    Default IXFPs are surprisingly capable of tremendous acts of evil

    I read somewhere that IXFP’s are surprisingly capable of tremendous acts of evil - more so than any other type. However they tend to be incapable of bringing these realities to fruition. It's an Fi dom thing that is at the root of this.

    Any truth to this? Thoughts/opinions?

    I'm sorry, I was just thinking it was hilarious to imagine that IxFP disorganisation and bad follow-through are the central impediments to their potential villainy - "you know, if I could only get my shit together I could be truly evil".

    I don't personally feel capable of tremendous acts of evil; I'm just not angry and hateful enough to plot out the demise of others, nor do I typically feel any satisfaction in watching people suffer or fail. So basically, if you don't have the drive, and the pay off isn't going to fulfil you, you're not really inclined to go down that road.

    OTOH, I can perhaps see why that has been said. I'm pretty good at figuring out people. I can spot the chinks in the armour, or the soft underbelly, or the things that matters most to them in the world. I suppose there is that potential that a IxFP could use those weaknesses to not only hurt, but completely crush another human being. I almost never to go for those sore spots, even in the heat of the moment; even when I'm completely losing my temper and not exactly thinking straight, I know that those parts are below the belt, and will consciously avoid going for them. In my mind those kinds of attacks are so far beyond the line it would sick to go there, even when the other person might be doing everything they can to hurt you in return. It's like the physical fights I used to have with my sister when we were kids: she would often hit me as hard as she could, but I never hit her with my full strength, even when I was infuriated - because I knew just how much harder I could hit.

    I can only think of a few occasions where I've crossed that line. Mostly it was when I was a child, and it was pretty tame in the scheme of things. I didn't boil a bunny or anything.

    I've been called "devil, tempter, seducer, evil" more times than I can remember. Granted, women were the ones that called me that. I can see the inherent + honed manipulation of the psyche to such an influential degree that it becomes a sort of "black magic" of its own. At least its a black magic to those who are being influenced.

    While I've never been actively malicious, I have from a pretty early age carried a sense of containing the full range of human potentialities inside, but also believe it's a universal thing. It's every individual's power and responsibility. In that way, hearing that I'm capable of evil is no newsflash, but so are you.

    This thread only validates what I've known all along, which is that, even though ExTJs have a bad rap for being evil in an organized and successful way, IxFPs are just as evil as we are... but quieter about it.

    That's why the ExTJ/IxFP couple pairing is so frequent: complementary forms of evil!

    I once molested a cat, sexually harassed a 13 year boy, gaslighted someone, slapped someone, verbally abused someone and I nearly killed my mother.
