    ^^ blue...i'm a lil girl at heart too...a lil girl who says what's on her mind all the time without realizing how inappropriate it is.

    i am completely uncomfortable with negative emotions...like sadness...i hate to be comforted...i feel like i'm supposed to behave a certain way...and that hug...how long is it supposed to last...and it just makes it worse

    so i can do happy...and mad...if i'm really mad...but i don't like sad

    >.o I can't say I find it embarrassing all the time? In the situation you described, I'm more likely to be sympathetic for the two women. Outrageous behavior can be highly embarrassing for me though. Case in point: When my Aunt comes to visit our house and my neighbor gets arrested and electrocuted in our front yard.. Something that seems to reflect on my neighbor badly embarrasses me, as does ignorant drunken behavior at times. (There's a definite line between having fun and being creepy/rude)

    To the OP I usually roll my eyes and shake my head - if they want to be 'tards let them. I do get overly embarrassed at over dramatic emotions in movies, though. This is why most popular comedy I have an issue with while I laugh my ass of at people getting pounded on and beheaded.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    To the OP: Eww, yes. I *can* keep it together and comfort if need be but all the while I feel very agitated... I can feel what they're feeling - they seem 'naked' to me (and undignified, though I do feel bad for thinking that of others). It's more the case with public displays of overdone emotions. I have learned to be ok with pretty much any displays in private. Not manipulative crying or temper tantrums though.

    I am very private in my reactions, e.g. I wait until I'm alone to cry if at all possible. It's part of the reason why I would also prefer to elope rather than have a massive wedding should that happen.

    Despite being a Feeler I am like Erina in that I am comfortable displaying positive emotions but not negative ones... what's with that however, I don't usually have negative emotions when I am around people.. it's almost like I can be really upset oneminute but as soon as I see someone and begin interacting I get completely distracted and enthusiastic about their very presence so I suppose this is what's it's like to be a feeler AND very enthusiastic about people!!

    On the other, it can really creep me out and disgust me - if it goes too far. I'm not sure where that invisible dividing line is, at what point it stops being charming and starts being mawkish and barf-inducing. Or whether this is a subconscious reaction to perceived disingenuousness?
    Yes, that sort of sums it up for me, except nowadays I am much much better at dealing with people's emotions because I think I don't try to take responsibility for them.

    I think one factor is the "boundary" issue. I can handle people expressing their emotions, but I don't like it when emotions assault my boundaries or other people's boundaries, or are used manipulatively, or when people seem to be demanding that I be responding with the same emotions they're expressing or something's wrong with me. Both anger and smarm can sometimes just "gush" all over other people and then it's intrusive to me.

    I can't be around people given to emotional displays for very long, I find it draining. But equally being around people who are too cool and detached can be frustrating and demotivating.
    I agree with that too. Both extremes get old; one's exhausting, the other leaves me numb.

    Embarrassed by Displays of Emotion?
    If it is Others doing it...well, sometimes, yes. I dun exactly like those People who are all over-emo. Have some Persons like that in between my *Friends* and they just start to annoy me somewhen, because they become al "Ooooh, I am sooooo pooooor, bohoo". That's just...IDK, after a While I get annoyed, because in the Time People complain and cry, they could have figured out a Way to make "it" better.

    If it's about me...sometimes, yep. It depends a Bit.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    Embarrassment? No. Annoyance. people with emotional outbursts are the people I have no intention of associating myself with, they are people who I generally detest.

    If that happens to the opposing side of a debate, or something similar to that, where I actually take an active part in the whole ordeal, it basically completely destroys any value of credibility and respect I feel for that person unless I see a pretty darn good reason for the said behavior. If the emotional outbursts go to the "extreme" ends of the spectrum I tend to even go the infamous ways of argumentum ad hominem.
