  1. Is this inferior Si?

    Cognitive Functions
    When I become sick, I get stressed because I feel like I miss the opportunities. Same thing happens while I'm doing something I don't want. I'm also kinda forgetful about my sickness and I may sometimes use self-destructive matters. While I'm sick, I may become aggressive and angry. And finally...
  2. Real life examples of how each of the 16 types can use the functions in healthy ways?

    Cognitive Functions
    I've read general summaries of healthy/unhealthy versions of the 16 types and have my own speculations about how those can be demonstrated by specific behaviors in real life, but I'm curious to see how other people have experienced healthy versions of any of the 16 types-- specifically, what...
  3. Examples of Healthy and Unhealthy xxTJ? and xxTP?

    Cognitive Functions
    I have a handful of friends and acquaintances that I actually know well enough, and all of them are xxFJs or xxFPs (at least the ones who know their MBTI, the ones who don't I can definitely see the Fe and/or Fi in them). Thus, I believe I have a good understanding of what healthy and unhealthy...
  4. Inferior Functions vs Unhealthy Dominant/Auxiliary Functions??

    Cognitive Functions
    How can you tell whether someone is using an inferior function or an unhealthy version of their dominant/auxiliary function? For example, if someone is emotionally unstable and consistently avoiding certain things in life in order to preserve their state of well-being and keep a happy emotional...
  5. What is your favorite food?

    Health and Fitness
    I really like black beans and cabbage at the moment. But not necessarily at the same time!
  6. [Enneagram Type 4] Type 4 Personal Growth Resources

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    There seems to be only 1 link to "personal growth" for Type 4's in the indexed area of the Type 4 forums. I was wondering if others had their own general advice/input for personal growth for Type 4's, as well as any links to information, or suggestions of resources on the topic? Thanks in...
  7. Healthy or unhealthy ENTJ, or not an ENTJ at all? HELP!

    What's my personality type?
    0. Is there anything that may affect the way you answer the questions? For example, a stressful time, mental illness, medications, special life circumstances (I know you've already answered some of this in your OP). Other useful information includes sex, age, and current state of mind...
  8. [Enneagram Type 6] Attention Sixes! Share your Health and Nutrition knowledge here!

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    As Sixes, we generally value the security of our physical health. I'm guilty of being somewhat of a health nut (or at least very knowledgable about health topics such as exercise and nutrition). I found out that I am gluten intolerant a couple years ago now, and ever since I've been forced to...
  9. I don't like Sugar

    Health and Fitness
    About a 1 year ago I started studying and physically training for applying to the U.S.A. Navy: I completely stopped consuming every thing I could think of that was unhealthy such as chips, soda, ice cream, candy, etc. and I started rigorously exercising every-single-day.~ After about 5 months...
  10. [Enneagram Type 6] Can't relate to "Healthy Type 6" description

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hi guys, in a bit of a pickle. I find that I fit the enneagram six description for the most part, however I fail to relate to the healthy description and levels to the type 6. It explains that as 6's become healthy, they become dedicated to others and can elicit strong emotional responses to...
  11. [Enneagram Type 3] Cheers and apology - to type 3

    Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    Here to present my broadened outlook on a type, a member of which I came to know well in recent times. I have no idea how to create paragraphs on this silly forum. so will break up my text with forward slashes. //////////////////////////////////////////////// Enneagram 3 is a type that I have...
  12. Does Simplicity Lead to a Healthier Life?

    General Psychology
    I've been going through a lot lately and have begun to wonder whether simplifying my life would help me keep my sanity. I've been looking for literature on this very topic and haven't found much. I found a good article: It makes good points, but I want more. Do you guys feel there's a...
  13. [INFJ] INFJ Theory

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I resist my desires with strength when I feel something I desired is wrong. My belief system grows.. and makes things more complicated. Learning to not hold on for example, the whole "Letting the butterfly go" metaphor. In a sense, I see INFJ's simply need to be able to sort through their...
  14. Talking about health/fitness and proper functioning of the body

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Obviously being an N doesn't mean that you have a poor diet, no muscle, and never see the light of day, just as being an S doesn't mean you're a health-nut who loves sports. But in my personal experience it does seem like Ss are more likely to talk about health and fitness more often or at more...
  15. [Enneagram Type 4] Type 4 Wing 5 INFJ experiencing depression

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    This is a bit of an intense thing to write about in a forum but I am currently suffering a difficult period of depression which I am finding hard to shift. I've had three previous episodes of depression in the last ten years (I'm 29) and with various types of talking therapy I managed to...
  16. [ISFP] Healthy ISFPs... Do they exist?

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I keep hearing about this wonderful thing called "Healthy ISFPs". Are there really any of us like that out there? I know I'm not, I take things too personally, my relationships are messes, no one can really tell what's going on with me anymore and I just feel like an overall failure. But this...
  17. [Enneagram Type 4] Connection between being Unhealthy and Mental Illnesses

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hi! Just read the Personality Types book about the Enneagram by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson and a question rose: Is there a link between being unhealthy and mental illnesses? Depression is the simple one, but being bi-polar for the Individualist? or.... Yeah, reading it in second...
  18. SO and I love each other, but not emotionally ready to be in a relatonship

    Advice Center
    Hello! I (20F) am currently in a 10 month relationship with my SO (24M), but I'm just discovering now how we are not ready to be in a committed relationship (we both suffer from depression, deep insecurities, codependency, and privacy issues). However, we love each other very much and want...

    Well... I already have a blog... So... Here it is... All written by an INFP. :)
  20. [INTP] Signs of an Unhealthy INTP

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I think my INTP friend has been giving me a bad impression of INTPs in general. I love my Ti-dom cousins, but I took these bad traits for granted instead of suspecting insecurity or personal problems. 1) Whenever I learn something I think is cool, or I try hard to understand something, my INTP...
