  3. Tips for becoming a better conversationalist?

    Advice Center
    To begin with, I'm an ISTP. ISTPs appear attractive because we have an air of mystery and we don't really care what others think. People say they like my personality and my cool demeanor but I wish I was a better talker. I have countless imaginary conversations in my mind. I write a lot on...
  4. [INTP] How to get parents and school to stop trying to get me to make friends?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I have about average social skills, but I don't have any friends because I can't find anyone with my interests yet.

  5. I enjoy making people angry, and I'd like to control it better.

    Advice Center
    So, my entire life(after I learned speech) I've had the blessing/curse of being able to pick out people's flaws. This is great if someone is being rude to me, since I can shut them down quickly(I'm also good at arguing), but because I really dislike people, it's on a bit of a hair trigger. In...

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm sure that I'm an F, an N and a J, but when it comes to E or I...its 50-50. Right smack in the middle. I hate being alone and need social contact or to just go outside and do stuff. Being alone makes me depressed and I get bored, cranky. Same thing happens when out with people...

    I don't have friends, I have no one around me, and I live like this for years. My psychologist told me that I suffer of not-having-normal-social-skills. Let me starts from the begging ... I had a bad family: always fight, always anger, and my parents finally separated. I was an Introversion...
  12. [INFP] Three Musketeers Ideal

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've never actually read The Three Musketeers but I couldn't think of anything more suitable... I've always sort of pined for a one or a group of best friends that passed the time by making cynically comic remarks about life as they watched from the sidelines. Okay, not that specific, but you...

    Would you be loud, spontaneous, quiet, serious, etc. when introducing yourself to someone? What kind of topics would you talk about to others in highschool? Would you lie that you need help in a math problem, but you absolutely know how to do it but you only ask just to start a conservation...
