  1. Existential Dread and Depression

    General Psychology
    First post, not sure if I'm in the right category for this discussion, but here goes. I'm existentially depressed. My family thinks it's just a phase, or that I'm not "actually" depressed, just an existentialist. I'm 25 and finishing my first degree in nursing. I've tried, and succeeded, at...
  2. [INFJ] Why Nietzsche was an INFJ not an INTJ

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    This is my first post on Personality Cafe :tongue: German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche is generally typed as an INTJ however upon studying his works and his personal life it becomes obvious that he is most likely an INFJ. This is not surprising as many male INFJ's are mistyped as INTJ's...
  3. [INFP] To be or not to be... (a little philosophy)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So... I was extremely bored and didn't feel like doing anything this morning and I felt like reading some of the Wikipedia page of Schopenhauer and then Nietzsche... They have opposite views in the value of life. It's quite interesting so I thought I could share it here. Schopenhauer believes...
  4. Nietzsche on Ti and Fi

    Cognitive Functions
    Hello. here: is what Nietzsche actually said. I am not sure I can "prove" that he's talking about Ti and Fi, but I will list some sentences where it manifests itself the clearest, and do some explanation to show how it can be connected to MBTI. But before that...
  5. [INFP] Existentialism and all that

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So this post might seem somewhat "NT"ish but I assure you that every time I've taken this test I've gotten infp, or occasionally infj, ANYWAY, I'm 18, in grade 12 and confused as fuck. Here's a big old paper I wrote about myself for school, it sums my views up pretty nifty like. "My name is...
  6. [INFJ] Attitude Towards Nietzsche

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm new to this forum, though I've been googling its contents for perhaps more than a year. I would like to ask about your attitudes towards Nietzschean philosophy. Perhaps it's just me, but whenever I studied him I felt a knee-jerk disapproval of the way it was being discussed in class. I...
  7. [Enneagram Type 5] Favourite philosophers?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I believe that philosophers are some of the most valuable members of society, because they shape the way society functions. Who is your favourite philosopher, and what makes you agree with him or her? Personally, I have a deep admiration for Nietzsche, as you can see by my signature. (For the...
  8. [Enneagram Type 5] Describe your inner world.

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    All fives have one. Sometimes they're hard to put into words because they're so complex and multilayered. But nevertheless they are an interesting look into the workings of the mind. Mine is made up of all my collective musings and observations. I like to call it Überstadt, when I think of it...
