  1. [Enneagram Type 7] Only two moods: super excited and null/void

    Head Triad - Types 5,6,7
    I'm a 7w6. By default, I have no emotional state, at least not one that I can detect. It's just null/void/blank, and not even something I think about or focus on. But sometimes I get really excited about something. I'm actually very easily excitable, so then I get super excited very quickly and...
  2. [INFP] Everything I write is sad (but I'm not)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm tired of writing sad things. I introspect a lot, I tend to overthink. Such is the nature of an INFP, right? Overall I'm mostly content and pushing myself to grow every day, which brings me satisfaction. I think I'm a 4w5, but I wish I was more like a 7 (and that's how I'm trying to be day to...
  3. MBTI+: Emotional Directions or Emotional Direction Temperaments

    Myers Briggs Forum
    This topic has been partly covered in Emotional Repressions-Developments, though will be addressed mainly here: There are seven main Emotional Directions (ED), where people channel their energy unimpeded by Emotional Repressions. Besides this, there is a primary Emotional Direction and a...
  4. [Enneagram Type 5] Unpredictable emotions?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Dear type 5's, I struggle with unpredictable emotions, is this typical? My relationship has ended (been together +/- 4 years), feeling pretty bad right now. However, the first few weeks I didn't feel this way at all and told everyone I was doing fine this way. The weird thing is, I genuinely...
  5. Fe-users how do you deal with private emotions?

    Cognitive Functions
    For those who have Fi, emotions tend to be more private and contained within the individual. Especially with Fi-doms who are often described as 'still waters run deep'. How do Fe-users, especially xxFJs deal with their more private emotions? I want to understand Fe more since I have this view...
  6. [INFJ] Have you ever noticed this about the mirror?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have observed something odd that when you look into the mirror, the reflection changes the expression of your face. Some of the things I noticed were: When a face has aspects that show a particular emotion, the reflection of the face has an expression of a person who thinks he is showing that...
  7. [INFP] What is the last thing that made you cry?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm not trying to stereotype INFPs as crybabies and whatnot, but sometimes I cry from things that I feel no one else would understand, and I want to write about it. Please share what has made you cry if you, too, would like to ruminate on your moment. Happy tears, sad tears, confused tears...
  8. [INTJ] INTJ Men with High-functioning Autism or Asperger's, please respond...

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Do you ever have the tendency to not know that you're feeling deep feelings for someone until you've inadvertently hurt them by saying there wasn't a connection (when there was. we talked every day and had been physical after a revelation of feelings), there was an emotional ending to your...
  9. [INTJ] Ending a Relationship - Downside of the Analytical Mind HELP!

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey everyone! I'm Fabia, a 22 year old INTJ female. There's something on my mind, that I cannot talk about with anyone for others' (family and friends) inability to follow my thinking process. So I came here to gain some clarity. In 2016 I entered a relationship with a man (25 in 2016, I was...
  10. [ENFP] Songs Connected To Major Life Events

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    For some reason I find somehow a song gets connected to major events in my life. Examples including a very nervous me listening to the Dandy Warhols "We Used To be Friends" to my first day at University. Another is Major Lazer & DJ Snake - "Lean On" on an epic family trip down the Oregon Coast...
  11. [ESTP] Rant/stream of consciousness

    ESTP Forum - The Doers
    Because a lot of other types have this and we don't. Every type needs to rant or post random thoughts sometimes. And this could be happy rants too, like "i'm so proud of my friend who asked this person out i've been encouraging them for years" or "thank goodness the DLC for FIFA 19 was only...
  12. 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...
  13. ENFJ crushes?

    Blog
    I know this question has been asked many times but I can't help but notice that some comments on other asks were from mistyped enfjs. So here are a couple of questions. ~Enfjs are nice to everyone, how do I know if they particularly are crushing on someone? ~Do they run away from their...
  14. [ENFJ] ENFJ thoughts on art?

    ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hello everyone, I'm thinking of creating an ENFJ character who also happens to be an art forger for a story I'm writing. My question for you is whether you think art forgery is also a form of art (as in; trying to recreate the emotions the original artist put into the artwork, etc.) and what you...
  15. Responding to suicide (how??)

    General Psychology
    Obviously a sensitive topic, don't read on if you don't like it. Unfortunately people in our society can have terrible lives and mental states (and more) that can lead them to take their own lives. I'm young, so to more socially experienced people out there: How are you supposed to react as...
  16. Easily-angered, temperamental people: Low or high Fi?

    Cognitive Functions
    I can see how a dominant Fi would mean the person is very in touch with their emotions and their feelings are very important to them and therefore feelings can be easily hurt. But also, an inferior Fi would mean the person is less in touch with their emotions and therefore less able to control...
  17. [INTJ] Soul crushing loneliness

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello fellow INTJ's Since last year I've started to feel very lonely it is almost indistinguishable from physical pain. It was last year I realized that I didn't have any close or good friend. When most of my peers started to go out it became clear to me that nobody really likes me and prefers...
  18. Is my ENFJ boyfriend emotionally manipulating me?

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    Is my ENFJ boyfriend manipulating my emotions? Hello! This is my first post and I was really hoping I could get some advice for my relationship. I feel uncomfortable talking about this with people I know personally. (Also I’m sorry for my crappy writing skills lol) So my boyfriend is an...
  19. [INFP] Fi-Si-loops and how to get out of them

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey, I'm new here, but I'm really enjoying to read that there are folks all over the world in similar situations with similar problems. Perhaps you know what I mean just by reading the title, if not, I will shortly explain what's the matter with Fi-Si-loops. Do you know this, there are days...
  20. [INFP] If Someone Says Sorry Do You Forgive Easily?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi INFPs So a little question I have for you, which I find I constantly compare and question my type because of, is- if someone says sorry do you find it easy to forgive within that moment or do you find even with sorry, your emotions are hard to drop? I know you guys probably have questions-...
