    Do you feel them concretely or abstractly?

    Oh, and here are some examples of emotions in case you don't know what they are:

    - Distressed sadness

    - Cheeky embarassment

    :blushing: - Ashamed embarassment

    - Extreme surprise

    - Mild surprise/puzzlement

    - Happy

    - Witty

    - Mildly sad

    Oh here is something to think about

    Why are "NT"s supposedly adverse to good emotions, but not negative ones?

    Ah, an excellent question. People likewise also assume NFs are averse to negative emotions and only value positive ones. Many would assume NTs are cynics and NFs are optimists.

    I think it's based on a misunderstanding of objectivity and rationality. Many people think that being critical, negative, and insensitive is more "honest" or "logical" than being upbeat, emphasizing the good, or being sensitive. I think this often gives NTs an undeserved bad name. It also makes people assume that NFs are somehow more naive or less capable of feeling negative emotions, because all the "evil" feelings get tossed over onto the thinking side (to the point that a person who isn't cheerful and dislikes poeple is often assumed to be T). Somehow, the common conception of thinking tosses a lot of negative, nasty, depressing stuff in there along with it, somehow construing it as more objective, which is an error.

    Agreed. Some of the NTs I have known have been the most openly warm people. The only difference being they don't pretend to be for the sake of conformity. When an NT is good emotional mood, it is generally well deserved and genuine. And equally as common as other types.

    EXTPs are emotionally retarded, seriously.
    They are at the bottom of our pecking order of reality.

    Regarding NT/NF pessimism/optimism, I know NFs that are doom-gloomers and others that are as happy as me. I also have one pessimistic NT of a brother but know a few reasonably optimistic NT friends.

    I don't know that emotional polarity is type-specific, but the degree to which emotions are considered in our active thoughts and subconscious scheming is from what I can tell.

    I'm practical, but not at all cold.

    ^^ Yeah but we're really good at faking it. Later on, we figure out how much we need other people, and then it just gets easier from there. Of course, others think it's weird how often we reassure people that we're glad to have them around at this point.
