    I don't understand why it's so difficult to entertain that if there exists bisexuality and high sexuality, that there wouldn't be an opposite that is interested in neither with low sexuality.

    Granted it can be difficult to find the difference between a repressed individual and one that is asexual. But snobbery as a reason? Is it really reasonable to believe that they would abstain that long for just that reason, and why define themselves as asexual rather than celibate?

    Not to mention that there are individuals in married albiet sometimes unhappy relationships with perfectly fine systems. We wouldn't chasitise someone for not being romantically oriented so why this?

    Maybe it's just really hard to believe that a person could not have this powerful drive that causes the rest of us great delight, anguish, frustration, etc.

    I do think there is a big difference between considering one's self "above" something and being indifferent to it. Often, indifference is perceived as arrogance.

    (Sorry to be thick... Just trying to understand.)
    Yeah pretty much

    At the very least humans require a basic love and affection from others

    Thanks for pointing out my problem with specificity there...

    If anyone comes across this message and is also in the "maybe/not sure" category, feel free to speak up.

    I've met INTPs who would claim this, but it wasn't really so once you talked to them a bit more. In all instances, it seems they had some childhood trauma.

    All the INTJs I have known were not close to asexual. I don't know about INFPs. We need/want as much closeness as we can get, I think . I think it may mostly be an INxx thing if you want to connect it to type, although that is dubious.

    I am not asexual at all, for the record, haha.
    I want no closeness! Get awayyyy from meee, I say!

    I don't think I am asexual... When I think of asexuality, I think it equals no sexual desire. I experience sexual desire a lot, it just dissipates when I start talking the person I am lusting after.

    Asexuals do have basic love and affection from others...
    They just don't lust after others.

    +1.

    Not asexual by any stretch of the imagination. I probably come across as being so though.

    Love/affection = sexual attraction?

    I get lots of affection and love from my siblings, but I don't really plan to have sex with them.
