Someone decides to join a real life social group where they have gatherings every weekend. But when he goes there he insults the people there for discussion of their topics (known as real life trolling).
Basically someone who joins anything in real life to give himself a cheap laugh out of it by insulting other people. Or perhaps inappropriate behaviour in a proper setting.

My first thoughts exactly.

No. Trolls being only a virtual net phenomenon means that they get one free party trick. Anonymity in self-identification.
Real life hecklers and drunks, even if you don't know their names, they're physically there presenting their special trick, hence, real life consequences, if there were to be any.
Trolling (aka, virtual reality only) allows you to bypass that. Be as socially awkward irl as you like; all of a sudden, on the net, you can get the balls and the wit you "always had inside", to come out....and let have. NET= Nerd Engages Testicles. Self (identity) secured....one click. *Poof* Social performance anxiety abated.
I.e., trolling doesn't really relate to real life scenarios.
INxx very likely. INTx likely.
ENTXs are likely to fall into this as well, as the net attracts their personality, esp. ENTP. So, other likely candidates.
silly necroposter bring old dead threads back to life...
ENTPs love to pick at ideas and INTPs and INTJs to point out stupidity.. I cant call this trolling to be honest, although it can be harsh.
But I suggest the winner is NiTiFe, my mirror. When gone VERY badly, these folks lash out at others to prevent expression of external ideas that threaten their own self identity, their own self understanding...
"A bad idea machine is a bad idea"
The insult format will be one of subtle, offhand, sarcastic insults at individual, not the idea of the individual. This is the TROLL part. This can lead to a global attempt at character assassination should they feel you dont meet the social standards for intellectual contribution. They will follow you all over the board insulting you over and over again, in an attempt to sway external opinion. They also will turn the problem from a discussion of a general idea into a discussion of the character flaws of the idea originator-if the idea originator wasnt so fucked up, surely they would never have suggested such a fucked up idea....Like you arent smart enough to think for yourself. Often they very blatantly project their own external issues-as they accuse other people of having that exact issue. Projection.
NFPs end up on the wrong sides of these sorts of folks they evaluate logical competency in terms of Ti-not Fi or Te, thus they cant understand where our ideas come from, thus by default the idea must be wrong as it seems so sloppy, since they cant see the Fi underpinning.
The fact that we then choose to voice the idea via Te speculation actually violates their Fe value of harmonious group interactions and socially earned right to sharing of ideas, as no innate Ti user would ever voice a speculative idea so "forcefully" and in such a "bossy, know it all manner".
I havent seen these folks here, as our INFJs, even the Ti skilled ones, are very caring and seem to desire to understand others, but I have noted this on other MBTI forums.
