    Default How do NT women differ from NT men?

    Aside from feeling alienated from the cultural stereotype of women, what, generally, do NT women do differently? (i.e. Are they more emotional, better at relationships, less agressive? Do they desire more to get married and have kids than their male counterparts? etc) This is something I've been interested in, but alas, I am the only NT female I know of IRL, and my view of myself is ultimately biased.

    We are awesome!

    NT women learn to fake some F to survive in society and that helps us develop that function better (fake it till you make it). I think NT women are more balanced between their N and T function. NT men suppress their N more than NT women do, it's more acceptable for women to be intuitive or random, so the NT men end up relying on their T function making them more one dimensional.

    The balance probably makes NT women better at relationships, unfortunately not many men want a relationship with an NT women, so getting into one is certainly not easier.

    exactly what I was going to say and in the exact same context too

    jokes aside, NT women do bring about balance and they are more balanced too.
    The answer must be in the attempt

    I don't agree. I know 4 or 5 NT men (for sure) IRL and all of them have better developed Fe than I do.

    INTP men in particular are really quite fluffy, when it comes down to it.

    I only know 1 NT woman, IRL - me. And I skew the sample, so it's hard to make judgments.

    I generally agree with this, it's probably one of the factors. I do find NTJ women a lot harder (they seem to have far stronger opinions openly and aren't deterred by conflict) than NTP women, who come across as softer because they flex... which might make them seem more "female" in style, even if they aren't F inside.

    Yeah, we're not foo-foo enough. Probably do not give enough strokes to the male ego, especially if undeserved; and being autonomous means we don't "create a space" for guys in the same way some women seem to play into.

    Although I love letting 'em carry stuff for me.

    The INTP men I've known weren't very fluffy, I'd describe them as emotionally stunted, lucky you. I usually only find Fe in ExFJ guys.

    I skew the sample the other way.

    Yeah.
    I'd say the difference is that the men don't get half as much flack for their NTness. On the contrary.

    LOL. But are they the right ones? Do you want the spineless twits NT women too often have a knack for attracting? Those and the SJ-fascist types.

    That's because you shackled their ankles together!

    INTP guys seem to be either fluffy (Ne focus) OR stiff (Ti focus).
