Nah. I know what INTP Fe looks like (since I have an INTP dad who relies a lot on his inferior Fe for his work) -- and even though he uses it to be friendly and pretend to be interested in what other people are saying, he definitely doesn't use it to avoid offending people in a friendly way. When he wants to avoid offending people, he does the standard NTP thing, where he tries to look cute and innocent after saying something obnoxious. It always works!Yeah, I guess I do try to be neutral on a lot of matters - that could also have to do with my hatred for eating crow, though... I wonder sometimes if I could be a Fe-inferior INTP, since my interpersonal skillz nevertheless suck.
Edit: I will say, though, that I see you more as INTP than as INFP, if I was forced to choose between the two (even though I'm still 99% certain of ISFJ). I've seen you disowned by some INFPs, and I trust their Fi Radar enough to be convinced that you aren't Fi.
I've met plenty of Fe people who have bad social skills. One of my best friends is an extremely awkward INFJ guy. He's so self-contained and neutral around most people, and so slow to open up, that you'd probably only know he was an Fe type once you became his friend, because then he'd start saying sweet Fe affirmations to you, looking out for you (like he looks out for all his friends) to make sure you're doing okay, etc.
I wonder if this is why I have so many more NF forum friends than NT ones.
