And I realize I may be onto something. It's said that intps develop one of their feeling preferences further as life goes on, and yet I have been toldore than once (mostly by my mother) that I seem to be getting less empathetic as I get older. I also notice that it seems that I'm becoming more sociable, ie i'm getting better at conducting my interaction with others, and I find this greatly satisfying, yet I still don't see the need to be amicable or empathetic so much as sociable. Funny thing, but I don't think I ever really made a distinction betweenthe two before.
This may have to do with some combination of my having nonverbal learning disability and ADD, but as this has once again raised doubt as to my mbti type, I figure with the varied perspectives on theory in here, I'd see if you (collectively) would attempt to shed some light on this.
