  1. Classic typing thread I guess, don't know what I should write as an interesting title

    What's my Enneagram type?
    1. What drives you in life? What do you look for? Find a sense of all this, understand and explore reality (but fatigue to act in an active exploration in the open world). I look for total understanding. 2. What do you hope to accomplish in your life? To understand the core of reality and leave...
  2. [INFJ] How Much of Mythology and Storytelling is Just Fiction?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've always been drawn to stories, and history. And I've also been interested in the question of how much of what we know as fiction really is fiction. I've heard the idea that "myths are based in truth". I think there is some accuracy to this- but how much, and in what way? What is a...
  3. [ENTP] The Infinite Probability of Things That Could Go Wrong

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Are you always thinking about things that could go wrong, things that are wrong, or any such thing thereof? I am. Is there always going to be something wrong, and is that what we are/would be like in our relationships with other NTs? And I know we will think about everything about it until our...

  5. [INFP] How do I stop feeling melancholic?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    For some odd reason, when I wake up early I feel just sad. Not because I'm tired or anything. It's only if I'm waking up to go do something. For instance, this morning I woke up really early because I had an orthodontist appointment. School starts back in 2-3 weeks, and I know every morning...
  6. [INTJ] How To Succeed As An INTJ Without Really Trying

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Yo I'm an ENTP, as you can probably see. There's a thread elsewhere which talks about the "type hype" around the INTJ type. Second perhaps only to the INFJ, the INTJ is a famously mysterious type when it comes to actually BEING you. It's a well-known stereotype that the INTJ is deep, visionary...

  9. [INFP] are INFPs not needed in this cold, harsh, pragmatic, Money / business oriented world?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have honestly been severely depressed (& even suicidal) for quite some time lately. One of the biggest/main thought I have is how 'alien' INFPs can often feel, living in this 'ESTJ'-ish world/society. My question is: are we INFPs really not needed in this cold, harsh, pragmatic, shallow /...
  10. Depersonalisation and Derealisation - Panic attacks

    General Psychology
    I've started a therapy a while ago because of a lot of personal problems and things from my childhood that are interfering with my life right now. My therapist told me that I have - even though I'm still young enough to possibly recover fully from it - depersonalization and derealization...
  11. [INFJ] What is your definition of success?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    My teacher was discussing the topic on marginalised beings when he pulled in another topic tackling on success. He enunciated the different aspects on how today's generation would define success, like being exposed to wealth, being manipulative and dominant, having tons of gadgets and plenty of...
  12. [INFJ] Finding your own truth - Is this a common INFJ problem?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Lately, I've been questioning EVERYTHING that I think I know to be true. Philosophy, religion and morality; I'm second-guessing all of it. The classic INFJ problem is being able to see from everyone's point of view; well, I'm completely losing sight of my own. I've been listening to Wayne Dyer...
  13. Your Childhood Dream Career vs. Your Career Now

    Education & Career Talk
    Let's compare the similarities and differences! I wanted to be a teacher in kindergarten. Now, i'm only 13, so i don't have a job yet :p but i want to be a social worker/philanthropist/something like that.
  14. [ISFP] How can I start caring again, stop avoiding everything through escapism, and move on?

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I'm a twenty year old ISFP college sophomore student, and I have been struggling with motivation and caring about school since last year, and I don't totally know why. Last year, I was really excited to be auditioning for vocal performance at my school, and I was rejected. Since then, I have...
  15. [ENTP] What does the ideal well-developed ENTP look like? How do we make this a reality?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I desire to become my highest self. I am seeking wisdom on how to go about doing this. What does that look like? How do I approach realizing this idealized self? Should I develop myself to become more balanced? More disciplined? Better at implementation? Should I actually follow through with...
  16. [ENTJ] Escaping reality with thought provoking Movies

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    I enjoy watching movies to help me escape reality and to allow my own thoughts to disengage. List some of your favorite movies with a short sentence on why? (ENTJs comments preferred)
  17. [INFP] Cynical INFPs

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    While many people say that cynics are just defeated idealists, I find that I'm idealistic on the outside but deep down I'm very cynical. This doesn't affect my appreciation for the world around me much but I cannot identify with idealistic world views. As INFPs we're often called idealistic and...
  18. [INTP] principle vs. reality breaking point

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    What sort of principles carry the most weight to you, and at what point will it take for you to forsake them to prevent catastrophe? And what does it take for you to see them? Obviously this is a nuanced topic, because on the extreme end of "rightly" principled, you have the example of Socrates...
  19. Cosmos

    Science and Technology
    This could just as well fit in the philosophy and critical thinking category, but, do you think about how odd this cosmos, it's existence, and therefore our existence as parts of the cosmos, really is in reality? Think about it for a moment. There was either always something with no beginning or...
