    It's possible to be an F and be incredibly inept at expressing emotions. Expression is by definition in the realm of extroversion.

    So an INFP could have underdeveloped Ne and not be able to express Fi judgments. Or an INFJ could have underdeveloped Fe.

    Either way, that distinction doesn't really get you anywhere with introverts. (And not necessarily with extroverts either...)

    So my lack of expressing emotions doesnt really tell me anything. The Feeling part, though, isnt that how i make my decisions? I do consider how it would affect those i care about but other people not so much. But even then i prefer to remain detached emotionally so that i can at least try & make an informed decision.

    Yeah, for an INFP more decisions are F than T.

    This can be true for INFPs. What would lead me to call you INFP over INTP is that you ponder it.

    No, I don't mean expressing emotions as showing it physically to others. I mean expressing emotions as knowing what you (Fi) or others (Fe) are feeling. Most NFs are able to describe their emotions in words. I'm not getting much sense of that from Welsh... Especially not for an INFP with Fi dominant. That's why I'm not buying it.
