kindness

  1. General Psychology
    There is a saying that we must "put ourselves below others", so as to better respect-understand them, be more patient with them, and attract them to us. It's like how water flows from high places to low places, so if we are below, then others will come to us. However, this does not mean knowing...
  2. Myers Briggs Forum
    Curious to see how kindness/love plays out in types who are not Fe-dominant, or do not have Fe in their primary stack at all. Also because I believe kindness/caring for others is NOT AT ALL dependent on the functions you use. Sure, being strong with Fe will make it easier to care for others...
  3. SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    I've read that a big struggle for ISFJs is asserting themselves and also "avoiding the spotlight". Do you get recognition credit for (all) the work you do? Do you go above and beyond? Do you give appreciation to others for all they do?

    That's it: Throughout my life, beginning particularly when I was on my own, thrown out on my own at 16, though even before that, I'd help an older person carry her groceries--she didn't have to ask; she was clearly struggling, and I did other things like that, and I still do like when Bailey...
  5. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I saw this question in an MBTI test and I was surprised by my answer. I feel like I may not be a true INTJ (or NT) for this, but I value kindness over intelligence personally. I was wondering what everyone else thinks of this?
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So I've been lurking in the INFJ sub-forum and reading fellow INFJs posts, and I can't help but think that what they write seems very poetic, mature, kind, and basically very, very beautiful writing style. Whereas my posts are... childlike... and I'm wondering if this is because I'm young. Or is...
  7. Sex and Relationships
    Hello PCafe Family!! :) I have had some relationship drama for the past 6 months, which has been the majority of my college year... so I turn to my fellow Personality Theorists who will understand! I am an INFP, who from others peoples points of view, seems to be and ENFP! I am very social, go...
  8. ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    I love you guys, I honestly do. Genuine, and Kind. I just wish you guys would start talking to yourselves better. Every SFJ I've known has had a problem with their Ti and self-criticism. The way you talk to yourselves, is the way you will talk to your kids, and your friends. Treat yourselves...
  9. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    I love you guys, I honestly do. Genuine, and Kind. As your friendly NF, I just wish you guys would start talking to yourselves better. Every SFJ I've known has had a problem with their Ti and self-criticism. The way you talk to yourselves, is the way you will talk to your kids. Treat yourselves...
  10. Blog
    I think I might have to let go. I have a bunch of academic stuff that I need to be doing in the next three months, as well as a job and preparations for studying abroad and just life in general. I decided to start this because I was curious about if I could really write anything regularly for...
  11. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    All my life it seems as if people come to me for comfort if they feel alienated or excluded in any way, especially in group settings. I remember in school most of the kids who were bullied "tagged along" with me, so to speak. They often confided in me and valued my opinions (which is so nice of...

    How wonderful are people? Yeah, I know, they can be mean and selfish and stupid -- but they can also be heroic, loving and kind. I am a natural empath, which brings with it all kinds of pain and frustrations, but I wouldn't give it up for a minute. Seeing one moment of strength and beauty...
  13. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Taking this idea from pinkrasputin from the ISTJ sub-forum aka my personality type sub-form (: Anyway, the idea is to say what you like (compliment) about ENFJs if you are a non-ENFJ like myself. (you can still participate if you are an ENFJ yourself but it's more fun to read what other types...
  14. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    The upside of being down The article talks about the benefit Sydney researches have found in feeling sad. It makes me think if the correlation of feeling bad with being morally good. I've thought for a long time people who were more prone to being hurt, sensitive people, were generally kinder...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    * RULES FOR THE INFP ( Just some brainstorming for the summer and how I need to live my life :wink: ) Do what you want to do. Do not force yourself to do otherwise. If you do not want to go to a party, do not. Do not feel ashamed of yourself for doing so, you're just not...
  16. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    A couple weeks ago, I really got into the personality type thing and wanted to know who exactly my soul mate was going to be. Then I realized, all I wanted in a person was someone who can bring the best out of me or help me become a better person and that I don't have to limit myself to a...

    The power of love...it can allow people to do things they normally would not do. It gives us strength. It becomes more important to us than anything else. It is the reason we wake up in the morning. Love is something amazing, and those without it, long for it, and are often willing to kill or...
