    yeah, seriously! i really wonder what it is that makes people do that, though? because i know i take what people say pretty literally, so it is not something i would do.

    I guess they just believe what they are feeling and thinking is real. It's not something I'd do either. I kind of dislike it whenever anybody asks the same question twice.

    Would you like a piece of cake?
    No, thank you
    Are you sure you don't want a piece of cake?

    I find myself often asking Thinkers "Are you mad at me?".

    It seems like the general consensus is that when people say "Smile!", it's REALLY irritating. But are there any types who WOULD be okay with being told that? And which types would even SAY that?

    Probably an EF. :/ I've had someone ask me, "Why don't you smile? You never smile." That is NOT something you want to be asking me. What I really wanted to say to them was, "Because I don't feel like smiling. Mind your own damn business! <insert some insulting sentence here>" Instead, as calmly as I could, I responded, "I'm just tired."

    it seems like we ISTPs get that somewhat, people who want to 'fix' us, because they 'know' we are upset and just lying to ourselves.
    Yes to this! I don't know about others but in almost every case of these people asking these questions; they don't believe the answers. I'd say 90% don't accept the answer at face value.


    I'm wondering since everyone doesn't seem to like the "smile" comment...do you find that the person asking you to smile is of the opposite sex? Maybe they want to break the ice and don't know a better way of doing it?

    I know one who does. In such instances, the thought of him getting hit by a large truck usually produces the desired effect (i.e. makes me smile).

    I'm not asked this question often- probably because I'm not an Introvert.
    However, if someone had the audacity and/or the nerve to ask me that-
    I'd take out my cell phone- call a friend and be like, "Hey, what's up. There are so many dumb people here. In fact, I'm looking at one right now.. ugh!"

    Who could possibly ever be mad at you?
