    Default NFs with Asperger's = What?

    NF and Asperger's seem contradictory to me. I'd assume it's possible, but, then, it doesn't make much sense anymore? Mostly considering the aptitude and ineptitude for social awareness, cues etc.

    Any NF aspies around to comment, or people who know some? It sounds like the person would lose so much of what NF is based on if they could simultaneously represent some of that social oblivion that can come with Asperger's.

    What do you guys think?

    Quite possible because being NF does not mean one has good social awareness, necessarily.

    I've seen INFx's on this board openly say that they have it.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    I know what is meant from this, I think the stereotypical Asperger's type would be INTJ, the one I know is, I feel I can empathise due to having 3 of the 4 letters.

    Quite a few NFs - especially 5w4s - have Asperger's. They create complex mental worlds and seem less emotional than other NFs, but the traits, however externally underexpressed, are there.

    An INFP does not wear his heart on his sleeve, he wears it under his sleeve. Their emotions, which are really more like passions, burst out when their Fi values have been offended. But normally they keep them under wraps. If the INFP is creating a complex mental world, then even moreso, where there are no real outlets for Fi values or the INFP lacks confidence in bringing their values to fruition.

    yes i thinks also that it is very possible, aspies have communication mishaps with ppl, doesn't mean they don't feel, they just do in a different way, in a misplaced type of way. Their feelings are usually just isolated, not expressed in a social context.
