    Have tits, and will bear my children whether they like it or not...lol

    I have always been interested in how sex differences affect the way a personality type presents itself. Ultimately, I feel that Thinking women and Feeling men are more "balanced" than their counterparts (have a mastery of their Tertiary functions). Part of this is due to social conditioning, of course, but there are structural differences between male and female brains which undoubtedly affect the expression of personality.

    Please share more on this if you have links or specific information. I have heard this claim many times, but always without any supporting evidence.
    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...

    How Male and Female Brains Differ

    If you want to start a new thread feel free but I don't want to debate this with you here.

    Did I ask for a debate? I asked for some reference material, and the link you provided is actually not bad, for a simple WebMD page. I have read a couple of these observations before (e.g. "The corpus callosum -- the bridge of nerve tissue that connects the right and left sides of the brain -- had a thicker measurement in female fetuses than in male fetuses. "), and would like to learn more.

    I probably will start a new thread when I have time to set it up.

    Statistically, there are higher numbers of female Fs, because these types of temperaments are what society expects of females. Expectations to be more nurturing and eventually go onto raise our own kids. There are plenty of people who fall outside of the mold for some reason or another. One of my best friends IRL is a female INTP but other than that, I don't know many others.

    They/we exist, but we are more in the background, and some may not look like your typical NT at first glance if affected by expectations.

    I couldn't Understand how you could be so bold.
    Maybe I'll find myself smiling on that distant shore...

    Since I study in a field dominated by Ts, I know quite a few female Thinkers, especially STJs.
    But it's true that at a first glance we may not look like your average NT. Personally, I've learnt to build a persona to help me interact with people, I had to learn to use my Fe if I didn't want to be excluded by people.
    I don't think that it's so personal
    Anymore
    I don't think that it's irreversible
    Anymore
    Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper.

    I definitely can relate to the persona. Well, some of it is not being a conventional NT and having high big 5 agreeableness. Ti plays a prominent role on an inner level, but what I act like outwardly/differs inwardly.

    Fe has played a role since a young age even though I'm awkward with it. The role it plays comes out even more in the work place, but all of the functions need to work effectively together in order to perform effectively.

    Exactly. As a female, you're expected to behave in a certain way, whereas for a male INTP it's not that much of a problem. So, with age, you learn to adapt.
    When I was younger I used to reject anything related to Fe when it came to socializing. As a child, I only had male friends because with females it was... harder. There was something in the social rituals I couldn't understand and that made me feel annoyed.
    Now, I think I've learnt to use my Fe decently on the workplace. In the beginning, it was just a deep need for belonging to a group and being in a peaceful environment. As I grew older I've learnt to actively use it, even if it needs a great amount of energy and concentration, and a lot of awkwardness from my failures. I may not be as good as an xSFJ, but I play the role of the weird girl who stands in the background, analyzes stuff, and then somehow participates in keeping the group together.
    I mean, I may have been lucky that I'm a Social first in enneagram so I felt as I had to work on my Fe instead of shutting it down, though.
