  1. Opening up as an INFJ

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everybody, I'm an INFJ male (like one of ten on Earth), and this is my first post so I hope I'm putting this in the right place! I'm wondering how other INFJs open up at the start of a new relationship
  2. [INTJ] How do you gain a female INTJ's trust? How can I make her open up to me?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I have a childhood friend who recently tested as an INTJ - and suddenly, so much seemed to make sense about her. All throughout elementary school, she was very opinionated, social, narcissistic and at times even bossy. We used to get into passive-aggressive fights and she would leave me out of...
  3. [INTJ] What should you do when an INTJ talks about their problems to you?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    An INTJ talked to me (online) about some stuff he was going through, pretty much just informing me about the things he was experiencing and then expressed desire to achieve certain things (nothing I had power over). I wasn't really sure what he wanted me to do, or what I could do to provide...
  4. [Enneagram Type 4] Fear of being insignificant and reluctance to open up

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I've noticed that when someone tries to get me to open up to them, I'm always reluctant to because I'm afraid that they'll be disappointed by what they find. I'm afraid that I'm replaceable and that it's only a matter of time before they find something that's not great about me or they find...
  5. [INFJ] How exactly do you open up in relationships?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    (I'm new here, so sorry if this is already a thread or if I've done anything else wrong, aha. :unsure: ) As long as I can remember, I've been an extremely private person. I prefer not to share my woes with others (even now, sharing a problem with complete strangers is a bit awkward for me). My...
  6. [INFJ] Talking about yourself to get others to open up?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm talking about deeper or more personal conversations. I know about 4 INFJs (there's a high NF population in my area), some more than others but I came to a realization a few days ago while reading another INFJ post that the behavior I was taking as just eagerness to share might have been...
  7. [Enneagram Type 4] Opening up as a type 4

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hi, I am 4w5 and i find it somewhat hard to share my emotions verbal. Other people tell me most times that I seem like a happy person, and most people generally find me likeable. I can talk and joke also I am a good listener. Myself, I usually don't really share deep personal information with...
  8. Trouble opening up

    General Psychology
    This, I have realised, is a recurrent problem for me when it comes to forming relationships with people, be it romantic ones, friendships, heck...even with platonic friends (of course, it becomes a bigger problem with closer relationships). It is incredibly difficult for me to open up...
