One tip that someone might find useful, but that is likely fairly obvious: Our frequent lack of emotional display is not a bad thing. Emotional displays come and go for us, and when we're not feeling it, it is very hard to be "out there" and demonstrative. Personally, being outward, personable, demonstrative, etc. makes me nervous when I'm not really feeling it. And even if I'm feeling it it can be hard to display.
I have had girlfriends tell me I was emotionally distant, I've had at least one girlfriend freak out about something totally neutral I said about how she looked in a shirt (she said it made her look fat, and I said something like "Well, don't wear it, then."), and then I've had girlfriends think I was "too" feely (when they do come out it can be intense and makes at least me feel insecure).
Ah... Basically, emotions can be tricky for INTPs. So, if you like us, bear with us in that regard.
Though, other INTPs may have no such problems... I don't know...
Yeah, and the only thing that can beat feely in the repulsion department is whiney. Don’t whine kids(leaves a larger quota for me, MWHAHAHAAAHAHAHAhahaha...ahuh..hic..bu....waaaaaahhhh)
Where is the nanotechnology to hormone levels? Medicinal methods to induce INTP asexuality sounds like the perfect solution (at least I think so). The annoying urge to find a mate goes away and you can enjoy life again. Life was simpler before puberty. People were just people.
How can an INTP stop themselves from trying to overanalyze everything about their partners, but conserve their own awareness?
Weird question, but I've had this problem way too much. :P
