    Default Do other NFs feel like they observe their feelings more than live them?

    I have frequent intense mood shifts, but it is like I am observing the emotions more that actually living through them. Is that strange?

    It may be more of an e7 thing, then. I think I read e7 detaches when in the presence of strong emotion...

    No, the opposite. I could do better at telling the difference between my being and my feelings.

    Sometimes I laugh when I hear horrible things instead of doing a more appropriate response...then I feel guilt because it makes the other person feel bad.
    That said, I can recall the time I saw the dogs in the pool and even though I gave an appropriate response, it took a couple hours for me to actually authentically feel it, though I knew it was coming...
    Does any of that make sense?

    All of that is completely normal.

    E9s too. I sometimes feel completely distinct from but still affected by my strong emotions, like I'm clinging to a raft during a violent storm instead of actually becoming the storm.

    definite head type thing.

    we generally give the keys to our minds, and everything else is but a passenger in the car. it takes courage and skill to learn how to dive more fully into the feelings and allow them to speak to us as directly as possible, especially when in order to do so, the action is in letting go of our thoughts--our presumed sense of control (avoidance-wise)--and surrendering to what the truth of us is given how we relate to the situations and aims we find footing in.

    Interesting question.

    I don't identify as NF, and I do feel it as the emotions run through me. That said, when I feel something the first thought is the problem that's causing it and how it needs to be solved. 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.
