Why is the nuclear family the norm? Well it’s because men-women relationships are the majority of relationships in the world and easier for them to have children rather than men-men or women-women, who naturally can't have children together and thus go down unnatural procedures to have children...
Basically, how do you react when a loved one (family, mate, friend, etc.) is expressing their frustration and anger, not necessarily towards you, but rather on something you don't have any relevancy in the matter.
I'm asking this because I'm extremely sensitive to my partner's mood and...
Howdy, ISFJ here.
I know that ISFJs REAALLY struggle with opening up about their own feelings and asking for help when they need it.
Personally, I can ask for help when it doesn't involve my own feelings, but if I'm in a really bad mental/emotional place I feel like everything shuts down. If...
I know for some this may seem odd, but I want to let you know that when I was a teen and a kid, I was on PersonalityCafe, and this website was like a getaway or a second home that I could escape into when my family situation was really bad.
I wanted to make a thread to really put it out there...
I just (on a desperate whim) did a google search of "conventionally good looking and lonely".
I usually don't find many gems (who does right? a gem is hard to find) in the search and end up disappointingly weeding through irrelevant results and dated forums.
Short back story: I had plans for...
I recently have connected with two thinker types, and this has been really great for me because they have a completely different perspective on the world and everything. So I'm learning a lot from them right now, but I do have something pretty sensitive that I don't feel completely...
So I am an INFP child of an ENFP mum and an INFJ dad with no siblings. I'm not sure where this post is going or what the point is supposed to be, so sorry if it's long and a bit rambly, but I really do think it could be interesting as it is an excellent case study of these three types.
Ah the old private self, public self split. I’m sure everyone has experienced this, even the most extroverted kinds of people. So, what I’m wandering is, to know our true type, do we do a quantitative approach where “well more people see me in these traits therefore I must be that type” OR do we...
I'm a 24 years old girl from Italy that just joined. I'm a type INFJ and I've known for a while time but it took me a long time to search for a blog with like-minded people. I guess maybe the introvert intuitive in me? :oh:
Does a person's family life affect what MBTI type they'll grow up to be? If so, what parts of their personality are affected, and by how much?
I have seen time and time again, whenever there are two children, one is introverted and the other is extroverted. They also tend to fan our across...
So recently I've been trying to use psychology to better understand my dad, since he acts really strange. I tried to type him, but I think he may have some sort of mental illness that we (my family) aren't aware of, so it makes it difficult. I would really like some help to figure out whats...
*edit: I think I am ENFJ ;)
I have changed so much the last couple of days. It's like I am my true self now and the guy I was before was just some stupid mask.
I have had an extremely emotional week and I have been crying like a little bitch. And holy shit it feels good, haha...
Would you mind sharing your expierences with me or giving me some tips?
My family consists now of 5 members (without myself and my dad), since my parents divorced. (This Info isn't really important since everything is the same just with exchanged people)
Okay, the main problem is that I, as an...
Keep in mind, family and friends included. But you have to have actually conversed with these people on some level.
I have met 12 out of 16 of the types. These are:
I am yet to meet:
But what about you?
I've had a couple of narcissists in my life and I'm going to write about my experiences with them, for the benefit of anyone who wants to read about narcissism. Lengthy, but worth it for those interested.
The first one is my uncle, my mom's older brother. I'll give him the pseudonym "Uncle...
