  1. [INFP] Tips for having a highly extraverted career?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I got a new job—yay! Still a band directing and elementary job, like my previous one, but I will be the only music teacher in the school district. I think it will be better for me because I hated working with the lead band director at the other school. Now I am (somewhat) free to do what I want...
  2. How does your type generally show kindness and care for others without Fe?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Curious to see how kindness/love plays out in types who are not Fe-dominant, or do not have Fe in their primary stack at all. Also because I believe kindness/caring for others is NOT AT ALL dependent on the functions you use. Sure, being strong with Fe will make it easier to care for others...
  3. How to "recharge" the ability to use a function?

    Cognitive Functions
    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask for help, I simply couldn't think of a better place. My issue is... I'm usually a pretty balanced person (I guess) with pretty good use of my Ne. A few months ago I went through a "Se-phase" where I actually enjoyed living outside of my mind and actively...
  4. Knowing Why and How: Ni or Ti?

    Cognitive Functions
    I've been thinking of Ni as detailed, organized ideas and possibilities; Ti as personal understanding of why/how something works. But some people have been describing Ni as understanding the why/how as well. So if someone is primarily interested in understanding why/how something works, are they...
  5. Ti vs Te examples

    Cognitive Functions
    Any specific scenarios demonstrating the contrast been Ti and Te?
  6. Planning Ahead: Te versus Fe

    Cognitive Functions
    The way I currently interpret Te and Fe is that Te is focused on making things work for the external world situations while Fe is focused on making things meaningful for the external world situations. Therefore, I think that's why "J" types tend to plan ahead more and include the Te/Fe functions...
  7. Eating alone vs with others?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Curious to see what the general trends look like for different types. On a scale of 1-10 (1 = strongly/completely dislike; 10 = strongly/completely like), how much do you like eating alone? And how much do you like eating with others?
  8. [ESTJ] Trying to type a friend

    ESTJ Forum - The Guardians
    Hi, I'm trying to type a friend. I think he's probably ESTJ, but I'm not sure. Here's what I've observed about him. He's a very logical, thoughtful person. He's never afraid to share his opinions, though he takes time to form them and backs them up with facts. So he doesn't tend to give an...
  9. When you meet the eyes of someone with the same Perceiving function...

    Cognitive Functions
    When I meet the eyes of another Ne user(INFP, INTP, ENFP, ENTP), it's like an extra conversation. It's a look of understanding, and it's also the equivalent of a funny joke—we can be giggling like idiots in no time! It feels good to understand someone and to be understood. And it's great to hear...
  10. Does This One Thing Completely Eliminate The Chance Of Being Ne-Dom?

    Cognitive Functions
    So, as you guys may or may not know, Ne- Extroverted Intuition- is the complete opposite of Si- Introverted Sensing. Ne = external possibilities reliant on abstract reasoning Si = introverted reflection and reliance on past experiences of sensory nature So the thing is, for ENTPs and ENFPs...
  11. INFP teen who is attracted to Exxx types?

    Sex and Relationships
    Hi. I have a problem... You see, I am an NNNNFFFFFPEH (INFP). Awkward, hard to get to know, very very interested in unpopular things (literature, all music (experimental, rock, Radiohead to Guns n' Roses), writing, singing, acting, all that nerdy shite), wears glasses and when approached by...
  12. [ENTP] Questions to an ENTP on absolutely NE-THING!

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Feel free to post your questions to ENTPs on absolutely anything here. All types are welcome. Yes, specialised threads exist to keep order, but hey, this is ENTP land so let's keep things Ne-friendly ;) @ ENTPs: Thanks for helping me provide insight! Please keep sarcastic answers to a...
  13. [ENFP] Having Introverted Friends

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Is it weird that I mostly have introverted friends. My closest friend is an INTP and another good friend I have is an INFP. And then I have my ISFP, my INTJ, my ISFJ and so on. I know that just because I'm an extrovert doesn't mean I can't have any introverted friends but I wonder how the hell...

  15. Rank Most/Least Introverted/Extroverted Types

    Myers Briggs Forum
    How would you rank the MBTI types from most to least extroverted? Or least to most introverted? I've heard INFJ being called the most extroverted introvert, and ENFP the most introverted extrovert. Of course it's a matter of opinion, but I'm curious.
  16. What type is most likely to...? (For extroverted types)

    What's my personality type?
    What extroverted type is most likely to do all these things? say, "I need more friends. I'm going out to this party to meet new people and make more friends." be grateful for all their friends and wishes them the best, even if they may become distant. be generally or usually optimistic. Also...
  17. Do INFP's ever get mixed up with ENTP's?

    I know this is an odd post for an introduction but yeah, my name is Oci and I guess i'm an INFP. I was tested as a ENTP this summer (when I just found out what MBTI was) and i've had a strong interest in it. Recently, I got bored and I got re-tested as a INFP which is sort of confusing because I...
  18. [ESFJ] How open are ESFJs?

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    There is a guy in my class that I suspect is an ESFJ and he talks about things in his personal life quite a bit. Even things that I wouldn't share with normally anyone, he talks about them like it's nothing. It might be from the perspective of an INTJ who tends to be a bit secretive and usually...
  19. Does this sound like an ESFJ?

    What's my personality type?
    This person is a male if that makes a difference. Prefers to be given clear instructions. Probably has a clean room (he says he makes his bed every day). Doesn't prefer to be materialistic, but likes space Is/was in a career where they helped people (medically related). Is the type to offer...
  20. What is my best friend's type? (Again, sorry)

    What's my personality type?
    Here are some bullet points of her traits. I don't think I encompassed all of them: She describes herself as "obsessive" when it comes to people. I don't know about "obsessive," but she says she gets attached to people. She's very friendly to people she meets the first time. She may even stay...
