    Care to elaborate further on that? Do you mean something along the lines of: how much do (good or bad) intentions figure into how we think about the resulting impact of those words/actions?

If say the universe has a center that all mass rotates around or moves away from and where all matter eventualy returns to after it loses its momentum from the big bang or whatever, then is it not logical that if you initate time travel from lets say, your living room. And you go back in time by about a fraction of a second, that you would then find yourself in your neighbours basement due to the distance the planet has traveled in relation to the anchor of the universe.
    Sounds reasonable.

    Similarily, if you travelled 2 days back in time you might find yourself floating in space, feeling a little chilly and short on oxygen.

    I was actually given this label when I was found one morning sleeping on the hotel window sill under the sun.
    They then realised how often I do this, thus - I am now a group's pet cat.

    Intent matters more. That is where I become unforgiving.

    We should judge based on a mixture of each, but mostly impact. Intent isn't magical, and seemingly harmless actions can have a huge impact.

    Are you afraid what might happen if you decide on something evil without realizing it?

    When did this happen for the last time (how old were you?)

    I am not sure if I am answering this correctly, but I know occasionally I get haunted by an idea and I am afraid I will do it without realizing it. In my last apartment there was a garbage shoot and I was forever worried that I would accidentally drop my pet bunny down it. So everytime I went to throw garbage I would triple check where she was.

    Intent contextualizes impact. It can be pretty important.

    Decide or do something "evil"? I'm likely to heavily consider the moral implications of a decision before I make it or act on it... Like I've mentioned many times, I feel like I have a kind of predetermined ideal model in my head that I've built & refined over time, and it's so thorough & intricate only occasionally do I meet with something novel enough to make me ruminate on it for awhile to understand how/where it generally fits into or alters that model. I do this through fantasy as much as direct analysis... I've realized that daydream plays a massive role in exploring where things fall on the good/bad spectrum.

    I'm not really afraid of either then. I think I tend to see myself as doing the right thing as best as I could determine at the time, and I realize that hindsight is 20/20 so I can't beat myself up too much if a decision results in something bad. I certainly will evaluate my past actions to learn from them & won't excuse myself where I fell short, but it's not fair to judge yourself based on a deeper understanding or additional knowledge you now have that you didn't then (it's kind of how we tend to morally judge people in the past based on modern values; not entirely fair). Other times, you do know better, and so you can't claim you didn't realize it at all.

    I can be worried about not living up to my own standards (or external ones I've recognized as important) & may feel intense shame when I cannot. I worry more about failing to be good enough than being outright bad by mistake.

    Ambivalent.

    Like others have said intentions matter a lot. If someone does something wrong or inconsiderate I often try to work out what their possible motivations could have been, so as to not unfairly judge their behaviour. However, sometimes intentions explain, but do not excuse, bad behaviour; you can't always ignore the negative impact of something that was done for positive reasons. Good intentions devoid of reasonable awareness or forethought can be particularly dangerous.

    How are your interactions with INTPs? Do you get along well with us or not? Be honest here. I ask because in some ways I think INTP and INFP look similar on the surface- shared auxilary Ne but in terms of the dominant function, which is introverted they are worlds apart.
