pain

  1. Health and Fitness
    OK, so aside from basting myself in Tiger Balm, and changing my pillow, is there anything else that works?
  2. General Psychology
    You think your mobile phone is vibrating... you check your phone... nope. It's not. You're hallucinating. Yes, really. Apparently there is a name for this: Phantom Vibration Syndrome. Thumb hurts? Have you heard of "texting thumb"? Did you know that too much screen time causes "myopia"?
  3. Sex and Relationships
    I felt in love with a man who has a lot of issues, one of them is some kind of mental problems (he is maybe covert narcissist, but it's not sure). Anyway. We met and there was instant chemistry between us. We had great communication. We were almost like best friends since the begging. He asked...
  4. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello fellow INTJ's Since last year I've started to feel very lonely it is almost indistinguishable from physical pain. It was last year I realized that I didn't have any close or good friend. When most of my peers started to go out it became clear to me that nobody really likes me and prefers...
  5. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    For a year and a half, I (the ENFP male) was dating an ESFJ (female). I broke it off. However, I've been recently reconsidering getting back together. We recently talked about where we failed each other, could have tried harder, and reflected on what we've learned apart. PROS: we have...
  6. General Psychology
    While doing some self analyzing, this theory came to me that people have 1 of 3 deepest fears at the root of a lot of their other fears. These are: Fear of Emotional/Mental Pain Fear of Humiliation/Embarrassment Fear of Being Flawed/Imperfect Yes, they are very oversimplified, but I love...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So as of the last year or so, after quite a few years of hard work and research that i've put in, I've reached a conclusion that I am suffering from what's called C-PTSD. I certainly have a narcissist (or someone that suffers from narcissism) in my life, and that person is my father (and others...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm not sure how to explain this. I'm not even sure if it's an INFJ thing. I could be the only one, but here goes... Reading is my favorite source of entertainment. I like to read sad, angst, emotional stories because I can sort of relate to the character that the angst is revolved around. It's...

    "So calm your ships." "I can't. It's not the ships. It's the storm." How can one control a storm? One cannot. You are but a shaking dot on an endless and furious sea. You are helpless and powerless. You are going to be swallowed and sucked right into the depths of a terrifying...
  10. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I would love to be someone who just bulldozes on through their workday/ school day whenever I have a cold or some minor illness, but I just don't *want* to. It's not that I'm wimpy, I'm just lazy. ... . . . And when I'm seriously sick with a flu, or sinusitis (I've had that once), or strep...
  11. Sex and Relationships
    Hi, I've got an experiment that could show whether people are biased against porn, but there's no function to include images without URL's. The experiment itself is simple, it involves looking at screenshots of pornstars facial expressions during sex scenes. The questions I would ask are: Do...
  12. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    So today I had been looking forward to seeing my ENFP closest friend for the first time in months (b/c of school pretty much), partially excited to see what he's learned and being able to share some of my discoveries as well. Generally when we see each other it's usually exciting and I feel like...
  13. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As of recently I have made a personal discovery about the origins of how and why I have a certain fear. And it also ties in with the Enneagram 4 labeled fear "that they have no identity or personal significance". Generally, with "friends" (both close and acquaintance) I tend to hide away or...
  14. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    If you, as an INTP, were in a committed relationship with someone - what would the one thing be that could hurt you the most? eg. Being told they pretended to love you, Cheating on you, Breaking up with you out of the blue, etc.? For me it would be being told that I'm not what they thought I...
  15. Blog
    Emotional pain is such a strange thing. When we fear, it's always fear of pain. The pain of loss. The pain of separation. The pain of growth. The pain of understanding. The pain of change. As instinctual animals, this served us well in regards to physical pain. As a primal being, if our main...
  16. Blog
    Tender mind so prone to anguish and fear Debilitated by the terror in such mundane things I once had a calm and placid lake for a conscience Until one day it became polluted and tumultuous Now even the slightest rock heaved in the wrong direction Will set off a ripple effect The lake is murky...
  17. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    There are times when I feel truly fulfilled and happy with my life and the happiness that comes along with it is extremely intense, to the point where it's uncomfortable or painful. Granted there are also many times where it's more like a breeze than a gust of wind, when I realize I'm just...
  18. Myers Briggs Forum
    So, I used to be best friends with a guy. We talked everyday. I kind of knew that he liked me, but i tried to brush it off and ignore it. Whenever he likes someone, he becomes obsessed with them. When he gets rejected, he becomes insanely self-destructive. I can't tell whether he's trying to...
