    It might be because they generally don't show their emotions so much, or are not so fluent in communicating via emotions, you are more likely to see the emotions that they can't control, i.e. negative ones.

    Well obviously Ts are capable of feeling and expressing emotions. I don't know any Ts, however, that I would even think of calling emotional in the colloquial sense.

    I'll have to challenge this observation. Anger can be controlled but has its uses.

    I don't know quite what you are confused about here, but they said that we sometimes put our families way ahead of everything else and I said that I did not, but then I realised that while I do not place an enormous amount of importance on my family, I do on my friends.

    I think I'm very emotional at times and have even considered the possibility of being an INFJ on several occasions. But all the pieces fit for me as a INTJ therefore I've stopped questioning that. What the problem is for me is that I can never express how I feel to anybody. The only times I've actually opened up and basically screamed out what the problem was, I was on some kind of drug.

    This is also the my main explanation on why I seek emotional music and art. Because they show me something I couldn't express in a thousand years on my own.

    Sure, it depends on the person. Every person will find it more difficult to hide certain emotions than others, including positive ones, like happiness. Some people don't like to show when they are happy but then suddenly something makes them happy and they can't help showing it and feel embarrassed. Same goes for anger for another person, etc.

    I can relate to this. I like very much very emotionally direct art. I don't enjoy abstractions so much unless I feel I have connected to a heart within it.

    I agree, emotions arent functions but people will be challenged or helped by them depending upon what their dominant cognitive functions are. Emoting is confused with emotional depth quite a bit in our feelerish culture too
