    I'd rather not sit down and talk emotions, I might have to explain myself and the last thing I want is to get into a long talk about emotions.Unless I'm drunk really drunk

    I talk about my emotions only with the right people and more importantly, in the right circumstances. Privacy is a big factor. Time/ability to talk in depth. Generally it has to fit into the conversation somehow, so I'm not just blurting out random stuff. Otherwise, something has to be fairly upsetting for me to bring it up.

    I'll also talk about different emotions with different people, of course.

    I used to never share deeper emotions, but I've begun to open up a little more now that I'm in my mid-twenties. I can see that sometimes it is beneficial to share what I'm feeling, especially when I think that the other person might care to know, or when I think sharing them might make a positive difference.

    I definitely don't like to talk about my emotions, though I talk about them with people that I feel very close too. I vacillate between "word vomit" (as my friend calls it) and taciturnity. I hate the feeling right after you open up to someone and you don't know how they've perceived what you said.

    So, I avoid it.

    With feelings do you mean emotions?
    What do you mean by "let a person in"?

    Myers-Briggs claims that ISTPs are the most prone to keeping very important things to themselves. Naomi Quenck warns that one should not attempt to have Ti dominant types share their feelings while under stress. In fact if you are lucky enough to recognize there may be a problem with them, just allow them to work it out on their own.

    It's clear that ISTPs may have a plethora of reasons for not sharing their feelings that can range from being burned when younger for sharing their feelings (Jung describes Ti types as those most susceptible to being taken advantage of in relationships). Ti in general (or Te) has Fi as their opposite depending on whose theory so they have problems with internalizing their feelings. Or they may take their feelings too lightly. Also Ti is highly independent and consider that to be a sign of vulnerability and oh yea did I mention that Myers-Briggs, Keirsey and other theorists say that STPs are the types that are most prone to the belief that talk is cheap and that action speaks louder than words? I would think that both types would prefer to show their feelings by taking some action.
