  1. A Hard Lesson to Learn

    A Hard Lesson to Learn It has been more than 30 years ago since I graduated high school. In my senior year, my last semester, I needed an English credit, so I took “Creative Writing.” Now this class had prerequisites that made it impossible for a freshman or sophomore to take it. It was mostly...
  2. [INTP] Social Praise and Awkwardness

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I just received my final grades for the Spring 2018 Semester. Unsurprisingly, they are all quite well. The typical thing to do is show my family, because they are going to ask anyway. It is hard to feel proud though. I just do the work and the numerical feedback is spit out a few days later. I...

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    We learn a lot throughout our lives, there's always something we wish we'd known sooner... What advice would have been good to know at ____... I'd wish someone would have said to me during my adolescence that it is ok to not know who you are....
  4. [INFP] INFP male, post-breakup (4 year relationship, engaged), looking for insight

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Apologies for the incoherent rant. Head's a bit muddled. I’m just looking to hear from anyone who can relate/has any thoughts on INFP issues. I guess the general theme is relationships, life, pushing yourself etc. I’m a 28 year-old INFP (I think?) guy. I just got out of a four-year...
  5. [ENFP] ENFP dating an ESFJ. HELP ! CRAZY?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    For a year and a half, I (the ENFP male) was dating an ESFJ (female). I broke it off. However, I've been recently reconsidering getting back together. We recently talked about where we failed each other, could have tried harder, and reflected on what we've learned apart. PROS: we have...

  7. What Do You Like To Study? Written on Sept 3 2016

    I enjoy studying certain tests, and also people and how they respond to what they get on the tests, whether it's a number that signifies intelligence, or a description, or imagery... I especially enjoy what comes naturally to me, always has--seeing the flaws in the questions asked, limits of...
  8. [INFP] The INFP Education Thread

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    INFPs can be really indecisive when it comes to choosing educational pathways. Should I go to college? What major should I pick? Should I drop out instead? What should I learn next? Are INFPs good in sciences? I think a good way of answering such questions is to seek out people who are already...
  9. What's your type and what's your learning style?

    Education & Career Talk
    I'm curious about this... What's your enneagram and/or MBTI, and what type of learner are you? Hands on? experimenting? Learns better when with a group? One on one tutoring? Being self taught from books and/or internet? Etc?
  10. [INFP] Autodidacts - Managing Your Studies

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    You go back in time! Lost's Desmond Hume style — but for good, and without nosebleeds or aneurysms. You're 12 years old again and will get to relive your life. Now, you're not insane (or masochist) enough to want to go through school once more, but learning is important to you, so you decide to...
  11. [ENTP] Do you like math or languages better?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Do/did you like math or languages (learning another language like French or Spanish) better or do you have no preference? If so, to what extent does your preference exist? If you want my answer: Je n'aime pas les maths. C'est bête. Je préfère étudier la langue française.

    Hey fellow INFPs :) I am currently studying and i am curious about my behaviour during learning phases. I am hardworking and study several hours a day before my exams.

  13. [INFP] How do you learn?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello! :3 I'm wondering if there is a particular learning style for INFPs. I would like to discover how I can learn better, so would love to hear advice and tips from other INFPs. I find that I get bored quite easily reading large amounts of text. I guess, being an N, I don't like being...
  14. Excited about university

    Advice Center
    H'ya all! I don't really need advice, i know the right thing to do.

  15. [INTP] The best resources for learning about the body and medicine?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    To clarify, I really want to learn about cancer. It's very interesting to me, with the limited knowledge I have of it. My problem is, to really grasp how more advanced illnesses effect the body, I need foundation of knowledge, like the body and it's inner workings. Cell structures, and different...
  16. [ENFP] The Argumentative ENFP

    ENFP Articles
    A post by @WMDistraction Okay, so I know I tend to focus on myself a lot, but who else do I know better than myself? It would be cool to use other ENFPs, but I can't literally get inside their heads, even if it feels like I am sometimes! Anyway, onto the post. There's a great aggregate link...
  17. [ENFP] ENFP and the Importance of Ideas

    ENFP Articles
    Written by @WMDistraction This blog post was originally going to include an example of how the idea for a Magic: The Gathering (MTG) deck ended up being more important than the hours I spent organizing the cards that I pulled out of the boxes, and how one friend was extremely confused about...

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello everyone, I was on the edge whether to really create this topic as it's kind of personal and may sound crazy, but I'm interested in answers, opinions and constructive criticism from knowledgeable people in personalities at Personality cafe, who "don't bite" ;) Even though I'm new to this...
