@Stace, people lie in mafia. Don't take it as a personal attack.
I've never once lied in any mafia game and i don't see the need to. So if you don't, then there's nothing to worry about even if the person is accusing you to do so.
Not just one person have said that you've misconstrued their words. If you're town, there's nothing to hide but it only seem like you were in your playstyle. Try to analyse what's wrong with your interaction with them. This would help with being assertive.

And i recommend cutting off on the MBTI stereotype jokes ;)
All the best ^.^

I'm a tad disappointed he isn't trying to defend himself

The thing is Solstice is that people have done that to me in the past in Mafia games. Misconstrued the meanings of what I posted to make me seem more guilty when I wasn't. I didn't call them a liar. I never would.

I don't expect soft, sweet feedback...but I at least expect people to be mature enough not to resort to low-blows all because of a misunderstanding. I don't take many things personally, but calling me a liar...just doesn't jive with me. Honesty is the thing I value above all.

@StaceOfBass, iirc you were in my first game, remember how bad i was. i didn't even really know how important my role and was very emotional over it all. now, i guess that was 5th or 6th game if you count the one dropped out of. i still don't always blend in well, but i have learned how to have fun along the way.

It can be done @Stace. It takes time and practice. Mafia is a great place to make friends even. x3 <3

@Stace, Mafia can be a learning ground but the reality of it is that it's not a kind of place you'll get soft, sweet feedback on how you're doing and how you can improve and everything. It's really the kind of place where you'll get shot at once you start shooting around. Even if I've only played three games, I just know it's not just about learning to be assertive, but also to endure, to not take things personal, to develop an elephant's skin, to hold your ground even when the whole world seems out there to shake you up. Etc etc.

It was quite clear to me that you weren't twisting words on purpose. I was quite convinced it happened unconsciously, and honestly, that did annoy me. Not you personally, but the way you reasoned. I won't say "awhmigawd inferior Te", cause it's such a cop out - but what I saw was that you would take someone's post, misconstrue its meaning in several ways, like not understanding it in its context, or paraphrasing it in your own words and unintentionally misinterpreting it wrongly that way. So you have to be careful with that. And honestly... it can be a good way to get reactions. But you'd have to play it really well as in hiding it, and at no point was I convinced it was your play. What got to me is that I really wanted to believe you were town, but just by the way you were reasoning, I couldn't justify it.

I hope you understand what I'm saying here, and I hope we're cool. :)

I've been trying to use mafia to learn to be assertive. It's just hard work ><

@solstice it will make more sense when you read the werewolf and hybrid QTs.

@stace
There's no need to walk around eggshells in mafia. That's where I learnt to be assertive. Mafia can be a pretty good lesson for life ;D
Welcome owner :3

Yeah well like I said I'm in no fit mental state to play. It felt like even though I gave town numbers and votes, I still held them back. It frustrated me to no end because I have that 2 in me that loves to be helpful.

And tbh every time, I "twisted" someone's words...I was not aware I did until it was pointed out (I may have said it was all for reactions, but I never intended to in the first place...that's just me putting up walls and avoiding the real problem). -_- I was consciously trying hard not to do it for the past 1 or 2 days but felt like I was walking on eggshells and I still got called dishonest. So needless to say...break from mafia. I'll hang out in any spectator QTs but I just can't play until my mental state improves. :)
