    If I disliked said person, I'd want to have as little to do with them as possible, successful or otherwise. If it was someone I liked but who had hurt me, I'd let them know (and likely feel a glow of pleasure inside at the prospect of doing so) but I still wouldn't want to rub it in their face. Just a "Hey, I did it after all" heads up.

    @highlander - Oh, we keep quoting each other at the worst times.

    What about the person being an ISFP?

    Interesting.

    Let's say you didn't dislike this person. Let's say this successful person were the one rubbing it into your face. Let's say you had hurt them in the past. It wasn't insignificant. How would you respond to this?

    I'd feel shame, resentment, and respect in varying quantities depending on the circumstances. I guess I'd congratulate them and then try to move on. No need to act more ungraciously than I already did before, and I understand the urge to crow over someone who's pissed you off in the past, even though it's not the most worthy impulse.

    The desire for revenge is an immature psychological drive.

    The desire for justice, however, is not.

    Seek justice, not revenge.

    And learn to discern the difference.

    I've already been through that stage.

    There's a stage beyond it.
    How about enlightening everyone then on the difference? You haven't explained/reasoned your claims; you only state them as fact by claiming revenge and justice are different. Your pride masks a self-love that condescends the intellect of your audience when you can't be bothered to support your arguments properly.
