  1. 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...
  2. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello INFP's: Today I was talking with my sister about the funny and ugly parts of having kids. So, I started to wondering how good is the score of an INFP in the game of parenting. If you have kids please share your experience here. Will be fantastic to read them. I have some precise...
  3. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Taken from the EnneaApp by Lori Ohlson. I'm unsure if this has been posted on PerC before, but I wanted to share in case it isn't. Type 1 These children felt heavily criticized, punished, or not good enough. Household rules may have felt inconsistent. As such, they became obsessed with being...
  4. General Psychology
    I really think that every generation will change how their parent due to society, different areas of living, income and personality types. How do you plan/how do you already raise kids different than how you were raised yourself. Me: I'm 19 turning 20, I do not have kids yet and as an only...
  5. Generation Z Forum
    Disclaimer: This is NOT a thread to debate where a generation starts and ends, we have too many of those shitty threads already on this site, we don't need more. For the sake of this page, we're using McCrindle's fifteen year theory; 1965-1979 are X, 1980-1994 are Y, 1995-2009 are Z, 2010-2024...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    My mother is an INFP and I am an INFJ. We both have trouble in our relationship when each of us are going through tough times, neither of us can help the other in the ways the other wants. When I am going through a stressful time, my mother offers advice rather than empathy. This, rather than...
  7. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hey everyone! So my little brother just turned 13 and is an INTP. As an INFP, I can relate to him in some ways, but there are certain things I just don't understand about him, especially at his age and the fact that he's a boy. Basically what I'm trying to ask for is hobbies and interests you...
  8. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    My mom is an NF, as is her mother. I have a very close relationship with my mom, as she does with hers. I'm definitely biased as the daughter of an NF and as an NF myself, but I think NF's are typically good mothers (or parents in general). This isn't to say that any other types aren't, far from...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Any ideas why INFPs are more likely to be stay-at-home parents? Our company just finished a survey and we found that INFPs were more likely to stay home with their kids than all the other types. What do you think? If you have kids, do you stay home with them (and do you like it)? If you don't...
  10. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    INFPs, if you aren't already a parent, do you hope to be one someday? Why or why not?
  11. General Psychology
    My 8yo is going to counseling for ADHD but he's not on any medication yet-- he has an appointment to be evaluated for meds in NOVEMBER-- people always talk about kids being overmedicated but counseling alone doesn't seem to help much, in fact it may be just increasing his frustration, because he...
  12. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    Hello, I am desperate (and that's not hyperbole) for help on how to parent my 4 year old ISFP boy. I was reading some of the posts here and recognize how my personality type can be detrimental to my son's. I want to raise him to be the most mature, healthy ISFP he can be and I realize that he is...
  13. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Hi everyone, Since I've made very positive and intriguing experiences with bringing things I find challeninging to deal with in everyday life to this community, I have decided to do so with a problem I've been having with my mother. This may turn out to be kind of rambly since I feel quite...
  14. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I'm curious about people's experiences with ENFP parenting -- either being one or having one. In your experience, what's the good, the bad, and the ugly about being an ENFP parent or being raised by an ENFP?
  15. Myers Briggs Forum
    I am wondering what others think about being an Introvert and having kids. If you have kids, what are your challenges and strengths? What do you hope for your kids? If you do not have kids or have a introverted parent (or two) how does that effect you? I have a daughter and I am not sure where...

  19. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    So recently I've been getting very interested in personality types and thought I might be able to understand my daughter a bit more if I knew her type. I found a test for parents/caregivers to figure it out. It said she is an ENP (apparently at her age which is 6, she is still developing in her...
