  1. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Recently I've been feeling a bit stressed and not as happy as I have been in the past. Over the last few days, I have started to question "why is this?". I think the main reason why this is happening to me is a lack of patience. Although I have come a long way in terms of personal development...
  2. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hey everyone I'm new to the forum, and new to the enneagram. I took the MB a long time ago and have always been either IE/NFP, and my extraversion has dominated as I've gotten older, fairly substantially. I grew up in a horrifically dysfunctional home, passed around to different family members &...
  3. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    oooh, I'm so happy I have found enneagrams. I know we would be over otherwise. Our story in short. We met about 8 months ago. We have fallen apart twice because of his typical 5 detachment and my (type 6) neediness and uncertainty. He is very scared because his ex-girlfriend was very jealous and...
  4. Myers Briggs Forum
    I was wondering whether a particular preference (or combination of preferences) are more likely to result in a lack of patience. I suppose it's a matter of context too, as some people are more patient with certain things than others. For this purpose, I'm referring to patience in the most...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    When it comes to doing things for others, when should you let them cross the line? Should you keep trying to be more and more generous and humble? Give everything you've got? This is kind of what we're taught in church and school. That generosity is always good. You could say that generosity is...
  6. Myers Briggs Forum
    Everyone reacts differently to situations where someone has had an accident like spilling something, or bumping into things, or tripping, or pushing too hard on a door so it flies open, or knocking things over, etc. and I would guess there's probably certain reactions more common with certain...

    If you have hope for something you cannot achieve, you will find disappointment in the process. To have that self awareness of when exactly to lessen hope in certain situations, makes you more effective. Hope will still be there, it can never be fully removed, but to lessen it will make you...
  8. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey guys, if you were really interested in someone, but they weren't ready to date yet, would you wait for them? How long? What if you weren't sure of their opinion of you, but you thought they might be interested in the future? Basically, are INTJ's generally patient when it comes to the big...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I find that one of the few things that makes me impatient is the impatience of others. Personally, I'm constantly waiting on others. I feel like I'm always in stand by mode when I'm around people. I wait patiently while they do things, or get things, or finnish things or whatever. I never...

    Sometimes it seems like life is at a standstill. Months or years will go by and I feel like I can barely distinguish between the times. Did I do anything useful between then and now? It seems like my way of marking time consists of major successes or changes in my life. I hate the notion of...

    Tokugawa Ieyasu was famous for his patience. His patience was so great that he persisted at his goal to unite Japan until he achieved it at the age of 60. In the process, he survived all his fearsome rivals by waiting for the right moment to seize power. It is for his great patience and...
