    My depth of feeling would more likely be shown in more practical measures.(like driving them to the police station, making sure they felt safe, that sort of thing) I can't count how many times friends have screamed at me for not reacting to things straight away....
    Not that I'm defending AO, but lack of reaction doesn't equal heartless bastard.
    Some bad things you hear about people kinda leave me scratching my head too- I'm mean what are you suppose to do with that (or do about it). It's not that I don't feel bad...but I can't do anything about it either.

    And in talking about this, I suddenly think I understand the OP.
    AO, do you mean like situations as above?
    I may come across like I understand where you (as in NT) are coming from, but I don't really....it's more I identify with the situation.


    We're not coming from the same place, but the reaction is similar.

    Well you said some things before me so that means we are thinking similary here. Yes I am thinking about sitation like this.
    For example someone says to "My grandfather died last night". Ok you
    grandfather died I am sorry but I am wrong person if you want to have a cry fest in two.


    But this does not mean that I am talking only about this. This can be about positive stuff as well. Since impressing me is pretty much mission impossible.
    So I am one of those people that are standing in the background and roll eyes. I have stoped to celebrate my birthdays exactly because I did not get anything form them. I haven't celebrated my bithday for last 14 years and to be honest I am not bothered by this.

    When I was a kid I needed to read novels and poetry but I found it to be a quite a waste of time. Since iI could not relate to anything and I have rolled my eyes on pretty much everything that is "for the kids"


    I remember that at the first grade I made a lot of other kids cry by claiming that the entire Christmas-Santa-Presents thing is nothing but a phantasy/fraud.



    I am sorry but I am a Grinch.

    I am well aware of that. I know exactly why it horrifies people but I have managed to convince people that are closer to me that I am not a bad person.


    But all of this does not mean that I can't make a joke from time to time or normally talk to people. I am not lost in my life.

    I have a habit of showing up out of nowhere as well; my mother and a number of girlfriends have jumped a few times because of me. I also tend to function in the dark untill my roommate comes home and wonders why all the lights are off. I don't have the intense look though, so that probably helps my case out. My supervisor often teases me saying "I'm nice to you so that when you go postal you won't kill me".

    Lastly, one girl I used to date ended up calling me cold to her friends and said that was the reason why she stopped talking to me. She never gave me the chance to tell her that my only other option was one that would be debilitating. I guess when I'm trying to be strong for someone else and needing to still get things done in life I end up coming off as cold.

    I will say, however, that I am lucky that both my roommate and my supervisor are ENTPs so they're not always poking at me about if I'm ok all the time. It's kind of nice when the only issue seems to be my social awkwardness.

    Blue Monday, I wish to hug you with my stiff cold robot arms in a most passionate-styled fashion.

    When I said "convinced" I meant that I have convinced them that I am not a complete psycho and that there is no need for them to call the police.
    But people still think that I am quite weird.


    I mean I understand at superficial level like "Ok you are not too empathic you could be a bad person". I what makes sense.
    But all of this are mostly my conclusions. So I could be wrong about a lot of things. Especially since this is not "my field".



    Btw. this thread was not designed to be just about me.

    Great! This thread should be about me.

    Why? Because I totally unequivocally understand NTs. Why? Because I'm awesome like that. Why? Because God came to my house and said, "You know what? I've read your application to be Cosmically Awesome and I approve. Go forth and awesome all over the place in an awesome fashion." Why? Because God has great taste in people. Why? Because someone has to. Why? Because then everything would be rather homogeneous and monochrome, which are both big words. Why? Because big words are always at least 8 letters long. Why? Because I say so. Why? Because God said so. Why? Because I'm "talent". Why? Because "talent" will make a cool slang tag word at some point and I plan on spreading it, along with my Cosmic Awesomeness [tm], at the next party I attend. Why? Because I like robots.

    ooooh. I see.

    AO, What are you seeking? Validation that you're not a bad person?

    Maybe it is disturbing but I don't think that this is a bad trait if you take a look at the big picture.

    Opinions?
    You seem quite anxious about this whole topic. Why is that?

    Does it bother you that people think you are weird?

    AO, I don't think psychopaths spend a lot of time worrying over what others think of them. They spend more of their time thinking how to manipulate to play power games. They usually are good at mimicking empathetic behaviors to get what they want from others. They are con men.

    Shit Blue, just looking at your selection of his statements that reminds me of a good numbe of my own insecurities - some I've dealt with, others I'm still trying to beat on.
