    I don't understand the question. Try to resist feeling excited about seeing a movie? Why would I do that? Either I'm excited or I'm not. If they successfully get me excited about something I'm not, then everybody wins.

    On a typical day, I am pretty sure that everyone thinks that I am a Carebear on crack. People often tell me that they like being around me because I am always excited, etc. I do tend to say "yay!" a lot while clapping my hands and making weird faces; oh em gee, I pretty much act like this girl

    Hmm, I probably appear like an ENFP to people or maybe I am... Dun dun dunn

    If I didn't wanna go, this would piss me off. Seriously. I hate when people try to "assign" any type of feeling on me. Unless they gave any better reason for me to watch this movie, I'd tell them to fuck off. I seriously hate when people try to make me feel things I don't. I don't think there would be anything to resist/repress. If I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go, simple. I usually don't get motivated by other peoples feelings. Or my own for that matter, not if there are reasons not to.

    If I want to go, I don't need hyping up.

    I don't go out of my way to make other people like me/want me.

    Am I stereotyping Ti/Te users as being overly stoic and non-emotional?
    Yes, I think so. There are emotions. But a lot of the times, I'm just not aware of, or certain what I'm feeling. And usually, I don't care or pay attention to them, until they're pissing in my face.

    Oh, and I don't think I'm able to repress my emotions for long. However, I usually don't share them with others. Especially if they are personal, then I might not even share joy. The stronger the emotion, the more introverted they get. Typically, these emotions lack logic.

    I don't understand the movie example and how that ties into emotional repression. Because someone failed to hype me up for a movie, it wouldn't mean I was hiding my emotions or something. It just meant I still didn't want to see it, for whatever reason.

    WTF? Why do people assume that NTs don't have emotions? Having a preference for Thinking over Feeling has nothing to do with whether or not you have emotions. It's more about how you make your decisions.

    To answer the OP,No I don't repress my emotions. I just using my thinking functions first before I act on them.

    I'm emotional as fuck, I don't repress shit.

    I tend to be rational in the process of how I fulfil my needs and desires, but its all feeling driving the thing. Though I practise mindfulness and smoke a lot of weed, so I tend to be more laid-back and serene than bubbly.

    Even then, my emotions overwhelms my reason at points, and then I just act on instinct.

    Grrr...I would not like this. It would simply piss me off and my friends would be right back at square one. I'm not going because I don't want to go AND the fact that you pushed me makes me want to slap your face right off your face <always sunny in Philly quote>. It has nothing to do with emotional repression.

    Am I stereotyping Ti/Te users as being overly stoic and non-emotional?

    Yes. We aren't non-emotional. We just think before we act.

    Yes.

    For me feeling tends to be more than just little or nearly none at all. I think its because small emotions that might effect infp for example get rationalized by Ti. When the feeling is strong it passes Ti block and when that happens the feeling comes extra strong, since im not used to handling feelings that i coincider irrational by others(Ti analyzed). And since im not so used on handling feelings, i pretty much suck at showing them, even if they were strong. This gives expression to others that i dont feel at all or only feel in really extreme situations when the feeling is so horrible that i cant help not to show it.

    Fi for me is like Ti to infp(atleast to ones i know). I think about atleast small things pretty much all the time, they feel atleast small things about all the time. When they use Ti, it takes much more effort, drains your energy much more and wont happen so easy(reguires something bigger so that its worth using the energy for it) and so automaticly as for me. Same thing on Fi to me. Naturally infp can train Ti and intp can train Fi, but training helps on the efficiency of the function and it takes less energy after trained, it doesent effect the frequency of usage so much, but since it takes less energy you wont avoid it as much when its needed.

    I don't think NT's need to evoke emotions per sey, but they do need to actively think about non task based stuff.

    For instance when I first started working in my industry I'd get my seniors to proof certain documents... they would soften the beginings so instead of me asking for XYZ I'd open with a Hi how are you, how was the weekend... Just a social nicety.. NT's I think need to be prompted to soften their goal reaching desires....

    In love life etc, I don't need any prompting to be emotional, I'm a pretty full on emotional person, I just don't make decisions based on emotions alone....
