    Take a Vitamin B-Complex supplement. That's been known to help with the moods associated with loneliness.

    INTJs - Do you suffer from a recurring sense of loneliness and emptiness?

    I do, and I don't know how to fix it.

    When I feel that way, I feel like it would be so great to have a quiet, private, deep
    conversation with someone, but I can never think of anyone who I could talk to.
    I have thought of journaling, but it leaves me feeling empty because I would like a response.
    I'm not sure if I'm having feelings I haven't identified or dealt with, or what's the matter.
    Frequently, I feel like I'm on the verge of tears all day long.
    I only know that I hate going around feeling that way.

    What do you do?
    I do not claim to be "intj", but I can definitely relate (except for the crying, and frequency part). I always find strength from within, from constructive thoughts. Change always begins there.
    Hit like a heavyweight, breathe deep, meditate
    Make the whole crowd get loud, make 'em levitate
    I ride through my city like a presidential candidate
    L-A-X, Phantom double-R, and accelerate

    I have never felt lonely, but when I reflect, I realize that I have no one with whom I can interact with on a deep level.

    I will need to start sifting through more people.

    As an INTJ who lives off the independent streak, once in awhile I have to feel the opposite for balance (I'm human) and it does hit me hard for a day or two. I just go out and be extroverted to balance it. However, on a mental companionship level, I've been lonely quiet a while and it does bug me at times. Having someone who will listen and care about your ideas, and share her own...yeah be nice but not the best luck in the direct area I live.

    Apart from my partner, this describes me pretty accurately. There are a few people I've met online who I've clicked with. In some ways, that's made RL a bit lonelier.

    I do that. All the time. I have this irrational belief from the past that I should be able to deal with everything by myself and that I don't need help. The more stressed I am, the more I do this. (I'm most probably INTP, not INTJ, but this habit of mine is more to do with my past than my type IMO)

    That rings true for me. I feel loneliness when I feel disconnected from people which is where clicking with people online can make it worse. Usually when it hits it's feels completely irrational, it just is, usually goes pretty quickly for me though.

    Right.
    I know how you feel.

    I'm not feeling so bad as I was a couple of days ago.
    My hormones were pushing me around, too.

    And now that I think of it, I could call her.
    We've talked before and she's great.
    Yeah...we formed our own group. Started with one close friend (ESFJ and believe me, she started our friendship--spotted me on the bus when we were both about 7 months pregnant). Then we each invited one more person we thought would be good. Well actually, my first invite was to an INTJ who couldn't fit it in. I couldn't think of anyone else and we went with just 3 of us until the ESFJ got a new neighbor. So maybe finding a compatible Fe friend is the ticket. She "drags" me all over.

    Those are a bitch.

    Yes.

    I just stick it out when it happens, knowing it will go away in a day or so.

    I've come to the point where I don't expect people to really connect with me, but I wonder whether that isn't just an easy way to evade true communication and opening up and all that fun stuff. Internet does fill part of the "void".
