  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    As a native portuguese speaker, I've done and redone portuguese MBTI tests and always got INFJ as definition. So recently I found myself worrying whether alternating between languages could somehow affect my thinking pattern, I've redone the test in english (same questions as the portuguese...
  2. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've read that many INFJ's love languages and am wondering in average how many do you know or how many you are fluent in.
  3. Myers Briggs Forum
    This is something I recently thought of. I learned a word in German, 'fernweh' (so I'm told) that means a 'nostalgia/longing for a place you've never been to.' Which made me wonder, why English often lacks terms like these. I mean this is EXACTLY the feeling I feel a lot. Like I felt that way...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I was just wondering, how do you INFJ's approach school and learning in general? What are your best subjects, and how do you learn them? Just tell me what you think of the subject, how well you do, how you learn, etc. If you can't think of anything, refer to the questions below each subject to...
  5. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    That's writing that has no inherent meaning (or rather, it can but then it's-- ah, what the heck, here's the Wikipedia article). I like asemic writing mainly because I do con-script-ing (that is, I make constructed scripts (I don't conscript) which is a subset of Conlang which is uh-- here's...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Ok so I know that a lot of us INFJs are talented at learning languages, but does anyone know if a specific method of learning is extra suitable to our personality type? Do you guys think language learning methods are more of a type thing, or a personal preference thing? btw. I am embarking on...
  7. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Alright, so I am dating an ENFJ. She is an absolutely amazing woman.. I must say, I am really impressed by your personality type!! The dynamic between my ENFJ and I seems to move like clockwork! Now, I am pretty sure we have things figured out.. So I guess that I am just curious... What are...

    English is an amazing linguistic system - probably the most versatile and advanced on the planet; and more amazingly still, new semantic patterns continually emerge! The evolution of language is ineffable, and yet the extent to which one may express thoughts through speech and literature is...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Ohai guyz. :kitteh: Thought this would be fun idea for a thread for all you INFPs in the pod. Simple rules. First poster writes a metaphor, the next poster does their best to interpret the metaphor, then posts a new one for the next poster to interpret. Come up with some really good ones. I...
  10. Generation Y Forum
    Sorry if this has been discussed before. I'm Gen Y. However, I find that the way I talk is completely different from the way a lot of younger Gen Yers do, and it makes me feel snobbish. I don't even like the word snobbish. Anyone else find this too? For example, I don't use a lot of the...
  11. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This isn't an INTP specific item, but I think this would be one of the more appropriate places to find an answer... Anyway, I'm looking for words with 16+ unique letters so I can rule out my rasterizing word compression system. (BTW, is there any system that works in a similar fashion?) Also...

  13. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Gosh, I think this is bothering way more than it should, but my ESFP friend and her cutesy language is too much! She adds an S to the end of everything. "Cools!" "Okays!" "See ya laters!" and I think it makes her sound immature and dumber than she actually is. Why does she do this? Does she...
  14. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I know we ENFPs are famous for our analogies. What are some you've thought of to describe things lately? some of my most recent: - when thinking about how different personality types communicate and understand each other: it's like making dinner. Everyone has to eat, and they can only use...
  15. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I constantly catch myself making really awkward metaphors. xD In fact, I was talking to @Ace Face the other day and I made a weird metaphor about a chocolate covered fruit. (Yes, shameful... lmfao) In fact, I got into honors English 9 somehow and currently our teacher asks us about allusions. I...
  16. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    So, I'm just wondering: How much do you like obscenities? I use them all the time, partially because they are fun, because the elicit a reaction but most of all it just seems to work with what I'm saying (Which is usually me calling someone a Goddamn idiot or jackass or getting passionate about...
  17. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Recommended for anyone new to MBTI, or any NF who might... misunderstand us. So. Since a translator for emotions would be near-impossible to construct, let's have the INTPs teach their "language," and everyone else... I hope you understand binary, as some of us might be inclined to code it so...
  18. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I see communication as vital to a relationship, so I probably won't pursue a long term relationship with someone who doesn't speak my language. I dunno, that's just how I feel right now. Things might change depending on the situation though... Would you date/marry someone who doesn't speak...
