    Default Analytic feelers?

    Do you, as an intuitive feeler, consider yourself analytical? If you do, how do you think that trait manifests itself in you?

    The context that made me come up with this question is web dating. I an INTJ man looking for a woman, and I'd be surprised if I found myself having ended up dating a thinker. I'd like to express in my profile that I value analyticality, but I can't help wondering if there are several ways of interpreting what it means.

    I am quite analytical. I am a chemist so I have to be.

    Yes, I do. It's probably evident in my caution/carefulness and effort to consider all viewpoints and information in a given situation.

    Also, awesome username there, gandalf XD

    If you're fishing for the golden ENFP, I've met a few of them ladies. While I wouldn't say that ENFPs have a tendency to be analytical, I have definitely seen a tendency towards surprising pragmatism. Maybe that will suffice?

    Does it have to be an intuitive feeler?

    I'm can be extremely analytical, but mainly of myself. I'm an ongoing experiment to existing and it's revealing some very useful data.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    My ENFP bestie is so damn analytical that I thought she was an ENTP for a long while.

    These days, anyone who's not analytical is dead meat. Technological economies require all people to think analytically.

    I suppose it depends on what you mean by analytical. Being in tech, some people might call me analytical, but I wouldn't. I am exploratory with the goal to learn enough to make something happen. People who I consider analytical are a hell of a lot more thorough than me when gathering information, they'll implement and test in a variety of situations, gather stats, graph them. Then they'll compile all of it and share it as an accomplishment in itself. I'll do some of this sort of thing, but only enough to get a rough enough understanding to just start doing something already.

    In my experience, NFs manifest their rational side in their ability to set emotion aside and view a given situation objectively. Make no mistake though, our "objective" is usually much less detached, sharp and precise than an NT "objective"... I, personally, value and enjoy being exposed to a thinker's perspective on things as it brings greater clarity and focus to the table.

    I guess a good way to word your preference would be that you appreciate both compassion and objectivity in a woman.

    It sounds like more than seeking someone analytical per se, you're just looking for someone who can understand (and hopefully accept!) you as you are. I've had the pleasure of knowing some brilliant NFs. One of the reasons that I value them so deeply is that they don't think like I do. Their contrasting perspective helps to fill in the blindspots in my reasoning, and help to introduce me to radically new ways of looking at the world.
