  1. What's my personality type?
    Hi, while I'm new to PerC, I've lurked on some threads here before registering. Anyway, I think a lot of trouble with typing myself comes from knowing whether or not I do/have done things because of my upbringing or circumstances or if I'm doing something because I'm naturally inclined to it. I...

  4. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Do you ever get the feeling that some people don't want to be helped? Like they just want to sit around and whine about their problems all day long and never actually do anything to progress through and past them? I recently read an article about the ever elusive iN function that I relate to...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I was just wondering what other INFJ's were like as teenagers. I read a lot about others being very quiet and bookish. I was like this until my teenage years. I grew up in a pretty emotionally unstable environment and from 12-16 I was pretty darn manipulative - albeit in a quiet sort of way -...
  6. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    G’day everyone! Please read this as someone who’s an INFP and is reaching out to connect with others of all types (introverts, extroverts, feelers, judgers, perceivers, thinkers, intuitives, sensors). I like to connect meaningfully and deeply, but sometimes find that hard to do in the day to...
  7. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I am still "growing up" i am 13 years old, and i am in middle school. I am also an INTJ. I am interested in topics that don't appeal to most people my age. For example, Psychology. I don't have very many friends, but i'm perfectly fine with that. I spend alot of time alone, reading and playing...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    This isn't really an MBTI related questions. Just seeking advice and answers of whoever is willing to share. Let me start of with that I am a particularly young INFJ (18) and I wouldn't consider myself so fully matured considering there is so much else out there to experience and learn. And...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I just need to get some things off my chest. Care to give it a read if you'd like, for whatever reason. Maybe some of you can relate, but hopefully not. Despite the first paragraph, I really don't want any of you guys to feel the way that I do. When I get angry, or upset, or when I say things...

    The Price of knowledge Innocent like a child you go, with light steps on fields of grass. Your face is caressed by warming sunshine before you heard the whispers of the Snake Like in trance you listen to his silken words, you fall for his temptations as you pluck the apple from the tree...
  11. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey everyone! So... I've got a question for you. Well, actually... scratch that. A few questions. They've been burning in my mind lately and I'd be really interested in hearing your responses! I'd like to know what it was like for you growing up as an INFP. Each of us have a different journey...

    Growing up is a hard thing to do. I never liked changes, when I was younger. I always tried to prevent myself from chaning. Weird to say it, but I had the stubborness of a child, with which I tried to keep myself from changing. I guess it was, because, somewhere I liked who I was, despite my...

    Lets see if being moved around when young has any correlation to how we make and keep friends. Please include MBTI if you would. I moved 13 times in 11 years as a kid, and had alchoholic parents, so tough making/keeping friends. I ended up having one main friend at a time, one in particular...

    I'm finally pursuing what I've always wanted to do and I'm not letting fear hold me back. It's wonderful that I've finally reached this point in my life where I can go after what I want without feeling paralyzed by fear of failure or fear of not appeasing others. I'm only 23, so I guess it's...
  16. Advice Center
    I'm a bit concerned that this post may be asking too much of the PerC community, or that it is too personal. Oh well, here goes. So I am almost going to finish high school, and it has recently just hit me, like a truck, that I will be an adult soon - no parents, no more rules to follow, no more...
  17. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Hey guys! I wanted to know if any of you out there knew of any ways that an ISTJ might be able to grow to make his personality type better? What are some weaknesses that might come along and how can you overcome them? Remember, ISTJs can accomplish this by setting goals to do so :D
  18. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hello! I am new to the forum and looking for help... I have been an ENFP for most of my life but lately have felt different. I think it's the P/J that's changing... I feel like I HAVE to be more structured in order to survive in the "real world", but it's boring. I'm miserable... I miss being...
  19. What's my personality type?
    Hello! I have always been an ENFP but have felt different lately. As ENFPs grow up do they have to become more J or T to survive the "real world"? I'm facing all kinds of challenges and I'm being forced to question my perspective on the world. I don't like it and I don't like who I'm...
