  2. [INFJ] What MBTI type would you want your child to be? Would you try to influence it?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I love being an infj and I think I would want any child of mine to be infj or intj because I think that's how I would get along with them/understand them/be able to support them the most (and think of all the interesting conversations we could have! Like I have with my infj/intj parents), but...
  3. [INTP] How much do you let feelings/emotions influence you?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    As every human has feelings/emotions (yes, you too!) I'd like to know how much you really can put them aside when making decisions. And how much do they influence you nevertheless? How important is it for you to consider them in your decisions? Do you have certain values or principles which...
  4. [INTP] What MBTI type are your parents?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hey everyone, I'm just generally interested in what type or parents or siblings are. I'm kind of wondering if they influenced your personality to be an INTP (not purposely of course).

I define a political asset as: "An individual with (mainly political, influential, or professional) value that another individual (you or I)...
  6. [Enneagram Type 9] Has anyone ever honestly diffused your anger?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    I'm wondering if it's possible for a nine to have their anger completely diffused after getting pissed? (I'm not talking about situations where you suppressed the anger) For example if something got you really angry and then a person came along and said something and suddenly you didn't feel...
  7. [INTP] Aversion to being manipulative

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I know that all people sub-consciously manipulate others, regardless of the means of communication, all the time. That's not what I have a problem with. I have an aversion to the intentional and implicit manipulation others as well as an aversion to learning ways in which other's can be...
  8. What are some influences that helped to shape your personality type?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Perhaps there are some innate factors to consider, but a lot of times our environment has a lot of influence on who we are. What do you personally feel helped shape you to be who you are with respect to your personality type? I'll go first. I'm relatively new to this whole MBTI thing, but so...
  9. [INFP] What are you grateful for?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists

  10. [ISTJ] Do you enjoy having "power" over others?

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Hello fellow ISTJs! I got this idea from the ENFP forum. Anyway, I was wondering if you guys like having control /influence /power over others? By that I just mean in general. It can be work, and relationship, etc. Basically, people will do what you want them, whether you achieve that...

  12. [ENTP] Not sure how to explain this one. Extremities?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Do other ENTPs ever feel like the only thing that keeps you from going to a certain extreme is being around people who are even more extreme in that particular regard? Sometimes I think the only reason I'm as stable as I am (meh...) is because I've been around enough people whose behavior made...

    What I mean by this is, have you ever been watching a movie or a TV show with your friends or family and have both been laughing at it :laughing: and then you stop yourself and realize it's not really funny to you at all, like you're just laughing because you noticed the other person was...
  17. [ENFP] Other's Influence

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I'm going to respectfully request that this conversation stay ENFP only. I'm looking for thought processes on ENFPs and their derivatives without outside influence. Assertion: It's impossible for an ENFP to gain self-confidence. All confidence comes from outside appreciation of any skill or...
