So here's what I want to know (inspired by the Mock Emotions thread):
1) When you talk about feelings/emotions, how do you experience them?
Well there's other times when I talk about feelings/emotions in just an analytical, symbolic way.
An extremely enlightening way this thing was represented was in the second Matrix movie, I believe.. or was it the third?
Neo was discussing with a program, wondering why he felt love. "Isn't that an emotion?"
-No, it's just a word.
So, one part when I talk about emotions is just word processing. I hope you're not overly disappointed of the fact.
Quite very often I'm in the mood to go by my feelings alone. My profile type info gives my type as TiFi and that's no joke. Those are my top two functions. So more often than usual for an ENTP I give in to a deep discussion, funny, cute discussion.. play on feelings.. perhaps a touch, smile, good music.. I'll just feel and live, but I don't necessarily feel the need to talk about it. If I'm sharing a great moment with someone.. like great concert with some friend of mine, or some awesome evening with a lady friend, that's more because we tune in to the feelings, and we share them.. not because we would talk that much about them.
But when I do talk about feelings, it's most often an intense, deep two-person heart-sharing episode. Then I'm open and I feel like .. oh It's hard to describe. It consumes me. It takes every bone in my body.
2) Do you always go on your feelings? Do you feel that your emotions are "trustworthy?" Do you ever feel like your view of a situation is clouded by your personal feelings?
I'm mostly a thinker, but almost even on being a feeler. Many logical, sensible things follow from being a thinker. Yet, that leaves very much in the open. I think most of the days my feelings play a big part of what I do, if not the most. Really. It's more like feelings tell me what I should do, and thinking how I should do it.
Emotions are one base on which I based my life after suicide feelings. So yes I trust them, care about them and cherish them. It's my reality to enjoy illogical feelings and where they take me, and it doesn't make me less of a wise man, quite the contrary.
I think my personal feelings cloud my judgement perhaps 2 times a month in mostly minor issues.
3) How does the feeling translate into action?
I live in the moment, I am open, I want to share experiences and my internal self with the people. I may be motivated, exhilarated, and I do a lot then. I let my feelings influence my general mood rather lot, but there's a certain "playground area" I allow for them - it's a very large area, but in the end, it's my Thinking that's the Border Guard. My feelings taking me away from the area without a valid passport, my Border Guard says "access denied", most often. It's the rational thought processes that are my king and my president in the end. I like how the work and the responsibility is shared between my right and left brain
4) Anything else you feel like sharing. I'm just a T, so I'm not even sure how to word all this in F language.
