    @Population: 1 pretty much summed it all up quite nicely, really. When I'm experiencing the emotion, I sort of feel AND analyze at the same time...like, I do so in a way that doesn't define or close off potential emotions from falling into other categories and allow them some room to breathe and exist. However, in the background, I'm also processing what known emotions this new emotion is connecting to and how this new experience fits in to what I already know of myself internally. When empathizing with other people, I approach emotion just as any other data point in that, they reside on the same plane as science or other facts I know of the world. I don't typically feel much of anything of how the other person is feeling unless they let me in and I can piece together bits and fragments of emotion based on the context they provide me. Even then, if I feel emotional towards their situation, I realize it's more of a perceived, shared emotion rather than feeling what the other person actually feels. Well...is that even possible though? I wouldn't think so

    Edit: Just wanted to add, wanna know how to get me to metaphorically punch you in the teeth? Ask me more than once, after I've told you politely, "I don't know yet", to what I'm feeling over a new situation, (friends and relatives that pestered me asking this question soon after my dad died, comes vividly to mind) and I will be massively irritated.

    I'm constantly pulling in information from the outside world through perception, interaction, observation, that if someone were to even hint at what I'm feeling while I'm still trying to process those fresh emotions, it'll all start to feel muddled with excess tangents that don't lead anywhere when it comes time to analyzing those emotions.

    I will Analyze the negative ones or when I have conflicting emotions about something. Conflicting / multiple-things-going-on-and-factors can be a very tricky business. I'm often in a mixed emotion or multilayered state, though (ie not often is there only one emotion present), and I do find understanding the inner world / what's going on with me is extremely important - not only for myself but also it impacts how I respond to situations and other people. So yeah, having a handle on that is important.

    Type = I'll be typed differently based on whatever system/method you use - I'm not very extreme on more than one facet. At this point it doesn't really matter, though I am an introvert. Not INxP though.

    +10,000. Or being asked to talk about it before I've actually figured out wtf the issue may be or what my feelings actually are.

    This is a great point to make as I too find it to be true, in that I hardly ever feel "flat" with emotions. They always contain some 3 dimensionality to them, some spatial quality.

    I can't function if I don't. I have strong Psychosomatic reactions so I need to be on top of them.

    I analyze my feelings and already know most cause-and-effects that cause them inside my mind and experience. I also use my emotions to translate them into art. I figure it out rather fast, can analyze dreams quickly, and when I feel something I quickly know exactly why. In a few cases when I don't know right away then I do have to think about it for a while. I know my flaws and weaknesses also. I can fall into analysis loops when I know the cause-and-effect, but can't find a way out. In the cases I become overly-analytical there isn't a lot of new discovery, but more just a destructive negative loop the results from a lack of solution.

    What does bother me is when people try to tell me to stop feeling, or show me that my emotion is absurd. I can already know it's absurd, but that doesn't make it stop anymore than knowing what caused my nausea can magically make it stop. When an emotion is absurd but persistent, it is because it has been triggered from an earlier experience for which it was a legitimate response. It's because some earlier damage is fired up in my mind, so even the absurd is absolutely real, but just out of context. Also, once the process of a really intense emotion starts, there is a physiological response that has to complete itself. It is absurd to think that can stop on a dime - like an anxiety attack. I can figure my own way out and don't like it when other people oversimplify it by just saying "stop", like that hasn't occurred to me or I wouldn't do that if it were an actual option. That is extremely patronizing.

    I deal with emotional scars like someone missing a leg has to find ways to compensate to function as needed. I can't force myself to regrow a leg, but I can find ways to compensate and still get the job done, or I can decide something isn't worth the emotional trauma it will cause and not feel obligated just because someone else or society expects it of me.
    I wish I was on yonder hill 'tis there I'd sit and cry my fill, And every tear would turn a mill, Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.
    I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel, I'll sell my only spinning wheel, To buy my love a sword of steel Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.
    I wish, I wish, I wish in vain, I wish I had my heart again, And vainly think I'd not complain, Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.

    Yes. This is why I do it as well. It's a required filter.

    It is actually Te based, as it jumps quickly over the emotion/feeling to engage with the real world causes and effects.

    I can see where that would be annoying. On the other hand, asking me this at all will likely get a confused reaction from me, as I don't see the relevance; or a refusal to answer as it isn't any of your business.

    That is interesting , Fe/Te work very similar : get to the point no shit between.
    Ti/Fi seek more deep knowledges.
