  1. [Enneagram Type 9] How to deal with an unhealthy 9w1?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    Hi people, as per the title I’m having a hard time with my 9w1 boyfriend (I typed him, but I’m 99% sure it’s the right fit). We’ve been in a relationship for more than 4 years but I still don’t really know how to deal with his depressive states because he just. Won’t. Speak! I am a 4w3 and...
  2. Curse of Apathy

    General Psychology
    Apathy (not from google or any kind of source), is a state in which the person involved lacks motivation and interest in tasks, things, or life. Apathy can have many sources, such as emotional trauma, depression, personality imbalance, etc. My question to you, have you ever been apathetic or...
  3. [INTP] Nothing matters

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    AGH! I can't take it anymore. All the bullies. All the jerks. All the meanies. Don't they realize nothing matters? Ironic huh, because I am writing this post. (IT DOESNT EVEN MATTER!!!) I look at the world, and see nothing but beauty. But why? Its not like it matters. It doesn't mean anything! I...
  4. [Enneagram Type 9] Could a general attitude of apathy/indolence be due to type 9?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    Type 9s (of average or unhealthy levels of health) are known to be slothful in regards to things that cause them pain or discomfort, habitually choosing to block them out in order to avoid having to deal with them. But could a general attitude of apathy or indolence towards things as a whole...
  5. [Enneagram Type 9] Nines equating apathy with power

    Body Triad - Types 8,9,1
    When I was younger I found that I enjoyed apathy because I liked being unaffected by things. I tended to feel anger towards anything that tried to emotionally affect me because then I felt like that thing was trying to control or own me. It was like if the world couldn't affect my emotions, then...
  6. [INTP] Why is apathy considered evil?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    It puzzles me how people in general seem to shiver at the concept of a person without emotions. Psychopaths/sociopaths are most commonly described as to "having close to no emotions, or no emotions at all". Ironically the very same character-descriptions bring up things such as aggressive...
  7. [INTJ] Severely Apathetic: Is it Unorthodox Even Among our 2%?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I've been swanning in self-analysis lately and have been rapidly discovering more and more about myself every day. This requires elaboration, so bear with me. I have always been aware of the distinct difference between me and my inferiors, peers, and superiors. To put it simply, I am the...
  8. [ESTJ] Always The Organiser

    ESTJ Forum - The Guardians
    I find being an ESTJ I'm a forward thinker and want to get everything done, so often I put my hand up to organise tasks or be the initiator of a group undertaking. The problem being is that sometimes you expect people to help and went they don't the disappointment can be overwhelming. I do have...
  9. [ENFJ] Do other ENFJs get apathetic towards people who wrong them?

    ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hey! So usually I'm very caring about other people. Heck, once I was IN LOVE with a guy and an acquaintance of mine approached me saying she liked him so I set them up (and it hurt like heck!). But, I've been finding that people who continually wrong me make me feel really cold. Usually when...
  10. [ENTP] ENTP - serial killers: motives?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    K so here it is: what you've all been waiting for: its coming-- I'm writing a tv series and I've got this serial killer in it named Jimmy. I need to know why he kills people and what he's like as a serial killer. He's one of the main characters. He doesn't kill for control because a. if he...
  11. Circumcision, Anti-Social, Psychopathy, Sadistic Sociopath and Links to Usernames

    General Psychology
    Circumcisions in baby boys involve the painful procedure of cutting through the foreskin, and separating it from the penis. This Satanic practice causes fear and torture, which mentally traumatizes the child, and lowers his energetic frequency or vibrations. Although there are studies showing...
  12. INFP stressed and wildly depressed

    Intro
    My names is doug, I'm 15 and I live with my extremely conservative mother and stepdad. As an INFP I've always struggled to fit in. With my peers, my parents, my brother, and basically anyone and everyone in my life. In the past year, I've struggled with my emotions. I've tried to suppress...
  13. [INFP] Rend the Sky and Smite the Earth (almost a rant?)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So I had a weird moment tonight, but it requires a bit of backstory first. Plain and simple, the girl I cared for married someone else, the same night I had a gig dj'ing a local wedding reception (she lives on the other end of the state.) Why I keep taking wedding sets I don't know. They bother...
  14. [ISTP] The ISTP and Apathy

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Do you find that you, quite simply, don't care about/are apathetic towards a lot of things in life? Let me give you an example; for starters, I'm an apatheist, which means I have no opinion on religion as I'm just not bothered. Also, I have some major exams next week which I should be revising...
  15. [INTP] When You Feel Bleh

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    When you just feel offcenter, and there's no apparent (or good) reason for it, what do you do to make yourself feel better?
  16. [INFP] Am I an INFP troll?

    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...
  17. [INTP] Low vs High intensity life

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Ok so I am 19 and thinking about what I want to do with my life and this is what I allways come back to - Low vs High intensity life When I was younger lots of my self esteem was based on my personal strengths (Obvious I know but stay with me). So I assumed I would have a career that allowed...
  18. [ENFJ] Emotional Cut Off Point

    ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    I'm not too sure how to explain this but do you know sometimes when there are just situations so incredibly bad that it causes you to cut off all your feelings and emotions when dealing with a problem. A point where you think from a very objective standpoint on how to solve a problem or resolve...
  19. [INTP] What are we Waiting For?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'd like to re-explore a topic we've discussed before: http://personalitycafe.com/intp-forum-thinkers/37700-does-feel-like-youre-waiting-something.html It's difficult to explain this "waiting feeling" I experience. I'll do my best to put it into words. I feel like there's something important I...
  20. [INFJ] INFJs place in the world

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    This is why I love this forum so much. I come here and read these posts and I know that I am not the only person in the world with this perspective. I have been thinking about these things all the time, and I have started to form an idea about us INFJs and our place in the world. I feel that...
