    Default INTJs: If you get angry you lose

    Any INTJs relate?

    Yep.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'm not an INTJ, but I definitely hold that principle dearly. You'd be simply amazed how much anger impairs judgment. Inducing anger is a relatively effective interrogation technique.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Some people think passion is anger.
    It's not.

    Yes I relate, though the only person who can really lead me into this predicament is my best friend. And only on very few topics.

    What if the anger is instrumental?

    I'm not sure I understand. If you mean that you use anger to further some other response within yourself (ie. anger as motivation), then I suppose that would be an exception.

    In the context of a debate or discussion, I'm inclined to agree with Jaguar. We see many of the same mannerisms from anger exhibited in passion, so it's only natural that they be somewhat confusing. Passion however, doesn't always cloud judgment and mental facilities like anger generally does.
