  2. Tips for dealing with ex's/compassion/boundaries

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I'm afraid my big heart is detrimental when dealing with relationships. Does anyone have any ideas or tips for dealing with exes? I think at times I would be better off cutting people out of my life (or keeping them out of my life) but sometimes have an emotional pull to at least be open to...
  3. Addition to Notebook Entry 12 2016 - A Friend Feels the Same (I Answered)

    Blog
    That's it: Throughout my life, beginning particularly when I was on my own, thrown out on my own at 16, though even before that, I'd help an older person carry her groceries--she didn't have to ask; she was clearly struggling, and I did other things like that, and I still do like when Bailey...

  5. When someone is obviously mentally ill, why provoke and antagonize them? Why bully?

    Blog
    I will never understand why people seem to gang up on or feel compelled to antagonize those who are obviously struggling with mental disorders. What do you hope to accomplish by taunting them? It certainly doesn't help them when you do this? Can't you put aside your disdain long enough to try...

    Teach me how to let things go How to keep them from stewing, brewing Burning the belly pride within Tell me how to keep its teeth from gnawing Tearing, searing, biting, devouring Eating its hole through my skin Forcing me to repair once again Teach me how to rewind, remove, replace Save face...

  8. Which type is most likely to be a vegetarian?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    As the topic says: Which type do you think is most likely to be vegetarian? For the record, I am INFJ (and also E. type 1w9) and veggie. However I am NOT so extreme in my views as to force them on others. It just works for me:crazy: Interested in the type connection only folks, not in your...
  9. [Enneagram Type 2] Who are the active INFJ type 2's? I really want to meet some.

    Type 2 Forum - The Helper
    I'm an INFJ type 2w1 - the idealist humanitarian type. I thought that I was just some sort of strange and idealistic person. Perhaps one who is too obsessed with goodness and love to ever flourish in this world. Are there other lovers of mankind here?
  10. [INFJ] Trouble telling people, "no."/hurting people.

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I was just wondering if this is a problem for other INFJ's as well. It's more than just saying, "no," though. It's more fear of hurting or rejecting others. I'll give a few different examples... One scenario that's always been a tough one is when a guy makes advances towards.. more than I'd be...
  11. [INTJ] INTJs: Is empathy logical?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello INTJs! My question for you is: are compassion and empathy logical traits? I think they are, especially from an evolutionary viewpoint. Humans are a social species, and empathy allows us to relate to others, which allows us to form strong bonds with each other. When we bond with others...
  12. [INTJ] Empathy: Fi vs Fe?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I need to pass out in a few mins so I hope what I'm about to post make some sense. I feel like this will spark a good discussion/debate so I went ahead and start a new topic. The topic is this: Supposedly one main component of being a human being is possessing empathy. The first question for...
  13. Do Animals Have Morals?

    General Psychology
    1) Do you think that animals have the capacity to act morally? or 2) Do you have any personal experience with compassionate animals that are pets, in zoos, or even wild? Feel free to share your stories. TED speaker Frans de Waal lectures about the "Empathy, cooperation, fairness and...
  14. [ENTP] Difficulty talking to shy people, anyone?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Everything is in the title, I would like to be able to talk to the people who are shy and aren't able to support a conversation because of their emotional state. However, I find myself take on some of the same emotion through compassion and not running a conversation to a halt become very...

  16. To have so much love and feel like you still can't fall IN love...

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I know that typical reactions to statements like these have something to do with not having the right person come along or needing to be more open. But I am starting to feel like I will not fall in love. I'm so concerned with being at peace with the soul, loving thy neighborhood, and having a...
  17. Ouch, My “F”ing Heart

    Blog
    One of the best things about being an F is how tender-hearted we are. And one of the hardest things about being an F is how tender-hearted we are! Like all F’s I seek harmony. And when one of my co-workers or loved ones is in a bad mood it’s really difficult not take it personally. My...
