    At this point in my life it would just feel too awkward, too.... forced? My brother is an INTP and we just don't hug. If he did hug me it would because someone told us to hug and there again it would feel forced and awkward. My whole immediate family are not much into sharing feelings so I've just learned to accept it.

    I don't let many people hug me, but my ENFP best friend knows she always has permission.

    i like INTJs. we often get along well and see eye to eye on a lot of things. heavy Te can be a bore to me sometimes though.

    i love how they're usually a warm glowing center inside a cold exterior. it's endearing. good banter with INTJs usually. but sometimes they start going on about things that i don't care at all about. often we have VERY different sets of interests, and i've gotten the vibe from more than one INTJ that they think the thing they're interested in is objectively better than the thing i'm interested in.

    but they really are great listeners for the most part. great at keeping a cool head and giving practical advice when i'm losing my head over something.

    i'm for 'em.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    That's because we can't get a word in edgewise.

    Just kidding. Sort of. Sometimes I can't figure out why my extremely ENFP mother enjoys talking to me, because I don't actually get to say anything.

    They're A-OK. As Ns we can find interesting things to bounce off of each other, Ne and Ni complement each other nicely, expansion and contraction. I find that some expression of Se feel a bit shallow, liking the shiny things.

    From my experiences, their I always tend to feel like interacting with them is a type of unspoken negotiation on some level. It's the Te, they silently assert and I tend to be hyper-aware of such unseen forces, it can turn into a battle.

    My hobby is reading people's intentions, in my experience, they don't like that much.

    Oh shit, you wanted a hug? I didn't read that in your post. I didn't know that at all. How was I suppose to know??

    See what I'm saying? If you really needed a hug, you have to tell us. Or stand there like this....

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    My ENFP friends just do it to get the reaction, usually at the most inopportune times. Like when I'm making dinner...

    I understand that, I do, and my mom and I hug on occasion, however, because of that feeling of keeping things at arm's length (both physically and emotionally for basically all 30 years of my life) for me it feels awkward and I don't want it to feel forced. I guess that's on my part but I will say it's awesome when I need to bounce ideas around. My mom and I are always generating some interesting ideas.

    I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea that I'm emotionally scarred by INTJs, everyone has their flaws, even me, but they can be a delight when both Ne and Ni get together.
