  1. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    8s are naturally dominant in the way they navigate the world. But, as an 8, are you still dominant during sex, or do you like to feel submissive for once? If you chose submissive, do you still feel like it is a powerful act to be submissive, or does it turn you on to lose control?
  2. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hi! I'm an Sx, 6w7, INFP (tritype 6w7, 9w1, 3w4). I'm fairly phobic with moments of counterphobia. Recently, I've observed an odd desire to recede into the submissive role of a romantic relationship. Weirdly, my counterphobia is bothered by this, but the rest of my being desperately desires it...
  3. Sex and Relationships
    I have been dating/living with my significant other for 2 years now. She is an INFP, I am an INFJ. We're both submissive types which leads to a lot of sexual frustration. Neither of us want to initiate or be in charge and she is definitely of the traditional mindset that I should be doing all...
  4. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hello everyone! This is my first post, so I hope I don't mess it up. If I have done something wrong or anything please let me know - I am clueless of how this all works. I am a 6w5 and self-pres/sexual and a very strong phobic tendency. I scan everyone I meet very fast and in almost every...
  5. Sex and Relationships
    I'm a male INFJ, and my fiancee is a female ISFJ. I noticed that usually when I try to initiate something, it will become very apparent to me if she's not quite into it for whatever reason, and that will cause me to be less into it. So naturally I've let her "take the reigns" so to speak, that...
  6. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hi everyone, I've started checking out enneagram and I'm pretty sure I fit the enneagram 6 best. I was wondering if you could relate to my following experiences.. Often times in social situations I am very acute to the balance of power, who wants power, who has power, the underdog etc. I was...
  7. Sex and Relationships
    This is my first post on the Sex and Relationships thread- I've rarely ventured out of my own Myers-Briggs forum! But I think this might be the venue for such a discussion. I've been theorizing about the correlation between personality (mostly Enneagram, but also MBTI) and the...
  8. General Psychology
    Up for a little experiment? Are you right or left handed? Which is your dominant eye? (not always the same as your hands) Now Glance upwards. Glance downwards. Did you tilt your head slightly or notice a slight drifting of your eyes to one side or the other? If you can raise one eyebrow...
  9. Sex and Relationships
    My desires are leading me to be dominant, or at least to explore it. Emotional dominance, mental dominance, physical dominance, the whole nine. The problem is I am not a naturally dominant man. It just doesn't come to me easily. It's even more frustrating that my demeanor and physical appearance...
  10. Sex and Relationships
    I was wondering if personality type had any bearing on someones preference for either the dominant or submissive role. The stereotypical female submissive (think the girl in "Secretary") seems like an NF to me, while the stereotypical Dominant seems rather NT-ish. This would explain the...
