2020.10.24 14:54 tj4466 Healthy INTJ or not?

Hey everyone,
I am still (1 year later) trying to work out an INTJ guy I had a 'thing' with. So he claims he's an INTJ and at times I wondered if he was an ISTJ but think that INTJ is probably correct.
I didn't even realise he was an introvert when we met, it was actually one of the best first dates I've ever been on as we spoke about random stuff and it never got boring, it only cringed me out when he said I had nice eyes and stuff and I panicked. Anyway, I absolutely love psychology and researched a lot of random areas and he shows so many traits of being a machiavellian....
Now obviously I know I'm feeling > thinking and this will affect my thoughts on this but I've tried looking at this from a thinking perspective too. Oh I should also mention that he suffers from Bipolar and this can impact the analysis.
But yeah so, I wanted to ask basically:
Would an INTJ message lots of people in an array of manners - overly charming, extremely rude, arrogant - to get what they want? E.g this guy started an argument in messages, he also used a girl to get info for jobs and then bragged about it to some guys who works at that firm who he doesn't know, he also blames girls for being unfaithful and claims this is the reason he ended it but it's actually just because he didn't want to pursue anything? So essentially many lies and arrogance?
I understand everyone can lie but I read that INTJs tend to have their morals in check but struggle to communicate their emotions? However this guy has shown multiple forms of manipulation and his dad even said "you need to grow up and stop using your bipolar as an excuse when you treat people badly".
He also got extremely offended when I mentioned he could be a psychopath (it was a joke) and refused to speak to me but actually months later he sent me Mbti and then it started up again.
I researched everything around both our types (I'm an enfp but contrary to some people's beliefs, I'm extremely independent, love my own space and thoughts and am not cringy and dumb. Infact sometimes I found this INTJ to be quite narrow minded and I'd have to help him with maths etc all the time as this is my forté). The thing that confused me is that a lot of INTJs tend to research into this I feel? Maybe as they enjoy feeling understood and it helps their analysis of themselves and find ways to improve and work to their strength. Anyway, he didn't seem to do that and seemed completely unreflective of himself.
Another thing is that when we first slept together he went straight into uni the next day and told everyone on his rugby team? This seems bizarre for an INTJ but I don't want to make assumptions (sorry if I've made assumptions in this post, I understand no two intjs are the same)
There may be more I've forgotten so may need to add to this but thanks in advance for any replies !

2020.10.22 16:07 blissfulyonder Thought I was INFJ for 8 years...now questioning if I'm actually INFP. Help type me please! :)

