  1. [INFJ] How Will an INFJ Act in a Platonic Relationship

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi! I'm just curious how INFJs act in relationships you desire to remain platonic vs. how you act in relationships you desire to develop romantically. Also, are you willing to consider someone whom you've known for a long time, but maybe because of extenuating circumstances never gave a true...
  2. [ISTP] The more you care, the more they withdraw?

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    People, Help me here. Is it an ISTP thing or may be it is one individual in a particular circumstance. I am trying to find out which one; and if it is a generic thing common to many in the type, it may help to know why and how to respond to it. If a female does caring actions, does it cause...
  3. [INTJ] An INTJ trying to control his deepest platonic feelings

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Through my life I have always sought to free myself from the chains that bound me. From adolescents I felt the need to separate fact from fiction in my daily life in order to bring some sort of order to the chaos that was my heart. I have been through many crushes in my life now. With each one...
  4. [INFP] He came out to me as bisexual, and now avoiding me?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I am an INFP female, who has had a mostly platonic friendship with an IN*P male for several years. We spent many months going on quasi-dates, and nothing really ever came of it, but we became close friends in the process. He recently got back in touch, and told me about a casual girlfriend he...
  5. [Enneagram Type 5] How do enneagram 5s feel about 4s?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Looooong time reader of this forum, first time poster. How do enneagram 5s feel about 4s? I'm very curious as I seem to be attracted (platonically and romantically) to 5s, but of course because they tend to be rather private, I don't hear much of them spouting opinions on 4s. I love all my...
  6. [ISTJ] ISTJ and INFJ friendships

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    ISTJ and INFP friendships Just my two cents but one of my close friends is an INFP and I'm a ISTJ. It is true, we argue about pretty much everything under the sun. One time, we went out with an ENFJ and a IxxJ friend and they literally sat around my INFP friend and I, watching us have a...
  7. [INTJ] [INTJ] What is love?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I don’t believe in love; the definitions tend to be very vague and inaccurate and there are several types of love. Love is a very abstract and intangible concept to grasp. What is this love that humans speak of? You can go to any dictionary or encyclopedia to look up a definition, but what is it...
  8. [INTJ] [INTJ] What types relationships do INTJs prefer? (Long-Term, Short-Term, One-Night)

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    What types relationships do other INTJs prefer? Do you prefer interacting with others in long-term, short-term, one-night stands, pure platonic friendships, non-platonic friendships, or something else? I prefer the term "one-life stand" for myself. I have no interest in short-term...
  9. [ENFP] ENFP Friend Wants Back Into My LIfe. Should I Let Him?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    So I had this friend I met at my community college, and we just clicked. He is an ENFP. We were cool, until he said he had acquired feelings for me. I didn't share those, but we talked it out and stayed friends. Then when my life turned upside down, he was there for me....until (while I was...

  11. [INFJ] Insight for an INTJ (Anonymous Love Letters)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Dear INFJ :tongue:, I have a situation that I would like to have your input on. Short version: How do you feel about receiving anonymous love letters? (From a hopeless INTJ coward seeking a STRICTLY PLATONIC relationship) Long version: There is a girl whom I suspect is an INFJ. We were...
  12. [INTP] Maintaining Relationships

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    How do you nurture and maintain relationships, or can you? I find that I am terrible at maintaining friends because after I have spent quite a bit of time with someone I notice these small flaws in there personality. Then once I articulate the flaw to myself, I begin to constantly notice this...
