    Yeah in intense situations ISFPs emotions do get the best of them (which is why we hate conflict so much). And ISTPs tend not to understand. Which is hard for the ISFP to understand because of all times to have strong emotions, an intense situation seems like the most understandable.

    Good thing is, both types prefer to take some time alone to think and clear their heads. If I have to have a conflict with somebody, I think an ISTP is the best one. And if anything bad happens, an ISTP is the best person to have with you too.

    I think ISTPs do have have a lot of deep emotions, but maybe just need to be reminded once in awhile that its okay and it doesn't make them a drama queen And they don't necessarily have to talk about their feelings either, just process them as they come so they don't subconsciously build up.

    Yeah thing is I do tend to understand peoples emotions, I have High Fi and Ti so I can understand why they are feeling a certain way but i have problems goin out of my way to make them feel good. (Bad Fe).

    But when an ISTP does experience an emotion it's typically intense? Bursting into tears doesn't seem to be an uncommon occurance for an ISTP male.

    But it's a very rare situation where someone else is a witness to it.
    This is very interesting to me. Do you find that this help at all?

    It looks like Fs tend to bring this up a lot. Do Fs tend to build up emotions?

    I actually think strong Ts are less susceptible, if not immune from this. Probably due to the fact that we don't control emotions, and hence don't really develop the ability to suppress it.

    That reminds me, I did burst into tears when I had to argue with my ISFJ Mom, it won me the argument. Though I didn't consciously do it, it just happened.

    Seems like a good spot to respond to MDP2525's inquiry as to finding it helpful?

    I suppose it's like a pressure relief valve on a hot water heater. :steam:

    Does it help? I'm not sure, don't really dwell on it. Like Heinel says it just happens like the swell of a tide.

    Last year I went to visit an ISTP friend of ten years, they'd moved away and hadn't seen him in five months.

    We met up at a resturant for lunch when I got to town. Looked up and thought...omfg eh's going to cry. No dude! No! Not in the resturant!

    Then I thought oh, crap I feel the well! Quick stomp it down! If I even remotely look as if I'm about to loose it, eh' will too.

    So for the first five minutes after eh' sat down to eat, I was careful to pace the conversation until he recovered the facilities.

    Least for me, seems I go from even flow to occassional surprising emotional intensity. It's like a flat line with unforeseen peaks.

    I definitely think Fs are more susceptible to build up feelings. However, I do think some T's will try to suppress/control what few strong emotions they do have, simply because they are foreign to them. As I said, most times I can discount feelings I deem invalid and be done with them. But there are those busy times in my life that instead of working them out in my head and weighing their worth, I simply ignore them because I don't want to waste my time. Those are the times I think we just burst into tears like Slippy said.

    And I suppose that's happened a handful of times in the past 5 years or so. Actually there was one time where there were no feelings building up.. that I know of. But that involved a kitten that my dad pretty much told me I murdered by taking to the shelter. That's an exaggeration, but oh well. I just burst into a blubbering mess of tears in the middle of a busy restaurant. It was awful. Kinda humerous looking back though, because I remember trying to stop and have a normal conversation, and regain my composure, but it was just not happening. My dad and sister were frozen stiff, staring at me like they were suddenly believers in all things make-believe. Thankfully I went back and saved the kitten and I'd like to believe it lived happily ever after. Don't tell me otherwise, or I may have to kill you.

    Although every other time I've burst into tears usually involves at least a little alcohol and a subject I avoid talking about. So moral of the story, if you want to see an ISTP cry like a little bitch: tell them that they were responsible for killing a baby animal in the middle of a crowded restauarant, or try talking to them about "feely" topics they deem undesirable while they are inebriated. Although I don't think that will get them to talk about it. Just cry about it. So... that's kinda counterproductive....
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    I handle stressful situations like this. I simply dont think about the stress or the situation more than what is needed right now. If I finish everything great, if not I tried. Its not really a supression, but an ignore or avoidance of mental thoughts that would take me into those feelings to get done what needs to get done. I dont focus on everything, just whats on my plate right now, which is what I am working on right now, not everything that needs to get done. The future doesnt exist, the past doesnt exist, just what I am doing right now. As I finish this I will take on something else, or may juggle 2 or 3 things at once, but my mind doesnt leave those things and avoid being overwhelmed.

    When I am in this mode things get done, get done fast and I am going 90MPH. I dont feel the adrenaline rush, but I like being in the moment like this. I avoid the expansion of thought beyond right now to avoid breaking into tears or becoming emotional.

    edit: I guess to tie it into another thread I like chaos.
