  1. Why are people so defensive when questioned?

    General Psychology
    OK bad title but I didn't know how to make it short. Here's the problem: I've always been one to question everything. Recently, I've become so interested to the point where I'd go on a forum for a game which I know very little about but have some preconceptions, and ask people why they play...
  2. E-I Powers Spiritual or Emotional Sphere through J-P; N-S (Data Gathering) and T-F

    Myers Briggs Forum
    A talk with Branden has sparked my interest in the connection between EJ, EP, IJ, and IP, with the emotional and spiritual. The E-I dichotomy powers the J-P. J is used for influencing emotions, while P is for maintaining the emotional atmosphere. I is associated with contraction, and E with...
  3. Long Distance Romance

    Sex and Relationships
    The Title says it all, this is a thread I am making for others to discuss whither a long distance relationship is as valid and strong as the usual vanilla romance that's been here since man first knew the meaning of deep caring. Just share some experiences, argue pros and cons on the subject...
  4. Thinkers; do feelers ever get on your nerves?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I have a good friendship with a few feelers. But sometimes, certain ones drive me up a wall. Sometimes they just berate me with statements such as; You just don't feel as deeply as I feel. You don't understand how this feels. I'm just too emotionally deep for you and the rest of the world. At...
  5. [ISTJ] Trying to understand an ISTJ

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    To begin, it's about trying to understand a particular ISTJ I know of. I'm an INTP and my sister is an ISTJ. I know we do have quite a few differences that I could understand in terms of making decisions, but sometimes there are habits of hers I don't quite get and hope that I could get some...
  6. [INTP] "Career" choice- How to reconcile curiosity with the times of specialisation?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    "Career" choice- How to reconcile curiosity with the times of specialisation? Hello, I'm a high school student and apparently, choices that I'll make soon might determine my whole life. In order not to regret too much, I keep analyzing what really suits me best, but haven't come to a final...
  7. [ENFJ] An INFP dares to tread on this ground.

    ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    So...*nervously walks in* I am an INFP (obviously :tongue:) and I have a very close friend who is an ENFJ. I care about him so much and I want to be the best for him that I can be, but I mostly can't tell how. I'm not posting this within one of the preexisting "Ask an ENFJ" threads because I'm...
  8. [Enneagram Type 5] Looking for answers and a deeper understanding

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I started this thread because I've noticed a lot of people with type 5 personality struggling with a multitude of things in life that i have gone through or still am. I also noticed people of other personalities wanting to understand 5's. Below are a few books that have helped me understand and...
  9. [INFP] I have been thinking about bullying and how there is "OK" bullying in our world.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have been thinking about bullying and how there is "OK" bullying in our world. So yeah i know there are ton's of people who say bullying is wrong but i ask you how many truely believe that? No from what i have seen it's more like bullying is wrong "sometimes" what do i mean well a few...
  10. The Positives & Negatives Thread

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I just had an idea, and would like to see if it works out. I thought this would be an effective way for people to learn including myself. Can everyone find a positive and negative to something, anything? This would help people understand similarities and differences of people, depending on...

  12. Articulate Your Potential.

    Blog
    When someone misunderstands something or someone, or themselves, they confuse others who don't understand this something, someone, or themselves. And by trying to make sense of it being right or wrong on both sides, and the one who desires to be understood cannot explain what they are...
  13. My Weakness Is Criticism.

    Blog
    There is no light in forcing revelations on people. They will learn on their own. So insults, anger, pushing these things in the presence of someone you are to love, only hurts them. Are you okay with this? Are you okay with inflicting before caring? Do you only see forcing revelations on...
  14. [Enneagram Type 4] Explaining 4s through metaphors

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    If you could put your experience as a four in a metaphor, how would you describe it? Could be the whole experience or just a certain aspect of a four. I've got a metaphor for trying to figure out who I am: -You wake up in a building with no way out and someone asks you to draw a picture of the...
  15. [INFJ] Carl Jung on Ni

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Found this on The Classification of Individuals Means Nothing | Psyphics - maybe someone else will like it too! I have no idea if it has been posted before, or several times before. I especially liked the part on 5:00 "What would be an example or the difference between an intuitive extrovert...
  16. Do people understand INFPs?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Any description of INFPs says we have high levels of empathy, and we can understand people very easily. But people find us hard to understand. Is this true? Or do infps just think they understand everyone else, the way others think they understand infps?
  17. How do people think?

    Cognitive Functions
    I have a hard time describing my thoughts. I see/hear a lot of people describing their thought as language. but It isn't language for me. Its something extremely hard to describe. like a different dimension where I test/decipher reality. I do use language. In my head I must first analyze my...
  18. [ISTJ] What are you passionate about and what do you think of INFPs?

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    Hello :) I have a six year old friendship with an ISTJ. I read about relations of activity and it sounded like us in a lot of ways. I also have a friendship with an ESTJ that is just as old, but I feel like there's actually much less conflict there. ESTJ and I would argue a lot, always over...
  19. [INFJ] NFs & Building People Up To Their Best

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    ​I know INFJs tend to believe they can build someone up to their best. Is this a reality or an ideal? Do most NFs feel this way? I've seen evidence of positively helping many people on my end. But how does one know they're doing it right? Which personality type are you focused on building up...
  20. [INFJ] No Love: Too Weird To Ever Find Love?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    It's a very INFJ thing, to feel alone and different; mysterious and misunderstood. That's us. Mystifying bunch. And it's normal for us, when we open those mouths of ours, to get a 2p wide eyed response. We're mystifying. Remember? And in a way, we're weird. We scare people. But has that ever...
