    But when you make statements about long-term effects, dependencies, etc, you are plain wrong.
    I have made no statements about long-term effects or dependencies without backing up those statements with direct links to WebMD or other medical sites.

Ritalin works in the ADD brain WAY different than in the non-ADD brain. Nor am I some superman exempt for these supposed long-term effects.
    I hear what you're saying, but the same could be said for any chemical substance. The fact that some people have little to no harmful effects from smoking is not to say that smoking is good for human bodies, or that it should be generally promoted as safe.

That would not have happened if I had been diagnosed and properly medicated earlier. Nothing you say or any narcissistic doctor can say will ever change the facts of my life.
    I'm sorry to hear that, and can't begin to imagine the relief you've found after such a difficult life experience.

    I was a member of CHADD prior to some of my own experiences. We just don't agree. Which is cool.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    You're already using this against me, so I will reveal a little of my thinking. You do this on purpose to send a message. Don't hire this guy to destory me, he's fucking crazy. Most people would never get this behavior because most people would not go out of their way to find and push these buttons.

    Am I right?

    Oh, and I don't want to destroy you. I not that unbelievably selfish. You sometimes push just the right buttons to make me say words that might allude to it. But it's all hot air.

    The difference between an ISTP and an ENTJ , on an interaction level, is actually not that big. Both have Te in the ego block. It's just that one has Te as leading function, the other has Te as creative.

    It is not worthwhile to convince either type that they are wrong when they are confident.

    If you're interested however, you can stop an ISTP on its track when they're on a roll, by putting in an Ne-joke. Take one of the points and link it to another context in a humorous way. If you can link it to something Si related, it will be irresistible.

    Of course it is. The ISTP always stores away information...even that they consider to be incorrect...to be used later in case matters change.

    So...definitely worthwhile to the ISTP....maybe not as worthwhile to the other frustrated party.

    And yes, humor can be a track-stopper.

    Just don't mess with my Ritalin!

    Yeah, Yeah, you can have your Ritalin.

    I'm fine with vitamins.

    Playing nice always seems a contradiction in terms.

    Does this mean will continue to play dirty? Don't do that. This will take a turn for the worse.