So I thought I was INFJ for 8 years, but now I've been questioning if I'm actually INFP for the past two months. I wrote this up, and I'd really appreciate any insight into what my type really is.
Note: I am a 4w5 sp/sx, and this might influence my answers. I'm very sure on my Enneagram type.
• How old are you? What's your gender? Give us a general description of yourself.
I am 18 years old and female! I’m a first year Arts student at University where I’m double majoring in Psychology and English Literature.
• Is there a medical diagnosis that may impact your mental stability somehow?
Never been diagnosed officially due to my parents believing mental health is for people who need to be put in a psych ward, but I’ve been dealing with chronic depression and an anxiety disorder for the past 2 years intensely. I also struggle with insomnia.
• Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it?
Mom is ISTJ, and my dad is ISFJ. My dad worked abroad, and was absent for most of my childhood. My mom was very strict; your classic Asian tiger parent. I grew up always going to multiple classes doing activities I didn’t care for in order to appease her, being yelled at and physically abused, and essentially living under constant fear & feeling pretty awful about myself for a seven year old child. I had no freedom, no individuality, and no sense of real self when my mom was present in the room. I dealt with it by shutting down mentally and retreating to my own world. I became very focused on living for the future, and always believing that if I just preserved through, stayed kind, and didn’t let her abuse get to me, that my life would turn out okay & I would finally be able to break free and become my own person. I also became overly empathetic and quite sensitive at a young age as a result; always feeling way too connected with my emotions & the emotions of others.
• If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed?
If I had the internet, I would feel quite happy! I spend a lot of time alone either way; I’m really introverted and have a very limited social bar that essentially is spent on 3 people maximum at a time. Definitely would end the time feeling refreshed, since I’d spend most of it reflecting on my feelings, opinions, other people’s feelings, daydreaming, and just being in my own visionary world.
• What kinds of activities do you prefer? Do you like, and are you good at sports? Do you enjoy any other outdoor or indoor activities?
My interests include writing (especially poetry), reading novels, personality psychology, and listening to music. Music is a really important part of my identity and who I am; I strongly resonate with various artists that have helped me throughout my lifetime. These artists include people such as Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, and Stevie Nicks. I’m not great at sports, but I did enjoy figure skating as a child. I thought the costumes were beautiful & I liked to imagine that I was a successful Olympic figure skater during classes.
• How curious are you? Do you have more ideas than you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about - is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?
I’m a very curious person, and I tend to spend a lot of time pondering on my own identity, feelings, and thoughts. This curiosity especially extends to people in my life that I’m close to, I love understanding human nature and the human experience overall. I think it’s beautiful, especially during one’s ugly moments. I also think it’s really important to understand yourself and those around you; a life that’s emotionally rich is one that I think is at its most fulfilling.
I definitely have more ideas then I can execute; I have a lot of interests that tend to die out quickly, but the ones that resonate with me on a profound emotional level stay with me for YEARS. My ideas are VERY conceptual. They tend to come from an inner compass within me that has an abstract sense of the life I want to live out one day; one that is uniquely my own and comes from an individual sense of bliss & experience.
• Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be?
Nope, unless it’s something oriented around emotions. I’m not great at leadership positions that are task-driven and devoid of some kind of deep humanistic connection. Or at least, I don’t enjoy them. My leadership style is very laissez-faire; as long as everyone is getting along and feeling happy doing what they’re doing, I could care less.
• Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particularly artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer.
I love art. Growing up, I was taught to shove my true artistic self down my throat, but in the past few months I’ve discovered that I am actually a very artistically motivated and fulfilled individual. My art comes through writing; I love poetry. From reading to writing it, it fuels me to write about feelings, experiences, past relationships...I feel like I’m connecting a part of my soul to the great human condition, that maybe one day someone will read what I write and resonate with it on a healing level.
• What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?
Past: Okay, this is a hard one for me. I grew up with parents that were both overly fueled by their poor past experiences (unhealthy Dom Si dad & mom). As a result, I denied how much the past subconsciously affected me for years. However, I do tend to hold onto and treasure past moments, especially ones that have emotionally impacted my view on the future & my own direction. I have a lot of fond nostalgia for exes, old teachers, songs I used to love...but especially teachers & mentor figures that have shaped me. I love them dearly. I do tend to "let go" of past mistakes consciously and I commit them again. This pattern ends up affecting my behaviour severely in negative ways. I get used to a certain "mentality" or "self-image" of myself that is often flat out depressing, and I keep living it out in a state of withdrawn melancholy.
