  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi, it's me again asking for more advice on interaction ^^' Basically, I've noticed I find it extremely difficult to deal calmly and logically with a person when they are 'narrow-minded' - as in, someone who will listen to other people's point of view during an argument/discussion, but not even...
  2. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I have two INTJs as friends (one male, one female) and they both seem to have a strong aversion to loud or crowded places, (more so than I do and that's saying something). They also both seem anxious about how they're coming off to other people for example they'll notice when someone's judging...
  3. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but anyway. For those of you new to the term, HSP stands for Highly Sensitive Person -- which means someone who has a more sensitive central nervous system, and tends to posess a higher sense of awareness than the general population. HSP's are...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I am an INFJ, an HSP, and my enneagram is 4 with a wing toward 5. All of these are often described as "very sensitive." So I am very, very, very sensitive, apparently! :laughing: Is anyone else all three of these? What tips and tricks do you apply to manage your sensitivity and propensity to...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Do other INFJs have a tendency to disappear off the face of the Earth for periods of time? I'm honestly not sure why INFJs are known as "the most extroverted introvert" because I truly can not describe in words how easily I am drained by social interaction. I will want to spend time with...
  6. Intro
    I'm Wanderflower. 23 years old. I'm a highly sensitive person (aka an empath). I was normally an ISFP, but I think I'm becoming more of an INFP. I'm a 4w5. That's really all I know personality-wise. Oh, I have Asperger's syndrome! My favorite band is Elsiane. They are an indie-experimental band...
  7. What's my Socionics type?
    I'm trying to understand the differences between Myers-Briggs and socionics in order to determine my socionics type. In Myers-Briggs, I identify very closely as ISTP. Even more so when I account for my sensitive traits (highly sensitive person, as defined by Elaine Aron) and specifically...
  8. Blog
    So, I tend to cry when someone is irritated at me or yells at me. Today, while starting to practice my driving, my father got irritated and yelled at me in the driveway, which made me irritated back, and so he yelled even louder and I turned off the car and ran back to the house crying. It has...
  9. Blog
    So yesterday my mind was frantic. I learned that I was an HSP, but I was very skeptical about it, about the theory, about its usefulness in my life. I wrote a new thread on the 4 forum about it to try to elicit some answers, but I still wanted more. I wanted to understand it fully. I knew...
  10. Blog
    I'm just sharing my thoughts about being sensitive, wondering if others struggle to unwind, and I also mention the terms HSP and ASMR. (www.hsperson.com) http://www.vice.com/read/asmr-the-good-feeling-no-one-can-explain
  11. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Evening, This would be my first thread in months. My previous threads would be quite long ago. But the thing I wanted to discuss today is called Highly Sensitive Person. I want to discuss this because I (and my peers) have diagnosed that I have HSP. As I wonder around on Personality Cafe to...
  12. Sex and Relationships
    So for anyone with any orientation give me your experience on being with a person who was a HSP? I'm a HSP and I'm just curious what was your experience like with one?
  13. Blog
    So....I had a pretty horrible dream last night. In the dream I was pregnant..pretty far along (like 7-8 months), and I was looking forward to my due date. Well, something happened, and I had to sleep at a hospital/Doctor's house. When I woke up, I felt different, and I saw a guy (I think he...
  14. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Your parents sound so much like mine! ESTP mother, motivated, dominant powerful. INTJ father – traditional, distant and not too understanding. Both of them don't understand me; they're proud of me in many ways, but they never understand me, my feelings or desires. My mother is still upset with...
  15. Intro
    Hey guys! Just wanted to introduce myself here, since I signed up last night. I'm in my twenties and have long been interested in all sorts of personality tests. That said, I wasn't really aware of the complexities of the MBTI system until I started poking around on these forums. I've...
  16. Blog
    So, I just found out/got the gumption to create a blog on this thing. (Well, I know that I had a blog, I just didn't know if I wanted to post in it.) It actually might help to have a blog on here, considering I actually am on this site a fair bit of time. Right now, I'm contemplating going to...
  17. What's my personality type?
    I was wondering if you guys could help me figure it out, I used this questionnaire but looking over it I'm thinking it's still a pretty though call... 1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type? -I kept getting different results and usually the S or F were like 1%. I'm...
  18. Intro
    Hi, I'm an ISTJ who has learned in January about my trait of being a highlysensitive person. My resource for this is the only book on the subject called,The Highly Sensitive Person and there's a short video by the author explaining what an HSP is Youtube titled: The Highly Sensitive Person: An...

  20. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I found something out about myself today: This- The Highly Sensitive Person - is me. I had no idea that existed before today, but now that I know, I feel like I'm trying to go back through everything else in my life and view it through this new lens. So much of my life is explained through...
