    I wasn't being a scolding harridan... I was quite polite.

She would just mutter nasty sentences indirectly that were meant for me, but directed at others. When she saw it had no effect on me, she slowly turned silent.
    What makes you so sure she's an INFJ? Because that's one tactic that is guaranteed to make me angry, so I certainly wouldn't do it to someone else. I don't like when people take pot-shots at me indirectly. Just take your issue up with the person, like an adult. If that is INFJ behavior I'm going to need to see some INFJs in my office.

    Well. We've exchanged views. So, let's move on. There is likely a crudeness spectrum and I may be on the opposite pole from you. I recognize this essential reality. The question is, who should accommodate whom? I am not imposing my perspective on you, but to appease you I would have to adopt your perspective.

    I wanted to bring up the issue publicly, because there may be others who agree with me.

    Why should your values be so primary that they require me to modulate myself to fit you?

    Lauren, She was one of the ones who turned me on to MBTI and she told me she was INFJ. I had no reason not to believe her. She seemed NTish, which many of your INFJs seem like to me.

    Yes, I don't like that behavior either. But basically she knew she wouldn't get anywhere with me so she whined about me openly to my crew (guilt tripping). Then the door slam. Well, good riddance.

    And I know that you would never behave that way, as I am sure that most INFJs wouldn't. I think she just had a maturity problem, which transcends type.

    Yep. A word to the wise - if we start rapid-firing questions, you've already lost. This is how we, in my opinion, try to make you look like an idiot, not outright correcting you (which most people interpret to be as such).

    I thought it was funny. But Synarch has enough ego so I wasn't about to let him know that I laughed at it.

    My values don't require you to do that. If it's important for your freedom of expression, to sometimes do it in a manner that some might find to be a bit crude, that's your choice. I just have to decide if putting you on ignore is worth it, because I would then miss out on the comments you make that are frequently quite entertaining.

    I don't try to make people look stupid, per se. I try to poke holes in their flimsy justifications. Justifications that conceal an emotional predilection that is inherently subjective.
