    IDK... I'm a wall-o-texter and I use bullet points like that in self-descriptions.... but I do think the OP is INTP.


    To the OP: everyone has feelings and emotions. Having empathy means you're not a sociopath . The Fi ego is built around what is valuable/important/necessary in relation to the human condition. This means we experience our feelings as rational, and the emotions are signals or supporters that tag along. You speak mostly of impersonal thought - thinking of things in terms of what it is as detached from a human context, not what it's worth in terms of people. When you speak of "feeling", you link it with emotion as if it's mainly a sentimental experience. This suggests your feeling is NOT dominant, and in the case of the INTP, inferior.

    IMO, a lot of INxPs get stuck on the T/F thing because of the play between the dominant and inferior functions.

    A lot of INTPs question their T, actually. So I've heard.

    It's amazing what Ti-dom can do to you!

    Hi - yes, it is VERY important that we don't think of T type people as having no emotions or of introverts as not needing people. That would make them less than human. From my observations, T's have just as strong emotions as F types, it's just that they don't make decisions by them and are better at laying them to one side when considering things. They are also less liable to consider other's emotions, but that doesn't mean that, when faced with them, they don't care at all. They might offer rational solutions, but this would be because they care.

    Indeed, I've been observing this more and more as of late.

    Yes, I seem to be analyzing more from a logical standpoint.



    Also, sorry for digging up this grave (topic), it's been a busy year and I just remembered to come on here and read the post and realized I haven't replied to all of you, so thank you once again.
