    Default Emotional T's?

    Are these common? I'm very logical and practical and all that. I choose to act based on what makes sense rather than how I feel and I prefer to be objective. But I still have quite a lot of emotional depth and am easily capable of strong emotions, both positive and negative.

    Yes.

    Especially TJs. Their Fi can make them very moody creatures. They probably don't realize that they're being emotionally affected in situations either. So they are unable to check it when it happens.

    Sure, they can be. Emotions aren't functions, but how you respond to those emotions is effected by functions. TPs, with low grade Fe, can sometimes seem excessive emotional, or even out of control. The Fi in TJs is less visible, but it is still there.
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    T's are human but we prefer rationale for decision-making. I use rationale instead of objective logic, since truth is subjective relativity.

    Exactly, we are not robots as thinkers it just mean that our focus on how we deal with things in the end will more likely be from a impersonal view as opposed to feelers that take an personalized view. That dont mean we are not influenced by emotions, even when its from an impersonal perspective.

    my INTP brother and dad can get quite emotional, though sometimes they don't realize the extent to which they put that emotion into the environment. i find it curious that they emote negative emotions more than positive, as i do not believe they themselves experience vastly more negative emotions than positive.

    and like slowriot voiced, they are similar in that their emotions seem to not change their personal decisions as much as it does for feelers, especially Fi, because we tend to associate emotion and value (note - "emotion" being way more complex than "rawr angry" and "wahh sad". lol )

    Yes, same here. T's don't feel any more or less than F's. The T/F preference centers around how you like to make decisions. Do you prefer to decide on logical, objective criteria (T) or decide based on feelings and values? (F).

    That's the best way to put it. Because there are a lot of Ts who will put their family first, for example, over anything and everything else.

    Not me. But I'm more that way with my friends I suppose.
