Example: anger, rage, and feeling infuriated would fall under the same "branch" of feelings because they're all quite similar, but different intensities of that feeling. But anger, rage, and feeling infuriated are distinctly different from feeling delighted, happy, and ecstatic. See the distinction between the two branches?
Anyway, I dunno how, one way or another I want to dispel the bullshit modern psychology seems to have on INTJs and people with moderate Asperger's compared to the "normal" people, so ty for this convo! It kind of gives me encouragement/reason to keep working towards my goal of making "normal" people understand how truly "dumb" their actions are, and that they should really try to think more even if it causes them temporary mental fatigue :3.
Yeah, I was referring to feelings but trying to describe them for what they literally are observed to be (I HATE when people don't realize how vague and subjective "feelings" are. Especially when they use feelings as the reference point in an argument...oh well ;__;.
Ah, I'm glad you said that. So intrapersonal feelings are there. But interpersonal feelings aren't. Yet "normal" people refer to people with Asperger's/Moderate Asperger's as robots...ignorant fools powered by their blissfully ignorant minds.
When I mentioned distinctly different, I was trying to think of a way to differentiate "happy" from "sad" from "angry" from "frustrated" without using those terms (once again, trying to describe the observation and the mechanistic differentiation).
If you're referring to common 'feelings,' then yes, although I'm not sure if they work in the 'normal' sense; while I can identify with some of them - the intrapersonal ones, such as frustration, anger, etc.; others (interpersonal ones) are completely alien, such as grief or compassion, or 'friendship' if that is an emotion.
Whether they feel 'distinctly different' is arguable, though.
Oh! That makes sense now XD! Hmm, sometimes I think moderate Asperger's is actually just highly logical and rational people literally interpreting what non-logical and non-rational people describe, and being like, "I don't have that." Do you experience internal sensations that correspond with different actions/events/thoughts? If yes, are they hard to describe in words, but do distinctly feel different from the other internal sensations that are associated with different actions/events/thoughts? Additionally, if yes to the 1st question, does the magnitude/intensity/potency of internal sensations vary slightly, but some can be put into a class/category/grouping because they're produced by similar actions/events/thoughts?
