Strongly emotional people with strong expression of emotions are very uncomfortable for the strong T's I know (and i have lived with one for almost 15 years now). But of course, I'm making a generalization here (and you were too).I don't see their behaviour as rational but it would be irrational to clam that this is something totally unacceptable. Since this is your natural framework.
Strong T does not feel uncomfortable in emotional sitautions since he/she does not feel the sitautions. The more F you add the more uncomfortable the situation will be for a T. Until you hit the point where the person just blends in.
2 things that I have seen repeatedly with some strong T's:What makes you think that I (or some other T) thinks that they are empathic? There is no way that I am empathic as a person. The only thing I am claiming is that I can deal with this and I don't find emotions particually confusing.
- I can rationalize feelings
- I can rationalize empathy
Some of them say that they got it, they say they understand emotions, they say that they can manipulate people emotionally, but in real life situation you see that they have no clue. So, they have thought it through theoretically but in real life it simply doesn't work. (And I'm making generalizations here too.)
Yes, but if you don't understand the feeling itself, you miss the core of the whole thing. You see the cause and the reason but you don't see the process that is the key thing.I don't understand the feeling itself but I understand what will case which feeling and how each person will react to given situation. What means that I use N qute alot here.
However just because I understand all of this that does not mean that I will always respect their feelings. Especially if I see that their feeling leads to disaster/problem of some kind.
Respecting other feelings is something else. But do you really pick up other people's emotions just by looking at them or do you need to see what happens before and after to understand it?
