I thought the "split brain" example was inspired.
For a long time that's what it felt like. I could deal with simply traced emotions as long as I was apart from others; once i started getting enmeshed in relationships I couldn't just retreat from, then things got very confusing for awhile.
My approach then was to ignore emotion until I couldn't; then let myself lash out or freak, hopefully to push people away; but if they would not let me off the hook then, I was just such a mess. Couldn't think clearly at all, completely overwhelmed. Realizing that i couldn't just avoid the emotions in the end forced me to wade through them and figure them out and deal much earlier.
I'm tired. My brain is fuzzy. I probably do not have a lot of unique things to add.
Except I liked Digest's comments too, about awareness extending beyond the emotions. I am very very aware of expressed or even mostly suppressed emotions (because they give me cues as to what someone else is going to do or what their motivations are) but they aren't the most important thing, just ONE thing, in the conflict to consider. So it's not that I do not see them, it's just that I place less importance on them overall than others might. But those who prioritize them would feel like I was ignoring the feelings. (And maybe earlier in my life I did do that, I was much more dismissive of emotions as "extra baggage" that would ruin the clarity of my and others' thinking... but as I got older, I valued them more and more.)
NTs also do objectify emotions a great deal. They are things to analyze and explore and look at and figure out, less things to own and wear and identify with. Like Lulah says, it takes some time to also embrace them as well as sift through the nuances of what exactly one is feeling, once one decides to accept their emotions as part of them rather than alien things.
