  1. What's my Enneagram type?
    What is your main, general goal in life? I like to be successful and competent so I don't need to suffer. When I'm not suffering, my imaginations make me satisfied and I become more confident. I also like to influence people that way. But I may like some short-term pleasures to get satisfied...
  2. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hey guys, I'm curious: What are some typical "greatest fears" of an ENFP? For example, some of mine include a fear that I'm not actually a good person deep down, or that I will end up alone. Feel free to share if comfortable! We can all find strength together haha
  3. 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...
  4. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    oooh, I'm so happy I have found enneagrams. I know we would be over otherwise. Our story in short. We met about 8 months ago. We have fallen apart twice because of his typical 5 detachment and my (type 6) neediness and uncertainty. He is very scared because his ex-girlfriend was very jealous and...
  5. Generation Y Forum
    Fear is the most powerful driving force for change. As we as a generation are today responsible for the world we want to live in, it's interesting to figure out what are those fears so that we can put them behind us to push us, rather than keeping them unconsciously in front of us, stopping us...
  6. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I've gone through a period where I gained a lot of self confidence and initiative and ever since then I found no problems letting out my 4ishness. But the world is kind of stepping on it a little bit and I'm having troubles with my core fears. When I like a person (romantic or not) I go in head...
  7. General Psychology
    Posting from phone as I rest. Right now I am in this scouts or cadet program thing my school is being made to go through and I nearly drowned. I held my breath but when I got down to the bottom of the water slide into the 1 metre pool I gasped either because of cold water or my panic of having...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone, I’m fairly new to the PC INFJ community, but I’ve been trying to find a solution to one of my many issues, and I figured this forum would be a great source of inspiration and advice. So, I’m an aspiring writer and I just finished studying Professional Writing (the program was a...
  9. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    INFJs... and anyone else who stumbles upon this forum... what are you so afraid of? As an INFJ, I seem to spend a lot of time worrying and, well, scared. Here, we can see if fears are common to certain MBTI personality types, or if I'm just going crazy :shocked: I like to separate fears into...
  10. Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    My friend is a type 9 and I just found out that she's struggling with anorexia. Until now I actually thought she was a very healthy 9, she got a scholarship and then also raised 2000$ for cancer on her own. She's probably going to be hospitalized soon but I know that when she gets out of the...
  11. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Mine would be.... *Being the cause of awkward situations.(And that is mostly the reason I don't talk much) *Being told off, especially if I have something important to say. (Though I don't think that THAT is irrational.)
  12. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Being the ignorant one losing my confidence Coming across as cold and selfish Losing an argument about racism Eating expired yoghurt Losing my ability to draw well Being kidnapped
  13. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Since it's October and the time of year when all the scaries start to slither about, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the things that creeped (or still creep) you out as a child. Let's start off with this, for one thing: Whywhywhywhywhy?! And this: Which came from a...
  14. Myers Briggs Forum
    In evaluating the types of people I know and verifying my type, I would like to compare fear by type. I would like to find a kind of nice list that describes what each type most fears and why (i.e. INTP fearing failure). I believe I am INTP and almost everything in my life I get insecure and...
  15. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    It's been said that INTPs (and likely other NTs as well) don't share the traditional fears of others, such as death. And in lue of traditional fears we have somewhat nonsensical fears, for example; I'm deathly afraid of large crowds and expressing emotionality. And yes, as you might've...
  16. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I understand that everyone is judgemental in some way, but do you other INFJ's feel more so? It's the one thing I've never wanted to be. One of my biggest fears is being seen as a judgmental snob; therefore, my whole life, I've done everything I can to keep my presumptuous thoughts at bay. But...
  17. General Psychology
    I'm just interested to see what trends will occur with INTJs and/or Type 6 and their fears/phobias. Why do you think you're afraid of these things? My phobia: Octopus Just typing the word makes me nauseous...I'm not entirely sure why I'm so terrified of them but they're absolutely...
  18. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    How do you guys handle it? Do you like it? Provided I'm not put on the spot -- I hate that -- I actually enjoy public speaking and performance. Paradoxically, talking to strangers fills me with dread, and I'm usually very quiet otherwise, so when people discover this side of me, they're...
  19. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Just curious about what things irrationally scare you. I've come to realize recently that I now may have a genuine phobia of making phone calls. Making them scares me half to death. I have to write out scripts of what I will say, and answers to things that the other person might ask me, and...
