criticism

  1. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Feel free to answer even if you're not an ENFP. Due to personal interest i put this in the ENFP subforum. What kind of criticism to you prefer? Polite? Strict? Straight up honest? As nice as possible? Basically what's the worst way to criticize you and what is the best? How do you react when...
  2. What's my Enneagram type?
    Hey guys, i've been typed as 1 since 2016, and it's astonishing that the main type hasn't changed since. But recently, some people here and on discord have suggested ideas such as this one that have caused me to doubt my classification. @Arrogantly Grateful (please offer any insights)...

  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I am hard working and good at work. My grades are literally the best possible. I am competent, trustworthy, always on time, independent, never slacking off. I outdo most trainees in this profession and due to this my instructor challenges me in a lot of ways and really wants to encourage me and...
  5. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hey guys! I've recently found myself in a weird situation (well, weird to me). I'm an INFP and I just got promoted to a management position at my job. I have no experience in management and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I've heard that you guys are naturally good managers so I was...
  6. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I have recently been talking with a good INTJ friend about self-improvement methods and techniques. This brought up a few past experiences of where my level of criticism in a debate/argument/discussion had gotten way out of control. INTPs as you know strive to spread clarity, understanding...
  7. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    ISFPs, help me here. Suppose you are in a job that requires you to do things in a certain way. You aren't necessarily aligned with that, but need to do what you are asked to do (because, that's how jobs work sometimes). You believe you are a great contributor, but some people around you are...
  8. Myers Briggs Forum
    Although MBTI can be very reliable and is seen by many as relevant in determining the characteristics of an individual in the form of a personality type or perhaps even a group of people in the form of a temperament, there are those who criticize it. It may seem questionable to start this thread...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    It's been a long while since I've posted. Hello all. Mainly curious about thoughts from INTPs and ENTJs I couldn't find a thread that touched on what I am specifically wondering about, so here it is; Please keep these things in mind: 1: Competence: I'm aware of how many INTPs loathe being...
  10. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Hi everyone, Since I've made very positive and intriguing experiences with bringing things I find challeninging to deal with in everyday life to this community, I have decided to do so with a problem I've been having with my mother. This may turn out to be kind of rambly since I feel quite...
  11. General Psychology
    OK bad title but I didn't know how to make it short. Here's the problem: I've always been one to question everything. Recently, I've become so interested to the point where I'd go on a forum for a game which I know very little about but have some preconceptions, and ask people why they play...
  12. Myers Briggs Forum
    Just wondering if there are any relations to sensitivity to (constructive) criticism between MBTI, and healthy/unhealthy types. Since, there has been occurrences I've noticed to make me question whether the T/F trait really influences that or not. I have an ENFJ friend who asks for critique on...
  13. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Recently I've been wondering whether I'm INFP or ENFP, but even more recently I've been wondering if I'm a Thinker because all of the personality descriptions I've come across for INFPs seem to say that we are sensitive and don't like criticism etc.. However I don't think I'm too sensitive -...

    There is no light in forcing revelations on people. They will learn on their own. So insults, anger, pushing these things in the presence of someone you are to love, only hurts them. Are you okay with this? Are you okay with inflicting before caring? Do you only see forcing revelations on...
  15. Intro
    Hi guys. I am new to this forum and I come here for help of the outside world. I have taken a personality test, and it stated I was an INFP. However, friends have told me I am an INTJ. I have asked them why they think that. They stated that it is easy for me to see from a different perspective...
  16. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    How do you think these concepts relate to you? Do people seem to think you have low self esteem because you question everything so much? Do you perceive this as actual low self esteem, or do you think it's something else? Do you think you're hard on yourself?
  17. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    So guys, how do you deal with critiques? I find that it's really hard to just accept it as help, because it feels like they are attacking me personally, even though I know in my brain they are only trying to help. It's getting worse, I think, because the last time my family brought up a...
  18. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hello all :) (Disclaimer: this is my first post on an MBTI forum, so please let me know if I'm doing/saying anything incorrectly, or if the post is too long-winded/self-indulgent. Thanks! ><) So I've finally decided to try my luck at the ENFP boards in the hopes that someone here might help...
  19. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I was wondering how many of us like healthy debate once in awhile. Not violent or arguing, just letting your different ideas bounce off one another. As long as it doesn't get violent I don't exactly mind it, but it kind of leaves a sour feeling after I'm done. I'm usually the instigator (I very...
  20. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Today, I realised something. You have the right to screw up. No one is allowed to violiate this right. No one, not even yourself. You must invoke your right to screw up. You don't have to be perfect, and neither does what you make or do. So don't force yourself to -- don't violate your own...
