  1. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    1984 foresaw the Collectivist Solipsism of today. After all, "multiculturalists" believe that if enough believe something to be true or moral, then it is true or moral to them. They usually claim as follows: everyone is prejudiced and bigoted in their own way, so why not all get along? And, if...
  2. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'd love to see people take this philosophy test and then post their results, see how consistent they are! I'd imagine INFJs like me would get very idealist, probably Platonist. Then you get S types which I imagine would be less likely to get strong philosophies, perhaps more...
  3. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello everyone, the idea of the thread is quite simple. Here on PerC we tend to have a lot of threads talking about literature, film, music, the dynamics of the psychological mind, gaming, fashion, etc. A lot of experiences, memories, and general advice/recommendations is thrown around daily...
  4. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello All! It's been awhile since I've posted. But here we are. Are any other INTJs into poetry or write poetry? If so, what do you like to read/write? I see my poetry as an outlet for difficult emotional situations, but I love word play and challenging definitions. If you want to share...
  5. Intro
    I just turned 18 last month and I'm from Australia. I really like ENTPs and ENFPs for their dominant Ne function since they compliment the vigour of the inquiries that my Ni and Ti set me on well. I've also found that I get along with INFJs and INFPs quite well. My interests are philosophy...
  6. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I've noticed that in most classic literature and all that, the heroines are pretty much all INFJs or INFPs, or at least NF. Do you know any fictional female ENTPs? Probably villains hehe but I'd really like to find out if there are any well known ones. (Or just NT heroines in general.)
  7. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I know there are some threads about this already and I've found some good books on those. I'm just in one of those specific, ineffable moods right now where I want to escape into a weird world. What I'm looking for is something similar to 1Q84. That's one of my favorites. I was going to just...
  8. Guess the type
    Woo it's been years. Time to rub off the dust a little. Anyway, I am an INFP who joined back in 2013 and I am a 20 year old literature undergraduate. Recently I have been studying the Canterbury Tales and I find them fascinating. reading about the characters, I thought of some possible MBTI...
  9. Book, Music, & Movie Reviews
    i created this thread, if you've read an absolute gem and want to share it with others or are out of ideas of what to read next. i have last read Lord of the rings and Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and loved both very much. i'm out of ideas right now, any suggestions? :rolleyes:
  10. ESFP Forum - The Performers
    Does it bother anyone else that ESFPs are generally the comic relief in fiction? Both books and movies alike. I might be biased, because I obviously look at my own more than any other MBTI type, but it seems to me, that if someone is shallow, irresponsible, and a kind smiley prankster, it means...
  11. ESFP Forum - The Performers
    There's Paolo Coelho, who is cited quite consistently as ESFP, but apart from that I haven't seen anyone. Writing is something I wanted to do as a kid and a long long time ago was decent at, but unfortunately, I don't have the determination to write more than 3-4 pages, after which I lose track...
  12. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    THE NOSE By Luís Fernando Veríssimo He was a dentist, well respected. With his forty-something years before him, a daughter almost in college. A serious man, sober, without surprising opinions but a solid reputation as a professional and citizen. One day, he showed up home with a fake nose...
  13. Education & Career Talk
    Can NTs be Romantic ??? I am INTP and doing English major (mainly due to my love for fiction); yes, I now know what a disaster can happen to me but when I chose literature I did not know what the INTP was. So, now I am having problem understanding Romantic poems by Coleridge, Wordsworth, Blake...
  14. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey INFJ's, you beautiful people that you are. We are emotional creatures and I don't know about you guys, but I find a certain beauty in sadness. I'm drawn to it, like I'm drawn to deep anger, hurt and betrayal as an artistic form. I like to empathise with it, understand it and feel it. I...
  15. Intro
    Hello everyone! I'm an INFJ who just joined Personality Cafe today. I've taken the MBTI quite a few times and almost always get INFJ. I'm somewhat close to the T/F border but am still solidly an 'F'. My boyfriend is (probably) an (unusually P-like) INTJ, and my best female friend is definitely...
  16. Myers Briggs Forum
    Would you say among great authors/writers INFPs probably lead out of all the types? Like of all the types we're the most successful in the literary field? I won't name all the many greats who are probably INFP, from Shakespeare to Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, Franz Kafka, Albert Camus, CS...
  17. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    What's your favourite genre for movies, books, tv shows etc.
  18. Blog
    Before I quote his work, I just wanted to say that Rene Daumal is perhaps one of my favorite writers. This excerpt is on the hollow men and the bitter rose, a short story within his Mount Analog book... Nowhere on the internet has anyone wrote out this story. I had searched and searched for it...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I read everywhere that INFPs are exceptionally good in writing and literature in general. I love literature and reading, but I CANNOT write well. Not that I wouldn't want to express myself through writing. I tried many times and every single time since early childhood I've told that I basically...
  20. 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...
