  1. Did you come here broken?

    General Psychology
    I am using "broken" as an umbrella term here for psychological problems, existential crisis, depression or other mental health issues (basically whatever you want to class as broken) "I ask this because I notice new members usually begin their journey on PerC making threads that hint towards...
  2. Responding to suicide (how??)

    General Psychology
    Obviously a sensitive topic, don't read on if you don't like it. Unfortunately people in our society can have terrible lives and mental states (and more) that can lead them to take their own lives. I'm young, so to more socially experienced people out there: How are you supposed to react as...
  3. [INFP] Navigating Fe Friendships

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've had two Fe strong friends in my inner circle this year (ESFJ didn't pan out for a good friendship, ENFJ is the topic of this one), and having some guidance on how to grow with them as a Fi user would be ...really great. Really concerned for my ENFJ friend after a long conversation we had...
  4. [INFJ] Anyone Else Experience This Weird, Sentimental Feeling?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Okay, this is going to be a little tricky. I want to explain a very specific feeling that I have at times and cherish very much. Some similar feelings I would relate it to would be: *Nostalgia *Warmth *Tranquility *Bliss *Coziness If I had to call it anything, it would be "a peaceful...
  5. Elizabeth - October 28, 2016

    Blog
    For those who didn't see where I wrote about her, she was someone I loved; someone that my husband, I, and others mentored; she was considered, and considered herself "retarded", and had other ideas about herself as unworthy of love. A serial killer murdered her and another woman...
  6. [INFJ] Help meeeee; I joined an infj fb page and it was one of my worst ideas ever

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Quick question: Do you care a lot about being understood? So I'm new here. Heck, this sounds petty. I'm not sure this post will even be seen and I certainly hope joining this page will not be as bad of an idea as joining that group. I guess I need someone to rant to, someone who can conversate...
  7. [INFP] How do you get over feelings of alienation?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Right now there are many parts of my identity that just don't fit me into my environment at all and it's straining my social life. Personally, I don't feel comfortable or even safe changing myself to fit in right now. I bet every INFP has thought to themselves at one point in their lives "I'm...
  8. [INFP] Hug Substitute Thread

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    There are days where all you really need is a good hug, but there's no one there to oblige. So then I'd like to know what you turn to for comfort instead What makes you feel hugged? (I can feel the other temperaments judging me right now..) Personally I like to have things read to me. A deep...
  9. [Enneagram Type 4] Self-preservation Sybtype ... Confused.

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Self-preservation Subtype ... Confused. Another thread here got me thinking. When I first learned about the instinctual variants, I immediately thought I'd fall into the self-preservation category. I'm intensely aware of my environment, and go out of my way to adjust it to better suit me and...
  10. [INFP] So Very Unqualified

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Just recently, my Best Friend learned that she has become diabetic... tonight was her very first time having to take an Insulin shot. She was so torn up about it, so devastated... she and I were on the phone just now, and I truly had *No idea* what to say to comfort her. I mean.... I did say...
  11. [INTJ] What should you do when an INTJ talks about their problems to you?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    An INTJ talked to me (online) about some stuff he was going through, pretty much just informing me about the things he was experiencing and then expressed desire to achieve certain things (nothing I had power over). I wasn't really sure what he wanted me to do, or what I could do to provide...
  12. How to comfort the different mbti types?

    Cognitive Functions
    So I was going to post this on the ENTJ forum but I thought it would be better to get all the different types. I'm pretty lost when it comes to comforting people. I automatically awww and ask them if they want to talk about their feelings. The response i usually get from my entj friend is a...
  13. [INFJ] Do INFJ's Just HATE Attempts to Comfort Them?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Is it just me or does my INFJ friend just seem so freaking moody. Literally no one else I've ever known made me ask myself the mentla question "okay, should I ask if everything's okay?" With her there's this fear of saying the exact wrong thing and getting lashed out at, or made to feel really...
  14. Ode to My Bed!

    Blog
    Ode to My Bed I run my hand over your soft pillows Oh, How I desire thee. Open your sheets and let me slip between. Your warmth shrouds me. I lay my head upon your pillow. I succumb to sleep Tomorrow I shall leave you, But only for a time Then I will once again find Tranquility in...
  15. Ray Comfort

    Guess the type
    dananananananana dananananananana... Banana Man! So yeah... we're typing Ray. I'm going with ENFJ or ESFJ. His Thinking is weak, most likely Inferior; he doesn't base his views around logic, and any attempts made to construct a logical argument come across as clumsy and...
  16. [ESFP] Comforting an ESFP

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    Hullo there ESFPs So today I kind of had a, well, talk with an ESFP friend. It started out light but got deeper and ended up with her crying. Basically, I was trying to help and see if she was able to improve on something she didn't think she could improve on. No it wasn't a...
  17. [INFP] Difficulties knowing how to comfort people, anyone?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Let me start by telling you the background story that really made me think of this. Today we got back our mid-year results, and my friend (I think she's an ESFJ) did pretty badly. We already knew our exam scores before that, but I suppose seeing all the grades all on one piece of paper just...
  18. My ISTP is stupid...

    Myers Briggs Forum
    He doesn't understand the concept of warmth or comfort. Whenever I ask for it, even plead, he just responds with criticism and an angry tone. He tells me he's been under a lot of stress lately, what with his sister being kicked out of her apartment because her boyfriend's in prison and moving...
  19. The Importance of Being Comfortable - TvsF?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Soft Fluffy Cozy Squishy Comfy Cushy Snuggly Fuzzy Furry Cuddly... Do these words make you feel slightly annoyed? Or slightly happy? In my experience it seems like Ts have a slightly negative association with the word comfortable/comfort (and similar words) as though it has to do with being...
  20. [Enneagram Type 9] Help, My 9 Friend is anorexic!

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    My friend is a type 9 and I just found out that she's struggling with anorexia. Until now I actually thought she was a very healthy 9, she got a scholarship and then also raised 2000$ for cancer on her own. She's probably going to be hospitalized soon but I know that when she gets out of the...
