I have a friend who regularly misses on schedules, even when it is about helping them out. A question on how I can get them to correct their course is perfectly acceptable on IPS.SE.
However, there is another aspect to this question. The friend has indicated, on multiple occassions, that I am a good friend to them and that they trust me a lot. This in itself is probably not suspicious, but there are a number of other factors (including the missing on schedules part) which make me suspect that their statements might not be true and they're using this to manipulate me.
I could ask a question without this context, but the answers would mostly focus on communicating this to the friend and/or setting up some protocols to avoid this situation. However, if the friend is manipulating me, all this advice would be pretty useless.
I could ask the question "is my friend manipulating me, and if not how do I get them to correct their course?" In this case, the first part would be subjective, and focused on understanding someone's behaviour.
Would such a question be considered on-topic for IPS.SE?
