    i've been seeing this guy for almost 6 months now. everything is really great! tons of affection, love notes, he never gave up on me when i was being difficult in the beginning of our relationship. he would drop everything just to be by my side if i were in some sort of trouble. but he keeps...
  2. [INTJ] What makes you insecure?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I want to know what make you personally, professionally, or otherwise insecure? For me it is all the normal things INTJs are supposed to not like, but I also have some of my own that I work through like: Being late-EVER Being complimented when I don think I deserve it Asking for help when I...
  3. [ENFJ] I need your help!

    ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    So my brother is an ENFJ. He acts like an awesome ENFJ to everyone. Except when he's feeling insecure he can be a really big freakin' jerk! I've basically felt the brunt of his insecurities throughout my whole life. He always knows EXACTLY how to make me feel bad. And he would always try to...
  4. What is wrong with me?

    General Psychology
    I'll get down to business - I get itchy as fuck in public. And I don't mean a little itch at the bridge of your nose - I mean my face feels prickly, my arms feel like I should rip them out and my fingers just get knotted and shit. After a year or so of this happening I realised it only happened...

  6. [INTP] INTPs and Fi/Si/Whatever?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Did you ever felt insecure? About a situation or something, like you couldn't be sure of the results, neither you could foresee it, because there weren't any means to (or you couldn't see them). Is this low Fi? or Si? I dunno, it's just strange. The thing is, in these kind of situations, did...
  7. Why are many Fi users so self-conscious?

    Cognitive Functions
    My apologies if there is already a thread about this, but I still gotta know. By self-conscious, I mean "worrying about screwing up" or "being out of place" sort of thing. It's not something that struck me as a part of Fi until now. And also, how does this self-consciousness differ from Fe...
  8. [INTP] Why is it so hard for INTPs to admit their emotions/ feel any?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Most of the people I have met don't mind talking about the way they truly feel, or being all emotional. It's so upsetting and somewhat unattractive when people are like this; can they not see how vulnerable they are when they do this? For me, talking about how I feel is embarrassing, and...
  9. [INTP] INTPs and Trusting Others Emotionally

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    When an INTP is in a romantic relationship, do they find it difficult to open up and allow themselves to feel romance? Are they afraid of feeling the vulnerability associated with strong attachment? I read somewhere that a healthy romantic relationship is the only place where Fe can be safely...
  10. [ENTJ] The Story Of A Failure - An ENTJ's desperate attempt to conquer the world

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hello My fellow Personality Cafe members. I'm new here, and this is my first post. This is my story. All I'm trying to accomplish is to succeed in my life. [Before we begin let me say that I took the MBTI test first time around 3 years ago with the aid of a professional career consultant at my...
  11. [INFP] You're favorite qoutes, regarding stupid and grossly insecure people.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I come across them everyday, people who put on this great facade that they have all the answers and that they are, "The shit." But I know that they are dying inside. I wish I could tell them how it really is, and that it's not necessary (and damaging) to pretend that they are this unmitigated...
  12. Venting/life questions

    Blog
    So I just finished my first year of university. Everyone I talked to had told me how many people I would meet, how much fun it would be, etc. I actually found it kind of hard to just go out of my way to say hi, or strike up a conversation with a stranger in class or anywhere on campus really. My...
  13. [INFJ] What makes you Insecure/Secure?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Not sure how popular this post will be considering nobody likes to talk about them, especially INFJ's. But post what makes you insecure followed by a healthy security factor. Either in yourself or as a whole. I'll start: *Posting my insecurities makes me insecure or does it? *I find security...
  14. Insecure Looks

    Sex and Relationships
    I think I look pretty pecuilar, no matter what anyone says. So, I was wondering what other people think when they look in the mirror and if it affects how you interact with your interest? I'd say it does a bit with me, to be honest. Yet ultimately, I eventually get over it after the first few...
  15. Insecure ESTP in my swimteam what should I do?

    ESTP Forum - The Doers
    There is this ESTP on my swim team who is always insults me in a playfull manner. I get this vibe that he is very insecure about himself and he needs some norishment maybe a pat on the back or, if I could word it perfectly, for him to just be himself and that I will accept him for the way he...
