  1. [INFJ] Factors which influence self-esteem?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm really curious about the development of self-esteem and what influences it during childhood development. During my lifetime, I've met people who are very attractive but have low-self esteem because of certain experiences. Yet I've also met others who are nothing special in the looks...
  2. [INFJ] Attraction to Virgins

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I think there is something so sweet and romantic about being someones first. I don't mean in a 'before marriage' way. I know a lot of women find virgin men a turn-off but I'm always intrigued as to why X person is reserving themselves. Its like an enigma I must unravel, delicately of course...
  3. Battered Women

    I am a man. I am an ESFP man. Funny guy, wanna hear a joke? Well, that is not on the menu today. I now have a lovely daughter who is dating, and will likely pick a beau and change her name, etc., bla, bla, bla. That is good. For here, that is the way it should be. God forbid that she should get...

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I was just wondering about the typical self esteem of an INFJ. I know that we are very prone to perfectionism, and that may be a cause of my low self esteem. But, am I the only one who has very poor self esteem, self image, body image, and self worth? On a scale of 1 to 10 for all those...

  8. ENFP self esteem vs. other esteem

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I wonder if enfps need esteem of others to feel esteem for ourselves, or if we derive so much energy from our interactions with others that we feel better about our selves and our lives when we're in contact with lots of people. I feel like my creativity and happiness plummet when I'm isolated...
  9. INFJs and self-esteem

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Is it common for INFJs so suffer from a low self-esteem? Are we ever satisfied with ourselves? I suffered with low self-esteem for a long time. My need for perfection and to please was never fulfilled, I could always find something that was wrong with me, especially physically. I used to think I...
