    I'm an INTJ woman and do experience severe (physical) PMS symptoms. Depending on the severity (sometimes I have cramps so painful I physically can't get out of bed), my approach to physical pain is generally to internalize it and outwardly just act like it's not happening - I'll never forget having to attend a job interview while experiencing severe menstrual cramps a while back!

    Typically I do not become more emotional in the "suddenly-INFJ" or "cry at everything I see" sense, but I am sometimes inclined to be more irritable or have a shorter tunnel between thinking and speaking.

    However, I'm also quite self-aware about it and have been tracking my cycle for years so that I can predict when my PMS symptoms are going to appear and adjust my behavior accordingly. I find that if I know that I'm in that week or so, I'm less tempted to act on my hormonal urges.

    (I also find that my sex drive goes through the roof right around my period, but I think this is a pretty common occurrence - certainly my partner doesn't mind!)

    LOL CAPS. PMS? I get mean/cranky, then cry when everyone avoids me. Just as I'm about to reach hysteria, I remember that it is the time of the month and I am not crazy. I usually get my period the day after my monthly realization.

    Hey I'm INTX does that count? I normally just experience mood swings on my period, usually from angry to completely detached. Is detatched an emotion? Whatever. But yes I get more emotional than usual on my period.
