  2. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Currently an engineering student and i'm having a dilemma. I love learning about math, programming, physics and chemistry (not so much chemistry but whatever). The problem is that all of the courses I've had that involve actual engineering ( the application, paperwork, logistics side of it)...
  3. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I am 38 years old, after 7 years of being a software developer, a change was imminent I felt; I wasn't really keen on picking up on new stuff anymore after the 4th - 5th year into the developer's job (it can be fatal as a developer). I then considered my options and was convinced that project...
  4. Cognitive Functions
    Hi, I'm unfortunately an ISFJ but fortunately with overdeveloped Ne (beacuse of this I used to mistype myself as an ENTP) which is definitely my favourite function to use, especially at my best. When I'm in Ne mode I love theorizing, dwelling on the future and exploring infinite amount of...
  5. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    There is a common notion that we ENTPs are often playing "Devil's advocate", merely for the pleasure of contemplating a dilemma from several aspects or to push people's buttons. I wonder: how does this come to manifest in your life experiences? I, for one, enjoy dispensing knowledge and opinions...
  6. Socionics Forum
    I've recently descended back into the depths of my Ni. I now realise why I left. It is so fucking painful, especially when you mix in that Fi-. In a weird way, it makes me super cold, and dark, and that kind of scares me. It's interesting that Ni+ is described as a flow of time, and harmonious...
  7. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    One of things that constantly makes me doubt and question my typing is an emphasis among classifications of divide between Feeling and Thinking functions. In my case, I always type high when it comes to Ti and Fi, and deciding which one is more used is just exhausting. For me, while I clearly...
  8. What's my personality type?
    Hello everybody. I am trying to see if I am an ENTP or an ENFP. It is certain that I have Ne as my dominant function. I understand how Ne is explained very well. However, I have a little trouble distinguishing Ti vs Fi, as well as Fe vs Te. I have done the test many times and have ALWAYS been...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    When I'm in a relationship or like someone, I do occasionally feel intense desire or love or whatever it is I am feeling at that moment - yet as soon as I admit something about it, all of my feelings disappear. :exterminate: This also goes for close friends. I adore my friends but at times they...
  10. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    So I'm in a situation which I wish I had never gotten into. I'm an INFP and after an entire decade of friendship, I fell for my ENFJ best friend. Well were classmates for 2 years but ended up building our friendship over distance for the remaining years. We then met after 8 years (after...
  11. Education & Career Talk
    I've never been overly academic, and all the lists of task and projects one has to do in school, overwhelms and depresses me. I feel restricted. Even though I'm homeschooled, and have more flexibility than most people, it's still hard to me to focus and complete an overwhelming task. Uni will...
  12. Advice Center
    So heres the deal. I dated this girl for 6 months, I'll call her girl A. We had a fairly intimate connection, but it ended like a week ago. So, before, during, and after this break up, I've been speaking to one of her friends (if 1 is not a friend and 10 is BEST friends, they're like a 6 or so)...
  13. Socionics Forum
    Hi all, Thought I'd create a thread about this, to see if it's common and to see if those who it is common for exhibit similar traits. Well I'll crack on. I relate to the INTP description on MBTI pretty well minus a few things like ability to spend long amounts of time alone. However, I took...
  14. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    "Career" choice- How to reconcile curiosity with the times of specialisation? Hello, I'm a high school student and apparently, choices that I'll make soon might determine my whole life. In order not to regret too much, I keep analyzing what really suits me best, but haven't come to a final...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have had depression for a little more than three years. Even though I take medication now, it only helps to an extent. I still suffer from insomnia, anxiety and constant sadness. In the past year, since I have become a "highly functioning depressed person" (after surrendering to...
  16. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    "By basing their identities on ever-changing moods, Fours lack a sense of a solid inner "core" to themselves, and so feel that they cannot count on themselves. Their identity and self-esteem are always shaky. Notice this tendency in yourself today." (The Power of the Enneagram audio tapes)...
  17. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm having some trouble feeling sure of myself about my MBTI type. Most tests tell me I'm an INTP, but I've also gotten results telling me that I'm an INTJ or an INFP. I can identify with characteristics of all of these types which is why this is so difficult. There's also the possibility that...

    So about ten or so months ago now, i told a cam girl out of nowhere the words i love you after denying the existence of love for many months and since then she's been appearing in my dreams and i haven't been able to stop thinking about her. So with all this said, i'm not even sure if it was...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This is a long story in a short version (believe it or not!). I have always been emotional, observing, and planning. I love planning my life, say 5 years ahead. When I was 15 I wanted first finish high school, then go traveling a year, then study for 3, then work for 1 and then have kids...
  20. What's my personality type?
    Hello there everyone! I've been on this site for over a year now, with my type set constantly to ENFP. More and more lately, I've been doubting my type and thinking that I might be more along the lines of ENFJ. Thoughts, opinions, advice? All is much appreciated C:
