  1. DOPE test - Communication Style - Dove, Peacock, Owl, Eagle

    Other Personality Theories
    I was recently given the DOPE test and found that my result reflected so much about my type that I previously needed answered. The test measures your communication style and I think it is used for the purposes of team building. I am an INFJ and and it seems to be commonly accepted that since...
  2. [INFP] Relationship advice for INFP's in need!

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So, just starting this. I have a major problem. I fell out of love with my boyfriend and I don't know what to do. It's not like anything was wrong. I just... don't feel it anymore. And I feel so bad. I fell for him really fast, and my heart fluttered for everything he did, but... omg I feel...
  3. [INFP] How to Reassure/ Build Trust with an INFP Partner???

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi everyone! I recently started dating an INFP male and was hoping to get some advice on how to build trust with him and reassure him when he worries about our relationship. Ironically, I am also an INFP male, and understand where he is coming from, but I'm not sure exactly how to quell his...
  4. How to you avoid and navigate challenging post responses?

    Advice Center
    Hey, all. I wanted to hear what you do to avoid and navigate challenging post responses. I am new (as you can see), and I also made a post in haste a bit ago and I didn't put enough thought into how it might be perceived. I was completely misunderstood by some. I felt attacked, but was able...
  5. [ENFP] Thoughts On Texting?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I wonder what you other ENFPs think of texting? Does it increase your sense of connectiveness? You can shoot quick messages to friends (or if like me, send the same text to a group) in an efficient way? Or perhaps do you see texting as a curse that robs us of voice or in-person communication...
  6. [INFJ] Do Emojis Scare Or Exhaust?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Just a random thought I had this morning and figured I'd ask the INFJ crew. I'm not just talking a romantic level, but on any level, do you find if someone is texting you and uses a lot of emojis or expressive/excitable language (lots of exclamation points for example) is it off-putting or...
  7. [ENFP] ENFPs and Small-talk

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I was under the impression ENFPs can talk for hours and never tire, but after seeing this post on Pinterest, it made me question my previous understanding: So could it be true? Do ENFPs loathe small-talk?
  8. [ISFJ] ISFJ ENFP communication

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hi dear Members, especially ISFJs I'm a newbie, both at the Cafe and mbti. It has been a couple of weeks I learned about the 16 personalities and eversince have thrown myself into the subject. After a 5 year long relationship with my dear ISFJ there is still a lot to learn and the pieces are...
  9. [ENFP] Heartbroken INFJ

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Dear wonderful ENFPs, I was so lucky/unlucky to fall for one of you against my better judgement. What a great connection and ease of communication, honesty, trust, understanding and free flow of jokes. We live far apart and he is in a relationship for the last few months. I would never want to...

  11. Can you guess someone's type just by observing the way they speak ?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Is there a way to type people through observation by the way they communicate ?
  12. [INFJ] Verbal or Written Communication?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I am close with four INFJs (gasp, I know I can't believe I'm lucky enough to have found four of the rarest unicorns in just the few years I've been alive), and there's a pattern I've begun to notice among them. Of the four, two of them are significantly better at verbal communication than...
  13. [INFP] Most Uncomfortable Experience You've Had?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Whether its hypothetical or based on true experiences, INFPs please share. Want to know more about what can provoke INFP into feeling uncomfortable and maybe laying on feelings of stress. Right now, I'm in a situation where I'm being assessed on my ability to participate in group discussion of...
  14. ENFJ - INTJ Communications

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Question, I'm an INTJ living with a healthy INFJ-a (we get along great) and an unhealthy ENFJ-t, possible ESFJ. My ENFJ roommate is usually emotionally distant, overly talkative (in my mind anyway) and gives off a kind of 'fake' persona of cheerfulness. She always wants to give advice on what...
  15. [Enneagram Type 4] A History of (Passive-Aggressive) Violence

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Below is a long tale of my legnthy journey coming to terms with my type 4 unhealthy responses to both healthy and unhealthy type 9-leadership. I was recently introduced to the Enneagram and have been exploding with insights, many of them perhaps pure bullshit! I don't expect any of you will make...
  16. Jumping A Step Ahead When Communicating- More Te or Ti?

    Cognitive Functions
    If this is a hard concept to understand, I'll try and explain it better: Basically when you're talking to someone and you're trying to explain something and basically when you explain you've got the idea in your head already, so when it comes out, the explanation is vague and indirectly answers...

    Advice Center
    Hello everybody, I read the forum sometimes but this is my first post. I'm a 24 years old, INFP, and as long as I can remember, I always had difficulties with communication, no matter who I am talking to, it's always there. Well, it's never been a problem because I never had too many...
  18. [ESTJ] Communication between ESTJ and INFJ

    ESTJ Forum - The Guardians
    Hello ESTJs! I'm an INFJ about to embark on a pre-service teaching experience. My mentor is an ESTJ. Often my mentors have been ESTx and I have found it extremely difficult to connect and be on the same wave length. I really want to though. Overall, she's very nice and I can sense she feels the...
  19. Do you talk to your Parents about sex or relationships?

    Sex and Relationships
    I once over heard my father say "she is 18 now, i don't care what she does", to someone who asked him if i was single. That is the only clue i have of what his expectations are. How did it work in your household? How do you feel about it?
  20. [ISTJ] Help me understand ISTJ sister in law!! Please!

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    I posted this as a reply to a different thread, but figured I'd start this thread to help get more input. My sister in law is an ISTJ, I am an ENFP. I'd really like to improve our relationship and be able to understand her better, but more often than not, I am at a loss. She and my brother...
