    Default Is it more or less difficult to be a feeler

    Who is extroverted or introverted and why?

    They're both difficult in their own special way.

    I always thought maybe being T it would be easier to "maintain" like not be as upset by certain things, and like be able to function better alone and not be as dependent upon relationship harmony. etc.

    On the other hand, sometimes I feel like I'm more alive as a feeler, like I feel everything so deeply, so I wouldn't trade it.

    I have no desire to be a Thinker, although I realize it could make it easier to act independently and calmly.

    Then again, some people say emotional intensity isn't a feeler thing but just a characteristic that some people have. I've sure as hell seen some "emotionally intense" behavior in IxTJs quite opposing their usually stereotyped robotic, detached manner.

    These questions are so strange to me. I mentioned it before... how could a "feeler" have any point of reference to compare and contrast with "non-feelers"? Its just silly to me. As a feeler, I might be more sensitive to things.. but I'd never give up being a feeler because well, I love myself, I naturally have a preference for it, and I sincerely believe that emotions ARE intelligence. Infact, the idea of being emotionally unaffected and flat in life is fucking horrifying! Beign a feeler is only difficult when other people do rude, thoughtless shit, and care more about the bottom line than people. (And ya, feelers can do this too when unhealthy or sucked too far into an ideal.) Aside from that.. I love that I can read peoples moods, know exactly what to say or do to heal another, can look at a piece of art and connect, can feel music resonate within me. I love being enthusiastic, and seeing my enthusiasm affect those around me. I'd rather FEEL alive than think alive, anyday. I mean, if your wondering if the world is harder on feelers than thinkers.. I don't think you could compare it this way.

    I think the OP is actually asking whether extroverted feelers have it harder than introverted feelers, although I may be wrong.

    I'm an extrovert, for the record.

    If you mean if I think it's more difficult to be an ExF or an IxF, I think IxF's have a harder time of it..
    If you're asking if us feelers have it more difficult than thinkers, I think we have it easy when it comes to sorting ourselves out and expressing it to others.. but what I struggle with most of the time is validity and the general apathetic nature of others.

    I think ExFx might have a harder time in a way sometimes, though, because we can be more expressive and can embarrass ourselves with our feeler-ish ways more easily...IxFx can hide it better.

    I don't think it's just me, either, though it may not apply to every single ExFx.
