    These people are ..
    I don't mind controlling, as long as it has a point and isn't for the sake of control. ie. I'll happily follow or agree with orders if I can see some value in them and no harm in them.

    I love flexibility, from schedules to physical.

    I never find real thinking draining or tedious, just the imitation that involves long words which say very little. On that topic, when will scientists write papers that have an average word length below 10 letters and average sentence length below 50 words? I can read them, but it would be so much easier to just communicate clearly and concisely. It would make the paper shorter too. Apparently no one seems to have figured this out though and they use the last woefully written piece of crap as a template for the next one. I think I hate my main reference in most projects I work on.

    Scared of people making sense? My biggest gripe is that they don't, though at the same time I love the diversity.

    I suspect this is similar for many people for various reasons. There is one drawback to relating to someone else's feelings - it can result in projection which can be less understanding than simply not relating. I can't relate to the way everyone experiences emotions, but I can observe it like I do physical illness. I don't know what it is like to have certain diseases, but through observation I can respect and understand it causes distress. It is almost always best to show support by simply asking the person what they need. Some people can figure it out without asking, but I'm not sure that is such an advantage. It's true that emotions can be more befuddling than physical illnesses, but there is a principle here that can apply to some degree and in some cases.

    I understand things by reason or physical mechanism. To understand an illness, it's best for me to understand the biochemistry, which in turn affects the physiology. I can compare the changes in physiology to other illnesses, hypothesize similar symptoms and from there make comparisons. I don't rely on reading between the lines - I ask and state directly. My observations, ultimately, come down to direct observation.

    It's not that I can't understand what a person's emotions are. I understand the difference between happiness, anger, sadness, apathy. I just simply feel unaffected.

    I'm not really afraid of any of them...
    I seek controlling.
    When confronted with flexibility, I tend to get prepared. The more P my environment, the more J I become.
    I get weary of emotions. I'm okay with them for some amount, but the amounts displayed eg. in a soap opera are way too high.
    I get never tired of thinking
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    Same. I see flexible situation coming and get all the info I'll need to be able to adapt and do well in it.
