  1. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I was watching this movie last night and one of the characters wasn’t as introspective and they just seemed so in tune with themselves. I noticed everyone gravitated towards this person because they probably were enamoured by that as well and I’ve met so many people throughout my life who are...
  2. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    What are the things in life that make you feel out of control? Does it relate to a particular area of life (e.g. job, finance, health, love/relationships, home environment)? That doesn't mean you lose control, it just means you'd be more likely to do self-comforting things (e.g. run, smoke...
  3. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I'm mostly venting about this. I can't pin down if these people are sensors, sensing feelers, people who are too young, or maybe people who have encountered only mild life struggles. It's probably a combination. I recently shared in a small group setting (think church stuff) that I struggled a...
  4. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Do you ever have the tendency to not know that you're feeling deep feelings for someone until you've inadvertently hurt them by saying there wasn't a connection (when there was. we talked every day and had been physical after a revelation of feelings), there was an emotional ending to your...
  5. General Psychology
    When men put themselves in a vulnerable position like approaching women and introducing themselves hoping to get a date, they also become more motivated to become better and stronger, even if the introduction fails or they failed to get the date. Likewise, women possibly feel better and more...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I love my wife, and we have a great relationship, but a lot of times the vulnerability and openness of physical intimacy overwhelms me. I find that I feel very exposed and, for lack of a better way of describing it, like a scared little boy. When this happens, I usually end up curling up with...
  7. General Psychology
    Hi everyone! I genuinly can't figure out why I'm not able to cry in front of people, not even the ones I'm closest to. I'm usually a very emotional driven person. So when I'm watching a movie or when I recieve some bad news and I'm alone in that moment, it comes very easy to me. But why, the...

    Here they come with rigid brimstone fingertips Ready to strike Ready to ignite the night With the gregarious, precarious gasoline can that is my insecure soul Lit with a short fuse A soft trigger A cancer in the conscience growing bigger and bigger My meringue morning skin so vulnerable...
  9. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I've been listening to Brene Brown's research/works on shame and vulnerability. I've recently had an epiphany that I have a very deep believe system of shame around relationships. I know most of us are intellectual types (NT), and that shame is mostly an emotional issue. Over the years of...
  10. Sex and Relationships
    I'm not, and the concept to me is almost like the concept of infinity. It's like I get, but I also can't possibly comprehend it. It's beyond me. When I'm love I just want to be near that person. I want to be close. Yeah rejection sucks and all, but to me the need to be near the one I love, to...
  11. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I'm thinking - on some levels, I'll never truly understand the depth of my feeling (solely in comparison to other types). But- I have to believe if INFPs do posses such intensity of feeling - alas, we really must be rather vulnerable creatures ( again relative to other types). Will others...
  12. Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    I'd say that for us 3s, showing your vulnerable side can be a risk. We might prefer to keep our focus on more practical matters like our career, personal growth, material possessions or whatever you do to to keep yourself focused and on the straight and narrow. But how do we deal when we're...
  13. Blog
    I remember the days Before I was thrown into the storm Before the winds wailed wildly When all was calm and warm I didn't feel lethargic Unable to move My skin bathed in magic With everything to prove When days felt rhythmic instead of dysthymic Imbued with colour and passion intrinsic...
  14. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I'm not sure if its just me or most of the other ENTPs, who keep their feelings to themselves, because once you share what you really feel you are vulnerable to the person.. According to me an ENTP would never want to be vulnerable to anyone or could be controlled by other people. We just like...
  15. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I'd like to talk about vulnerability. What does it mean to you, vulnerability? What situations might make you feel vulnerable? To be seen as weak in the eyes of others, or to be seen as frail, to be seen when raw or wounded, to cry openly in front of others, to be seen not as a warrior, not...
  16. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    There has been so much shame and guilt in my life. I have always had the thought your not good enough. I have always wanted happiness and joy but I closed up and shut down my emotions. For a feeler thats like taking your life away. I didn't know why I felt so unhappy and empty, so lost and...
