    Entering the "Feeling Zone" ... Complete control over emotional state of mind.

    They talk about being "in the zone" a lot when it comes to athletes - which to me is basically the ability to focus all energy towards maximizing the human potential in terms of achieving physical greatness.

    I wanna know if this is an experience "feelers" can relate to when it comes to experiencing certain feelings at a given point.

    Like --- if I want, I can put myself in a "feeling zone" at will. If I want to feel something, I just think about it and start really feeling it.

    I usually do this when I'm feeling extremely creative; mostly with music and poetry. If I want to write something dark and melancholic, then I can literally replicate feelings of darkness, depression, sadness --- and then come out of those feelings just as easily and put myself in them.

    Can anyone relate :/ I posted this in the ENFJ forum and got no response, so I'm trying to get some from my INFJ friends. When I talk about this with people IRL, I usually get some pretty odd looks before I decide to shut up.

    Can this be related to cognitive functions or MBTI in any way?

    I do that when I'm in love. It strengthens my love, making me overwhelmed (in a very very very very very good way) with all the love I feel for the subject of interest. I sometimes use it to get my way, like I have a power over how the other person feels about me.
    One can get into another's stomach with all that energy.

    yay for focus powah!

    I get an "in the zone" feeling if I'm working on solving a problem. As if every available resource gets assigned to it and everything else blanks out giving me complete control of mental focus. Is this similar? :-) :-)

    Sounds familiar.

    Not sure if it relates to MTBI or cognitive functions but I understand where you're coming from. Specifically in the creative sense.

    I'm able to do this. Most people probably don't relate because they don't see a purpose in doing it so they don't try. If you are doing it for creative purposes then that makes sense.

    Yes. This is what I do everytime I write an emotional scene, and on a lesser scale when I roleplay my characters. When I'm daydreaming I'll do this too.

    MBTI? I'd guess it'd be a combination of N and F, though it might just be Ni. My mom will do this, where she'll pretend she's teaching an audience something (she's INTJ, with Fi as her feeling function). Her in the zones are not as strong as mine (her emotions aren't as pronounced), but she does "experience" whatever she's thinking about.

    Yes, although I dont have complete control over it. My control is much better then it used to be. I can cause myself to get moist eyes but can't do tears yet. Interestingly enough I have worked more on stopping feelings then starting them. Like if I have had a bad day or even a bad hour, turning on a dime and pushing it aside, finding a happy thought and changing my emotional state. This is essential in my job---just because something didnt work during my first class, I cannot make it affect the rest of my kids by killing my emotional state all day.
    I'm pretty tactile and usually walk with a ball in my hand or twirl rubber bands or rulers while I'm going through things in my head.

    Are there any techniques you used to gain better control over starting an emotional state or is it one of those "gut" things its hard to explain?

    I can relate and music puts me in the zone with whatever feeling I want to feel at that moment, which is a good thing when I want to write poetry and write fiction novels.

    I'm not really sure if it connects to mbti or the cognitive functions, sorry. But I think everyone could get into the zone if they find something that really connects to them. (Not sure if I'm making sense . . .)

    I relate, it was how I got through my last year of highschool. The ability to just shut out everything and focus entirely on what you need to do, whether it be learning a new maths concept, absorbing the brilliance of a well done piece of art, or savouring a feeling. I often do it when I experience a good feeling or something that's aesthetically beautiful (like a nice patch of nature), I focus on it so completely and get the most out of it, and it helps keep it stored away so I can recall and relive that moment at a later time. It's almost like you disappear and just lose yourself in it.

    At least I think that's what you meant?
