    The kinds I'm talking about are not only "pitiful" they are also dangerous.
    Yes, this is important. They are dangerous to know and keep in one's life. They don't seem human. And that's a good way to keep it all in perspective, a true psychopath won't be able to think like a human does, you can't reach them.

    Reading this topic I'm starting to come up with the conclusion, that I'm a "Bad" person.
    Admittedly I don't know you, but you don't seem like a bad person to me. And your avatar always makes me smile. How could you be bad?

    I've tried in RL to explain the idea of psychological egoism with regard to altruism... but then I'm told I'm a bad person to think that way, by the more sentimental folks.. Sigh.
    Seconding Anja - can you go into this a bit further? I *think* I have an idea of what you're getting at, and incidentally I think I agree.

    You're right of course. I make stupid decisions all the time thinking they are good solutions. Must be the P in me. Open to possibilities and impulsive. Often gets me in trouble.

    Anyone have this problem? How do you deal with it?

    I can always identify a bad person because they are breathing and have a pulse. That is the criteria that I use anyway. (And no I'm not really kidding.)

    I believe you. Some people deal with things in strange ways. I'm no exception. How would a normal person deal with it?

    Heh, I was responding to the OP and not you in particular. (Your post is kind of a derail anyway.)

    It may seem bizarre. It's feels bizarre. Another INTP once told me a story about a time when he faced an extremely stressful emotional situation and he told me he was totally detached emotionally. I would not have believed it if I had not experienced it myself. The obvious advantage is that emotional states of mind lead to stupid decisions. I have to admit I was in that state earlier.

    This has happened to me. I don't think I was well liked during that time, but I didn't really care. Afterward, I would think, "maybe I shouldn't have said that," but I didn't "feel" guilty.. or anything, really.

    Are you responding to me or to something else? I can't tell at this point.

    "Evil is Powerful. Courage is Solid." - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots tag.

    ... any way, what about the kind of 'bad' portrayed in The Dark Knight? Was The Joker really bad? Are evil-doers just something trivial in mankind? Was there any way to stop Harvey from becoming bad?

    (Have to watch it again!)
