    In general, that's my natural approach.... but what do you do, then, if someone refuses to rein themselves in, and they've actively hurting others?

    Typical NT "everyone fends for themselves" doesn't work for other types nearly as well; some people WILL get victimized. And maybe you can just do the good ol' NT-"detachamundo" trick... but NFs tend to be horribly empathetic and can't disconnect or draw boundaries there.

    I wonder if this use of "bitch" is something that also exists in other languages. The commonness of it, I mean. I see no equivalent whatsoever in Dutch...

    So INTP's have to be antisocial, neurotic and selfcentered?

    And is it considered to be offensive in Spanish?
    In Dutch the literal version would be awfully offensive. I am curious to know why people are willing to accept it in English...

    If someone is actively hurting others (you can tell), I will resolve the problem. You cannot argue with rabid dogs.

    This is so rare that it almost never happens. People usually get the idea if you chastise them severely enough and quickly enough.

    Really?

    Maybe we should make you a mod for a day.

    I can only see the net results being positive in SOME way.
