an inheret problem in language is its inability to express emotion properly.
suppose someone comes to you and tell you that they have been raped. they try to explain to you how this experience made them feel. they use words like "horrible" and "freightening" but (assuming you havnt been raped) you find it hard to relate to this person's experience. i mean, what more would you know about how they felt than you know about Hell when someone tells you it is hot and dreadful? (to borrow the words of our fellow infp, Franz Kafka). what i mean, is that emotions are like colors, they can't be described by mere words.
and i think the alienation and loneliness that comes with the realization that language is an inadequate means of expressing ones emotions hits us infp's expecially hard.
of course, this is just speculation based on my own experiences, but would guys agree? have any of you felt this way?
have any of you found a way to communicate ones emotions by other means?
