    I dunno. I was raised from a very young age to understand that it is wrong to "tattle tale" or "narc" on others.

    I've been in enough situations where I probably should have blown the whistle. I witnessed the wrestlers at my old college shooting up steroids, but I didn't blow the whistle then. I lived with a drug dealer/loan shark and I didn't blow the whistle then. I even worked at a hotel where I witnessed the employees stealing from the employer but of course, I didn't blow the whistle.

    I think it probably takes balls and moral conviction to blow the whistle, neither of which I have, so I must be a bad INFJ. :(

    yeah, me too

    i've just been the observer most times

    as long as those people don't piss me off, no one else would know

    i think that is what makes me so sociable with people though; they don't piss me off, i don't narc on them

    heck, i would even smoke cannabis with 'em

    I hear you guys. I'm no a narc either, and even when angry I'm more likely to just confront them, being in someones face and telling them off(cursing them out) and leaving them in a frightened and confused daze is much more satisfying then telling. It also makes you feel bigger, or maybe that's just me.

    It is their choice whether to do cannabis or not. Personally, I don't think it should be illegal.

    Sounds like you enjoy deluding yourself. Fe outbreaks?

    If you mean the feeling bigger part,then yeah, probably. If you can get me angry enough to get to that point, then I don't care if I think I'm the Incredible Hulk (I'm so going to watch it in two weeks.). All I'm aware of is that someone has pushed me into a point of such frustration, that I can't do anything until that frustration is dealt with.

    This may seem selfish, but it doesn't do me or anyone I'm around any good, If I'm too stressed to out to function.

    I can relate. I have outbursts that can only be described as "histrionic" when somebody has pushed just the right buttons to piss me off. Until they know how frustrated I am, I can't rest. That seems to happen more online that off though. Probably because people are more outspoken and less reserved about hurting others feelings online.
