  1. I picked up a new project to distract myself.

    Blog
    I recently picked up a new project to distract myself from going to the bad sites that put me down. It's coming along very nicely. My Web site theme is about being a decent human being and all the core values, qualities one should have to consider a person a decent human being. It also talks...
  2. [ISFP] How to love an ISFP - The supervisor relationship type.

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    This thread is a focus on the ISFP/ENFP relationship type, a particularly difficult matching. However there is a key to success in any pairing type; love and understanding gets you through. Any advisory/strategic tips on how one might evade the doom of a supervisor relationship type would be...
  3. [ENFP] How to love an ISFP - The supervisor relationship type.

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    This relationship type is a particularly difficult matching, however there is a key to success in any pairing type; love and understanding gets you through. I started this thread so other ENFP/ISFP couples might contribute motivational, perhaps even ground-breaking aspects of their experiences...
  4. [INFJ] Motivation- What Drives You?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've just started a new year of highschool. I've always been top of my class, but this year is different. I feel overloaded with work and my grades aren't where I'd like them to be. I discourage myself with the thought of my grades' impending doom even though I know thinking like this will lead...
  5. [INTJ] Tips for INTJs in school

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I was wondering if anyone had any tips for INTJ students. I've noticed many INTJs don't have the motivation to do well in school, myself included, because it's too easy, not compelling, etc. Currently, I'm on the verge of completely stopping my efforts in school. I want more time to...
  6. Do you use healthy rewards and do they work for you when trying to lose weight?

    Health and Fitness
    Healthy rewards - I've been struggling to define what they are for me ever since I encountered this idea on some fitblr blog on Tumblr (I understand this source is not the most ideal when it comes to exploring the meaning of the word "healthy"). For me, someone who has struggled with binge...
  7. [INFP] Motivational dry spell. Need tips on consistency!

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone!:happy: I am currently going through a motivational dry spell. It's like I can't find motivation anywhere. Everywhere I see something fun I'm thinking: "That probably would be fun, but meh." And then I end up feeling bad about being lazy. I feels like I'm bored, but I don't want...
  8. [INTP] Autonomy, mastery, purpose

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Autonomy - the urge to direct our own lives Mastery - the desire to get better and better at something that matters Purpose - the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves I think INTP's are constrained by these intrinsic motivators more than most types...
  9. [INTJ] Judgers' relationship to productivity and procrastination? Avoidant INTJs?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I am posting this because I've been trying to ascertain a very close friend's type. He is totally disinterested in MBTI and therefore of no help, but we had to take the MBTI test in school a few years ago and he tested as INTJ. At first it seemed to correspond perfectly, but I am very cautious...
  10. Any Entrepreneurs among us?

    Education & Career Talk
    Hi guys, I've recently taken an interest in entrepreneurship, trying to implement my ideas. I'm at university at the moment and I've been looking to join the enterprise society, getting my ideas out there and taking part in some competitions. I was hoping you guys would be able to give an...
  11. [INFP] The Manilla Folder Club: A School Experiment

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    The Manilla Folder Club So I'm a Junior in High School. For the first two years of high school, I didn't really do anything. However, when I was a freshman, there was a club called the Failure club.(ironic name, huh?) The aim of the club was to think of a big goal, and then come back every week...
  12. [INTJ] Proving people that you CAN

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey everyone, I just saw something through one of @bethdeth 's links and it hit me to finally ask other INTJ opinions on this matter. So do you actually prove people that you CAN do something when they say you can't?
  13. An ISTP in Distress

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Hey all, I am an ISTP, and I have been content with myself for the first sixteen years of my existence. I am very insensitive, I am not motivated in school or anything in life, really. I don't really put any effort into anything. However, almost nine months ago, I met this beautiful INFP...
  14. [ENTP] Is this bad?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hey ENTP friends, I have a fairly good ENTP friend who I believe is going through a depressing time. He's constantly telling me through text that his life is boring, he can't get any girls, and that my life is so much better than his. I've given up arguing and trying to make him feel better...
  15. [ENTP] Laziness

    ENTP Articles
    Is this not one of our greatest flaws? For me, I know the answer is undoubtedly, 110% yes. And I didn't have a problem with it until now-- when something I care about forces me to wrestle with my lazy nature. And let me just say, its HARD. Never have I ever had to really try at much...
  16. ENTP, asking for help

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I can't really figure out what we're supposed to be doing. Having succeeded living on what seems to be blind luck and a seemingly small supply of innate talent, I've now reached a point in the (SJ-dominated) sphere of the world where I feel that I will fail. Whether that means fail within...
  17. [INTP] Motivation - Its there, but inactive.

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This is kind of a continuation of my other thread about not being able to learn fast enough, but not really. I have this motivation to program and learn new things, it's always there, but some times I just can't get that motivation to actually motivate me. I'll sit down thinking I'm going to...
  18. [INFP] Deadliest Sin : Sloth or Pride? (Perfectionism + Idealism = Lack of Motivation?)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I think out of all of the Deadliest Sins, my greatest challenge is Sloth with it's parent, Pride, as a close second. More specifically, I think this can also apply to a fair few INFPs out there... of course, there are individual differences, but I'm interested in other people's opinions and...
  19. Interactive Fiction & The Exchange of Ideas

    Blog
    Anybody ever notice that interactive fiction and online role play is becoming increasingly rare? In the past year, I've communicated with well over a dozen or so people on writing, and every time, I receive an excuse on why they no longer write or role play extensively. As it turns out, I began...
  20. [ESFP] How to motivate an ESFP? (Specifically, to study o_o)

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    I have been handed this mammoth task by my COUGHirresponsibleCOUGH mother of "educating" my sister. So I'm looking for help here? I know studying is really boring and all, and it wouldn't matter if she could excel at last minute work, but she tells me she completely doesn't get what's going on...
