    In terms of debate and arguments id say I'm actually pretty gracious in losing, during i'm inwardly focused and somewhat emotionally invested. I really value sound reasoning and intelligence, so in the event of a loss I'm actually somewhat happy because I learned something new and also figured out some weaknesses of my own.

    In the physical realm though, I'm probably the worst loser (all is fair in love and war right?) but it's usually a short intense anger that again is directed more inwardly. I think that it's sort of a Jon Mccenroe type drive that is expressed more positively externally but maybe just as negative internally.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Well, there's a situation that can make me quite upset, it's when you're in a team game, and that someone in your own team plays so bad he/she eventually ruins all our efforts.

    During those moments, I tend to be less understanding. :steam: But when I'm only the only one involved, I usually don't care about losing.

    Never been called a sore loser, and I don't think I ever have been a sore loser. People used to get annoyed by my constant attempts to get them to let me redo one of my moves that I made five turns beforehand, but over time that's transformed into inward criticism. "I can't believe I did that" is my new "Wait, I forgot to do something last turn".

    I have an ENTJ friend who's a huge sore loser though. He even gets sore when his opposition doesn't try hard enough to make his presumptuously inevitable win gratifying. He always needs to get the last shot in too. I remember playing "sawdust tag" with him in IA back in high school and he didn't get me once. So, frustrated and covered in sawdust, he went to the back room and filled my backpack with sawdust.

    Well...

    Cheating against INTPs can be a delectable hobby.

    That's exactly the kind of cheating I'm talking about and that makes me go absolutely crazy :steam: I'll keep on repeating the match until there's a "fair" result.

    It really depends. I HATE to lose at fighting games, and stupid things like that, so I tend to stay away from that sort. boardgames I have NO problem losing I always have fun with them.

    When debating, I generally don't feel I've lost anything. If I didn't state my case well enough, it's because I have a lot to learn, in which case I'm more likely to sit and listen to the other person.

    If I believe strongly in a subject though, I can be a bit of a brick wall about the whole thing. Even if it didn't make sense to be so stubborn about it, I'd still be.
