  2. Truth....... or not?

  3. What are you thinking about?

  4. Culture and Type

    Myers Briggs Forum
    One thing I love about this group is how international we are - while native English speaking members are most common, due to this being an English-language group, we have many from many other countries, and despite cultural differences (which I see as mostly superficial, if interesting), I do...
  5. Personality gone wrong because of upbringing? possibly ESTP

    General Psychology
    Hi:happy: I registered just to ask you this, I hope you can offer some advice. My personality type has been driving me crazy.:frustrating: What I am is complicated. I think I'm an ESTP, I've done the test many times with the answers that felt right. Still, in my life, with others, I don't...
  6. [INFP] What made you this way? [The nature vs nurture debate]

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi all, It's true people's MBTI preferences can change over time, but in my case they've been fairly stable for over 15 years. I feel like any changes I've experienced have been learned or developed as a result of necessity (work, relationships etc) but my actual preferences, my core self, has...
  7. [INFJ] Factors which influence self-esteem?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm really curious about the development of self-esteem and what influences it during childhood development. During my lifetime, I've met people who are very attractive but have low-self esteem because of certain experiences. Yet I've also met others who are nothing special in the looks...
  8. Dual parent and child: unhealthy?

    Cognitive Functions
    I guess in socionics you would call it your dual and semidual. I know that those people usually get along well with some exceptions but I see being raised by one problematic for both the parent and the child. First of all the child will be brought up trying to follow their parent's example and...
  9. [INFP] Did you ever forgive your parents?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Your parents sound so much like mine! ESTP mother, motivated, dominant powerful. INTJ father – traditional, distant and not too understanding. Both of them don't understand me; they're proud of me in many ways, but they never understand me, my feelings or desires. My mother is still upset with...
  10. E versus I: Does society separate us into social groups?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    We all know the stereotype that Extroverts are better with people and Introverts are awkward and shy. Many people go as far to say that introverts hate people, or that extroverts are more successful in life (which has been proven false numerous times). But where do these stereotypes come from...
  11. Enneatypes and Upbringing or significant trauma?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Maybe I'm just being cynical here, but doesn't it seem like most enneatypes are common among people with similar childhoods or traumas? I'm a 6, and I was raised by a narcissistic mother. The lack of stability, trust and commitment I had in my family relations seems to have led me to deeply...
  12. NT child - SF parent

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    There's a woman at work who is most definitely ESFx and she has a daughter of about 5 or 6. As mothers do, she shares little anecdotes of the various exchanges with the child, and from what she is telling me, the girl is showing all signs of being NT. In fact, I may go as far to say, of being...
