I have just thought up a forum, text-based game that I think would thrive in a setting packed with INTJs. The game is played by one poster posting an odd or hard to defend proposition, and the next person arguing for that idea. The poster must then propose their idea and the next person must argue for it and so on. Given that INTJs are known for never backing down in debates or arguments, I think this might go down well, especially to those attempting to improve their critical reasoning skills.

You can respond to previous arguments, however, you must answer the above poster and you must propose a point for the next poster, to ensure the flow of the thread.

Let's get started:

Trolling on the internet promotes unity.

Well, of course it's true. Trolling is a team sport. If people have a common goal, they will work together to reach it(in this case being to annoy everyone possible). Trolls find each other's company amazing and love getting together to have troll-offs.

Love is the most powerful force in the universe.

(Love this thread idea, by the way.)

No, it's bad because people die.

Love is powerful, but it is equal to the power of hate. As strong as a love exists, there is an equally potent hatred. Both are motivators that can unite a country to do great or horrific things. Both are driving forces that can move mountains. A man may kill and die for both. Pure love is strong because it is something beyond human nature, but pure hatred is just as strong because it's a primal part of human nature.


The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Genocide should not be a war crime. It is a respectable form of controlling citizens, and should be treated as such. I mean, they don't consider mass killings for politics genocide, so why should anything else count? If that's okay, then the rest is too.

Of course so. Humans are not naturally evil, and the road to Hell they're on is due to events that they themselves have rationalized.

Windows based operating systems are better than Linux-based.
Windows is a much better OS because it can play many more video-games without too many unnecessary programs, and most programs are optimized for Windows, not Linux.

Animal testing is okay, even if the animals are harmed in the process.

Marriage is defined as a union between a man and a woman.

It's okay to kill someone important for money and power.

Gay marriage should not be legalized.
Acceptance of gays means an increase in the number of gay couples and, as follows, a decrease in the number of straight couples. At some point down the road this could mean that there are so few straight couples that each generation gets smaller and smaller due to the decrease of mating between sexes. Humanity eventually dies out.

The government should have the right to monitor and censor whoever and whatever it wants.

Well... YOLO.... (jk, shoot me now)

It's for the greater good of our society, for protection and control. We're only saving our citizens from destruction at the hands of terrorists.

Communism should not be shunned.

Exactly. A system where the workers control the means of production is a step towards stopping corporatism. In that sense we can keep corporations from the govt and maintain the rights of citizens as well as protecting evrey worker from abuse at the hands of companies. Secondly, materialism could be curtailed allowing us to enjoy each others company and rediscover the individual.

Abortion should be made illegal.

Just put the kid up for adoption. Problem solved.

It makes people feel good, so does alcohol. What's the difference? Besides, it's their body, they should get to decide what to do with it. It's not our place to make that decision for them.

A set "Drinking age" should be abolished completely.

Yes, there is a market to be filled, people will buy whatever you regularize it or not, better would be to legalize it and charge controlling the outcome and people who can use it, it can even drop the number of people using it if the price makes the illegal dealers unprofitable and there is a bureaucratic hindrance to get it, or you play with the market with your monopoly breaking them when they start and rise the price up again.


You are gay.

Sexual orientation is largely a societal construct. This is demonstrated by the communities in which homosexuality is actively approved of, such as ancient Greece. In those societies, there is a far greater incidence of homosexuality. So, even if you think you are heterosexual, you would be likely to be gay in societies that encourage it.

It is a great idea to shoot wolves from helicopters.

Agreed, they are a dangerous predator. Putting humans in a one on one confrontation with them is dangerous to hunters since wolves travel in packs.

Hitting a child to discipline them is for character.

If wolves are ravaging your livestock, you need to be able protect your lively-hood. Eliminating them from the air protects you from attack during this process.


Organ transplants should be provided to the adults in need, regardless of their health history, before being offered to children.

Yes, adults are contributing now and have earned the right to keep living.

People should need a license to vote, irrespective of age (a five year old could vote provided it had passed the test).

Well, as long as they understand the importance of politics, why shouldn't they be allowed to test for a license to vote?

Humanity has done no wrong.
