selfishness

  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Yeah I'm pretty selfish. So is everyone else in their own way. Humans are selfish creatures. But yeah I was being particularly selfish. But do I regret my actions? We will simply have to see in the future because I see the different perspectives. I like to think this scenario is sort of a Fi vs...
  2. Intro
    I have scoured the Internet looking for other INFJ's who are the sole caregiver of their mother/father. I can't find one thing. I'd like to hear from other INFJ's in this predicament and how to deal with it. I am very upset, angry and get guilty at the same time.
  3. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I recently completed my second book and despite my best efforts I could not help but make the main character reflect myself. It was a frustration that I could not separate myself from my work. I hope it's not a detriment to the story. For other ENFPs here that write: 1.) Do you find yourself...
  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    My counselor tells me that I need to be more selfish and in turn manipulative in relationships overall. This is due to my approach of taking other people's needs and concerns and giving them more precedent and care than my own. I reflect, think through, and make decisions entirely on the...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So on Friday I was with a group of people from college and they somehow got on the topic of children and how we planned to raise them. Eventually the topic had involved me, and everyone began to ask me what I planned to do with my kids and whatnot. So I basically told them I don't want to have...
  6. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I really, really, really hate it when I feel selfish. I just feel so disgusted with myself and my sin. (This sentence, more to do with my faith here.) And then I find myself sinking in despair because my thoughts keep going round in circles about my selfishness and it seems more and more...

    Do you ever really analyze yourself deeply and try to figure out 'why' you do or say the things you do? I think each of us would like to believe all of our positive actions are fully genuine. But I don't believe they always are. When you say "sorry" to someone... do you say it and really...
  8. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hey, I think I've decided I'm a 6. I'm curious, in hindsight, does your paranoia lead you to make everything about you sometimes? Without realizing that exactly, but at the same time, you can tell that in your head you are thinking about things too much from your own perspective and according...
  9. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Reading up on ENFJ, I always seem to come across a line that goes a little something like this: ENFJ's motives are usually unselfish, but ENFJs who have developed less than ideally have been known to use their power over people to manipulate them. I can't think of a time when I have...
  10. 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...
