    I think this could be because narrative (when well-done) forces intimacy / identification. In life, my view of things just has a much wider scope. If I could easily access that personal perspective in life, I'd possibly cry just as easily.


    Could that be what life is like for someone with Fi?
    I have Fi and I feel much the same as you do. Movies and books are about the only thing that can get me to cry normally, with the exception of seriously traumatic life events. Well, Fi probably does make me more reactive to certain things, but it tends to be less personal and more conceptual (like the suffering of a population, as opposed to an individual). I imagine it is very different for someone with a primary or secondary Fi though.

    I have the fictional reality thing as well...

    Horrible stuff can happen in the world, that I find extremely horrible, but don't shed a single tear.

    Yet plenty of movies I do shed a tear or get watery eyes!

    Why is that. Seems like mismatched priorities to me. :P

    Ooh! There's also the scene in Millennium Actress when she sees the note and the picture of herself in the ruins! It makes me want to hug my pillows.

    I don't think it's mismatched priorities. It's just more personal when you give your brain over to someone else and follow their journey. When watching tragedies on the news, I am not intimately and mentally involved.

    The last time I bursted out in tears in reality was when a drunk faggot crashed a Mercedes Benz 320 TE special edition from 1992 into a traffic light at nite and I had to drive by it.

    The police only managed to get the other cars slowly past the crash site, therefore driving slowly made it even more painful

    I mean, I've watched lots of depressing movies (I'm talking about you, Boy in the Striped Pajamas) and read lots of sad books, but the only one to ever make this T cry . . .

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    I have no idea why. Anyway, I'm not alone, am I?
    Nope. Never cried because of books, movies, music, etc.

    I only once cried because of a book, but I was crying because I laughed incredibly hard at a book with pictures of cats and kittens while on mind altering substances.

    I can't remember ever crying about a movie.

    What does make you cry? Something must have.
