    I would have felt the same...very embarrassed about seeing both the arguing and the tears.
    I was raised by two feeling type parents.
    My sister is also an INTP and she and I would be regularly mortified by the way our parents interacted and how they interacted with us.

    I can't watch embarrassing things on TV without feeling more embarrassed for them than they probably 'are'. I always used to change the channel when I knew something was going to happen. I can handle it now, but embarrassment in any form is still painful for me.

Both anger and smarm can sometimes just "gush" all over other people and then it's intrusive to me.
    That's interesting. Can you give a concrete example of both situations? One of where emotions do not offend your boundaries and one where you feel 'invaded' by emotion?

    Wow, I didn't even know that this thread got resurrected! Awesome!

    At any rate, I had an experience the other day that reminded me of this subject. I was on the bus going home from the university, and this older woman sitting a couple of rows in front of me was talking on her cellphone. I usually try to space out as much as possible on these bis rides (because I kind of hate them), but she was talking extremely loud, almost to the point of screaming, and so I couldn't help but have my attention constantly raped by her annoying voice. At a certain point, her voice and manner became so animated that everyone began looking at her, and she just broke suddenly into these outrageously dramatic tears.

    I was torn between amusement (I get a sort of pleasure from witnessing absurdities related to my bus-taking experiences...and there are a lot of them) and embarrassment, but the latter ended up winning the day. I just wanted her to stop for her own sake, and when she wouldn't, I had the urge to get off the bus prematurely just to get away from her.

    I used to live in Albany, NY and got used to all bus-related weirdness. After you've seen someone urinate in the back of the bus, you become desensitized.

    Haha, I know exactly what you're talking about. I still do that. Some people are squeamish, other people are embarrassed for TV characters...

    Lol, no, nothing that bad has ever happened. I try to minimize my bus-travel time, so I usually only encounter other students (there's like three major universities in one small area) and the occasional bum/weirdo. It's worse at night. But the day someone takes a piss in closed quarters with me, I will never take the bus again.

    I don't really get all that embarrassed for television characters, especially if they're designed to make you feel embarrassed for them. I think a good example is Meet the Parents...I always felt more annoyed at the stupidity of her parents than embarrassed for Ben Stiller's character.
