  1. [INTP] Social Praise and Awkwardness

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I just received my final grades for the Spring 2018 Semester. Unsurprisingly, they are all quite well. The typical thing to do is show my family, because they are going to ask anyway. It is hard to feel proud though. I just do the work and the numerical feedback is spit out a few days later. I...
  2. [ESFJ] ESFJ Appreciation Thread

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    I decided to stop by with some coffee :starbucks: and virtual hugs :octopus: because I'm starting an ESFJ appreciation thread to make up for all the hate ESFJs get on PerC. Other types, what do you appreciate about ESFJs? What are your positive experiences with ESFJs? ESFJs, since this thread is...
  3. Praise the Type Above You

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I am sick of the "Criticize the type above you" threads, so I decided to turn the tables. I'll start by complimenting the ESFJs since they seldom receive the praise they deserve: ESFJs, you guys are so kind. I like that about people. Your genuine smiles and kind words are like the stars in the...
  4. [INFP] Praise

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Anybody else feel like they constantly need praise or reassurance in order to feel worthwhile or productive? I try to remain somewhat detached about it, reminding myself that most (not all!) of the time, it's what I think that matters more than what others think. But I internalize the world...
  5. [INFP] ENFP madly in love with INFP (who can't do long distance) - advice?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi INFPs, I could really use your help/advice/pat on the back. Ready for a Nicholas Sparks novel? I (the American ENFP) fall head over heels for a shy musician (the English INFP) on my year abroad in the UK. [[Spontaneous chemistry]] I went too fast for him so we remained friends for eight...
  6. [INTJ] INTJ Self confidence level?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I have massive self confidence and rarely have self esteem or self doubt issues. But looking around the forum plenty of INTJs seem to me to have low self esteem and self confidence... So, at the risk of getting trolled or slated by the ever confident @Bugs, I'd like to know your INTJ views on...
  7. Enneagram Authors Debate: Who's Got It "Right"?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    With the rather recent implementations of Naranjo's "Character And Neurosis" to the Enneagram forum, there has been an increasing debate about the validity and accuracy of each of the different author's interpretation on the Enneagram. For example: while Naranjo's work has been criticized for...
  8. [ESTJ] ESTJs and Praise

    ESTJ Forum - The Guardians
    Okay, this is a spin-off from my other thread, but I am curious in general.... Does praise mean a lot to you? What sort of praise floats your boat? How do you like to receive it? Verbally, little notes or texts, greeting cards, sky-writing? I am an INTJ, when people compliment me, it's nice...
  9. [ISFJ] Giving praise..

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    I love my ISFJ friend, even though I don't always completely understand her. What I'm interested in knowing is how an ISFJ truly reacts when given praise. For some reason my friend brings this out in me. I always want to build her up and say uplifting things to her, and tell her how...
