Very good point about passive aggressive types.
Very, very true. Your take is spot on in a variety of situations for those who can't handle differing opinions.
Stonewalling tends to make me think badly of those doing it. The answers do show that there are other possibilities, though I will likely continue thinking it's where I should push more. I think you shouldn't elevate those who attempt to deny truth.
These are extremely good observations. I had not thought about the possibility of someone not wanting to get involved or medical issues.
If someone's being evasive when you ask for specifics or trying to avoid discussing something you have reason to believe they know about, would you feel they are doing so because they are guilty themselves or helping others?
It would all depend on what it was I wanted to know about, how trustworthy I thought the person I was asking was, and what I thought of the "others" involved. Too many variables to answer. You might well have asked me "How suspicious are you?"
