    Of course, an INTJ can be alone and not feel bad or lonely. In fact, sometimes a lot can be accomplished by oneself. And, sometimes? Solitude is an INTJ's friend. But. . . . . What Does An INTJ Do When Feeling Lonely?? Can an INTJ feel overwhelmingly alone?? Or. . . . is it just the way...
  2. What's my Enneagram type?
    1. What drives you in life? What do you look for? Find a sense of all this, understand and explore reality (but fatigue to act in an active exploration in the open world). I look for total understanding. 2. What do you hope to accomplish in your life? To understand the core of reality and leave...

  8. Intro
    Hello everyone, first of all let me introduce myself. I am pretty sure about my 3 letters -STJ. But it is very hard for me to determine whether I am Introvert or Extrovert. The last time I take the 16personalities MBTI test, the result shows that I am 55% extrovert, while 45% introvert...

    A brazen alarm tears through the silk screen of my slumber Seemingly mere moments since I peeked and saw dawn Now a sinister sun has unseated the moon from its throne Cracks its whip and the plastic army men align Hey you, take the bus and go meet with some faceless talking head Extoll your...
  10. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    Do you have one? You know, a physical place you go to retreat from the noisy world and the demands of all the needy people around you? Last night, I got back from a three day camping trip. On the trip, I had no downtime from people, no private or personal space even at night. The one time I...

    I have been to the black hole And seen its bottomless misery Witnessed its plague of apathy Fell victim to its lethargy I have been to the bridewell And heard its iron clink behind me Trapped in the darkness Where no one cared to find me I have carried the burden of storm clouds That hover and...

    Grief The scents you smell after the rain The strength you find after the pain The thoughts that rattled ‘round your brain As you realized she’d never be back again. The storm has passed and you’re renewed A strength because you no longer brood A calm that comes...
  13. Intro
    Former manager of charities, now retired. Channeled my NT into developing systems. I was too analytical to work well 1:1 with people. If I had my life to live over, I would have gone into genetics counseling, forensics, or quantum physics, but it wasn't possible when I was in college -- the...
  14. General Psychology
    The article below says that introversion has nothing to do with shyness --- instead, it's all about how you derive your energy. Introverts get energy through solitude and reflection, according the article, and extroverts from social interaction. But I feel the article does not hit on other...
  15. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I have a feeling this would be more of a problem to 5w4s than to 5w6s but we'll see what kind of responses show up on this topic. Every now and again I get stuck in this cycle where I start feeling lonely because I'm not getting noticed enough but I don't really want to spend extra time with...
  16. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    What's the maximum amount of time you've spent alone? What effect did it have on you? How would your life be different if you spent 99% of your time alone, and only 1% as verbal or face to face contact? *This question is for anyone, not just INTPs.
  17. Myers Briggs Forum
    This time of year everyone is running around, shopping, cooking, talking, visiting, giving, receiving, eating, and drinking. And more I guess, but those are the main ones. For me, I get fed up with the social interaction pretty quickly. Not just fed up but totally tired out. This is probably...
  18. Intro
    My names is doug, I'm 15 and I live with my extremely conservative mother and stepdad. As an INFP I've always struggled to fit in. With my peers, my parents, my brother, and basically anyone and everyone in my life. In the past year, I've struggled with my emotions. I've tried to suppress...
