    I'm not aware of I do it or not. I do like to bring up emotionally charged topics in conversation, mostly because I find that those kinds of issues are where my interests lies.

    If I ever do this, it's probably subtle.

    They often have _good_ smile. When I see them, I feel better. It's like to see a smiling child.
    As they are introverted, they care about people's mood locally and selectively. Fe types often try to rise your mood, if you are in the zone of their charge.

    I mostly do it minimally, with an eye to relevance, and it partly depends on the personality of the person I'm with, i.e. with my EIE friend I'm more open and active in my expression, and will focus on 'expanding' the Fe dynamic as much as possible because that's the ethos of the interaction... whereas with my LIE friend I'll mostly stick to emotional maintenance. in general though I prefer to be in a position where I can subtly influence things, such as being the one to choose what music to listen to in a small group. it just makes sense that way. the 'why' is more or less that aristocratic principle dictates that a certain degree of control be exerted, and it's more often than not pretty fulfilling in an almost moral sense, like the obverse of delta duty or something.

    I think it is done so that the IEI create thought-trains that make people enter specific moods. IEI are more famous for being expert on moods then anything else.

    F types mostly create emotions by nonverbal behavior. Especially P-F types.

    Types with leading F (like EIE) have it stronger and hence can be said as more experts in emotions.

    It's pretty subconscious process for me, but in lot of IEI descriptions it sounds more in control of the type. I've been told I do influence people and their emotion, but I am never aware of doing that, it just happens and it can be even hard for me to see when it happens.
    So I was wondering if it's true of other IEIs.

    I don't usually try to influence the entire "atmosphere", but usually a single person that I'm interacting with. I'll try to change their emotions for the better, if I thought that it would be beneficial. For example, if the person is feeling sad or depressed, then I'll try to cheer him/her up.

    I actually start dropping weird, random or vulgar jokes and if people like this kind of humour they start to laugh. Or I talk about (like Starfall already mentioned) topics which are emotionally charged such as politics. I show and express my own emotions vividly, while talking about these kind of topics. I don't know how to describe it but when I'm happy or angry I intensely feel these emotions and kind of give off these vibes. Once after I stopped being pissed because of someone's actions, someone else asked me if I finally stopped being a frozen ice block, haha.
    Sometimes I fail changing the mood with vulgar jokes, especially when IEEs (and other Deltas) are part of the crowd. They kind of block my usually well meant intentions and kind of try to make me look stupid, trying to change the atmosphere to more serious topics. Partially I can understand if it's annoying to them (once met an ILE guy who was as bad as me and it can get kind of exhausting), at the same time I do not like mood cockblocking, haha.
