    This is a pain. I want to speak up, but know from experience that when I do, there WILL be an important logical or objective Thing I have missed. Or didn't care about. Or already understand and actually agree with, but just can't address articulately.

    If anyone has similar experiences, how do you hold your ground and stay credible to others (and maybe even yourself if you're low on confidence) when the person you're talking to has found the Thing?

    I am of the opinion that you are definitely INFP, whether you prefer to look at the cognitive functions or the plain ol' dichotomies - either way, it works.

    Not that I noticed. Thanks.

    You know it's not always correct. But yes, not much point arguing with it.

    Yes, I am quite certain that I am.

    I know I can be a vicious, vindictive bastard if pushed enough. The problem is my conscience always comes back to bite me in the ass later.

    As to the OP. A scene from the movie Apocalypse now comes to mind, called The Horror. In the end, lots of types can suspend their morality-humanity and even their reason, to achieve their own agenda.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.

    Psychological evil, yes, or we could even say psychic evil. But let's be sure not to confuse capability with tendency. You might as well call XFP psychic, and anything you're capable of doing with that power is possible.

    I really agree with this. Somehow, I find it easy to empathize with others because I feel as though everyone has the potential to do great harm or good.

    It's like Dumbledore said. "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

    So suck it if I do have dark twisted thoughts.

    This isn't surprising though...really.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
