It's something of an internet forum cliché, in my experience, that, if there's a single MBTI type most often associated with treating debates/discussions/etc. as games and being willing to take insincere positions, throw things out just to get a reaction, bullshit people and so on, it's the ENTP. By contrast, I think a typical INTJ engaged in a debate — especially if it's an issue they care much about or think there's a right and wrong perspective on — is more likely to come off as earnestly authentic, and demonstrate a drive to not only let people know what they really think, but also to try to change the mind of anybody who doesn't understand or otherwise has the wrong view. INTPs are one letter away from ENTPs and one letter away from INTJs but, in this case, I think it's the J/P that makes the most difference — making INTPs more like ENTPs than INTJs in this regard. ...
And I'd say INFJs are even more earnest than INTJs, and that INFPs are more like INTJs and INFJs than NTPs in this respect. If an INFP is insincerely playing devil's advocate, they're not likely to hide it.
I completely agree. That is why I used the words "likely to feel remorse" to describe NFPs, and "less likely to care" to describe NTPs. I used the word likely to present my ideas as generalizations, and not absolutes.
well they trolled you I tell ya what XD.I voted for ENTP, because I wanted to vote for the proper troll. :wink:. I just don't get how INTJ got votes.
