We aren’t really heartless. We’re humans too and we have feelings. The things is that you’ll never see those feelings unless we’re comfortable around you and trust you.

Anonymous said: Hi, I'm an INTJ boy, and I've seen a lot of posts saying, by INTJs, that they tend not to feel any emotions to extremes. I have found myself feeling some emotions to a much higher level to other emotions. But i do feel all of them. Also, I have read up and all the sources I've seen say that INTJs can not read emotions, however, I can see emotions like they are questions on a test, does this mean I am not an INTJ? Or is it that there are stereotypes set out for INTJs that I am not conforming to.

This doesn’t automatically mean that you’re not an INTJ. I think that especially reading emotions of others is a thing every INTJ can learn, if he/she is willing to do so. Humans are often quite easy to see through when it comes to this. And feeling deeply just means that your Fi is more developed than the Fi of average and “stereotypical” INTJs.

Anonymous said: Quick poll. Do you INTJs prefer cats or dogs? No hurry to answer this

I personally prefer cats, but I think that this is really depending on personal preferences. You can read out more about pets for INTJs here.

Anonymous said: What are your thoughts on Eugenics? I believe that since human kind is going through the Flynn Effect we as a species should consider this an option for our survival

I don’t really think of this as a good way to go. Just think about it this way: Almost everytime humans managed it to find a cure for some kind of illness, there has been a variation of those viruses in nature causing another illness. So even if we could manage it to evolve to a “perfect species” (which is a terrible thought in my opinion), there would be new problems we’d have to deal with. And it doesn’t help either if everyone has a high IQ (Flynn Effect)…

Anonymous said: So I've come to understand myself as fitting to the INTJ description almost perfectly, though my feeling side is very developed, also. The thing is, I understand that INtJ's are bored with the mundane job and routine work, but I find that I love it. I also find that my confidence is very low, which seems to be odd for an INTJ. Are these things telling of a different type or are they just small variations? Thanks!

Well… Your Se function might be more developed… Hm. I don’t really think that I can tell you your true personality type just by reading through this ask but you can check out my find your type tag if you’re not sure which type you are or take the test again.

Anonymous said: What would be an ideal pet for an INTJ?

That is a very interesting question! Thanks for asking this!

I think that this depends a lot on the personal and individual preferences. But I personally really enjoy having cats around me. They require much less attention than dogs. They’ll tell you if they need something to eat if you forget about and they are just lovely animals in my opinion. But yeah… I guess this really depends on the individual.

What pets do you like? Cats? Dogs? Fish? Reptiles? Spiders? Horses?

Thanks again for this nice question!

Yours,

Sandra

Anonymous said: (Not urgent)The MBTI tests I've taken all classify me very strongly as an INTJ. I find that the characteristics fit for the most part but I lack the self-confidence usually connected to them and am shy and socially awkward. I have been raised to treasure politeness as a virtue and could never, ever do something or leave something undone if it made someone disappointed. I find all this very irrational but can't help it. Any thoughts in how to make this all to be more rational?

The question is: Do you really need to be more rational? Because I don’t think that it would help you to be less shy and gain more self-confidence if you were more rational. To me it seems a bit like as if you’re just an INTJs with a less developed Te. But many INTJs are like that and have this kind of lack of self confidence, believe me. I personally can also relate to this feeling of not wanting to leave anything undone – this is part of the perfectionism many INTJs have. And I think that it’s actually useful that you are a polite person. This may help you to connect to others more easily… So yeah. That’s that. I hope that my answer was helpful to you.

Yours,

Sandra

I don’t know any ISFPs and have therefore no knowledge whatsoever concerning this topic. But you can check out my ISFP tag and my dating tag.

2bitgirly said: Hey there! Just wondering if you know of any INTJ's who enjoy sharing/discussing dreams? I've always loved analyzing both my own dreams and others' and really enjoy trying to dissect meaning from the layers of symbolism often found in them. Might this be something us INTJ's are predisposed to, or just a personal quirk all my own? ^-^

I don’t know any INTJs who have this kind of a hobby, but I’m sure that there might be some followers out there being interested in that. Leave a comment if you share this love for discussing and sharing dreams or contact 2bitgirly!

Yours,

Anonymous said: What kind/sense oft humour do intj have normally?

Sarcasm and dark humor is common amongst INTJs. But I think that the sense of humor is a very individual part of ones personality and can’t be  merged into “one kind of humor” for each personality type.

Anonymous said: how do you feel about a relationship between an intj and an infp? would it be balancing, or just complicated?

It can work out just fine and it can not work at all. It entirely depends on the individuals. Check out my INFP tag and my post about compatibility of INTJs for further words of mine.

Yours,
