    What cognitive functions come to play when dealing with people repeat stuff?

    I hate it when my father keeps asking the same questions that I answered before.
    It is the kind of answer that is conclusive "No."
    I think the essence of this comes down to me not wanting to do what I had already done before.

    Which of the cognitive functions come into play when it comes to this? Or is it just a universal thing?

    Also in a general sense, how does the cognitive functions work when it comes to typical ISTP stuff? Stuff like hating small talks and those other stuff that ISTPs do.

    Admittedly, I'm not clear how those functions interact with each other. I do know this "How these things work?" comes from my Ti.

    "Don't make me repeat myself" ?

    I think it's inferior Fe.

    I get a little confrontational if somebody repeats something time and time again. I hate feeling like people are nagging me. Occasionally I'll say "you already told me that, and I agreed I would do it." people seem to like time frames but not me.

    Small talk...eh I'm okay with small talk if it leads somewhere interesting. I'm ambiverted. But I don't like it if it's just awkward and forced, and I get a good sense of which direction it's heading fairly quickly into the "small talk." at the same time I've developed my Fe enough where I'm pretty good at making others feel comfortable with me; I'm a fly on the wall, I hear a lot of secrets.

    Pretty much this. I fucking HATE people repeating themselves unnecessarily. My most common phrases for that are "Yes, you already told me.", "You already said that" and "You don't need to repeat yourself"

    That is inferior Fe.

    Someone with a dominant Fe wouldn't say things like that because they're too nice; they try to keep the relationship harmonious.

    I fucking hate it when people repeat themselves, one of the things that pushes my tolerance.

    I think it's anything but inferior to immediately notice when a person repeats the same shit he/she told you already 3 weeks/months/years ago.
    To me it always feels like a painful hardcore déja-vu. It's like a been-there-done-that-stop-bothering-me-with-stuff-I-already-know.

    It's kinda funny that you guys have the same "problem" with that.

    Depends on how it's done. If they're just repeating random things, I tend to brush it off, or maybe wonder if they have Alzheimer's.

    However, if they're repeating things because they're incompetent or forgetful and assume that because they can't handle things, that I need to be reminded too, I'll take it for a while, but eventually fly off the handle with whatever insult I know will shock them and shut them up.

    It's nothing personal, just a "knock it off or things will get much worse" warning. It's usually enough, although family can be a challenge at times.

    So there isn't any conclusive regarding the connection between the cognitive functions and the "I don't like people to repeat the same shit over and over" behavior?

    I get that it is annoying but it is particularly annoying for us.

    I think @Eikichi was right its inferior Fe

    I know that those are the kinds of things I get emotional about is other peoples repetitiveness implying that I am not competent to comprehend their simpleton words. A lot of people need someone to smile & nod or speak back to them, for them to feel heard.

    Not to sound terrible but one of my biggest pet peeves is my kids, will say "mom mom mom mom mom mom mom" (usually while I am concentrating on a task)
    Lol til finally I burst "WHAT, you don't have to wait for me to respond to mom, just continue the fricken sentence"

    lol, why can't you just say what the first time even if you don't really plan on listening?

    In my experience (not with kids but people in general) I get annoyed too ... but I just tune them out. It's not uncommon for me to be asked a question and reply with, "I'm sorry I wasn't listening." Sometimes that doesn't get the point across and they start all over, which is fine because I'm still not listening. About halfway through they'll stop and say, "Are you even listening?" Usually I say, "Not really no, but you're free to keep talking." Then they sulk ... sulking is nice ... sulking is quiet. My friends (people I care about) don't bug me like this so it's not like I have to worry about offending my people. Just random people I'm forced to spend time with.
    My mom does this a LOT but I've learned that I'd rather *not listen* to the same story that I know all the correct responses to and can answer correctly when she asks, then be forced to listen to what she's watched on t.v. recently.
