    And this is exactly the point. NTs do not usually have a problem with the idea of absolutes, so long as those absolutes are decided upon and expressed by the NT in question. When someone else (whether NT or otherwise) starts expressing absolutes then the argument begins. This is the case even when the "absolute" expressed is something the NT happens to agree with. They call it playing devil's advocate


    Another tip on baiting NTs: call an NT or an opinion/theory expressed by an NT "conventional".

    Where on earth did you ever learn how to fight dirty like that?

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Why would you purposely try to bait someone into an argument? The only reason I argue with someone is if they say something that I know is wrong, or illogical. Then I ask them to explain themselves and I show my proof as to why that line of thinking is flawed and they either agree with me or I agree with them or we agree to disagree, or in some instances I write them off as no more intelligent than a pack animal. But I don't "bait" someone into an argument that is immature and irrational.
    Question everything especially yourself.

    but for us irrationals it's hilarious and great for a laugh. by the way, the more it annoys you, the more fun it is.
