  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Okay INFPs... ...according to the title at the top of this forum, we are supposed to be "Idealists". What is the last "Idealist" thing you can remember doing? My answer:
  2. 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...
  3. What's my Enneagram type?
    Hey guys, i've been typed as 1 since 2016, and it's astonishing that the main type hasn't changed since. But recently, some people here and on discord have suggested ideas such as this one that have caused me to doubt my classification. @Arrogantly Grateful (please offer any insights)...
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This is a technique I baptized as "AlMierdismo", is a word game in Spanish (my mother tonge). In english would be something like "FuckThisShitism", beautiful isnt it? :P To explain you my technique I will tell you my story (how I create it). In my University there is a rule that say "If a...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Which one has been more problematic for you? I read somewhere that INFPs are frustrated by indecisiveness and INFJs by idealism and perfectionism, do you see any difference between them?

    VOI-S or INFJ (My birth mother called me "The Peacemaker" when I was 10-12, and said, "I would inherit the Earth," which may be why I hesitated to share it, and why I considered retaking it.) It's as though she ruined my being at peace with being a Peacemaker. Eh, as Bhante Gunaratana...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi there, I've been wondering a lot lately about this pattern in my life and personality. I don't know if anyone here can also relate but it would be intresting to see if it is common for the INFj personality type. Let me elaborate a little on what I mean- after all many people do idealize other...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Who else worries incessantly about having perfect grades in school? I just got a B+ and an A- for two of this past semester's courses and feel quite sad about it, even though I do have an A+ as well and go to an incredibly difficult institution. I just feel like an A- and a B+ are nowhere near...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Do any other INFPs feel guilty when they go to the doctor or dentist and have some sort of health issue? Like, even if it's not your fault? I went to the dentist this morning and had mild decay in a wisdom tooth and felt like it was a character flaw. :ssad: I'm such a perfectionist.
  10. What's my personality type?
    IEE or not? Hello, members of Personality Cafe. Lately I have been thinking about personality theories and how I fit in them. Up until now I have been pretty much sure I am an IEE/ENFp (at first, because of test results and somewhat credibility of the descriptions, I thought I was SEE/ESFp...
  11. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I've been seeking explanations into the root of my neurotic perfectionism and anxiety recently and after having a particularly difficult time trying to connect with a parent over the Christmas holidays I did a little digging online and came across Jonice Webb and the concept of Childhood...
  12. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I've recently become aware that I'm going down a path of pessimistic thinking. I don't recall always being like this, but it seems I have been for a good year - seeing the glass half empty, being skeptical of people's motives, not finding fulfillment with many people, obsessing over mistakes...
  13. Intro
    Yo. I am new as of today. As an INFP, just as I like to reassure others, I like to be reassured that: "Yes, this will get better." INFP symptoms ...I'm trying to research how to change your type -romantic obsession -intense fear of abandonment -self-sabotage -codependent -emotional anorexia...
  14. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey all, I found this description of how perfectionism works in INFJS (or dominant intuitives, in general), and it seemed to describe me perfectly: My Ni gives me access to astounding possibilities and visions of what could be, and when you combine this with my inferior Se (which is really...
  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Is there anyone here who is, or once was, a perfectionist? I've noticed I exhibit the classic signs of it; failure to enjoy successes due to focusing on the small parts that were incorrect, procrastinating on and on because I know, if I try, I'll make a mistake and thus, I'll get hung up on...
  16. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I think out of all of the Deadliest Sins, my greatest challenge is Sloth with it's parent, Pride, as a close second. More specifically, I think this can also apply to a fair few INFPs out there... of course, there are individual differences, but I'm interested in other people's opinions and...
  17. Myers Briggs Forum
    Sometimes I just want to shake people when they try to tell me that I'm wrong about something, when I know that I'm right, either by intuition or by factual evidence. For me, it's hard to just walk away from a situation like this, and instead I want to spend the time convincing them that I'm...
  18. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I find this is happening to me quite often, before I will write or say something to someone I think alot about what the person(s) might think about me depending on what I write/say. And it happens even after I have said/written something. If the reaction seems bad, I think of a lot of reasons...
