  1. [INTP] How to handle intense emotions towards your child?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This is a question to you INTP parents out there. To make it short: I have a 7 yr old daughter who really helps me get in touch with my feelings. No one else in the whole world makes me as angry and irritated as she does. She is all feeling and a very different being than I am. She goes from...
  2. [INFJ] Toxic/codependent parenting

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi guys, I need help. If you don't want the full story, here are the main questions: Do you have a toxic parent/parents and have you done anything to help the relationship? Did it work? ----- A little bit of background: I am the youngest of three girls and grew up in a two-parent home. I was...
  3. [ENTP] Anyone have an ENTP Dad?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I recently got into Mbti and I'm convinced that my dad is an ENTP. At first I thought that he might be an ENFP like me but after studying the cognitive functions, I'm pretty sure he's an ENTP. Yes, both of us lead with Ne. That's why I grew up as the daughter he understood best and why I relate...
  4. [ENFP] Getting an ENFP Dad to Plan and Schedule?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I made this account specifically to ask this question as I am at a loss, and who better to ask about ENFPs than ENFPs themselves? My ENFP father, who I live with, is constantly breaking plans, going against schedules, you get the idea hopefully. It's like he has no concept of time and does not...
  5. Are you/Would you be a "good" parent?

    Member Polls
    As stupid as this question may sound, I'd like to read your opinions on this one. I expect everyone to be honest. Please include your MBTI/Cognitive preferences and any other personality-related information you find relevant to your answer. I'm most probably an ISTJ, Enneagram 6(w5), somewhat...
  6. [INFJ] What MBTI type would you want your child to be? Would you try to influence it?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I love being an infj and I think I would want any child of mine to be infj or intj because I think that's how I would get along with them/understand them/be able to support them the most (and think of all the interesting conversations we could have! Like I have with my infj/intj parents), but...
  7. [ISTP] "Scrooge"

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I don't know if this is type-related or not, but I'm gonna say it anyway. Do ISTP parents take interest in what their children are like? My dad, for example, does everything one could expect from a good parent but I feel like he barely knows me as a person. He seems to not care what I get up to...

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hello PerC ISFJ's! I've been reading through some posts about ISFJ relationships (particularly parent-child relationships) and I've been very impressed and helped by your insights. I'm trying to get a better grasp on how to manage my relationship with my mother. I've basically been resorting...
  9. [INTP] My parents are worried about me?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hey everyone, So apparently my brother overheard my parents having a conversation about me, and my mother saying she was 'worried' about me because I stay in my room all day (keep in mind I'm quite young). I don't exactly know what she thinks I'm doing, but I can tell you first hand all I do is...
  10. Extroverted Parents Trying To Change Their Introverted Child

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Summer vacation! The best time of the year for a kid in school... Right... Well not for me. You see my ENFJ (I am an INTP) mother always tries to make me more extroverted (I am already outgoing because of they way she raised me) and summer seems to be when she does this the most, she always...
  11. [INFP] INFPs as Parents

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi everybody) I'm happy to have a baby son who's 2 months now.:laughing: I got curious about an INFP (who is always a child)) in the role of a parent - the good things, funny stories and possible mistakes and everything like that, you know. So INFP parents and all who have an INFP Mom and/or...
  12. [ESTP] Help me fellow ESTPs!

    ESTP Forum - The Doers
    At school I was the prime example of an ESTP, I was friends with everyone and enjoyed being in a large group. As a child I had to be constantly occupied and became agitated very quickly if I stayed in the house for too long. However since my parents got divorced (5 years ago) I have been...
  13. [INTJ] [INTJ] What is love?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I don’t believe in love; the definitions tend to be very vague and inaccurate and there are several types of love. Love is a very abstract and intangible concept to grasp. What is this love that humans speak of? You can go to any dictionary or encyclopedia to look up a definition, but what is it...
  14. [ISTJ] INTP having a horrible relationship with ISTJ dad, need help.

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Background: I'm attending a university right now, currently a sophomore. My dad divorced my step-mom when I was 9 and I moved to the United States from Korea with my ISTJ father and ESTJ sister. If you skim any INTP profile, it seems to me like it is the absolute opposite of guardian; and from...
  15. [ENTP] ENTP as Caregiver

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Stop laughing, I'm serious! All joking aside, I'm wondering about ENTPs as parents or pet-owners, etc. If you are one, what's your approach like? If you aren't one but know one, what do you notice about them in that role? Speaking from personal experience, I've discovered that I do have a...

  17. [ENTP] ENTPs, IxSPs and "Compromise"

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    EDIT: Sorry, I messed up the title! That was supposed to say IxFPs! Hi, I am an ISFP seeking information and insight about the way an ENTP mother might be justifying her thinking on a sore subject. I mean, what do I do when a rationalist won't listen to reason? Some questions: -Why would...

  19. [Generation Y] How will you raise your children and structure your family?

    Generation Y Forum
    Anyone at the time in their lives where you're talking about how you're going to raise kids? Or already starting your family? What if you don't have plans for children at all, or you and your SO disagree about this? What about your experiences or personality led you to your conclusions?

    Hello everyone I need help. I'm an INFP with an ESTJ son. He's all grown up (30 yrs old), and we have had our ups and downs, but a couple years ago he joined the family restaurant business (at my suggestion), and it was nightmare from almost day one. I couldn't do anything right. I'm the mom...
