    Default NF hypersensitivity

    Would you call yourself hypersensitive?

    Sensitivity implies acute awareness of an entity, so in this case I have in mind an acute awareness of emotion.

    you know it all depends how attached I am to the person or situation.

    The closer and more linked I am the more hypersensitive I become. The more distance I have the less I notice things.

    So I can't really answer the question

    I mean in general. Acute perception of feelings. Like NTs tend to be acutely aware of thoughts and are always analytical...this is the parallel that I am drawing..

    To the extent I am a feeler, I am acutely aware of nuance, and feel what I do feel intensely, although I don't take the latter very seriously.
    Let's do this thing.

    alright so I personally do tend to pick up on the 'undertones' if you will of the situation. Unspoken vibes I guess you would call them.

    Isn't it possible for NTs to be hypersensitive and NFs to be acutely aware of their thought process?

    *blinks* That is topic dependent isn't it? NTs can be hypersensitive about their own ideas... NFs can be overly aware of their thoughts towards themselves and their relationships with others.

    No. All NTs are robots. We aren't sensitive about anything. No passion for anything. No reaction to anything.

    NFs never think. That's why they are Feelers. They would never reflect on their own way of thinking of things.

    Sensitive? Yes. Hypersensitive? Hell no.
    There is no such thing as separation from God.

    Exactly. I have no idea what BlueWing was thinking.

    Of course, that doesn't upset me. Nothing does. I was just stating an observation. Of course. Yes. That was it.

    Oh dear. This really does not bode well for the theory. Now what should I think?!

    .... gee, i think my logic circuit is stuck in "sarcasm" mode today. Someone call a technician...
