I think it's time we rolled up our socks, stepped down into the basement and pulled out that dusty box that our (in a lot of cases) marginally used Fe is hiding in.

We often don't show appreciation enough to each other or feel uncomfortable with not knowing how and when it is appropriate to do so.

So lets do it here!

It doesn't have to be an appreciation for a forum member, it can be anything. Anything at all that gives you some feeling of bliss in your life.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will go first and start by opening the flood gates:

- I appreciate Nova for doing a great moderation job.

- I appreciate everybody who replied/thanked my confession post yesterday. I was feeling very blue and that pepped me right up. Thanks, I can't even begin to say how much it helped.

- I appreciate DarkestHour and PseudoSenator for being such cutie pies I could eat them all up! NOM NOM NOM!!! They're wonderful friends and they make this old woman smile.

- I appreciate the friends in my life that verbally/mentally nurtured me through the storm of the last couple of months. They held me close and made me feel safe and secure, I don't think I would have the strength to do it without them. I appreciate the love and joy they have bought into my life that transcends the physical plain and exists only in the ether.

- I appreciate my MummaBears that are fiercely protective of me and guide me with love, wisdom, and provide me with direction.

- I appreciate EvanR for being my confidant and my rock when the anxiety takes hold and I can not breathe.

- I appreciate InvisibleJim for not being an encyclopedia dramatica. Your stability and mental fortitude is admirable. Thank you for coming to my aid on Tuesday night when I really needed you.

- I appreciate the man that makes my hot chocolate in the morning before I get to work. A wink and a smile always sets my day off on a good note.

- I appreciate Bionic for her passion. She makes me feel alive.

- I appreciate my parents and what an amazing job they have done to raise me.

- I appreciate Bethdeth and Snowguard for nurturing me when I have self doubts. For painfully analyzing the rubix cube that is life and helping me find clarity.

- I appreciate the bus driver that smiled at me when I looked anxious and told me 'everything will be okay'.

- I appreciate my Etsy extraordinaire partner in crime. You make me smile and set my Ni on fire!

I had an amazing cake lady...I did show her appreciation and she forgave all my aspie tastes and described her cakes down to the last ingredient for me....and called me darls. What a woman! I would listen to her daily problems as a matter of repayment for the mighty fine job she did. We made quite a team!

I'm off now to the vent thread to bitch about her replacement!

The thing I am most appreciative of is music. My library is filled with hours and hours of various genres, and music is one of the few things I've found that I only like more with time. There's a song for every mood: a soundtrack for my life. It's safe to say I would be lost and miserable without it.

I for one appreciate my life. I meet the most amazing people on a regualre basis. I am in debt to the people
I have in my life.

I would like to thank all the people on this forum that were nice to me because they showed character and morals.

I would also like to thank my physicist friend who is high up in academia for telling me :
we use models to allow others to understand more compelx issues. This doesn't mean to use something very complex to explain a simple fact.

I basically appreciate anyone who can carry themselves, be mature and not insult. :)

I appreciate my fellow INTJ bitches and the INTJ gentlemen who tolerate and encourage us.

Hemoglobin for her ability to be inclusive and comforting even in the depth of her own pain.
Bethdeth for her wisdom and rationality -- balm for a tormented Fi.
Mindbomb for conversations that turn from silly to serious in the space of a breath, for strength and courage when I had none.
Snowguard, Bionic, and others for listening to my rants.
Invisible Jim for brotherly concern and surprising compassion.
Expat, Filo, Isis, and others who have offered words of solidarity, comfort, humor, and encouragement.

In the offline world...
My two BFFs for unconditional love and, recently, immediately responding to urgent calls for chocolate, lattes, and dishing.
My parents for support in all ways and all things, even if it is misguided at times.
My daughter for her strength and maturity.

Aw, a well-intentioned thread is sinking to the bottom. Allow me to bump.

I appreciate this forum/its participants since I (as well as others here) can often use it as a support group/therapy session. This forum feels 'safe'. I have let out some rather personal and heavy stuff here, like my outburst last night.
My fellow INTJ's: I am still skeptical of this MBTI business, but I find solidarity and comfort with you people. Your post are often insightful, informative, comforting, and even entertaining. (btw, where is Nexus6?)

Internet, you are an escape from life.

IRL: My one and only best friend. Thank you for being so gracious, patient, and understanding toward me. I don't think that you have an idea how much you mean to me. You are the only person that I feel to have ever really tried to understand me (instead of telling me what is wrong/trying to "fix" me), and that made me feel worthwhile. You have taught me a lot about life and people, and you give me faith in humanity. You taught me how to socialise/get on in this world. Doing that took a lot of understanding and patience, I feel indebted to you.

I have no Fe and if I do, only certain people get it, so here goes bitches, my love letter...

