  1. What are your teachers' MBTI types?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Ok, I'll start with mine: P.E.: ESTx; not sure which. I cut his class too many times anyway. Math: ISFJ; she's really kind and sweet; with a good sense of humor. She gives out difficult and long tests though. Health: ESTJ; very strong Te to the point of being intimidating (Case in point: of...
  2. [ENFP] ENFP teachers: what is it like to be one and/or be taught by one?

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi there! I am ENFP who recently ventured into teaching. I got an opportunity earlier this year to teach biochemistry as an adjunct lecturer to pre-med students at university level. It's something I have always wanted to do since I was little and so was beyond excited when I got the job. Also...
  3. [INTP] Friendship Preferences for Older Individuals (Particularly Educators)?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I apologise if this has been discussed before any time in the recent past. This question has just occurred to me while reading posts in other unrelated threads. I am someone who, since maybe middle school, seems to have a general preference for older people as conversation partners, especially...
  4. Is Teaching a Mediocre Profession?

    Member Polls
    Public school, private school, charter school, religious school, higher education at college, childhood education, etc. ... Do teachers engage in a mediocre profession? You can argue what mediocre means in the comments, but I'll leave the poll options at yes and no. Some of you hate/hated...
  5. Teachers and MBTI

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I am wondering what types are most likely to become teachers and what each type is most likely to teach. Please think back to high school and list the MBTI type of some of your teachers, what they taught, and their gender. Feel free to add a brief summary of what they were like. Here's mine...
  6. [INTJ] Were you liked by your teachers at school?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I'm currently 16 and I go to high school. I realise that my teachers often don't really like me personally, but they still give me the best grades and comments about how driven I am/distinct, etc. The pro-authority types that hate people who challenge them often reluctantly hands me...
  7. Dear 1st grade teacher, was humiliation the goal? Did the punishment fit the crime?

    Like many I have my share of unpleasant grade school memories. Mostly due to students, but one of my worst memories stems from my first grade teacher. I don't remember much about most of my teacher's, but I will never forget her. Each day I eagerly anticipated the recess bell when we could get...
  8. Any fellow teachers in here?

    Education & Career Talk
    Hello friends! I am a student teacher wrapping up my practicum this year and I had an interesting thought. Is there a way for me to use Myers Briggs typology appropriately with students? I know that it is a very personal and sometimes spiritual topic but I think that by understanding the...
  9. Teachers sleeping with their students

    Sex and Relationships
    This post does a good job explaining how prevalent these stories have become: I disagree with the author that it's usually a woman carrying out the act. I've heard or read of countless stories where it's the other way around.
  10. Instructors <Good/Bad> EXPERIENCES you had

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Perhaps a common thread which may horrify T, and ring true with F. I did much better with instructors that I liked. And worse if I dis-liked, regardless of the subject. This did NOT mean I did not do well with NT, but it was easier to dislike if there was an arragant attitude, which to my nature...
  11. What is your Experience with Good/Bad <Teachers>

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I was reflecting (and cringing) on my experiences over the years with teachers,and thinking of them retroactivly in terms of Meyers-Briggs. I did not find consistent good/bad teachers, according to my/their types. An idea that started this question, was recalling a particularly good teacher...
  12. [INFP] INFPs and School

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Okay. As an xNFP, i come up with a lot of theories, and ive come up with a new one nobody has challenged. While struggling in school, i was wondering why INFPs do good in elementary and struggle in high school. There are probably multiple reasons why, concerning the harder curriculum and our...
  13. [ENTP] Any ENTP teachers out there?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hi! I just joined, and if there's already been posts about this, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could link me, or if this post belongs somewhere else, feel free to let me know. I'm 24 years old and hoping to be a middle or high school teacher. I'm currently a substitute teacher, and at this...
  14. [INFP] How INFP feel about INFJ and vice versa

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have know a lot of INFPs and I was wondering what INFPs think of INFJs? As for what we think of INFPs (from my perspective).... I love INFPs. Every INFP I've known has picked me up when I've fallen down (which I do a lot...). They help me look up when I get too bogged down by stress, and they...
  15. [INFP] I haven't done homework for the last three years, and I've never had detention.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I haven't done a piece of homework for the last three years. I know I have to do it, but I procrastinate until the eleventh hour, and then cant be bothered to do it ( either because I have got distracted or because I cba). When the teacher asks why I haven't, I am extrodinarliy good at coming...
  16. For SJs who are school teachers, what motivated you to become a teacher?

    SJ's Temperament Forum- The Overseers
    My husband is an INTJ college professor, and he's currently doing a few education classes---teaching teachers. Since he's not allowed to do MBTI *yet*, he wanted me to ask some SJs: "What motivated you to become a teacher? What drives you? What interests you about educating young people?"...
  17. [INTJ] Bad Teachers

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    When you are/were in school, were there any teachers you really hated or who really hated you? What type do you think these bad teachers were? Did you let those teachers stop you from doing well in school? And finally, do you think INTJs would make good or bad teachers?
  18. My 1st impression on teachers sucked...

    So 2 days ago I had school. I was late for class, kept spacing out and didn't have all my materials. Now I thought all my teachers wouldn't mind it much but it seems like most did. I don't think I had any SJ teachers last year but this year I do. I'm not sure if I'm a good student. I space out a...
