  1. What happens to a type when they are brought up in an opposing environment?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Basically what happens when a child of a certain type is brought up by people who dislike their type and discourage them from being the way they are? For example, what would happen to an NT brought up by NFs who continuously criticise them for not being emotional enough or for being cold...
  2. 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...
  3. Introvert and a parent? How do you manage?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi! I think the title kind of says it all, but I suppose an explanation wouldn't hurt... I've been thinking a lot about what it's like becoming a parent (I haven't done so yet), and while I realise the experience is unique to every individual, I still think being an introvert might come with...
  4. [INFJ] What do you think about parenthood?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I really like kids and I don't have anything against them, but my choice is not to have my own child (well I can still be great stepdad :). I think in near future our planet will be very harsh place to live, because of radical climate change, endless pollution, human overpopulation and I don't...
  5. INFP With ESTJ Father? Is he an ESTJ?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    So I'm pretty sure my dad is an ESTJ. He has had an extremely hard life and bad childhood experiences, so i'm not sure which parts of him are aspects of his personality, and which are possibly the results of a bad life. Maybe something is in between. But anyway, I'm pretty sure he's an ESTJ, but...
  6. We're the parents of the child we once were?

    General Psychology
    Hello everyone, A psychology teacher once said, "The person you are now is the parent of the child you once were from 3-6". Is it true? I somehow find it logical.
  7. [ESFJ] ISFP son, ESFJ mom.

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    So here's my situation. I'm the typical ISFP: I love spontaneity, love and value others own uniqueness, act based on my feelings, and most of all, I HATE being given orders. My mother is an ESFJ (I initially mistyped her before getting to understand more precisely about MBTI and because at the...
  8. [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...
  9. Motha!

    Blog
    Unlike most INTJ ladies, I decided to marry and become a mother. Yeah, I know. How very optimistic of me. If I were to do what came most naturally to me I would be living alone in an apartment surrounded by paintings, my library and music collection, compulsively making lists. But I decided to...
  10. [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?
  11. [INTJ] INTj's do you want to have kids of your own?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I'm an INTJ female & the idea of having kids is not appealing. I don't hate them ( I love my nieces & nephews) but I have no desire to have any. I saw another thread on this subject but I wanted to add a poll to the discussion. INTJ's what do you think?
  12. [INFP] Parents Whom You Wish Were Different

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    For example, an emotionally withholding mother that was extremely manipulative, and withheld her love when Mary displeased her throughout her life, an emotionally unavailable, distant father, the kind of man that did not show emotion or affection, was distant, authoritarian and lacked...
