    Default SJ's, are you good at twisting words/ annalyzing conversations?

    I'm an ISTJ, and I can pick apart most flaws in an argument or conversation, as well as really twisting the words right out of a persons mouth. I can't think of any specific examples, but I use it mostly for fun. I take an innoculous bit of conversation, mess with it, and send them on spirals of justifications before they catch on. I wanted to know if this were an SJ thing, or just something personal.

    EDIT: Also, picking out the flaws in arguments or papers no matter how inane, is something i'm good at. Generally, I am a good person to run argumentative papers by.

    I do that from time to time.

    It's definitely fun.

    ...Except for instances in which the tables are turned.

    Ohhh, so much fun. The tables aren't turned very much. I like forming arguments. It's enjoyable many times.

    I've had that happen a few times, not often, but a few. It's something else.

    Sounds like me. I like to point out how they are trying to justify their F'ed up beliefs or ideas as well. haha

    I think SJ's can pick apart the flaws in most anything.

    Yeah I find it fun as well. A few situation, through, I think the other party was trying to say something using analogy, but the analogy had a big hole in it.

    I normally don't post here because I only post if I have questions or something worthwhile to contribute. That's in case you're wondering why a forum noob posted a thread out of nowhere.

    Now back on topic. This is enlightening for me. It seems as a general rule from the responses, SJ's, and ISTJ's in particular, can see the flaws in conversations, and thing's in general. The bonus of this in my mind is that if you run a plan by one of us, we can remove most of the flaws and the end product comes out with highly improved quality. The negative side is the fact that if not carefully monitored, this trait could express itself by creating a negitive view of the world, where one see's only flaws. Essentially poisoning a person's perspective. I'd appreciate feedback on what you all think of this.

    In general I have found that ISTJ's are the most difficult people to argue with because they are 100 percent convinced they are never wrong. So, it hardly is an argument but more of an attack. Just my two cents.
