  1. Cognitive Functions
    When I become sick, I get stressed because I feel like I miss the opportunities. Same thing happens while I'm doing something I don't want. I'm also kinda forgetful about my sickness and I may sometimes use self-destructive matters. While I'm sick, I may become aggressive and angry. And finally...
  2. What's my Enneagram type?
    The One Where I Read Myself into a Tizzy Reading time: <5 mins. Thanks for checking in and please forgive the title; I probably look like a proper dunderhead now. Still, I know there's a lot of other similar typing threads so I'll try to be more succinct (that is, 'try' being the key word)...
  3. What's my personality type?
    English is not my native language so I ask for some patience if I commit misspellings. i have studied the MBTI and the 8 cognitive functions also I have done practically all the tests that can be found on the internet receiving in some INFJs and in other ENFPs, even ENTP or ENTJ (even so, what...
  4. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Hi again, I've been really interested to know if any type 5s have been through any type of trauma. If so, how did you process it? For example, did you process by going into a more unhealthy 5 or into stressed 7? Did you obsess over what happened and try to figure it out, or did you numb out?
  5. Cognitive Functions
    I've read general summaries of healthy/unhealthy versions of the 16 types and have my own speculations about how those can be demonstrated by specific behaviors in real life, but I'm curious to see how other people have experienced healthy versions of any of the 16 types-- specifically, what...
  6. Cognitive Functions
    I have a handful of friends and acquaintances that I actually know well enough, and all of them are xxFJs or xxFPs (at least the ones who know their MBTI, the ones who don't I can definitely see the Fe and/or Fi in them). Thus, I believe I have a good understanding of what healthy and unhealthy...
  7. Cognitive Functions
    How can you tell whether someone is using an inferior function or an unhealthy version of their dominant/auxiliary function? For example, if someone is emotionally unstable and consistently avoiding certain things in life in order to preserve their state of well-being and keep a happy emotional...
  8. ESTP Forum - The Doers
    Hey guys, I'm new so bear with me and let me know if anything is not okay. I'm ENFP so I hope it's okay to be posting here. I need your advice. What do you think happens when an ESTP is unhealthy? Not ill necessarily, just letting the negative aspects of their personality shine through. How do...
  9. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hi everyone! This might get really dark and/or personal, so be warned So I've been thinking about victim complexes lately, since I'm trying to come to terms with my own demons. Everywhere I look, people with victim complexes/identities are ALWAYS displayed in a negative light, and...
  10. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    Is my ENFJ boyfriend manipulating my emotions? Hello! This is my first post and I was really hoping I could get some advice for my relationship. I feel uncomfortable talking about this with people I know personally. (Also I’m sorry for my crappy writing skills lol) So my boyfriend is an...
  11. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So does anybody else have this problem? It would be lovely to read about it. As example, something will happen that annoys me. It's stupid to be annoyed about however, so I ignore it - but it happens more often, and I start to get pissed off more each time. That, again, makes me believe my...
  12. Advice Center
    Before getting into this, I'm aware that my best chance is talking things through with a therapist, but unfortunately I can't afford any sessions at the moment. I've realised that my thought process has become increasingly unhealthy since I've lost my support system. In less than a week I've...
  13. What's my personality type?
    0. Is there anything that may affect the way you answer the questions? For example, a stressful time, mental illness, medications, special life circumstances (I know you've already answered some of this in your OP). Other useful information includes sex, age, and current state of mind...
  14. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    My friend has just shown all signs of someone who is unhealthy. The sudden switch from becoming this passive narcissistic, manipulative person who's (sub)consciously feeding themselves mentally and physically. How am I able to play a role in caring for them? I know it's near impossible and...
  15. Intro
    Hi this is my first personality cafe post ever and it would be REALLY great if I could get people's opinions on this. I'm a INFP 4w3 sx/s? whose still in high school. Both me and many of my friends show signs of being in a grip, or being in the 7-9 rang of levels of development - especially me...
  16. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have decided to give this INFJ individual one last chance before I completely remove him from my life. Before I begin I'd like to prefix everything by saying that I find most INFJs to be very agreeable people with a pleasant disposition. This has nothing to do with healthy INFJs. I would also...
  17. Myers Briggs Forum
    Apologies for the recent influx of started threads by me. My friend and I, let's call her Anna, were discussing a mutual high school friend of ours, let's call him John, bringing to light some stuff I suspected. This is someone who I, at first glance, would say has that typical tert-Fe charm...
  18. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi everyone! So I've been into personality types for about a year now, but I can't seem to type this...''friend'' of mine (it's complicated). I'd like to know if this sounds like an unhealthy ENFP to you guys or something entirely different. She did the test and got ENFP, since I know It can be...
  19. Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    After seeing Michael Clayton with G. Clooney and Ms Swinton her character struck me as a horribly gone-wrong-all-the-way 3w4. Swinton - Karen Crowder was a legal counsel for a mighty corporation that screwed up; one scene shows her preparing for an interview at the firm, the process itself was...
