  1. [INFP] Anyone else dislike superficial compliments?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    A man on an online dating site, English not a first language, gushed multiple times over me being charming and beautiful. The first time I was gracious and thanked him, but then I was completely turned off when he kept it up, especially because we had not met in person and to me it just seems a...
  2. [INFP] What are the most meaningful compliments people have given you?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    and why were they meaningful? Also: Is it more meaningful to you when people compliment who you are vs. what you do? Is there a difference in value when they pay the compliment directly to you, or when they tell someone else and it gets back to you? ----- OR do you flat out hate compliments...

  4. [ISFJ] Amazing things about ISFJ's - non-ISFJ's compliment thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Ok so I saw this idea on some of the other personality types forums and couldn't see one over here (sorry if there is already one). Basically the idea is that the non-ISFJ's of the forum say what they like about all the incredible and amazing ISFJ's!!! One of my very good friends is an ISFJ. I...
  5. [ISFP] Compliments; how do they make you feel?

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    When people compliment you how does it make you feel? Do you respond differently to compliments if they are from someone you do or don't know? I LOVE compliments but I try to hide it. Like when someone compliments me, I'm jumping up and down and smiling like a giddy school girl on the inside...

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers

  7. [Enneagram Type 1] Giving Compliments

    Type 1 Forum - The Reformer
    I suck at giving compliments. I get red in the face, feel incredibly nervous, and scared. I have many in my head, but I just can't seem to bring all of them out and realized why yesterday. It is because I am afraid it will come across as disingenuous and I will be "condemned" for it. I'm...
  8. [Enneagram Type 4] Verbal Affection: Yes, No, How?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Dearest Fours, I keep reading that your type loves compliments and verbal affection. I want to be able to give you this, but it's not a skill that comes naturally to me and it tends to make me feel awkward. I need your help. Is verbal affection, such as compliments and affirmations, important...
  9. [ENFP] Non-ENFPs, please say what you like about ENFPs

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I started a thread asking folks to post what annoys them about ENFPs, so -- of course! -- I wanted to balance that by asking members what you like about us. Yes, this is another thread idea borrowed from the ISTJ forum...
  10. [ENFP] ENFP's and "layers"

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Okay, I know I JUST POSTED THIS EXACT POST in a thread started here but I was just curious to know if you guys are like this. I had an "Aha!" moment today. I figured something out. I have "layers" kind of like the Earth's crust. Or an onion. Or a couch cushion. Or a flower... ANYWAY. xD The...
  11. [INFP] Compliments scary?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Often I don't say nice things to people because i'm afraid to. I hesitate to say a sincere compliment to friends, especially strangers. But when i think about it, in my head its bad for me even though I know it may not be that way. If it's a woman I fear she'll relate it to me trying to...
  12. [INFJ] One/ Best Compliment you've Received either today or this week

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As an INFJ- sometimes we can be tough on ourselves as can I think it's important remember that one good thing that was said, versus all the bad in that discussion or the 36 good jobs from your boss, instead of that one thing that could be improved. So come in pat yourself on the...
  13. [ENFP] ENFPs & "Fishing for compliments"

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    In the ENFP Personality Page, in the description of our Type, this stuck out at me: "More than one ENFP has been known to "go fishing" for compliments." Do you think this is true of us? The rest of the paragraph struck me as much more true. "The ENFP needs to be given positive assurance and...
  14. Ever feel overlooked like your not even there?

    Advice Center
    Maybe im a jealous person but I feel like nobody notices me, its like im not even there. I say jealous because other people get noticed more than I do, like, despite the best I try at making myself look more attractive, I never get compliments, okay, I get old men ogle me but it really hurts...
  15. [INFP] What is the best compliment you've ever received?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I know sometimes it's easy to forget the nice comments people say about you and only remember the bad ones. But every once in a blue moon you get a compliment from someone that really sticks in your mind and it makes you feel like you have accomplished something amazing! Whether it's about...
  16. Curiousity Wants To Know: How Do You Take Compliments?

    How do I take compliments? In all honesty, not too well. Compliments actually make me feel uncomfortable in the worst way imaginable. Especially when they're given face-to-face. I can hide my reaction to a compliment behind a computer screen or on the other side of the phone, but when I get...
  17. [ENTP] Giving (awkward) compliments

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I seem to have no mind mouth filter when I think of something nice to say- and as a result people are always telling me I give awkward compliments (I think your eyebrows go well with your face- among other things) does this happen to anyone else. Or is this just a weird personal trait :tongue...
