^^^ Yep. That was a Star Wars reference.
I have this history with revenge. It doesn't happen often that I go into full-on "destroy" mode, but when it does...eh. I think you know where that goes.
It's not so much revenge for those who have hurt me- there have been plenty of those who have hurt me and walked away unscathed due to my long, long process of repeated forgiveness and "second" chances...
It's those who have severely crossed my inner moral boundaries that I seek revenge upon. It's the ones who treat others unjustly and get away with it. Those who bully others and are never stood up to. Those who cheat, lie, or steal and aren't brought to justice. Those who hurt the weak and innocent and aren't held accountable.
It's then that I snap. I can't let it go. I must seek justice. I can't focus on anything other than bringing them out of power, or bringing their misdeeds to light. I've gotten people fired. I'll call the police. I'll petition to ban them from whatever arena they act unjustly in. And I don't rest until I know that justice has been served.
I'm under the impression that this is actually typical for most INFJs. I've read about situations like these in many, many different dialogues, threads and articles.
But I've yet to answer this question: Why??
What is it, functionally, that causes INFJs to act in this way?
What causes the intense moral compass?
And what causes the intense objection to injustice?
Additionally, I'd love to hear personal examples of cases in which you've taken "revenge."
How do you do it?
Why do you do it?
What makes you snap?
What happens when you do snap?
Never underestimate the power of the INFJ.
