shy

  1. Sex and Relationships
    Ok, first off, I really wouldn't describe myself as shy, but I am introverted and I do have a 5 wing, so being outgoing and talking to strangers just doesn't feel good like 90% of the time. I know how to flirt with guys and I feel like I'm rather good at it. But like, what do you do when the...
  2. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hi, I’m looking for some advice on career options and possibly life generally. I’m a male ISFJ in my mid-20s, living in South West England. I currently work as a Software Developer. I feel like this is a badly suited career option for me, because I am unable to embrace my feelings and I am...
  3. Hi

    Intro
    It took me a long time to just say hi ....so..... HI everybody :blushed:
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, I made up this term to describe something that happens to me and that I hate very much. Maybe it happens to you too. So, introverts are seen as "shy", perhaps, because we don't initiate social things as much. And extraverts aren't shy because they are more out there and social. Paradoxical...
  5. Intro
    Hello hello! My life is a mess right now, and a friend of mine recommended checking out a personality-related forum, because it helped her when she was trying to figure herself out. So I came here, looked at some random INFJ posts and was surprised to find that I suddenly felt a lot better. I...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm nearly 23 and as long as I can remember I've had problems with physical intimacy and expressing emotions through physical contact. I don't just mean in a sexual or romantic way I've even been uncomfortable with friendly hugs or if someone sits or stands too close to me :D It's kind of...
  7. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Sorry if there's already an other thread about this but I haven't been successful finding one with the search option. I'd like to hear from people who dated other INTJs as an INTJ to see how the early stages of dating were for you. Thing is, I just got out of a date with an awfully shy girl...
  8. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've had a crush on INFP guys a couple of times and they happened to be really shy and passive. All they did was sending really subtle hints, subtle to the point I didn't even know if they actually were hints or if I was projecting my desires in what was only friendship. All I can tell is that...
  9. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    There is a guy at school who I really care about. I have fun being around him and he makes me feel good. I have this feeling he is an ENTP, which seems like an unlikely type for an INFP to crush on, but yeah. The only thing is, he's playful so our conversations always contain a lot of teasing...
  10. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    I'm an INFP. I am new to this site so I'm not sure if i'm posting in the correct forum so forgive me if I'm not. Anyway I have a crush on an ENFJ and had a few questions to ask the ENFJs on this site. (I am not close to the ENFJ. I guess you can call us acquaintances) How do you know if an ENFJ...
  11. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Maybe its just a 'me' thing but I was wondering if any other INFJ's have the same reactions? I get really overwhelmed being around strong E types. Not just in person but online as well, if I feel like someone is trying really hard to get my attention or overly eager to talk to me and sending me...
  12. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So these past few years, I've been working on being as authentic as I possibly can be. I don't like to fake emotion that isn't there for people and stuff like that. I've been wanting to change to be more open and stuff so I can make more friends or just talk more to the friends I already have...
  13. 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. General Psychology
    Whether you are INFP or another type, I need your help and insight. I've just been through my 5th therapy session, and it's suddenly gone all wrong. I am shy, anxious or fearful-avoidant attachment, sensitive (HSP), and have recently been having increased depression, social anxiety, and...
  15. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hey guys! I'm an ENTP and I'm generally social and outgoing with everyone. However there are times where I have my shy moments and it's frustrating me to death. I'm almost certain that my shy/quiet moments stems from my overabundance of anxiety. A lot of times I like to plan out what to say and...
  16. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    What brought u joybeams & peace as a kid? When last have feeling as an adult? How? You know that peaceful, joyous feeling of childhood play? Lack of inhibitions. Freedom. Excepting those in child-slavery and similarly severe circumstances, even those with the crappiest backgrounds had at...
  17. Sex and Relationships
    If during a relatively short phone conversation between two new acquaintances, a man clears his throat several times (but when asked laughs and says no, he does not have a cold or sinus issue :) does this infer any mind/body connection? Nervousness, desire or anything else, in your male...
  18. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I'm not talking about not being heard in the sense that I'm suffering internally but nobody cares enough to notice. I mean that when I say something to somebody, I have to repeat it 4 - 5 times for them to even notice that I was speaking, much less catch what I'd been trying to say. Being a...
  19. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello guys, I am making this thread because I simply too shy to do stuff I wish I could but I hold back from . For example some of these things would include entering a relationship ( wethever frinedly or romantic) . I simply dont have the confidence in myself to do any of these things and I...
