    I apologize for the lack of clarity. The vagueness was intentional - I didn't want to include much in the way of details pertaining to a third party's difficulties.
    Possibly. I definitely get bored when things are running too smoothly and I do find myself looking for new problems to resolve. I would guess this too be fairly true for any NT though. Is it not?

    Hmm. The only times I actively spoiled for a fight was when I was otherwise in a bad place. Then my attitude becomes "If I cant have what I want Ill burn the whole thing down." If Im bored with a pet project Ill just take on a new one, or tweak the old idea.

    In the case the OP described, if these women were really a problem then Id just do what was necessary to take them out and move on. Im not a fan of mess...or idiots.

    Exactly what I would do.

    You're in charge of a business. That business has a problem and there's nothing more pressing at the moment. To ignore it would be irresponsible, and to be irresponsible would provide a bad model for your present employees.

    The possibility that he enjoys this is irrelevant, and I find the circular argument (he's an idiot, he did this thing, so it's idiotic, and so he's an idiot) insulting. Do your INTP thing and research the possibilities a little more, hmm?

    Also, legal battles are fun. Some people are just unenlightened

    Of course legal battles can be fun.
    Hell, mine was better than sex.

    But the question was asked:
    "exhilarating simply because it was a new problem to resolve?"

    That's very specific.

    Hell, that's as idiotic as suggesting ENTJs would blow up their house,
    just so they had a new problem to resolve.

    ENTJs are goal-oriented. Efficient.

    I don't grow weeds in my back yard, just so I have something to pull.

    Dear lord - I'm sorry so many of you were offended by my calling him a "stupid ENTJ." That's just the way things come across in Internet conversations. It's a by-product of the nature of our relationship. He's my boyfriend (FWIW, I hate that term), OK? But we delight in insulting the hell out of one another. I wouldn't be with him if I thought he was an idiot, but I was bemused by his reaction.

    It was very specific. Now please tell me where I implied I was of the opinion he had created the problem in order to amuse himself.

    One of the other things my friend has been mentioning lately is that he needs to stop taking himself so seriously.

    Where did I say you implied he created the problem for amusement?
    My bottom line is, I can't identify with any of it.
    I can't even identify with taking myself too seriously.
    I have a healthy sense of humor.
    But then we all don't have the same functions developed.

    I wasn't offended, Norepinephrine. But it's true, us ENTJs do sometimes have a tendency to get rather worked up about stuff.
