    I don't think most INTJs are asexual...

    But I do think a lot of INTJs are 'late bloomers', regardless of when puberty happens. And they never get as crazy about it as most of the general populace.

    Asexual? No. I think intj's have the same emotional response as everyone else. It's just that they don't allow it to dominate their decisions and actions.

    I think INTJs are more likely to be romantically disillusioned, and are gifted at ignoring that aspect of themselves for long periods of time.

    Agreed.

    I personally don't get as excited in that area unless someone knows how to stimulate my mind. I also don't allow my impulses to control me. So, I do come across more subdued than others.

    INTJs are not non-sexual...they are reserved in their decision. Sex is a complicated situation and one we are extremely aware of. No one can talk themselves out of getting laid like an INTJ...we are the undisputed masters. Is it worth all the static it will bring? I find myself thinking about mutual friends, gossip, the after effects if I find it not working. Many times I decide against out of respect for the person involved...worried I might hurt them unintentionally. We are complex....and it takes a while to make sure it is the right choice. I had a girl booty call me..against my better judgment I took her up on it. I knew there was no future.... a mindless fling that she instigated. Now, she and her circle blacklisted me. I was minding my own business.....Nothing is free.

    I think that's a bit of a misunderstanding. Not from your INTJ; I have no reason to believe he's not telling the complete truth. But in this INTJ's experience, we're as sexual as the next person. Sometimes I'm just a walking raw nerve ending, to be honest. But we construct more obstacles between ourselves and sex than many other types. If you want to find a logical reason to have sex, you're going to come up wanting. It's a passionate, alogical decision, and it requires you to sublimate your intellect in favor of your instinct. That's often not easy to do for an INTJ. But it doesn't mean we don't want it as much, trust me. We just make ourselves jump through more hoops to get to it.

    Just to embellish....I have the ability (to a certain degree) to predict how the chips are going to fall. I would rather have sex with a stranger...who I have a good, immediate attraction/rapport with. I dont like the idea of strings and its a lot more primitive. Separating church and state. Less thinking about the future........long range relationships are an entirely different animal. INTJs need 4 feet of space on all sides...they invite you closer when comfortable.
