Curious to know how you dealt with your issues. Do you just repress your issues? I have tried to do just that and they blew up in my face.
I am a rational person, because I can easily spot the source of my emotional issues, and see how they led me to the things from a certain perspective, but I still can't control my emotions.
I have also wondered if it was my early environment that shaped my current personality into INTP...I grew up with an alcoholic parent, and a lot of the things I read about "adult children of alcoholics" seem to me like traits that could be attributed to the INTP-such as constant denial or repression of feelings, not trusting their emotions and feelings,chronic lack of trust, over-responsibility, or lack of it.
In addition, I also have suffered from the "victim" perspective on life, as well as the desire to be loved and accepted by all, to the detriment of personal development.
