I often get told that I’m “unladylike” because I have a direct way of speaking and don’t always go out of my way to soothe people’s feelings. (Mind you, I’m usually polite and courteous.) Interestingly, it is mostly older women who give me this feedback.

(I say this because the few ENTP women I know all seem to really HATE ~FEELINGS~; I’m mostly just sort of confused by mine.) Something that really helped me a while back with understanding emotions was Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. One of the basic ideas in the book is that intuitions and emotions are as much insights (and there valid) as (analytical) thoughts and opinions, so the better way to deal with your emotions is not to treat them as the enemy but clues to something that your conscious and “rational” brain may be missed.
