Have other 'T's experienced anything similar?
    Because you are an impure INTJ, and do not have the honed ability to detach your emotions.

    Either that, or you are simply more "sensitive" than others, despite the fact that you are (if you actually are) an INTJ. This is something which I believe to be biological, a reflex of sorts, which does not impact your rational decision making ability, but evokes a psychological or physiological response. Much like those with the very rare "Jumping Frenchmen of Maine" disorder, you cannot help your responses.

    Nah, I just think it's PMSing.

    I also have a weird thing with eyes. I see people tear up, I start tearing up. For me, doesn't have to deal with empathy or sympathy, I don't feel what they're feeling or feel bad for them, I just start copying their behavior. A drawback of my tendency to socially mimic I suppose.
    This. Some people have a stronger tendency for it than others, but it is fairly instinctive and normal for a social species.

    I'm sure hormones can play a part -- PMSing would make it really pronounced, but just having normally high levels of certain hormones (I am not going to take the time to sort out which ones because I'm lazy -- probably not testosterone, lol) would make it more likely to occur.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I have a bro who is a year older than me, when he went to primary school he was fairly ill so got put back a yeat so we both basically had the same childhood. He only has to breath in a certain way and I'm in bits. I do bawl like a baby quite often when someone cries (except when I think they are camping it up when I'm a lot harder)
