    I'm not looking for anything in particular. I'm hoping this post evolves and expands on its own.

    I don't know that it will. Odds are those with the most to say will be the least repressed emotionally and those with the least to say will be the most emotionally repressed, so, at the end of the day, there is little hope

    what if the people who think they're repressing emotions actually aren't and don't have emotions but they think they do because if they admitted, they didn't have emotions to themselves. it would mean they were less human. and there for no longer have rights and the universal declaration of human rights no longer apply to them? so my question is, is it our emotions that make us human? or is it our thoughts? or physiology, what makes a human a human?

    Perhaps the definition of human needs to be changed to accommodate those without emotion. Human, in the way you are using it I think, means empathetic, sympathetic, and able to feel. It need not necessarily be the definition of humanity. Our emotions make us human, our thoughts make us living beings. But then again, they are closely linked/related.

    Repression means that particular thoughts and feelings are hidden from ourselves. And usually they are hidden because experiencing them as small children threatened our survival.

    Unfortunately we often carry these repressed thoughts and feelings into adulthood without examining them.

    But if we do examine them as adults, we find we can now survive as adults even as we experience thoughts and feelings necessarily repressed as small children.

    One of the psychological means of repression is psychological defence mechanisms.

    And this is why mbti is so popular. Mbti is a psychological defence mechanism that gives us a feeling of control and safety at the expense of spontaneous thought and feeling.
