  1. [INFJ] Familiarity with INFJ

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    How do I know that INFJ has fallen in love? Please for help :unsure: We are friends every day we talk to each other, lately we often argue about insignificant things.
  2. Trying to settle things down with the MBTI (a bit of a rant)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    A bit of context. I tried many times to understand the MBTI and I was going to abandon once and for all. But it would have been one of those many times where if I don't recognize myself in a paradigm (a way to see things, a sacrality) I just can't understand it. And guess what, it's still the...
  3. [INFP] romanticising sadness, over-narrativising myself - any INFPs experience this?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    i've already posted an almost entirely similar post on the psychology forum, but i wanted to hear specifically from INFPs, so i've copy-pasted a huge chunk of it. (too lazy to rewrite.) this has a lot to do with two facets of my psyche. 1) i've been influenced by the romanticisation of...
  4. i think i overnarrativise myself - any psychological insight?

    General Psychology
    this has a lot to do with two facets of my psyche. 1) i've been influenced by the romanticisation of sadness, and i'm aware of it. you know what i'm talking about - the whole online trend of glorifying sadness and emotion. i first bought into it almost ten years ago, for probably about three...
  5. [ENFP] Crying

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    When do you cry? How often? Do unusual things in life trigger crying? I was texting an ENFP friend of mine about this yesterday. She started the conversation saying she was heading to the beach at night "for a good cry". I was of course concerned and tried to play the part of emotional...
  6. [ENFP] Do You/Have You Had Anger Issues?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I rarely get angry. I am angry today but is such a rarity that it is like a novelty for me. However, I did know an ENFP guy through my twenties that would get angry and physical. He was pretty stocky and once punched a wooden door clean off its hinges. I think ENFPs can be emotionally...
  7. [ENFP] Experience With Fallen ENFPs?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Just wondering if any of my fellow ENFPs have had to deal with a 'fallen' ENFP in your life? I use that term versus "bad" which just seems a step too far. But what I am meaning are ENFPs who have fallen into a place in life where they consistently, even purposefully, try to hurt others? My main...
  8. [INTP] INTP Excitement, I have been through this a few times...

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I have been through this a few times. In fact I experienced it few minutes ago. You feel intense excitement over some new insight or understanding of a concept or problem.But as you are feeling this emotion a parallel emotion starts to raise steadily, the voice of the emotion sounds something...
  9. "Thinking" is more about assessing methods rather than being logical?

    Cognitive Functions
    Based on Carl Jung's descriptions of the thinking functions in his book, "Psychological Types", it seems like they are more about evaluating decision methods rather than being logical. This is especially for Te, which seems to mainly be about ensuring that methods have effective outcomes. Jung...
  10. [ENFP] Long Fuse Or Short Fuse?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    As ENFPs I feel we're pleasant and friendly...Usually. Myself and I've seen the other ENFPs I know in "real life" explode. Some have longer fuses, some have shorter. But it seems like only a select few behaviors make us snap. For me, I can handle the harshest criticism and debate of my...
  11. Ne-Fe loop: ESFJ or ENTP?

    What's my personality type?
    There's this person i know who has very strong Fe and Ne, i think he might be in a loop, but i'm not sure which is stronger, really. Extroverted Feeling: - very open & caring guy, always asking how everyone is, very inclusive - genuinely comforts you when you're sad, expresses "gushy" emotions...
  12. [INFP] Which emotion do you avoid the most?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    What I mean by this is, Which mistakes do you most often avoid making that might bring the most negative feelings in you. I did not want to include other emotions for a reason. The IF temperament is most avoidant of these emotions, from what I have observed. I left multiple choices open in case...
  13. Open expression of strong emotions "cathartic episodes" in front of/with your S.O

    Sex and Relationships
    Open expression of strong emotions "cathartic episodes" in front of/with your S.O I recently had a slightly strange happening? moment? time? I can't quite find the words to explain it but let me set the scene in hopes you may understand; :dejection:My partner & I were watching a comedy movie...
  14. Music Keys, Emotion and Mood

    Book, Music, & Movie Reviews
    MUSIC KEYS AND EMOTION: 2017 EDITION Throughout history, attempts have been made to assign emotional states and moods to musical keys. To give just one example: the German composer and organist Christian Friedrich Schubart's Ideen Zu Einer Aesthetik Der Tonkunst, published in 1806, lists his...
  15. [INFJ] Intensity of emotions felt when alone increases after social interactions

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So I'm wondering if anyone else experiences this.. I spent a lot of my time alone behind the computer every day (working) and I barely see anyone except for family members and some friends every now and then. So the longer I spent alone, the less intense I seem to feel. I don’t know, it feels...
  16. [Enneagram Type 4] A History of (Passive-Aggressive) Violence

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Below is a long tale of my legnthy journey coming to terms with my type 4 unhealthy responses to both healthy and unhealthy type 9-leadership. I was recently introduced to the Enneagram and have been exploding with insights, many of them perhaps pure bullshit! I don't expect any of you will make...
  17. [INFJ] When do you get angry?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'd be interested in hearing how other INFJs express anger and frustration. Does it happen often or rarely and in what kind of situations? I can add my response later in too but I don't wanna influence anyone's answer because I'm genuinely curious :>
  18. [INFP] Emotionally Unavailable Friends

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I feel like I have a problem with wanting to become friends with people who are emotionally unavailable (focus more on "rationality" and reject feelings in thinking.) I was once friends with an ENTP who did not understand others' feelings and thought they were dumb. She would often do small...
  19. [ENTP] Emotionally Disconnected

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Is it common for ENTPs to feel utterly disconnected from other human beings? When I say disconnected I specifically refer to the interpersonal bonds that other people form. To me it seems impossible to determine how other people feel about me unless they explicitly express it, and even then I...
  20. [INFJ] Help meeeee; I joined an infj fb page and it was one of my worst ideas ever

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Quick question: Do you care a lot about being understood? So I'm new here. Heck, this sounds petty. I'm not sure this post will even be seen and I certainly hope joining this page will not be as bad of an idea as joining that group. I guess I need someone to rant to, someone who can conversate...
