"I take emotion as affect; it is the same as something affects you. Emotion is the thing that carries you away. You are thrown out of yourself; you are beside yourself as if an explosion had moved you out of yourself and put you beside yourself" (Jung, CW 17, para. 46).
Jung distinguishes between emotion, as an involuntary, temporary, and chiefly unconscious behavior, and "feeling" ("F" on the MBTI) which he understands to be one of the two rational ordering functions, the other one being "thinking" ("T"). The feeling function is a value-based way of judging the perceptions brought to us either through sensation ("S") or intuition ("N").
