  1. Survey on enneagram type and parent types.

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I posted on reddit about a month ago but to get statistical tests I need to get more responses. Here's the form. There is info at the top detailing some instructions (only if you want to ;>)
  2. [INFP] How did you meet the person you care most about?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    The more detail the better!
  3. [ESFJ] Please teach me how to *demonstrate* caring

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    ESFJs, you are genius-level caregivers, right alongside the ISFJs. I am an Fi user, an ENFP, and as such, 'showing care' is not a strength. Your FeSi is a far better tool to explicitly express affection and care. I'd like to learn to show care in ways that people understand easily. Right now...
  4. [ENFP] What were you like as a child?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I don't think this question has been asked yet, apologies if it has. What were you like as a child (could be both toddler-aged and older)? And if you've changed drastically, what caused the transformation?
  5. [INFJ] Young and Adult INFJs | Am I too childish?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So I've been lurking in the INFJ sub-forum and reading fellow INFJs posts, and I can't help but think that what they write seems very poetic, mature, kind, and basically very, very beautiful writing style. Whereas my posts are... childlike... and I'm wondering if this is because I'm young. Or is...
  6. Personality Traits in the Womb? Moms share your thoughts.

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I know pinpointing actual type is difficult with kids as they’re still developing, but while being pregnant myself I’ve been wondering how much other moms feel like they could sense about their child while still in the womb. I’m wondering if they have found much correlation between relative...
  7. Are you/Would you be a "good" parent?

    Member Polls
    As stupid as this question may sound, I'd like to read your opinions on this one. I expect everyone to be honest. Please include your MBTI/Cognitive preferences and any other personality-related information you find relevant to your answer. I'm most probably an ISTJ, Enneagram 6(w5), somewhat...
  8. Personifying the Psyche

    Cognitive Functions
    I just want to say at the beginning that, while this post specifically applies to novels, it doesn't necessarily need to. I'm aiming to present a theory on how the cognitive functions of a person might be personified, not just for writing but in any place where it might be used. * * * As an...
  9. [ISFP] How do you get a young and previously abused ISFP to open up

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    Hi. So about a year ago, I met my childhood best friend for the first time in over two decades, and after one thing led to another, I ended up staying with her. She has a 7 year old boy who I'm pretty sure is an ISFP and a 5 year old girl who I'm pretty sure is an ENTP. They go to an extremely...
  10. Child Abuse Prevention and Support Resources

    Advice Center
    Abuse of children is a disturbingly common reality. There are various kinds of abuse - some more obvious than others - which effect children all over the world. These include sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and neglectful abuse. Each of these types of abuse are all serious and can...
  11. [ENFP] Does ANYBODY get my N-ness?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I simply would like some ideas: What causes frustrations between an ENFP child and his ESFJ/ISTP parents? Where is the disconnect?
  12. [INFP] INFP Kid Activites - What did you do?/Suggest

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Question: So you INFPs. . .What did you do when you were kids? Background: I've got a 10-years-old INFP little brother-in-law who loves video games and we (my iNTJ husband) and I play with him frequently. But we don't have a ton of Ne :tongue: and we can't play video games with him all the...
  13. [INFJ] What MBTI type would you want your child to be? Would you try to influence it?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I love being an infj and I think I would want any child of mine to be infj or intj because I think that's how I would get along with them/understand them/be able to support them the most (and think of all the interesting conversations we could have! Like I have with my infj/intj parents), but...
  14. How confident are you with this system?

    Cognitive Functions
    So this thought suddenly popped in my head on my journey home earlier today. How are cognitive functions formed and developed? Is it something that we are innately born with, or are we shaped by the unknown and external circumstances? I wonder how often this question is addressed. Now, I...
  15. [ISFJ] How do you think an ISFJ would react to....

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hello PerC ISFJ's! I've been reading through some posts about ISFJ relationships (particularly parent-child relationships) and I've been very impressed and helped by your insights. I'm trying to get a better grasp on how to manage my relationship with my mother. I've basically been resorting...
  16. [INFP] were you "infp-esque" as a child?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    ¿ :shocked:
  17. Anxiety/depression + teenager => I'm a mess => help

    Advice Center
    Hi! I'm 16 and this is the 100000th time I write this line because the page would refresh whenever I go look up sth. :D School I'm in high school atm, will begin 11th grade this autumn, Maths Informatics. Which doesn't suit me much. Maths was never my thing, although I got good at it because of...
  18. Extroverted Parents Trying To Change Their Introverted Child

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Summer vacation! The best time of the year for a kid in school... Right... Well not for me. You see my ENFJ (I am an INTP) mother always tries to make me more extroverted (I am already outgoing because of they way she raised me) and summer seems to be when she does this the most, she always...
  19. Need help with the type of my young cousin with autistic, OCD and OCPD tendencies?

    Guess the type
    I am having trouble diagnosing my 12-year old male cousin. I babysit him and his brother very frequently and am having a lot of difficulties. Please help! I'm going to give LOTS of information so you can help me with an accurate type diagnosis, bear with me! His father has OCPD (but no one in...
  20. [ENTP] The Perfect Birthday for the ENTP child?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Backstory: I've been babysitter for a few years now, and I've gone through about 25 families. Being a babysitter, I always create bonds with kids - however I met a kid a couple months ago, & his mom immediately hired me due to our instant connection, which is apparently rare for him to show...
