  1. [INFJ] When People Act Like They are Allergic to Vulnerability

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm mostly venting about this. I can't pin down if these people are sensors, sensing feelers, people who are too young, or maybe people who have encountered only mild life struggles. It's probably a combination. I recently shared in a small group setting (think church stuff) that I struggled a...
  2. [ENTJ] Confused with 'Arrogant'

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hi guys I'm an ENTJ 8w7 I was wondering if it is just me or have other ENTJs have gone through this misunderstanding of coming off as 'arrogant' ? If so, what was your story? If not, am I doing something wrong? I was recently interviewed for a shipping/receiving management position. During...
  3. I'm New! Pick At My Brain (INFJ, 4w3)

    Intro
    Hey everyone, So I'm apparently meant to introduce myself. I've known I'm an INFJ for many years now, and have generally always been quite certain of it. I understand and can relate to INFPs but I must conclude that INFJ is very prominent for me. I'm an enneagram type 4, and it's a freaking...
  4. [INFJ] It is getting tiresome now

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've always been hearing it, but since I've started my new job it has been more frequent than ever. "Well, that sounded enthusiastic.." , "I really don't get the feeling you enjoy what you are doing" or "Are you not excited for this?!" These remarks I have been hearing most of my life. For...
  5. [ENFP] ENFPs are misunderstood IMO -INFJ

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    ENFPs are stereotyped as vapid, manic children. It frustrates me because they are actually very analytical and thoughtful. Here's a video of a male and female ENFP When I post videos of ENFPs on my channel, people often comment (on youtube or reddit) saying that they must be INFPs because...
  6. [ISTJ] What makes you cool?

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Hey ISTJ's, What is the most interesting thing about you? Where do you find yourselves misunderstood? What do you wish everyone knew about you? Thankyou for being dependable, A Curious ENFP
  7. [INFJ] Christian INFJs -- Are you understood?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As pretty much... every INFJ alive, I have often found myself misunderstood. Sometimes, I step out too far, hoping to be understood. However, I am usually sorely disappointed; I'm sure you all are familiar with this. I do have a few close friends who really get me, and I'm grateful for that. But...
  8. [ENFP] Most misunderstood personality type?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    the ENFP personality type almost seems to be the most discussed type on a lot of forum sites, and pretty much anywhere MBTI related to me it seems like the ENFP type is always being deconstructed by everyone, and especially by us ENFPs ourselves In relation to our Fi, i find myself reading a...
  9. [INFP] INFP and Therapy: What's Your Experience

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Whether you are INFP or another type, I need your help and insight. I've just been through my 5th therapy session, and suddenly it went wrong. I am shy, anxious or fearful-avoidant attachment, sensitive (HSP), and have recently been having increased depression, social anxiety, and suicidal...

  11. [INFJ] INFJs and Yearning for Meaningful Relationships

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So I don't usually post in forums etc., but here I feel safe with other INFJs and I wish to talk to other INFJs about a problem I have experienced to see if this is "typical", if you have experienced the same, how you got round it etc. So, I've been feeling very lonely for a long time due to...
  12. [INFJ] Did you find your partners not understanding you or how complex you are problematic?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm paranoid and deleted this text as I was scared my boyfriend would Google one of our issues and this thread would show up. Sorry.
  13. Do you feel like you don't fit in?

    Member Polls
    Do you feel weird and that you don't fit in? I do, and I feel it often and a lot. I was wondering if it is because I am an ENFP, but ENFPs are normally charming, so this confuses me. I was wondering which personalities often are/feel misunderstood :o
  14. INFP ANGST! Seriously misunderstood....

    Intro
    Sometimes even to my nearest and dearest I feel that even with my best efforts to explain myself, I am not often understood OR believed. Are INFP's really so enigmatic to others or is it just that we perceive ourselves as such? And if we are so, what is it that you percieve that makes us...
  15. [INTJ] Are you constantly misunderstood?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    As an INTJ female, I consistently feel as though I am misunderstood in the following ways: 1. I believe we are living in a world of extroverts who don't understand introverts. I absolutely enjoy being alone unless you are my sister, my mom, or my boyfriend. However, my roommates are always...
  16. [INFJ] Is it normal for me to feel so lost and misunderstood? How can I feel better???

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I just feel so lost most of the time. I know that INFJs normally feel really misunderstood and lost because we feel like we need to have a purpose, but why? Why do I feel so lost in life? Does anyone else feel stuck and desire adventure and purpose more than anything else? I don't even know what...
  17. Another Misunderstood Teenage INFP

    Intro
    I've cleverly constructed my whimsical username in hopes of luring other INFPs... Shhh >:) I'm into all kinds of things. I'm into weird music. Seriously, who's got Jagwar Ma, Joywave and Panic! At The Disco in the same playlist? Mee.... I like writing, filmmaking, doodling... I hate math...
  18. Freaks and Geeks Characters

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hey guys just finished watching this old show called Freaks and Geeks if you guys know it. And if you dont I suggest you watch it. What do you guys think the MBTI types of the characters are? This is what I think- Kim-ESTP Lindsey- Starts off INFP in first few episodes, but then switches to...

  20. [INFJ] New to the forum. Dealing with some stuff. Trying to see if I'm the only one.

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi, I'm new to the forum. Out of curiosity I recently started looking into facts about my personality type and I found that only about 1% of people are INFJ personalities. If that's true, it explains so much. Does anyone else notice that people don't seem to understand what motivates us? why we...
