    Default Developing feeling from an NT's heart and mind

    I have only recently started developing feeling in my life. Its been one heck of an experience that I would love to hear about from others.

    For me, the topic of this thread is kind of a oxymoron...Feeling is from the heart. Thinking is from the mind, however in order to try and help "see" what its like for someone that does not have great depth of feeling, you would have to "think" about how to interpret and convey it. You will not be able to understand the experience it like objective thought.

    I can tell you that it is a wholly new view of the world, both mine and others. I can now see why it doesn't lend itself to speaking clearly about it.

    There is, a sometimes terrible revelation that my feelings were very low in volume. I liken it to an equalizer on a stereo system. While a F might have a furiously high bar of emotion, I hardly had a smidgen at times. Other times I had lots of emotion, but it wasn't just felt and experienced. It was like a foreign entity that entered my consciousness and was something to be analyzed and deconstructed.

    My analogy is like a photo developing process. Previously, my emotions were experienced as a negative of a photo. A strangely highlighted object that was peered at thru the lens of a scientist. What the heck is this? Out came the rational thinking mind. It was like an outline of something that didn't have full expression.

    Now, it is totally different. It is a full blown color photograph! It is felt and not analyzed or thought about. It is in the body and not the mind. It is heart and compassion and empathy. Wow, what an incredible gift! I am so aware of it, but it is settling down into what I would say is an appropriate balance between feeling and thinking.

    I experience myself in a wholly new way and I love it. I especially enjoy that my thinking turns off now. WOW!!! Freedom...from thought!!! It really is an incredible respite for me. I must say that it is not always happening like a feeler, I am sure, but I finally have something that I never really understood. It was meant to be this way. I gotta say that if an NT or maybe thinkers in general develop this, you will KNOW it. There is no doubt and you will not have to think about it at all. I feel my heart as I write this and it such a feeling of deep peace and rest. It feels so very good to finally have this.

    Please, if any of you would like to share your comments or FEELINGs, would love to read them...

    Nothing much to say, except that I can entirely relate.

    I feel a similar sensation when I develop my Te (inferior). It's like WOW a break from all these feelings! This feels weird! I am not thinking about my interests, I'm not thinking about how I feel about something, I'm not taking in everyone's emotions. I'M USING LOGIC!

    You NTPs probably don't even know how Fi feels. It's crazy. Then again I'm guessing Fe is just as crazy, since I don't really use mine.

    Well my Fe was always very well developed. But there were times where i was heavily neglecting it and denyings its existance. Thinking by denying its existance i can find the ultimate truth. That logic rules the world.

    I scrapped that crazy theory, now i'm happier as a person and able to see things from two perspective. Interpersonal relation got alot better with my family and friends. My intuitive choices are even more accurate than before as it accounts for both factors.

    I'm like turning into a ENTP, i swear. its only a matter of time i think.

    Lol, how? Applying logic to the REAL world as I see it and then making decisions around that is pretty insane to me. Then when I apply how I feel to that it gets even crazier.

    It's the entp legacy and someday sometime, there will be a girl who understands Introverted Feeling. If not, start reading this sentence from the beginning.
