    Yeah, it's hard to say sometimes. ITPs aren't devoid of emotions though. Or incapable of being close to their moms.

    I don't even want to talk about it though. A part of me wants to give my own perspective, but it's not a good idea. I'd probably say more if we weren't on the net. I'd prefer saying things where I can see people. Just in case they troll or "retype" me INFP for talking about emotions, I could knock the shit out of them. Unfortunately, it's impossible here.

    Anyways, just settle on STP for him.

    lmao.. that kind of sounded directed at you, marm. didn't mean it that way. i just meant that people around here like to retype. sometimes i don't even know who they are.

    what i've learned is that forums aren't a good place to talk about these things.

The other stuff may very well be an SP type of Ni (rather than dominant), but I'm not sure.
    Hilarious.

    This reminds me of this thread I made.

    My SO is an ISTP with very well developed Ni and Fe. (Of course he's in his early 40s and has had a lot of practice using these functions.) I wouldn't say that he ever acts like an INFJ. But I would say that he has come to strongly demonstrate his Ni which is one of the reasons I love him. (I love me some yummy Ni.)

    I like to say that there is a big difference between a right-handed person and a left-handed person who has learned to write right-handedly. Well the same goes for cognitive functions. My ISTP's Ni is fabulous, but he will never ever exhibit the dominant Ni that we see in INFJs.

    That being said, I think that ISTPs and INFJs do have a lot in common. The MBTI letters might be very different, but take a look at the JCF's for these two types.

    INFJ = Ni>Fe>Ti>Se
    ISTP= Ti>Se>Ni>Fe

    You'll notice that these two types have the same top four cognitive functions, just in a different order. I think INFJs and ISTPs make great friends. Evidence to support this is that my ISTPs lifelong best friend is an INFJ.

    Kinda the same as cross-dominant handedness not being precisely the same as ambidextrous.

    I can see this, though I don't have any INFJ friends. I do typically respect/admire any INFJ I come across. With one exception... one of my best friends in college started dating an INFJ much younger than him. She was in a super intellectually snobby phase in her life, and I found her pretty annoying at first-- she even went so far as to try to parent me when I got tipsy one night and a little silly (I started wrestling with one of our guy friends). One of the easiest ways to make an SP dislike you is to try to parent them when you don't really know them . He actually got married to her last year, but by that point, she had grown up and matured a lot. I came to really respect and like her... even though I think she still may see me as silly and childish.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    Didn't know that. For me, it was an accident. The guy who taught me showed me a couple of chords and sold me a crappy guitar. And I just struggled with playing it as it was given (right handed). By the time I knew better, it was too late.

    The older I get the more I relate to INFJ and INFP. Its strange. I dated an INFJ but we were in different places in our lives at the time. Ended up fizzling out and he ended up with my ENFP co-worker for a year. They broke up, and just last week we ended up in the same bar (mutual friends).
    Funny, we still have the same easy way about ourselves and chemistry. He came home with me. It may not have been a deep passion of his ENFP relationship, but we have our own undrstanding. It doesnt need words. Its real comfortable. I know I can be myself with him without judgment. Vice versa. Prolly arent relationship material but I dont think that defines significance.
