  1. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    My mum is an ESTJ and I am having a hard time deal with her. I get on with my nan better and she's ISFJ. Anyways mum is bossy, demanding, shows little to none emotional support, underestimates me and doesnt appreciate me with words. She expresses like no emotions mostly. I am autistic and so is...
  2. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This may be just me because of my autism, but I go through phases of being obsessed with one thing and then I forget about it and pick up a new obsession. A few years ago I was a full-one sweaboo and obsessed with all things Swedish. As that died down I became deeply interested in religion, but...
  3. 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...
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have a tumblr about being autistic, cuz I'm autistic, and I'm not really shy to throw shade at Autism Speaks, Autism Warrior Parents, anti-vaxxers (*cough, cough* Jenny McCarthy *cough, cough*). I mean, they've spoken over us for years, infantilized us, demonized us, etc,. So turnabout is fair...
  5. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I came across this unofficial list written by a woman who has been around a lot of female aspies.* What's the difference between the things on this list and your average INTP bear? I'm seeing a lot of similarities, but I think the motivating reasons might be different. I also see a lot of...
  6. 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...
  7. What's my personality type?
    So I filled out this questionnaire: 1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type? I guess, even though I often fit the stereotypes, I can also be vey loud, sometimes too open, and I love some attention. It’s one reason I love theatre/performing and why I’m majoring in it. I'm...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    It doesn't seem to be a common type around autistics, so I feel kinda out of place. Is anyone else here an autistic INFP? How can those two work together?

  11. General Psychology
    From the Independent: There's more in the article itself, but...This was something I had long suspected would be the case. I remember a quote from Dostoevsky's "Notes From Underground", "I am convinced that to be acutely conscious is a disease. A real, honest-to-goodness disease." so it seems...
  12. What's my personality type?
    Hey everybody, I'm a Russian Asperger's teenager, age 18. I'm unsure with my personality type (I have both E and I parts, S and N, T and F, but probably I am more of a P than a J), but it's hard for me to remember and list all of my personality parts in a single topic, so let's just start...
  13. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone! I'm going to be a freshman in college in a few months and I feel deeply connected to becoming an ABA therapist. ABA, or applied behavior analysis, is a sort of therapy used commonly for individuals with autism. I read Mark Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"...
  14. General Psychology
    In my association with an autistic boy, it appears he was always using peripheral vision when observing me and others. This is the case that when he stares at one thing, in reality he is looking at something else in his vision. The over-dependence on peripheral vision makes him appear like he is...
  15. Blog
    I will never understand why people seem to gang up on or feel compelled to antagonize those who are obviously struggling with mental disorders. What do you hope to accomplish by taunting them? It certainly doesn't help them when you do this? Can't you put aside your disdain long enough to try...
  16. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Anyone who's been professionally diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder or any of the previous autism diagnoses that have now been collapsed into ASD, including Asperger's Syndrome and PDD-NOS. If you're fairly sure of it, what's your Enneagram type? If you want to, please also post your...
  17. Myers Briggs Forum
    I work with kids and adults on the autism spectrum. One of my clients is an INTP. That got me thinking; what are the most common personality types of those on the autism spectrum? If you have experience working with ASD individuals, weigh in with your opinion of what types and functions are...
