  1. [INFP] Really struggling with my job

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi everyone. I've not been on here for a while but I find myself in need of some advice from fellow INFPs. I am not enjoying my job. At all. It probably isn't the best job for an INFP as it involves a lot of motivation, networking, and presenting. I thought it was something I would just get...
  2. [ENFP] dealing with bossy ENFJs at work

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi everyone! Pure, loving, embracing ENFP here. But ENFJs at work are turning me into a grumpy cat. Here's a sample of everyday behavior I can't stand anymore. Disrespectful tone of voice. Always talking? Not a problem. But why hitting the volume of a taking-off jumbo every single time they...

  4. [ENFP] Throwing Credit Around

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    One of the things my boss had asked me to improve on at work was to give others credit. Notice I didn't say "when it's due". See, if I did something big that was commended I always did take the credit if it was mostly me. I mean, well, that's the truth of it right? I also take responsibility...
  5. Could technology allow for a virtual economy that parallels a real world one?

    Science and Technology
    Imagine yourself grinding inside a virtual reality for currency to buy things with, while at the same time as you do it without knowing you are operating a machine that is 'getting things done'. Could this ever happen?
  6. [ESTP] Putting up with Feeling Females?

    ESTP Forum - The Doers
    I have now gotten myself into the second job where I must regularly work with feeling females. They gossip and speculate all day. It drives me nuts!! They know almost nothing about me because I have to bite my tongue all day. As I get more used to them, my filter will inevitably fail me, I know...
  7. Sharing to Connect.

    General Psychology
    I just (on a desperate whim) did a google search of "conventionally good looking and lonely". I usually don't find many gems (who does right? a gem is hard to find) in the search and end up disappointingly weeding through irrelevant results and dated forums. Short back story: I had plans for...

  9. [ENFP] Firing An Employee

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I got promoted at work to my first management position in my life where I will have employees under me whom it's my responsibility to hire and fire. I'm a little nervous about it to be honest. I've had my partners fired at work before by my boss (and I've approved) but it was awkward and...

  11. Introverts often face discrimination in the work place

    NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    I know that I am far from alone and that the system is cancer but having to put up with discrimination on the job is just pushing it too far. Today that is exactly what I experienced by a manager who has it out for me and a older coworker who decided to stab me in the back for a mistake that he...
  12. Uneasiness about a job

    Blog
    I have a set of musical skills that I've improved during my 4 years at college and internship. I'm certified to teach instrumental and general music grades K-12, though I wanted my internship to focus on grades 6-12. That's normally when instrumental music starts. So far I've been passed over...
  13. ... how do you work?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    This juicy tidbit of an idea just popped into my head out of nowhere, as I sit and watch stressed teenage students write national tests. :oh: If you look at your week at a glance, or your schedule (or lack there of) on a typical week, what does it look like? Factors to take in to...
  14. Your workspace. Orderly, chaotic, disaster area or pristine...?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm an ENFP with ADHD. To me, the idea of an orderly desk or workspace is unheard of. Don't get me wrong, I know how to clean and organize, and actually quite enjoy it. It's a hobby. The idea of spending a weekend organizing and rearranging classrooms (I'm a teacher) sounds like a dream come...
  15. Procrastination patterns and habits

    Advice Center
    Hi guys, How do you stop procrastination? Apart from a deadline? Even a deadline can't stop me now. Give me all the suggestions and sob stories you want. I won't mind. Have fun, - Juana
  16. Share your workplace horror stories

    Education & Career Talk
    Not sure if a thread like this exists, so I'll start one. What's the worst thing that's ever happened to you at work? Any stories worth sharing? Let's hear them, so we may grieve together, empathize together, and perhaps even laugh together. I'll post mine later on, after a few others share...
  17. Is Type About Who You Are Publically or Privately?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Ah the old private self, public self split. I’m sure everyone has experienced this, even the most extroverted kinds of people. So, what I’m wandering is, to know our true type, do we do a quantitative approach where “well more people see me in these traits therefore I must be that type” OR do we...
  18. Time Management: Which MBTI wastes the most time?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I would argue that I take the crown my aura alone could snatch that procrastinators tiara. I have attempted to make a poll so that you can vote for the most time wasting MBTI types. Anecdotes are welcome.
  19. [INTJ] How do you manage your time between work/studies, hobbies and chores?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Hey guys, I'm a lurker here, but I need some advice on managing my time. I'll quickly explain my situation. I'm gonna start working on my college thesis soon and I want to finish it as soon as possible. I recently stopped my half time job so I could give full focus to this, but since then I've...

    General Psychology
    Work and the Loneliness Epidemic https://hbr.org/cover-story/2017/09/work-and-the-loneliness-epidemic Thoughts, discussions? I've been out of the corporate world and been a small business owner for close to a decade now. Naturally, despite knowing I'm not alone in this, I have to fight...
