    Default SLEs/ESTps and awareness of what they are feeling

    Are SLEs aware of what they're feeling? Or are emotions a side-note to the action? Do they even think about it, or not really? Maybe they know but they choose not to base decisions on it?

    I think all logical types are less aware of what they're actually feeling, but are still quite aware that they are feeling. Although, for ITps, its a different story when it comes to assessing self-feelings. The ESTp probably can feel much more natural assessing self-feelings, despite not being so good at it.

    Really? That's interesting. so you mean they just have a hard time articulating it? Or no desire to do so?

    Hard time articulating and no desire would be of the ITps. I think ESTps probably have the desire, when it comes to self-feelings, and although they want to, they still are confused about their conclusions in it, the ethical-emotional realm being a weakness. I could say they can be overconfident in what they think about how they're feeling, but then the whole logic of it doesn't add up after a while to them, so that's where the confusion comes from.

    I feel what I feel, but I generally don't bother trying to apply a name to it (with the exception of anger).

    I doubt it. My SLE father always had conflicts (mild though) with my EIE sister in this regard. Imo she's much too focused on what people might feel while he doesn't give a shit. Neither about others', nor about his. So often it appeared as if he was rejecting way too obvious stuff --- I mean stuff almost anyone feels after losing someone close etc. If she mentions something related to his internal state, he gets kind of pissed and brushes it off. Or starts diverting and projecting, talking about others. I sometimes think that despite being Fe inferior LSIs are more aware of this kinda BS because they're more introspective. Not sure though, since even when they concentrate on themselves the subject of analysis is not exactly that.

    I don't know if this happens with other SLEs, but my boyfriend seems to not distinguish between his physical and emotional feelings - like if he's been cooped up inside working for too long and is getting cabin fever, he thinks he's coming down with flu (which mysteriously resolves itself after a walk). I think many other types do this too though, including IEIs.

    The way he expresses love also changes according to his physical state, e.g. when he's been indoors for too long or if he's sick, it's all epic and slightly mournful declarations of undying love and soulmate-ship, but when he's happy and active it's much simpler "I love you"s and compliments. The predictability is really quite adorable.