Present: Not the best at the present. I do enjoy doing things “in the moment” however a lot. I have this kind of subconscious...almost raw and primal energy within me that tends to randomly come out. I love wild experiences where you don’t have to think, you just “do”. I'm garbage at all this though, even though I wish I wasn't. I’m never focused on the present moment. Mostly, I’m focused on the future. I suck shit at doing anything where you need to be physically grounded.
Future: I love the future. Honestly, the future is my biggest saviour of grace in my life. I love envisioning the future and all the possibilities that come with it. I have a lot of opinions and insights on the human condition, how people seem to work, how they think, feel, dream, process grief and happiness and every emotion imaginable. The future and all the hope it holds is kind of a safety blanket for me; I always turn to imagining a future where I’ve achieved what I wanted, the lifestyle that I’ve been craving for years...and it keeps me afloat and makes me feel connected with who I am & what I believe.
• Do you need logical consistency in your life?
Hm...yes and no. I think I like when the people in my life are logically consistent and have theories and conclusions cemented in logical analysis; every single friend or person I’ve dated has had Ti in either their Dom or Aux function except one (and they still had Ti technically in their function slot.) Most of my closest friends and boyfriends have been strong Ti users, and I find it to be a really attractive function. I’ve never been close with a Te user really, but I think that’s because I struggle a lot with the Te function. However, I don’t think I need to be too logically consistent as an individual in order to be sane.
• Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that?
No; I’ve been controlled my whole life and it’s fucking horrible. Damages you and fucks you up so bad, even if it’s indirectly done. I would never do that to someone, and I’d never forgive myself if I realized one day that I did.
• What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally?
To live a life as true and organic to who I really am; to uplift people and help them find their own insights, inspiration, and meaning. I want to create poetry, I want to help people through their problems, I want to find love, and I want to flourish as an individual. I want my moral insights and my feelings and my hope for humanity to actually be marked onto the world, and for it to actually resonate with someone and guide them through their trials.
• What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?
My fears are never being loved, living a life that isn’t my own, not living a life true to my morals and hope for humanity, and living a life without creative and individual meaning. I have a lot of insights and beliefs that, if anyone would like to hear them, I’d love to share in hopes that it’d give them comfort and hope too. Overly blunt people, people who don’t value emotions, and liars all make me really uncomfortable. I can tell when people are lying 99% of the time, and it drives me fucking crazy. I hate feeling belittled, being used for my empathy, and feeling like people don’t see me for who I really am, because they’re too busy trying to make their image of me into someone that fits their own personal narrative. If the real me doesn’t fit into someone’s narrative, I don’t want a role in it at all.
• Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why?
I used to do this when I was younger in group settings (but this is just because I don’t really care about how I come off in groups at all, and therefore give basically no thought to my presence), but not anymore. I’ve never done this though in individual conversation, unless a really terrible conflict was going to arise by me disagreeing, and it would have to be on something extremely petty and insignificant to what I believe in for me to just go along with it.
What do the "highs" in your life look like?
I am extremely empathetic, hopeful, and connected with my inner compass. I'm able to fully accept all my emotions, and instead of dwelling in them and letting them control me to a manic depressive state, I'm instead able to be more clear-headed and take myself less seriously. I can let go of past griefs, and I don't let people's past views, opinions, and takes on me affect how I choose to view my future self, which is something I really struggle with. I'm also writing a lot, and fully feeling in my creative self. I'm putting myself out there, and letting my heart be open to new possibilities in love and in my life.
• What do the "lows" in your life look like?
My empathy burns out, and I become extremely emotionally unstable. I get really melancholic and withdraw from society completely. I talk to nobody at all, I have no energy to even muster up thoughts and words from my mouth, and I just shut down. I tend to introject people's negative beliefs on me, and they end up becoming parts of my personality that are very emotionally disconnected from who I actually am. "Lows" in my life tend to include a lot of that, since I take other people's takes on me too seriously and I end up believing that I need to portray those beliefs, or else I will fail them and have absolutely no worth as a human being. I close myself off emotionally, and just get really cold, critical, and unmotivated. I also fuck my health over by either never sleeping, or getting way too dependent on caffeine, or having a horrible diet. I neglect all of my body's needs, and I essentially allow myself to just soak in my own pity and self-hatred.

