tragedy

  1. Blog
    I was in college the third time around; I believe it was my third college "try", one I would finally give up for good. I had recently noticed a neighbor whose name I would later find out was A.J., struggling to maneuver a ramp, from his front door, using a standard walker with tennis balls...
  2. ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    1. You're really tough, and are handling this well. Frankly, being "strong" isn't always a compliment in our book. The brave, cheerful face we show you is just because we don't want YOU to suffer too. You don't know what goes on behind closed doors. Telling us we look strong makes us worry...
  3. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I actually feel like if I stay happy then something horribly tragic is going to happen to me... This seems to stem from many episodes in my life where something like this did happen... Any feelings and experiences with this?

  5. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers

  6. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    One thing that I've noticed about myself, which seems much more than the norm or coincidence, is that my closest friendships throughout the years seem to be with people who have suffered a tragedy in their lives. Several close friends of mine have lost a parent growing up. One of my best...
  7. Intro
    Hey! My name's Katherine and I am new to the forum, but I've had an interest in the MBTI for a while and whenever I did a search for anything Myers Briggs related I'd always come up with very interesting discussions from here. Just so you know I'm an INFP and a type 4 with the enneagrams... I...
  8. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Horace Walpole said, "Life is a tragedy for those who feel, but a comedy to those who think." I'm sure many of you have heard this quote before, and to a large extent, many will agree. But from the INTP standpoint, this quote confuses me a little bit. Being one of "The Thinkers" has been...
