  1. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I have been through this a few times. In fact I experienced it few minutes ago. You feel intense excitement over some new insight or understanding of a concept or problem.But as you are feeling this emotion a parallel emotion starts to raise steadily, the voice of the emotion sounds something...
  2. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I’ve recently discovered my enneagram type, but it took me a while and I honestly had some resistance towards it, which made me wonder how it was for others – maybe it’s normal to have some initial resistance? Was it easy to figure out your type? Or did you – like me – have some resistance...
  3. Cognitive Functions
    V1 What is this: I will try to rewrite function stacks and I will provide short function definitions, that I think could make more sense. Why I am writing this: I think, that there are mistakes in stack and function understanding. Are you Ready? if yes, then let's GO!!! We all know how...
  4. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    I have posted this on the INTJ forums to get the insight from the other side but I'd like some help from my own at this point. I started seeing an INTJ in the spring. We connected quickly and became very close and emotionally attached throughout the summer. We don't live in the the same city...
  5. Sex and Relationships
    I started seeing an INTJ in the spring. We connected quickly and became very close and emotionally attached throughout the summer. We don't live in the the same city and ultimately want different things (he wants kids). So we ended things. This seemed to be harder on him than I would have...
  6. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I started seeing an INTJ in the spring. We connected quickly and became very close and emotionally attached throughout the summer. We don't live in the the same city and ultimately want different things (he wants kids). So we ended things. This seemed to be harder on him than I would have...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So I've been lurking in the INFJ sub-forum and reading fellow INFJs posts, and I can't help but think that what they write seems very poetic, mature, kind, and basically very, very beautiful writing style. Whereas my posts are... childlike... and I'm wondering if this is because I'm young. Or is...
  8. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Feel free to post your questions to ENTPs on absolutely anything here. All types are welcome. Yes, specialised threads exist to keep order, but hey, this is ENTP land so let's keep things Ne-friendly ;) @ ENTPs: Thanks for helping me provide insight! Please keep sarcastic answers to a...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Thought is appetizing, and so is complexity. Candy is pretty appetizing too, so have some mental candy. This thread is meant to provide tiny tidbits of wisdom, through quotes that inspire insight/provoke thinking. I will also be very happy to find a quote based on a theme, if you request it...
  10. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello all, fairly new to the forums but I've been somewhat familiar with the MBTI for some time now. I met someone that I'm interested in and am trying to figure out something very specific about her, so I'm hoping somebody here could give me some much appreciated insight. As far as I can tell...
  11. 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...
  12. General Psychology
    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...
  13. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I vote infjs, notn personal! :P Simply based on experience reading posts from different users.
  14. What's my Enneagram type?
    Greetings to a multitude of wonderful posters. I have lurked and lurked and lurked among you and your glorious wisdom for a little over a year now, more or less obsessively, trying to find my Enneagram type. I adore Enneagram. It has shaped my conception of the world, clarified it, and brought...
  15. What's my Enneagram type?
    Huge thank you in advance for any help here: I'm coming up with different types ranging from 2, 4, 6, to 9 (maybe I'm off still). I'm pretty confident I'm an INFP (occasionally scoring borderline INFJ), as I've taken that test and gotten that answer numerous times. Once during that time I got...
  16. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    INFP is often rated as one of the most intelligent types. Despite the fact that our Te is our weakest function (as a generality). Of course a lot of intelligence comes from Ne too. I know feelers aren't necessarily less intelligent than thinkers (if you can truly measure intelligence), but I...
  17. Blog
    I've been told I am a scary person. The reasons for this opinion vary by person, yet, one aspect seems to coincide. They comment on my "scary intelligence". Whatever that meant, I thought. When I ask, genuinely trying to understand what they mean, I get varied responses that seem pulled out of...
  18. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I've been currently reading about "Involution" which seems to be the growth of your inner self. It is mentioned that there are seven basic steps from self awareness to self mastery one of which is Self Love. I've noticed that I've only gotten over that hurdle once and it wasn't a conscious...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Just curious- speaking as an individual of INFP temperament- I find I am constantly seeking , absorbing, and processing information..... Be it meta cognition ( gaining personal insight), or gathering information via web or books.... I would surmise it's my FI and ultimately P interactions at...
