  1. [ENFP] Teach me to *demonstrate* caring better

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Brethren: Thoughts, suggestions welcome! I am an Fi user, an ENFP, and as such, 'showing care' is not a strength. ESFJs are genius-level caregivers, right alongside the ISFJs. Their Fe+Si is a far better tool to explicitly express affection and care. I'd like to learn to show care in ways...
  2. [ISFJ] Teach me to *demonstrate* caring better

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    ISFJs, you are genius-level caregivers, right alongside the ESFJs. I am an Fi user, an ENFP, and as such, 'showing care' is not a strength. Your SiFe is a far better tool to explicitly express affection and care. I'd like to learn to show care in ways that people understand easily. Right now...
  3. [ESFJ] Please teach me how to *demonstrate* caring

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    ESFJs, you are genius-level caregivers, right alongside the ISFJs. I am an Fi user, an ENFP, and as such, 'showing care' is not a strength. Your FeSi is a far better tool to explicitly express affection and care. I'd like to learn to show care in ways that people understand easily. Right now...
  4. [INTJ] ENFP - what is the perceived value?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    OK - question for INTJs. If this question has been asked and answered ad-nauseum, pray tell me where. I'll go read up (and delete this post). I know the whole INTJ-ENFP thing. Or so I have been thinking. But there is this nagging question that refuses to leave me. Context The mature INTJs...
  5. [Enneagram Type 9] Are you particularly affectionate?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    I got a little curious. If we're all about maintaining our inner peace, is a moving emotion such as romantic passion/attachment something that we try to keep under control, the same as if it were a negative emotion? Do you feel a need to show physical affection, or do you not feel strongly one...
  6. [ENFP] Are You 'Physically Affectionate' As The Type Is Described To Be?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    A lot of descriptions describe ENFPs as being quite physically affectionate and loving characters, I for one can see this point A LOT. But I've also seen ENFPs say things like "yeah, we don't need to hug, I don't like doing that whole thing", I don't exactly remember the context but I know they...
  7. [INFJ] ESFP man crushing on INFJ man - ADVICE PLEASE

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Being an ESFP who is very upfront with flirting and feelings, trying to figure out this INFJ is confusing me. Any INFJ's insight on trying to understand this is helpful. Even if you aren't LGBT. HELP! This will be a long post. Sorry. The Se in me remembers every detail and feels the need to...
  8. [INTP] INTP expressing intimacy/affection??!?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    There's a tl;dr at the bottom if you don't have the patience for this because I got a little carried away. I'm an INFJ female in a relationship with an INTP male. We're both college sophomores. We met via mutual friends and became close very quickly. We are both very quiet, I guess, and find...
  9. [ENFP] The Science of Affection

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I'm curious to know how the various mbti types differ in their opinion and understanding of the following logic, and I'll discuss it further with anyone who bites: All relationships feed on affection. Friendships, romances, acquaintanceships, all of them are stronger and more satisfying when...
  10. [ENTJ] enfp asking - some entj thoughts on signs of affection, please

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    hi dear entjs, i don't know many of you in real life. actually i think i only know one very well - and life made me date that man for 6 months now. but i don't want to ask for dating advice - just curious if there are any generalizations that could be made to get a closer picture... it is...
  11. [INFP] Coping with your brain on love drugs

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey Everybody, It's been a while since my last post on here; I got such a positive response the last time I put my problems down that I thought I'd do it again! I've been good friends with a particular girl for about 5 years now. She was dating another close friend of mine for several years...
  12. [INFP] ENFP madly in love with INFP (who can't do long distance) - advice?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi INFPs, I could really use your help/advice/pat on the back. Ready for a Nicholas Sparks novel? I (the American ENFP) fall head over heels for a shy musician (the English INFP) on my year abroad in the UK. [[Spontaneous chemistry]] I went too fast for him so we remained friends for eight...
  13. [INFJ] If you hug an INFJ (stolen from the INFPs)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I saw this on the INFP forum and got jealous x) Let's play finish the sentence: If you hug an INFJ...
  14. What are you Cuddling with Right Now?

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I know not all NFs are 'touchy-feely'-affectionate, but it seems like many of us have an affinity for cuddly things, so What are You cuddling with? Cats? Plushies? Blankets? Friends? Share with pictures if you can :kitteh: (I got this idea from misreading a thread title about 'struggling' with...
  15. [ISFP] ISFP finds communicating frustrating and difficult - how can he improve himself?

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I'm an ENFP girl dating my ISFP best friend. We've been together for 8 months now, and I know he's always had trouble accepting himself, and the way he communicates, but it has become even more prevalent now that he wants the relationship to grow and flourish. I love him to death and we both...
  16. [ENFP] ENFP: Feeling smothered easily?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    ENFP: Do you feel smothered easily? I was wondering if this was just me or if it's a trait that ENFP's share. I feel smothered incredibly easily. If a guy is pursuing me and he says all the right things (eg. your hair looks pretty, you're so sweet, etc.), I get a little nauseous and pull away...
  17. [Enneagram Type 3] What you do when your need for center stage goes unfulfilled

    Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    Hi people. I tested E3 and boy is it me. It has helped so much to know enneagram stuff about myself. But as a 3, I run into a problem where I can have the "void of not being paid attention to". In life, my comeup has been slow, so you can imagine, right!? Omg, its been a horror story. the past...
  18. [INTJ] How do you like to be consoled?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Just out of curiosity, as a lot of INTJs have reported hating hugs and affection and mushy things like that... Say you were depressed, or you were going through a tough time. How would want people to console you? Assuming these people are your parents, SO, or best friend? Thank you! :D
  19. [INTJ] I Need Some Answers from You Masterminds . . .

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    So, I have this INTJ boyfriend. At least, he claims to be INTJ and from my point of view he matches up pretty well. However, he is super physically affectionate and, in fact, kind of cutesy. Is this some sort of way of making up for the fact that neither of us are feelers, or are you all like...
