  4. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have a crush on an INFJ. I would say that he has a rather well developed Fe. He often talks to strangers and I find him always attempting to break the silence when with other people. Being an INTJ, I'm sort of the type of person who makes an attempt to stand near my crushes and not say...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    This Jung quote is really resonating with me recently- “Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself..." I feel like every time I try to hang out with someone around my age (mid-late 20s, even early 30s)...
  6. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    I've just started learning about MBTI types etc. so still a huge noob, but hoping to learn from all you experts. Also hoping to maybe take advantage of your knowledge instead of having to figure it all out by myself. ;) So, I was reading about ISFJs and how they can have trouble making a...

    When someone keeps trying to engage me in small talk and I'm not in the mood to socialise...
  8. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Yes, dinners in plural, as my family tends to have 4-5 gatherings from Christmas to New Years. I wake up Christmas morning very happy indeed every year, but as the Christmas dinner arrives I just stop enjoying myself. There is just so much chit-chat with the extended family, and last year I...
  9. What's my personality type?
    Hey you guys, I'd love a bit of help here. I'm trying to figure out a friend's type with her so we can see if it gives us some insight into how she can cope with some stresses. - A big problem in her life right now is her loosing her faith in humanity. She'll hear or be part of a conversation...
  10. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Look guys, I'm not the only one suffering from dealing with this! Lets put our heads together and come up with something because this isn't working anymore. EDIT: Lets also discuss strategies to seguing into deep conversations. I dont mind putting up with someones lame small talk, if in...
  11. ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    I have recently been speaking to a few of my close friends and realized that after about 15-20 minutes of talking about general things without going to a more interesting topic or exploring some issues to a more deeper extent, I get extremely uninterested. I understand that a conversation should...
  12. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm an INFJ 2w1 - an idealist humanitarian. I've literally traveled the world in the name of charity. Yet for all of my caring about people, I have horrendous people skills. It makes no sense. I'm just really bad at small talk, and it seems that's what most interactions are. I know that there...
  13. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    First, I am quite new to this forum so forgive me if I have made some mistake when making this post. There is a general consensus that INFJs don't like small talk. And I think it is fair to say that most of us don't find small talk the most enjoyable social interaction. Most of my (relatively...
  14. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Ok so when I first got into MBTI and found out I was introverted I instantly labelled myself as only capable of introverted behavior. I think it's important to remember that the I in INFJ means that you have a PREFERENCE for introverted behaviors verses extraverted behaviors. It doesn't mean...
  15. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I am an extrovert! I love meeting new people, going to parties and having a lot friends! BUT a couple of my coworkers have recently described me as shy. I think the real problem is the ENFP dislike of small talk. Just the other day a coworker was telling me about how much she loved her friend's...
