    Default NT Habit

    Anyone else have a habit of pissing people off when you dont mean to. Sometimes I find it funny. Other times I dont even care that they're upset. I always find that they're overreacting.

    Yes, people have a habit of projecting emotion onto neutral statements or actions. They don't understand that not everyone feels something about everything they do.

    This is why I so rarely share my true opinions these days. Just the other day I offended someone because I jokingly said that I would like to vote for some obscure, ridiculous party like the communist party. Granted, it was probably the "ridiculous" part that did it, but I still think it's true.

    No, I usually mean to. That's a big diff between ENTP and INTP.

    That's a habit not limited to NTs. I can piss a certain type of person off just walking into the room.

    I was actually just thinking about this today and I realized I used to be the typical, grumpy, harsh, critical, immature NT but I still had a way of leaving people with a favorable opinion of me after they had been around me for a while.

    I don't know the insensitivity still bites me in the ass sometimes but I've learned to implement a process of checking for the emotional tones of situations before I speak up. I think it really helps because sometimes like you said people will have strong feelings over things that I think are evident and logically alright to be critical of.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Perhaps. I have a habit of saying things in an unflattering way because my mind races so quickly.

    But sometimes, I want to piss people off for various reasons.

    Case in point, I remember back in high school where I called a black person the "N" word just to see what would happen.

    That's interesting. How do you manage to do that?

    No. Is there something particularly vexatious about her appearance?
