respect

  1. General Psychology
    There is a saying that we must "put ourselves below others", so as to better respect-understand them, be more patient with them, and attract them to us. It's like how water flows from high places to low places, so if we are below, then others will come to us. However, this does not mean knowing...
  2. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    How do you like people to address you? I am on a first name basis with all my supervisors, even being corrected to a nickname when I called him Mr. Lastname. Some people I teach have tried to give me a nickname [that I have never gone by in my life], and I always shut that down quickly. I...
  3. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    One trait I've noticed I've had since childhood is that people about 15+ years older than me really seem to "like" me or extend trust. This could be in a personal or professional setting, it appears to make no difference. It helped me engender trust at work as my bosses have tended to be older...
  4. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Dear Eights, A very common thing I tend to hear (and see) when it comes to eights is that what they do, achieve, say, etc, often enough can make people proud of this eight, or it makes others intimidated, annoyed, etc, though the 'strength' with which an eight can push things forward can in my...
  5. SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    In a past relationship in high school, I pushed my xSFJ boyfriend to question rules and to attempt to re-negotiate them if they seemed unfair. I just wanted him to talk to his parents more. We regularly had explosive fights, but it wasn't until the end of the relationship that he revealed just...
  6. Intro
    Dear future friends/enemies, Please read this with a monotone tone of voice in mind. I'm a girl, mid 20s and I'm an architect. I’ve been told I’m funny and ‘weird, in a good sense’. Humor is very important in my relationships, I’ve bonded with almost every friend I have through sense of...
  7. General Psychology
    Person means mask, you know that right? The personae is what you wear, it is just a mask, the person(ae) is not what you are. -Where is this person, can you point it out to me? No its just a fiction of the imagination of some. People demand that you treat them not as women or men or...
  8. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi INFJ's, I'm interested in hearing what behaviours/actions would lead you to close the door on someone - what is a deal breaker and/or unbearable to you? In my case, one of them would be someone questioning my integrity or slandering me. I dislike shutting anyone out, but in some cases, my...
  9. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hi All, I am a male ENFJ with relatively strong scores for each attribute. That's all I have discovered about my (MB) personality type, so far. As an ENFJ, I have always wondered what the best, as in, the most theoretically balanced / complimentary personality type is, for an ENFJ to have a...
  10. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    INFJ is the Dog and Integrity, Honesty & Respect are the Bone - Your perspective, pls Hi All! I was trying real hard not to write a novel... as you can see, I failed! I would love it if you would read the whole thing, but if you just can't bring yourself to do it I bolded the point. :proud...
  11. ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    Hey guys! My boyfriend is an ESFJ and I am an INFP. We have been dating for about 5 months, and I'm having some issues with him crossing my boundary lines. We are both christians, and have agreed to not have sex until marriage. So at the beginning of our relationship, we both made separate lists...
  12. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    This thread is a focus on the ISFP/ENFP relationship type, a particularly difficult matching. However there is a key to success in any pairing type; love and understanding gets you through. Any advisory/strategic tips on how one might evade the doom of a supervisor relationship type would be...
  13. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    This relationship type is a particularly difficult matching, however there is a key to success in any pairing type; love and understanding gets you through. I started this thread so other ENFP/ISFP couples might contribute motivational, perhaps even ground-breaking aspects of their experiences...
  14. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Hi everyone, Since I've made very positive and intriguing experiences with bringing things I find challeninging to deal with in everyday life to this community, I have decided to do so with a problem I've been having with my mother. This may turn out to be kind of rambly since I feel quite...
  15. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I just realized something odd. Fours are characterized as manipulating others to pity them when they're under stress. But what I realized is that I absolutely hate it when people pity me. I hate it that they see me as vulnerable or weak or unlucky. But I've often found myself aiming to look...
  16. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    Why is it so wrong to break up over a text message? I can name a few advantages, like the dumpee can have privacy in their moment of distress, and all arguments can be talked over thought out messages... But, why is it wrong? How is it disrespectful?
  17. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    When I was younger, I was really optimistic, open, friendly, and sweet. Now I'm seventeen and, though I'm still all of these things, I'm more guarded than I've ever been. My therapist says it's because of some things I've been through (but I don't want to get into that). Try as I may to get...

I know I'm Fi, but my gosh~!! I don't...

    What are your favorite quotes? Here are some of mine: Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. Lao Tzu When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will...

    QUESTIONNAIRE: Try your BEST to list each MBTI type at least once! You can use a MBTI type more than once You can have more than one type for each answer!
