    Default Goat Getting

    I posted this in the NT forum 'cause of... reasons but I wanted to know NF opinions too, hence the placement, and even then only vaguely, but anyway, I'm curious about this.
    I know it's a dupe.

    What do you all think about deliberately getting peoples' goats?
    That is, by you, or by someone else.

    How do you respond when you can tell someone is just trying to get your goat?
    How do you respond if you don't know they're trying to get your goat, but realize it later on?

    I do it alot, but it's not so much that I go after their goat as much as it is that they give it to me.
    But sometimes I do intentionally get peoples' goats.

    I was brought up on a farm, on which there were far too many noisy, mischievous, butty goats for comfort. And I don't even like goats' milk that much. Cheese is a different matter, but I can't be bothered to do something complicated like make it myself. So I currently posess no goats whatsoever, and am quite content with my goat-free circumstances. I am not even going to start coveting anyone else's goats, let alone actually go after them. And being goat-free myself, I am also immune to the other issue you mention, that of someone else wanting to get my goat.

    Either I am just stupid, or am missing something key..because I don't know whether to take this literally, or if it has some meaning, I'm missing it...

    How do I respond, by getting pissed off- which just makes me fall into their hands. I know that by reacting I reward their efforts and bring them satisfaction but I can't help it- I can't mask my emotions and my face always gives my thoughts away. Damn these beautiful expressive eyebrows!

    I try to do the petty revenge of getting someone's goat as a passive aggressive way of saying you suck,lol. For instance- an ENTJ girl who is an ego maniac made a play and wrote, starred, and directed the sucky crap herself. When watching a movie with her in a room with a group of people that was written, directed, and starring a guy I said very loudly wow what a complete egomaniac the guy wrote, directed and is starring in it- you know it is going to suck.

    I was very obviously trying to say YOU SUCK YOU COMPLETE EGOMANIAC.
    I don't even think she cared,lol. Oh well worth a try,lol.

    I don't like it when people try to get my goat because I just reward them for it and am an easy target. I try to take revenge and use t back but I just end up feeling worse.

    I try to have as little of a reaction as possible because having big reaction is exactly what they're looking for. If I know beforehand, I try to ignore them.

    Also, sometimes I warn other people that they're walking into traps just because it's awkward to watch the whole interaction if they play right into it.

    I try to stay cool and calm. And mostly I ignore. These days, I also might roll my eyes or maybe turn things around on *them* - depending on the scenario. hehe. (but also...this hasn't really happened that I can recall for years, so I don't have much to reference - either that, or I just don't care and don't take it personally and instead get amused by it these days??)

    But this is reminding me of those horrid jr. high and high school days. I'd sometimes wonder whether ignoring it wasn't egging them on just as much, for they knew I knew what they were doing. And for some, the motive might be to not stop *until* they get a reaction.

    You guys seriously don't understand?

    You... like... you've never gotten a goat before?

    I'm sure you have -- even you emotional NFs.
    Surely at least once you've gotten someone's goat.

    See: Urban Dictionary for definition of goat getting.
    Also look up "salty" which is a favorite expression of mine, but one I never ever use.

    ^^ oh eck...we are soul sistas aren't we...haha

    umm...i have issues with the phrase...it bugs me...but if you mean just giving someone shit...for the fun of it...sure i do it quite often and it doesn't bother me a bit if someone does it to me too...but maybe i'm missing the actual point too.

    hah, awh man, I was feeling pretty 'salty'. How could I have been so stupid.

    I feel invaded a lot, and it's weird, because it makes me uncomfortable, totally unrests my peace. I just play it cool though, hoping that they will soon leave me be. I don't like getting phone calls from people, usually, so I stay distant.

    I guess, in general, I zone out, hoping that they will loose interest with me and leave. Probably not a good thing to do, but when I'm not in the mood, it's really disturbing when people butt in, as in calling me, showing up at my house, approaching me in public..I tend to be highly avoidant.
