    Default ESEs when stressed...

    STAY AWAY. mopiness followed by extreme histrionics = incredibly annoying.

    uh yeah. my ESE friend will complain and worry about EVERYTHING.
    the other day he was cooking spaghetti after work and he kept repeating "this is the worst. the pot isn't big enough, so now there are some pieces of spaghetti stuck together. how am i supposed to eat this?" then he sighed and i seriously thought he was going to cry.
    10 minutes later he got a paper cut. I left him alone so that he could talk to the wall about whether his finger was going to fall off and/or he was going to die.

    My roomie doesn't complain with any kind of seriousness, he just pretends to be self-deprecating.

    that spaghetti thing sounds familiar.

    but the thing I do like about them is that they're fairly resilient. If I feed mine, he's usually better in about 5 minutes.

    It seems especially heightened when some form of organization is going on. There is a course on next week and the ESE secretary at the office I am at is in charge (to the point of bossing the bosses around). However, she has managed to increase the stress levels to an unneeded level where she assumes that absolutely anything that can go wrong will. It's amusing when she tries to overhype the difficulty of the whole thing to the INFp, having other people who are "more qualified" look over what the INFp has done because she is new (7 months) at the place. More so considering that the INFp had finished her bit a month ago, and technically speaking a 5 year old could do this. The boss is an LII though, and takes it in stride with an air of amusement and considering this positive re-inforcement has been going on for ages, the INFp will have a tough time here. My mum is the same, and only calms down when specific people (my dad et al, and myself to some degree as I aged) explain that there really is no need to be that worked up (which I always attributed to being an Fi ego trait hence thinking she was ISFj for ages).
    LII?

    I'm always explaining that there's no need to get that worked up. I'm very logical when he gets that way and he claims I'm not appreciating his emotions or his distress. I usually end up just letting him storm off and then he comes back, eats something, and we move on with life. But I am not amused by this. I wish I were.

    Yeah, I guess it would suck if you did not see the funny side of it all. I know with my mate depending on the stress levels, it varies from mocking him to just listening and throwing in random advice once in a while. It works well so far (usually ignores my advice ). No matter how pissed he is though, usually relatively transient which I am guessing is the same with your ESE. Otherwise, just use your feminine wiles, that'll shut him up
    LII?

    yes I've resorted to that and it works well every time. Problem is, I have to convince myself to do it. Cause I'm sometimes so disgusted with his displays that I can't bring myself to cozy up.
