That can be difficult to read sometimes, but don't be a stranger here.
Eh, whatever. How do we "cope" with it? Eye-rolls I guess?FYI, I think some of the issue is expectations. I think many people usually encounter the INFP e9 variety in person & they expect their kind of style from all INFPs. But note the enneagram type of the "harsher" posters in here - we're all 4w5s or at least 4s, I believe. Well, 4w5s are said to have a "harsh edge" (which is a flaw, yes), and peacemaking is not a goal so much as understanding human nature in all its hideous glory (and let's not deny the 4 & 5 INFJs are harsher also, or at least less inclined to peacemaking). So yes, you will get much more raw expression in an INFP atmosphere when the 4w5 variety abounds; it's acceptable & even preferred (IDK how the e9 INFPs cope with it).
Nah, it's good, I like the passion of it too.
Your reductive approach to e9 has become yawn-inducing however. If you wish to diminish my posts to something akin to fairy-dust cooperation and milquetoast placation, I suppose that's your prerogative. You know I hold strong opinions as well, but I don't need to be seen as a special snowflake in order to communicate those points. And you also know I'm tenacious regardless of my desire to find the common thread of harmony amongst parties with differing viewpoints. (I am assuming you've paid attention over the years.)
If a situation warranted it, you and I could completely go toe to toe and I would fully hold my own, if not own you. You may be able to induce more pain, granted, but that wouldn't stop me from standing up for my particular values in this regard.
fwiw, there are many more e4's here on the forum than e9's, and I meet more 4's IRL than 9's too, so I think my brand of input holds value as a result, lends additional perspective. And perhaps more pertinent, as an so-dom, I more readily see the value of group harmony as well as the inherent flaws within that system. I don't need to flip the bird at it so much as work the fine edge.
