    Thank you for taking your time.

In conversations, even on intellectual topics, their focus is more on facts than implication or interpretation, though older ones seem more able to expand on facts. The ones I know are more above-board and transparent than INTJs. You know where you stand with them, and you couldn't ask for a more loyal friend.
    Thank you, but the points you gave are generally known and fall under the accepted norm radar.

    If my own experience is any indication, it is because we (I) aren't really offended by such comments. They are just words on a forum - big deal. If the mood strikes, we may reply with sarcasm. If there are facts to correct, we may do this if we have time. That said, we do sometimes speak up for each other. I've done so here for Engineer and Zarathustra on occasion (not that they need it), and others have done so for me. INTJs can take care of themselves for the most part.
    Well I thought it was because -

    Nah, just teasing. Your answer was sufficient. But the answer to the 1st is not, as I mentioned.

    Well, that's been my experience of ISTJs. Perhaps others will have observations more off the beaten track. Most of the ISTJs I know are at work, so our interactions are mainly professional. My father and one of my closest friends are ISTJs also. Yes, they too exhibit many of the familiar behaviors, but they are also two of the most responsible and generally honorable people I know, probably how their own tert Fi plays out.
    Though the ground was burnt and everything turned into ashes, we will revive again. The sky is still blue, the crashing waves from long ago are unchanged. This is Earth, our planet. This dream is in the hearts of people; so long as they do not abandon it, it will not fade away. For the sake of tomorrow, keep a song in your heart. For the sake of our future, let us stop our crying and stand on our ground firmly.

    What does it mean when an INTJ only sporadically responds to your emails?

    What does it mean? I've been funny, I've been cool with the lines, ain't that the way love's supposed to be?

    Couple options:
    A) They're busy and don't have time to reply quickly and/or they forgot to reply.
    B) They are unsure of what to say, and want to make sure that they've got a thought-out response.
    C) They feel a bit anxious toward you or they consider their relationship with you to be more shallow than you do.

    This is probably why you feel so dirty when they start talking cute.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    The point is probably moot.

    How often are INTJ's in touch with their feelings? If you are in touch with your feelings, how often does this conflict with your thoughts and what do you do to reconcile these differences?

    Have you experienced difficulty establishing relationships or maintaining relationships for being out of touch with your feelings.. and what is the bottom line on this for you? (ex. find someone similar, not get involved in relations, work on emotional connection, etc)

    In addition to these (and perhaps in conjunction), I would add that perhaps they don't see a strategic benefit to responding.

    And this need not be an entirely selfish thing; per #2, they might just feel that they're not sure yet how to create the optimal outcome.

    In fact, until the time comes that they feel they know how to create the optimal outcome, they might just feel that the optimal outcome is achieved by not responding to your most recent email.

    I'd written a long, deeply thought-out answer to your questions (which were excellent, btw), but my browser crashed and it was lost to the ether.
