help but notice how much of the time you spend on this board fighting for Sensor Rights, instead of just participating in the threads for fun.

    I must warn you, that I, as a dog, will have an edge.

    ... but I reckon you'll be able to hold your own too, being a piranha and all.

    I haven't killed a cow in twenty seconds lately. I'm due for some practice.
