    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Would you say you had a pleasant or a difficult childhood? I'm curious because I found it very difficult, I don't want to go into too much detail really but it was hard, as was adolescence. Consequently, from quite a young age my coping mechanism was to shut it out and escape into my own mind...
  6. Hello MBTI enthusiasts! I have questions about how environmental factors affect type

    Myers Briggs Forum
    For the most part I relate to INFP (or ENFP) as my type, but I've been wondering lately if it's a result of my childhood.

    I was raised by an ISTJ mother and an ISTP father. Obviously my NF ways were ridiculed and called irrational (no shit :dry:) Luckily I have an INFJ sister. We only started getting along when I hit high school though. It was very confusing to live in such a family now that I look back and I'm...
