  1. Temperament vs Personality

    General Psychology
    What I will say is subjective, I'm not an expert in psychology, it's a mean to open a debate. So there is this term: temperament, which is used to differentiate the genetic determination on our behaviour over the plasticity of the brain, which we can call personality. And it got me thinking...
  2. Easily-angered, temperamental people: Low or high Fi?

    Cognitive Functions
    I can see how a dominant Fi would mean the person is very in touch with their emotions and their feelings are very important to them and therefore feelings can be easily hurt. But also, an inferior Fi would mean the person is less in touch with their emotions and therefore less able to control...

  4. INTJ tend to be of the olfactory temperament, while INFJ are of visual temperament

    General Psychology
    I have noticed that INTJ people tend to be of the olfactory temperament, and INFJ tend to be of the visual temperament. This might have been caused by INTJ's use of Ni coupled with Te-Fi, while INFJ use Ni coupled with Fe-Ti. People of the visual temperament tend to be visionaries, while those...

  6. Who Tolerates Feelings Of Shame Better- Feelers Or Thinkers?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Who would you say, from experience, observation or just plain theoretical understanding/reasoning tolerates feelings of shame better? Who can dismiss these feelings easier and who might not care about doing shameful acts as much due to less of a priority on these after-feelings? Feelers or...

    I'm horrible with AI, but I saw the need to create a symbol that represents the connections between disability and temperament. I only used DiSC for ease and a witty pun (DiSCability)!!

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    Hey Guys! I had a fun chat with a few type-conscious people today, and one of the topics of discussion were types naturally prone to internal conflicts. The two that come to mind instantaneously are the male ESFJ and the female ESTJ. In case you're completely unfamiliar with the terminology...

This connection is strictly intuitive, but can be thought of as a way to describe the overall theme...
