  1. How to you avoid and navigate challenging post responses?

    Advice Center
    Hey, all. I wanted to hear what you do to avoid and navigate challenging post responses. I am new (as you can see), and I also made a post in haste a bit ago and I didn't put enough thought into how it might be perceived. I was completely misunderstood by some. I felt attacked, but was able...
  2. 7w8 girl and 5w4 guy (write everything you know about this combination)

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi! Let me tell you the story of these two and how their problems began: She is a 7w8 (ENTP) girl and she is very confident, outgoing and eccentric. He is a 5w4 (INFJ) guy and he is a little insecure, shy and tame. They both are very intelligent, non-conformists, eloqent and creative. They are...
  3. [ENFP] How to cooperate as an ENFP with ESFJ and ISTJ parents

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I'm an ENFP who is very typical ENFP. I don't like cleaning or doing boring things at all and I tend to spend a decent amount of time alone in my room for personal reflection. My mom is (I'm pretty sure) an ESFJ and she is very intent on keeping a clean home and ensuring I'm doing everything...
  4. [INFJ] Talking about yourself to get others to open up?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm talking about deeper or more personal conversations. I know about 4 INFJs (there's a high NF population in my area), some more than others but I came to a realization a few days ago while reading another INFJ post that the behavior I was taking as just eagerness to share might have been...
  5. Intro/Confessions of a 5w6 INTP

    Intro
    Hey everyone, I'm Skyler. ...So I've been interested in learning about psychology and my own psyche, ever since I was about 12 years old, which is what eventually led me to this forum. I took the Enneagram test and Myers-Briggs test before finding this forum, and I guess I was surprised at how...
  6. [ENTP] Misunderstood ENTPs. Stereotypes for the most stereotyped type

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I've been finding that on a lot of thread's people don't talk about ENTPs very much. But when they do, their perceptions of us are usually very, very wrong. So I wish to get some ENTPs to talk about the things that people believe about us that simply aren't true. i.e "ENTPs only care about...
  7. [ENFP] INTP girl and ENFP ex-boyfriend/best friend

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    WARNING: This is a really long post, and I am going to sound very emotional in this post (not natural for me ha ha), and not to mention I will be adding more probably in the future. But anyways, here we go: Things between me and my now ex, who I believe is an ENFP (possibly INFP), are a bit...
  8. Girls, Why Do You Hate Some Women? :(

    General Psychology
    I'd really appreciate your advice. :) I've never ever had a female friend. It really depresses me when I see girls socializing and making long-lasting friendships, while I'm left aside wondering what the hell is wrong with me. I'm even more confused because I get along great with guys so I...
  9. [INFJ] Problems with an ISTJ friend?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I really, really don't want to sound biased, but I have not yet met an ISTJ that I can understand and completely get along with. Parents, friends, parents of friends... I just can't seem to "get" how their mind works. One of my closest friends is an ISTJ, but recently I found out that she is...
  10. [ENTP] ENTP needing others to read between the lines

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hello fellow ENTPs and all others who are all very welcome! Just wondering... have any of you ever thought: "Damn, it's too easy to fool people. I'd actually like someone to see through me/read between the lines." I know that the thing I hate the most is being misunderstood. It's fustrating...
  11. Stereotypical Misinterpretation of Emotions

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    Do you ever get the feeling that some people just assume you are much more emotional about everything than you really are? When you say something or do something with a slight emotional reaction and someone else blows it out of proportion and reacts to you as if you are reacting to them with...
