    I was actually speaking for everybody. As an analogy, do you react to movies as if the things you see in them are real? This is something we all do, and that's what makes them a successful form of media. It is a mistake to think that the intellect rules over all, especially for 5s, 1s sometimes, and INTP or INTJ types.

    As someone in the anxiety triad, the enneagram teaches that I am ruled over by a certain feeling, anxiety. If I have a 4-wing, then envy is also a factor. This isn't news. And intellectualizing is a known defense mechanism of the 5. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellectualization

    But my critique here isn't being directed at myself. Maybe it's being redirected back at me, but it misses the target. The point is that there are two sides to the story (at least). And that those who criticize me for making an emotional assertion are being hypocritical intellectualizers who repress the existence of an emotional side and idealize themselves as being above all that.

    I see more of a type 6 than a 5w6 coming out in your posts.

    Soft? Most of my friends in real-life describe me as a bit loud and vulgar (usually when I'm hyper though). I've been said to have no indoor voice when I'm excited about something

    I was being facetious, to a point. I see a real distinction between having feelings and acting on them. Yes, I may have emotional reactions to movies, but I don't then make choices and decisions based on those reactions, excepting perhaps whether to watch the sequel. Even in real-life situations, I can distinguish between how I feel about something, and what I have objectively determined to be the best course of action.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I'm not speaking to that, but to the reaction itself. You're just saying that decision-making rules over behavior, where the rational (objective) part knows the difference between a movie and reality. But All I'm saying is that the irrational part does not know the difference, and that we all have this.

    Of course you know the difference between having feelings and acting on them. You would have to be a very small child not to know it. And I think for most of us, if we didn't know the difference then all hell would break loose. That part still exists, only it's been submerged. It hasn't matured.

    I don't get what it is with all these INTPs identifying with INFPs, because after all, INTP is perhaps the most logical of all the types, the theoretically inclined Ti dominant abstract-minded systems analysts, so I would imagine the T/F difference should be bigger for INPs than any other type!

    Yes, but especially at the beginning of somebody's exploration of types and functions you have INTPs saying: "Hey, I'm not a robot, I have feelings and am nice to people, gotta be an INFP" and INFPs going "Hey, I am smart, read a lot and can use logic, gotta be INTP". It happens to the best of us.
