  1. Sex and Relationships
    There have been studies that have surfaced that during ovulation, women are more attracted to men with good genes; men that are sexy, aggressive, physically intimidating, and dominant. While that outside of that phase women are more attracted to guys that are empathetic, good willed, gentle...
  2. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I recently got into Mbti and I'm convinced that my dad is an ENTP. At first I thought that he might be an ENFP like me but after studying the cognitive functions, I'm pretty sure he's an ENTP. Yes, both of us lead with Ne. That's why I grew up as the daughter he understood best and why I relate...
  3. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I made this account specifically to ask this question as I am at a loss, and who better to ask about ENFPs than ENFPs themselves? My ENFP father, who I live with, is constantly breaking plans, going against schedules, you get the idea hopefully. It's like he has no concept of time and does not...
  4. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm starting a new job next week and decided to take the MBTI to refresh myself on my strengths/weakness/tendencies. I have always gotten INFP, but this time I got ENFP. I was surprised because I would never, ever call myself an extrovert. However, when I read the description (especially when I...
  5. Cognitive Functions
    I just want to say at the beginning that, while this post specifically applies to novels, it doesn't necessarily need to. I'm aiming to present a theory on how the cognitive functions of a person might be personified, not just for writing but in any place where it might be used. * * * As an...
  6. Type 1 Forum - The Reformer
    Type 1s, how was your relationship with your father? By "father" I mean the parent/guardian who played (or should have played) the protective/disciplinary/guiding parental role toward you in your early childhood. (As opposed to the nurturing/affectionate role.) Was your father present or absent...
  7. Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi! I think the title kind of says it all, but I suppose an explanation wouldn't hurt... I've been thinking a lot about what it's like becoming a parent (I haven't done so yet), and while I realise the experience is unique to every individual, I still think being an introvert might come with...
  8. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hey guys, I'm hoping you can help. I was a few months old when my parents divorced. From ages 0-15, I hardly saw my dad. Seeing him once every 2 weeks with long overseas periods of no contact at all. I know this has changed me permanently. I have incrediblely high agression, much to the dismay...
  9. What's my personality type?
    So, I have great trouble identifying my fathers personality. He took a test giving him XSFP, but taking a cognitive functions test the most dominant functions were Fe Ni Te Se (and then Ti Si Fi Ne) which gave first possibility ENFJ, second possibility INFJ, and third ESTJ. F/S: He is very...
  10. Blog
    As some of you know from previous posts, my dad is an ENTP, and the apple didn't fall far from the tree. He has been a huge inspiration in my life and we are always working on projects together. A few months ago I stopped by his office because he wanted to show me something he made. He has an...
  11. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I'm curious about people's experiences with ENFP parenting -- either being one or having one. In your experience, what's the good, the bad, and the ugly about being an ENFP parent or being raised by an ENFP?
  12. Intro
    I figure that I might as well use the format from the "You, Me, & Everyone Else We Know" thread. Personal: What do you preferred to be called? 光の聖人 (Hikari No Seijin) Any nicknames? Seijin Male/Woman/Trans? Male Location: Where were you originally born? Kansas Where do you love now...
  13. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I'll explain a bit. I'm INFJ, my dad is INTJ, and we hardly ever get along. (when we do, though, it's amazing, how in sync we can become). But for the most part, I can't seem to please him. No matter what I do, I can't live up to his standards and ideals. He wants to much from me, and I'm...

  15. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Gonna make this simple, I don't like my job. I don't know if I ever have liked any job I have ever had longer than 2 months at best. I'm a father, married--and sometimes I think my struggle to stay gainfully employed, is something I may be alone in. I end up quitting because of being wound...
  16. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I apologize in advance for this lengthy and very personal post. I'm kind of in a dark place right now, and can't think of a single person who I trust to tell this part of my life to so, naturally I'm posting it on the internet for complete strangers to read and comment on. DUH. :dry: I guess I...
  17. Advice Center
    Hi all, So this is my first post, though I have been reading these forums for years. I have found the information on here to be very helpful to me in regards to communicating with, and truly understanding different personality types. I have always had a rocky relationship with my dad (He is an...
  18. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Hi ISTPs, I'm an ISFP. As you probably gathered, I have an ISTP dad -- for awhile there I thought he was INTJ, but he's more likely ISTP I've realized. Bear with me, this might be painful/boring to read. It is as distasteful for me to write as you to read. I would like to resolve a slight...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Do you have children? How old were you when you had your first child?
