    Yeah I don't know, I said stay on the rope because if they decide to save me with a helicopter that can't hold all the people they want to save they better have another idea going on and I'll wait for that one. No reason for me to be deciding my fate without complete information.

    I would cut the rope/get off the ladder. I'd want to push my chances to save the most number of people...and I'd actually favor my chances up on the mountain.

    Oh, and you can't be surprised that NFs are looking at the grey area and alternate possibilities .

    With any luck, I would be climbing with a bunch of ISTPs. Since they are excellent in this type of situation (and I am not), I would let them figure out what to do.

    Any choice that does not involve falling. But I'll go with the choice that says I scream load enough to wake myself from a nightmare.

    Note to self: Do not be in life-or-death situations with NFs.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    If I was certain that the ladder wouldn't hold, then I'd cut the rope and take my chances on the mountain in the hope that other rescue efforts would come.

    Why? I don't really know. I just don't think I could bring myself to do anything else. I've never been in what I'd call a life-or-death situation before, but my experience in highly emotional and tense times is that I take control, and making a sacrifice for other people is what I instinctively do first before I look back on it later and think "maybe I shouldn't have done that". I don't know, maybe in a situation like that fear and desperation would get the better of me; I certainly wouldn't want to die that's for sure, but if it was that or drag everyone down to die with me? I think I'd take my chances with the mountain and, assuming I survived the fall from the cut ladder, probably feel very sorry for myself afterwards.

    Edit: I'm taking this question theoretically as it was meant, because as others have pointed out, there are a lot of possibilities not mentioned or considered in the OP. I'm resisting the urge to nit-pick. Be proud of me.

    *antsy to find out how the rope is doing in other sections*

    Uhhh... this is so boring of me. I would just stay on the mountain and hope they sent another chopper. No falling! Ouch.

    Plus, if I froze in a crazy position I could convince later generations of.... something!
