  1. Blog
    I put this on the INFP confession thread, and I wanted to blog it here: Hey, my boyfriend and I broke up. It's rough because I fell in love with him, and he's the only one that I've ever fallen in love with. Basically, he didn't have enough time for us. He has a lot going on—he is a single...
  2. SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    Hi so I'm an ESTJ female and I was thinking back about some of the ways I've reacted when bad things have happened in my life and realized they were a little strange. For example when my grandmother passed away I didn't mention it to any of my friends or even my boyfriend even though I knew...

    This past weekend we moved to our new apartment. It's perfect for us. My mind, however, is split--not only because I don't do moves well, but because a young woman whom [my husband] and I cared for very much, whom we mentored and knew as more than just an acquaintance, was murdered. When...

    For those who didn't see where I wrote about her, she was someone I loved; someone that my husband, I, and others mentored; she was considered, and considered herself "retarded", and had other ideas about herself as unworthy of love. A serial killer murdered her and another woman...
  12. Baby Boomers Forum
    This is not meant to be whining or a downer of a subject, but rather a constructive discussion of a real life challenge some of us boomers are trying to deal with. Does anyone else but myself ever feel like these aging years are a life sentense with no hope of being able to make things better...
  13. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi everyone, I'm an INFJ and have a close INTP friend whose mother recently passed away. We haven't spoken about the incident yet and I was hoping some of you INTPs may help me with how to best approach the situation. I understand that everyone has a different way of dealing with death, but...

    Loneliness has a thick consistency. It isn’t black, but grey. It wraps you up in molasses and it pulls you underneath. It pulls you to a place where the eyes can’t see and the ears can only hear the bleary-eyed half-hearted moans of helplessness. The sound of the world ending is wordless and...
  15. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    I originally posted this (quite long) post in the INFP sub-forums. Got some good responses, but someone said to post here to get an ENTJ opinion. Please let me know. I'm an INFP guy (with some INTJ tendencies, maybe?) in my mid 30's. Divorced 2 kids. I've known ENTJ woman for well over 8...
  16. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm an INFP guy (with some INTJ tendencies, maybe?) in my mid 30's. Divorced 2 kids. I've known ENTJ woman for well over 8 years now (we worked together long ago). We used to have lunch or breakfast a few times a year to touch base, nothing serious. In May we started dating after mutually...
  17. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Saw this thread in the INFJ forum. We ENFJs need a place to mourn too. This is the thread for you to post tributes or obituaries to lost family members, loved ones, childhood items, pets, what have you. May this be a safe space to grieve. Offering for Grief Look! I have made this bowl for...
