  1. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello fellow INTPs, Some advice needed with regards to developing a healthy work routine. A bit of background: I have always done good in school and university (albeit with minimal and last-minute efforts), and, as a consequence, am now a PhD student. Although I like the group and the topic...
  2. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I think it would be rather interesting for older, more experienced ENTPs to advise younger ENTPs on matters of academia. It's obvious that the quality of curriculum and style of teaching differs greatly from country to country, but even so we'll probably reach a consensus by generalizing a...
  3. Intro
    Hellooooooo! it's me, I was wondering if you knew that was Adele singing. I hope, that you did. Ok I'm done. Anyway hi I'm clichechoas! I'm 20, pursuing a double degree in (BS) psychology and (BA) communication. Ooooh, now it's an interview.. Hm... Okay well I like a lot of things, so...
  4. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist

  5. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    To those of you who are in college: Do you often think your professors are mistaken or can't think critically? Does this frustrate you? How do you cope? Do you sense that some feel threatened by you because you question them?
  6. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    To start this off, I was quite the unorthodox schoolboy. In 5th grade I was constantly heckled for picking up and reading the encyclopedia while my classmates were indulging in The Magic Tree House. When my mom would receive my Christmas list, there would be such things as a Van de Graff...
  7. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This is an extension of the thread I started about INFPs and philosophy. I've always had an ambivalent relationship to academia. I love reading, and my room is full of books - mostly on religion or psychology, and some autobiographies and books on art. However, I find much of academic...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I wonder what the attitude of INFPs to studying philosophy is. Throughout my childhood and teens, I was always called 'the philosophical type' by family. The little glimpses I had of the Buddha, Aristotle, and other philosophers was wonderful. But when, as a young adult, I read philosophy...
