Can anyone else relate to this? I never realize it at the time I’m doing it, but my ENFJ husband always brings it to my attention after the fact that I say the absolute wrong thing in sensitive situations.
A recent example: my friend was having a crisis with a relative’s unusual behavior and was concerned she may have had a stroke. My husband and her husband responded with, “No, there’s no way she had a stroke, don’t worry about that.” My response to them was, “Well she shouldn’t rule a stroke out. Those symptoms could apply to a stroke victim,” then proceeded to pull up effects of stroke on my phone to show her. My husband said he could tell it upset her more and that I should have just gone along with them, but I was baffled that they wouldn’t want to be straightforward with her, almost felt like that was more cruel.
Needless to say, I apparently stick my foot in my mouth a lot. It has come to my attention a lot more in the past five years spending my life alongside an F. Anyone else have a similar story?
