  1. [Enneagram Type 6] Techniques for overcomming yourself as a 6

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Type 6 has two major problems which stand in the way of overcoming fear with courage: 1. The boiling pot: - Every 6 has this, it is our mind. You can call it whatever you wish, but it all comes down to having chaos in our heads, thoughts come and go, wanted unwanted. Our mids are a mess of...
  2. [INTP] INTPs and meditation

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello everybody, new user to the site here! I wanted to make a thread were we could talk about our past experiences with meditation and how beneficial is was/is, especially for fellow INTPs. Being an intp it is difficult to slow my mind down throughout the day, or rather focus my mind on the...
  3. Sensing function and Meditation

    Cognitive Functions
    I regularly practise basic meditation by focusing mostly on my breath. I can't help but think that this sort of meditation exercises the function extroverted sensing because after meditating, even though I can feel calm and relaxed afterwards I also feel like I'm using this function more. I can...
  4. [INFP] Resource for INFP's who have trouble making their goals happen on a daily basis

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello all, I go in and out of my interest in MBTI typology, and this just so happens to be one of those periods where I'm back in the game. So I was watching vids from this youtube user EJArendee, and in his INFP vs INFJ video he purported that INFP's have plenty of willpower but lack the...
  5. An INFJ Meditation on Love, Understanding, and Authenticity

    Blog
    I want to paint a picture of the world and use some metaphors to illustrate some dynamics I experience in my life and that I see around me. This meditation isn't centered on type, and it's not so much theoretical as it is metaphorical. It's just a collection of images and metaphors that have...
  6. How meditation effects your Cognitive functions

    Cognitive Functions
    I have been mediating and practicing mindfulness a lot lately and while mediation helped me be more organized and more relaxed, I was wondering how does it affect your cognitive functions. For me, it turns down the voices in my head(Ti) and makes me control my Ne, which made more of an...
  7. Meditation and

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm wondering how meditation changes our apparent personalities. EJArendee made a video where he talked about Kurt Cobains personality and how it was hard to type him because he'd taken so much heroin. Meditation definitely changes the way people talk they seem very relaxed take there time to...
  8. Human autotrophs

    Science and Technology
    Hello everyone! I am a new member but instead of introducing myself as I should I have a question and some things that I think would be nice to discuss. My topic states human autotrophs, I was reading my biology book(college biology course) and was reading how on Earth there exists two...
  9. [INFP] How We Deal with Negative or Overwhelming Emotions

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Fellow INFPs (and anyone else wandering around), About 7 months ago I was in a rough spot in life. I had left the military after 6 years, along with all the people I knew -- my military "family". I moved out west while my family lives on the east cost. I moved to a place where I knew exactly 0...
  10. [ENFP] ENFPs, Se, and Meditation

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hello fellow ENFPs! I have found that meditation has possibly increased my Se (from what I understand Se to be.) I can look at things without interpreting them for longer periods of time and just enjoy them. I think I've always done this to some extent, but I'd usually start wondering things...
  11. [INTP] Meditation Experiences

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Meditation is a clinically tested way of increasing focus, clarity of cognition, balanced emotions, health and feelings of well being. Do you meditate? (There are many different ways of meditating.) What do you observe happens when you meditate (immediately and in the following days)?
  12. Any luck with mindfulness?

    General Psychology
    Hi guys, I'm trying mindfulness meditation in an attempt to combat clinical depression and anxiety. There is a lot of evidence behind this technique and it seems credible. I have been meditating for 2 weeks and have found no benefit as of yet. Does anyone have any positive or negative...
  13. [INTP] Dealing With an Emotional Disorder? e.g. Depression, Anxiety

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'd very much recommend the book The Emotional Life of Your Brain by Richard Davidson. I'll give you a little bit of an intro. Richard Davidson is a neuroscientist, specifically in the fields of psychology and psychiatry. He is a proponent of meditation, which is a central theme in his book...
  14. Diary Post Two

    Blog
    So, I figured out what quiets down my incessant mind. Nature. Apparently something simple as being in nature, and just listening/observing the animals/bugs/trees/everything quiets my mind as nothing else has. It's almost like a meditation in and of itself. I got around about an hour or two...
  15. What makes myself feel better and the day brighter?

    Blog
    Not so long ago I wrote a blog post about that I'll be spending a year not even thinking about getting into a (romantical) relationship that I'll spend this time dealing with emotional issues I have (emotional suppression to be exact.) It's been going great so far and it's getting better and...
  16. It seems...

    Blog
    It seems that I have made a plan... or actually a decision. I realized that my unhealthy way I handle my emotions - emotional suppression, has turned into emotional detachment sometimes. Also couple of crazy Ni-Ti loops, limerence and loneliness have made me think that I have to spend serious...
  17. [INFJ] Buddha Boy

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Ram Bahadur Bomjon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Has anyone here heard of Ram Bahadur Bomjon a.k.a. Buddha Boy? He was 15 years old when he told his mother he would be committing 6 years to meditation and he's proved modern science wrong about sustaining without food and water. His story...
  18. Meditation/Yesterday

    Blog
    I came home on a warm day yesterday to find that my cactus got over showered again... Still it thrives. I was in a half right sort of mood, and something instantly attracted me to to the grass and green- flourishing weeds below. I knelt down on the sun-soaked moist greenery and dug in; became...
  19. [INTP] Meditation and Buddhism

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I am a firm believer of things like yoga, meditation, and even Buddhism being a way of life, rather than a religious practice like some people believe. Meditation for me is a way of life. Does anyone practice meditation on a regular basis or interested in Buddhism? Buddhism is known for being a...
