    If I want someone to know my intentions, I will tell them plainly. Otherwise, I will keep them to myself, and any assumptions based upon body language, etc. have a good chance of being wrong.

    Yupp, and that's what I don't like. It makes me anxious not knowing what your intentions might be. I don't make solid judgements on what your intentions could be, I just make several possibilities, and I keep my thoughts to myself.

    That's what confused me and made me uncertain; I couldn't tell exactly how his eyebrows were slanted. It was an older man with thick, heavy eyebrows. The angle of the photo made it difficult to tell as well.

    I was talking to a friend just the other day who is ISTP and is very non-specific. His favorite word is "dunno". Were I talking to him face to face, I would know exactly which he was leaning toward when he says that... but I have no idea when he says it with only the written word. He also likes to use "yes" and "no" when there are multiple questions asked, or if there are rhetorical questions added before he's responded... I know that he has a habit of answering rhetorical questions so I have to guess which one he has actually answered. It's kind of awkward when you have to tell them you don't know what they are saying "yes" or "no" about.
    I'm probably more sensitive to non-verbal cues vs. words, too, especially facial expressions and eyes.

    I have found that the best INFJ-ISTP communication takes place in person, because we read each others' non-verbal cues so well. Having that type of communication going on in addition to talking can be pretty amazing and makes for very intense attachments that can happen quickly, with the INFJ and ISTP then stepping back in shock going, "whoaaa....how did that develop so fast?!"

    Any particular experiences?

    Which type is most sensitive to them?
    I am very much perceptive on body language and nonverbal cues.
    I guess INTx's would be least sensitive to this, but I might be wrong on this...
