How can I just pick one thing?

by Guest on Friday, January 5, 2018 - 1:12am

I'm a college student and have changed my major more times than I could count. I think I have an overall issue with just deciding to do "one" thing. And I understand that a degree doesn't define you and that plenty of people don't do work in the field of the degree that they pursued (mine is sociology - for now), but it's a deeper seeded issue. I don't want to be "glued down" to one job or one...

ENFP, INFP, INFJ Friendships

by FeralDreamer on Saturday, December 30, 2017 - 2:53pm

I am an INFP surrounded by INFJs and ENFPs everywhere but it seems no matter how hard I try to get them to understand or see anything from my point of view, they reject it and treat me like an imbecile. I don't know of any INFPs that I can befriend or what to do at all most of the time considering even the people that are supposed to be most similar to me don't understand. I think taking that...

They've been pushing me to get out in the world but also wanting me to stay close to home.

MBTI types and mental illness

Does anyone know how much (if at all) mental illness can affect the outcome of your personality test? I am an ENFP, but part of me wonders if my depression makes me feel more P than J, or that my anxiety can make me more I than E, etc. 

Maybe it's a moot point, but I have always wondered about this. 

Anyone have any insight on this? Or resources for more information?

Greetings and salutations,

I've been familiarizing myself with MBTI for over a year now, and I've consistently struggled with whether I am ENFP or INFP.

Nearly every time I take the test, I am ENFP. However, when interacting with other ENFPs or researching ENFP characters, I find myself under the uncomfortable difficulty that comes with trying to find one I can truly relate to. I...

So, I have a (personality quirk?), I'm not sure what to call it to be honest. I experience one emotion much more complexly than the others. I'm aware most people have a very (shallow?) depth to the pools of their own emotions in totality. And this is even more true for me in all cases but one. Anger. I personally think that everyone has two to three " levels" of each emotion, and of most of...

by Bard on Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 5:21pm

Worst fault or, if you prefer, trait most likely to cause problems.

I think, for me, it may be lack of self-confidence and mistrust of my inner voice. I have an INTJ friend who once said, "I always listen to myself." Not boasting, just objectively stating a fact, and puzzled that I don't do the same. Why wouldn't anyone? For my part I envy that quality so much--I so wish I had somehow...

Working hard to be kinder and help others until it became natural. When I first tested, I got INFP, and at the time it...
