  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Yeah I'm pretty selfish. So is everyone else in their own way. Humans are selfish creatures. But yeah I was being particularly selfish. But do I regret my actions? We will simply have to see in the future because I see the different perspectives. I like to think this scenario is sort of a Fi vs...
  2. General Psychology
    From the journal Review of General Psychology, this article: "Stalking the True Self Through the Jungles of Authenticity: Problems, Contradictions, Inconsistencies, Disturbing Findings—and a Possible Way Forward" by Roy F. Baumeister First Published April 26, 2019...
  3. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Ok, so I've hit a roadblock with the INFP I mentioned on another thread here, that I'm dating. She has brought up in every phone conversation and text conversation the past week that "you be you" and "you don't need to act a certain way around me, I will still like you." or like last night "I'm...
  4. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hi all the ISFJs out there, Just want to get some input from your experience, or what you think about this. Recently I starting to suspect if people within the same MBTI categories could share the same childhood experience or neuro-brain wiring. Does the brain wiring make us who we are as...

    You know, maybe when they tell you to fill out the visitor card it's not so bad. But this church had someone call my phone when I was at work, and the pastor mailed me a handwritten letter where he expresses his hope that I'll pursue membership in the church. I know they're trying to be nice...
  6. Cognitive Functions
    The question is self-explanatory. Of course, finding out that some friends are tagging you alone because they feel bad for you instead of wanting you as a true friend might be bothersome to anyone, regardless of type. However, since Fi is more concerned with authenticity than Fe, do you think...
  7. Cognitive Functions
    Introverted Feeling seems to have a correlation, especially the higher in the stack it is, to being authentic to the self. It seems true, especially when I observe it in other Fi doms. They seem to dislike fakery. However, if I had to take it apart, I wouldn't say this is the real reason for the...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    After reading this thread about http://personalitycafe.com/infp-forum-idealists/829385-authenticity.html I wonder how many of you have lead a similar life. I value authenticity a lot in other people but can't quite make it myself - I guess I just don't have the courage to be myself and rather...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Right now there are many parts of my identity that just don't fit me into my environment at all and it's straining my social life. Personally, I don't feel comfortable or even safe changing myself to fit in right now. I bet every INFP has thought to themselves at one point in their lives "I'm...
  10. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I can usually see though facades rather easily but what’s key to getting an ENTP to willing drop the persona they put up in exchange for authenticity and intimacy?
  11. Type 7 Forum - The Enthusiast
    I like this type put together - So full of energy and life that sometimes it's not needed to look deep into the context of what they say and do but rather just embrace it! :sun-smiley: I have such a friend and as much as I now enjoy (and learn) from embracing this side of them, it also makes me...
  12. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Before I go into this, I am very much aware that MBTI is a guideline and cannot confirm how friendships or relationships work out! Therefore this thread is me voicing what is happening whilst I continue to progress in all that I do: I've come to the conclusion that after an odd downhill(ish)...
  13. Cognitive Functions
    Okay, so one of the big headlines of Fi is authenticity and striving to 'be yourself' as much as possible. Fi always wants to be genuine, from what I gather. I'd be interested to know how that manifests in Fi types who care about reputation and being popular, etc. Insecurity and wanting to be...
  14. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've got tons, I realize a lot of the time when I talk to people, considering that I'm generally comfortable with them, I go onto the full metaphorical-mode whenever whatever topics that we're discussing about requires you ponder and analyze. It's almost like metaphorization is the default mode...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I believe in being passionately and courageously yourself. I believe in speaking up about what is important to you. Stepping out of your comfort zone. Being unashamed and comfortable in your own skin. We are so often striving to fit into other peoples definition of what is acceptable and...
  16. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    We live in an age of ever expanding technology. With it, there comes an inevitable reality, more and more of our lives are broadcasted and much privacy is lost. With this decline, does that breed more authenticity because more of your self, at least some of your true self, is broadcasted? Or...
  17. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    For a long time, I've been dissatisfied with my life. I'd put my parents' needs before my own. I'd honor their wishes to study for a good major (Comp Sci) to earn a well living when I wanted to study theatre and film; that was the last thing I ever wanted to do, but I wanted to make them happy...
  18. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    To keep from derailing The King of Dreams's insightful thread Common Things said to ENFPs, I started this one! The King of Dreams recently cited Robin Williams as an example of the "ENFP Wall." I would guess it is no mystery to ENFPs the dynamics of Mr. Williams' personality. Despite my E, I...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone! I am a new member of this forum! Before I go to my question, I thought I'd give some background information on why I think I'm an INFP. I've yet to take any paid typing test so I know that I type as an INFP only on the basis of the free personality typing tests available...

    I want to paint a picture of the world and use some metaphors to illustrate some dynamics I experience in my life and that I see around me. This meditation isn't centered on type, and it's not so much theoretical as it is metaphorical. It's just a collection of images and metaphors that have...
