    Default Fake logic

    If you're a Thinking type, have you ever made up something in a conversation or argument and presented it as logical, even though you knew it wasn't logical, just to see how far you could get away with it? Under what circumstances did/would you do it?

    I've done it 237 times as I recall.

    Never on purpose; however, when I do paint myself into a logical corner and know it before the people I'm arguing with, I usually slam on the semantics acrobatics and am most times successful in reframing or redefining the question at hand in order to get me out. It's rather satisfying.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I just love annoying the hell out of my Philosophy major friend by arguing with him that various inanimate objects have free will. It drives him crazy because he uses the exact same arguments to state that he himself has free will...and they're no less applicable to anything else.

    I'll tease people with bombastic rhetoric in the middle of a discussion to entertain myself. NTP's will sometimes chuckle, most everyone else will think im weird.

    When the Ne gets out in front of the Ti its fun to come up with the most ridiculous explanation possible.

    In certain situations, I have used the usual tricks of redefining questions, inventing and using long words, twisting the meaning of words to win arguments or to confuse my "opponent" long enough for me to win. This is usually done with a smug smile. Hehe. It's quite enjoyable too.

    Well...maybe...

    Isn't this just a higher form of bullshitting?
    High-brow bullshitting if you will!

    I've done it with tall girls, small girls and nuns.
    It's because I like all topics, and people, and reasons,
    That logical bullshitting never goes out of season.
