  1. Try to type my parents!

    What's my personality type?
    Hey again, I'm very easily bored so I figured I could try to make you guess my parents' type, because I've been constantly trying to get them to understand MBTI and cognitive functions, and I've figured that if they'll get a run-through analysis then maybe they'll consider indulging into it...
  2. How to deal with unsupportive parents?

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    It's all in the title. I always expect support and reassurance from my parents, but I almost always meet with disappointment. They disregard eveything I want to do as silly, and emphasise my lack of experience and naiveness. They are always negative and always point what's dangerous and...
  3. Hearing Parents with Deaf Children.

    General Psychology
    I'm noticed that some hearing parents of deaf or hearing impaired children do not want their children to learn a sign language. Other hearing parents will allow this, but aren't interested in learning that sign language themselves. What might be the reasons for these things happening ~ why...
  4. So, yeah. My parents are cult leaders.

    The title pretty much explains a very strange part of my life. Thankfully, I no longer live with my crazy Pentecostal parents. I am an INFP who loves art, music, and poetry. I guess you could say I am your typical INFP. But at the same time, I feel that I could very easily be typed as an INTP...
  5. [ISTJ] ISTJ and ESFJ

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    I literally only have one question about these 2, aka my parents... How has their relationship survived for 21 years?
  6. [Generation Z] Anyone here have 80s born Millennial parents?

    Generation Z Forum
    The question above. My parents are GenXers, so I'd like to hear what it's like to have Millennial parents.
  7. [INTP] Write your parents´type and describe your relationship with them.

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I´m new in this site, and I´m curious if anyone else has issues with connecting with their parents. I listen to my friends when they talk about their parents and most of them have good relationships. Of course, they´re always issues, but I personally don´t feel a strong connection with my...
  8. What Type Are Your Parents?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I find this to be an interesting experiment... What type are you? and... What type are your parents? I find this interesting very interesting because my parents are both SFJs and I find it ironic that with the way they think and bring up their children, they can still manage to raise 3 N(T...
  9. [INFP] Difficult relationship with father

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone! I am not sure if this is a topic that fits well into the INFP category because it could actually concern everyone, but I hope this is still a good place to write this :) The main problem is that since i was a young child i have always had problems with my dad. I know that deep...
  10. What is wrong with my dad?? [LONG]

    General Psychology
    So recently I've been trying to use psychology to better understand my dad, since he acts really strange. I tried to type him, but I think he may have some sort of mental illness that we (my family) aren't aware of, so it makes it difficult. I would really like some help to figure out whats...
  11. Can you be "trained" to act like a certain type?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I was wondering if its possible for someone to be trained/conditioned so much that they start acting like a type different than their own type. They still have their actual type but around people they put up a mask of another due to being taught to be another type. I personally believe you...
  12. Do you talk to your Parents about sex or relationships?

    Sex and Relationships
    I once over heard my father say "she is 18 now, i don't care what she does", to someone who asked him if i was single. That is the only clue i have of what his expectations are. How did it work in your household? How do you feel about it?
  13. 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...

    Advice Center
    How does some one deal with parents who are clearly more sensory. When some of the stuff you are interested in, they complain about you being lazy ,when you are not .it is just different.
  15. Effect of Parental Figures On Type Develoupment

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I was curious to see if any lines could be drawn between the mbti/enneagram types of parents comparatively to their children. I was curious because while I was on Tumblr (yes, not the most accurate source of information, but a source nonetheless) I came across a person who typed themselves very...
  16. Our Parents MBTI's

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hey guys, I just had an idea. I think it would be interesting if we all said our Parents and Grandparents MBTI and Enneagrams, to see if we can spot any patterns. I’ll Start! I am an ENTP 8w7. My Dad is a ENFJ 3w2, and my Mom is a INFP 9w1. My Paternal Grandfather is a ESTP 8w7, and my...
  17. [ENTP] ESTJ mother

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    ESTJ mother struggles So I grew up with an ESTJ mother and INFP father, and as you can imagine, I was a confused child growing up. My mother was always very dominating and offered no type of emotional support what so ever, and my father was always getting "in trouble" from my mother for not...
  18. [INFJ] Relationship with parents

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everybody! This thought came to me while i had a minor debate with my father last night: How well would you bond with your parents if they were your age? Would you even bother introducing? How would you behave around them? I guess than the same blood is forcing us to work the our...
  19. How do I sort out this issue within my family?

    Advice Center
    My parent's just don't support me, in any way except financially (and trust me when I say that is begrudgingly). It's lately gotten really hard for me. I'm going through a difficult patch in college right now with exams, along with personal problems (long-term depression battle), and they know...
  20. Something's really off with my parents, please help me

    Advice Center
    Hello, I am 17 years old and my name is Lia. For almost a year now I've been noticing a weird behavior of my dad. I think he might be cheating on my mother but obviously I wouldn't know for sure even though I have some proof and I am an INFJ. Intuition, you know. But I've read a part of a chat...
