  1. [ISTJ] Orwell foresaw cultural relativism and the rejection of the idea of Objectivity

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    1984 foresaw the Collectivist Solipsism of today. After all, "multiculturalists" believe that if enough believe something to be true or moral, then it is true or moral to them. They usually claim as follows: everyone is prejudiced and bigoted in their own way, so why not all get along? And, if...
  2. [INTP] The nature of thought

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So....My personality appears to have fallen into the intp category. as a result of that. I came here with two mind scramblers. The first: the nature of thought. Now empty your mind of the rampaging thoughts and just consider what is written here. Consider that a machine was invented. It...
  3. [ISTJ] Stoicism

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    The philosophy of stoicism is most interesting. After all, it is the perfect one for those in the military, and perhaps law enforcement. After all, it is all about preparing for trouble, and not letting one's enemies have the pleasure of seeing one cry. I wonder, have any of the rest of you...
  4. If every type was a philosophy...what would it be?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I'd love to see people take this philosophy test and then post their results, see how consistent they are! I'd imagine INFJs like me would get very idealist, probably Platonist. Then you get S types which I imagine would be less likely to get strong philosophies, perhaps more...
  5. A Young Romantic - INFP

    Intro
    How can I express the amount of hopelessness that permeates around me? Every day, I have to watch and listen to people needlessly suffering from things that have little to no lasting value. Perhaps it is presumptuous of me to project my values upon others, but it has become increasingly...
  6. MBTI types and philosophers measured with Dichotomy Tests

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hey guys! I've always found the similarity with MBTI types and certain philosophies or philosophers to be one of the most fun parts of al this! Like like INFJ Plato is or how ISTP Diogenes was. Or even my controversial view that Nietzsche was not INTJ and actually INFP, his inner feeling really...
  7. [ENFP] Speculation: How Would You Act In War?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    This is inspired by reading the big MBTI book "Please Understand Me". David Kearsy speaks of not having encountered NFs in his World War II experience. But NFs had to be in the war, just like everyone else. It got me thinking...If you're a fellow ENFP and got drafted, how would you respond...
  8. Existential Dread and Depression

    General Psychology
    First post, not sure if I'm in the right category for this discussion, but here goes. I'm existentially depressed. My family thinks it's just a phase, or that I'm not "actually" depressed, just an existentialist. I'm 25 and finishing my first degree in nursing. I've tried, and succeeded, at...
  9. [INFJ] The philosophy subject of the INFJ's and INFP's

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So what are they focusing when they philosophizing? In what direction do they go in Philosophy? The answers of these two type are similar to this? Or different? If its different then how do they differ?
  10. Are most vegans INFPs?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Do you think that this personality type would generally be drawn to the philosophy of veganism? I saw an interesting comment under a youtube video about the INFP personality type that said in a Facebook poll made for a vegan community they realised that most participants in the poll had the...

  12. Hi all. I'm an 18yo Aussie INTJ and I'd like to meet some nice ENTPs and ENFPs

    Intro
    I just turned 18 last month and I'm from Australia. I really like ENTPs and ENFPs for their dominant Ne function since they compliment the vigour of the inquiries that my Ni and Ti set me on well. I've also found that I get along with INFJs and INFPs quite well. My interests are philosophy...
  13. [Enneagram Type 4] Video: Imagining Your Life but Not LIVING It! {Enneagram Type 4}

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    You could spend your life imagining all of your life goals but not actually manifesting them! Well someday you must actually begin! A new movement is starting --- it is called Kellerinianism (aka: Bacon Spirituality)! youtube.com/KellerinaBacon It is a societal, political, spiritual, and...
  14. Life is Cringe (Confessions from my Enneagram 4)

    Blog
    I'm not writing this for anyone except myself. Why am I making that statement? I'm reminding myself of plenty of cringy, semi-cringy, quasi-cringy blogs I've come across in the past, but that's okay. Whatever. I'm choosing to be like that on here, because I can, and it's a different thing from...
  15. "Love Yourself." What on earth does this mean and how does one do it?

    General Psychology
    *Please read my ideas before sharing yours* We hear it all the time: "You need to love yourself first before you can love others/others can love you" I have my own personal view on it: which is, that how much you "love" yourself does not even correlate to other's ability to love you, or your...
  16. [INTJ] Deepest Thought/Idea

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    What is the deepest thought or idea you've ever had about anything (philosophy, art, culture, psychology, politics, science, etc)? Something that maybe not many people have thought about or something that takes some time to really think about. I sometimes think about how interesting it is that...
  17. [INFJ] April 19th: Bicycle Day. My Experience and Lessons from LSD

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Don’t practice drugs or contemplate obtaining them. They are dangerous. It was April 19th yesterday but I didn't have time to write this. I figured I'd share an entertaining story with you guys. The part that is frustrating is that with such a substance the experience cannot be described...
  18. MBTI stereotypes - analogies and associations

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I created a compilation of stereotypical MBTI analogies and associations. Do you want to add something? ESTP Names: Entrepreneur, Doer, Promoter, Negotiator, Persuader, energetic Doer Color: Red Gemstone: Ruby Zodiac: Aries (with Sagittarius influence) Enneagram: 378 (Mover-Shaker); 137...
  19. [INTJ] [Philosophy] Te and Empiricism

    Does Te have anything to do with the philosophical concept of empiricism? Is Ti, being opposed to Te, rationalism?