I would like to show my appreciation to this forum, PersonalityCafe, for creating an environment that has so many train wrecks. These train wrecks take the form of members on these boards and my oh my, do a lot of them have serious mental issues. The train wrecks are like reading a massive editorial in the newspaper, pure fucking hilarity and full of so many red flags! The lack of logic, the psychotic outbursts, the emotional drivel they call "blogs," the vent thread, the angry german kids out there, the stupidity, the lack of a thinking and sometimes functioning brain, the attention whores, the narcissistic motherfuckers posting 354364 pictures of themselves because they really hide insecurities, everything you can possibly imagine and more, I appreciate. I love to just sit in my neat little comfy computer chair and watch all these trains colliding together, as I laugh my fucking ass off at the stupidity of it all. I don't know about some of you, but wow, this enneagram 5 is "lovin' it" like McDonalds. *waves frantically to you all, from the other side of the screen...o/~!!!!!*

Love,
Antiant
:laughing:

I would like to give a big almighty appreciation to Hemo for making this thread in the first place and secondly because she is absolutely everywhere catering for everyone and letting us all know we actually have feelings.

When I arrived at PerC 8 months ago I was only 8 months out of the most hideous relationship (the last in a few equally heinous mismatches). I was burnt out from years of study and trying to raise a family and co-exist with the most hideous of choices which burnt me out even more.

I initially came here to look at personality types to help me better understand the interactions between people so I could somehow make a rough formula for characters in a novel I started. I had known that I was INTJ for around 10 years already but didn't really look into it.

When I came here I was also really looking for some kind of validation for being the way that I am and to see whether any other INTJ women had any of the same outlooks or obstacles. What I found was that I was right....a lot of them do. The best thing is this: The fact that we are all so straightforward and that we share information on strategies. There seems to be very low levels of competitiveness to be anything other than ourselves. I have found pretty much what I was looking for in both aspects. The surprise was actually bonding with both INTJ males and females.

Thanks <3

--I want to say that I appreciate all the INTJ's for putting up with the little INxJ who likes to post on your forum when she looks at the INFJ forum and finds herself thinking that the F's are some effed up peeps who post about the shallowest, most ridiculous crap (sometimes, but not always.) You guys have brains, senses of humor, and I've never found the scientists here cold or heartless. You guys rock.
--I appreciate Hemo for her courage and strength. I read what you write and I see so much depth in your words, furthermore, it takes courage to put up a post like this and hope people don't think you're a sap. I think you might be the branches and sunlight, but you're never the sap (cuz that's my job.)
--I appreciate Chancey Rose for her fortitude in what she's going through. I walk that path, too, every night when I kiss my four-year-old goodnight and go away, I feel parts of my heart that were betrothed to him at birth leave my heart and stay with him until I return at dawn. It doesn't kill you, sister. It teaches you how much you really can give and one day wake up and discover you have been "whole" all along in the giving.
--I appreciate Invisible Jim for having a wicked sense of humor and the sexiest damn avatar I've ever seen. :)
--I appreciate Snowguard for being the first INTJ on the forum to inadvertently welcome my thoughts on your pages. I also appreciate your blunt nature... Too bad I can't seem to emulate it.
--I appreciate my female soulmate, Natalie, for being the only healthy ENFP I've ever met. You prove that there is a gold standard in every type, Chica!
--I appreciate Filo for being that standard in the INTJ for me. I also appreciate your courage and strength, the balance and depth of your mind, and every second we spend in conversation. I'm a person who finds herself deeply grateful in the experience of knowing you.
--I appreciate all the great unknown has endowed me with! Whether you call it by a name, chance, or fate I am constantly turning around in life only to be stunned with the incomprehensible depth of life's beauty, and I am grateful for it. Always.

'Nuff said, I think! Peace!

You're all pretty laid back. I really don't remember posters in particular.. but if you have a thanks from me somewhere down the line it means I appreciate you in some way shape or form.

The only people I can think of that I like as a person is the kid with the Gaara avatar and WildWinds. I haven't been around that long though..

Appreciation shall be almightily bestowed upon...

Hemoglobin! You definitely have the biggest heart around and you're a pillar of conversation and fun. You were my first friend here on PerC and welcomed me into a friendship which gave me so much pleasure this summer...and you also introduced me to the formidable lot of INTJs whose names will follow. You've told me before that you strongly valued my opinion of you, and I was honored to hear it. Let me say that I hold you in the highest regards... for your intelligence, and your personal strength (which also at times means you embrace weaknesses), and for your commitment to your goals. I have no doubt you'll continue to come into yourself and get the security you're looking for and deserve. You're unique interests and raunchy humor also make you great. Hope you're doing well.

Bethdeth! Never a moment where you're not a ready to throw a glomp my way, it's something I appreciate so much. I LOVE your sense of humor and your outlook on people and situations and your feistiness. You also don't take yourself too seriously, which speaks highly of you oh fairbethdeth. I appreciate and admire your loyalty, red hair, your wisdom and you very much deserve a new cake lady.

Mindbomb! For our range of conversations, your being laidback, and for the respect he's showed me.

Will come back to do more later...my brother is here to take back his laptop! Busted.
