So, I was complementing Sarah on her fox picture, because I love foxes, and it reminded me of something about myself that I've always wondered about.
I'd like to call it physical empathy (makes sense to me). When I read about/see footage of something painful, I feel bad for the animal or person experiencing it, yes, but overwhelmingly I feel an uncomfortable physical sensation relating to what's happening to them.
This doesn't happen exactly every time I see something like that, but often.
For instance, I once read about a fox having to gnaw his own leg off to get out of getting caught in a bear trap, and my leg actually felt physically disturbed... it felt like IT was being gnawed, without the level of pain I'm sure the fox had to feel. Even if I think about this, and yes, while I write this, my leg feels physically uncomfortable for the poor fox.
This might extend beyond empathy to other emotions.
When I'm very depressed, my hands and feet hurt with sharp nerve pains.
Anyone, I was just wondering if other SFPs (or any other type, for that matter, or any other people ) shared what I experience as a very physical emotional response.
