obsession

  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    I discovered the MBTI a bit less than 2 years ago. I've been studying it A LOT, analyzing people constantly, but after some months, I stopped because I couldn't relate to my "type" (I thought I was an INTP), so I didn't give MBTI much credits, and also, because I was already obsessed with...
  2. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi everyone! Long-time lurker here. I'm asking this question because I've found it's pretty much the main emotional instability in my life at the moment. I'm currently a finalist in my week of exams, and usually during this period I'm in ENFP hyperactic panic monster mode pulling all-nighters...
  3. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Anybody else feel like they constantly need praise or reassurance in order to feel worthwhile or productive? I try to remain somewhat detached about it, reminding myself that most (not all!) of the time, it's what I think that matters more than what others think. But I internalize the world...
  4. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I'm a twenty year old ISFP college sophomore student, and I have been struggling with motivation and caring about school since last year, and I don't totally know why. Last year, I was really excited to be auditioning for vocal performance at my school, and I was rejected. Since then, I have...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi all, I was wanting to know what your thoughts were on a correlation between the INFJ MBTI type and addiction. I know that INFJ's in the "Se Grip" can over indulge in things such as binge eating and obsessive sensation based behaviours, do you think there is a connection? As an INFJ myself...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Original idea from reddit: A fascination with absurdity, surrealism and the dark side of humanity : infp ) I suppose in the grand scheme many of us have lived relatively sheltered lives. That isn't to say we haven't experienced challenges or even trauma, but rather that there are soo many...
  7. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey Everybody, It's been a while since my last post on here; I got such a positive response the last time I put my problems down that I thought I'd do it again! I've been good friends with a particular girl for about 5 years now. She was dating another close friend of mine for several years...
  8. Sex and Relationships
    Why has popular culture and media become obessed with sex even to the exclusion of all else?~ Often I hear of today's culture and media obsession with sex's extreme spectrums such as either "physical only relationships" or "1950's values of love: 1 only true love, marriage, children, blah blah...
  9. Sex and Relationships
    I am a woman...nearly 45 years old. When I was 15 my bestfriend and I met a guy (who was in grad school) I will call him guitar guy...well the guitar guy had a roommate (in grad school also) I will call him gargoyle...gargoyle liked me. The very first time I ever saw this gargoyle, he sat...
  10. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I think I have reason to doubt my sanity. Haha, okay, it's not that bad yet, but I have a horrible habit of getting infatuated with guys who are sort of strangers. I want to see if you ENFPs experienced this before. I first became infatuated with my friend's brother - but I had hardly spoken to...
  11. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    I'm going to sleep now, but this idea went through my head and maybe this is exactly what I want. Do you guys have any obsessions or passion for something that leads to you creating something of value through it? I Have a friend and she is obsessed with books, a certain show she loves and...

    There are people in the world, they are obsessed. Their minds told them, their obsession is the absolute truth. And they make it sound like other people's opinions are deviant, wrong, sick and twisted to the core. And I couldn't understand it. I can't 'brain' it. We live like we know everything...
  13. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So i was wondering if any fellow INTJ's were somewhat obsessed with remaining fit and healthy. Call it being paranoid or edgy but i want to push my physical performance to the limit, for some reason my mindset forces me to prep myself against anything life could throw at me, however unlikely. I...
  14. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    So, I'm not sure if I'm odd in this department, but I like blunt women, there is nothing sexier to me than a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it... For instance, some of the most passionate relationships I have had were initiated by her, and women I wouldn't normally...
  15. Myers Briggs Forum
    This is not a post to bash sensors, I'm not saying any one type is better than the other! Just putting it out there, not trying to hurt anyones feelings. I had a strong need to start with that, the thought of hurting innocent strangers feelings makes me cringe internally. ENFP problems. I...
  16. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hello My fellow Personality Cafe members. I'm new here, and this is my first post. This is my story. All I'm trying to accomplish is to succeed in my life. [Before we begin let me say that I took the MBTI test first time around 3 years ago with the aid of a professional career consultant at my...

    Well, my four day weekend has finally come to an end sadly. :( I have really enjoyed the time off of work, but it seems that my weekend has ended on an unusual note and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I got a new Enneagram book today and dove into it right away because I just can't seem to...
  18. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I am (vaguely) interested in the Brony phenomenon. Specifically, why Bronies talk about this as if it's a part of themselves and they need to "come out" to everyone they talk to. Perhaps it isn't this way for all, but it does seem very common. I have a range of interests that even people I know...
  19. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've had this obsession with high places ever since I was little. I wanted to be as close to the sky as I could be. I wanted to watch the people below, how they interacted. I wanted to read their minds from above. I wanted to know when I was needed. I wanted to see what other little girls were...
  20. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Hi Guys, I'm new here and found this site after I took the MB test with a friend. I'm an ENFP - My obsession is helping people grow and overcome fear and reach their potential, I guess I've had 3 very intense friendships in my life where I've committed everything to helping that person break...
