  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. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This is my first time here! Love to bring this one up with like minded people. Am I the only one that feels this way? Ever since I saw the light of day I've felt different from everyone around me. I have friends (small groups, of people I trust), have a good job, live in a great part of the...
  3. 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...
  4. What's my personality type?
    I'm still trying to kind of figure out my personality type and something that is really confusing to me are my social habits. I know a common introvert stereotype is someone who has a few close friends but is uncomfortable around people in general, hates crowds, would rather stay in than go to a...

  6. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hello, I am afraid this is a long text, but I wanted to be as accurate as I could. I am an INFJ -doing its best with the English language, so I apologize if I make any mistake-, and some time ago I met an ENFJ. It was strangely reassuring for me to connect that easily with him. Usually it...
  7. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    As a female INTJ, and knowing I am apparently rare, I'm curious what everyone thinks as far as biology and societal pressure influencing female INTJs' behavior. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe females are inclined to be more caring and aware of others' emotions, as a result of the...
  8. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    As an ENTJ, I do find myself being involved and engage in many social circles. Yet I don't actually feel I am a social butterfly at my core. I don't necessarily feel the need to go out and socialize, I love having friends but at times my idea of having fun revolves around a good book, basically...
  9. Blog
    This is purely my opinion and is in NO way to be mistaken for type of propaganda or objectivity. This is how I see it with what I know and should be looked at as something to build from NOT live by. Q: You really think empathy is a basic instinct? I was going to ask you yesterday if you...
  10. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    This is my first post on Personality Cafe :tongue: German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche is generally typed as an INTJ however upon studying his works and his personal life it becomes obvious that he is most likely an INFJ. This is not surprising as many male INFJ's are mistyped as INTJ's...
  11. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I really don't like an immense majority of the people in my life. They are boring, materialistic, emotionally underdeveloped, supremely uninteresting. Thus I frequently retreat. But after a while of evading interaction, I find that the insidious hunger for social activity and the company of...
  12. Blog
    Although it comes in handy, I feel a lot of times like it's out of my control. I'm a slightly different person in every social situation, and it makes it really hard for me to know who I am sometimes, it's very confusing. I don't do it to gain approval, but rather to create harmony. It's as if...
  13. Sex and Relationships
    Hello PerC world :) I was originally going to post this in the INFP forum (sharing with my fellow MBTI types) but I think this holds some value and justice for many people, especially in places like this (forums, internet). I'm not sure if this will be of value to anyone, but in the chance it...
  14. Blog
    I've been thinking a lot about the concept of finding one's tribe (intellectually). This led me to personality testing and, finally, here. In this fragmented world, it's so hard to find kindred spirits. Apparently, it's even harder for my personality type, INTP, simply because there are fewer of...
  15. 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...
  16. General Psychology
    In response to a thread by mnemonicfx, I've started a new thread here to test a theory I proposed in his thread (http://personalitycafe.com/general-psychology/36749-what-amount-threads-specific-forum-personality-type.html#post804701). I started this thread in the INTJ forum three days ago...
  17. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I read Rosalind Wiseman's book, Queen Bees and Wannabes, when my daughter was in middle school. I wanted to better understand the cliques and power trips she was likely to encounter as she began to mature. http://rosalindwiseman.com/publications/queen-bees-and-wannabes/ Girl Cliques - The Roles...
