As an INTJ, I have always had issues with my emotions. I am quite stoic and calm. I rarely show any emotion in public. Also, I tend to keep quiet around people unless I feel very comfortable.
Some of you have probably read my other post about my platonic friend.....the one whom I sincerely love, (but will never really blossom into anything else other that 'just friends').
I talked a lot with her about everything under the sun from my emotions to sex and marriage (hypotheticals). But I have had this weird feeling that I revealed too much of myself.
I have never had sex. Do other INTJ's feel that revealing themselves to others who they love is an act like sex? I know it sounds crazy. But since she left, I have had this sinking feeling that I 'revealed' way too much. In fact, I have done a lot of soul searching. To be honest there have been moments in the last few months where I just wanted to break down and cry because I was emotionally and intellectually attached to her. I let my emotions get in the way. And that is a mortal sin for an INTJ.
Bottom line: Have any INTJs been in a similar situation? Is this common for INTJ males than INTJ females?
