    I stated it's context dependent and you believe it's context independent. Sometimes the best strategy is not immediately saying anything because people make themselves look foolish and dig a deep hole for themselves without you having to say a word. I'm not advocating being a pushover, I'm advocating knowing when to move. If moving immediately works in that context then do it, but I don't think that's always the route to go. It's not about being afraid of confrontation, conflict, or indirect. Confrontation will occur and an explanation of what went wrong is expected.

    Also, I've seen people keep trying to one-up each other and both of them look like idiotic children. You saying your piece doesn't make the other person cease from saying theirs. Matters escalate and spill into other areas because no one knew how to put the brakes on and take matters privately or their pride and sense of being disrespected keeps them from moving away from the situation towards other means of resolution.

    Outside of the professional environment, do what you do and if it works continue on.
    Yeah, call me selfish, but I don't care if it's in a work environment or not. And by Fi/Fe I meant being dependent on context or not. Te and Fe will act different depending on the context. Ti and Fi don't care as much.


    And well, my strategy has always worked for me, so that is why I shared it.

    I am really annoyed by bad people who manage to get off scott-free without some bad karma biting them in the ass. I don't like seeing someone just get away with their "crime" and feeling no remorse or repercussions. I don't necessarily want them to be tortured, but I do get very fixated on the need for them to feel true "justice" for their actions. If they're too deluded and selfish to feel guilt or fault, at least they can get some sort of punishment ... it's still something, though maturity, growth, and humility would be my first choice always.

    Karma doesn't work swiftly or effectively enough for me.
    It takes a lot for me to feel that i want some form of justice or suffering to be served, but i don't feel at ease when it gets to that point. Something has to be done or a point made for me to be at peace with the situation.

    I've planted many ticking time-bombs in the minds of people who have hurt me. I've called them out on lies, or informed the right people of the truth. I actually have a situation that i've been meaning to throw some "justice" into for some time, but want to displace emotions from it first.

    I can see both sides, the hurt and the vengeful, so I don't put more weight on one than the other. They're two sides of one coin. Best just not to deal in that currency if you can help it.

    I've only done direct get back a couple of times in my life. I would prefer to leave it to Universe. I do believe things even out. More than that, I guess I think I can't be sure I'm doing the right thing because I'm not omniscient, so that makes it more likely I would be wrong to do wrong even if it looks like the other person deserves it.

    Get outta my head, cafe! I would love to do the same. However, I would have to answer to that *Higher Power*. Nah, I figure I'll have enough to answer for.

    This is where I find a need to have super powers. I could do whatever I wanted with my mind. (and still have to be accountable, of course :)

    If you find a some way to get the super powers and a loophole from accountability, look me up. We could have a lot of fun until we started feeling guilty!
    “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.”

    There have been people who've done terrible things to me, but still at the same time...I don't really want anything terrible to happen to them. I don't know why that is.

    It does bother me A LOT though, when good people aren't rewarded and life basically craps all over them.
