    I do wish for someone to 'wrangle' me if it were. If you can get me to shut-up you know you control a very powerful talent. I usually start out pretty outgoing as a test to see if you can handle my most obnoxious moments. If I deem that you can I mellow out rather quickly. If I know you can handle the extremes (on occasions) I know I can trust you.

    Can I just beat you with a stick instead?

    At times that's the only thing that does it.

The times in my life when I could not release my emotions I did want to get in a fight or have someone hit me. During times of serious turmoil I have even punched myself in the leg or punched things because the emotional aching was worse than the physical pain. Just to unlock and unbottle and break up what was choking inside.

    Yes to Synarch's words! Tremendous insight here.
    The push and pull resonates so familiarly.

    I observed something akin to this in an ENTP, and it seemed to be part of his essential nature. In friendships, work life, relationships, love.


    We may be in the NT district, but I hope the INFJs take note.
    Ask yourself: attraction and repulsion, can you handle it?

    In this case I'm reminded of Shakespeare - "The course of true love never did run smooth"
    I hope everyone finds that perfect "wrangler".

    Man, you're iliciting a hug from me now. How DO you guys do that? lol.

    Well I guess I am similar in that when I'm really emotionally confused or stressed, it can almost become like a mild panic attack, just overpowering and I might start feeling physically ill, like I'm coming down with a cold or the flu. I usually cannot talk it out, easily, because it's bottled up BECAUSE I don't know yet how I feel or am still processing.. after enough of that I eventually have to cry as a form of release because my body has exhausted itself.

    I can account for this as well. I won't start the fight, but I wish someone would just come over to me and start fighting me so I felt justified to release my emotions. Or I'll just do something physically demanding in order to get the pain out (sometimes I take on too much though).

    Simple. Occasionally we drop the front and get real with people. It's like finding a pearl in a pile of dog shit.

    Yeah. At the risk of sounding like a huge faggot, it helps to make yourself cry if for no other reason than you have to flush everything out.
