introversion

  1. Not drawing enough attention to myself at work, ugh...

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I recently had an enlightening conversation today with a co-worker. He informed me that I had nearly lost my job because I had been too standoffish and was perceived as being a slacker. He also noted that having worked closely with me that I did work pretty hard, but that I failed to draw...
  2. [INFP] Do you feel your tendency to dream limits you from participating in life?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This is my first thread and second post. Let me know if I am doing anything wrong here. I was reading a thread on the INFP forum about 'how to live life', with most responses focused on being more involved in life, taking on challenges and confronting fears, basically seeing everything as an...
  3. What is the type of an INXX?

    What's my personality type?
    One year ago, I did 16personalities.com test, which indicates i'm INTP. Recently, perhaps, I have been doing a lot of other MBTI tests, which leaves me to INFJ, INFP and INTJ. Ok, I think ExI and SxN variables are already been defined,but in relation to others (FxT and JxP)? How do I differ...
  4. Extravert forced to be introvert & vice versa?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    What are your experiences when you were an introvert forced to socialize and maybe even thought you were an extravert? Or maybe you're an extravert who doesn't have friends (me) for several reasons and had to learn to be alone? I think the first example is more common in US and Canadian...
  5. [INTP] Friend drains my energy and is making me sick

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I have a friend, who is really important to me and who I like. He's an ENTP if that matters. Unfortunately every time i spend time with him my energy gets drained to the max. Everytime i leave his house i feel exhausted, can barely "function" and feel like short before passing out. I also feel...
  6. Oxytocin's Fingerprint in Personality Traits and Regional Brain Volume

    Science and Technology
    I was reading an article that said that Oxytocin makes people more extroverted and less fearful and anxious and also correlates negatively with amygdala-hippocampal complex volume. So MRI scans can be used to make a guess at personality. If so, then drugs can change a person's personality...
  7. INTJ tend to be of the olfactory temperament, while INFJ are of visual temperament

    General Psychology
    I have noticed that INTJ people tend to be of the olfactory temperament, and INFJ tend to be of the visual temperament. This might have been caused by INTJ's use of Ni coupled with Te-Fi, while INFJ use Ni coupled with Fe-Ti. People of the visual temperament tend to be visionaries, while those...
  8. [ENFP] Aside From The Obvious Extroversion, How Are ENFPs Different From INFPs?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Enfps and Infps thought process can seem quite similar if you were to just look at it from the cognitive standpoint. One of the most defining qualities from an Mbti perspective would be the extroversion. But what if you had an ENFP with a relatively low E percentile? Differentiating them would...
  9. [ENTP] What percentage of your time do you spend alone?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    They say that ENTPs are the most introverted extrovert. This is mostly attributed to the ENTPs fascination with the realm of ideas and I think that this could lead to a lot of alone time. This is really just one variable of introversion-extroversion, but it can be demonstrative of a lot if we...
  10. [INFP] Can any INFP relate to this?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone! I was feeling a little down recently and i was writing some lines about that. And I would be very interested if any INFPs can relate somehow to this and what you are doing if you find yourself in these type of situations: The constant yearning for…SOMETHING! can drain an INFP...
  11. [INFP] How to always be socially confident and comfortable?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone! I have always been a person with a very small circle of friends, but that was ok for me because all my friends always have been very good friends and around them I can be myself and I'm also talkative and open around them. But every time when there's the situation that i get to...
  12. INFJ: A Jungian Cognitive Function Analysis

    Blog
    INFJ, or Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judger, is a label borrowed from MBTI nomenclature and now applied to the Jungian Cognitive Function set {Ni, Fe, Ti, Se}. Dominant: Introverted iNtuition (Ni) "I just like putting all of life's little dreams in perspective. The real world is inside my...
  13. [INFP] Define "introverted"

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So I just started thinking about introversion in terms of how different people define it. Like when taking personality quizzes, they'll often ask if you're outgoing or talkative and use that answer as a means of defining your extroversion. The same can be said for when they ask you if you're shy...
  14. INTP/ENTP? any ideas?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Hey guys! I'm a newbie here. I've been learning about this whole MBTI thing for quite a long time now but still don't know what my type is. Hope you can help me a bit and thank you for devoting your time to read and think about my post! Okay so I'm pretty sure about the Ti and Ne, they're both...
  15. Introvert, but not "The Quiet One"?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Does anyone else relate to this? I am definitely not "the quiet one" in a group. I have never had problems speaking up in class, at youth group at church, etc. On the other hand, I've known some very extroverted individuals who would be extremely chatty and basically bouncing off the walls...
  16. Ambiverts: what type are you?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm just curious if the people who classify themselves as 'ambiverts' are more likely to be a certain type. I know xNFPs seem to classify themselves as ambiverts often, but do other types do too?
  17. Introversion Explained (from Kit's perspective).

    Myers Briggs Forum
    So, I have seen many, MANY misconceptions about both Introverts and Extroverts. However, Introverts seem to be the most misunderstood. Lets start off with what Introverts aren't. (or do not have to be.) They are not.. Shy Loners Untrusting Reserved Now let's talk about what Introverts can be...
  18. [INTJ] Leisure time.

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    *First of all, sorry for my English. It's not my native language, though I'm still trying to improve it. I like to stay at home listening to music, playing videogames, watching movies, reading books/articles, and just chilling out. I'm sure a lot of you do like those activities too, but what...
  19. Fi vs Fe

    Cognitive Functions
    Fe - Wants people to like them even if that means allowing people to have an inaccurate perception of who they are as an individual. Fi - Wants people to have an accurate perception of their individuality, regardless of what people think about that. Fi - Wants people to view them as they view...
  20. Introverted Anxiousness or Social Anxiety Disorder ???

    General Psychology
    I need to attend a wedding tomorrow (the whole family is going, and my mother will not sit peacefully if I decline to go). At this moment I am having excessive anxiety. It is a strong uneasy feeling- I feel others are forcing me to go, I will have to dress up on others demand (my mother, ESFJ)...
