  1. How to let go of your core personality's emotion and change/heal your Enneagram type

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi all, This post is about how to identify the core pillar emotion that the rest of your personality type flows from, and to help you begin the process of letting go of that core identity emotion so that you can either move from an unhealthy stress state to a more healthy state, or even...
  2. [INFP] Stubborn, selfish Fi, wouldn't compromise which hurt family...thoughts?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Yeah I'm pretty selfish. So is everyone else in their own way. Humans are selfish creatures. But yeah I was being particularly selfish. But do I regret my actions? We will simply have to see in the future because I see the different perspectives. I like to think this scenario is sort of a Fi vs...
  3. [INFP] Top 3 things you fantasize about on the daily as an INFP?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey there INFP friends! I was curious, what are the top 3 things you fantasize about on the daily to see and compare how all our minds work... My fantasizes are around... 1.) Future potential romantic relationships with various people from my past and that I know now to basically guess who my...
  4. [Enneagram Type 4] What makes you think people should obsess over you?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I came to this realization while responding to a different thread. Fours need people to be obsessed with them, because they are obsessed with themselves. No matter how low a four's self esteem is, there is still a "self" that we nurture and care for inside of ourselves. I believe that even...
  5. [INFJ] (indecisiveness) vs. (idealism and perfectionism)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Which one has been more problematic for you? I read somewhere that INFPs are frustrated by indecisiveness and INFJs by idealism and perfectionism, do you see any difference between them?
  6. To INFP or to ENFP?

    What's my personality type?
    Greetings and salutations, I've been familiarizing myself with MBTI for over a year now, and I've consistently struggled with whether I am ENFP or INFP. Nearly every time I take the test, I am ENFP. However, when interacting with other ENFPs or researching ENFP characters, I find myself under...

    Hello, I’m new to scholarship, but recently I read so much on that topic. Because next year I want to get my scholarship … I only wanted to give you some great actual tips, that work. Unfortunately there is so much information on that topic and people will get confused. So many organization...
  8. Experiment No. 2: Do You Have An Idealised Way Of Seeing Yourself?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I know what you're thinking- what!? This experiment is likely only to apply to NFs or ESFXs and even then, probably only really fits type 4s...possibly 2s! Okay so maybe some of you aren't thinking that. But to be honest, this experiment, I'm hoping to dig a little deeper. Everyone has an...
  9. Which MBTI type questions identity when under stress?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    All in the title my friend.
  10. [Enneagram Type 9] Self-assertion and identity in mature 9s

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    I have recently gotten acquainted to an older man whose Enneagram type I can't quite pinpoint. I believe he may either be a 9 or a 4 (almost definitely an INFP). He seems to have a good grasp of what he wants and his identity. I was wondering if 9s develop such a sense of self as they mature and...
  11. [INFJ] Help meeeee; I joined an infj fb page and it was one of my worst ideas ever

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Quick question: Do you care a lot about being understood? So I'm new here. Heck, this sounds petty. I'm not sure this post will even be seen and I certainly hope joining this page will not be as bad of an idea as joining that group. I guess I need someone to rant to, someone who can conversate...
  12. [INTP] Do others see you the way you see yourself?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This is my first post here and if I am in the wrong category then please, mods, let me know. I understand that this is a little bit of a 'self understanding' and slightly personal post but I am hoping that other INTP's will have a similar situation to bring to the table. Here is my situation: I...
  13. Ditzy and Hyper INTJ--Does it Exist?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hello, I am new to this site! This is my first post. It seems to be well-known on the Internet and in these sort of communities that the INTJ stereotype is that they are rational, their intelligence is higher than the average, they enjoy studying, and that they do not express emotions or...
  14. What would you like others to base your identity on?

    General Psychology
    Identities change over time, circumstances and environment. E.g. at home your identity could be your parents' honey, at work your identity is boss/staff, at a shop you become a customer etc. So what would you like others to base your identity on? Please rearrange the following from the most...
  15. Trauma and Personality Changes

    Hi! I'm new here and just a novice at Personality Profiles and Types. I joined the community here because everyone seems so well-informed, the threads are very interesting and a veritable fountain of information and opinions. Basically, I wanted to ask people for their opinions on how...
  16. [Enneagram Type 4] "Live Authentically"

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I was just watching an interview with Ellen Degeneres and Oprah Winfrey, and they repeatedly spoke about living authentically. It got me thinking about how 4's are often called the "identity seekers", that our persona and sense of self seems very fragile and even intangible to us, and it's one...
  17. [Enneagram Type 4] Fantasy Self & Fantasy Life

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I just recently started learning about the Enneagram, and discovered I'm a 4. I've been reading up on it, and came across statements about 4's often creating a fantasy version of themselves, and I nearly started crying... "...cultivating a Fantasy Self—an idealized self-image which is built up...
  18. INFP or ESFP?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi! First of all - I'm writing this thread because I'm trying to help my youngest sister. She's been through many hardships the last few years which has affected her view of herself. She became interested in MBTI to better understand her own way of thinking, which was why she took an online...
  19. [INFP] Is this typical of INFPs?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So... Are anything of the following behaviors and mindsets typical of INFPs? If not which type does it sound like? - The fear of actually being an INFP. Assuming I'm going to be a failure based off of the statistics of INFPs. - Becoming annoyed around others who exhibit negative INFP behavior...
  20. [INTP] The Kindergartner That Stumped Me.

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I will attempt to maintain my brevity. The other day, after school, I walked to the elementary school building because my mom works there. School wasn't out at the elementary though, so I waited outside the school for my mom. They let out, and a few kids just gawked at my appearance and passed...
