    Default I'm living life from a third person perspective

    I feel as if I'm living life from a third person perspective. Not literally of course, but that statement is the closest to the feeling i could get. Does this resonate with anyone else? Does anyone else feel similarly?

    I think it has to do with the way Ni makes me look at the world.

    INTP... I think not.

    It's an INTP thing, i've heard. Or maybe NT, i've experienced it a few times, and if i've done something important I always think of it in a very detached manner.

    Been there, done that. But usually that level of detachment for me comes with mild depression.

    Sometimes I do and I enjoy it because it fosters insight, but other times I wonder if it's a result of me retreating from my experience and taking shelter in my mind. Over time, that can leave me feeling very hollow, so I try and maintain some balance.

    I sway in and out of it. Don't see it as a bad thing. I've had some of my best business venture ideas when in a detached state...great for insight, creativity, and perspective.

    It happens to me when I do not get enough real-world action (last time I got it was after a 3-day-session of study for my last exam of my BS). It's a strange feeling I deeply dislike, and I tend to associate it with depression.

    The depression part might explain a few things, since the ENTJ shadow type is INTP, and this trait is usually assosciated with them.

    ENTJs shadow type is ISFP according to normal MBTI.

    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.
