So. Maybe some of you have noticed that my way of acting has changed in the last six months, maybe not.
Anyway, I am currently in a period of my life when Fi is running the entire show.
It's not just extremes or such, which used to be when I felt things.
As in being acutely aware of actually feeling things.
Gradually, I have become much more aware of myself and others.
Not the Fe/empathy thing, that i've always been good at.
It's got more to do with paying attention to feelings, really feeling other people, right and wrong, sympathizing
with others, going , acting out of emotion, being more "passionate" than I used to be...
Now, another thing is that I haven't actually been able to do a lot of "immoral" stuff that I used to do before, either.
I feel slightly nauseous just thinking about doing something really wrong.
My sense of morality is a bit medieval, I admit, but it is there and now it's sort of taken on a position where it
controls my actions rather than being a thing of convenience that can be swept aside when it isn't practical or in line with primal urges etc.
Now, I never was an emotard, like many NTs seem to be.
Some things have always gotten through to me.
But, here's the damn question.
Is this common for INTJs to experience?
Right now i'm feeling that I act about the same that an NFP would.
After all, I have spent a considerable amount of my life being awestruck by INFPs and ENFPs being all cute.
Crap, I just did it again!
I could have entire days without being moved by stuff.
Now it's like I can't watch TV, talk to people or read without feeling all sorts of crap.
It's definitely a more colorful world, but it is not simple.
Look, even this post is a damn mess.
The reason that I differentiate it from the Fi-vomits of ENTJs feeling like crap or such is that I have seen that happen a lot.
This is really different. It's more like I gained a sense or an angle on the world that I didn't have before in the same way.
In a way, I feel more like a child again, in the sense that I now observe the world with a greater sense of wonder than I used to feel.
I think I can blame this one on being around a certain pair of NFPs,
a couple of NFP friends and talking to a bunch of them online about everything and nothing.
It's freaky, though. It's like finding out you can suddenly breathe water and read the minds of fish.
Anyway, I really hope this crap doesn't change my type or anything.
So please, tell me if this has happened to you, too.
Is it permanent or will it go away?
