  1. INFJ + ISTP Relationships

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi there! I'm an INFJ in a relationship with an ISTP. If you're an ISTP or INFJ who is friends with or in a relationship with an INFJ/ISTP respectively: What do you guys consider the pros and cons about the other person and what are the pros and cons of the relationship itself? Thanks! :)
  2. Decoding ISTP language - Is he interested in a relationship or no?

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I started seeing this ISTP about 2 months ago. We live in different cities so we've only hung out a few times, but have been texting/talking almost everyday. I recently started getting mixed signals from him (e.g. being hot/cold, texting me less frequently, etc.) so to get a better understanding...
  3. Can you help me finding someone's type?

    What's my personality type?
    Can you help me find someone's type? Hey, this isn't about me, I know my own type, but this person I've been thinking about for quite a while and still haven't found the answer (which bugs me because it's the only family member whose type I don't know for sure). Here's a description that is...
  4. INTP, ENTP, or ISTP? I've scored all of them.

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I am not sure which I would be. I've scored INTP the most and then ISTP next, but I feel like I can be extroverted a lot. I'm like a selective or specific extrovert and a lot of my acquaintances will say I'm extroverted. I also act both introverted and extroverted and have scored 50 50 for e vs...
  5. Fe Users and Enneatype TWO and Ti users and Enneatype FIVE

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Is it hard to find non enneatype TWOs dominant Fe users (ESFJ and ENFJ)? I mean almost every EXFJs that I know about are core TWOs in the enneagram or has it as a wing or a fix in their tritype. I saw one ESFJ identifying with EIGHT, but I don't know her tritype though. It's very hard to not...
  6. Can't type myself

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I can't type myself. I'm confused. I relate to different types but mostly to infps and intps minus the philosophical debate stuff. And I use both cold logic and gut feelings and emotions for my daily thinking and decisions. I'm almost entirely sure I'm intuitive anyway, just confused with all...
  7. [ISTP] Fe Inferior, Social Anxiety. Need for constant reassurance?

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I recently had a situation where I was feeling quite insecure and vulnerable, the type of feeling that eats at you inside. I asked myself, what the hell is this feeling and an answered returned quite casually, "oh that's a constant need for reassurance". Quite an epiphany. A problem that has...
  8. what's my type?

    What's my personality type?
    I'm really in doubt please help me. SCENARIO 1 "Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even...
  9. [ISTP] ISTP Mixed Signals [ISTP-M INTJ-F]

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Im just going to bullet because it seems like ISTPs read the info better/faster that way But I am an INTJ female and I tend to over-explain. - met my ISTP a year and a half ago at a con. He was quiet and didn't speak much but we became acquaintances - Ran into him a month later at another con...
  10. How often do you feel dumb?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    So, I am wondering how long people spend instrospecting...especially for those with lower Te or Ti. How often do you find yourself questioning your own cognitive processes? How often does someone say something that makes you feel like "I should have known that fact", or "How come they know...
  11. IXTP, I think I need help figuring out my true type

    What's my personality type?
    Hello everyoneI've taken around five tests over the last few months, and each of them either give me "INTP" or "ISTP." One of the longest, and I believe the most accurate one, displays my type as "INTP" with 42% on Sensing and 58% on Intuition. I'm still not sure if I'm somewhere in between or...
  12. [ISTP] Do you know an ISTP who doesn't like Mechanics or Engineering?

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I have noticed that most ISTPs go into more Realistic careers. If you know the RIASEC theory, I have been noticing most ISTPs are in that R sector. So my question is: do you know an ISTP who doesn't have interests in that sort of area? I am curious about this. I do think it is a stereotype that...
  13. The Shadow Functions (ISTP's Experience)

    Cognitive Functions
    I should clarify that I'm not a typical ISTP: 1. my Se is relatively underdeveloped because in the past I've been primarily using Ni to (avoid really) navigate the world; 2. I've identified with a string of types before in the following order: INTP, INTJ, INFJ, ISFP, ISTP, ENTP, ENFP, INFP...
  14. MBTI types of characters from characters of Classic Literature:

    Guess the type
    Jane - ISFP - Favorite literary heroine ever, and one of the first ones from fiction I really related to as an ISF/TP myself, though I feel I’d be way more suspicious of Mr. Rochester’s bizarre behaviors and dark secrets than she is, and start badgering him with tons of questions about what the...
  15. [INFP] Relationship advice for INFP's in need!

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So, just starting this. I have a major problem. I fell out of love with my boyfriend and I don't know what to do. It's not like anything was wrong. I just... don't feel it anymore. And I feel so bad. I fell for him really fast, and my heart fluttered for everything he did, but... omg I feel...
  16. Is it possible for SLI's to have a complete trusting relationship void of any secrets

    Socionics Forum
    From what I've read online and from the real life examples I personally know, it seems like SLI's enjoy their secrets and getting away with things that even their partner "knows nothing about". Isn't that lonely? wouldn't you want to have someone you can share everything with? or does that take...

  18. [INFJ] Advice for coping with change and stepping out of my comfort zone

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm back, asking for advice, yet again, haha. So, I'm an INFJ, as you can see. Though for some reason when I take a test, it says that my intuition and sensing are pretty split, which makes sense at times. Anyway, I'm now moving off to college. I have orientation this Thursday, it is a two...
