    You took the words right out of my mouth.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.

    It's more like a circle with entps, not like a square in pulp-fiction but equally so

    I have been making so many mistakes lately. Now, mostly they've been either emotional, physical, or navigational, which are specific things that I know I'm not very good at and therefore have accepted that I'm going to make mistakes. In the last week, I've made out with one of my best friends, badly burned myself, banged my head on a drawer, stubbed my toe several times, and gotten lost like 5 times. Clearly, the first mistake was the biggest, but I think I handled it.

    Of course, mistakes like those aren't what you're talking about. In intellectual discussions, I'm either right, or will admit that I might not be up front. I'll say "I could be wrong, but I think Azerbaijan neighbors Armenia." If I'm not 100% confident that I'm right, especially in a moral issue, I will not act upon anything, and I won't claim to know what I'm talking about. Even if it makes me look like an ass, I will usually fight a moral issue to the death . I should mention that all political issues are essentially moral issues, and for anything that has an objectively right or wrong answer (like the geography thing above), I'll concede as soon as some authority (read: wikipedia) makes itself known.

    I take my pacifism very seriously. I would likely let the police handle it. I believe very strongly that two wrongs do not add up to a right. I don't see the difference between justice and vengeance. I'd make sure he doesn't kill again by making sure he ends up in prison. If the courts fail me, I'd probably break his ankles or something to make sure he doesn't kill again.

    I know what I'm supposed to say. I'm supposed to say "I'd call the cops, let the justice system work it out." And it's overwhelmingly likely that I would do that. But, assuming that hypothetical man did it, went to trial and was (wrongly) found innocent?


    I'd kill him. How? Ideally the same way he killed my loved one, but killing him in a manner such that I could get away with it would be paramount. The eventual method would be a result of careful consideration between how close I could emulate his crime while giving me the best chance to cover up my tracks.

    That probably sounds very morbid, but it's true. Some things I won't let go of.

    Stop picking on us, OK?! Or one of us is going to snap on you.

    How's that for an emo outburst?

    I heard a rumour about this: on the internet they edit their post, so it looks like they were right all along and simply had problems explaining their point to others.

    I can't do this kind of thing without a long period of planning. Assuming he won't change his mind and considering he can't be arrested for mere desires, I think the best option is killing the person, but, if I did it myself, I'd probably be too nervous to cover my tracks properly. The best option, imo, would be hiring a pro. Oh, and pay in cash. I have a cop friend that would probably either do or know someone that would get the job done. If i had to do it myself, I'd need a clean gun, as I would need to be in a possessed state to resort to agonizing or overly bloody methods. If both options are impossible, the other option is vanish, leaving away friends and jobs, and hope the man won't find us.

    Haha. Yeah, we do that too. Not to be "right". Just because we realize that we went off on some wild tangent and didn't even answer the person's question. We got off point, which, I know I'm prone to do. And then we read it back and go, "What was I thinking in that post! I should probably answer their question." At least that's what I did when I edited my post on "P-ness".

    If an INTP has edited a post to make themselves appear more "right" (rather than to simply get back on topic), then let the evidence be shown! What? You have no evidence? Away with you!

    We aint perfect. We human.
