    Ergh. I never really got over the scene in House of Wax where that guy gets his tendon severed. But that only horrified me because I know that it can actually happen under normal circumstances, and that it would be bloody painful (as well as just plain bloody).

    When I read Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince, I was equally disgusted at the beginning where Malfoy stomps on Harry's face and breaks his nose. Just thinking about it makes me cringe - I mean, I bashed my nose on the door by accident and that was painful. So I guess I'm only disturbed by things I can empathize with. Films with zombies and murderers with amazing abilities don't really scare me, because my Ti slaps my Ne in the face before it can speak up, saying over and over again: "Well that can't possibly happen because... No, shut your mouth, it can't possibly happen. Moron."

    But realistic injuries that could happen IRL? They get to me.
    Um, yeah.

I've noticed a pretty high incidence of shyness over at INTPcentral; although it's certainly not a random sample, I think it's telling.

    I have a feeling that the NT machine builds itself around anxiety as a method of reducing and controlling it. Not in everyone, but in a bunch of people.
    Awww... I miss Edahn.

    I hate them too. Mostly, I just don't see the point. I've never understood why one would pay to be "frightened" or what people get out of gruesome gore.

    But most INTPs seem to be into horror.

    I used to be afraid of spiders and was paranoid that there were cameras all over my house and in public bathrooms and stuff. Now I'm over both.

    Currently, I'm not really afraid of anything in particular, and I think I get scared too easily. I don't really like horror movies, not because I'm afraid of them, but because I always get so angry with how stupid the characters in them are that I just end up yelling at the TV screen and wishing they'd get their heads lopped off sooner. Plus, they tend to be kind of predictable. And I guess the fact that I don't mind gore kind of desensitizes the situation.

    Although I will say that I rung up some cheerleaders at JCPenney a couple of months ago. I can tolerate pretty much anyone, but they were beyond enthusiastic and cheerful. They were nice and seemed like alright people, but they had so much enthusiasm that oozed in such excess that it invaded my invisible psychological barrier. I don't really know how to describe it, but they just kind of freaked me out. I think if I saw another cheerleader, I'm sure I'd be just a little scared. o_o;;

    The only real phobia I have is acrophobia (for those of you that don't know, it's being scared of heights).
    Whenever I watch scary movies, I take in everything about them, then afterwards I try to rationalize all the stuff that scared me

    Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer.
