    i think sfs are equally as "caring" as nfs.

    I believe you may be describing Ni/Fi (or Fi/Ni) ...it reminds me of how I read into when my grandfather was sad...and how I can read certain other people I'm very close to, even when their mouth says "blah blah blah" ...I know.

    I think an INTJ would do this with Ni/Fi but have more analytical detachment because Ni comes before his Fi, and also because of a Te shield in front of his Fi.

    However, a highly empathetic Fe type could do the same, pick up on people's feelings around them, and take in other people's feelings.

    I still think what your INTJ friend said makes total sense to me, which is why I think he specifically is using Ni/Fi...where as I would have Fi/Ni.

    It would manifest itself differently, though. I think your INTJ friend must be quite mature and have developed Fi.

    I have said something similar (though less corny) to my cousin once when asked why I was 'suddenly' interested in people. I think people are not really hard to understand. Their problems are simple in essence; they are, however, wrapped in many layers of failed solutions. The peeling is what I find fascinating.

    I think I am quite good at making sense of what people tell me about themselves. I do need them to tell me something, though. For instance, I have a friend who had a depressive episode a few years ago. I did not notice it at all, but when told about it, I could easily see why and how it happened and could be fixed. That is probably not 'emotional awareness'. Yet I have been told that I am easy to talk to, a good listener and that my advice is precious. Just a few weeks ago I diagnosed a paranoid personality disorder in someone I hardly knew but who opened up to me (basically told me the story of his life, involving sadistic parental abuse) simply because I am such a nice fellow.

    There you go, stupid stereotype.

    Yes and I don't want it. I can be quite understanding when I want to be and if I don't read too much into things. It can be very tiresome to try to see it from their perspective.

    I am about as emotionally aware of other people as an ant colony is aware of a 10 lane super-highway.
