    Cool aelan, I'll give you a game!

    In fact, I'll give anyone a game who PM's me their details!! *throws down gauntlet*

    I do find it very interesting how at that club, the top 10 on the leaderboard, apart from an INFJ and an ESTJ, is totally taken up with ISTJ's and ENxP's. Like I said, it's just bizarre cos these types are total opposites, yet somehow have this in common.

    My ENFJ son is a terrible sport. He hates to lose and would rather not play at all. He will even cheat to try to win.

    He has a huge vocabulary, but I don't think he would enjoy Scrabble unless he won. I wonder if they lack the offensive attack attitude needed for winning?

    I think it's more a case of resenting it and getting cross when others take that attitude towards them, sorta not being able to not take it personally. At least, it's that way and always was with my ESFJ sister, and though obviously that's not the same as ENFJ, I think it's still the Fe that makes her that way. She was always notorious in the family for being a terrible sport - always the one to knock the board over/pretend she rolled a six and not let anyone see the dice/cheat in other ways and then get REALLY mad when anyone challenged her.

    Even now, in their 20's, her and my ENFJ sister are just the same with games - they start pouting if you play to win, and seem to genuinely get upset and think you're 'mean' for trying to beat them. That's what I meant about how they just don't seem to 'get' the point of competition.

    My mom is ESFJ though, and she's a really good sport - and really good at Scrabble too

    my family loves to play scrabble, which is kind of funny since all of us are terrible spellers

    my dad (intp) or I usually win- he has an excellent vocabulary and I don't like losing, my poor esfp sister loses patience half way through the game and starts arranging letters into more amusing words (that will never fit onto the board) on her little letter stand and my mother stresses over whether she's spelling things right

    Maybe we should organize an MBTIc Scrabulous tournament, see what types do best out of the people here? We could have type teams!! Heheh...

    ahhh! Don't play scrabble with substitute! He's better than he pretends to be.

    I'm getting thrashed.

    Dude, I'm like, 20 points behind you. Admittedly that's not a bad recovery after your bingo-itis, but the fat lady ain't sung yet.

    Anyone else for a game, or are y'all chicken?

    It was tense and tough, but in the end she beat me, 359 to 353

    your vocab is much better than mine. Just got lucky with "recover", that's all.

    and what the heck are:

    jugum
    heme
    rheme
    eosine

    ??! You've funny words.
