    Stumbled across something while reading Gen's link above-

    Dissociation (psychology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
    Carl Jung described pathological manifestations of dissociation as special or extreme cases of the normal operation of the psyche. This structural dissociation, opposing tension, and hierarchy of basic attitudes and functions in normal individual consciousness is the basis of Jung's Psychological Types.[5] He theorized that dissociation is a natural necessity for consciousness to operate in one faculty unhampered by the demands of its opposite.
    I'd say that may account for a lot of the "dissociation" I experience, as the bulk of it happens during periods of sustained analytical thought, where I feel dissociated from my emotions and usually put on a rather emotionally-barren facade to people around me.

    Yep. There was a big thread (might've been in the spirituality forum) called 'Do you ever...?' where lots of N's talked about how ethereal they felt, like they weren't really 'here' in their lives, but somehow disconnected. I don't think anyone thought of putting it like that though, nice one

    By the way, shouldn't this thread be called, "He's living life from a third person perspective"?

    Right on man. I don't really mind the disassociation. It gives me an ability to think outside the box that people are thinking in since I'm "observing" for lack of a better term (anyone wanna make one up?). You get a sense of what's really going on and all the ambiguities in perception that arise. It can be frustrating sometimes though when you have to make an interaction decision cause now with all that extra knowledge it's not like you can just be impulsive.

    I'm really good at pretending to be interested and following conversations and doing all the appropriate facial expressions and tonations and such as i analyze though. It seems like I'm participating but really I'm in my own head.

    If you use Beebe's definition of the shadow, you'd get ESFJ as the shadow. In Beebe's system, the Ti and Ne functions would be the 5th and 6th shadow processes (respectively) for an ENTJ, but the actual "shadow type" would not be INTP.
    If you take those four in the same order, they would be INTP. ESFJ would be all eight in the reverse order. I would say both are "shadow", for they both use the four ego-dystonic functions, though in different orders. In the older use, only the primary four in reverse order are the "shadow".

    I have little to add to discussion, but the thread title reminded me of this passage from The Dubliners:

    He lived at a little distance from his body, regarding his own acts with doubtful side-glances. He had an odd autobiographical habit which led him to compose in his mind from time to time a short sentence about himself containing a subject in the third person and a predicate in the past tense.

    I tend to look at situations from the third person, especially when dealing with strong emotions. It's not something I choose to do, it just happens to make it easier for me to make a rational assessment. I'm not sure if this is what you mean but it's been described to me as "minor disassociation".
