  1. [INFP] INFP's and counseling

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have been to a couple counselors I'm my life and enjoyed being able to talks about my never ending intuitive ideas and life. The problem is I've never felt like I made any personal progress when talking to a counselor. Are there any INFP's out there that have benefited from counseling or are...
  2. [Enneagram Type 4] 4w5s, 5w4s, and the schizoid personality

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    As many of us perhaps know, psychoanalysis too has a typology, although it is mostly based on psychopathology. The 'schizoid' personality is the one I relate to, most certainly. The psychoanalyst Nancy McWilliams has recently written an article on the structure of the schizoid personality which...
  3. [Enneagram Type 5] Effective Therapies for Depression

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    When it comes to treating depression, there are various types of therapies that counsellors/therapists offer - cognitive behaviour (cbt), psychoanalysis, etc. Are they any particular types that are more effective with the Type 5 personality? I've been having CBT but it's not really working for...
  4. [INTJ] Considering going back to therapy

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey everyone.. so I need some advice from people who've already been to a psychotherapist on an individual basis. I was in family therapy for a short while back when I was around 13 or 14, not long enough to make much progress though. I'm just kind of wondering what to expect...everything past...

  6. the enneagram types in therapy

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    have you been to therapy? by therapy, i mean long-term, depth psychotherapy - inclusive of psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and jungian therapies. the other kinds of therapy, i feel, do not bring out the personality in its depths. what is your type and what was your therapist's type...
  7. [INFJ] Do "The Counselors" respond to counselling?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've thought about having counselling/therapy a few times in the past but wondered if it'd be worth it? I have analysed myself so much over the years and I'm confident I know where most of my problems stem from. It's always good to get things off your chest but I typically hide my emotions. I...
  8. [INFJ] INFJs and therapy

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    So, just a random question - for all you INFJs who have ever done or tried therapy, how did it go? Did you find it helped at all? Were you able to connect with your therapist? I've had a lot of problems with therapy, and they seem to boil down to two things that are very INFJ-related. Either...
  9. Tips for an ENTP talking to a therapist

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Theres been an ongoing issue in my life oer the years and I've finally come to terms that I just can't sort it out myself and have decided to talk with a therapist. As an ENTP I've obviously analyzed and sifted through the issue enough to drive anyone crazy. So I've always had this fear that I...
  10. [ISFP] ISFPs and Depression

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I'm just wondering, how many of you (that care to reply) have suffered from or are suffering from depression? I know I am, but I'm wondering if it's a trait that we have, since we tend to be more emotional than some of the other personalities. It seems like in all the descriptions I've read of...
  11. Does therapy actually help?

    Advice Center
    As a person in my late teens who's been struggling with depression since the age of thirteen, and has never been placed on any medication or has sought out professional help, would therapy prove to be beneficial at this point? I have an appointment set up for next week, and basically the...
  12. Would/do you go to therapy?

    Member Polls
    How long? What kind of therapy? If you are going to therapy, do you trust your therapist? If you have in the past, did you trust your therapist? Have you ever had a bad experience with a therapist or in therapy?
  13. [INFP] INFPs and anger

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    do INFPs have serious issues with anger? in my teens, i would rarely get angry at people and when i did, i found it hard to express my anger at them if i didn't know them closely. but for those i was close to, when i got angry i could be very snappy and hurting, although it happened seldom...
  14. [INFP] INFP and ENFJ

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Have any INFPs here been in close relationships with ENFJs? This January, I started one of the most important and intimate relationships of my life - I entered therapy with a psychoanalytic therapist, who, most probably, is an ENFJ. Much of what I feel for her is interpreted as transference...
  15. the origins of type

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    How does one come to be the type one is? Is it a result of the experiences one has as a child? Or is one born with it - not meaning that type is in one's genes, but in an Eastern philosophical manner - according to which there is an existence before we came into this world, and when we come...
  16. [INFP] Are you the token Therapist/Philosopher?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have noticed that people within my sphere of influence (friends, family, co-workers) tend to come to me with their problems, looking for comfort, support, a listening ear, and serious conversation before they turn to anyone else, including their own families and spouses. I recieved a phone...
  17. [INFJ] Social Anxiety Disorder (treatments)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey everyone, This really isn't an INFJ thing. I was actually interested in hearing about the treatments and medications some of you who are dealing with any type of anxiety disorder and what the side effects are like. I'm actually going to be seeing a doctor some time this month or the next...
  18. Skating Like a Surfer...

    Blog
    I've carried skating in my veins since childhood. It all began by watching a classmate named Neil Hill maneuver effortlessly on ice skates in a way that combined grace with physical strength. I remember the rush I'd get as I fastened my laces with a hook-like gadget, while strangulating the...
  19. Living with a sociopath ENTJ roommate.

    General Psychology
    I think my good friend is a sociopath, but I'm not entirely sure. About a year ago, he was kicked out of his residence after an altercation involving a girl he hooked up with and a guy who tried to go for this same girl. Apparently they wanted him kicked out because they feared for their lives...
