  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi! I think... Or I know, that I have serious problem. Today was my first PE lesson at university. I hate it already (I'm studing history and I want to leave studies and change it for geography or art) so I was pretty sad. I didn't eat anything for 2 days and I was pretty sad when I found my...
  2. Intro
    Hello all, I'm Andante and I am new here. :) I have read threads on here before, but never posted. Introductions are not my forte; I am an extremely introverted INFP and usually humour my inner recluse, but I am curious about others, and even I can't live in my own internal world all of the...
  3. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I constantly hear and read about the "ultimate pairing" of the ENTP with the INFJ personalities. I must admit, the friends of mine who are ENTPs are the ones with which I get along most effortlessly. However, I have never explicitly asked them what their opinions are in INFJs and why they may...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Shyness. How do you overcome it? So I'm going to college in BYU-Hawaii and I have no close friends. I've always admired Japanese culture and I wanted to get into the Japanese club this year but, it's been hard. I feel awkward if I even get near a gathering of people I don't know, especially...
  7. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    This is odd to come out with, but I realized I've always had a level of self-consciousness in regards to doing something in the spotlight that: -I'm not yet good at -Displays emotion -Is something that my close relatives have not seen as a part of me. That last point is important, because I...
  8. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    This is odd to come out with, but I realized I've always had a level of self-consciousness in regards to doing something in the spotlight that: -I'm not yet good at -Displays emotion -Is something that my close relatives have not seen as a part of me. That last point is important, because I...
  9. Sex and Relationships
    Hello! I feel a little weird talking about this, because i feel i'm a little too old (23) to be asking this kind of questions, but this subject is really important to me right now. So, my question is: should i friend request this guys to whom i have talked in real life a couple of time? I know...
  10. ISFP Forum - The Artists
    So I've been kinda seeing this ISFP girl for 3-ish weeks, and I'm having a hard time gauging how she feels about me. She's only been single for a month and a half, got out of a multi-year relationship. I don't think she intended on things to move as rapidly as they did with me, and I've got a...
  11. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So I sit next to this girl in one of my classes. I'm pretty sure she's an INFP...I'll say hey to her and all that stuff but she's so shy that she looks at the floor and answers. When I am trying to make conversation with her she's normally zoned out and I only get "ohhhh" or "Yeah" from her and...
  12. General Psychology
    So I've been looking for a roommate and there have been a few people coming over individually to inspect my apartment. I took the opportunity to get try to get to know the potential tenants to see if I'd be compatible living with them, but I've come across a problem I'm not sure how to deal...
  13. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    This was brought up in one of my other threads. I was wondering what everyone's opinion is on this. Do you think as INFJs (especially some of us guys), we are more prone to social anxiety, shyness, and even worse, love shyness?
  14. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    i'm a 4w5, INfP. i consider myself socially handicapped quite often. it's most comfortable to be quietly sitting in a corner in a get-together or a party. often, to get talking to people can be difficult and i feel i come across as serious and reserved, and perhaps quite blank and emotionless...
  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey there! Just wondering about your experiences with public speaking, as I have a huge activity of this kind in a couple of weeks and I have no idea whether I'll do well or not( 15 minutes talk). I've given speeches before, but they were pretty short and with a familiar audience. Needless to...
  16. Sex and Relationships
    I can never make up my mind about what girl I like/to date. As a result, I either come off as creepy (which I try not to be) or a doormat (the result of being a "nice" guy). These usually happen in cycles. There comes a girl that I have so much in common with that I feel we MUST talk to each...
  17. General Psychology
    I'm going to college in January and I want to open myself up in order to meet new people. Throughout high school I was extremely introverted and I was comfortable being that way. In my last year of high school I tried to open myself up and I was shot down by many people. Right now I often find...
  18. What's my personality type?
    For the longest time I was so sure I was INTP. After learning more about cognitive functions, I don't know why I ever thought I was one. I'm fairly certain that I'm Ni dominant because I'm always comparing concepts in my head and thinking of different ways I could go about doing something...
  19. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    When I like a girl... my charisma and confidence and flirtiness and fun-loving personality is always a winner. But then as soon as I know she likes me back... I COMPLETELY SHIFT into this extremely reserved, very romantic and affectionate, humble, and shy person. Any kind of flirting that was...
