  1. What's my personality type?
    About the dominant functions: I'm pretty sure I have Se dominant and Ti auxiliary as I first experience and then make logical conclusions (as Se-Ti would?). I want to experience literally everything, even if it does not make sense to me. I prefer to observe and then think, not the other way...
  2. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Hi! I have a really good ISTP friend who has had problems with alcohol for 15 years (he's 30 now). At one point he was even using opioids, and he has pretty much tried every drug that exists, but luckily he has quit everything else except for weed and alcohol (only beer and wine, no hard...
  3. Type 7 Forum - The Enthusiast
    Please delete if not allowed. I made a thread in the ISTP topic (Incapable of commitment) and was unsure if posting twice in different groups was allowed. The title is self explanatory. I've never had any sense of commitment or consistency. Nowadays, I can't even hold down friends. Enneagram 7...
  4. What's my personality type?
    hello. i'm a 15F and i'm an ISTP, but i don't feel 100% sure since i need some help to figure it out. i totally see myself being an istp, except for one thing: being emotionally supportive. in real life i suck at it, like really bad. i just don't know what to say since i never cared deal with...
  5. What's my personality type?
    This is about my friend. I’ll try and explain what’s made me so conflicted. 1. at first I thought ISTJ. He is very preoccupied with rote information (young unmitigated Si).Whenever he talks about things, he lists concrete facts. He also shows little Ne ideation or creativity. Most of his ‘wit’...
  6. 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! :)
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
