  1. [INFJ] Intensity of emotions felt when alone increases after social interactions

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So I'm wondering if anyone else experiences this.. I spent a lot of my time alone behind the computer every day (working) and I barely see anyone except for family members and some friends every now and then. So the longer I spent alone, the less intense I seem to feel. I don’t know, it feels...
  2. [INFJ] Help meeeee; I joined an infj fb page and it was one of my worst ideas ever

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Quick question: Do you care a lot about being understood? So I'm new here. Heck, this sounds petty. I'm not sure this post will even be seen and I certainly hope joining this page will not be as bad of an idea as joining that group. I guess I need someone to rant to, someone who can conversate...
  3. "The Dying Prince"

    Blog
    There's a power outage over in this corner Can't you tell by the lack of light? I tend to short-circuit when the thoughts and feelings overwhelm They entrap me in their rapturous storm of wind and acid The black glove of despair Clenched around my throat Gasping for breath and nearing death...
  4. [ENFP] Not as happy as I used to be.

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I haven't used a forum like this since high school but since I continue to spend my days off wasted by thinking about my life over and over again I feel like maybe someone out there will have some good advice for me. I could talk a very long time about the various hardships I have gone through...
  5. [Enneagram Type 4] Masochism?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    (Going to be honest... this is my first post. So if you think I need enlightenment, be my guest. :hampster:) Well, let's just say that ever since I realized I'm a four I've embraced whatever pain my dream world (I have Maladaptive Daydreaming "disorder") brings me. I also came to realized I...
  6. "The Chokecherry Tree"

    Blog
    Tombstone on the front door Playing the part of a corpse today, ma Bring flowers if you must but do not disturb This is only a role, I’ll step off the stage in time They peer into my urn, hoping to discern They tap on my tomb, looking to exhume One man’s pine box is another man’s womb One man’s...
  7. "On the Fringe"

    Blog
    The distant, morbid, green-grey thrush of melancholia That feasts upon the magic windows Where once we saw mystical fortune And dreamed lucid dreams of ecstatic fantasy In that instant the fog-filled recess of sleepy town inundated Illuminated, cast afire Rattling and rotting in the ruins...
  8. The Summer End Melancholy

    Blog
    It comes every year. When the summer ends, when the nights get a tad darker, when nature smells a bit more, it cuts deep. I've had it for as long as I can remember, I get sad, almost depressed, just by seeing it. Like it looms over me, a reminder of the coming winter months. Ironically the...
  9. Hello everyone! New ENxJ here! (And not sure where to place myself)

    Intro
    Hello everyone! I'm new here and I'm an ENxJ. Frankly, that's why I joined the site. I have taken countless free online MBTI quizzes and they can never seem to decide whether I am ENTJ or ENFJ. It's always quite close. I'm extremely N and moderately strongly J. I'm slightly more E than I, but...
  10. [INFJ] INFJs and Unresolved Hearthbreak

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I had my first relationship (at first I balked at calling it that but now I guess it was) aged 13 a few years back, and it was an on-off relationship that started out pretty sweet but wound up with him being manipulative and emotionally abusive (yes, 13-14 year olds can be like that!). I ended...
  11. Let's pretend this title is the most beautiful thing ever. (New INFP user)

    Intro
    Hi everyone, I'm Shawnee. I'm an INFP (even though I can be an extrovert), counter-phobic 6, sanguine-melancholy... And I feel like I'm forgetting something buuuuuut it might just be my zodiac sign (Sagittarius). I'm really horrible at introducing myself though D: And despite being a sometimes...
  12. "Kaleidoscopic Melancholy" (Poem)

    Blog
    Today the blue-hued ribbon has tinted the rainbow and tainted its motley Leaving no room for other emotions to exude, just dullness and darkness Too much milk in the coffee pales away the fresh acceleration Outdone by grey shadow thoughts, I am weakened and bedridden Grasping at straws and...
  13. "Buried Alive" (Poem)

    Blog
    No blankets on this bed Only blank spots in my head Got me feeling cold and dead Hanging tightly to a thread Can't you hear the silence After all the fear and violence They paged all of the pilots And told them all to land Weaving baskets till tomorrow Hope that they'll contain my sorrow Have...
  14. [INFP] Any INFP 4w5 or 5w4!?!? What music/books do you love?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey everyone so today I found out I'm 4w5 and I'm wondering if there are other 4w5's who are also INFP's? I am interested in what kind if music and books you like... I am looking for one of those that gives you chills and just overwhelms you with all it's energy (if it makes sense). I love rock...
  15. [INFP] addicted to being melancholy...?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I feel like I WANT to be melancholy a lot. I feel like it helps me to be more sensitive to others and assists in creativity. I just feel that there is this underlying sadness to me all the time and it's okay with me. I don't really go out of my way to make myself happy. Sometimes I wish I...
  16. I'm introducing myself xD

    Intro
    Hey! My name's Katherine and I am new to the forum, but I've had an interest in the MBTI for a while and whenever I did a search for anything Myers Briggs related I'd always come up with very interesting discussions from here. Just so you know I'm an INFP and a type 4 with the enneagrams... I...
