  1. [INFJ] Waking up, healing, becoming true

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello INFJs of the interwebs, I got emotionally abused by a covert narcissist for two years, I was codependent with her and she was my best friend. After weeks of guilt inducing I ended the relationship to her. First I was so proud and felt so liberated and full of energy. Now I just saw how...
  2. [ENFP] What Scared You As a Kid?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    When I was young a lot of things would scare me but not traditional things. Which is why I'm asking. For example, I wasn't afraid of the dark, or strangers, or the "bogeyman". Here are the fears I can remember: -The Unsolved Mysteries show theme -Police sketches -Radiation -My parents...

  4. [INFP] Anyone else blow things up in their heads?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm not sure if this roots from anxiety, or having enneagram 6 in my enneagram tri-type, but I always turn little things into major problems in my head. And I say this unironically: it's a big problem for me haha. It's hard to pinpoint examples because I can explain them all away, so I'm just...

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I was reading something on reddit (I’m too lazy to remember now) oh wait... I just did:D Well, the summary is that there’re quite some INTJs on distress out there: INTJs having trouble staying sharp. We all know what our biggest fear is. And my suggestion is: why don’t we take an INTJ approach...

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello, first I'd like to thank anyone who takes the time to read this and respond to it, whatever kind of advice I get will truly help me.

  7. [INFP] Which emotion do you avoid the most?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    What I mean by this is, Which mistakes do you most often avoid making that might bring the most negative feelings in you. I did not want to include other emotions for a reason. The IF temperament is most avoidant of these emotions, from what I have observed. I left multiple choices open in case...

  11. How does ENFPs fear of commitment take shape in your lifes?

    Intro
    Hey guys, I'm kind of at the beginning of a relationship (before the beginning, actually). I've been overanalyzing it too much and the last two hours I suddenly got pretty hysteric about it. Like, my mind completely freaked out. I'm scared of making ANYTHING official of showing there's...
  12. [INFP] Not pursuing relationships, fear of hurting the other person.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I keep finding myself in situations where things somehow don't work out and the other person gets hurt which makes me feel awful (maybe I'm just easy to guilt-trip..). Now I find myself shying away from people I really like out of fear of having them grow attached to me and then somehow get hurt...

  14. 3 Simple Fears

    General Psychology
    While doing some self analyzing, this theory came to me that people have 1 of 3 deepest fears at the root of a lot of their other fears. These are: Fear of Emotional/Mental Pain Fear of Humiliation/Embarrassment Fear of Being Flawed/Imperfect Yes, they are very oversimplified, but I love...
  15. Fear of animals

    General Psychology
    There's something I've always been curious about. Ever since I was young, I've had a fear of all animals, bugs, and inbetween. It's not just spiders, and snakes, it's almost every animal I've ever been in contact to some extent. My mom says when I was three years old I saw this dog named Sammy...
  16. [INFJ] Social Anxiety "Waves"

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello dear community. =) I want to ask a few questions about anxiety. But at first I have to admit that I never got a diagnosed anxiety by any doctor or therapist. I just feel my feelings in social interactions are more than "just" shyness and I have a big fear for the future. (to be alone and...
  17. [INFJ] Help meeeee; I joined an infj fb page and it was one of my worst ideas ever

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Quick question: Do you care a lot about being understood? So I'm new here. Heck, this sounds petty. I'm not sure this post will even be seen and I certainly hope joining this page will not be as bad of an idea as joining that group. I guess I need someone to rant to, someone who can conversate...
  18. Depths of Ni

    Socionics Forum
    I've recently descended back into the depths of my Ni. I now realise why I left. It is so fucking painful, especially when you mix in that Fi-. In a weird way, it makes me super cold, and dark, and that kind of scares me. It's interesting that Ni+ is described as a flow of time, and harmonious...
  19. [INFP] Roommate Problems

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi everyone, I have a roommate dilemma. A new girl recently (in the middle of January) replaced my old roommate and has been causing a lot of problems, but I'm not sure how to handle them. I find that I can't stand up for myself without a great deal of anxiety. I don't want to hurt her feelings...
  20. [INFJ] Has anyone else had this problem in the "social environment"?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As of recently I have made a personal discovery about the origins of how and why I have a certain fear. And it also ties in with the Enneagram 4 labeled fear "that they have no identity or personal significance". Generally, with "friends" (both close and acquaintance) I tend to hide away or...
