  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Heya, I'm not an INFP but I need to ask you all a question and couldn't find a thread for that. Do you guys not like questions, and that's why there's no thread?:laughing: (That's my first question I guess.) But here's the real deal: I'm an ISFJ, mom's an INFP. It seems like whenever I try to...
  2. Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    If yes, does that mean you’re not a 9. If no, do you think this is because you don’t like confrontation or do you think this is because you handle conflict in Avery diplomatic approach?
  3. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Over the past one year, on several occasions, I have found myself unable to confront close friends even when a confrontation was required. This comes out of a fear - a fear of losing control if I let my anger out, saying too much too intensely, and hurting people to an extent that they decide to...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm an INFJ, and I work as a supervisor for the student workers in a college library. It's a small college and a small group of employees (about 10, depending on the semester). I am also responsible for hiring students, so I get a good chance to evaluate them before they start working for me...
  5. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    I have a friend who I'm PRETTY sure is an ENFJ (I'm not 100% sure, to be honest. He doesn't care very much about MBTI or put any thought into it, so he can't really help me figure it out, and there are times he seems like an S type to me, but ENFJ is my best working theory at the moment) He...
  6. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi everyone, I have a roommate dilemma. A new girl recently (in the middle of January) replaced my old roommate and has been causing a lot of problems, but I'm not sure how to handle them. I find that I can't stand up for myself without a great deal of anxiety. I don't want to hurt her feelings...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm extremely confrontation shy but put a lot of importance on honesty too. My ESFP sister has blunt honesty down to an art but I can never seem to be blunt without sounding mean or worrying about hurting someone's feelings. This leads to me often formulating what I want to say in a diplomatic...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I am an INFJ that is possibly up for a promotion. I left a department a little over a year ago and now they want me to come back to it to clean up the mess that it has become. I know how things need to be done over there and I am mature and hard working. Trouble is the people who are currently...
  9. Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    I find this is an area I struggle with. Whilst most of the time I'm happy to go with the flow and that I just don't mind. I can find it difficult to push my point of view. Some people, especially with my parents, don't want to listen. And if I push a view or opinion it will cause upset. I find...
  10. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    So here's the issue - I've got an ISFJ friend who I think is absolutely fabulous however (surprise, surprise) miscommunications between us are commonplace. Recently, we had a couple of conflicts over text - last time, she said something that I thought was hurtful and she said she hadn't...
  11. Intro
    So I'm a female INFJ. I've been dating an ENFJ for over two years, so I know a good bit about how INFJ/ENFJ relationships work. Also, apparently INFJs have a strong depressive tendency. Can anyone confirm this? I struggle with serious depression and would love any insight on how INFJs can...
  12. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello Please give me some advice? Okay so my partner (ESTJ) and I(INFP) have been together for 4 years. She has a niece whom I can't identify (she is 15 and maladjusted). Her niece has always stayed the weekends and such. Well recently she has had more problems at home and has stayed over more...
  13. ESFP Forum - The Performers
    HELP HELP HELP! I desperately need help dealing with a manipulative ESFP in my life. To start off: I am an ENTJ and he is an ESFP. I'm not sure how to handle the situation because I haven't figured out ESFP's yet :( I'd love the point of view of an ESFP! His motto seems to be, "I don't trust I...
  14. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Not a particularly nice thing to do, I realise... I'll give you the back story, this lady (I'd never met) went on a date with, lets call him chris, he asked her out afterwards and she said no. A month later I went on a date with him having been his friend for a few years, a date that turned...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists

  16. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hey guys, I've recently been thinking about the issue of confrontation. I live with an INFJ and an ENFJ - they are awesome and the best housemates I've ever had. We connect on a bunch of levels and have great conversations, I never get bored of them and we're all pretty relaxed and easy...

    Confrontation is not my thing. However, I will do it if I know I have to. I'll speak up if someone I care about is screwing up. It takes a lot to get me to speak up if someone is screwing me over, though. Well, I have been dealing with an apathetic drummer. He takes almost two days to respond...
