You can skip to the bottom if you don't wanna read all the spiel
So I am new here and this is my first ever post. I've read a lot about my personality type and agree with almost everything described. It has gotten me a lot closer in answering questions about my identity.
With that said, I shall continue with the topic subject. I have a really dominating F factor - I don't know what to do with too much emotional energy and it puts me at great anxiety for some reason. If I could change it I would. To me, thinking is a lot easier than feeling. But I cannot deny my feelings - even when they are inappropriate and illogical. They basically consume my whole thought processes and most conclusions I reach will primarily come from my feelings.
Thankfully, though, I have a strong N factor as well. It comes as a great tool in that it acts as my safety net. It filters my sometimes illogical, feeling-generated thoughts and actions. So it is critical at times, but I wished I had more of it than F. I like to believe that intelligence should always be put over emotions.
Also, I feel like the F puts me on the spot at times - causing me to be sensitive to anything. If anything makes me sad, I get reaaally down. And if something makes me happy it gets me tooo happy. My N can't do very much in such cases. I have a hard time rationalizing emotions just because they are too overpowering on my mind.
Anyways, only thought that helps me go forward is acceptance: I am what I am. Any attempt fighting it would go against nature and that would be a tough and long battle for which I have no patience. So I do imagine that there are pros for people who are strong feelers - or just have strong feelings. Is there a difference?
As for the pros: I find that if you are a feeler you will usually get the most out of good situations. If there calls for a time to be happy and joyful I can feel it 3x more than the opposite person. This is a double-edged sword though because on the flipside I will feel it 3x worse. I'm still trying to control that.
