  1. Is gender and sex the same thing?

    Member Polls
    It's a poll about language, and what is the most common understanding in the usage of those terms. I'm obviously concerned by this question as I'm trans, and I'm a proponent of a dissociation between gender and sex. But because I know that in english those words tend to be interchangeable...
  2. What it means to be or identity as a Greygender

    General Psychology
    Identifying As "Graygender"/"Greygender" Graygender / Greygender: a person who identifies as (at least partially) outside the gender binary and has a strong natural ambivalence about their gender identity or gender expression. They feel they have a gender(s), as well as a natural inclination...

  4. [INFJ] INFJs, how do you relate to your gender?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey INFJs... just some thoughts that have been on my mind. So I identify as a cis female and I'm not questioning but I don't identify super strongly with the idea of being a woman as a part of my identity. For example, I don't feel any particular camaraderie with women over men, I think of...
  5. [INFP] gender differences in types

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    The difference between men and women in certain MBTI types is still unexplained. Like I know the environmet, experiences form as who we are, but it's so cool finding the same types, yet they are so diferent (especially SJ. they are the most diverse really). The thing is that i would like to hear...
  6. Why is gender segregation legal but racial segregation is illegal?

    General Psychology
    Gender segregation is commonplace in a lot of parts of society -- girl/boy scouts, college dorms, sororities/fraternities, private schools, shared hospital rooms, etc.* So why is this accepted but racial segregation is seen as evil? I can understand why sex segregation would exist between...
  7. What is Lawyer's gender?

    Member Polls
    Users have disagreed on this subject throughout history, and some of them even periodically have disagreements with themselves about it. I decided to let the public decide on the subject that my gender is. I made the poll anonymous, so those of you who happen to know my gender but still want...
  8. [INFP] Who did you end up marrying?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey INFPs or other types that might be married to INFPs. 1. What type did you end up marrying? 2. How long as has it been? 3. Are things good? 4. Are you male or female? 5. Are they male or female? 6. What types were you dating/previously married to? 7. Why did you leave them for your...
  9. Any men who have struggled with unwanted friendships?

    General Psychology
    Unwanted friendships have been a persistent irritant in my life. People who I don't really like (find annoying, or just not interesting, or whatever) decide they want to be friends with me, and since it's not really socially acceptable to outright reject someone as a friend (to even hint that...
  10. MBTI Statistics and Gender Stereotypes

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Myers Briggs Statistics | Statistic Brain Thought it'd be interesting to compare gender stereotypes (mostly in modern western society, I will say) with the actual statistics (not to say this is the last word, and it's subjective anyway, since tests are qualitative too). I think it's most...
  11. Intersex Awareness Day

    Blog
    I posted this on the forum a few minutes ago, but I thought I'd post it here too so it reaches more people. Feel free to discuss it on THIS THREAD, and thanks so much for reading!
  12. Gender differences and type differences

    Myers Briggs Forum
    How much do you think the whole 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus' thinking is explainable by Myers-Briggs or personality theories in general? Would you say SFJ vs STJ is sometimes just like 'typical female' vs 'typical male'? Of course, SFJ males and STJ females are still common, but...
  13. Is Demisexuality Gender Specific?

    Sex and Relationships
    Would one differentiate between a straight demisexual and a gay one for instance? Does demisexuality dictate anything about sexual orientation based on sex or gender? Are demisexuals more likely to be bi/pansexual? Edit: Also where does one draw the line between finding someone aesthetically...
  14. What makes a woman?

    General Psychology
    I was reading this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/07/opinion/sunday/what-makes-a-woman.html?_r=0 And it was saying that there was such thing as a 'female' brain. Do you think it's true? A woman can't be defined as someone with female genitalia because what about the transgenders: the...
  15. [ENTJ] ENTJ ladies and femininity

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    ENTJ ladies, do you find yourselves feminine? How do other people perceive you when it comes to this? I have to admit that I was a huge tomboy when I was a kid, and especially when I hit puberty. It could do something with the fact that I entered the puberty earlier than I was really ready to...
  16. Where are all the NT ladies at??

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Seriously. This is a clarion call for all the NT women. We need to form a coalition. I am an ENTP and I thought for years that I was a feeling type. After all, isn't it so acceptable and encouraged to be emotional and nurturing? Now I'm not saying we aren't, because we are just as capable...
  17. [INFP] How do I get over my fear of public restrooms?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi! So I have a bit of an issue with public restrooms. Not because of hygiene but because of the fact that most of the time there's a separate restroom for men and women. I'm a girl and I'm fine with having a girl's body (most of the time). It's just that I don't really believe in the gender...
  18. T/F preferences and gender expectations

    Myers Briggs Forum
    The conflict between type preference and gender norms seems to me an important element not taken seriously enough in MBTI type profiles. There's plenty written on what percentage of T versus F types are male versus female, but my sense is that most type descriptions are written to best fit...
  19. [ISTP] ISTP or ISFP?

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I've typed myself as ISTP awhile ago, and that's also what I've gotten on most of the personality tests, but recently, when I studied the individual preferences (Ni Ne Si Se Ti Te Fi Fe), I found that along with my Ti, my Fi is also pretty strong. My Ti is distinctly stronger, but the fact that...
  20. INFPs more open minded in dating?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    do you think INFPs are more open minded in dating in terms of dating outside their social group, 'race', ethnicity, religion, etc? Like it's more dependent on personality, rather than societal norms? Like they're driven more by the idealism of their heart? Also I'm not sure if there's any fact...
