This reminded me of the King of the Mountain phenomenon; attributed in the wiki as both Te and Fe-dom (as inferior Ti):
Tangentially--yeah, screw that noise. If someone thinks that they're right and are not open to be proven otherwise, and especially if they hold no real position in your life, then.. screw it, let 'em be right in their own minds; their delusions will probably bite them in the ass eventually.In the King-on-the-Mountain style of conversation, one person (the King) makes a provocative statement, and requires that others refute it or admit to being wrong. The King is the judge of whether any attempted refutation is successful.
And upon typing that out, I wonder whether it's an example of a statement that seems overly authoritative.
