Emotional stability is independent of type.

I've never gotten dramatic even amongst family although I've met a few ESIs and ILIs who went off the charts. It's only in safe, unstressed, familiar territory that our true natures can be observed; however, when observers are introduced, it is likely no longer familiar space so are observations valid. Also, much of what we observe is comprised of behaviour resulting from accumulated baggage that's not type related.....
EDIT: Not only is externally-referenced functioning more observable, it's often brought to the fore by Ips and Ijs when in unfamiliar situations.
