Here's something that I seldom share with anybody-
I am very strongly affected by climaxes in music, movies, books, etc. It can move me strongly and leave me shaken for quite some time. I can get a very powerful high from listening to music, even when completely sober. Radiohead can do this to me (Let Down, Fake Plastic Trees) and quite a few other bands as well. When an orchestra and moves from a lull to an uplifting crescendo- absolutely love it. My hairs stand on end. I love it even more at live shows when you're in a good crowd. I could liken it to a religious experience. It feels like it lasts forever and it washes over every facet of your being. You know how when Paul Pott sang Nessun Dorma (search YouTube if you don't- well worth it) and the female judge exhales and tears up? I got that too.
Believable scenes of sacrifice, suffering, empowerment, crippling loss (with the appropriate music behind it) really resonate with me on a deep level, deeper and more powerfully than I'd ever dare to admit. I thought Transformers 2 was a rather blah movie- but the scene where the old Decepticon rips out his parts to revive/enhance Optimus Prime made me well up. This also applies to a lot of Disney/Pixar films- my NT side can easily identify the individual components that create the effect that I feel at these cliche moments, but it doesn't change how strong the feeling can be for me. I will root for the hero and weep for the suffering of the innocent... I have a much deeper capacity for empathy than I will ever dare admit, EVEN when it's obviously cliche. I was really, really upset when Sector 6 fell in Final Fantasy VII.
I can get extremely nauseated from watching a realistic depiction of violence- I'm not talking about the actual blood and gore but the context in which it occurs. (I love zombie flicks, for instance.) In Prison Break there was a very intense scene where Michael Scofield has his toe chopped off by the other prisoners- I get clammy, my vision blurs, my ears ring and I break out into a cold sweat because the pain seems so real inside my mind. I almost feel it happening to myself. There's a scene in P2 where a guy gets smashed to pulp by a car over and over again which doesn't bother me at all, but later on when the lead female breaks her fingernail off trying to reach her phone- and that gets me good.
Any other NTs feel this way?
