    Delivery is often much more intimidating than the presence of positive attributes such as intelligence, wisdom, or good looks.
    Why scare quote in one place and not the other?
    Weren't you one of the people who already said it was dumb to be intimidated by other posters?
    You are being inconsistent just to be a nag. How dull.

    And I can't account for idiotic perceptions either.

    On the scare quotes, the latter was referring to true intimidation and the former was referring to the perception of intimidation. Moreover, one can think that something's dumb but still understand the reasoning that another uses to reach those conclusions. There's no inconsistency.

    I've said all that I want to say. Against my usual nature, I chimed into an 'intimidating' discussion so that I could speak indirectly to the rest of this forum on what 'intimidation' actually entails. This is a case study, and I'll allow whoever's reading to draw their own conclusions.


    I'm bowing out of that particular discussion and taking on more productive endeavors, like sardonically replying to

    I avoid conflict sometimes, but rarely because I'm intimidated. It's more because conflict in general drains me and I tend to be the type of online arguer that answers all arguments and doesn't pick and choose spots where I can just hit people over the head. So I end up reading and posting large walls of text. If I'm arguing with an idiot it drains me more because I feel like I'm wasting my time, whereas if I'm arguing with someone who's intelligent and knowledgable I know I'm getting more than just a feeling of superiority out of the exchange.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    This is commendable, and I wish that more people would actually do this. Doing otherwise is a quick way to make me disengage. It's not intimidating; at its worst, it's dishonest.

    An explicit (or, I guess, implicit) recognition of valid points makes for a halfway respectful discussion and makes it clear that one's actually trying to discuss the subject at hand and arrive at the best possible ideas, rather than simply trying to defend themselves.

    This place is pretty mild compared to INTPc and INTJf. As a guess, some would cry on those sites.

    Yep. There is. Read it again. You can't just redefine terms at will and expect to make a coherent argument. It's called equivocation.

    Oh please. Case study wtf.
    All you have stated is the blindingly obvious.
    This thread was created, in part, to prove the same. I'm sorry that wasn't obvious to you.

    Although I now understand your reason for insulting me.
    The bold seems questionable. Marmalade Sunrise and Silly Sappiene come to mind.
