It looks that this bearded ENTP has finally understood the purpose of Fe. Congratulations.
How many years did it took, tell me? :rolli:
Next time, he'll re-invent the wheel, who knows?
Let's see. I am 32 now, so it took 33 years.

Some are so bottled up inside that they cannot be angry with other people or experience unresolved tension without discomfort. So, the need to "keep the peace" can sometimes operate as a desperate attempt to avoid tension or conflict. But, sometimes tension is necessary and positive, so acting on this need to avoid or escape tension in the midst of a situation where it is necessary can be detrimental to long-term success of the situation, which is negative. Hence choosing to behave in a way that is ultimately damaging is self-serving and dishonest. Self-serving because it serves the need to avoid tension and deceitful because one can convince one's self that keeping the peace is the higher virtue.
