I don't detach and rationalize/observe why I feel a certain way but I can see my emotions as their own indicator of what's wrong in my life that needs to be resolved. I think looking for how to resolve whatever negative emotion is burdening you is a more positive outlook/E7ish strategy.

    That said, I don't think it's related to head type much. When it comes to rationalizing emotions though I think of E5. Since you identify as E7 - it could be your line to 5.



    Didn't you mention on here once that you have Asperger syndrome? It could be that - people with it in my high school generally operated like that as well.
    I have always identified strongly with the head triad, though lately 6 more than anything. Yes, I was diagnosed with aspergers when I was little.

    I kinda relate to this, as well. I've always taken it as using intellectualization as a defense mechanism, though. For me, it's a very conscious effort to switch gears, so to speak. Feel, then hit the brakes, & analyze to deal with them, contain them, manage them (however you wish to phrase it).

    too lofty for me to attain.

    This is a sense-dom trait :}

    You're feeling them, methinks. And rationalizing you're merely observing them.

    I forgot, though, I typed you a sense dom....

    Are you suggesting I am ISTJ?

    ISFJ would fit better, since I always (attempt to) harmonize with others. I am always losing and misplacing things, so Si seems like a stretch, too, though I relate to Si far more than Se.

    I dunno. You just don't strike me Ne to any degree. Your intuition is in a band similar to what I've studied/know of Si types.

    I don't intend to turn the conversation to this. But, take @Evee's post. That seems more NFish.

    Does any of that make sense?
    They make sense, although I differ from them in my personal experience. We all differ in how we respond to such things.

    I relate to the first one somewhat - I have had weird responses to horrible news on occasion. The second one, not so much. I tend to think I need to deal with the emotions before taking action, but in some situations such as the above, that is obviously not an option. It takes strength from me to be effective at these times - as my health gets better, I become better at this. When I was at the bottom of my health, I was useless.

    But these sound like natural things, even if we are different types.
