  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm not trying to undermine people who put others before themselves (I am/was one of them), but.. If I really think about it, I don't think anyone can make such a choice that they don't believe will benefit them in some way. I mean, basically everything we do, we do for our own good. And I...
  2. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Am I the only INFJ out there who isn't particularly altruistic? Don't get me wrong, I donate to charity when I can afford it and I'll help someone if I see they need it, but I don't go looking for it and I don't volunteer. I consistently test as INFJ, but only slightly in favour of Feeling over...

    I guess that INTJs, ENTPs, ENTJs, and INTPs don't really have the reputation of being the necessarily most altruistic people on Earth. But, I am here to break that stereotype. While I am not really altruistic to a fault, I can find myself doing incredibly altruistic things at times. For me, this...
  7. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    [This is me(?!)] I am an INFP. There's just no doubt in my mind/heart. The guilt trips, the rush of feelings, the melancholy, the empathy... But as my test said, I'm not a "strong" INFP. None of my letters have more than a 50% presence. Also when I'm not directly involved emotionally in a...
