    I'm sorry for apologizing so much.

    Can we go back to watching the movie now?

    Actually, I don't usually apologize unless it's something done out of pure clumsiness (physical or mental). The rest of the time, I tend to explain my train of thought, often negating the need to apologize. I do use the sarcastic sorry a lot, though.

    I get told off all the time for apologizing - I'm not being a pain, but my normal reaction is to say "I'm sorry".... I do try not to, but I always feel I should...

    I've noticed this with an INFP friend, he'll react with some trivial negativity to a said thing, which is perfectly normal for a normal person. And then quickly react to it as if i was being offended, or because he thought it was wrong conducy. It seem's to be their form of check leverage on their negative emotions. They can't bring themselves to scold people, even assholes.

    Yeah, exactly. it's just an innocuous negative -- little judgments that anyone has and you learn to accept as "normal."

    When you say it that way, though, it sounds like a potential counterpoint to the INTP tendency to correct their own casual comments in order to make them precise and apologize for not being nuanced enough, although no one else cares and the context is casual.

    Yep. Self-check.

    Actually I apologise before I spew out all my negativity, then apologise again. I always did wonder why people looked at me oddly.
    My personal thing, is my mother told me I was very rude and curt with people when I was younger. She was always pulling me up for it....it got to the point where I was apologising for just speaking, so for a while all you heard from me was "sorry" and not much else. I just felt I couldn't say anything without offending people.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
