  5. [INFJ] INFJ Seeks Friendship Advice

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So, my best friend is a self-proclaimed INTJ, although I feel she is more of an E sometimes. I have recently felt like being her friend has become a competition, which is very difficult for me considering other 'competitors' are outgoing E types who have no problem making conversation and...
  6. Same-type 1-on-1 battles! What do the different types compete over?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    What I'm wondering is if all personality types have something they compete over when you pit two of them together, and if so what do they compete over? The strongest wins, assuming all types even do this? For example INTJ vs INTJ is always a duel over who's the smartest or most knowledgeable...

  9. III. A Grand New Type Job

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I have invested a bunch of time lately into researching Enneagram, but I haven't been doing it for a long period of time. I am typed as 8w7, I want to be 8w7, and others online seem to lean towards 8w7. This makes me doubt that 8w7 is correct; it seems too convenient, and it has problems...

  13. [INTP] "Your A** Is Mine"

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    "Your ass is mine." Talking about the look on an ESTP's face when they've honed in on a target they're going after and they think it's going to land. It occurred to me that I love seeing this on someone's face, it's game on. Even if the target is met, and it's not in my favor, I'll be coming...

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello all. First post here! So I want to know some of your thoughts about competition in general. I find myself, as an INFP, seeking to find harmony. Therefore I am really not driven to compete at all, whether this could be through sports, board/card games/ or everyday verbal debate. This lack...
  15. [INFP] How do you do in competitions?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'd like to know how INFPs usually do in competitions, because this kind of thing either breaks my heart (by winning, usually because a friend is in the competition too but didn't win) or feel inferior and empty (by losing, and seeing how people doesn't care much about it). Am I taking this too...
