    Why would you need to show empathetic resolve? We're talking about movies, aren't we?
    That's why I said, 'as an aside'.

    I was referring to instances outside the context of what the thread offered...

    Yes, dear. And anyway, when did I say "crying was the only answer"?

    (Sheesh, you say one positive thing about INTJs and the guys take that as an excuse to be a total <beep>).

    I thought it took strength to display sincerity in emotion?

    Go for it, LL...

    Besides, we discussed it back in the day!
    I re-watched it today, and loved it even more than before.

    It was excellently crafted; incredibly romantic, extremely beautiful.

    Most movies make me weep in despair for the future of humanity. Watching a vacuous summer blockbuster reminds me that most people are crass, shallow and, frankly, stupid.

    I know exactly what you mean.

    I'm a bit skeptical about you being an INTJ now, though. For one thing, you've implied that you care about the future of humanity. I think INTJs want an efficient future, and things being better for people is just kind of a side effect.

    Also, you're bothered by crass behavior and shallowness. I think an INTJ would normally be oblivious to those things, because that's something of a moral judgment.

    If you really are an INTJ (which you probably are)... quit spending so much time with INFPs, and try to focus on improving your projects again. Your conscience and sense of taste are working overtime, and it's killing you.

    Personal taste and value-judgments are two of the many things which escape the grasp of the MBTI, which predicts precious little and is routinely undermined in the rare case that it does make a testable claim.

    My INTJ grandfather had a collection of overly-sentimental movies. My ISFP friends (who are supposed to love good food and wine) drink Arbor Mist and eat at Applebee's. I, on the other hand, subscribe to Bon Appetit, Cigar Aficionado, and Wine Spectator. I have a good collection of cigars and wines, and my amuse bouches are the stuff of legend. The MBTI doesn't, in my experience, manage to be an infallible (or even halfway decent) predictor of aesthetic or moral judgements.

    I only cry during animal rescue shows.

    IME, INTJs just need time to 'warm up', sort of speak. Just spend time with her (movies are good ) and don't push. Banter sessions are fun, but make sure there are some serious silent pauses where you just quietly enjoy each others company. It gives them time to let it sink in and digest stuff (the emotions they are experiencing when near you etc). They take their sweet time but once they make up their mind, as with anything else, they're pretty efficient about letting you know
