    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hi, I recently found out that I am an INTJ after weeks of researching. I first thought I was INTP because I got so many Ideas and stuff. I surely know that I am an I, N, T but aren't sure about J/P. When I saw the description of an INTJ, it was so accurate! But the one thing that isn't right is...

  6. [INTP] INTP manipulation formula

    This comes from the thread about motivation, where when I thought about it, I realized my motivation comes from answering my own questions.

    So, the idea is that as INTP's we lack motivation because we can't get bored very easily. lol, I realized this when I got so upset with myself for wasting my day away that I put a restriction on myself.

    Hi, I have been struggling lately with a "laziness" or "inability to do anything useful". It is a fact that I have to pass really, really important exams in two months and though I am still very ambitious, I find myself kinda paralyzed. Another fact is that my personal surrounding is going...

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I'm recovering from an incredibly bad, suicidal spell of depression. While with my ex (an unhealthy 6w5) I suffered from daily fits of rage, spontaneous urges to hurt myself, and insane jealousy. We ended it and I mellowed out to a state of lackadaisical ineffectualness, with a vague idea of...

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey there! I am very deep in hermit mode right now. A few months ago I had the chance to befriend a lot of people, given the setting, but I had no interest in that.

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    My ENFJ friend recently did this nice initiative where she asked everyone what keeps them living and doing what they do, so that if it was something tangible, she would then give something related to make our day. The question she asked was, "What keeps you going? or What drives you?" and yes, I...

  17. [INFP] What are the things you don't like about being an INFP?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    For me, personally, it's the altruism and how emotionally imbalanced I can get. Altruism can get me into trouble in the worst of ways. Too often I put others before myself, and it saddens me that it doesn't allow me to help another person to my full potential. It takes a toll on my confidence as...
