It’s caused me some embarrassment afterwards when I looked back at my reaction. But when people reject the Si I offer, I can get so critical and shouty, even.
I suggest a film to someone, I create a tranquil environment where we can disolve into the experience uninterrupted and the person then does something like get up and start doing the dishes. They might try to pacify me saying that they can follow the plot from the sink. You do not watch such and such director standing by sink, I reply, and I get restless. I will reprimand the person in a high voice if I continue to notice lack of attention on their part.
Here I am, offering something new so that they can stretch their Ti and Ne sideways and lengthways and look at what they give me.
Or I will plan a trip to a tour destination. I will include the more scenic route there as opposed to the fastest one. How can anyone say no to adding another beautiful experience on top of the one planned, how can they be so needlessly closed-off? I’ll get so pissed if they insist on fastest one.
I write this to paint a general picture to non-caregivers who were wondering about the dynamics. I’ll repeat that with SEIs at least, a rebuff of offered Si can lead irritation and anger. When we don’t get the ‘right’ reaction we get hit by the impression of being in the vicinity of zombified person (this is more personal, but the frustration might also stem from the perception of no presence of a critical eye for life in general).
