  1. General Psychology
    Many "NF types" (and probably others as well) are highly sensitive people (HSP). I had fellow highly sensitive man Eddie on the channel to discuss his life as an HSP growing up in the Philippines & working in Nigeria! Some of the topics we discuss: 🟡 Family life and culture in the Philippines 🟡...

  3. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Many ENFPs would be considered highly sensitive people or HSPs. I had HSP coach and fellow HSP man Patrick Kleven on the channel to discuss the areas of life that impact sensitive/"feeling type" men. Some of the questions we answer: 🟡 How to heal from childhood trauma 🟡 How to forget societal...
  4. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    For all you ENFPs out there, what are the challenges of being a highly sensitive extrovert? In this video, I talk about the paradox of being a highly sensitive person and an extrovert, which I believe is the case for the majority of ENFPs. As an ENFP, have you been able to balance your...
  5. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi all. Hope you are all well. If you are from Vancouver please share your experience. As an INFP-HSP, where else would you live in Canada or around the world and why. Will be interesting to see if there is a lot of similar feedback. Bye for now.
  6. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Seems like a good fit on many levels, the only exception being the work culture (but this is starting to improve). What are your thoughts?
  7. What's my personality type?
    I've been reading about MBTI on and off for about 3 years now, and, for some reason, I've been having an extremely difficult time typing myself. If you guys can help at all, I'd really appreciate it. (My enneagram is 5w4) So, originally I got infj, but now I get mostly intj or occasionally...
  8. General Psychology
    Here's a talk given by Highly Sensitive Person author Elaine Aron: The important thing to understand is: while it's true that Highly Sensitive People suffer more than Less Sensitive People from negative stimuli, from bad environments and experiences, etc., they also benefit more than Less...
  9. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Elaine Aron, who authored the book "The Highly Sensitive Person", says that about 20% of humans (and other species) have an innate temperament with high levels of "sensory processing sensitivity", a different way of approaching life when compared with the less sensitive. The four main...
  10. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    Hi there, NFs! I'm just wondering, via this quick 'n dirty poll, how many of us are Highly Sensitive Persons or not. Please do not answer the poll if you are not an NF, but I still welcome you to the discussion. Here is the link to a fast, free, anonymous test if you don't know about your...
  11. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    So I've recently learned about HSPs/"Highly Sensitive Person"s and first of all I definitely think there needs to be more awareness of it as it's a HUGE factor in not just the personality but also the lives of many people, so that's the secondary purpose of this thread. There have probably been...
  12. Blog
    I'm trying to find others like me who are just as confused about their own type, preferably ENTPs who can relate. I know we use all the functions, and some are more dominant than others, but as best as I can tell, my weakest functions are Fe and Si. I say Si because it may be so out of reach its...
  13. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm looking for a bit of help on my type. I've taken the test multiple times, varying my answers based on my mood. I've gotten, in order: INFJ, ISTJ, ISFJ, and INTJ. I relate most to INFJ, ISTJ, and INTJ. I'm almost always aware of what's going on around me and my environment, but I am almost...
  14. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey dear community! Tomorrow I will have my first day of working after a 17 day vacation and I am scared for it. I am depressed and anxious (I don't know if that's imprortant for this). The thing is, I work in a very toxic environment there, people put so much pressure on you and treat you to...
  15. Intro
    Hello everyone! I am new to forums and this is my first one that I have joined. Therefore it might be obvious that I am interested in and curious about personality traits and related subjects(and not very say with how these forums work). I am curious to see how this may turn out. I wonder if...
  16. Myers Briggs Forum
    Okay, so try to to write as though, you were to describe a person, who possesses these 'traits'. I'm Highly Sensitive (HSP) and a High Sensation Seeker (HSS) (I'm much more of a HSP than a HSS though.) I'm enneagram 6. If I have to choose a wing, it would be 6w5. I'm Introverted and a Feeler...
  17. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I've found a probable cause for my stress levels and inability to sit still: sensory overload. Call it HSP or sensory processing or what you will -- to me it's just a difference/quirk -- but external stimuli in the form of sound, touch or motion sends me into a frenzy. Is it true INTJs encounter...
  18. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Whether you are INFP or another type, I need your help and insight. I've just been through my 5th therapy session, and suddenly it went wrong. I am shy, anxious or fearful-avoidant attachment, sensitive (HSP), and have recently been having increased depression, social anxiety, and suicidal...

    Whether you are INFP or another type, I need your help and insight. I've just been through my 5th therapy session, and it's suddenly gone all wrong. I am shy, anxious or fearful-avoidant attachment, sensitive (HSP), and have recently been having increased depression, social anxiety, and...
  20. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello! I'm on a bit of a quest to figure out if there are any other Highly Sensitive INTP's on here. I currently have my profile as INTP, although my T is only slightly higher than my F. A year ago I read The Highly Sensitive Person, and it made a vast difference in my life. I am very...
