    Doesn't make me uncomfortable in the least, though. (It helps that my mother's side of the family is very huggy and generally expressive.)

    Yeah I think that's a big thing with NT's, affection is usually a manual task rather than an automatic one, it requires us to consider the propriety of the situation a lot more than the more spontaneous types :3 Yeah I think that's what helped me too! My mother's side is one of the most affectionate groups of people I've ever met! Good to know that there's another one out there
    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion man.

Love language, it's probably quality time but I like touch, words of affirmation, gifts and acts of service too. I'm not cold or robotic, not in general and not to the people closest to me. Maybe you aren't an INTJ but maybe you are and you're just developing your other functions.
    Yeah that is a good point, I don't really care very much either to be honest with you, not many people in my real life have any idea about the MBTI, and the ones that do don't seem to really care about it, so it's unlikely that it'd affect much either way. I guess I don't agree with the stereotype in general, because I see so many Reddit or Tumblr posts detailing how INTJ's are robots, and that females and males alike find it hard to date us... But yeah, good points, I'll have to get myself re-assessed.

Not to mention that quite often those of us that are exceptions to most profiles and are more affectionate tend to hide it from most people.
    Yeah that is true, I guess they try to state things that are true for MOST INTJ's, or INTP's, but I do tend to hide it because a lot of people just think I am that way regardless, which makes it hard... I well, not that big of a problem I don't think, the people I am close that probably wouldn't care either way.

    Depends on factors of subtype, I'd say; if the Enneagram is being cross-referenced Fives will definitely express differently from Ones.

    As far as physical affection, I want to give/receive it but I'm pretty reticent — which has resulted in my being out of practice on things as simple as sensual hugs. Fortunately, the ISTP I took on a date Sunday granted my request for a mulligan.

The worst is when I have to comfort someone, it just doesn't happen, and recently I've been in more situations where I've had to comfort someone (idk I feel like it's death season, within the last five months three of my close friends lost a family member :/ and I was around every time they found out), luckily there were always people better at handling comforting than me so I didn't have to really do anything, but I felt really awkward not knowing how to simply comfort a person
    First look them deep in the eyes so that it shows you care and then give them a big hug

I love affection, it dominates my Love Languages test scores every time, seconded by Words of Affirmation. Do any other NT's feel like they are unfairly stereotyped as being robotic and cold in terms of physical affection? Because I sure do...
    It's highest for me as well - or neck and neck with words anyway.

    Easier said than done for me. I find something like that really awkward (I usually end up saying useless things and patting on the back), but thanks for the advice, I'll attempt this next time :p

    It isn't easy at all.. The first time I did something like that, I had a legitimate panic attack XD But it's worth it

    I didnt say its easy :P However if you find someone who you can be more free in this regard easier, you might be able to do it and then notice that its not that bad after all. Now be a good little intp and realize that its just some irrational fear and nothing real to be afraid of
