It's kinda weird.

    I actually don't think there's something wrong with me, I'm just really unusual because it's like my attachment to people is directly proportional to what I mentally think is appropriate to the situation. I have to give myself permission to feel attached to people, and it's an unconscious thing. And even then if they were to reject me, that would all go away and I would walk away and not look back. Because it's illogical to be attached to people who don't want you. And it's not really that I am closed off either; I can have a lot of fun and be affectionate with people, and see us as friends. We just might always be just friends, even if we act like a couple.
    That sounds very different from my interpersonal interactions and judgments.

    It's more helpful to deal with specific identifiable issues than to try typing oneself according to some vague and confusing typology.
    I'm definitely going to read this. It sounds like me.

    But, inferior Fe is said to be like this.

    And yet previously you wrote:

    " it is mostly applying objectively true impersonal principles to social areas based on what produces the greatest good for the greatest number of people, balancing the needs of individuals against each other. It probably looks NF"

    It probably does, as well as IJ. But then you treat it as secondary, although you said "mostly" in the quote.

    Hmm. I know people of one type can show the traits differently, but I think even if I was completely healthy I would behave more like INTP. And sexually I am more NT than NF. I know a lot of NT's do show an emotional connection sexually, but that is the typical domain of the NF's. They need to feel emotionally connected to be intimate, or being intimate increases their emotional connection. Whereas I behave like a stereotypical guy. I do feel a sense of intimacy with people, and it makes me feel closer to them; it's just not romantic. My romantic feelings are completely separate. And during the experience I connect more on a spiritual level than emotional. And it really wouldn't bother me to have a special experience with someone and then not see them again. I know the way I am describing this is probably not like the type descriptions, but it is the general idea behind it.

    No I mean mostly as in most of what it consists of. That's how it works. I just don't think about it all the time.

    Well like I say, this is me and not everyone. But the underlying principles behind my behavior are more like what I've read for INTP. Not saying every NT should be like me and everyone else is NF.

    This has just been my impression of the differences based on what I've read and observed in other people.

    The word "spiritual" really stands out here.

    Which of these seven Jungian archetypes do you identify with most?

    The hero: Rescuer, champion
    The maiden: Purity, desire
    The wise old man: Knowledge, guidance
    The magician: Mysterious, powerful
    The earth mother: Nature
    The witch or sorceress: Dangerous
    The trickster: Deceiving, hidden

    I was just making a point that NFs can have NSA sex, one night stands, and FWB-style relationships.

    Yeah I thought it would. It's such a charged word that people have all kinds of associations with. What I mean is in a tantric way, of the divine energy in me connecting with the divine energy in someone else. We are divinity because we are alive and have spirits. Sacred harmony between feminine and masculine forces on the physical plane. And I can do this with anyone, and we don't have to be in a relationship.

    I'll look at those and get back to you.

    I just wanted to clear that up and not be thrown into the NF bag just because I have a sense of spirituality.
