X-1: Flat Affect

And from this page:

The word “submerged” refers to the psychological state of being involuntarily weighed down by the bowels of the unconscious, whether through archetypes, symbols or dreams. It is a state in which the mind is battling against certain contents and the energies of the individual are driven to address this internal narrative. Carl Jung, during 1913-1916 entered one such state of submersion where he withdrew much of his energies from the world and became consumed by visions out of which eventually emerged the Red Book. Clinically, submersion may manifest as depression, anxiety, bipolar, aggression and emotional volatility and other mental conditions — yet these are often outward symptoms of a deeper spiritual dilemma.

No types are more acquainted with the depths of human nature; no types are more aware of the shadowy corners of our being than those who have gone through immersion and come out through the other side. From this place springs forth great creative force and artwork. But no types are also more afflicted with the curse of Being than these. Submersion is a dangerous game to play, and not all who plunge headlong into the abyss return again for breath.
