    Default Wow, do NF's really like poking at people???

    "3. Poke! What will he do this time? Poke....Yes that got her going! Poke...hmmmm that didn't work. Poke-nudge-Poke Now that was a great reaction it was worth the wait!............... HEY!!! Stop picking on me back-JERK!"

    Wow, I thought this was just ME because I'm a little ADD (also an ENF trait?) and I like seeing how people tick. I really used to try to get a reaction from people, to see if and when and how they got angry, what they were passionate about, etc. And it's true, sometimes it backfires because you 'poke' and you succeed in getting a rise from someone, but then they STAY TRULY ANGRY at you and don't like you as much!

    Hahahaha, it's an NF curse.

    More:

    1. Feel attacked when someone disagrees with you.

    2. Have trouble seeing a comment as an observation rather than a compliment or insult.

    3. May attempt to manipulate people's emotions to achieve something, or simply as a defense mechanism. (Although I feel bad about it if I do this.)

    Literally: I like to poke people in their belly buttons, but once I poked one of my coworker's in her belly button and she got a little too so I issued myself Cease and Desist order until find a less invasive way of getting a rise.

    Figuratively: I like to poke people and sometimes they get mad at me, then I'm like I probably shouldn't have done that, but meh. I get bored easily.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I probably wouldn't invade someone's personal space unless I knew them very well, and even then I would be hesitant. I'm not really into poking physically. I only poke people figuratively if I know them well, and know they can take it. Otherwise I'm very respectful and formal.

    Isn't it interesting to see how despite all being NF's, we differ from each other?

    Over-sensitive i would agree with, but revengeful? well i know at least that im not revengeful which is a good thing.

    As for the whole conspiracy, its more of an anxiety towards possibilities for me anyway.

    smell?

    a fragrance?
    an aroma?
    a scent?

    I plead also guilty.

    I thought conspiracy theories were a "P" thing.

    i'm not revengeful either, never have been. the conspiracy bit tends to happen when i get confused, mixed signals or when i smell a rat!
