Sometimes people add "no offense" to the end of their sentences. Like "You look like George Bush. No offense".
What function is it that makes you add it? I assume it is Fe or Fi thing (or just something not related to a function but to a cultural way of interacting).
Anyways I dislike it when people do that. I always seem to take offense if "no offense" is said to me. Often times I don't find the actual sentence said to be offensive at all. I might even find it amusing. But then when you add "no offense" at the end it suddenly becomes offensive.
What does it really mean when someone says "no offense"? Why do you add it there? Are you trying to be offensive, avoiding being offensive or perhaps trying to be defensive? In any case I find it unnecessary and ambiguous.
