    There is more to gossip than pro or con. Gossip is one leg of the trinity of relationship.

    The most important thing about gossip is that it is secret from face to face. It is done 'behind the back'. All nations, including my own great nation, have front channels and back channels, gossip is simply another back channel.

    To regard gossip in simply moral terms is lazy thinking.

    This is a good example of positive passive aggression.

    Passive aggression is used to conceal our hatred. Our urge to hate can't be denied, but we need to hide it because it is socially unacceptable. So we hide it behind passive aggression.

    Typology Central is the perfect place to hide and express our hatred, because we are anonymous and socially unaccountable.

    The most common form of passive aggression on Typology Central is positive passive aggression. The hatred disguises itself as funny triviality. 'Hey, it is just a joke, not hatred'.

    The safe way to express hatred is in therapy, but mbti doesn't provide therapy.

    Lower cerebral primitive reasons. I think some personalities naturally tend to gravitate towards certain behaviors more than others. Small-mindedness is associated with character deficit disorders like Narcissism, and it's hosts of other psychopathilogies.

    Gossip: a great way to show the world what an empty shell of a person you are. Although I do in fact love everyone, I feel a great sense of disappointment when I observe this behavior in others. Like my fellow human being is really letting me-and all the rest of us-down. Perhaps a symptom of some true despair and misery in one's life. So very sad . . .
