  1. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    You may be asking... am I an INFJ? You may have taken lots of MBTI tests but you're still not quite sure. This was my experience, and it turns out that I was mistyped. In this video, I use Four Sides Of The Mind theory to explain why you may actually be an ENFP. Enjoy the video...
  2. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    You may be asking... am I an INFJ... OR could I possibly be an ENFP? You may have taken lots of MBTI tests but you're still not quite sure. This was my experience, and it turns out that I was mistyped. In this video, I use Four Sides Of The Mind theory to explain why you may actually be an ENFP...
  3. Cognitive Functions
    I should clarify that I'm not a typical ISTP: 1. my Se is relatively underdeveloped because in the past I've been primarily using Ni to (avoid really) navigate the world; 2. I've identified with a string of types before in the following order: INTP, INTJ, INFJ, ISFP, ISTP, ENTP, ENFP, INFP...
  4. Myers Briggs Forum
    Hey guys, I'm new to the site. I've read several articles before and thought about contributing a few times but never bothered to sign up until I got massively frustrated by this issue I'm having. Essentially, whenever I'm typed by any MBTI test (I've taken several), every one of my traits...
  5. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hey so this is my 2nd post on this website, just want to say I love this website a lot XD. OK so I'm just gonna get right into it. I have definitely been in an Fi-Si loop, which some is possible but some say its not, but I did find a website that said its possible and I totally related to it: I...
  6. Cognitive Functions
    Fi-users are very selective about who they will let transform them. (limited use of Fe) Fe-users lets themselves be transformed by the (perceived to be) majority. (limited use of Fi) Fi-users are much more selective/careful about allowing themselves to be affected by someone. (limited use of...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    What are you like when you're unhealthy? How do you see your shadow functions manifesting when stressed/unhealthy? Do you believe in Ni-Ti loop, and if yes, how does it manifest in terms of behaviour?
  8. What's my personality type?
    [View profile for in depth personal information, and gallery for visual aid!] I have been testing between ENTJ/INTJ and ISFP for a while now, and I am curious if anyone could help me sort out which one seems to fit best. Also, feel free to discuss your own take on the differences between the...
  9. Blog
    I never chose friends by personality type, say, on the other personality forum I belonged to for many years, yet when I looked at my list to tally by type (when this kind of thread came up), out of 240 friends, I had few extraverted friends; few ISTJs, few INFPs. Most were INTJ and INTP. Of...
  10. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    WARNING: Extremely long post, so read on your own risk :violin: After a long time away from the forum and MBTI as a whole I ended up turning to it in my search for answers pertaining to the big inconsistencies I found in my external behaviour versus my actual internal feelings and desires. In...
  11. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hey everyone! I am Octopus1 and I am an ENTP-A. Like any extrovert, I like talking and prefer to answer questions, than to make them! And... Like any MBTI with a tendeny to Narcissistic Personality Disorder, my favorite topic is talking about myself! So go ahead and ask me ANYTHING you...

  13. Cognitive Functions
    Okay- someone please clear it up for me- what are Shadow Functions truly? Some resources have defined them as the unhealthy expression of a type's inferior functions, for example, an INFP behaving like an unhealthy ESTJ when under stress; the traits/behaviors of others (who are very different...
  14. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    My classmate (erm, sort of an aquaintance) and I both tested as INFP, but we are polar opposites. I'm wondering how this is possible if our function stacks are exactly the same. I'll describe each of us and let you guys decide. I have been questioning my type a lot; maybe I'm really something...
  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Okay, for those who don't have any idea what a tulpa is, here's a brief explanation (But you can always google for more, and the I.F. concept is wrong) /watch?v=gSeRVt2ejzQ Now that I got your attention, I have a little question: is it possible that a tulpa is a manifestation of your shadow...
  16. Cognitive Functions
    I don't know if another thread's already been started about this (it probably has and in that case I'm sorry for creating another one) but I need a bit of clarification on the shadow functions. As I understand them, they are the functions not present in your first four functions/the main...
  17. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hi guys. In these days I've tried to understand something about INTJs shadow functions but I still have some doubts. They emerge only when the person is under stress? And they appear all together or it could be possible for one function to emerge without the others (for example only Si)?
  18. Cognitive Functions
    I'm an ENFP and i took the cognitive quiz by our forum. The results are the following: (I cannot post images yet) Ne: 12.92 Fe: 11.38 Fi: 10.31 Se: 7.25 Ni: 7.235 Ti: 2.76 Si: 2.54 Te: 0.24 The cognitive functions are, in order of development:Ne -> Fe -> Fi -> Se -> Ni -> Ti -> Si -> Te It...
  19. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I think I am going into a Ti Si loop again. :crying: I really need to work on my Ne. I was looking up some info on loops and came across shadow functions. I forgot a bit about them and am confused now. Here are my questions: 1. I saw some places say that INTP's shadow is the ESFJ and others...
  20. Myers Briggs Forum
    I am kind of confused about the role of shadow functions in our personality. As an INFJ my shadow functions are Ne, Fi, Te, and Si, which are the same as the main functions of ENFP (in the same order) but also of INFP (not sure of which other types). But I read that under stress an INFJ...
