jealousy

  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi! So, I (ENFP Female) was dumped over 5 months ago by an ESFP Male. As an Intuitive, I continue to overthink our relationship... I thought I might finally give up hope, but then my ESFP began to show (what I think) are not-so-subtle signs of jealousy. With that, what are common signs of...
  2. General Psychology
    I'm a very jealous person. I'm jealous of people's looks and achievements (can't even be happy for them most of the time). Mostly I feel like I'm lover/friend-jealous though (a friend hangs out with another person or a person I like gives someone a heartfelt compliment and I'm instantly hurt)...
  3. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi guys! So, I was wondering if any other INFPs are super competitive? I don't mean that I want to be the best in my field or win at games or anything, but in class I am extremely competitive. I'm a media student and we do quizzes all the time in class, and I always work super hard at them...
  4. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hello, so I'm an INFP female and I met this ENFJ guy on Tinder.. I fantasized about meeting someone with my ''theoretical ideal match type'' for a while now and it happened quite unexpectedly. It clicked immediately and I really thought I had found that deep connection I was craving for so long...
  5. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello, everyone. By the title of this thread you probably already know what my situation is, but here it is in detail: (btw, if it is of any constelation, I'm a 17 year old female INFP) Alright, well, I really (really) like this INTP guy from my school, but I honestly don't know whether he likes...
  6. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello, I'm currently dating an INTJ and I am also friends with someone who I'm pretty certain is one as well. About a month ago my friend told me he has been depressed lately and after a little coaxing he let me know it was because he was feeling lonely and at 18 he's never has a girlfriend...
  7. General Psychology
    I have always struggled to understand why (some) people feel jealous and/or envious of others. In most cases it's perhaps mild enough to not be an issue for either party but in other circumstances it can be problematic. In the best case, people may try to avoid others they're jealous of (or at...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Ideas For Preventing Others From Feeling Jealousy About Us We are very good at creating good opportunities for growing. We devote many things for reaching these opportunities, but we are also very vulnerable for others to feel jealousy of us. What would you do to prevent others from feeling...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    As an INTP, do you find you ever get particularly jealous? And to clarify, I'm talking about jealousy, not envy. I haven't seen much information relating to this topic. I was wondering how other INTP's deal with jealousy and to what extent you may feel it. It's still a confusing concept to me.
  10. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    oooh, I'm so happy I have found enneagrams. I know we would be over otherwise. Our story in short. We met about 8 months ago. We have fallen apart twice because of his typical 5 detachment and my (type 6) neediness and uncertainty. He is very scared because his ex-girlfriend was very jealous and...

    Hello everyone, ESFJ here I am working really hard on becoming the happiest person I can possibly be, and there are two big things that seem to be really holding me back. I'll address the first here, which is the jealousy I have to deal with in my relationship. My SO is kind, trustworthy...

  13. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I am an INTP and I am dating an INTP too. He said that he loves all his girlfriends/lovers even now, there is no such thing called ex in his dictionary, because those NT girls he was dating are what he is selected from the general crowd. Everyone is being cherry picked, then he will not let...
  14. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I -an infp- have been dating my intp-boyfriend for over a year, and we've been friends for 4 years. We have a running joke that I'm his emotionally needy girlfriend and that he's my frustrated boyfriend. Lately his being frustrated has been weighing me down, to the point that I feel like...
  15. Myers Briggs Forum
    Surprisingly a google search didn't reveal any threads... Anyway, to generalise (and I know this isn't completely dictated by type, which goes without saying), do you think certain types are more jealous/possessive in a relationship, and some types less? If so, which? I'd say it would depend...
  16. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello! I need advice on how to deal with a toxic friend. I met this friend last year in college, we're in the same program... This girl first came across as really sweet and we had loads in common. As our college year progressed, I noticed that she wasn't very passionate about school. She...

  19. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Perhaps it's because I'm on the lower end of the 4's levels, but I experience envy pretty much on a daily basis. Please feel free to share your jealousy and envy here, as it's always better to get it out than dwell on it. Also you can share tips that have worked for you when dealing with this demon.
  20. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I'm recovering from an incredibly bad, suicidal spell of depression. While with my ex (an unhealthy 6w5) I suffered from daily fits of rage, spontaneous urges to hurt myself, and insane jealousy. We ended it and I mellowed out to a state of lackadaisical ineffectualness, with a vague idea of...
