    I tend to take this approach as well.

    There are two people I wonder this about; but the types are way different. I'm way different than my mom anyway. It can be hard to tell from the outside. INFJ's are sometimes oblivious to the outside world. ISFJ's notice all kinds of details about the world- but boring (and sometimes useful) factual stuff, whereas INFJ's will notice sensory details (which ISFJ's sometimes miss). INFJ's tend to be more cerebral, thinking about abstract ideas and patterns. ISFJ's sometimes have their own brand of magical thinking, like being into ghosts and psychic stuff. ISFJ's can be more vulgar. INFJ's have a way of seeming like they aren't quite comfortable being physically present in the world, but ISFJ's seem to be pretty solid. ISFJ's are not as psychologically complex. They probably talk more than INFJ's. Also my mom can be kind of a bad judge of character, but she's not bad at figuring out what goes on in people's minds. She often assumes the worst though, or will go on some tangent which is out of character for the person. INFJ's are good at knowing who people are and what kind of a person someone is, but may not respond appropriately. They both have their own special brand of paranoia. Inferior Ne vs. Ni.

    Thank you so much for your answers, all. Will respond in more detail when I can.

    Follow-up question: Is this essentially an attempt to sacrifice your feelings for harmony and/or The Greater Good? Trying to put myself in your shoes, I probably would have shared my feelings and tried to work out a solution that didn't make me feel like a bad person. Not that this is a "better" route, as it could potentially lead to conflict, and it might make the person concerned that I would remain frustrated later -- whereas with you folks, in a perfect world, no one would ever know your feelings on the subject?

    Saves so much decision-making time. Very efficient! Plus, no hard feelings in the end.

    Do you feel more traditionally right- or left-brained?

    Don't say whole-brained!

    In a perfect world, I wouldn't be a petty, selfish prick and doing the right/kind thing would always make me feel good. IOW, I want so much to think of myself as a good person, etc that accepting that I feel so strongly about such a small thing is pretty mortifying. I tend to keep hoping it will go away and feel ashamed when it does not. It'd be like admitting you're physically attracted to Donald Trump. Of course you don't want anyone to know that about you.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    All the online left/right brain tests I've taken have said I'm in the middle.

    I think it's much more complicated than just an attempt to sacrifice personal feelings for harmony and/or The Greater Good, although I think it's possible to convince oneself that that's what's going on. I'm not sure you want the long (loooooong) answer from me, though, so I'm working on whittling it down.

    As for your second question, about "in a perfect world no one would ever know your feelings on the subject", um, have you seen my blog? In my perfect world, I would immediately know my own feelings on the subject, and I would be sure to convey them in a responsible and respectful manner. There might be a lot of compromise, but very little sacrifice.
