  1. [Enneagram Type 9] 952 - Knowledge or Nobody

    Body Triad - Types 8,9,1
    Tritype 952 - Knowledge or Nobody The song is originally from Oz, yet I found this cover and realized the words struck a chord with me. I could while away the hours Conferrin' with the flowers Consultin' with the rain And my head I'd be scratchin' While my thoughts were busy hatchin' If I...
  2. The Good Night Thread

  3. Personifying the Psyche

    Cognitive Functions
    I just want to say at the beginning that, while this post specifically applies to novels, it doesn't necessarily need to. I'm aiming to present a theory on how the cognitive functions of a person might be personified, not just for writing but in any place where it might be used. * * * As an...
  4. [Enneagram Type 4] Type Four and Three of Swords

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I have been working a bit with Tarot and the three of swords stands out to me as a very "type 4" card... The Three of Swords represents rejection, sadness, loneliness, heartbreak, betrayal, separation and grief. Such events feel so painful because they are unexpected. However, the Three...
  5. Personality and Color Associations

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Of course tastes are separate from Personality, but I’m curious how individual people view their taste in colors in relation to their personality. For some people it seems like they strongly identify with certain colors, while other people don’t. Each person is likely to have slightly...
  6. [INFP] Do you become obsessed with symbolism in movies and books?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Whenever I read a good book or watch a good movie I always become enchanted with the characters and symbolism in the book or movie. I often times want to be like the characters in the book and sometimes even incorporate the motifs and little symbolic items into my outfits. Right now my favorite...
  7. Magic is art

    There is some confusion as to what magic actually is. I think this can be cleared up if you just look at the very earliest descriptions of magic. Magic in its earliest form is often referred to as "the art". I believe this is completely literal. I believe that magic is art and that art...
  8. Dreams and the subconscious

    General Psychology
    Feel a bit embarassed to be posting this topic since it usually brings insults whenever I mention it outside of the internet, but I'm curious. I've tried bringing up this topic before with my friends, but my esfp friend either responds with a) You're thinking too deeply about this. Or b) He...
  9. The colorful world of adverting

    General Psychology
    You ever notice that a lot of businesses use similar colors. Fast food chains use a lot of red and yellow to get your attention, they get you to come in order and get out. Let look at the colors and what they can represent. Red is a color that attracts us with passion but can warn of danger...
  10. [INFP] Infp Symbol

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    This is kinda random and weird, but i think it would be kinda cool if infps had some sort of symbol to show they are infp. I don't want to like start a cult or something, but I feel as if that if someone saw me walking around they would have no clue i was infp. I have read alot of forums...
  11. [INFJ] INFJ's and Symbolist Painters

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Do any of you INFJ art appreciators who know what the symbolist movement was have a strong attraction to the decadence of that time period and the religious/moral/psychological undertones of it? I swear I feel like this movement was built based around our psyche (or is it just me and my mildly...
