    Thinking my son is in danger....I should also add I am an aggressive panic-er.

    It's not pretty.

    Do we INTP's ever show panic outward? I am not sure we are wired in a way that we are capable of doing that.

    To others it may appear like a pause, or like we're drifting off in our minds, which happens all the time anyways. So no, it's not really detectable as panic.

    I don't panic, I just feel uncomfortable. And every time I don't have the graps of things, I feel that way. And then I try getting the grasp back again, and it's over.

    You know, some people say lack of panic, hence lack of care for self, is a sign of depression.

    That said, I know what you mean. A good ENFP friend of mine accused me of the exact same thing once

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    My father panics out of fear and out of control to instill fear and control.
    Haven't the foggiest. I become anxious, I haven't had panic attacks per say.
    I've seen people who have, its sometimes more to do with other people.

    Hahaha unless I was asked to fall out of an airplane or go bungee jumping that would almost do it.

    Spiders
    Expectations from others on things I suck at
    Getting on stage (ties in with expectations, which gives me stage fright)
    Not being able to get an oversight on a situation i cannot escape.


    Mmm. I usually look easy going, but hit one of my panic buttons and I'll turn into that deer responding to those headlights before you know it. Spiders are the worst though. Serious fight or flight response there, and all reason goes out the window

I have had the feeling of panic in my life but it has been in the context of losing a loved one or a non-life threatening scenario.
    Beyond adolescence, my experience has been similar. Two potentially lethal situations — nearly hit by a car and caught outside in a derecho — left me puzzled and surprised, really, but neither disoriented nor actually afraid.

    In recent years, I've become even more focused in crises. Visiting my parents, once, I was with the two of them when a neighbor's cat skulked past the window and excited one of the three household cats to the point of blind aggression. Inevitably, the other two pets approached and became targets of the third in what was shaping up to be an ear-piercing, fur-flinging free-for-all in the family room. While my parents shouted and pleaded and waved their arms, I calmly moved up to the standoff and placed objects between the animals, then sternly dissuaded my father from later trying to "calm" one of the frazzled three by pulling him out from under a table.

    Similarly to you, social situations — especially convention-driven interactions best accommodated by Fe — are what have unsettled me, especially when I was younger.
