    Wow, that "figurative interpretation" is opposite all right. Still, isn't the "non-resistance literal interpretation" both still valid (due to the context of the verse) and the norm? The Wikipedia article reads that way to me.

    As for seeking revenge..either I fantasize about it in my head if I have a lot of time to think about it (but never actually carry out my plans)..or I do it spur-of-the-moment once I get the chance, usually to be funny in front of people. If I get one of those spur-of-the-moment chances to get revenge sometimes I spend too much time deciding whether to take it or not, and the chance is over.
    what is it INFJ's do to provoke you this much, and is it only INFJ's or other types as well?

    Yeah, I was about to say... I would imagine they would be the last type to illicit that type of reaction. INFJs are ice cream, teddy bears and daises.

    Heh. Good thing we tend to mellow with age.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I'm too lazy for revenge, I may think of it in the initial phases of my hurt, but acting on it seems like too much effort.

    I just cut them out of my life and move on. Also it's bringing myself to treat someone so badly that I can't do. My revenge plots are not very nice, to act them out wouldn't be very nice, and although they would finally hurt like they made me hurt, I would be responsible for it, and as it stands I just can't do it.

    I'm not vengeful in regard to romantic matters. Everybody makes his/her choices, and that's all.

    Another matter is work. I've already planned to kill the entire family (no joke) of an employer that, by virtue of some contractual trick, managed not to pay me 2 full months of working.

    I've had an ISFJ girlfriend burning all the nice love letters-poetry I had written her over me making a strong comment over a girl that was passing by. I found it offensive and petty, I broke up with her immediatly.

    I fantasize about revenge periodically but could never follow through. I feel guilty for even thinking of deliberately and methodically hurting someone. I have, in the heat of the moment, said very nasty things to and about people. As a child, when my brother aggravated me, I would hit him. In both situations, I've apologized profusely to the people I've hurt after I cooled down and realized I accomplished nothing by behaving so irrationally.

    I'm not terribly upset when perpetrators of particularly heinous crimes receive a taste of poetic justice, however.

    I think it takes hurt feelings to seek for revenge and it is kind of illogical, so I would say F-types would me more prone to get back at somebody.
    Even if the kind of revenge seems totaly detached and planned, the motivation would be usually based upon feelings more than pure logic. I think, at least

    My occasional little retaliations are usually quite lame and mostly serve the purpose of releasing my feelings before they bottle up. These little retaliations aside, I do bear long grudges. It takes a lot to really anger me, but when I finally feel angry, I do show it. Also, chances are that I will never forgive. I have never carried out a well-planned, cold-blooded revenge, but I have assumed a bitter, merciless attitude towards some people who have gone too far. I can connect it with Fi, I guess.
