    Actually, INFPs should be able to identify the thing that would be most evil to say to someone in any given situation. Healing/hurting are two sides of the same coin...

    I can use them playfully, or hurtfully, both with extreme effect.

    Any shit about NFs not being good with insults is a myth.
    I put both of my ENTP friends to shame, no contest.


    Ditto on every count.

    True. True.

    I concur......based on my 7 years with an INFP.

    I suck at comebacks if personally attacked or insulted! I am a dear in headlights.

    I am good at making a witty comeback remark if the person makes fun of someone or something else-I can put a person wittingly in their place then but if it is to me then I am so emotionally charged I freeze.

    I go blank and am overwhelmed.

    I hate that so much actually!

    Luckily I am married to an ENTP-king of comebacks- and me being an INFJ I try to think of every kind of situation possible where I might need a witty comeback and we practice together and I write the winners down,lol.
    I try to be prepared now,lol.

    As a person who is constantly observing people and who understands them on a deep level (at least I always try to), I could hurt them the most by telling them some ugly truths. I (almost) never do that for the sake of insulting itself. However, what I do a lot is that I explain the actions of the other person to them as an attempt to fix the problem/argument. Granted, sometimes I fail, but most often my "victim" (haha) feels embarrassed and exposed.

    For example, a friend used a specific word I had never heard before. I openly admitted that. I'm always happy to learn a new word! However, he didn't leave it at that. He feels inferior about his language skills / vocabulary (compared to me). As soon as he knew something I didn't, he started to do research on that very word and explained with careful detail how it's not even a rare word and how everyone knows it, etc. He was very passive-aggressive about it. To me it was so obvious as to why he was doing all that... so I explained it to him. It sure silenced him.

    I think I'm pretty good at insulting people, it just depends on how much you have hurt me (IRL). I have a limit to what is acceptable as an insult, ie I would never use something that I know would really hurt that person beyond repair, which may make me less vicious than a T type in my insults, but I can usually read enough about a person to use less yet still scathingly hurtful insults to do the job.

    Like if a person was fat and very aware of it I would not use that as a weapon in an arguement, nor would I use past mistakes they may have made that bring them great pain in remembering, it's just too low for me to go.

    (this will make no sense to some but I find it easier to just punch someone than use those insults)

    Mind you certain people, and that's less than a handful, have actually made me so angry that I have gone that low, but they more than deserved it and their feelings were no longer a part of my concerns.

    Online it's less personal therefore much easier to get into an insultfest, however I have noticed that I also won't sink below a line even then.

    Yes, when I'm in the proper mood. However, I often have trouble maintaining a sustained effort at it. And going up against NTs for long periods of time can be exhausting.

    People get upset with me because I never apologize (unless it's minor, like stepping on your foot). I will resolve the matter, but an apology is hard to pull out.

    I will go that low, but I have to have lost all concern for them as a person too. There's someone if I ran into right now, I could say some low & cruel things to without blinking an eye.

    I'm not very good at insulting people simply because I know how it would make those people feel, and I can feel for them. However if I do have to, I can usually think up some pretty good insults because I am a good observer of the behaviours of people around me, and I know things like what they do bad at.

    Comebacks, usually bad because it's a very in the moment type thing, I'm better at thinking them up after they are needed (afterism)
