  2. Someone Wondering About Genesis: Adam & Eve (9 2016) My Answer

    Blog
    The best explanation I've found for the significance of that act is this: It is metaphor, mythology in the best sense--it is when Mankind went from an innocent animal state and crossed the mental border into what would be human. Once Mankind did that--and the story is told from a...
  3. [INFJ] Find the Metaphor

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I saw a quote online that went something along the lines of "I swear an INFJ could stare at a wooden chair for an hour and come up with 50 metaphors of how it relates to life". Soooooo let's do it! Find the metaphor/hidden meaning in the picture above you and then post another random picture...
  4. [INFP] Share some hypothetical metaphors that you're proud to come up with

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've got tons, I realize a lot of the time when I talk to people, considering that I'm generally comfortable with them, I go onto the full metaphorical-mode whenever whatever topics that we're discussing about requires you ponder and analyze. It's almost like metaphorization is the default mode...
  5. [INFJ] INFJs, dreams, reveries, symbols and metaphors

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello there INFJs! We are supposed to have a peculiar interest and fascination for the images that our unconscious produces (that's the result of having a dominant Ni), images which usually manifest themselves in dreams and in reveries, rich in symbols and metaphors. I know that's how I am and...
  6. Where I stand

    Blog
    I am hurt. Bewildered. Confused. Sad. A break so fresh. My love is complete, whole, never ending, unbroken, eternal. My trust, however, has been shattered. Trust is such a fragile thing. It only takes a small chip in the surface to create a weak point in which the entire structure can be...
  7. [INFJ] INFJ Theory

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I resist my desires with strength when I feel something I desired is wrong. My belief system grows.. and makes things more complicated. Learning to not hold on for example, the whole "Letting the butterfly go" metaphor. In a sense, I see INFJ's simply need to be able to sort through their...
  8. [INFP] Interpret the Metaphor Before You

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Ohai guyz. :kitteh: Thought this would be fun idea for a thread for all you INFPs in the pod. Simple rules. First poster writes a metaphor, the next poster does their best to interpret the metaphor, then posts a new one for the next poster to interpret. Come up with some really good ones. I...
  9. [ENFJ] To all the types around the world... dreams

    ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Now, I appreciate that this probably isn't the first thread about dreams ever written in these forums. It likely won't be the last either. But I was looking to have somewhat of a conversation about it. A new thread seemed like a good way to do this. For the forum zealots out there that...
  10. [INFP] Scared of Writing?!

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey Guys, Basically, I'm really scared of any kind of writing at all. Mainly because within my conversations I have become very good at using metaphor and wit to actually avoid talking about any of my emotions what so ever. I am afraid when i put pen to paper and actually express my emotion...
  11. Consider how this applies to your life or something in your life. Talk about it.

    If you fail to release a stretch, what benefit is actually gained? If you stretch too far, something is bound to give out. Pain is the result.
  12. Still

    Blog
    This didn't turn out precisely I way I wanted it. Oh well. I held the small, white face to mine, tracing every detail with my eyes. The thin lines shined in the dimming light, and I could hear a tiny sound. With a single press, the music that had not once disappeared before ceased, and the...
  13. [ENFP] ENFP Analogies

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I know we ENFPs are famous for our analogies. What are some you've thought of to describe things lately? some of my most recent: - when thinking about how different personality types communicate and understand each other: it's like making dinner. Everyone has to eat, and they can only use...
  14. [ENFP] ENFPs and allusions/metaphors

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I constantly catch myself making really awkward metaphors. xD In fact, I was talking to @Ace Face the other day and I made a weird metaphor about a chocolate covered fruit. (Yes, shameful... lmfao) In fact, I got into honors English 9 somehow and currently our teacher asks us about allusions. I...
  15. Intuitives and Abstract/Symbolic Thinking-- A Sensing Asks!

    Cognitive Functions
    So I figured I'd get the best responses by asking the most intuitive thinkers here :cool: As a sensor, I'm trying to wrap my mind around the idea of thinking in metaphors, analogies, and symbols. I think about these in classic literature, within movies, or historical patterns. I don't find it...
  16. [INFJ] Are you good with metaphors and similes?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Im wondering if you are good at these things? Do you understand metaphors without any explanation? On that can you see into the language, into the meaning and see even more likenesses or universal truths? I guess I mean do metaphors really work in your mind? I know 20 questions. :) What about...
  17. Back to Earth

    Blog
    I shall now step away from the metaphorical nature of my first two blog entries and return to Earth. While I’m completely absorbed in that style and emotion while writing, when I look back I realize that I sound a bit off my head, that I’m exactly like some of the writers that I dislike in...
