    I simply sit and stare at the person with a blank expression... It tends to piss them off further that I'm NOT reacting... This amuses me much more than it should...

    I don't do well with people yelling at me.

    My natural instinct is to get all defensive and yell back which rarely produces good results.

    Sometimes, I'll get hyper reasonable and tell them they are making a big deal out of nothing and try to rationalize things. This usually just makes things worse.

    Sometimes I just walk away and tell them I'll talk when you're more calm. Mixed results on this strategy.

    Although it depends on the situation.

    If it is about a non-immidiate issue. I'd let them calm down before taking any action. So avoidance most likely.

    If it's about a situation that is immidiate however, I focus on fixing that situation to the best of my ability, preferably without the shouter present in the same room. I am likely to kindly but sternly ask them to leave and let me take care of it.

    If the shouter is essential for participation in the solving of the issue. I will try my best to diffuse the situation at first, but suppose even that fails, I would show frustration and try to point out the immidiate nature of the issue.

    However, if the shouter is a known 'shouter' for any and every reason. Issues might be left to rot as I might not care enough to focus on the issue alltogether and leave the shouter with the pieces.

    Hmm. I think that's about it.

    It depends on who it is and what they're yelling about. I can yell back, but other times I just look at them and am like "um okay, what's this about." Sometimes my ESFJ ex would start yelling and because I learned over time he had severe emotional problems, I'd just be like "oh christ what now" and I wouldn't even engage.

    I used to get upset and freeze or cry when I was younger, but I grew out of that, because it feels too much like giving up to me, I'm too much of a fighter to allow someone to overpower me that way.

    I'm in the process now of trying to learn not to yell back, unless it's necessary to put the person in their place. I've come to the conclusion that reacting is warranted in some cases for putting certain people in their places (bullies) ...but in other cases, like with a friend or acquaintance you know isn't going to harm you, that it's best to literally disengage - not cry, not yell, just think "this isn't about me, this is about the person yelling" and fight fire with water, so to speak.

    It's a completely different place than either crying or freezing or yelling, because it's not about giving up or being a victim, but about realizing that sometimes seeming passive is control, and the difference is how you feel on the inside and what you do subsequently.

    That's some philosophy I can get down with.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
