  1. Dr. Seuss

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Silly as it may be for an adult to be quoting from Dr. Seuss, I want to share the last few lines -- the moral -- of my two favorite Seuss stories. They illustrate two principles that are important for me -- human equality and environmental responsibility. Sneetches ...I'm quite happy to say...
  2. Nurturing the Nature (or not)?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I believe Nature and Nurture, as they're often called, work together in forming who we are as individuals. I'd venture to guess that most people grow up with parents of a different personality type from their own, so their nurture will have had a much different flavor than their inner nature...
  3. Self-defeating tendencies

    General Psychology
    I have a problem. I already knew this, but what I'm still working on is figuring out exactly what that is and how to stop it.

  5. [INFP] Write a letter to your childhood self!

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This is something that I found on a livejournal INFP community a few years ago and for some reason, my mind went to it today. The exercise is rather simple, choose an age and write a letter to yourself at that age. I've done two such letters, and honestly, it's quite interesting to see what it...
  6. [INFJ] INFJ Funny/Weird Childhood Memories

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Being nostalgic by nature, I often look back on my childhood and find certain moments which I find funny now; moments that were sort of.. just off on a different plane than my peers, I think. In elementary, I always sensed my mind worked in a different way than others and I was insecure about...
  7. [INFP] Attachment to Childhood

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Do any other INFPs feel a strong attachment to their childhood and their childhood memories? I guess this would basically be my Si mixing with my Fi.
