1: There's some great stuff I didn't acknowledge at the time; it's so hard to keep up with the sheer volume of info in these posts, and then someone else will reply to that person and I'll just figure it's addressed for expediency's sake. Plus, it's easier to connect the dots in retrospect. I wish I had answered a few more of @fidelia 's questions myself along the way and acknowledged her contributions, and what she was trying to do. And thought more on @the state i am in 's posts ... and answered a little more for @fia. And @Z Buck McFate too ... too much to digest!
2: Do I think OA appears decided on her opinion and is just trying to shove it down everyone's throats? In some posts yes, sometimes no. Is it possible she sees INFJ's as "guilty" until proven "innocent"? Yes.
However, what I can say with about 95% certainty is that she wouldn't be in here discussing anything if it was already "cake" or some sort of finished product. It might even be in the oven, but it's not cake yet. If it was me in here posting OA's posts, it would be because I wouldn't want to come to the conclusion I'm close to making. I'd want something that restores my faith in what I used to believe. I really don't see it as something with a sinister agenda, anything vindictive.
But, I could be naive or not seeing it or just plain incorrect. I can't claim to know for sure.
Ya, this one took quite a strange turn.I have mentioned a couple of times that I wish the thread had been split off, because there really *should* be a thread for INFPs to give feedback about INFJs. This stopped being *that thead* quite a while ago.
Why is that a problem though, assuming it's true? Aside from what's already been discussed? (Venting mixed with theory mixed with personal stuff etc. and "alarm bells"...) You suspect some other agenda? I think it has been stewing for while, no? But I think it has more to do with IRL stuff than forum stuff ... does that make it different somehow? I'm losing the significance of this ...Something I wanted to point out about 'cake' is that it isn't finished product. My point in the analogy is just that it's been 'cooked'- but it can still very much be far from 'done'. And I think Starry is trying to point out that it doesn't seem like OA is shooting from the hip with this stuff- it's stuff that's been stewing for quite a while (and she's erected whole Lego cities around it).
At any rate, and this is not directed to you personally Z, but I am getting increasingly uncomfortable that this has been turning to what looks like a witch hunt, vilifying @OrangeAppled when she has pronounced positive intention more than once, and she stated was biased and venting more than once. I didn't see much in my re-read that didn't register on the ranting/venting <----> pondering/theorizing scale. I don't even think she was trolling.
If it's offensive because she sounds decided but you think she's pretending to still be open, I guess I don't see it. And I suppose I am basing that on previous interactions as well, that although she can be "prickly", OA does contribute a great deal of value to many other discussions. I admire her intelligence, tenacity and input.
I think she is sincere in this thread. But clearly, there's more here you want to explore that is itchy for you. I guess we'll see what the rash is caused by ...
