nihilism

  1. General Psychology
    Hi! I'm not new to PC but it's been so long since I've been here that I've forgotten my login info, haha! Anyways, something I've always found very interesting about people, and rather distinguishing between them is whether or not they have either hope or despair behind their motivations and...

    What is the meaning of life? As someone who has been a charity worker for four years, I thought this would be easy to answer. But since quitting my job due to bullying, those rose-colored glasses have been taken off and now all I see is a world that is eventually going to end without any of our...
  4. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    With the following article being constantly recommended to me by other INTP's and most give the theory credence, how would you describe your relationship with this theory? Do you disagree or have never felt anything like this? The Maze Metaphor: A Means of Understanding INTPs
  5. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I have found some sources saying that INTJ are the most nihilistic type. That does not mean that all INTJ are nihilistic but that there exists the highest chances of nihilism in this personality type. I am INTJ and i am a nihilist. I would like to know your opinions on that.
  6. Intro
    I figure that I might as well use the format from the "You, Me, & Everyone Else We Know" thread. Personal: What do you preferred to be called? 光の聖人 (Hikari No Seijin) Any nicknames? Seijin Male/Woman/Trans? Male Location: Where were you originally born? Kansas Where do you love now...
  7. 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...
  8. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    My best friend is a sx 5w6. And over the past year he has become a misanthropic, world-avoiding, Trent Reznor-glorifying nihilist. All he does is exist. And barely that. He honestly believes that there is no point to his existence. He sees no point in delaying the inevitable-- death. After...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So, what I was thinking (in a disjointed way) is that these subjects may relate strongly to INTPs: Minimalism Nihilism Freedom Lack of attachment to desire Overwhelming attachment to desire Detached view of human patterns of repeating desires (and their payoffs) A lack of understanding about...
  10. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm just wondering recently.. have any of you, especially INFPs, often feel sooo damn 'trapped' in this so-called 'Real world'??.. the thread Existential Depression have often served as perhaps the main basic explanation as to why I often feel that no matter what, these days especially, I often...
  11. Blog
    I've found my manta, my peaceful center. The idea upon which to found my identity and work outward from. Reality is only a simulation. Everything is basically bullshit. We love to play games, and make-believe, and pretend things matter, but they don't. Not really. It's pointless to become so...
  12. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    For the average person, I would think, the only things that really matter are manmade constructs and creations. E.g., What's on TV, who the president is, what is fashionable to wear. When everything's spoken for and global climate change claims us, nothing will be left of our civilization around...
