    Everyone always tells me to stop observing and join life. Its typical with Enneagram 5s, too.

    ya, same here, it happens to me frequently ... feels like a mild depression. Whenever I get out and go somewhere, or do something moderately intense with other people around (preferably people who aren't depressing or stressing to be around), it goes away. I think it's like atrophy of the senses.

    I often get locked into some mental exploit like net-heading, reading, or fantasizing, and forget the real world exists, but I don't think I ever feel as if I'm a character in my own life. I am my mind, first person all the way.

    There's two ways to take it really. There's the way people mean it when they say that I'm observing, which just means I'm being too passive and then there's the other, disassociated feeling. When I'm really really tired or really really stressed or depressed I'll get that too. You know you're not obviously, but its a very strange detached from the world feeling.

    It happens when you feel depressed. It's like you're watching the movie of your own life, and you have no control over what happens.
    Maybe you could try to check the root of that.

    I'd agree with many of the others here.
    This mindset is most often associated with depression or social anxiety.

    Sometimes I try to look at things from a third-person perspective if I'm in an unpleasant or stressful situation that I don't want to experience...

    By the way, shouldn't this thread be called, "He's living life from a third person perspective"?
    (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

    Fck. I read that stuff. Most of us have never been sexually abused as young ones.... or stuff like that
    propably its an intuitive think that we always see (bad) possibilities (in social interactions) that can turn to anxiety and cause to much stress on our nervsystem and we loose touch of reality.

    Yeah, I definitely get the whole third person perspective thing. The more depressed I get, the more detached I get. It makes sense as a coping strategy, especially for people that had a childhood where they didn't feel safe. But now it's not a good strategy anymore, and we all have to learn to work on it...
