    Default When do ISTPs share their deeper emotions?

    I'm wondering under what circumstances do ISTPs let a person "in," and share their feelings? Question for the ISTPs and those who have experience with this lovely type

    My little brother will very occasionally open up to me, and we'll have a conversation about that kinda stuff, but it's very rare, I try to treasure those conversations because I feel like I'm connected to him a little more when we do that. But it's probly good that most of our conversations are about funny websites/videos/Jim Rome show/hot babes/The Simpsons. Too much deep talk would just be weird.

    Generally, no. It's not ever "typical" behavior for me to be discussing my deeper emotions with other people, that is kept to myself. The exception is when I'm highly stressed, and it's someone I really trust (and know wouldn't mind listening/talking about it), I let a bit out/discuss a bit to "release" some of it. However, in normal day to day life, it isn't something that I'll discuss, nor is it something I will even give an answer to if asked about.

    Whether this is normal for ISTPs or not, I'm not sure.

    Even with someone you really trust and are close to?

    Btw, changed the title from "do" to "when." I didn't want to assume anyone avoided emotions entirely.

    What's a deeper emotion and why do you want to borrow one?
    No offense.

    Depends how close the person is, I usually only share things with loved ones aka people I trust. But thats a rare few. But even when its people like that, I tend to only give half of the information if you know what I mean.

    With my istp father, everyone is really clear about his emotions. Though he was, when I was a young boy not so forthcoming with his emotions, I now as an adult know what it was all about. He is Libra by sign and though I do not believe in those signs, his greatest wish is always harmony.

    In my opinion, if you want to, you can get an istp to cry on you. But in that moment you maybe notice that you are totally out of line and have overstepped your boundaries. Cause from what I know from my father, he is one of the greatest Dads you can have.

    Btw.: He always likes to say that he would have become an investment broker, if he had the chance (which he hadnt) and not a plumber. xD He runs his own plumbing company at the moment now for like 30 years and you can say, we are pretty rich . But that investment broker thing reminds me of the MBTI and the close connection between istp and istj. Maybe J after all, is in fact something that comes with age.

    Oh dear good that will make me entj. Hope I am wrong xD

    I have a really good ISTP friend. In the 5 years I've known him, he has talked about his feelings maybe 3 times. Of course, it's a scale. He usually talks about the consequences of the feelings rather directly (aka, what is stressing him), just not the feelings themselves.
