  3. [ENTJ] ENTJ - Yearning for something greater

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Yearning for something greater is a curse that many of us are intimately familiar with. A storm rages within us all and threatens to destroy us from within if it is not either satiated or tamed. A mirror into the heart of those who thirst for thunder and great deeds. Those that crave adventure...
  4. Which types are most likely to test wrong?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I know the Myers-Briggs tests usually aren't the most accurate, but for a lot of people who don't have the time or desire to get into the intricacies, it's the first option. I'm introspective to the point where it's hard to lie to myself, even when I want to, so I got my type pretty much right...
  5. INXP 5w4 4w5 Confused About Type

    Hi everyone! I'm glad I found this forum. This is going to be long. Sorry! I fell down the Enneagram rabbit hole yesterday and have been researching and thinking a lot about my personality since then.

    How about some multi-type system self-analysis from all you 9s out there? MBTI, Socionics, cognitive functions, Kiersey, you name it. Go!
  7. question too complicated (messy feelings, advice, trust in unconscious, relationship)

    General Psychology
    Hello! Feel free to redirect me to another forum, I don't know if this is the right one. Do you know when you are watching a movie/series and there's a psychologist who ask an ambiguous question/says an ambiguous statement and the patient answer it with a "self advice"(he thinks the psychologist...
  8. [Enneagram Type 4] How do you guys learn to feel less shame?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I ask this in regards to confronting emotions that you may be feeling at the moment, or attempt to resolve pent-up emotions associated with past events.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    What is at the heart of the INFP? What are their weaknesses? Emotionally, what causes an INFP to thrive? ***More so, what are the intentions of the INFP when it comes to loving another human being?*** Let me answer some of these, from my INFP perspective: At the heart of me, is love. Or...
  10. I am Me

    Who am I? I am me. I am not who I want to be or I would not want to be them. I may well be who I don't want to be or I'd not have the experience to know that being that person is not optimal. But regardless of who am not, who am I now? I am me. No matter how much I struggle with this, the...

  12. [Enneagram Type 9] How did you find self-awareness?

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    Hey 9s, Just a late night thought: how did you get on the path of self-awareness? What situation caused you to step back and take a look at the reasons you do the things you do? What was the most difficult aspect to face? It seems to me like self reflection / introspection doesn't come easily...
  13. [INFP] Is outrospection the answer to our problems?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    You have probably heard of the word 'introspection' before, and as an introvert probably thougth that it must be important to you. It seems the concept of 'introspection' however, is outdated and there is a whole new philosophy outrospection; the polar opposite of introspection. According to...
  14. [Enneagram Type 4] Introspection

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    What do you think introspection does to Fours? For me introspecting while writing it down is therapeutic. And introspecting just for the heck of it is draining. I used to get lost in it but with meditation and the need to study regularly it does not capture me as often.
  15. People Confuse Me or Why De-chan Can't Do Friendship Worth a Sh!t

    No, really. Just…I can’t seem to get this whole “friendship” thing right in any respects. Sometimes I don’t know if I actually really care about anyone at all. I mean, I know that’s not true, but it just bothers me that my relationships are the way they are. I want freedom, but sometimes...
  16. Impression #18

    So, I really can't call this thing a diary anymore, can I? If I take two days off from posting in it? I have no idea...but I do like the word "Impression" better than "Diary Entry" sounds more, ideal, or something. But yeah..the interview was very short, and they said that they would call...
  17. Diary Entry #15

    I honestly had a really great day today. Things are looking up, and I feel really hopeful for once. I had been going down this spiral, and then I told myself to "shut up, and quit being so mean" to myself, and it's like I realize that I'm actually not a horrible person after-all. :laughing...
  18. [Enneagram Type 7] 7s and introspection

    Type 7 Forum - The Enthusiast
    First post, here goes! :kitteh: I'm a 7w6 with sx - I definitely really relate to the description, it's pretty much spot-on for me. Lately, I've noticed how little thinking I do in my day to day life. As a 7, I generally bounce from activity to activity and continue to quell my boredom...

    General Psychology
    And how does this differ from your perception of the manner in which you are perceived by others? (I'm talking about the real world, not the cyber one)
  20. [INTJ] Accumulation, or Sometimes I wish I didn't exist.

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    This is not a suicidal note and I'm definitely not depressed. This is out of curiosity. So, there are those moments, which I call "accumulation". When I suddenly "see" the list of my wrong strategies at work, the list of unfulfilled promises in private life, the crowd of intentionally and...
