    What's my personality type?
    When I was younger I always seemed to type as an ENFP, and I did not really agree with that because I don`t like being around people much and seem to need a huge amount of alone time. I now keep testing as an INFJ or INFP. So....here is some background on my question. I have severe, chronic...
  2. [ENFP] Other ENFP's with PTSD/Trauma

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hey guy's . I was wondering how other ENFP's hand life after having been subjected to traumatic experiences. I have PTSD due to emotional, physical, sexual abuse. I know my brain really likes to go down the rabbit hole of getting lost in my own head, having extreme disassociation (in emotions...

  12. Mistyping, Dysfunctional Upbringing, Gender & More: Written Dec 2016

    Blog
    Went back to MBTI type I got on tests for 7 years straight, plus most every so-called legit test I've taken since, and my husband's opinion (28 years isn't fluff), plus gut and experience with myself. Kicker, and so obvious? I didn't start taking a bazillion OKCupid-quality MBTI...
  13. Taboo

    General Psychology
    This is something that people don't want me to say, it's meant to be behind my back. Do you agree with these people that this is something I shouldn't let the world know? I don't like saying this, but having been falsely accused of being a Pedophile since 2005 and 2011 especially, and the...
  14. [INTP] I wonder if INTPs are just intelligent people with Complex PTSD. lol

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I've been thinking about this for a couple of months now. I have Complex PTSD and it seems like a lot of the symptoms of C-PTSD correlate with an INTP's personality. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complex_post-traumatic_stress_disorder Just a random thought. Tell me what you think.
  15. Traumatic Nightmares

    General Psychology
    What do you think about nightmares? Are they just bad dreams or an indication of trauma? What if the person doesn't know or doesn't think they've been abused or harmed? I ask this because I, periodically, have very upsetting dreams that affect the rest of my day. It usually involves a...

  18. [INFP] Advice for an INFP when dealing with someone's anger.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Im not sure if it's my personality to blame or some other contributing factor but I have very low self esteem and 0% confidence. So when I married an ESTJ it's unsurprising that I have never won an argument and am unable to stand up for myself. That was before he was gone for two years overseas...
  19. Can PTSD change your personality type?

    What's my personality type?
    I took the Meyers-Briggs in high school and was a strong INTJ. I served in the military for 5 years, was married, and went trough some pretty rough times, last year I was diagnosed with PTSD. Now when I take online personality tests, they tend to label me INTP. I still identify more with the...
