  1. The Shadow Tritype

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I've recently stumbled (more or less) on a Google hangout with Ben Vaserlan and Katherine Fauvre about the tritypes in which she talks about one way to accurately assess someone's tritype. She describes looking at what I've coined the "shadow" or missing tritype essential qualities pertaining...
  2. [INFP] Describe your shadow (as an entity)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey all, I was wondering if any of you ever had an encounter with your shadow, which can be manifested in all kinds of ways. I know, it's slightly off the beaten path of mbti, but it still incorporates Jungian theory. Now, let's start.. "How do you recognize it's your shadow?" You may ask...
  3. [INTP] Falling for your Darker Dopelgänger

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    You have been given an INTP who is into you, but is your darker doppelgänger. What do you do? How do you start/stop?
  4. The Venting Thread for INFJs

  5. How I understand Fi and Fe

    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...
  6. What you're capable of

  7. Shadow functions

    Myers Briggs Forum
    What do you guys think of shadow functions? And them coming out when under stress or in an environment you find difficult or unnatural to be in?
  8. [Enneagram Type 4] State the things you like about your personality!

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Fours tend to over-identify with their shadows making it difficult to see what's good about themselves. I started to realize that everything I said out loud was starting to sound very negative, so I decided that along with daily gratitude journal entry, I would also state one thing that I...
  9. [INFJ] Your ESTP Shadow Side

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Curious to know if any of you INFJs have experiences to share on coming down and into your dual mode, your "inner ESTP." Some like to follow on the idea that ENFP is our shadow but I personally think that when you engage your shadow side, you're not turning inside out, just rotated and turned...
  10. [ENTP] Can't stop being an INTJ around others

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    First off: sorry for the typism earlier. That was really douchey of me. It started around 2 years ago, but only got really severe around last fall, when I got put in a social skills class with a severely autistic kid (all the others weren't autistic either, though). Even though I knew I wasn't...
  11. How To Find Out Your Shadow MBTI Type

    Cognitive Functions
    Ok, so this is the only thing I am not sure when it comes to mbti. :wink: I have heard it many times: "Shadow functions". I know that it is the rest of the functions that you already have. For example, I am an ENTP :crazy: , so my functions go like this: Ne-Ti-Fe-Si. Does that mean that the...
  12. Which SWTOR Class should lead the team in Shadow of Revan for Canon?

    Member Polls
    Go to the final video of each playlist to see them lead the team. Imperial Agent: Bounty Hunter: Sith Inquisitor...
  13. Question about shadow functions

    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...
  14. Shadow Manifestations of The Anima & Animus (For Everyone)

    SP's Temperament Forum- The Creators
    I put this post here:
  15. [INFJ] Are we attracted to those who have our inferior and shadow functions?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    We work mainly with our top 3 functions - for an INFJ it would be Ni, Fe, and Ti. I have a theory that we are attracted to people who have our inferior functions. It seems like it tends to be 4-8 in descending order. So for me, I would be attracted to Se, Ne, Fi, Te, and Si in that order. There...
  16. Describe Your Shadow Function

    Cognitive Functions
    It is quite common thing for people to score high points on the shadow of the dominant function on any test and questionnaire. I heard many (including myself) describe using them from time to time, randomly or even "emulate voluntarily" There are different theories explaining them and majority...
  17. I Am One For Peace.

    In any theory, in the end the fact stays the same. We are a part of the universe, we think and we feel. We exist as universal beings with potential to do more with this existence each day. So whether you continue to believe it was religion or evolution, we are simply separating ourselves from...
  18. [INFJ] did you grow up in a dysfunctional home?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Edit: unsure how to edit the poll, but "I used to, but no longer" = I used to think so, but now I think my past is fine! (trying to gauge if I'm just being a drama queen). Hi! First off, I picked up MBTI during the summer and have been following this forum for a few months. Finally worked up...
  19. What the hell are shadow functions?

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi. I am an ENTJ. Apparently my devilish role is Fe. What the hell does this mean. How can Fe come out when I am stressed. Please help.
  20. [Enneagram Type 4] Enneagram, Shadow Work and the Tarot.

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Well... hmm... How do I explain this... the whole thing happened intuitively... First of all, I must caution, what I am about to say might go very strongly against your sensibilities... But the way it all came out, it feels JUST RIGHT... And a way to learn many things simultaneously... I...
