Hmm, that could be a possibility... will have to think about it.At any rate, in regards to why people care how others perceive them...could it be embarrassment? Embarrassment that other people would think of them as "angry" or overly dramatic? I know sometimes I don't want people to get the wrong idea about me simply because I care about that individual's opinion of me. I wonder in this case if Tallulah felt embarrassed that the ENFP was perpetuating rumors that she might be an angry person? I dunno.
Edit--I honestly don't think that's all of it, though it probably bothered me that SHE thought I was an angry person. I am a super-calm person, and I know that IRL people see me that way. And I knew when she told my friend that I was so angry, that my friend would know I'm not a seething cauldron of repressed anger, so it didn't concern me that my friend would perceive me that way. It really is like Jennifer said--the inaccuracy--that bothers me.
