    deaths

    Ik do not express a lot of sadness and crying etc. I miss people who died, but life comes and goes. It is how it is. It is a bit of a mild melancholy no hysteria. Usually I think of the nice things I used to have with a loved one, that makes me smile. Like in a loving memory you look back at...

    Emotionally Sensitive INTPs?

    I am very sensitive, I have lots of emotions all the time. But I do not express them very elaborately. They are inside. During conversation I can be very curious and analytic (b.e. if someone is telling me about their illness I want to know exactly what happens in the body) that seems...

    Yep, that makes sense how you put it. The subject they study, searching for some sort of reasoning, trying to order reality, existence as they perceive it.