2020.10.20 15:53 silly2044 Personality Types and People who are Most Compatible with My Values and the Types of People I Most Dislike

My personality type is INFJ. I want to be surrounded by friends who are similar to me in terms of their core values, interests, personality type and life experiences. In terms of friendship and romantic partners, I'm most attracted to people who have mid - high openness to experience; these are people who value art and culture over tradition and security. I greatly appreciate the aesthetics of art, architecture, music and natural scenery. I prefer art, creativity, imagination and non-traditional people and non-traditional ideas over following overly boring and overly restrictive traditional ideas or people. Although I appreciate many traditional ideas and traditional people. High openness to experience is related to greater ability for imagination, higher levels of curiosity, greater levels of creativity, greater ability for innovative thinking, greater appreciation for abstract concepts, greater appreciation for art or subjective reality, greater tolerance, and higher appreciation for beauty and aesthetics. I prefer people who are socially, culturally and politically moderate - liberal because those are my values and preferences; I also prefer people who are agreeable (kind, cooperative, easy-going), Type B personalities, and INFJ, ENFJ, INFP, ENFP or INTJ, ISTJ and ESFJ personalities. I dislike people whose personality types make them short-tempered, dominant, domineering, low in empathy, aggressive, demanding, unemotional or too focused on logic while devaluing emotions, too impractical, too emotional with less ability for logic or reasoning, hostile, mean-spirited, emotionally insensitive, overly conservative, overly competitive, low openness to experience, and people who are low in appreciation for beauty or aesthetics in art, architecture, music, and natural scenery. I hate people who are heavily involved in stupid and boring drinking or drug culture, overly disagreeable, intolerant, unimaginative, uncreative, overly traditional, overly conventional, and too status quo-oriented. All of the abovementioned traits are very unattractive and off-putting to me. I don't want to befriend or date people with these traits.

2020.10.15 13:13 TiamatHydralisk Relationship Advice: Would Like To Suggestions On How to Approach Difficult Relationship Discussion Topic With Girlfriend Who Displays Multiple BPD Traits

