  1. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    BPD is definitely ENTP: Fi blind spot is identity disturbance, Ne-Fe is seeking external validation all the time, inferior Si is falling into the same traps over and over, Ti is trying to rationalize your mood swings away
  2. General Psychology

    Is it possible to truly know your MBTI when everything is so unstable and uncertain? I have a BPD diagnosis (which involves "A markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of yourself") and it seems every time I'm like "yeah, I'm definitely this type!" something changes, usually a life...

  6. Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi everyone! I've been dying to get more perspective on this, so I created an account here to post this topic. I took the MBTI test several times in the past, and researched the cognitive functions. It was pretty clear that I was an INFJ. The I was usually around a 70% preference, N and F were...

    Far too many people interview for jobs the way someone with Borderline Personality Disorder goes about selecting a romantic partner. A single Borderline is so desperate for a relationship that just about anyone will do, provided they are willing to give the Borderline attention. The Borderline...

  12. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Are INFPs the type to be moody/sulky? It seems so. Both during childhood/adolescence and in adulthood. Like temperamental/easily affected, bottling feelings in, not being forthcoming, not wanting to discuss things/keeping things to themselves, having that dark cloud above them, feeling down...

  14. What's my personality type?
    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type? Social anxiety and depression confuse me in deciding my type.

  18. Blog
    I was supposed to bring a letter, I recently wrote to my ex to therapy, but I didn't save the bloody thing. However, I found a lot of drafts and old e-mails written to her, and I thought those might be even better, because they were written long before I sought therapy. Therefore, they were...
