  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone! Recently I am very into learning more about spirituality and meditiation. I have already tried meditating some times in my life, but I never really managed it doing regularly. I have been feeling stressed out over the past weeks/months and as I am also a little without...
  2. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    Hi hello my ISFP buds!! I'm a third-year university student, who is being progressively hindered by my poor time management and inability to focus. When the pressure's on and submissions are quickly looming, that's enough to get me going, but I'm finding that alone is just not cutting it...
  3. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Introduction Many of us have given in to powerful beliefs, such as, "These great ideas I have will never get going." or "I will follow through, but not today." Perhaps it is not really our fault. The discovery of personality type, something that at first delivers hope, later becomes easy to...
  4. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Probably this is an Ne issue, but my procrastination has reached the point where I'll be pulling all-nighters multiple times a week due to "oh, i'll do it tomorrow!" I'll try to compose an essay, and then end up on PC. Stare at my calculus worksheet, then I'm teaching myself how to play the...
  5. Advice Center
    I am an ENFP w/ blonde hair, blue eyes, 18 years old, a senior in high school, I have ADHD(on a scale of 1-10, I'm a 9.9999). I am medicated, I exercise, I meditate, and a vegetarian since birth. I used to rock climb freshmen year, but due to injuries(shoulder, back, wrists..) had to stop for a...
  6. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I just started a job at a fast-food joint, and I'm having a lot of trouble concentrating and getting everything done that I've been asked to do. I also seem to be a bit of a klutz because almost everything I touch breaks. (As in: I touch the freezer door and it falls off) At first everyone was...
  7. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I actually don't like white noise recordings/web sites/etc. (Such as SimplyNoise..) I find them distracting, rather than helpful, when I'm trying to focus on something. My older brother likes them, though. Actually, I'm a lot better off listening to my own favorite music--I tend to memorize...
  8. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I'm actually trying to accomplish something this summer by taking a stab at some self-improvement (crazy, right?). Some of the things I would like to get around to include perfecting my conversational German, amassing information to build my knowledge base, exercising more, catching up on...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    What have you recently noticed that has reminded you that you're living in a physical world?
  10. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    After grokking how core inertia is to an INTP's core self, I began to suspect that there's a key relationship between inertia and resilience. I'm not sure if it's obvious, but what do you think? Is there a relationship? What might it look like? How might that influence an INTP's walk?

    Does the nomadic lifestyle appeal to you? If so, which parts?
  12. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    List the reasons you can think of why formalized study is a challenge for you. The reasons why it's a walk in the park, if it is, even at times would also be useful. Procrastination is a given, not just for INTPs, but for many other types so I think we can take that off the table.

    Could INTPs be similar to programmers even when they aren't? "And when your brain isn’t working at full capacity it looks for something to do. Being tired makes you dumb enough that the task at hand is enough." - Business Insider: Why Programmers Work at Night
  14. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    First things first:figure out what you value. We are highly driven by our values, if you can zeroin on what you value and stick to it, you will be immensely happy. I know we are alldifferent, but some good starting points for INFP's would be; Health, Self Growth,Confidence, Focus, Freedom...
  15. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Meditation is a clinically tested way of increasing focus, clarity of cognition, balanced emotions, health and feelings of well being. Do you meditate? (There are many different ways of meditating.) What do you observe happens when you meditate (immediately and in the following days)?
  16. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I know there's a thread like this in the E9 forum, so I thought it'd be interesting to have one here also. I've been in a rut with motivation for a couple of years now. Mainly concerning university.. Us 5's are meant to be renowned for our unyielding focus, but I think I've been perpetually...
  17. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I realize that this is at least the second music thread today. The reason I decided to go ahead with it anyway, is because my idea for the thread was a bit more specific than a broad discussion of tastes. So here goes: INTPs (and anyone else that feels like joining in), besides listening to...
  18. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I love reading (or maybe just the idea of reading). However, I often struggle with really focusing strongly enough to read books. Whether it is a fantasy or theology book, I often get distracted by my own thoughts. Sometimes I find my self reading a couple paragraphs without realizing it, then I...
