Me, too. I'd much rather do the critiquing one-on-one. I don't really relate to protecting my thoughts, though? In fact, I'm always aware that there might be some side of an issue I haven't seen yet. But I'd prefer that the person do it in a respectful way. It's disrespectful to just call someone out, rather than suggest they consider another idea or ask them for clarification. If I felt like someone was trying to make me look stupid in front of a group, that would piss me off.I guess I cannot say I relate to this; I prefer critiques of both feelings and thoughts done privately; but can withstand critique of thoughts publicly. However I do not expect myself to be perfectly congruent with all Fe users all the time, so I can see it being true. Differing background histories can change a perspective easily.
