  1. [INFP] Tips for having a highly extraverted career?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I got a new job—yay! Still a band directing and elementary job, like my previous one, but I will be the only music teacher in the school district. I think it will be better for me because I hated working with the lead band director at the other school. Now I am (somewhat) free to do what I want...

  6. [INFP] Feeling Really Overwhelmed

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've certainly learned my lesson about setting boundaries with friends. I live in New York, and have a bunch of friends who want to come and visit me from my home state. And as much as I adore some of my close friends, I feel really overwhelmed having them come over one after the other. To cap...
  7. [INTP] Overwhelmed With The Idea of Being Overwhelmed

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    How do you deal with being overwhelmed by tasks or things you do that overwhelms you? Do your thoughts and emotions get all scattered? When I'm overwhelmed, I usually think about the idea of being overwhelmed and stopping for some time. Then, inferior FE might kick in and I might just lay there...
  8. [INTP] School/ work/ basic life survival?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi, I'm a 24yo second semester freshman in college and working about 20 hrs per week. I realize this is not very much, but I feel completely overwhelmed and worn out. I look at my schedule and see a lot of free time, but I'm not really sure where it goes. I'm majoring in Biology which I find...
  9. [INTP] INTPs overwhelmed with overly busy schedules

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi guys, I was just wondering if any fellow INTPs get easily overwhelmed when they have a lot of things on their schedule and a lot of set plans for the future. I have a pretty busy week and have quite a bit of stuff to do but I feel like my anxiety and overthinking is a bit over the top. I...
  10. I'm an INFJ, and I swear I'm not bipolar or crazy. Now i just have to convince myself

    Intro
    For years, I thought something wasn't right with me. I was so confused as to why I felt "tuned in" to everyone and everything around me and yet nobody around me seemed to notice anything. I took this and ran with it, thinking my calling in life was to become an anthropologist, and so I did. I...
  11. Impression 49 ~Nocturne of Shadow~

    Blog
    So, I made some observations about myself around this cycle. Apparently when I have PMDD/PMS, my Fe goes through the roof. I could feel everything, and everyone felt so against my skin today. All I did was go to the shops to get some Christmas presents...go get some food, and some coffee...
  12. Kinda overwhelmed already...where do I start??!

    Intro
    Hello, So I'm new, and have been playing around with this site since yesterday after googling "chatrooms for semi-intellectuals", haha. There is sooo much here, and I just don't know where to start (other than filling in some of my profile and uploading a pic). Apparently, I am an ISTP, for...
  13. Just Too Much

    Blog
    I have been wanting to put this into words for a really long time. I know I'm too tired to really do an adequate job; but I just have to get it 'out' so I can put it to rest. I can't seem to express the depth of 'overwhelm' I feel at least once a week when I consider the sheer magnitude of the...
  14. [ISFJ] Defensiveness in Overwhelming Situations

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    This one might be aimed at middle-aged ISFJs or ISFJs who've found themselves in situations where the problematic factors have built up over long periods of time and pushed you to your absolute limits. I recently realized my mom is ISFJ (I always thought she was ESFJ because she's so inclined...
  15. [INFP] Relationship Struggles - please help [beware I wrote a book] :(

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    [BACKGROUND] I did a personality test when (2007 or 2008) I did Psych 101. It was interesting to me at the time, however I didn't really think too much about it past that class, and definitely didn't commit my type to memory. Back in 2010, I considered myself so lucky. I came back from a...
  16. Massive Chronic Overwhelmedness

    Blog
    I've thought this before, but sometimes the realisation just strikes me. I think all my life I've pretty much been too overwhelmed to really do anything with myself. Like, on a grand scale, like goals, like doing something with my life. Actually this is pretty well demonstrated in smaller...
  17. A Quick Update

    Blog
    Bahhhh I'm plagued by a thousand interesting thoughts despite an ominous deadline; I have to be ready for my organic chem exam by 6:15! Okay, I guess I'll boil down my existence into some key points to be discussed and contemplated later. Just so I don't explode. I read four chapters for...
  18. One Crazy Week

    Blog
    This week has been nuts. I sense my life accelerating into something real and it's overwhelming. My academic career has begun and I'm dizzy from all of the opportunities this step entails. My social life has been reborn from the pitiful self-inflicted isolation of last term, bringing about new...
