  1. [INFP] Paradoxical Extravert Shutout (PES)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, I made up this term to describe something that happens to me and that I hate very much. Maybe it happens to you too. So, introverts are seen as "shy", perhaps, because we don't initiate social things as much. And extraverts aren't shy because they are more out there and social. Paradoxical...
  2. [INTP] Do People Think You Looked Depressed or Disinterested?

    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...
  3. [INFJ] Intensity of emotions felt when alone increases after social interactions

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So I'm wondering if anyone else experiences this.. I spent a lot of my time alone behind the computer every day (working) and I barely see anyone except for family members and some friends every now and then. So the longer I spent alone, the less intense I seem to feel. I don’t know, it feels...
  4. Can Your Instincts Ever Change?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Title says it all, but I was wondering if your instincts can ever change? Whether it be the order, or intensity of each instinct, etc... Asking for a friend. :tongue:
  5. Introverted ENFJ coming through!

    Hey everyone, I've been meaning to join this site for a while now and finally got round to it ;) Just a little about myself, I'm a 19 year old Psychology student who's recently moved away for university. I used to be an INTJ but somehow I keep getting ENFJ on my last few attempts. My main...
  6. [INFP] Stealing money from a blind man (social experiment)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    How do you feel about this social experiment? I was shocked and inflamed. The former can be initially seen as confusing, because I feel like I always rant about how much society sucks, but then at the same time, I feel pretty naive. In the sense that it's still hard for me to comprehend how...
  7. How to deal with social rejection when you already feel like you don't belong?

    General Psychology
    Hey PerC, I would dump the whole story as to why I'm making this post, but I'd rather not do that. It is not something I want to relive, nor is it something I want to ruminate on. I want to crush it, I want to get rid of it. But basically, I was in a bad place a time in the past and didn't make...
  8. Art and creative careers & the types

    Education & Career Talk
    Hi! In this thread I would like to talk about art an creative careers, and how your type influences in it. In my case, I'm a very arty person. I love music, illustration, graphic design, cinema, writing, photography, video games... I love arty creations in general, and I would love to use my...
  9. Good afternoon, Good evening, and Good night

    Hello FELLOW HUMANS. I am an INTx, engineering graduate, software developer, music lover, and bookworm. I guess that puts me in the "typical internet user and is possibly a robot" demographic. But that's okay. I assure you that I am indeed a HUMAN, and that I have come here to collect data about...
  10. [ESFP] ESFPs, Where Do You Meet New People, When You Need To?

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    Soooo, maybe typical of ESFPs, maybe not, but my social circle is very limited, admittedly, because I made it so. And there are no interesting men in it whatsoever. My calendar is overbooked, so any time investment I make has to be well targeted, if I want to expand, and at this point, I don't...
  11. Addicted to Social Media

    Advice Center
    Hi there! I've noticed that I have a dependency on social media and I constantly feel the urge to check it. I feel it affects my quality of life and happiness in a negative way, and I really want to quit. Every time I try, I end up relapsing and check it again. Are there any tips to greatly...
  12. [Generation Z] Social Media

    Generation Z Forum
    Is it just me, or do think it's sad how obsessed people are over social media? I see people around me all the time on Snapchat and Instagram, and they seem to be obsessive about it. I wish people would put more value in interpersonal interactions instead of the pictures they post. I myself am...
  13. [ENTP] Have You Met Social Awkwardness?

    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...
  14. [INTP] Do we have to change my views in order to be socially better?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Recently I've been more craving social interactions and I surprise myself enjoying it more than usual. I am still quite awkward and goofy, but I would like to improve on that. I think I lack "warmth", maybe I seem to be rude, blunt and overall a jerk to others. Truth is I have difficulties...
  15. Which Instinctual Variant or Subtype conversation(s) sounds most like you?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    What core type and wing(s) are you? Which of these conversations can you relate to most? What are your stacking? I wonder what variant(s) that enjoys discussions about religion, politics and sex without getting emotional about it? Topics SP (Self-Preservation) types might bring up in...
  16. [INFJ] Struggling to put out vibes

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    The flaw I'm having the most trouble with is that I don't put off enough vibes or energies or information about myself. People can't really connect to me because I don't give them anything to go off. I've been trying to lately but am struggling. Subconsciously it's hard for me to open up or give...
  17. [INTJ] Do INTJs find low confidence unattractive?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I know I'm an INTJ and many MBTI sources describe the INTJ to be arrogant/confident (though the MBTI description honestly doesn't mean that much---that's really a discussion for another time) but I can't help but notice that it's statistically significant among INTJs (at least online) so just...
  18. [ENTP] How the hell do you get people to talk to you?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Nobody wants to play with me! Hanging out with people is new to me and I wonder how you attract people, just general people to interact with. With me it's that they talk to me for a bit and then they shy away as if there's something that's bothering them. They naturally go talk to someone else...
  19. Should I quit Social Media?

    Advice Center
    Hey guys! I'm debating whether to quit social media or not. I've tried quitting before, but then I had urges to log on again. Any advice?
