    Any type can do that really. It's more common for Fe doms because it's how they navigate the world, and not all do it with malicious intent. It doesn't phase me, but it's because I am an expert at dogging that sort of thing. If someone tries to manipulate me, I usually sense it and slip out of it. Partly because I have the ability to be really manipulative, that I see it in others when they try to do it.

    That's their problem if they take offense (assuming that they actually are) for you not conforming to what they are proposing. If they do, screw em and just let them get their undies in a bunch over it.

    I also find it interesting that a lot of people have been claiming that Fe is passive aggressive more so than any other function. It can be, butI see it in Fi too with the same level of frequency (it's an F thing in general). They just do it in a different manner with different motivations. When Fi goes passive aggressive is when I get really irritated. Fe I just laugh at and move on. It's partly because my manner of dealing with PA behavior is to be blunt and expose it verbally to everyone around. It shuts it down fast, and most Fe folk will stop at that point because they realize it won't work anymore. Where as Fi will usually get pissed for someone doing that, and try to do it more in spite of it, which makes me get more and more aggressive with it until they cave.

    The best way to deal with passive aggression is with direct aggression.

Let's say you and I had some small disagreements and rather than just telling me respectfully and openly, you became emotionally manipulative and passive-aggressive. Chances are, I'll see what you're doing, and it's just going to annoy me even more. If what you're thinking is 'I really don't appreciate it when you leave a pile of unwashed dishes in the morning', why can't you just say that. Why do you have to say 'I was going cook something, it's a shame that some people just don't respect other people's space...'? What if I have a sleep disorder that makes it hard for me to wake up in the morning and I just don't have time for dishes? What if I am allergic to things that are quick in the morning like toast or muesli? Why can't we just talk to each other like mature adults and put all the relevant issues on the table? Snarky comments here and there will just annoy me more, and more, and more, until one day it all comes out. As an Fi user, I just think parts of Fe ends up leading to more conflict, which is ironic, since that's what the Fe user was trying to avoid in the first place.

    It sounds as if you are expecting the other party to initiate the negotiations whenever the latter perceives a problem...So it sounds as if you are basically saying "it's your problem, not mine..." You are not assuming ownership of it?

    In either case, aren't you getting informed about the presence of the problem(s) despite the style of delivery? So (why) don't you do something to address the "dishes" problem as well as the "style of delivery" problem instead of allowing it to repeat and build-up?

    The problem is that they try get even somehow for that perceived offense, like sulking or making snide remarks about my lifestyle etc...Like they do not consider me non-hostile and continue with the hostilities...

    Can you give an example on how you expose the Fe user?

    Fi gets stubborn about it...and it gets to display itself more externally in the case of Fi-aux I believe...

    How do you deal with such instances specifically, i.e. when the other doesn't want to respect your boundary?

    You have two options. You either keep working at it, or ignore them outright and keep as much distance from them as possible, which is actually quite easy to do. Don't let comments like that bother you. So what if they think that? It's not right, you know it, and they aren't harming you in any other regard.

    Well, I just explained how. I can't think of any explicit examples at the moment. What I do anyway is call the person on their behavior if they are being a problem.

    When others don't respect my boundaries I either back off completely so they have no power/say over me anymore, or I get more aggressive to establish the boundaries until they back off, or I use others around me to bolster/justify my courses of actions to get them to stop infringing. This is all done in such a way that the events themselves are blunt/direct, but the whole goal that I seek is as covert as possible.

    Fe doms get a bad rap for wrongly assuming they're drama starters/stirrers. I almost never have social problems in my life from friends, family, or strangers. At the end of the day for all my bumps and hiccups, I'm highly adept at navigating the social world. When they do appear, I shut them down quite quickly using the methods I explained above. Really, all one needs to do is keep a stiff spine and a kind demeanor/goal.

    OK, so there's a few things.

    1. Yes we're just talking about certain cases of Fe. Obviously, not all Fe pisses me off. None of the functions, in their entirety, always piss me off.

    2. The dishes case is just something I made up on the spot, so don't get too hung up on the example. What I was trying to say is that there may be legitimate reasons for me to do things you don't like, such as being really short on time or whatever, and sometimes, we just don't expect other people to react in a certain way. We all have different values, something that is really small and insignificant to me, may be important to you, and if there are other reasons why I may put things on hold, I may end up annoying you without thinking it would. We are not mind readers, I can't always predict what would upset you. If your response is a snarky passive-aggressive one, then often assumes certain things in its emotional manipulation and undertones. But that's exactly the problem, by not being clear and direct, you start off with an accusation -- one that may not be fair -- before you give us a chance to see that you are upset, apologise, and explain what's going on.

    3. @Taking ownership of a problem, just see above. Once again, we are not mind-readers. There's plenty of room for misunderstandings and miscommunication, as well as less than ideal circumstances, and just differing values. Chances are, the Fi-Te user will be more willing to talk about any problem upfront. That's been my whole point all this time.

    I can probably explain this all better, but I'm really tired, and it's quite late. Tldr: sometimes we may not realise that something bugs you, or there may be legitimate reasons why that thing can't be done away with. When Fe is at its worse, it makes too many tacit assumptions which ends up just angering the Fi-Te user.

    I was wondering about the exposing thing...How do you expose them without getting angry or sounding insulting\condescending...?

    People, you can chime in with how Te can sound irritating as well...

    Yea, I'd say, that's probably how some people see me irl.

    I don't think any of these things are relevant though. I am going to get my point across when I'm speaking to someone cause that's the reasoning for communicating in the first place. I expect them to do the same. And if that means that they need to communicate to me that I need to tone down my critiquing or what ever else they feel I'm doing, then they are going to have to straight out tell me. I do not speak the language of emoting. It would take me more than 5 mins per facial expression to get what emotional vibe is coming along with that. And that frankly is a waste of my time and would deplete all my energy. But it's not like we want to be bad ppl. At least not me lol. It's just not my priority to spend time absorbing ppl's vibes...when they could just tell me! That is a way more efficient route!

    What do you, Te users, feel when communicating with people thru Te? How does the process and the other person look to you from your perspective?
    I'm just thinking about the other person's thoughts. Trying to follow their logic behind what they've said. My interactions are usually quick. I don't spend time examining the other person, other than their thought process.

    Can it have something to do with Ti-tert or Fe-aux...?
    Probably a combination of both. Ti most likely thinks Te is shallow. Ti examines thought at a much deeper level with much more categorizing and context than Te does. Then Fe will automatically notice when I am disagreeing with someone. Especially when I'm not so discrete about it. They don't like that.

    Does Fe voice evoke a similar reaction in Fi users? If yes, how?
    Fe does not have the patience for Fi. Again Fi wants to mull emotions over, compare contexts, sift through categories....things that Fe just doesn't have time for. Fe has to stay in the present moment. It needs to process the emotions in real time to be effective. To know exactly what to say, when to say it, an to whom. And it is very good at that, btws.

    Does Fe sound as if it was morally superior\entitled or something else?
    Fe sounds like it thinks it knows better, that's all. Which is fine, it's just the way it is. In a lot of cases it's quite useful. It's not always true though. Just like every other function, Fe doesn't have solid grounding to take charge in every aspects of an individual's life.

    The bolded part requires Te in the other person I guess...I wish I had more of it...If they are Fe-heavy, they would try to communicate thru Fe and perhaps you might not pick up on it?

    Yes, it's only a "part" of the solution...
