    but hey, it's better to learn these things through discussions on an internet forum than through a terrible misunderstanding that would inevitably come from him trying to apply his ideas in real life

    that sort of mindset leads to a lot of spoiled brats
    Well, you either react to a child's insults or you ignore it. But mostly, the child desires a reaction. So play his game or don't and let him find a new one (perhaps with slightly more wisdom).

    I think you are all retarded. Except for Oakysage <3

    At least he brought a little REAL perspective to the table.


    If we as adults are supposed to know more than the youth, I would think that comes in more areas than just general opinionated knowledge.

    Exits thread.

    Just out of curiosity, if you met a fifteen year old on the street that was spouty off, you would then walk up to him or her and say the same things that people are saying to him now?

    Personally, I ignore people that are young and immature with regard to life and life experiences. However, if I want to "teach them a lesson," I certainly don't do it by acting just like they are.

    Now if they're older, my reaction is completely different.

    I'd merely attempted to explain some stats to him, but apparently that was boring adult stuff :rolli:

    I correct kids IRL as well... no use having my day ruined just because someone else decided to let their kids run wild

    (and a skimming of his posts doesn't show much promise in finding any more mature games to play... not unless he gets hit by a falling coconut like Keith Richards! )

    I think the youth is already too pandered to. I've actually had it with this societal idea that kids shouldn't be disciplined or talked to like adults if they want to pretend to be an adult. It's not like he's five and we're telling him to shut up.

    No one is telling him to shut up, for that matter, we're just arguing with him.

    Pretty much. I'm sick of people letting their brats run wild.

    Understood. Though I like to take the most likely case in that he's still quite a young 15 year old as stated. So I honestly wouldn't advise bothering much.

    He is being attacked and therefore on the defensive. He won't change his thoughts with such things.

    Oaky, would you be defending him if he weren't INTJ?

    Are you just being sympathetic to INTJ weaknesses?

    Isn't much use now is it? It's been going on for quite the while with not much avail.
