    Default Why I'm a total wuss when it comes to horror movies..

    I love (well-made) horror movies, I love the adrenaline rush, the suspense... the everything. And at the same time, I'm traumatised by them, I jump the highest and I'm screaming on the inside (well, 6'4" men do turn a few heads when they scream outright).

    I have a theory for this; we ISFPs are most in touch with our senses of sight, hearing... etc. and are most affected by them. Now, I'll most likely be the one making the biggest fuss over a beautiful painting and, at the same time, I'll most likely be the one jumping the highest at a monster on a movie-sized screen or a suspense building orchestra crescendo.

    So, that's my theory of why I'm a horror movie wuss.

    Because of my type.

    Any reputable journal likely to let me write a full-length well-researched article on that?

    That's a kick ass theory... I never thought of it that way but makes sense.

    Well I do know some N types that get jumpy watching these movies though.

    Me personally, I am that asshole talking throughout the movie the whole time, pointing out everything that was stupid, fake, or strange in the movie while its going. I have a knack for making a horror movie into a comedy. Honestly though, I cannot watch a movie by myself, I am seriously bored to tears no matter what the movie.

    Aaaarggh, you people drive me crazy!

    I do try telling myself "it's only a movie.... only a movie... that actress right there that gets ripped in three by a mutant crocodile got up and grabbed some lunch as soon as the take was over... only a movie" but it never works!

    I'm totally freaked out also and can't watch them either. If I do, I'll have nightmares and think about it for years.

    I can't watch any really violent movies either for the same reason.

    Lol, I know, I really do feel really bad after the movie when I hear the people mumbling things like what an ass etc... I then know that I ruined a movie. $100 bucks says it would be kick ass to watch a movie with a 6'4" guy that not only screams out of fear (or what not) but could probably also kill me with his bare hands if he had to.

    Don't like horror but feel this way about thrillers, I loooove them but the good ones totally freak me out, dunno that I'd say I get traumatised but they can stick with me

    Guess you can strike me down as an NT wuss who likes punishing herself.

    I think this is very likely S/N.

    Films like "Don't Look Now" or "Picnic at Hanging Rock" I find far more frightening than 'horror' movies. And PaHR is a PG.

    Atmosphere, ambiguity... stuff that plays with the mind rather than the senses.

    I don't need anything explicitly frightening to keep me from being too scared to sleep at night.

    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Do you like others to help with punishing you?