Hello peoples,
I'm here to ask for some linguistic advice from people. I need to have a difficult conversation with my girlfriend of 6 or 7 years (I legitimately lost count) and while I've learned how to speak to her over that time, I still make a lot of mistakes, ESPECIALLY when I'm speaking verbally and not through text. Any advice you all could give would be much appreciated. I'll label each section of what I want to say for ease of reference for anyone willing to help out.
Background: I (25 male) met my girlfriend (24 female) online a little over 7 years ago. We became fast friends, spoke over video chat, voice chat, texted, and whatnot and have done so since. Our relationship is long distance (Spans the full width of the USA) but we have seen each other in person almost annually since 2016, possibly 2017. This year was the first year we were unable to visit. She and I are in almost constant contact when we aren't working via voice or video call and when that's not possible we text (sporadically on my part). We are also both religious, if that makes a difference (same beliefs). For those of you who know what MBTI is, I am an ISTJ, and my girlfriend is either an fairly unhealthy INFP. Over the last 3 or so years, our relationship has been growing more and more strained. I thought it was due to personality incompatibilities but I'm now starting to doubt that's the case. Recently, my girlfriend was trying to figure out why her mental and emotional health has been deteriorating and suggested to me a while ago (After doing her own research) that she could have BPD. I shrugged it off initially but now, in desperation to try and figure out how to salvage whats left of our relationship, I've done my own research, and listed to a bunch of videos on the topic. I'm not making any assumptions about whether or not she has it but I can confidently say she has many of the primary listed traits. Both of us are unable to really afford to find her a therapist (and she doesn't seem to want to go see one even when I offered to cover the cost) so I'm operating under the assumption that she just has the traits. Granted, all of this could be the result of living in a family where "if you breathe the wrong air molecule in front of a parent, you get screamed at", and this is a MILD exaggeration. I've heard fights get started for things almost that petty. All of that being said, my emotional and mental endurance is wearing thing. I don't function well around intense emotion and our relationship for the last 3 years has been nothing but extreme fear on her part, explosive anger, incessant complaining, and serious downs/depression on her part. I can't keep playing the part the "rant wall" or target of her emotional outbursts because she's pissed about something someone else did to her. I learned early on that I can't freely express negative emotions around her and I've told her repeatedly in the past that she's gonna have to find a way to sort out "important" issues from the non important issues. Unfortunately, she always falls right back to the same old cycle of "complain, get angry, rant about said thing, calm down (at my bidding), complain some more about the same thing, etc." infinitely until I threaten to end the call. I also wrote her a four or five page letter expressing how I felt at the beginning of the year, detailing my fatigue and several conditions I had for her if our relationship was going to continue. She fought me hard on the conditions before finally agreeing, although I get the feeling she half-assed one of the three, and didn't complete the last one. I chose not to ride her on completing is as, in my opinion, that would defeat the purpose. (As a retrospective though while writing further down) My girlfriend has literally no friends. The only people that consistently talk to her are me, and another dude who likes her (she has absolutely no interest in him whatsoever as she's complained about him enough in the past). I'm just about the only person in her life that treats her like a person. Everyone else has just ghosted her or gone so far as to backstab her. I've decided I'm taking my stand. My family (who have all met my girlfriend) have told me that I've become a much colder, unsympathetic person in the last couple years and that they think she's the cause of it. I have my doubts as I have other points of my life but I am slowly starting to believe they may be right. Regardless, I love this woman to absolute death and back but I'm starting to despise our relationship. I don't want to feel this way but I'm finding myself helpless in that regard the more my endurance runs down.
Preface: Now for the meat of what I want to get at. I'd like to write out the core points I want to discuss with her here, then get feedback on whether or not I'm being too brutal/insensitive or saying things that she could interpret wildly different from what I actually meant. If you are inclined to assist, I'm open to any other suggestions you may have beyond the two I just mentioned.
