When you look at someone you find attractive...at an extreme level doesn't feel so extreme that you want to avoid that feeling?
Or maybe a song or musician... Someone or thing that so appealing to you that you can't bear to listen the feeling is too powerful. I get that with Regina Spektor music... It's just so special that I just can't listen to it... I'd rather listen to some abstract instrumental experimental music.
Or maybe a child that is just so adorable that it's too much to interact with them...
I don't like to feel extreme things, either good or bad... For me I'd rather exist in an intellectual, abstract, grey middle ground.
Except for humor though... If I was told that a movie was going to make me laugh the hardest I ever laugh, is watch it In an instant. If I was told that a movie had the most endearing character, happy ending or attractive woman (attractive to me, which probably isn't Hollywood attractive) I wouldn't watch it... It would be too much to handle.
