  1. [ENFP] Crying over College

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi guys! A lot has been going on since we last spoke, and my latest cry for advice is in terms of College. This is honestly just loosely related to MBTI, but I think ENFPS will understand my stressors here so that's why I am posting. I'm a senior, and I have become pretty dead-set on attending...

    Hey guys. I need advice from fellow ENTPs. I am lost as fuck. I am a senior in college , pretty much bored of my business degree (but i study anything i want anyway , so no biggie) , i hardly show up anymore to classes , since i am surrounded by uninspired conventional snobs who yap about...
  3. [INFP] are INFPs not needed in this cold, harsh, pragmatic, Money / business oriented world?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have honestly been severely depressed (& even suicidal) for quite some time lately. One of the biggest/main thought I have is how 'alien' INFPs can often feel, living in this 'ESTJ'-ish world/society. My question is: are we INFPs really not needed in this cold, harsh, pragmatic, shallow /...
  4. [ISFP] How can I start caring again, stop avoiding everything through escapism, and move on?

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I'm a twenty year old ISFP college sophomore student, and I have been struggling with motivation and caring about school since last year, and I don't totally know why. Last year, I was really excited to be auditioning for vocal performance at my school, and I was rejected. Since then, I have...
  5. Guess Dan Howell's (danisnotonfire) Type?

    Guess the type
    So I've been trying to figure out what Dan Howell's personality type is. I think he's an INFJ. Introvert because he enjoys spending time alone, always talks about how socially awkward he is and in this video he explains how he "doesn't like interacting with other humans,". INFJ's are often...
  6. ENTP, asking for help

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I can't really figure out what we're supposed to be doing. Having succeeded living on what seems to be blind luck and a seemingly small supply of innate talent, I've now reached a point in the (SJ-dominated) sphere of the world where I feel that I will fail. Whether that means fail within...
  7. [INFP] "you're thinking too much, it's useless/just waste of time! stop it!"

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    How many of you INFPs have heard many/most people often told you (or even scorned, laughed, ridiculed, or better-way: 'advised' you) these words? and then, do you often feel hurt, or even angry, because it seems that these people don't understand us, and seems to 'invalidate' ALL about...
  8. I'm lost and aimless, somebody help please!

    Advice Center
    So I'm repeating my AS levels as I screwed up last year. I'm screwing up already and I have a feeling they will kick me out of sixth form again, this time for good. I want to do good but I just can't! It's like this inner me prevents me from doing anything because this is not what I want to do...
  9. [INFP] Are you the token Therapist/Philosopher?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have noticed that people within my sphere of influence (friends, family, co-workers) tend to come to me with their problems, looking for comfort, support, a listening ear, and serious conversation before they turn to anyone else, including their own families and spouses. I recieved a phone...
  10. [INTP] How do INTPs fare with existential crises?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    You know, besides coming on to this forum and posting. /shot I mean, dealing with a fair bit myself, I'd like to know; 1) When your first (as far as you can remember) existential crisis was 2) What triggered it 3) How you dealt with it 4) How often you get them (assuming you still do), and...
  11. [INFP] Real world .vs. very vivid human's imaginations & fantasy-creations world

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm just wondering recently.. have any of you, especially INFPs, often feel sooo damn 'trapped' in this so-called 'Real world'??.. the thread Existential Depression have often served as perhaps the main basic explanation as to why I often feel that no matter what, these days especially, I often...
  12. [INFP] "chase your dreams while u're still young" vs "too old/late to pursue ur dreams"!

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    "chase your dreams while u're still young" vs "too old/late to pursue ur dreams"! As a 29 yrs old male INFP who's still living, and sadly, quite dependent with his parents (ie: work with my dad, but don't have any passion in it, so only doing it half-heartedly. parents are frustrated. typical...
  13. [INFP] Help? Trying not to screw up my future? Minor existential crisis!

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So... I'm 17, and I'm most likely going to pass my 'A-level'* exams in spring. Subjects are history, art, Dutch, English, French, geography and music. After that, I need to choose something to study. Problem? The only things I love enough to not die of depression when dealt with in a...
  14. [INFP] The "INFP Blues"

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    It seems many INFPs have depression, or at least existential depression (what is this world and where do I belong?). For me it seems to come from an identity crisis. I don't know who I am, and I am afraid when I find out I won't like me. The more I integrate myself, work on my "shadow", and...
  15. [ENTP] Existential crisis.

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hello, fellow ENTPs. I've realized that I'm going through an existential crisis and am currently full of confusion despite the fact that a few weeks about I was completely sure with the path my life was going to take. I'm a high school senior, but I didn't apply to any colleges other than one...
