  1. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I became friends with an INTP this year and I often talk to her about her personality type as I have not been able to 100% figure out any INTP in my life yet. The thing is, I do not share my interests with other people because I am embarrassed / like to keep it to myself. Naturally, I did not...
  2. SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    In a past relationship in high school, I pushed my xSFJ boyfriend to question rules and to attempt to re-negotiate them if they seemed unfair. I just wanted him to talk to his parents more. We regularly had explosive fights, but it wasn't until the end of the relationship that he revealed just...
  3. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Maybe not totally catfished, but I was definitely deceived. I talked more about this on my blog, but long story short, met a seemingly nice guy on a game. Eventually, we had some sort of feelings for each other, and we exchanged kik. After nearly two weeks of talking, something just felt so...
  4. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey, so I had an odd experience with an INTJ a while ago, and I was wondering if any of you lovely INTJs out there could help me understand what would cause an INTJ to turn to this behaviour. I work in animation as an animator, and have several friends in different areas of the film industry...
  5. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I want to start this new thread for the sole purpose of getting feedback from other ENTPs. Now, if you're not ENTP, please, feel free to pitch in, give you views, opinions, based on fact or otherwise. Just know, that SOMETIMES, there might be an ENTP out there who will come down hard on your...
  6. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hello friends, I have a problem with my boyfriend and would love to have your insights. We met online playing games and was together for 2 years. I took the mbti test at school and came up as INTJ, I asked him to do the test too and he came up as ENFP. I was surprised that, apparently, we are a...
  7. ENFP Articles
    Written by @Vishalmisra A cursory glance of MBTI will leave you with the knowledge that there are 16 personality types, each assigned a 4-letter code. There is an inherent problem with this; and it is as follows: we all meet people we tend to give 4-letters to as human beings, and those 4...
  8. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Simply put, how does the concept of truth effect your perspective on the world? I've read that ENTPs are supposed to be "truth seekers", like other NT types. I've also read that ENTPs tend to be honest and get annoyed when other people aren't, especially at the expense of protecting peoples...
  9. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I ask this question because I suspect that most of you do not. That is the tendency in my case, at least. I just take note of it. I also try to remember specifics about that individual's behavioral pattern while he- or she is lying to me, in order to become more efficient at catching them in the...
  10. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    1. Do you think that lying is immoral/wrong? 2. In what situations would it be considered "okay" to lie? 3. Are you a good liar? 4. What do people usually catch you on? 5. What do you think makes a good lie? 6. Do you feel bad for lying? 7. Any other thoughts? my answers: 1. in some...
  11. Sex and Relationships
    When I talked to men from my town, or would used to, it would take them at least a month to reveal to me that they have a girlfriend and/or wife. Isn't this something they should share on the first day of whether or not they are taken, especially when it's supposedly that committed? If I was...
  12. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As an INFJ I find lying quite satisfying. I'm a good liar and I do it quite often in many situations and I can't seem to stop myself from doing it. I know it isn't healthy but it feels really good sometimes for me. For example I find great satisfaction in greatly screwing people over secretively...
  13. ESTJ Forum - The Guardians
    So there is this ESTJ person I know who started opening up to me, but at some point when I told her I would like to go out with her she immediatly shut herself in behind an armor of lies. More or less every second thing she told me from that moment was a lie. Obviously we don't talk anymore. So...
  14. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    In terms of handling, coming to terms with, and overcoming a lie they've been faced with -- what are INFJs ways of approaching what is naturally a dishonest action towards them? I've lied to my INFJ male friend whom I've only known for a while (more than a year-ish) and it was not with...
  15. Cognitive Functions
    Even though my goal is usually to support and encourage others I'm really stubborn about being honest. I hate lying just because it's what friends do or it's what's 'socially acceptable' in the given situation. And on some level I get that it can hurt people, that's why I try to get my answer...
  16. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    ***********The question is basically in the title. I have an ISFP girlfriend, we have been together about 3 months. It has been a bumpy ride, a lot of misunderstandings, and for some reason I have succeeded to hurt her feelings just about all the time. I am a strong intuitive perceiving type...
  17. Intro
    Hi everyone! Wow, this forum looks great in terms of content. I did take the personality test (Jung Topology found in Holly’s thread and the results designated me as ENFJ. Not sure how reliable the reading is (don’t really agree with some of the assessment). I took a couple of personality...
  18. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm not sure if this would relate to shadow functions or what, but I've often wonder why I lie to people to keep them at a distance. INFps don't strike me as the dishonest type, including myself, so I wondered if anyone has any more insight into this. Do you ever find yourself lying about...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Are you easily fooled when emotionally invested? When was the last time you were tricked by someone? I can easily tell when someone is trustworthy when I am on the outside giving advice, but I have difficulty knowing when to trust someone I am personally involved with. It seems that a lot of my...
  20. ESTJ Forum - The Guardians
    I'm curious. If an ESTJ were to lie, how would the scenario play out? > Under what circumstances would provide an ESTJ reason to lie? > Would ESTJs make good liars? > What qualities do ESTJs think would make a good liar? > Will ESTJs weave a complex story? > How do ESTJs react to...
