  1. I'm Baaaaack!!!

    For the 2-3 people who manage to read this, I've recovered from my recent surgery. It took 7 hours, they removed about 2 feet of large intestine and they removed a great deal of infection as well. My lower abdomen looks like a "dot-to-dot" of robotic laparoscopic scars, but at least there's no...
  2. Some of Your Favourite Quotes, by MBTI

    INTP-T "I like people, but I like them in short bursts. I don't like people for extended periods of time. I'm alright with them for a little while, but once you get up past around ...a minute, a minute and a half - I gotta get the f#@k outta there." - George Carlin "No, no, no. I'm not...
  3. Extraverted Thinking/Feeling vs Introverted Thinking/Feeling?

    Cognitive Functions
    It seems like people with Fe in their cognitive stack are more likely to have their moods affected by external sources, such as how other people are behaving, how other people are treating them. Their moods may even be affected by certain parts of the environment that may not have to do with...
  4. Motivating factors: do it for personal happiness vs for fulfilling reasonable goals

    Cognitive Functions
    It seems easy to jump to the conclusion that people who have dom/aux Fi would be more driven to do something because it makes them happy while those who have dom/aux Te would be more driven to doing something because it fulfills reasonable goals. However, this seems like a weak interpretation of...
  5. Extravert forced to be introvert & vice versa?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    What are your experiences when you were an introvert forced to socialize and maybe even thought you were an extravert? Or maybe you're an extravert who doesn't have friends (me) for several reasons and had to learn to be alone? I think the first example is more common in US and Canadian...
  6. Am I really not alone being an INFJ?

    This is my first post here, I'm honestly stuck on what I want to say about the issues bothering me. Its not at all easy to open up and allow others to view my personal words. I first want to say that I am an INFJ, and I've read about my personality type quite alot and I have a clear...
  7. New INTJ here

    Hello everyone! Been lurking for quite some time now and just decided to start participating. I found out I'm an INTJ a little less than a year ago by reading online about introversion, feeling out of place and self discovery. I've learn a lot about myself now and I'm interested on still...
  8. [INFJ] How Comfortable are You with Yourself?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I understand that it is an INFJ habit to often take on the personality of others, but how often do you find yourself actively trying to absorb a personality? and how far is enough? not for empathy reasons... perhaps you just find that it benefits you in other ways? This is open to all...
  9. Personal Astrology Profile - Primal

    Zodiac Calculation Unicorns have the Sun sign of Aquarius, and are born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Horse. Those born under the Primal Zodiac sign of the Unicorn are outgoing, energetic, smart, and unique. That’s the good news. The bad news is that they can also be self-centered...
  10. Personal Astrology Profile - Aquarius Decan 3

    Aquarius decan 3 is ruled by the Moon and Venus. It brings the confrontation of the old with the new, so this is the most revolutionary and edgy decan of Aquarius. The Sun travels through the goat, the foal, the water-bearer, the swan and the male water-snake from approximately February 9 to 18...
  11. Personal Astrology Profile - Part 3

    Ascendant in Libra Your psychological nature is sanguine and communicative or nervous and introverted, depending on who, either Venus or Saturn, is the strongest. Libra is ruled by both Venus, the principle of harmony, extraversion, attractiveness, outgoing and airy in this sign, and by Saturn...
  12. Personal Astrology Profile - Part 2

    Mars in Gemini: Mars is the planet that rules our drive and passions. In the mutable air sign of Gemini, Mars is a little scattered and unfocused. Easily bored, Mars in Gemini natives need a fresh change of pace frequently just to keep energy levels up. It's a somewhat odd thing, really. When...
  13. Personal Astrology Profile - Part 1

    Well I've decided to use blog entries as means of documenting everything I've found on my astrological profile. Sun in Aquarius: One of the standout characteristics of those born under the Sun Sign of Aquarius is their unwillingness to follow the beaten track. With advancement and progress...

  15. [022] Idle

    ... ... ... These days, all I ever want is a silent companion. Someone whose hand I can hold, without me ever needing to say a thing, without them ever needing to say anything. ... ... I know it can never happen like that. I'm so afraid to touch people. It makes sense. One of the things I...
  16. [Enneagram Type 9] Affirmations for Unhealthy Nines to Grow as a Person

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    My type: Relational Nine Learning about my enneagram type has allowed me to see myself and what I need to improve on in ways MBTI has not. For years, I've been an unhealthy 9 and I didn't even realize how paralyzed I was making myself and how I was the cause of many of my problems/complaints...
  17. Help Figuring Out Heart Fix

    What's my Enneagram type?
    So, I feel fairly confident about my primary Enneagram type (Type 7), and my gut fix (Type 1), but the Image Center gives me pause (I have a hard time relating to, or understanding the Image Center types). I have also received the impression that many people on the forum view me as a...
  18. How do you achieve?

    Member Polls
    Basically, what do you consider "achievement" in your life? For me, it is when I create something. Write a story, draw a picture, etc. My friend loves checklists. If it is written on a checklist, and she can mark it off, she feels accomplished. What's yours?
  19. 020

    I always operate in the grey and I've gotten pretty comfortable with it, but for once I want everything to be black and white. Am I a good person? Am I bad? Do I have any value to society? No? Then maybe I can do one nice thing and donate all my organs. Oblivion doesn't sound too bad right now.
  20. [ENFP] ENFP vs INFP?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Heelloo!! So, I've never gotten a clear explanation as to how these two personalities are different! All the blog posts I've read that try compare and contrast the two have been a little confusing for me, so I thought that maybe starting my own thread will be easier in helping me understand...
