  1. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Greetings my fellow Type 5's (and fellow lurkers). Let's get right to it.. How are you Type 5's coping with COVID-19? Has this unknown variable affected or bothered you at all? Has it caused you any stress ? Has it changed your state of Mind? Are the Surviving or Thriving in Lockdown ...
  2. Blog
    ADDITION: A few photos, up to four (maximum allowed) I couldn't add to another entry. Only thing on the Meditation/Yoga Room Walls - I call it "Empty Pockets." Seiza meditation position; this is how I sit; the only difference is the zafu I use. One closet in the Meditation/Yoga...
  3. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hey guys. Lately I've been dealing with a bout of depression, and I'm wondering what other ENFPs have done when they face these issues. A little about my situation... I separated from my husband (a INxJ that I'd been married to for 15 years) about 5 months ago, and three months into the...
  4. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I had a verbally abusive father growing up. He would get frustrated with circumstances (money and providing for his family, dealing with normal life struggles), and then get angry. He could yell at my mom for not writing down something in the checkbook (in the days ways before cell phones), he...
  5. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I would love to be someone who just bulldozes on through their workday/ school day whenever I have a cold or some minor illness, but I just don't *want* to. It's not that I'm wimpy, I'm just lazy. ... . . . And when I'm seriously sick with a flu, or sinusitis (I've had that once), or strep...
  6. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I am a 15 Y/O INTJ(-T), and I have an ESFP(-A) mother who drives me crazy. We contradict each other on everything, she has no sense of logic and is frustrating to the point where I can no longer stand it. I know I am right, but being my mother she has control over me and there isn't much I can...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey guys, I was just wondering how other INFJ's healthily cope with emotional pain? Such as unrequited love, break ups, betrayal... I don't know about others, but my current method of dealing with issues like these is not ideal (self destructive, door slamming, bottling things). xx
  8. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I have been wondering, since my ENFP friend has suffered varying degrees of depression a while, but still somehow manages to dream and hope big, is that common ENFP trait or is there somewhere ENFP who is miserable and in full surrender at the throes of depression? Did anyone of you guys ever...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey guys. I've recently gone through a bad patch with a girl I'd liked for a very long time (5 years) and I find myself slipping into a familiar unhealthy state of mind. On the few occasions I've been heavily invested in someone and they didn't reciprocate, my initial reaction is an implosion...
  10. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    There's a song out there for pretty much everyone (even strong-willed INTJs) that has helped them cope with stress and emotional difficulty. I'm sincerely interested to know: What is yours? The song that has not failed to make me cry... that has helped me through a number of difficulties in...
  11. Blog
    I can tell you that I've been through a pretty bad year. This is the year that things fell apart, and despite the fact that yes, there have been people who have stood for me, I have lost plenty of friends and lovers to distance and rejection. There are two ways I've responded badly to this. 1...
  12. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hi there again! I had someone in my life, who I think wanted to use me, and I had a pretty bad experience with her. The last time she called me, I was so angry, I shouted at her that I didn't care about her f*ing life. After that I felt so bad, I wanted to call/write her to explain why I was so...
  13. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I recently realized that as a Feeler I do not exercise my feelings nearly as much as I'd like to. It's not that I'm not being myself, it's just that I'm controlling myself. And while I've found that to be helpful in many situations, I do feel like a piece of me is missing because I'm not being...
  14. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    okay, well I am back after soul searching because i tested once as INFJ, which turns out is only when i answer questions based on what I think I should think feel or do...wheareas INFP is the reality I realized I had been trying to learn to be someone else (INFJ) because I kept getting taken...
  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone! I am an INFJ with a Type 1 Enneagram. This thread if for INFJ - Type 1 people to share about their significant life experiences, struggles and coping mechanisms. Life for us can be stressful sometimes. Other types and enneagrams are also welcome comment. Cheers!
  16. Sex and Relationships
    Warning: Somewhat long! Help is appreciated! 3 years of being together. It ended in a "mutual" breakup. The scare quotes are because we both agreed our relationship itself was not working (busy, stressors, external contributing factors) despite the love we felt for each other. I initiated the...
  17. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    All my life, for as long as I can remember, I've been a maladaptive daydreamer. I used to do it out of boredom, but recently I've been using it as a form of escape. Create a better world in my head to distract myself from everything else. I don't have a particularly horrible life, it's nothing...
  18. Type 7 Forum - The Enthusiast
    I wanted to see how different types react upon discovering their types and what their weaknesses and strengths are. Did your perception of yourself and others change? Did your way of thinking change? How did you manage the information, was it difficult to deal with or was it a relief to...
