socializing

  1. General Psychology
    I had a conversation with a friend, and he mentions about seeing energetic bonds or cords from people. I notice the same too, though didn't know it was a thing. These tendrils or bonds can either shift away, in the case that the social bond breaks to some extent, or move closer, as two people...
  2. Myers Briggs Forum
    What are your experiences when you were an introvert forced to socialize and maybe even thought you were an extravert? Or maybe you're an extravert who doesn't have friends (me) for several reasons and had to learn to be alone? I think the first example is more common in US and Canadian...
  3. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey! I was always this kid nobody would really talk to, because I was always kinda weird I guess. And if we’re the chameleons, I wonder why that might be, because in all other aspects I identify with an infj personality (now). So, the one thing I wanted from you: how can I find people to talk...
  4. Myers Briggs Forum
    So what types do you get along with and which ones don't you get alone with , and even ones your indifferent of. According to your own personal life experience ? I'll start. And again , just my life experience so far. ( Might include assumptions but I'm just going off my experience ) ( * Get...
  5. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Apologies for the incoherent rant. Head's a bit muddled. I’m just looking to hear from anyone who can relate/has any thoughts on INFP issues. I guess the general theme is relationships, life, pushing yourself etc. I’m a 28 year-old INFP (I think?) guy. I just got out of a four-year...
  6. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm interested in hearing about how fellow INFPs do with relationships. How do you meet people? Do you date? When did you start dating? As an introvert, it's really hard for me to put energy into people I don't think are going to stick around, so dating is basically Hell for me. I have been on...
  7. Blog
    A neighbor invited me to a lunch and a lecture: free, so I ate and then walked the halls and went to the library and talked with people before coming back for the end. I have no patience with lectures. I need true "interaction" if I am with people. Being talked at, and given information that...
  8. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    After realizing I can only connect with others using a shared external activity, I've come to the conclusion I have to learn to interact with people for various purposes. Once I do make connections they're stonk as hell, but making them in the first place seem to be pure luck so far and I seem...
  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...
  10. 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...
  11. NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Seriously. This is a clarion call for all the NT women. We need to form a coalition. I am an ENTP and I thought for years that I was a feeling type. After all, isn't it so acceptable and encouraged to be emotional and nurturing? Now I'm not saying we aren't, because we are just as capable...
  12. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    Hi there! I'm a 19 year old INTP guy who knows an ENFJ girl. We knew each other by being in the same class through high school and by having mutual friends. I honestly don't know if she considers me a friend or if I consider her to be mine (don't take this the wrong way, INTPs value people...
  13. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Please, help me. :C A year ago I became a subject of gossip in my class - everything was made up and told by an enemy of mine (ex-friend I can say, hah). It was the very first year and after that no one wanted to talk to me or to invite me to anything, pretty much. I spent that year in a deep...
  14. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    [Rant] PARENTS, Socializing as an Introvert and "Setting an Example for Siblings" Hello! [rant] Just had a fight with my dad over not being social enough for his silly standards. Yeah, I do avoid any kind of socializing most of the time, because well, that's what I'm like and I guess if you...
  15. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I am an INFJ to the core. Very I, very N, very F, very J. The introvert's introvert. Yet after months of hand-wringing and doubt I finally made myself go to an improv class. And it was everything I hoped it would be. I don't want to jinx it... but THIS is what it feels like when INFJ's...
  16. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    For a clear Introvert like me, I generally have no qualms about being alone all day, in my room, as long as I am warm and comfy that is. However, once a month, or so, I come out of my shell to socialize and I believe this is to release 'psychological tension' as a result of gaining more and more...
  17. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I tend to feign a lot of emotion in conversation. I exaggerate responses and interest most of the time. Socialization has almost become a stage to me; I know what elicits good reactions/laughter, and I can just go for it. I've done it so often that it's become a knee-jerk reaction. I get the...
  18. Blog
    I've just moved to a new country quite different from mine for uni and I'm having difficulty trying to talk/meet new people because I'm quite shy even at home and don't know how to start the conversation most of the time. I'm living in a hall and in big groups (more than 4) I barely speak at...
  19. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    So guys just now i have been speculating my behaviour for the last two months and i just realised i have been almost entirely extraverted then and its mainly because i learn't to just let loose at almost any time i feel like it so i want to compare myself with other intj's reguarding this. When...
  20. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    when i meet people anew, specially in a new class, or workplace, or something, i am often asked this question. recently i joined a class where everyone quite younger than me, and i don't quite feel at home there. often, they tell me i have a very serious, grave look on my face, as if i am only...
