  1. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I write novellas (2 so far, a 3rd under way) that I just give away to family and friends. You know, self-published stuff. One pattern I've noticed - especially since I've started to hand them out to my MBTI group I co-lead - is a bad response due to the mature and darker themes in both works...
  2. Intro
    Hiya, just joined today. Not sure if this website is dead or not. I've known that I'm an ENTP for a long time and fit all of the functions but don't fit into the awkward/gamer/tomboyish stereotype. I'm not awkward (anymore), I learned how to manipulate social situations through a lot of...
  3. Myers Briggs Forum
    Hey everyone! I'm the INFP daughter of an ISFP Mom, and I've noticed over this past year how there are several traits my Mom has that are not the stereotypical ISFP. She's not particularly vain, not a hipster, and she doesn't paint. *talks to self, Why do all these personality thingies say they...
  4. Guess the type
    You know that emo kid with a bag covered with anime pins, probably dyed hair, black oversized jumper with kanji and a passion for all things Japanese? Most likely has an obsession for drawing manga, too. Lives in anime world pretty much all the time. Of course, this kid could be any type, but...
  5. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Insightful, sensitive, altruistic, organized, quiet… INFJ descriptions can get pretty cliché, as any other summed up characterization specifically written for "pop" articles that need to be consumed quickly. As I cannot speak for other INFJs, I will merely show in which respects I differ from...
  6. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    what are some misunderstandings/stereotypings that may no necessarily be true that people have about INTJs? (eg. not all INTJs are hard workers) discuss!
  7. General Psychology
    Hi there everyone, I always love looking up personality charts, quotes, descriptions and so much more about the MBTI. So I was just wondering if you fit the stereotype your personality has. Because I personally do :D Please don't be angry with me if this thread already existed. This is my...
  8. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    ENFPs are stereotyped as vapid, manic children. It frustrates me because they are actually very analytical and thoughtful. Here's a video of a male and female ENFP When I post videos of ENFPs on my channel, people often comment (on youtube or reddit) saying that they must be INFPs because...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hey fellow Idealists! So, I've read in a number of different articles that INFPs are indifferent on the topic of fashion. While I think this is very true about fashion TRENDS (because I don't think any of us care for following trends) is this a simple stereotype or do you really not like...
  10. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hello. A friend of mine who seems to be an INTJ somehow defies certain stereotypes of the type. I am trying to find out if he still qualifies as an INTJ. These are: 1. He doesn't read much, in general. However, when he does read, he is a very effective and efficient reader. 2. He reads to...
  11. Myers Briggs Forum
    For example, some things I've heard from various types: INTP: I've played League of Legends for a total of 224 hours in the past year. Not counting the other games I play, obviously. You know, I DO have a life, but it's just 90% video games. INTJ: If I could do anything? I would like to say I'd...
  12. Generation Z Forum
    All the other Generations subforums on PerC have a little tagline, but I just noticed that GenZ does not. GenY Example: "Information, digital and communication aged maniacs." I guess GenZ hasn't been around long enough yet to have a clear collective stereotype. Do you guys think you can come...
  13. Blog
    -- Source Site -- INTP Stereotype: INTPs are emotionless and socially awkward. Reality: INTPs are incredibly deep thinkers and correspondingly deep feelers. They are just as capable as (if not more capable than) any other type when it comes to experiencing deep emotions – they just aren’t as...
  14. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Stereotypes are misleading...but they usually got started from some kind of truth...before they were unfortunately exaggerated. So, ISTJs (and non-ISTJs, I suppose) what is the most STEREOTYPICALLY ISTJ thing you've ever done? I'll start. Once I brought a device to measure decibel-level of...
  15. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    While many people say that cynics are just defeated idealists, I find that I'm idealistic on the outside but deep down I'm very cynical. This doesn't affect my appreciation for the world around me much but I cannot identify with idealistic world views. As INFPs we're often called idealistic and...
  16. Myers Briggs Forum
    Most of my family are Sensors. Sometimes I just wonder what it feels like. I always imagine it to be fun and free. So, can anyone describe what being an S type feels like? How does it impact/ enrich your life? My family don't really understand my sister and I (N types)... How do you perceive N...
  17. Intro
    I'm new here and identify as INTP now, although my earliest attempts at the test suggested a borderline INFP. But.... the stereotypes of the "architect" or the "logician" throw me. I'm not a math or science guru, but I do deeply identify with the more exhaustive INTP analyses, while the INFP...
  18. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    INFJ had this thread idea and I could not find an existing one for INTJ, so I made this. What are some things about you that are not very INTJ?
  19. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    How would being personable affect the average ENTJ cliché? The way I see it, an ENTJ that was both well-liked and respected would have an advantage over the domineering stereotypical ENTJs. With more people to willingly support the ENTJs goal, efficiency would soar and success would come...
  20. Myers Briggs Forum
    Just a light-hearted little activity I thought up, along the lines of that "what X thinks I do/what I really do" meme. Post one representative pic of how you think your MBTI type is stereotyped by other types, then a pic of how you see your own MBTI type (or do any type you like.) Like so...
