  1. INTJ + Depression/Anxiety

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Well hello world! As part of my self-care vacation, I am starting a lovely journal project that is completely open to comments and feedback. Here's a smidge... Myself in bullet-list form: Slightly quirky 33 year old female INTJ Master's Degree in Communications, Minor in Japanese Not married...
  2. ---

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    I'm not really good at writing a post like how anyone does in this site, and English isn't my first language. I just wanted to know about ways on how to deal with depression at the point where I have no one to talk to (especially family including parents) and I tend to appear more "Introverted"...
  3. I'm 38 years old this year, and I still don't know what to do, and whether I should continue to live, or just die?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Long story short, my life is a complete failure. It’s full of wrong decisions, (in)actions, regrets, mistakes after mistakes, that I honestly think maybe it’s already too late to “fix everything” (eg: I’m losing all the good chances/opportunities, as I’m getting old now). It’s really ironic &...
  4. Is this what depression feels like?

    Advice Center
    So, as little as a year ago, I was a really optimistic and happy person. But for the past year (after a lot of traumatic stuff happened at once), I've completely flipped. I've started not wanting to do anything, and everything just feels meaningless. When I think about the future, I can't even...
  5. [Enneagram Type 9] How to deal with an unhealthy 9w1?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    Hi people, as per the title I’m having a hard time with my 9w1 boyfriend (I typed him, but I’m 99% sure it’s the right fit). We’ve been in a relationship for more than 4 years but I still don’t really know how to deal with his depressive states because he just. Won’t. Speak! I am a 4w3 and...
  6. [ESFJ] What do you do when....there are no friends? How to be alone?

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    So I am in a rather unique situation. Basically, I live overseas at the moment. I used to have a lot of friends who were all travelers, like me. Well, they've all gone back to their home countries. Last year I did my best to make some new friends, and I discovered that, sadly, you cannot force a...
  7. Going to see a therapist for the first time ever. Kinda scared.

    General Psychology
    I've suffered from anxiety and depression for most if not all of my adult life. I always remember saying I wanted to see a therapist, hell I even have it written down in one of my old diaries from highschool. I don't know why I never bothered doing it. I was never well off, so I think I just...
  8. Hi. Newbie introduces herself or something.

    Intro
    Hello marshmellows. I'm pretty overwhelmed by this introduction thingy, but I guess it's the best way to get in touch with like-minded people? I've been searching the internet for stuff all around INFPs and so I came across forums. And this was the one I found the most interesting. I have to say...
  9. [ENFP] An INTJ Conundrum

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    My best friend forgot my birthday this past Monday and I was upset and called him out on it. To make this short we had an argument (about that and other things) and I said maybe we should talk less for a while which he didn’t respond to. I messaged him the other day to fix our miscommunication...
  10. Artist’s Dismal Dilemma

    The Art Museum
    I want to warn you that my posting may be melancholic to some, but sometimes this is how I feel. I am what I don't want to be, which is an artist, I used to work but tired out quickly, faltering in the normal lines of work. I became a painter shortly after developing my unique skill of painting...
  11. ENTP ego while depressed

    Advice Center
    Can ego be good for depression if you are a massive procrastinor, have not much of a life? I am having an atypical depression, where I swing back and forth from bad moods to good moods and vice versa. I had a pretty bad period recently where I was totally socially isolated, did nothing but...
  12. Severe isolation and loneliness - INFP

    Intro
    Hey, everyone! So this is my first time joining as a member, although I've actually been following the forum for over 8 years now, more or less around the time I was typed as an INFP. This community has actually been my saving grace through many rough patches, helping me realise I'm not alone...
  13. INTP - On Loneliness, a plea for help.

    Blog
    Dear reader: I am an INTP. A lonely one. Loneliness has followed me for years, haunting me silently and for some reason I cannot escape from her. She is my stone maiden, jealously guarding me from the peace and lasting happiness I so crave. Loneliness comes in many forms, but its worst...
  14. How susceptible is Enneagram to mood?

    What's my personality type?
    I test reliably as an INTP, the I and P are the more flexible scores. I am definitely an NT. With respect to the Enneagram, the stacking is accurate but the Typing is highly inconsistent. I assume I am a 5w4, I also test as 9w1... and frequently a 6...and a 2... there are certainly times I...
  15. [INFJ] When People Act Like They are Allergic to Vulnerability

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm mostly venting about this. I can't pin down if these people are sensors, sensing feelers, people who are too young, or maybe people who have encountered only mild life struggles. It's probably a combination. I recently shared in a small group setting (think church stuff) that I struggled a...
  16. I'm an ENFP Dating and Living with a Depressed INFP -Any Advice?

    Sex and Relationships
    Hello out there. My sweetie is pretty depressed and has been working for his family and sorting through his past things because there is no longer room to store them there. He is 29, feels like a complete failure and spending time near his family, I think, is making it worse. Partially...

    Hello, fellow NFs. My sweetie is pretty depressed and has been working for his family and sorting through his past things because there is no longer room to store them there. He is 27, feels like a complete failure and spending time near his family, I think, is making it worse. Partially...
  18. How does mental illness affect your type? *trigger warning*

    What's my personality type?
    When I was younger I always seemed to type as an ENFP, and I did not really agree with that because I don`t like being around people much and seem to need a huge amount of alone time. I now keep testing as an INFJ or INFP. So....here is some background on my question. I have severe, chronic...
  19. Why does happiness seem so illusive?

    General Psychology
    Why does happiness seem so illusive? I was asked one day by an advisor, "are you happy?" Happy? I thought, that's never been an equation in my life. I didn't think it was necessary for life, but I'm starting to wonder. I don't consider myself a "happy" person. Don't get me wrong, I've had...
  20. Midtwenties dealing with Strict Parents affecting my life.

    Advice Center
    Hi, quick description. I am between a INFJ and ISFJ. My ennegram is #6,2,4. Recent graduate, on job hunt, but inevitably feeling helpless of my circumstances. My goal in life is to be mentally, emotionally, financially independent. I have the ill-feeling in my stomach that I can't take it...
