  1. [INTP] How to handle intense emotions towards your child?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This is a question to you INTP parents out there. To make it short: I have a 7 yr old daughter who really helps me get in touch with my feelings. No one else in the whole world makes me as angry and irritated as she does. She is all feeling and a very different being than I am. She goes from...
  2. Gleefully shredding journal entries ...again

    Blog
    I always end up tearing up old journal entries! I change a lot over the years, and if something of myself is going to survive for anyone to read, I'd rather it be something good and representative of my best state of mind. The things I tore up this time were things I had written concerning my...

    Sex and Relationships
    I'm young and single at 22 with a supportive family. I just graduated university, and I'm starting Year 1 of my career. I met a really great guy, and we click very well. We're a good match in so many ways. He's 5 years older than me, and he has two kids at and below age 6. The eldest is not...
  4. What Type Are Your Parents?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I find this to be an interesting experiment... What type are you? and... What type are your parents? I find this interesting very interesting because my parents are both SFJs and I find it ironic that with the way they think and bring up their children, they can still manage to raise 3 N(T...
  5. [INTJ] Did anyone else ever do this as a child?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    When I was really little I would always hide in things...like behind curtains or in cabinets. Even with the smallest cabinet in the kitchen I would try to move things around so I could squeeze in there and just hang out. I probably started this as a toddler and I remember still doing it around...
  6. What happens to a type when they are brought up in an opposing environment?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Basically what happens when a child of a certain type is brought up by people who dislike their type and discourage them from being the way they are? For example, what would happen to an NT brought up by NFs who continuously criticise them for not being emotional enough or for being cold...
  7. What do you want to name your children?

    Blog
    Or of course, you're favourite names. Although it may seem quite obsessive I have a list of 24 baby names, which I obviously won't use all of them but I love to think about my future. Boys: gray, Oakley, Kieron, alphie, zeke, wyatt, Joey, Harlow, braxton, shadow, xander, miro Girls: wintyr...

    Sex and Relationships
    For those that sleep around who don't respect people or themselves, and even those that do have class and your future children met someone like you and started dating someone like you, would you want your maybe child to date someone like you? Would you be happy with the way you treat other...
  9. [INFP] INFP as Camp Counselors

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey guys, I was just wondering if any INFPs on here that have had a job as a camp counselor? And if so, if you could tell me about what it was like? I really wanna do it for my summer holidays but I'm worried I'll be too much of a softie and the kids will walk right all over me. PS: any tips...
  10. What's my sister's type?

    What's my personality type?
    I know that a lot of you will despise me and all my future thoughts for this thread, but I am trying to guess my 3 y/o sister's MBTI type. So far, I came to the conclusion(via cognitive functions), that her iNtuition is dominant(or at least might be), because she easily understands new concepts...
  11. Why do children like me?

    General Psychology
    I've always noticed that young children automatically gravitate towards the person in the room that is paying the least attention to them. I've never liked children much, and don't pay much attention to them, but I will always be nice if they try to talk to me. However, they ALWAYS seem to want...
  12. 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...

  14. ADHD diagnosis (Ritalin/Adderall) eventually leading to the decision to home school

    Blog
    Is it or is it not a disorder, or do they just march to the beat of a different drum? This is something that I've questioned for quite some time. One of my children had many of the official ADHD symptoms. They were officially diagnosed with it when about 6 years old. I am pretty sure that I...
  15. Are you Good with Children (What Ages?) and/or Animals?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Certain people seem to be better with kids of different ages, or not good with kids at all. Also some are good with animals, but not people, or both animals and children. It kind of seems like Feelers tend to be more ‘kid people’ and Thinkers less so, but I’m curious about more specific...
  16. Dear 1st grade teacher, was humiliation the goal? Did the punishment fit the crime?

    Blog
    Like many I have my share of unpleasant grade school memories. Mostly due to students, but one of my worst memories stems from my first grade teacher. I don't remember much about most of my teacher's, but I will never forget her. Each day I eagerly anticipated the recess bell when we could get...
  17. Please don't make your children pick sides or treat them like your counselor!

    Blog
    Children are not equipped to be their parents counselors or psychiatrist, they lack the maturity needed to sort out and handle adult problems. Please let them be children, don't burden them with adult issues. They will have their own to deal with soon enough. Please don't make your children...

    Intro
    Hello All, Found out I was an INFP about a year ago. I couldn’t believe it and retook the test many times, each time it confirmed I was an INFP. Looking back, I’m not sure why I was dissapointed, but the test was spot on. I have developed a lot of adaptive strategies through the years that...
