  1. Cluelessness About The Operation of Emotions

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Again and again on PerC I see NTs say things that seem to suggest profound cluelessness about how emotions work. It's usually some variation of "that emotion is stupid/a waste of time," "people shouldn't feel this way," or "I just decide not to feel that." Do human beings generally have enough...
  2. Do Your Emotions Nearly Overwhelm Your Logic For No Reason?

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I didn't catch a lot of sleep last night. So I was pretty tired today and had a donut with coffee (no small dose of suger). This is a bad combination for me because caffeine really doesn't do anything for me, and sugar just worsens the effects of being tired. Anyway, I'm riding along and I...
  3. [Enneagram Type 4] How do you guys learn to feel less shame?

    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...
  4. [INTJ] Deciphering INTJ Fi

    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...
  5. Intelligence! Do you feel dumb or smart? Does it matter?

    General Psychology
    Hi PerC. After ruminating on the state of my brain, I thought it worth a post about intelligence. Do you feel dumb more often than you feel smart? Does this feeling affect how dumb or smart you think you are? Does intelligence matter at all for your well-being? Does de-valuing intelligence...
  6. [ENFP] Does anyone feel like me?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi! A year or two ago I actually had an account on here but i've misplaced it. I'm struggling a bit with life and I was just wondering if people experience the same thing. I guess it doesn't help that I have an eating disorder, but.. I can't stop thinking, I'm always thinking, I'm almost...
  7. Identity Crisis

    General Psychology
    I realize that our personalities, memories, interests evolve over time; but what do you do when you feel like you've just *stopped* and are unraveling? I'm currently 21 and I've been on this down-ward spiral for for almost 3 years. I am a ghost compared to who I was when I was < 18 yrs. I...
  8. Fe and Fi: When the Emotional Palettes Collide

    Cognitive Functions
    When Fi runs up against Fe, it is usually very emotional, messy, and painful. This is because we are running against each other's value system and it feels like if one of us is right the other is completely wrong. If I am wrong (thinks Fi user) then my entire life is meaningless. If I am wrong...
