  1. The Nuclear Family

    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...
  2. How Do You Respond To Loved Ones Being Angry

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    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...
  3. [ISFJ] [ISFJ] Best Way to Ask for Help?

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    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...
  4. [INTP] Growing up with domestic violence

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    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...
  5. Sharing to Connect.

    General Psychology
    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...
  6. [ENFP] Kinship With Another ENFP On PerC

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    This is I guess meant to be more fun than anything. For those of us that have been here a bit, do you feel either similar to or a special kinship with? For me it's @Falling Foxes
  7. [ENFP] Dealing with judgment, confrontation, and family parties?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi everyone, 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...
  8. Growing up in an NF bubble

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    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. So...
  9. Is Type About Who You Are Publically or Privately?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    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...
  10. Hi, I'm a new INFJ!

    Hello everybody, 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:
  11. Is personality type affected by family life?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    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...
  12. [INFJ] I am having a difficult time with my family and I'm here to seek advice.

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    How do I delete this thread?
  13. What is wrong with my dad?? [LONG]

    General Psychology
    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...
  14. Emerged from my chameleon-like state and reverted to my original self! Extreme relief

    *edit: I think I am ENFJ ;) Hi everyone! 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...
  15. [INFJ] Others that struggle(d) with living and living with their family?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    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...
  16. How Many Types Have You Met??

    Myers Briggs Forum
    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: INFP ISFP ESFP ESFJ ISTP INTJ INTP INFJ ESTJ ISTJ ENFP ISFJ I am yet to meet: ENTJ ENTP ENFJ ESTP But what about you?
  17. Narcissists From My Life, Part 1 of 2: Uncle Gus

    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...
  18. [INTP] Humor Problems

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Does anyone else have a negative reaction to their jokes sometimes? I was having a conversation with my family tonight over FaceTime. Everyone in the room could hear me. My main convo was with a brother, who I get along with well, but he's always ribbing me. When I shot an insult back in what I...
