    The wish to be seen as superman/woman is more evident than their being superman/woman. It can be cute sometimes. This, along with the striving after titles and power, however silly and from wherever granted, is one thing that helps some of us decide we're not intjs.

    In any event, the outbursts and post-wars evident in numerous intjs' posts here when they're involved in discussions should have dispelled any illusion about relative lack of sensitivity.

    no, FJs as a whole are probably the most sensitive types

    This conversation could use a distinction between sensitive and reactive.

    Also: It is true that Ps are more affected by what they consider to be their internal state than Js are by what they consider to be their internal state. But whether any type is literally more affected by emotions than any other should be judged from a biological (brain-based) framework instead of inherently biased first-person narratives.

    What makes you so sure to think that a brain-based framework wouldnt be inherently biased ? I mean you cant run 60 Ampere thru a 6 mil copper wire ?!

    This would make sense, because of introverted movement of libido on J function with P types. But doesent explain everything and i think that they are sensitive in bit different ways, also T F has an huge effect to this.

    A brain-based framework is testable with brain imaging techniques at least. Of course there's bias in any framework by definition, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to minimize it.

    I'm a J, but very oversensitive and very swayed by my emotions. As I have gotten older, I have gotten better and better and being able to make a more objective decision, but the emotions still play a big role.

    So you mean: if you'ld take a picture of the brain, you'ld know how its framework operates ?
