social awkwardness

  1. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Am I being easily offended, or would anyone else find this irksome: A somewhat casual acquaintance who might have been trying to date you replies to your text an entire MONTH later. On a Friday. Not even following up on anything from the previous text. I'm thinking, desperation Friday text and...
  2. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    So it's a weird situation and I'm probably over thinking it, but I want to know what actual ENTJs think. I'm an INTP female and in my high school class there is this one guy. I asked him once for help with something through messenger and after that, I asked him to take the test because he seemed...
  3. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Any other INFPs out there socially deficient, especially when it comes to talking with women? Sometimes I'm good with talking to strangers, but I feel like these issues hinder me from finding a girlfriend / meaningful relationship: - "beta" male, don't believe in dominance nor manipulation -...
  4. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Whether this may be because you are quiet out of being in your own world of ideas or you have a natural disdain and irritation in regards to the real world, what's your experience in dealing with people in this respect? Have you ever experienced people seeing you in this way? I feel like this...

  7. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I know everyone has had some experience, that's obvious. What I really want to know is- are you socially awkward? Having Ne as a dominant function, similarly to extraverted sensing, I feel like the problem of not thinking something through before saying it could be a more common problem. Its...
  8. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I think my Fe is unhealthy. (or it's just my social anxiety) Recently (past couple/few months) I've become more and more concerned of what other people think about me. I constantly feel like I need to please them and apologize if I've ever done or said something wrong. Also I think I'm hanging...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm rather socially awkward in general and socially anxious and I feel quite stupid in social situations. I think it's because I can't express myself properly or that I seem shallow and dull to others since I don't speak up easily and have nothing much to say or add or have an opinion on the...

    Almost as long as I can remember I've struggled with not being able to take it easy in social situations. Was it face-to-face or even just a skype conversation, with a friend or a stranger, with many people or just one-on-one. I tend to not properly think through what I'm saying and tend to...
  11. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello INFJ community. First time inquiry here. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced the brush off as a pattern with others after you put yourself out there. I don't mean this in a romantic way. I mean females with other females, or males with other males. I find it hard to put myself...
  12. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Does anyone else have a LOT of trouble when it comes to flirting? :confused:
  13. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    so I have a problem and I hoped maybe some of you more experienced INFP's might be able to help: the problem...of partying! I'm on 'freshers week' at my new university and I'm currently living with some very extroverted people who are very nice and keen to include me in stuff including wild...

    Hi! I'm 16 and this is the 100000th time I write this line because the page would refresh whenever I go look up sth. :D School I'm in high school atm, will begin 11th grade this autumn, Maths Informatics. Which doesn't suit me much. Maths was never my thing, although I got good at it because of...
  15. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Quite a daunting challenge, as it seems. I'm a 1w9, so I typically remain withdrawn, neither asserting myself nor challenging others. However, I have realized that it is important to develop social skills in order to be taken seriously. I'm lost as to where to begin - should I try to develop a...
  16. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi everyone! I am an INTP and from what I gather INTP is the least occurring MBTI type in females the world over. I would like to take this opportunity to interact with fellow INTPs, women and men both, as I haven't come across another INTP in my social circle, which as you can guess, is quite...
  17. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hello! This is my first try at starting a thread. ENTJs are infamous for their social awkwardness, and are considered by many to be the most socially isolated of all the extroverts. Being straightforward and sometimes too serious or blunt, we may find ourselves in some particularly strange or...

    I'm an INFP and I find it hard to socialize with people for long periods of time (duh.) Normally I'm fine when I know the person but if not, people tend to write me off as weird or arrogant because I don't go out of my way to get to know someone and find out who they are. The thing is...
  19. Myers Briggs Forum
    Ok, so I was talking to a friend this evening and it came up that most of my behavior is an act. I consider myself far more mature than the average college student, but that is definitely not reflected in my behavior. Oftentimes I play the fool, or I am the clown among my group of friends just...
