  1. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    The Type I have dated and loved most often has been ENTP. I adore this Type and feel closely connected to them. However, I have found that several of the ENTP men I adored had this habit which I found truly difficult to handle. When in a bad mood, they would just rant and rant and rant about...
  2. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Whether its hypothetical or based on true experiences, INFPs please share. Want to know more about what can provoke INFP into feeling uncomfortable and maybe laying on feelings of stress. Right now, I'm in a situation where I'm being assessed on my ability to participate in group discussion of...
  3. What's my personality type?
    Hello! Let's take concrete situations to type myself: SItuaTIon oNE: (yes i HAD to do that) We had some hours to prepare for the sociology exam, and there were 4 people in total who took that exam, so here's the people in the group: My sociology teacher- ENFJ/ESFJ (i think enfj because we...
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    For me, I tend to withdraw and/or shrink away from pessimistic people. Generally, when I share my (very optimistic) thoughts with them, they shoot them down, which makes me feel very upset. Because of my high sensitivity, negative energy often makes me feel very drained. I try to surround myself...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As of recently I have made a personal discovery about the origins of how and why I have a certain fear. And it also ties in with the Enneagram 4 labeled fear "that they have no identity or personal significance". Generally, with "friends" (both close and acquaintance) I tend to hide away or...
  6. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    So, I'm an ISTJ and this is my first year teaching elementary school... third grade. There are so many things going for me at this school... I have a small class, only teach three subjects (twice a day), and though I have some trouble kids, it's a small portion of the class. The faculty is...
  7. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    Hi everyone! I have a friend, a male friend, who is very-very dear to me, and who I think is an ISFP (for many-many reasons). He's really not a talkative person and does not explain or expose his inner workings normally - so I could not ask him in person what I am about to ask you guys, in hope...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So I've struggled since i was young, (about 12) (i'm now almost 17) with negative thinking and over thinking, and being really sensitive to stuff. Through out those years it has gotten worse-ish but for a while i was able to have this battling mindset of optimistic (logically optimistic and some...
  9. General Psychology
    Or so says this article I stumbled across on Reddit yesterday: The notion that being negative can actually help us think through our decisions more carefully seems unfounded. On the other hand, they say that negative advertising is very effective at driving home a particular message (e.g...
  10. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Anyone here familiar with Tritypes and the Type Six ones? I have a friend who is either 672 or 762 but he doesn't seem positive enough to be a Seven. As a very depressed alcoholic with childhood trauma, he mainly expresses traits in negative ways. Trying to gain some insight. He's very into...
  11. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Just perusing through the posts, quotes, and pictures of my fellow INTP, and I've noticed a rather sad trend. Many of you seem wrapped up in negative, masochistic mindsets. I for one see a mind set as a result of what aspects of your thoughts and nature that you glorify and identify with. So...
  12. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm more of an ambivert (though I'm Fe dom) so I don't know if this applies to through and through extroverts XD Surely this kinda conversation can't energize you though =') I know for me, at least when I'm talking one to one, as soon as the conversation turns negative I start to feel the...
  13. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I seriously don't know what to do with my emotions when they come up, I keep debating whether I should ignore them so I don't over think it and make it worse or if I should acknowledge them and then do something about it, in which case I have no clue what I could do to make it better. I just...

  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have an ISTJ mom and I'm interested in hearing from other INFJs who have ISTJ parents! Perhaps some experiences, positive or negative? What makes your relationship work? What roadblocks have you found? Share whatever you are comfortable with!:) My experience... I admire my ISTJ mom's laser...
  16. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Mine & my husband's best friend Dan(INFP, well-developed T) has been dating an ISFJ girl. We recently found out through some unfortunate events that she's a pathological liar(we're 99.99% sure, nothing else fits). I know she's an ISFJ(an unhealthy one at that), I could bet my life she's a 6w7...
  17. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi. I'm new here and this is my first post. I'd like to share something very important to me that has shaped who I am today. I'm hopeful there are other INFJ's out there who can relate in some way. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one going through this (but I doubt that's the case). I have...
  18. Sex and Relationships
    List the Personality Type of the person you have (or are) dating, and describe what the relationship was like! Positives and negatives (on both your parts!) similarities and differences. Infact, maybe say how you responded to them or how you were surprised by your responce to them. Expose...
  19. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    Hey guys. Wondering how do ISFPs deal with negativity against them? Just had a bad breakup and now my ex and her friends are basically out against me. I'm not looking forward to facing or much less seeing them. So how have you guys dealt with negativity in the past?
  20. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    How do you ENFPs stay positive? I'm going through a negative phase and I DON'T LIKE IT AT ALL. So how do enfp's maintain your positivity?
