  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Don't get me wrong, I love my fellow INFPs! However, there are times where I utterly despise some of my INFP friends. I can't tell whether or not it's because they're unhealthy/underdeveloped, enneagram, or just plain individual character flaws. My best friend is an INFP and we get along...
  2. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Throughout most of my life I haven't had an issue standing out and getting validation the way I want - I did a lot of theater in school and got the literal spotlight. I was a class clown that balanced disrupting the class and pleasing the teacher with creative presentations. Pretty much my whole...
  3. General Psychology
    I've always noticed that young children automatically gravitate towards the person in the room that is paying the least attention to them. I've never liked children much, and don't pay much attention to them, but I will always be nice if they try to talk to me. However, they ALWAYS seem to want...
  4. Member Polls
    This may sound crazy, but watching a behind the scenes bit about making sound effects for some movie caused a bit of a revelation for me - there are a lot of 'sound effects' in real life that I have always been completely oblivious to (it was a while back but I don't think I've asked this...
  5. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So I have a quick question. My attention to physical detail is little to none. Everything I pick up on is from an emotional and mental standpoint. That all seems pretty standard with infps. I have a couple friends that have tested infp and both of them have quite the eye for physical details...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    There are about four 9s in my life right now and I'm trying to get to know them better but they don't really talk about themselves. There are times where a conversation would naturally lead to them and they would speak a little but I still haven't found out much about them other than what the...
  9. Intro
    This is crazy O_O I know I'm online and don't even have to face people here, but the idea of introducing myself is making me quite nervous :frustrating:! Well, I'm here to discus personality types (of course) and get help with my relationships (pretty much just friend relationships). I've only...
  10. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    So I saw this short video on ENTPs recently, and I was shocked in the way we were described. Attention seeking? Always looking for others approval? Intense need for love and acceptance? Are we really like that?? I've always thought of us being, well, one of the the best types, since all around...
  11. Advice Center
    This is going to be a huge essay-type dump of everything wrong about my life. I've always been the kind of person to keep in feelings good and bad. Because of this, I'm prone to bear a lot of guilt, pressure, and all sorts of bad things on my shoulders when I should be talking to people for...
  12. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Does attention ever bother you? In social settings, I tend to attract a lot of attention with the things I say, which gets really exhausting, to be honest. My inquisitive nature and out-of-the-box reasoning tends to manifest itself in the form of mildly shocking rhetoric sometimes. I like...
  13. 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...
  14. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    How would an ENFP (specifically male) act when they like someone romantically? I'm often confused by the ENFP behavior because they have so much love for everyone all the time, and are so warm and bubbly the typical signs of attraction may not apply. One that I'm thinking of gets along with...
  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    My first official post! Hello, everyone. I'm fairly new to personality type and I scored as a fairly high INFJ. I've been looking pretty deeply into things and I'm wondering if anyone has the same problems as I do. As far as relationships (friendship or romantic), I feel quite a high jealousy...
  16. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Sorry for this desperate post but i kind of have no idea what to do. I can't talk to people anymore, and it's not because i'm not trying. I do but it always ends up weird and short. They feel uncomfortable around me. Somehow i'm not able to get along with human anymore... Any advice ?
