    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Are you always thinking about things that could go wrong, things that are wrong, or any such thing thereof? I am. Is there always going to be something wrong, and is that what we are/would be like in our relationships with other NTs? And I know we will think about everything about it until our...
  4. I'm New! Pick At My Brain (INFJ, 4w3)

  9. Brain & Gut

    Cognitive Functions
    I'm curious about the link between the cognitive functions and the brain/gut interaction that they have with each other. What are your thoughts about this idea? Could a cognitive function be related to either of the two? Could the thinking functions be more brain related? Could the feeling...

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Anyone welcome. I have a lot of those, but I forget most of them. Here's a shower thought: I looked in the mirror and puffed out my ribcage.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey y'all. I was wondering if any of you have ever had any deep philosophical thoughts that bothered you and you didn't know how to respond to them. That's been happening to me a lot lately.

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I occasionally get this feeling that I am much more awesome than everyone around me even though I don't think I have done anything extraordinary. Am I being Narcissistic or is my brain spewing rewarding chemicals to keep me happy for no reason? Either way it feels great. =)
