Haha, maybe there should be an encyclopedia for the types of trolls on the internet and how to react to them by only using Shakespeare quotes. The first chapter would be called "It is the green-ey'd monster, which doth mock". The second could be titled "Lord, what fools these mortals be".ENTPs It has a different feel to it, where the troll is slightly arrogant in a cute, desperate way instead of being sadistic or doing it solely for entertainment.
So could we view trolling as a lesser art when compared to oneupmanship, satire, etc. Could trolling be seen as a garage band while Voltaire and his work would be seen as an evolution of trolling for a greater purpose. Or is trolling just a cheap imitation of the individual listed above?No, I never troll. People who know me would say I do it all the time, but that's not true. Trolling is done for the sake of the enjoyment of pissing someone off. I do it for the mind games themselves. If nobody ever got bored or offended, I would be extremely happy. In fact, the people who take it and give it right back are the ones I tend to like the most. If the price of finding such connections is an eternal grudge from some random ISFJ or similar, so be it.
I am beginning to think that many of the INTP's here view trolling as a cruder version of their more sophisticated play. Is it safe to say that trolling is viewed as not being worth the effort, since it is too easy? What would you guys call the step up from trolling? I think I should have titled this thread along the lines of what another poster mentioned. Which personality type if so inclined, would make the most effective troll?I'll sometimes crack jokes, but I never really "troll." It just doesn't entertain me.
