    Intro
    Hi. New here, mostly just here for fun, don't believe much in personality type kinda stuff(people guess me as anything from ENTJ to ISTP), but yeah. I can't think of much else to say...or rather, can't think of anything I think I want to share just yet. 29, choleric-melancholic temperament(I...
  2. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Personality Type Among Historical Figures by Callison Slater I wanted to find out which personality types were common among historical figures. Using Business Insider's list of the most important historical figures [1], and Personality Database's data regarding likely personality types for...
  3. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey all. I have a book titled Timelines for Everything (a Smithsonian picture encyclopedic book) which documents "13 billion years" of historical events and I'm working towards committing it all (events and dates) to memory in the space of 6 months or less. It just occurred to me how grandiose...
  4. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    I am sure it would be really neat to learn how to think like an Historian. After all, one could read all the Ancient Records and discuss how each of them are distorted and twisted by the religious superstitions and nationalist prejudices of those who wrote them. One could even read different...
  5. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Perhaps, I am a Deist. After all, Christianity-- Roman Catholic Christianity in particular-- is more than a bit anti-Jewish for my taste. Moreover, despite what the Televangelist preachers lie, America was NOT founded as a Christian Nation. For, America was never meant to be either Christian...
  6. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'd love to see people take this philosophy test and then post their results, see how consistent they are! I'd imagine INFJs like me would get very idealist, probably Platonist. Then you get S types which I imagine would be less likely to get strong philosophies, perhaps more...
  7. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    INTJs, We all know the stereotypical INTJ characters in film, (Batman, Sherlock, Most Super-villians etc.) but what characters did you personally in film television or otherwise genuinely see yourself in or relate to. I rarely felt like I could relate to many characters. I could of course in...
  8. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
  9. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Some dictatators like Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and Ayatollah Khomeinei of Iran are said to be INFJ. Even Adolf Hitler is said to have beeen an INFJ. I wonder whether you think about any current or past politican (or someone in a governemental position like a Judge or a royal), who was not a...
  10. Cognitive Functions
    I began thinking about this when I discovered how full of symbolism the Middle Ages were. So here are my thoughts on an era's cognitive functions! All times up to the Middle Ages: Si. You had to know what to do, you had to hold onto the traditions you knew to keep your clan alive. (PS! I'm not...

    Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting not one, but eight of the forefront 'hooligans' of the Anticommunist Rebellion of Braşov 1987. Since last November there are thirty years from the revolt of the workers from Brasov. From that date in history, there is not only the time span of a...
  12. Guess the type
    Sir Francis Bacon - xxTJ (English Scientist, Politician, and Philosopher. Best Guess is INTJ) Aaron Burr - xNTJ (American Founding Father. Not the Musical, I've seen him typed as an ESTP) James Madison - INTx (INTP? American Founding Father. He was described as meek.) Henry Clay - ENFJ? (Famous...
  13. Generation Z Forum
    "Rebellion" has long been association with "youth". What kind of relationship do young people have with authority nowadays? Not necassarily with your parents, teachers, bosses, etc., but the idea of there being a greater power telling you what to do. Do you feel as though there is anyone or...
  14. Generation Z Forum
    Do you think Generation Z and close will be the generation that puts an end to the current status quo to hopefully give us anything that is better and new? Many of us seem to be sick of corporate domination shoved in our faces with stuff like copyright and etc like Fine Brothers(Recently who...
  15. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    An oxymoron, I know, right? But as a history major and an aspiring fiction writer, I've been wondering what ENFPs and INFPs would look like in a really constricting cultural setting. In the modern Western culture, individuality is celebrated, in theory if not always in practice, so nfps are...
  16. General Psychology
    Why was it that they were so tough and I mean literally? 100x or 10x tougher than anybody today or in the early 20th century will ever be? Howcome they were able to continue fighting despite having an arrow(Bodkins especially) stuck through their head/face or having their skull fragmented by a...
  17. Myers Briggs Forum
    Which types do you think were more common during pre-industrial crimes? Would there have been many INFPs? I imagine there would have been high demand for ISFPs due to the need to memorize the world around you to make sculptures + other art?
  18. Guess the type
    What do you think is the great illusionist's type? My first instinct of him seems to be an ENTP, although some other guesses are ENFJ and ESTP.

    This poem is believed to have been written by John McCrae, a Canadian doctor in the trenches of WWI. He penned it on the evening of May 3rd, 1915 after carrying out a funeral service for a friend during the Second Battle of Ypres. The poem was subsequently published in a British magazine called...
  20. Intro
    Hello all, new to this forum, not sure how it will go since I am really terrible with people. I'm a loner and I like being a loner, though also do enjoy being around people with shared interests if they care to keep up an interesting discussion. I'm not one for that small talk jibber jabber, and...
