  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    It's often mentioned in descriptions of the different MBTI types or of their use of their cognitive functions that they all prioritize different aspects of reality. For example, I'm an ENFP and place a pretty high priority on being able to experience new things (ideas, experiences...
  2. Cognitive Functions
    Dear Readers, This is a long story of mine and I request you to read it thoroughly and help me regain myself. Brief introduction: I am actually torn between what I actually desired & couldn't follow and what I am currently doing and cannot cope up with though it is essential & obvious. I am...
  3. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Yo I'm an ENTP, as you can probably see. There's a thread elsewhere which talks about the "type hype" around the INTJ type. Second perhaps only to the INFJ, the INTJ is a famously mysterious type when it comes to actually BEING you. It's a well-known stereotype that the INTJ is deep, visionary...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey all, so here's the story (There's a condensed summary at the end || read the bold as well): I'm an INFJ who's come to have a lot of emotional stress centered around my relationships, particularly friendships and romantic interests. I've had a lot of high points and low points related to...
  5. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    So today I had been looking forward to seeing my ENFP closest friend for the first time in months (b/c of school pretty much), partially excited to see what he's learned and being able to share some of my discoveries as well. Generally when we see each other it's usually exciting and I feel like...
  6. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    So, I'm an ISTJ and this is my first year teaching elementary school... third grade. There are so many things going for me at this school... I have a small class, only teach three subjects (twice a day), and though I have some trouble kids, it's a small portion of the class. The faculty is...

    This may sound crazy, but watching a behind the scenes bit about making sound effects for some movie caused a bit of a revelation for me - there are a lot of 'sound effects' in real life that I have always been completely oblivious to (it was a while back but I don't think I've asked this...
  8. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Lucky for us, we ENTPs are blessed with many unique gifts and superpowers! Wisdom, humor, suaveness, insight, arrogance, an uncanny ability to predict the future, a devil-may-care attitude, and the ability to annoy, excite, alienate, or attract others at whim ... plus many more! How has...
  9. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    There seems to be a huge difference between how my friends see me and how I see myself. For example, my friends are all certain that I would panic if we were stuck in an elevator, when I'm certain that I wouldn't. And they all seem to think I'm this really silly person who is a total joker but...
  10. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I'm ENTP, 100% sure, so no answers contemplating if I might not be an ENTP, anyway, one thing that always happens to me is ''behaving like an ENTJ'', it may be factual wrong what I'm about to say, so sorry, but just try to grasp the concept. I consider myself laid back but sometimes I get really...
  11. Myers Briggs Forum
    First, let’s forget that MBTI has profiles. Second, expect to see slight alterations to the common model. 1. Concrete Perception – Sensory vs Abstract Perception – Intuitive To understand the difference between concrete perception and abstract perception, you have to imagine that we...

    It is often said that most people can view themselves as either a scholar, a warrior, or both. While the concept of a "scholarly warrior" is praised in some cultures while mocked in others, this poll is more about personal perception than cultural beliefs. Which of these three types do you see...
  13. Cognitive Functions
    Lately I've been looking into the perception functions and how they work. I've decided to write about them to see if my understanding is correct. I'd really appreciator any feedback, especially on areas I may have come to the wrong understanding. Thanks :) Perception Functions External...

    I wrote this a few years back when I was going through a custody "battle" with my ex and his new wife. They challenged the original agreed upon joint custody by petitioning the court to grant them primary custody of my four children. During that time in my life I struggled with their inability...
  15. Myers Briggs Forum
    Can you relate to this? Is it maybe possibly an S thing? Or is this a dumb question? For example, as a kid it always seemed like if I did a chore when my mother was present observing me it 'counted' more towards her favorable impression of me being responsible than if I just quietly did it...

    "Go mop up your room after lunch." First reaction, incredibly incensed, because I don't like people telling me what to do with such an... ordered tone. Then, I realise that my mother can't do as much housework as usual, so she's asking me to do it, but because she's ISFJ, that's her way of...

    What is our function stack?

    I'm wondering what the different perceptions of beauty are according to type. ...Well, that was a lot more straightforward than I usually am. I'll elaborate. Basically, I'm wondering what each type thinks about beauty in terms of "beauty versus utility", "the nature of beauty", "what you find...
  19. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    In many INFJ descriptions, it says we can sometimes be seen as "mystical". Has anyone ever described you on something along the lines of "mystical"?
  20. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm really curious about the development of self-esteem and what influences it during childhood development. During my lifetime, I've met people who are very attractive but have low-self esteem because of certain experiences. Yet I've also met others who are nothing special in the looks...
