    Speaking personally, I observe my perceptions of a person when I meet them the first time. I pay close attention to my iNtuition - it is seldom incorrect. My biggest problems in life have been when I have not paid attention to an 'inexplicably bad feeling' about somebody that I couldn't have explained. The other aspect is do we "speak the same language" - ie communicate well, have similar interests and approach to life. Of my small group of friends most are INTJ males, and one female.

    I think we have feelings (gee, that is a real NT thing to say...) I do get passionate about things/issues/people. Geekishly so about issues/things. But when it comes to people I know I don't do the outward expression until I know them quite well. Yep, I've been called aloof, snobby or cold. But folks who take the time to get to know me know there is something much warmer under the surface. And those who know me well see my feelings in the subtle things like fleeting facial expressions/body language. NF/SF folks I know tend to wear their hearts on their sleeves and have their brains on "loud speaker".

    Discuss.
    When I was young, I didn't CARE if I made people feel rejected!
    Life is so much less work that way! ;-)

    Notice that I have not talked about myself. I have made general statements about NT's.

    I also have lots and lots of feelings - for the people I have feelings for.

    I tend to neither like or dislike 90% of people I meet. Of course I feel things, but the positive and negative traits tend to mix and I get an overall impression of "I can't really say if I like this person or not". It's like I automatically treat others in a formal, business-like, manner. Note that this doesn't mean I won't feel bad if something happens to somebody else, I'm not heartless - on the contrary, I tend to defend people unfairly treated and stick my neck out for them as a matter of principle.

    Yeah, it seems like ENTJs are remarkably more capable of saying what they are thinking.

    For myself, my only NT dating experience was a switch flipping at one point where all of a sudden it was like this intense, deep seated and persistent feeling; not on the sleeve, but so very there. I can understand a shock flood when a dam breaks, but persistent intensity I couldn't find myself worthy. Yeah, I chickened out...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
