    Have to translate a psychology article from English to Slovenian. Hmm, hope this won't be too hard. Haven't gotten it yet so I dunno which one it is.

    If you really want to mess up the other points-players, just stop playing. They won't know how to handle you without it. It can go a few different ways. The more extreme results are along the lines of being ostracized from the group (because you don't play their game), or people being amazed that you're a reasonable human being.

    INTJs tend to really hate these kinds of social interactions, because we tend to believe that pointing out a real problem that needs solving should get the attention it deserves, instead of being ignored because you need some sort of political clout to actually do anything about it.
    You make a good point.

    I care too much about what others think and am too reliant upon social approval to be honest. But I grew up in an environment of difference met with violence and aggression.

    However I am trying to wean myself off this.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It may not leave you, but you can work with it like clay. Mold it into something that works for you, and what you want your future to be. Some people use that type of early environment as a springboard for creativity. What I'm trying to say is, don't let it own you. Turn it around and own it. Make sense?

    I've officially exceeded my limit for social interaction as prescribed by my owner's manual. My voice is hoarse and my nerves are frayed. I think I'm one conversation away from rocking back and forth in a corner somewhere.

    I fully agree with Jag.

    One way for you to own it is to realize that being very aware of how others feel about you and how they react to you is useful! You don't have to use your knowledge to GAIN more approval; just know where they're at and work with them in that state. Or even better, use that knowledge to understand them as individuals, what they care about, what motivates them, and so on. That's the precursor to actually connecting with them.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