Point 1: Relationship Strain I'm basically going to tell her without holding back how I feel about her and "us"/our relationship. Keep in mind there's not a power in this world besides God Himself that will make me stop loving her as much as I do but I am painfully aware that love alone will not protect a relationship. A. Our relationship from my side sucks. On average, 25% of the time I spend with her makes me happy, while the other 75% is absolute misery where I hate being around her. B. When she has problems, all she does is complain in circles about stuff and then get pissy with me when I try to shut her down before she can loop again. I also get incredibly frustrated because when she actually wants solutions, everything i suggest that is feasible, difficult, but feasible, she ALWAYS has reasons that my solutions could never work. TO make things worse, most of the time, as she's told me, she doesn't ant solutions, just a person to let her rant and listen to her go off about her issues. There is only so much energy I can devote, being a deep introvert, listening to someone complain for well over an hour on one or more topics without stop. C. I'm so stressed I'm literally at the point of wondering "what if I was in a different relationship, would I be happier? Would it suck as much as this does? D. I realized that my happiness is independent of her romantic presence in my life. I don't need her to be my girlfriend/spouse to be happy. I'm independent and can be happy alone.
Point 2: Our Future About a year or two ago, we had the long term plans to eventually get married, my family knew and has been in support of us since then but now I can't see myself marrying her in her current state. She's too emotionally volatile and I have no clue how I'm supposed to live with a person that "doesn't have an identity" (this is a more minor point, but she brings it up so often, I'm starting to get antsy over it). Setting marriage aside, just from a boyfriend girlfriend perspective, she's not even stable enough to be any kind of romantic relationship let alone get married. As such, I want to tell her marriage is no longer on the forefront of my mind and very likely won't be for a long time, assuming our relationship survives its current predicament. Helping her find a way to heal and get through her current struggles is my current goal. I've started to see her as less and less a girlfriend/Significant Other and more as a very dear friend. I'm not even sure if the love for I have is even romantic anymore and turn platonic.
Point 3: What Has To Change At the moment, my focus has shifted from protecting her mental health to taking care of mine. I've deteriorated enough that I'm taking control of how our dynamic will work for the foreseeable future. Whether or not we continue as romantic partners will depend on whether or not she unconditionally agrees to the following requirements I set on how we interact with each other. I'm done being her emotional punching bag/vent machine. 1. The complaining stops. If something negative or something she doesn't like happens that could be considered trivial, she needs to keep it to herself unless I ask about it. IF I do ask, she needs to summarize what happened in one or two sentences. 2. When something significantly negative happens her life, I want to hear about it so I can be up to date but I refuse to listen to hour+ long rants about how much life sucks because of it. I'll give her 15 minutes to vent and rant and sob to me but after that time limit, I'm checking out. If she wants to continue to be upset, she can do so alone until she gets it out of her system. When she calms down, she can call me back. However, if she starts talking about it again, I'll give her a couple warnings before hanging up and letting her take the rest of the day to process her feelings on the issue. 3. We will treat each other with more respect, be slower to get angry because a comment/statement had a trigger word or made use feel attacked. We will stop the other person and say "I'm not sure what you said came across the right way, I felt like Y after you said X" rather than hold grudges for DAYS because someone said something triggering and the offended party didn't try to clear the air. We've known each other for 7 fucking years. If we're still assuming the other person is TRYING to offend us, we're never going to make it. 4. If she doesn't want a solution to a problem, don't ask "what am I supposed to.../how am I supposed to.../I don't know what to...". 5. If she really wants to get better, she needs to do research, find several therapists she thinks she might like and get me their rates. Then we can consider splitting the cost of the meetings. 6. She needs to find some way to get a grip on her all consuming fear. She lives life like the next step she takes is going to be a landmine and I can't deal with that anymore.
Point 4: What I Will Do In Return I want her to get better and I want this relationship to work out. However, I am also prepared to end it if I must. I won't stick around for someone who won't work to help themselves, which it feels like she doesn't care to do. In return, I will make an effort to work on the things I know bother her (Texting her when I'm out and about so she knows I'm not dead, doing exactly what I say I will or amending it if unexpected things crop up, and paying more attention to her when she speaks instead of zoning out like I do when she starts complaining, etc.) If things don't pull together after a set time period I will not be disclosing, I'm going to have to pull the plug on our romantic relationship. Could we get back together in the future if she can solve her problems? Possibly. Would I want to? Maybe. it all depends on the progress made.
That's the gist of what I wanna say to her. I'm still cogitating on it and may come up with additional stuff. Any advice or suggestions you may have are appreciated. If you have questions about me or need some more details, let me know and I'll update this post as necessary.
Thanks in advance!

