  2. [INFP] Your first transcendental experience

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    What was your first transcendental experience that you remember? I was in the second grade and I remember standing in front of the fence and staring at it. I could not believe it but my eyes were spontaneously going in and out of focus so that the chain links of the fence were forming...
  3. [ENTP] How Difficult Were You As A Kid To Raise (ENTP) and What is your Birth Order.

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    My Father often said that out of all his 5 children, I was the most difficult to raise. I seemed to test his patience most (and Mom agreed with him too). I'm also the youngest and only girl. I'd often do things that were considered risky (like hanging upside down from a neighbors porch...
  4. [INTP] Fe to Ti or just Si projections? Do INTP's switch?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I was just reflecting on my past and psychoanalyzing myself as I often do (I have read that this is common with Si+Ti), and I realized that up until a precise point in my life, I may have been more feeling/emotional than thinking. I've always clearly fit the INTP mold and my childhood was...
  5. [Enneagram Type 3] What were you like as a child?

    Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    I've seen a few threads around on the other forums and thought it would be interesting to see how all of you behaved as a child. When I was a child, I was very much different than I am. I was overly emotional, in stark contrast to my almost lack of emotional expression now. I would cry easily...
  6. [ENFP] Favourite childhood book?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    What book was your absolute favourite when you were a child?
  7. [INTJ] Childhood?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I've been getting questions about 'my' (or an INTJ's in general) childhood. I find I was always a little socially awkward, testing people's reactions and my own theories and ideas aggressively to gather information to feed my intuition. I would be skeptical of authorities, and if they seemed...
  8. [ENTJ] Does this sound normal for an ENTJ Kid?

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    My husband and I have been MBTI enthusiasts for a number of years; he prefers INFP and I, INTP. We think our five-year-old son is an ENTJ, in addition to being very bright. He loves strategy games like Risk and Axis and Allies. His stated purpose from a young age has been to be in charge. He...
  9. Childhood Wishes

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    So here's my childhood wishlist: - to be Thumbelina's size & live in a dollhouse/be a borrower - be president of Nigeria - an older twin brother - superpowers (couldn't pick just one so I decided on the power of imagination so I could have them all) - to cure cancer - a pet tiger - have...

  11. [Enneagram Type 7] Parent/Child Relationship Likely to Produce a E-type 7

    Type 7 Forum - The Enthusiast
    So I stumbled across this looking for info on the differences between w6 and w8. The description fit pretty well for me, and I'm curious how much others relate to it as well. I also read the one for a 4, and it seemed pretty accurate for my mom (since I know all about her childhood, I think I...
  12. I loss and found myself in the night

    Unfortunately the piece I wrote this to won't be heard due to youtube policies blocking it so I settled with this one :sad: I loss my self in the night… thoughts of disappearing from a life which is not my own, I want to live and be as I was born, but at every turn there is a reminder of...
  13. [INFP] Childhood thoughts?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Do you remember having any deep thoughts when you were a kid? I remember, when I was a kid, I'd wonder whether other people really had souls, if this world was real, how the world came to be, when time really began, etc etc. I eventually tried not thinking about questions like these, because it...
  14. [INFP] INFP Strange and Interesting Dreams

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    INFP Dreams - Had any Interesting Ones? Hello there... All of my life I've had very strange, interesting, and colorful dreams. Some of them I've remembered since childhood...some go away as soon as I wake up. I would love to hear about other INFP's strange and interesting dreams and if...
  15. [INFP] INFP Childhood Confession Forum

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So i've had this theory for quite some time that people like us tend to have bad childhoods. i have my own theories why and how this effects the way we are today but i'd like to hear if this theory is true. so! i suppose I'll be the one to start things off! My mother met my father when she was...
  16. [ENTP] Difficult childhood/adolescence?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Did you have a rough childhood? I certainly did (my mother was a schizophrenic). Just wondering if there is a pattern here I wouldn’t say my childhood was horrible. Being an optimist, I can recognize how lucky I was in some twisted way
  17. Over the Years

    It seems to be my impression, though I could be wrong on this, that a good number of people really change a lot from who they were as children to who they are as adults. I know they say you can't change your personality type, but I'm not talking about that so much as tastes, oppinions, values...
  18. One day it will all end, so better live life just in case :)

    some of this was from a old writing I did 3 years ago. I figured it was like a seed to something more, if I could add more and revise what was already there. So I did. Play the music while you read it, Enjoy :proud: One day when the moon was new, while sitting upon the hood of my car, a...
  19. [INFJ] Did you write stories as a kid?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have boxes and boxes of "books" and "novels" and "coloring/activity books" that I made as a kid. Apparently, I did this, all the time. JESUS, I don't think I did anything else as a child, by the looks of it. I just found an old story that I wrote when I was like 7 about a magical...
  20. [INFJ] Shame on you, shame on me!!!

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I found this list aobut shame and some INFJ traits resonated in my mind. What do you think about this?? Do you relate to some, even to a slight degree? Characteristics of Adults Shamed in Childhood They are afraid of vulnerability and fear exposure of self. They may suffer extreme shyness...
