  2. [INFP] Paradoxical Extravert Shutout (PES)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, I made up this term to describe something that happens to me and that I hate very much. Maybe it happens to you too. So, introverts are seen as "shy", perhaps, because we don't initiate social things as much. And extraverts aren't shy because they are more out there and social. Paradoxical...

  4. The best advice.

    Advice Center
    Take my advice: never take nobody's advice. Because people like to give advice, which if you take their advice, will ensure that you end up just like they did. A paradox, I know. Though it doesn't look very helpful it probably is. Just decide things on your own. Awk, I did it again!
  5. Halting at the vibration...

    Intro
    Hello, there. I've been a dormant member since sometime in 2013. I think I logged in once and never returned... I didn't really have proper access to posting threads or replies, and I suppose in another way I simply wasn't ready to dive in here. I have taken a few tests, done some research...
  6. [ENTP] Paradoxes, Contradictions and General Logic Problems

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hey, do anyone of you have any paradoxes, contradictive dilemmas or generally screwy-logic problems to share? I've got this one called a Hypocrite Paradox... Hypocrite Paradox: The scenario when one calls another a hypocrite for doing something they criticize others for doing, but that oneself...
  7. [INFP] INFP's and Paradoxes?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Are idealists more prone to inner paradoxes? Are paradoxes fundamental to the INFP type? For some reason, as I have pooled information about my personality type, I keep coming to the realization that my inner self is always at odds with itself and that I am full of paradoxes. I'm not sure if...
  8. [INTP] Mind Cage

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So, in this other wonderfully amusing thread there was a reference to this Zeno's Paradox. Achilles and the tortoise Now, looking this from the intangible theoretical PoV, it's a paradox. But in practical reality Achilles would reach the tortoise and surpass it. At one point the distance...
  9. [INFJ] INFJ Paradoxes

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    After browsing through another thread, I came across lots of posts that alluded to the INFJ paradox. I only saw a few other posts that gave examples of this paradox and the one quoted below was one of them. What are some concrete examples of the INFJ paradox in your life?
  10. [ENFP] How do you reconnect with your F.i.?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    This thread is for those ENFPs, like myself, that find ourselves dominated by our Extroverted Intuition or "N.e." function too much. I'm having a chat with a newer friend of mine as we speak, an ENFP not of these boards. Just explained the N.e./F.i. paradox, and we're getting pretty deep...
  11. Quotes to Remember

    Blog
    I finished the book, "Honor Your Self: The Inner Art of Giving and Receiving: Embracing the power of paradox in your life" by Patricia Spadaro and decided to quote the truths she shares here so they are handy for reference (since I am prone to forget them).
