    I'm a very emotionally charged Thinker. Feeling isn't so much about emotions themselves, but ethics -- and your ability to handle emotions properly. People with weak introverted Feeling in general have trouble keeping a firm grasp of what they really feel, and what they want.

The only times I've actually opened up and basically screamed out what the problem was, I was on some kind of drug.

    This is also the my main explanation on why I seek emotional music and art. Because they show me something I couldn't express in a thousand years on my own.

    Nice.

    I do this myself. Music lyrics really help me figure out what's going on inside myself emotionally.

    For once I agree with you.

    yeah man. Fi is complicated.

    making the analogy between Fi and Ti makes it so much easier for me to understand why NTPs make sense to themselves yet usually don't make sense when they talk about their logic to me. i'm sure to them i must sound the same way O_o;

    An ESTP I knew was quite emotional and didn't have much of a problem showing her emotions. She would probably be mistaken as an F to many people because of that, but she was definitely a logical thinker.

    A good friend of mine is an ESTP with a history of mild depression in his family. In this sense I guess it did help him develop and F side, he knows his emotions quite well.

    Most of the time, I'm pretty controlled and calm, but when I get under stress and can't release or express it, that's when my emotions get out of check. A few times I have just completely reached my breaking point, and then I'm just a complete wreck for a week or so :/

    So in other words, yes, T's can be pretty emotional at times.

    I really wish 'feeling' and 'thinking' in mbti would have been exchanged for more appropriate words from the very beginning. It's caused so many misconceptions. I have always thought 'ethical' and 'logical' would have made more sense...although those words would also carry some kind of face value misconceptions to people.

    Totally.

    The implication is that Ts aren't emotional - and they very much can be, and the most fucking infuriating part about it is that they think since they are Ts, they aren't being emotional.

    It's like...yeah...if you're always going off about things, or are excessively bitter and cranky...you're still being emotional. I know a couple of people on here that I interact with quite regularly who seem oblivious to their own emotional behavior.

    Which does make me wonder if Ts are less likely to realize they're being emotional, or maybe even are embarrassed of their emotions. T doesn't mean unemotional, but it can imply a certain discomfort with feelings.

    I know a lot of times when I post on here I'm not being emotional, I'm being tongue-in-cheek or exaggerating or even being ridiculous and funny and people think I'm being "emotional" because I'm an NF. It makes me wonder if I changed my user name and type if certain people would begin to read the tone of my posts differently.
