  1. Why does modern culture look down upon marriage so much?

    Sex and Relationships
    I'm only 19, so I can't say that I know much about life; yet something that really bothers me about our time is how much marriage is seen as something you probably shouldn't do. I understand that it can romanticized far too much and that it's far from perfect. However, whenever I see videos...
  2. [INFP] INFP's, do you ever feel like an alien dropped on planet Earth?

    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. Big picture discussion: What would you change in today's society?

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    This is a thread dedicated to the establishment of a great big picture think tank! So here is how it goes: Name what you would want to fix/change/improve in today's society/world and how you would plan on achieving that. What do you think needs to be done in order to make it a reality? Do you...

  6. Fe in different cultures

    Cognitive Functions
    Extraverted Feeling deals with value judgments in social and cultural dynamics. It's one of the most common functions in Western society (probably American), but i'd like to see examples of how it works in all sorts of societies. Example: China Fe can be all about "unspoken social contracts"...
  7. [INTP] Your Ideal Society

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    My question is: What is your ideal society? If you had the ability to create a society from scratch or change the current one, what would be some of the things you would implement / take away? I'll start off: I would start off by removing 9 - 5 jobs, and replacing them with jobs that are...
  8. Extravert forced to be introvert & vice versa?

    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...

    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...
  10. Responding to suicide (how??)

    General Psychology
    Obviously a sensitive topic, don't read on if you don't like it. Unfortunately people in our society can have terrible lives and mental states (and more) that can lead them to take their own lives. I'm young, so to more socially experienced people out there: How are you supposed to react as...
  11. [INFP] What is INFPs purpose in society?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello fellow INFPs <3 Um. I'm from Norway and I love cats :fall: I've been thinking about INFPs and their purpose in society, after reading an "INFP is useless in society" thread. I can't help but to agree with the statement: that ESTJ people probably are more suited and preferred by the...
  12. [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...
  13. Work and the Loneliness Epidemic (article)

    General Psychology
    Work and the Loneliness Epidemic https://hbr.org/cover-story/2017/09/work-and-the-loneliness-epidemic Thoughts, discussions? I've been out of the corporate world and been a small business owner for close to a decade now. Naturally, despite knowing I'm not alone in this, I have to fight...
  14. Is it just me, or is society a pointless hellhole run by sjs?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Maybe that's just where I live. I love informal debating, and anytime I raise a point, my conversation partner's rebuttal is 'because those are the rules.' Is it inaccurate to expect more of them? I think not, but maybe this is just the folly of humankind. Everyone is domineering...
  15. [ENTP] Do you think my move is bold?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hello ENTP´s. This post might also have fit in the education category. But I want your ENTP point of view on this. Sooooo, I want to go to college/university/whatever you want to call a higher education institute. My situation is the following: I don´t have the citizenship of the country I...

  17. [INFP] [Thought Experiment] The Red Planet

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm really disappointed with our today's society. Still so much aggressivity, violence, crime, disease, starvation, pollution, injustice, inequality, e.g.. In my view the human doesn't seem to learn from history. Therefore I've thought about solutions... >>What if the whole world would be ruled...
  18. Theory About Cognitive Functions and Their Effect on General Society

    Cognitive Functions
    After much thought and reflection about our current society, I have come up with a rather far-fetched but sensible theory on how cognitive functions have molded our society into what it is today. First of all, Si is believed to be the most common dominant or auxiliary function (xSxJ's are...
  19. [Generation Z] Do You Ever Think About The Future?

    Generation Z Forum
    Hey there, as one of the older Generation Zs out there I'm actually very curious to know how those younger than me view the future. See here's the rundown of questions I have, you don't have to answer them all unless you wanna. Do you ever think about the future? Do you think about yourself or...
  20. How to rule the World

    Blog
    Society is just a world of expectations and when you don't fulfill every single one you get burned. There is no loyalty, there is simply reputation. Its never really you, its just a mask. If you stack the deck you can own the world but you will lose your grip at some point won't you? All the...
