    Wrong. There is totally a magical link between me and a person who does what I dream about.

    That's because you're investing your Fi into what the people are doing, and feeling it for them as if it were yourself. Talking about seeing this stuff on movies ISN'T REAL. Those people are acting, so you aren't really feeling their feelings.

    However, you're showing a deep empathy for suffering through your own Fi.

    I think true empathy is when you actually know another person needs you, or you can feel they are mad, like a real person...I can tend to only do this with people I'm very close to, but I'm sure people take on other people's feelings a lot, especially when Fe doms.

    I don't. My ESFJ ex used to do it. An ESFJ friend of mine also says she can take on other people's feelings, like people standing behind her.

    I know what she means, but I only used to be able to "feel" my ESFJ ex like that if he was behind me, like I swear to god I could feel him projecting his feelings outward. He would also cry over movies. I've done the thing on movies that Lady X is doing, but that's a clear example of Fi. You're internalizing ideas or images or scenarios as if it were you.

    I used to go away sometimes while I was chatting with JTG, and I would get this weird feeling of internal urgency, almost like an inner scratchy feeling, and I'd go up stairs and there'd be like 20 lines of "hello? what the hell? where did you go?"

    I also dreamed that we'd have a falling out, and the last time he contacted me I dreamed about him the night before.

    My ENFJ bff and I used to have this kind of connection in high school.

    I can't do it with everybody, though, it's like I have to be really centered on a particular individual, like have an emotional investment in them or something.

    I can't just pick up on just anybody's feelings like my ESFJ friend says she can. That actually sounds horrible to me.

    I do all of that, including the movies thing. Few people will go to a movie with me because everytime somebody gets hit or hurt, I scream and flinch. Movies can wear me out.

    Well what Lady X is talking about is Fi, because it's completely imaginary - those people are acting, they aren't really suffering, you're putting yourself in their place with your own Fi, and feeling it as if it were happening to you. That's Fi. That's how Fi works. You feel bad for people who are suffering because somehow you are inclined to internalize what other people are experiencing and "feel it."

    But that's not like Fe, because Fe doesn't feel things as though it were happening to themselves. However, I do think they may be good at projecting emotion outward, and taking on other people's feelings in the immediate environment.

    I'm not sure what function would explain my connection to certain others. Because it's only certain others. I can't take up shop as a psychic, because it seems like I can only do it with one, maybe two people, at the same period in my life. And I really have to spend a lot of time with them or feel close to them. It really does seem "metaphysical" so maybe it's tertiary Ni. It's one of the reasons I thought I was INFJ when I was like 17, and why I scored so high on Ni on Keys to Cognition before I really understood anything about the functions.

    Well, I, on the other hand, grew out of it. I started seeing it as silly and pointless, because movies aren't real. It's like a form of masochism to do that over something that isn't really happening.

    And I only do it with things that seem real or remind me of the real world. I've always been able to watch horror movies - in fact I LOVE horror movies (with the exception of "torture porn") because it's bullshit, it's not going to really happen.

    I enjoy movies a lot more now that I can remain detached from them. Having a Thinking function rocks.

    In my makeup, it's involuntary.
