    Default Emotionally Dead?

    Has anyone else experienced this? Lately, I've been feeling like my Fe has either withered or died and I'm not able to interact with or relate to people comfortably. I've never been even close to what someone would describe as "warm and fuzzy", but I have been able to understand and even empathize at times with another person's emotional states.

    So what's up? Is my Ti acting up or what?

    My first thought would be that maybe you are under stress or something is bothering you.

    Or that you'ld have started dealing with your own problems. What wouldnt be too bad if you havent done it before.

    Ti is more like emotionally blind. For Fe being emotionally dead it could mean that one is very submerged in own problems or, like Disney said, that something someone did bothered you and disappointed you moreso than you noticed.

    I have seen countless Feelers who exhibit almost no emotion.

    Introverts aren't going to be as expressive in general.

    INFJ under stress mode. It's a common reaction among introverted feelers to either emotionally withdraw from others under stress. Self-protective mechanism. Prolonged stress can result in this.

    It is very difficult to be warmth exuding and have generosity of spirit when you are not receiving enough fuel for life. Chances are you are drained because you are not aligned with the things and people you love. I find when I haven't been pursuing my passions or been receiving tender care from others my heart dries up like a raisin.
    With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.
