-->''"Morning honey. You look angry about something." \\
"No, I'm not angry." \\
"Hey mom, what's up?" \\
"Oh, your father's upset about something." \\
"What? I said I'm not angry." \\
"Mommy, what's dad angry about?" \\
"I'M NOT ANGRY!"''

Basically, when someone does not have a feeling (specifically, anger), but due to the constant prodding of other characters develops that feeling. Quote above is paraphrased from an old (90's) ''{{Drabble}}'' comic. Anger is the most common end result due to RuleOfDrama, but any emotion reached after a steady (and in the moment true) insistence that it is not present counts.

Contrast ThatMakesMeFeelAngry, subtrope of HypocriticalHumor. TruthInTelevision for pretty much everyone at some point.

* [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1085 This]] ''QuestionableContent'' strip slowly advances towards this trope, hitting it dead-on at the end...
* Not taken to its conclusion, but shows up in ''{{Rahxephon}}'' TheMovie.
* ''AngerManagement'' had lots of this.
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor brings down [[spoiler:Harriet Jones]] entirely via this method. With six words. The six words were a trigger, and having the entirety of the media saying "Is it true you're unfit for office?" and "Are you going to resign?" put [[spoiler:Harriet]] over the edge. Those six words? [[spoiler:"Don't you think she looks tired?"]]
* One Creator/{{Loriot}} sketch ending like this:
--> '''Wife:''' Why are you so aggressive?
--> '''Husband:''' I'm not aggressive!
--> '''Wife:''' Why are you shouting at me, then?

* In [[TheYoungOnes The Young Ones]], this exchange:
--> '''Rick:''' (screaming in Neil's face) I AM [[PunctuatedForEmphasis NOT! GETTING! AGGRESSIVE!!!]]
