  1. Body Triad - Types 8,9,1
    I was remembering someone whose ex-husband was a 9w1 and narcissistic. From what I've heard this girl was emotionally abused and threatened repeatedly on a daily basis. Being attached to this lovey-dovey, conflict-avoiding and peace-seeking 9 image, this got me thinking. Of all the enneagram...
  2. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I have a history of trying to help people who really need it. I realize now that they needed help so much because they weren’t working to help themselves. When I tried to help, I found myself taking responsibility for their lives and for their well-being, even for their decisions. I can’t...
  3. General Psychology
    So recently I've been trying to use psychology to better understand my dad, since he acts really strange. I tried to type him, but I think he may have some sort of mental illness that we (my family) aren't aware of, so it makes it difficult. I would really like some help to figure out whats...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Although I’ve cut him out of my life I still feel as if I carry a part of him with me. It’s been two months and I don’t believe a single day has passed where I haven’t thought of him. I cycle through periods of acknowledging the abuse as truth and periods of crippling self-doubt. I manage to...
  5. General Psychology
    I don't know how to describe this well, so bear with me, but sometimes when I hear people yelling/angry/ranting/getting worked up, especially one of my parents, I feel a not-physical-but-very-literal discomfort. The closest comparison I can make is your reaction when a fire/security alarm...
  6. Myers Briggs Forum
    I hadn't found any threads on this specific issue and personality clashing, but I thought it important to discuss in case any other INTP's had similar experiences in regards to an emotionally exploitative ENFJ mother/father? My mother is an ENFJ, and I really do love her. She's funny...
  7. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I ask this in regards to confronting emotions that you may be feeling at the moment, or attempt to resolve pent-up emotions associated with past events. (I.e. guilt upon realization that you may have been acting in harmful ways towards specific people in your life, that rare time when you let...
  8. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello everyone, According to the majority of NT function people, we are tough, badass, especially unemotionally objective people. Due to the new discovery of MBTI world, some of us even temporarily forget the fact that we are not only those little 4 letter types. Others--me included-- also have...
  9. Advice Center
    Hello, all: I've not said anything about this before, but I need advice. I live with my mother (she turned 80 in September of this year). Sometimes, during interactions with my mom, I hear her say things that, when I first hear them, sound incredibly judgmental and hurtful. I'm almost always...
  10. General Psychology
    Have any of you been in or seen a healthy family? Where everybody is and grows up without emotional issues? I knew a family who seemed like the healthiest family i'd ever seen. Moral, spiritual, mental, emotional harmony all around. Then i found out one of the daughters has OCD. And I knew...
