  1. INTJ + Depression/Anxiety

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Well hello world! As part of my self-care vacation, I am starting a lovely journal project that is completely open to comments and feedback. Here's a smidge... Myself in bullet-list form: Slightly quirky 33 year old female INTJ Master's Degree in Communications, Minor in Japanese Not married...

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    I'm not really good at writing a post like how anyone does in this site, and English isn't my first language. I just wanted to know about ways on how to deal with depression at the point where I have no one to talk to (especially family including parents) and I tend to appear more "Introverted"...
  3. [Enneagram Type 9] COVID 19 and Type 9. Fear of loss and being alone.

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    I am curious how type 9s have been reacting to the coronavirus pandemic. Everything I've read (which, granted, is very meme-y and didn't contain much nuance) made it sound like nines would all be numbed out and ignoring the situation. To be honest, I would love to have that reaction right now. I...
  4. Anxiety and awkwardness

    General Psychology
    Do you ever just think of how awkward you are due to your anxiety or randomly remember some cringy moments you've had in the past? Just today, I met the son of an elder man who died a few days ago and the moment I was introduced to him I actually gave my condolences smiling as if seeing a...
  5. 461 and 641 Tritype on Anxiety

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I recently read a new article on a Katherine Fauvre's website that was sent on her newsletter (couldn't find in on the website, sorry) about the 461 and 641 tritype combinations and one snippet caught my attention : Upon reading that last bold sentence, I was wondering if any combinations of...
  6. Going to see a therapist for the first time ever. Kinda scared.

    General Psychology
    I've suffered from anxiety and depression for most if not all of my adult life. I always remember saying I wanted to see a therapist, hell I even have it written down in one of my old diaries from highschool. I don't know why I never bothered doing it. I was never well off, so I think I just...
  7. Artist’s Dismal Dilemma

    The Art Museum
    I want to warn you that my posting may be melancholic to some, but sometimes this is how I feel. I am what I don't want to be, which is an artist, I used to work but tired out quickly, faltering in the normal lines of work. I became a painter shortly after developing my unique skill of painting...
  8. [INTP] Relationship Anxiety and INTPs

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Shit I need help. I'm new to relationships because I only really became open to the possibility this year. But do any other INTPs have relationship issues. As in whenever you see the person or going to see the person youre in a relationship with, you get anxiety? I'm not good at any part of...
  9. [INFP] Feeling lost in life

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So like I am in my last year at university and I am actually starting to freak out! Everytime I think about my future and having to get a job, or basically anything future related I have a panic attack...... like I'm not ready.... I just wanna chill in my cacoon at home away from akward social...
  10. [INFP] Anyone else blow things up in their heads?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm not sure if this roots from anxiety, or having enneagram 6 in my enneagram tri-type, but I always turn little things into major problems in my head. And I say this unironically: it's a big problem for me haha. It's hard to pinpoint examples because I can explain them all away, so I'm just...
  11. Anxiety strikes again

    Advice Center
    It's annoying having to hold back tears in class. Deep breaths only work for so long. I escape to the bathroom. Everything is a blur. My mind races, I'm forgetful, I lose track of time, I can hardly concetrate. I zone out. Simple worries about school turn into bad memories, then unrelated...
  12. A Young Romantic - INFP

    Intro
    How can I express the amount of hopelessness that permeates around me? Every day, I have to watch and listen to people needlessly suffering from things that have little to no lasting value. Perhaps it is presumptuous of me to project my values upon others, but it has become increasingly...
  13. Sharing to Connect.

    General Psychology
    I just (on a desperate whim) did a google search of "conventionally good looking and lonely". I usually don't find many gems (who does right? a gem is hard to find) in the search and end up disappointingly weeding through irrelevant results and dated forums. Short back story: I had plans for...
  14. I'm an ENFP Dating and Living with a Depressed INFP -Any Advice?

    Sex and Relationships
    Hello out there. My sweetie is pretty depressed and has been working for his family and sorting through his past things because there is no longer room to store them there. He is 29, feels like a complete failure and spending time near his family, I think, is making it worse. Partially...

  16. How does mental illness affect your type? *trigger warning*

    What's my personality type?
    When I was younger I always seemed to type as an ENFP, and I did not really agree with that because I don`t like being around people much and seem to need a huge amount of alone time. I now keep testing as an INFJ or INFP. So....here is some background on my question. I have severe, chronic...
  17. [INTJ] INTJ Men with High-functioning Autism or Asperger's, please respond...

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Do you ever have the tendency to not know that you're feeling deep feelings for someone until you've inadvertently hurt them by saying there wasn't a connection (when there was. we talked every day and had been physical after a revelation of feelings), there was an emotional ending to your...
  18. [ENFP] Dealing with judgment, confrontation, and family parties?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi everyone, I recently have connected with two thinker types, and this has been really great for me because they have a completely different perspective on the world and everything. So I'm learning a lot from them right now, but I do have something pretty sensitive that I don't feel completely...
  19. [INFJ] Always restless, rushed and stressed!

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello everyone. I almost cannot believe that this forum exists and can't wait to get involved with you all. I was just wondering if you guys can relate to a constant feeling of internal stress, imposed deadlines and not being able to relax until everything is done - chores, appointments...
