  1. ESTP Forum - The Doers
    Hey guys, I'm new so bear with me and let me know if anything is not okay. I'm ENFP so I hope it's okay to be posting here. I need your advice. What do you think happens when an ESTP is unhealthy? Not ill necessarily, just letting the negative aspects of their personality shine through. How do...
  2. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hey, all, strap in tight, because this is a long post (sorry in advance). Little bit of a wonky issue here. The reason I have 3 subjects in the title is because they all mesh around the same question-issue, which is to ask why I act the way I do. See, here's the dilemma. I've taken the...
  3. Myers Briggs Forum
    Do certain types seem to 'grow up' faster, or try to act all old, responsible, grown up, or adult or 'mature' earlier than others? Like in childhood and adolescence, but also avoiding any perceived childishness or childlikeness as an adult. Like SJs seem more this way than say NFs. Like as a...
  4. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This thread was created out of my curiosity at the changes in INTPs as they mature. INTPs, what were you like as children, teenagers, adults? Which are the biggest changes you have noted in the years that you have paid attention to such changes? I found out that I was an INTP only last year, and...

    How do you keep up with who your supposed to like? Does it ever feel like you'd be banished from certain groups of "friends" if you didn't go along with the same opinion as the group... or just certain people? President Obama is a great example of this type of "must hate" or "must love"...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As intp male in early stage of relationship with infj female, I've realized that it's hard for me to be a dependable person (being an unmotivated intp) for someone who knows exactly what they want in life and likes to be on top of things (infj). Nonetheless, she often shows that she needs...
  7. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    As intp male in early stage of relationship with infj female, I've realized that it's hard for me to be a dependable person (being intp) for someone who knows exactly what they want in life (infj). Nonetheless, she often shows that she needs someone mature and dependable in her life, and I would...
  8. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    The idea had occurred to me, if Fi can be immature and wrongly directed, can't Ti do the same? Of course it can, but when I think of how it happens with Fi, I imagine they are these inner feelings that one can't shake and keep experiencing - and without its due inspection can lead to...
  9. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    This is a question about growing to emotional maturity within friendships for the INTJ personality type. I'm really interested in developing my shadow aspects such as feelings and values. I often find friendships with iNtuitive Feelers NF both intense and rewarding and also challenging, because...
  10. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi everyone! I've seen a few threads that have mentioned the maturity of ENFPs in passing, and how maturity / age makes such a difference in how ENFP posters communicate on these forums. I'm wondering - for you seasoned ENFPs out there, what makes you a mature ENFP over one that's still...
  11. General Psychology
    Can one be classified as an adult judging only by their physical age, or is there more to it than that? I'd love to hear some different perspectives on the matter.
  12. Intro
    FOR TL;DR PLEASE SEE THE LAST SENTENCE OF THIS PASSAGE. I'm calling it a passage, because it is a voyage... of writing... so good luck for those of you daring (baring) to read it. First of all, I never do this. I never sign up for forums or anything like that, I'm always a lurker. Not in a...
  13. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Where on the maturity scale would you place yourself: immature, mature, or somewhere in the middle? What about when you were younger? People have always told me I was so much more mature than everybody else my age. I think I'm okay with that, but I know I do have my moments where I must be...
  14. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I'm talking 30+ Adult ENTPs, what's it like to be you? What has changed in your behavior/interests? What has stayed the same? I realize everyone is different, and so are their circumstances, but I'm still curious to see how ENTP characteristics manifest themselves in adults who've had some...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've tried looking for threads and articles on this specific topic, but yeah, this thread is proof I failed finding one. Sorry ^^; Do you think there's such a thing as "the mature INFP" (and thus, "the childish INFP")? If no, why not? If yes, what are the differences between mature and...
  16. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Just curious to hear about other people's experiences. Many of my family members and friends are this type and it seems like they have their whole lives perfectly planned and achieving the goals on their checklist at a rapid rate: get a job, get married, get a house with a white picket...
  17. Articles
    Does the concept of type 'maturity' relate to cognitive development? This is just something that randomly just came to me; I haven't really thought it through... Can the idea of individuals of a certain type, being 'mature' reveal more than just a particular (but unrelated to Jung or any...
