In my case, it feels more like my Ni is just predicting all the possible outcomes of each interaction. I play all the possibilities out in my head. The "angry" reaction is thus eliminated as being "stupid." For me, it isn't, "I don't have a right to anger," it's "I don't have a right to express anger." Making points in an angry way is a surefire way to make sure that no one takes you seriously.I consider that the w8 influence, the drama is if the 9 is resisting dealing with problems the avoidance and pushing down can cause things to come to a head when things are too far gone and there is no chance of an even reaction. For core 8 anger isn't the last resort, less has happened when you see their anger, and force is an element in play, for 9w8s when anger is seen a hell of a lot must have happened for it to spill out in a visual way, and it is not controlled. It would be short lived through typically, as the quick after thought is "don't have a right to anger", "their position is valid in it's own way as I understand their pov", "this may bother other people which will lead to rejection/disconnection" and the doubt over it being an appropriate reaction can quickly become more suppression if not careful.
So do you feel like you're holding a lid tightly over your anger? Or is it so deep down under the crust of your psyche that it is entirely quiescent until it erupts like a volcano?9w8 is well visualised as a caricature when thinking of Bruce Banner/Hulk. Unassuming, withdraw and chill, but able to rage hot.
That said, no one would have seen my rage since I was a teen, not because it isn't there, just because I fear letting it out, the consequences of it, and I have enough control to notice it and temper it. Plus recognising signs of rising anger early means I can be proactive about things.
