  1. Vantage Sensitivity: Why being a Highly Sensitive Person is often a good thing

    General Psychology
    Here's a talk given by Highly Sensitive Person author Elaine Aron: The important thing to understand is: while it's true that Highly Sensitive People suffer more than Less Sensitive People from negative stimuli, from bad environments and experiences, etc., they also benefit more than Less...
  2. How many NTs are Highly Sensitive People?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Elaine Aron, who authored the book "The Highly Sensitive Person", says that about 20% of humans (and other species) have an innate temperament with high levels of "sensory processing sensitivity", a different way of approaching life when compared with the less sensitive. The four main...
  3. [INFJ] Not liking your current job

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey dear community! Tomorrow I will have my first day of working after a 17 day vacation and I am scared for it. I am depressed and anxious (I don't know if that's imprortant for this). The thing is, I work in a very toxic environment there, people put so much pressure on you and treat you to...
  4. Am I an ENFP, INFP or maybe ENFJ...?

    What's my personality type?
    Hi! I'm Cris, and I've introduced myself as an ENFP because that's the main result a have in the test, but, as I said, I was confused about it because I used to have the results of an INFP personality. Even, once of twice, I got ENFJ. The thing is that I'm doubting again about it, because I just...
  5. [INFP] How to put aside emotions and be more productive as an INFP?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello everyone! I realised that what really keeps me from being productive are my emotions. Instead of just doing something I am just sitting around analysing how I am feeling at the moment. And I also often use my emotions as an excuse for my non existant productivity. When I am forced to be...

  7. [INFJ] Sensitivity to touch

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I was wondering if it was fairly common for INFJs to be very sensitive to people touching them. Well, I know it is, but to what degree? More specifically, when someone touches you, do you feel it on your skin even when they're not touching you anymore? If someone gets close to you and then backs...
  8. [INFJ] Seemingly Stoic?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Just a passing thought today while conversing with my roommate: Do you find that not-so-close friends underestimate your sensitivity and/or minimize your struggles? That the public eye/general acquaintances/semi-friends assume you're not struggling as much as you actually are? Is it even an...
  9. [INFJ] Attachment, Personality Disorder, Avoidance, Problems with Intimacy, anyone relate?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So as of the last year or so, after quite a few years of hard work and research that i've put in, I've reached a conclusion that I am suffering from what's called C-PTSD. I certainly have a narcissist (or someone that suffers from narcissism) in my life, and that person is my father (and others...
  10. Is my ENTP best friend being a dick or am I being too sensitive?

    Intro
    Greetings, all. So he and I have been tight for well over a decade now. We get along very well (obviously, otherwise we wouldn't be best friends.) Neither of us take ourselves too seriously so we both have a habit of joking around, making fun of ourselves, sometimes eachother. I don't recall it...
  11. [ESFJ] immature ESFJs not so 'caregiving'

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    I am an ENFP that has 2 really close ESFJ friends, and few other people i just know to be ESFJs and lots of them vary in personality, some i wouldnt even guess to be an ESFJ one of them i would say upholds the general ESFJ description quite thoroughly, especially with the Fe/selflessness that...
  12. [INFP] INFP and Therapy: What's Your Experience

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Whether you are INFP or another type, I need your help and insight. I've just been through my 5th therapy session, and suddenly it went wrong. I am shy, anxious or fearful-avoidant attachment, sensitive (HSP), and have recently been having increased depression, social anxiety, and suicidal...

  14. [ENTP] Maintaining Friendships

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Alright, this post may be out of frustration, but how well do you maintain your friendships? As in, do you actively put forth effort to get together with people or do they come to you? Furthermore, do you enjoy when friends seek you out? And how much is too much? I'm finding that I am getting...
  15. [INFJ] Fellow infjs - do you feel like people treat you differently?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    As an INFJ for my whole life I've felt like others treat me sorta differently to other people. I don't know what the reason for this is ... maybe because I'm quiet and sensitive I don't know .... can anyone here share similar experiences?
  16. [INFJ] An INFJ with a hard shell...

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello everyone, I'm noticing that a lot of INFJ's see themselves as very sensitive, squishy, vulnerable types, but I don't really see myself as that. I do think I am very sensitive, but more in the sense that I pick up on things that may be lost on others; I'm sensitive to emotional energy. I...
  17. [INFJ] I feel what you feel

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    (heads up, apologies for the essay :tongue:) I don't know if this is an INFJ thing, or a different type, or maybe nothing to do with personality types. I feel what you feel Literally (well it feels that way) For me when I witness anything violent, abusive, even humiliation it gets stuck in...

  19. [INFP] Are INFPs sensitive?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Recently I've been wondering whether I'm INFP or ENFP, but even more recently I've been wondering if I'm a Thinker because all of the personality descriptions I've come across for INFPs seem to say that we are sensitive and don't like criticism etc.. However I don't think I'm too sensitive -...
  20. [ENTP] Bad mood insta cure

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    So obviously when people are in a bad mood they are really hard to handle with. But even if I try my hardest to interact nicely with others when I'm in a bad mood it seems like my bluntness shines through more than usually and it feels like every d*mn person is a enemy only out to start an...
