Troll: “When it comes to the internet, a troll refers to someone’s whose sole goal is to argue with others for their own enjoyment.”
I remember once seeing a topic on an MBTI forum that I visit, and it posed the question “Which MBTI type makes the best troll?” After seeing a few replies, I (using my intuition) noticed a pattern was emerging. Almost everybody suggested the same thing- that NT’s make better trolls than SF’s. This much was pretty obvious, as intuitive people are more likely to rebel against rules by thinking out of the box- doing something that sensors wouldn’t dare of. They are also good at thinking of ideas of how to do something on the internet that hasn’t been done, which is often where trolls emerge from. Thinkers are also most likely to be trolls as they are less feeling orientated; they care less about harmony and they can cause a little chaos without feeling guilty. However, what surprised me is there was no definite answer as to the other two letters. So I made a post, where I created a theory as to which troll was the best:
NT TROLLS= BEST TROLLS
INTJ- MASTERMIND TROLL. Most are often even unaware this type is a troll… until… This troll will often do one or two things that they plan out with their Ni, which completely shocks everyone. They will troll only once or twice, but the mark they leave is bigger than other types…
ENTJ- CONTROLLING TROLLS. This troll will completely disregard the rules and not worry at all about others. They are serious when they are trolling, and will often troll for their own benefit. This type is most likely to troll on a forum that they don’t agree with in the aim of making others feel inferior to them and for their own benefit.
ENTP- CRAZY TROLL. This troll is the troll that will spam every threat, make a joke in every comment and just troll as much as possible to get satisfaction and enjoyment from trolling. They want to be heard. They are the opposite to INTJ’s. Whilst INTJ’s troll once or twice thoroughly planning it out, ENTP’s will troll everywhere possible to become the worst troll possible, in a more spontaneous matter.
INTP- UNPREDICTABLE TROLL. I find this troll the funniest to be honest. Mainly because you don’t expect this person to be a troll. They don’t post a lot of comments, and they don’t plan out their trolling. They just talk when they feel like it, and shock the others with their completely oblivious comments.
So really, I think it depends. If you want the troll that causes the most impact, it really depends on the troll. An INTJ could come up with something that could completely change everything, where as an ENTP will be more likely to be persistent until they receive the trolling attention they deserve.
