self-esteem

  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    I can not explain in words just how depressing it is constantly seeing people hating themselves for who they are not rather than loving and embracing who they are and CAN BE. With that being said, reminding us of who we are is an incredibly simple way of gaining a little self-esteem. And most of...
  2. Advice Center
    I'm sick of having crushes. They always hurt me. They never like me back, no matter how much I try. I work really hard, but it never happens to me, and it always happens to everyone else. They don't even try. I'm starting to become frustrated. They always end up finding someone "better" than me...

  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey all, so here's the story (There's a condensed summary at the end || read the bold as well): I'm an INFJ who's come to have a lot of emotional stress centered around my relationships, particularly friendships and romantic interests. I've had a lot of high points and low points related to...
  5. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I got this little nugget from Tumblr. This is what you do: take the linked personality quizzes and replace my answers with yours in your post. It's very interesting to see the trends emerge. I'll start. Name: CandyStarlight MBTI: ENTP Enneagram: 3w4 (...5w4 8w7 so/sx; this stuff is extra)...
  6. Advice Center
    This is long, so please bear with me. You may remember me from this post. Story continues here. After months of slow back-and-forth emailing, and a lunch date that went nowhere, I'd finally managed to get a few good convos going with him on Google Chat. I discovered we both liked Talking...
  7. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey guys. Well, I'm coming to the trusty land of the amazing Robotic Masterminds again! I need your advice on yet another matter. I've just been incredibly depressed for about a year now, and counseling is helping a lot, but you guys always seem so confident. So I thought maybe you could help...
  8. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I was curious if anyone else can relate to this and how it relates to type: I prefer my own company to interacting with others because when I am alone, my moods, self-esteem and sense of self stay the same - which is what I feel the most comfortable with. However, since I am extremely thin...
  9. Advice Center
    Hello everyone! I'm kind of new to posting on forums and stuff like that so bare with me. I've kind of had a lot on my mind as of late that I just need help making sense of. Rarely do I ever offer much in the way of self-expression a lot of the time since I've always been extremely introverted...
  10. Blog
    Hi guys, Thank you so much for taking the time to read this :) I am currently working on a school project on whether there is a link between an individuals Myers Briggs personality type and their level of self esteem. I was just wondering if you guys could maybe take the time to participate...
  11. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    "By basing their identities on ever-changing moods, Fours lack a sense of a solid inner "core" to themselves, and so feel that they cannot count on themselves. Their identity and self-esteem are always shaky. Notice this tendency in yourself today." (The Power of the Enneagram audio tapes)...

  13. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers

I have a lot of friends who are introverted...and, although they like me, if you ask them what they don't like, they...

  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I know it's common for INFJs to feel out of place and misunderstood, but for the past few months I've had an extremely low self-esteem (I've never been 100% happy with myself anyway). Around two months ago I started cutting my thighs but then realised what I was doing was wrong and I only hated...
  16. ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    I'm concerned about a good friend of mine who is an ESFJ male. He suppresses his feelings because he is ashamed of and because he thinks it makes him "feminine". I think a lot of it has to do with his father, brother, and mother all being thinkers and kind of looking down on him for it. But what...
  17. General Psychology
    do you think when someone has anxiety it just means that they're thinking too much about themself? or that they are just too self critical for whatever reason... If in the past they may not have had good social skills, causing bad experiences that made them hesitant in social situations...
  18. Advice Center
    I wish I never liked people. Every time I do, I'm let down or proven wrong. Don't get me wrong, I do have friends, but that's only after..like 4 years or so that I trust them that much. I wish I never liked or cared for anyone. Fine, friendship is a mutually beneficial relationship so it's not...