2020.10.12 04:21 invisaligns How to get an ISTJ to talk about their feelings?

An INTJ (F21) here dating an ISTJ (M22). I'm someone who struggles with emotional expression so I get it, but I would say that I understand emotions more than my SO. When I'm having a bad day I tell him. When I'm feeling tired or stressed I'll tell him. He encourages me to hit him up when I'm stressed out or anxious and he'll be here to support. It's such a nice and loving gesture and I want to do the same for him. But it seems like he always default to "I'm good" when I know he's not actually feeling good. Whenever he begins to complain, he'll stop himself and say "meh, can't complain" or "I need some stress to thrive." I never want to pry or push, but it would be nice if he chooses to come to me. How do I make him more comfortable with just sharing how he really feels? I know this is difficult or ISTJs especially, so how do I make it known that this is a safe space to talk about feelings?
Feel free to share your own advice and experiences! Thanks!

2020.10.11 03:35 waterooster Do you journal? Why or why not? Method of choice?

INFJ here 👋
I'm curious if regular journaling is something SJ types do, or if it's something you want to do, but don't.
If you don't, why not? If you do, what's your method (journal, digital, art, etc.)? If you do, what do you journal about?
Context: asking because of a personal project, but realize I've been designing for only INFJs in mind. I want to diversify.
Also I love the user guide pinned to the top here! Dated an ISTJ and it made me laugh in my heart 😂

2020.10.08 10:45 FelyneBean I adore you

Hello!
I’m an INFP (F) and I just wanted this subreddit to know how much I adore the ISTP type. Even tho my fav type is ISTJ lol.
As someone who is imaginative, silly, who overthinks or gets worried easily, etc. — I really appreciate this type which seems to be polar opposite of my own.
I’m trying my best to not take things so personal, I’m trying to learn how to stop overthinking most interactions I have.
ISTPs are pretty inspiring to me, I keep you guys in mind when trying to better myself.
To be honest, it really sucks needing validation that any friend I have or partner I date doesn’t secretly dislike me or want to get rid of me.
That is why I’m trying to work on trust and
I need to understand that not everyone sees the relationship I have with them as deep or important as I see it.
It’s easier said than done :\ that’s for sure
Anyway...
Thanks for reading this and keep being you.
With much respect and admiration,
An INFP

2020.10.08 05:49 lord_of_the_memes98 Dating and Relationships

So I've [22F] been typed as an IXTJ, leaning towards ISTJ. Is there any particular reason as to why I am not at all interested in dating and pursuing intimate relationships with other people? Currently in third year engineering [mostly all male], I find that dating and meeting people is such a burden and not worth my time. My classmates are all meeting new people and dating [online] and asking me why haven't I done so? I just prefer to direct all my time and energy to friends, family and studies but somehow my friends think its strange for a 22 year old girl to not want to pursue a romantic interest?? Have never been in a relationship btw

Content Warning: This chapter is Safe For Work, but contains common media tropes that is often found in fanfiction that some may find inappropriate.
A/N: Greetings, fellow members of mbtifanfiction! The first part of this fic was cross-posted to this sub (a while ago), which didn't let me edit much, so this time, I made this a separate post to allow for editing.
This might be a bit confusing without reading the first chapter, so please do so first. Once again, it's a parody of fanfiction in general, while also parodying MBTI sterotypes. This is NOT meant to be taken seriously, and is not meant to offend anyone or any type. I must, however, warn you; there will be cringe; possibly more than in the first part. I don't mean this lightly. And another reminder that certain parts of the story may be disturbing. Viewer discretion advised.

Chapter 2: INFJ x ENTP
The humid afternoon air blew against INFJ’s hair as she stepped out of the school building. The day passed like every other day did. She woke up, went to all her classes, and discussed her work for the Conveniently Timed Festival-Concert-Thing with ESTJ. Yet, something was… off that day. INFJ could feel it. She would sometimes feel like she was being watched, but every time she’d turn to look, she would remember that it was pointless to do so with inferior Se.
Well, there were a couple of changes. INFP had stopped dyeing her hair brown. Knowing her, INFJ didn’t know if she should be happy or worried. Sure, INFP and ISTJ weren’t walking home together after school that day, but INFJ had already used her Ni to sense intuit that they weren’t friends anymore, and that INFP was now dating someone. While she could figure out what was happening around her when it’s convenient to the plot, she still couldn’t seem to figure out what was bothering her. As the afternoon sun dropped behind a cloud, INFJ felt a chill down her spine. Almost as if-
“WE’RE GOING TO THE ORANGE JUICE PLACE!” ENFP jumped out from behind INFJ.
“ENFP! You nearly gave me a heart attack!” INFJ said, brushing a loose strand of her naturally silver hair behind her ear.
“Sorry about that! I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED! It’s INTP’s birthday today, so ENTJ’s hosting a party at The Orange Juice Place! She invited a couple of people including- you guessed it- me!!! I mean, she didn’t exactly invite me, per se, but INTJ declined saying she was “too busy with the Conveniently Timed Festival-Concert-Thing”, so I managed to do a bit of bargaining until she let me attend the party! Nothing much, I just had to promise to not speak the entire time, “for INTP’s sake”! Which is totally fine because I am such an introvert, am I right?! If anything, it’s a total loss for INTP, because who wouldn’t want to listen to me talk for 4 hours straight?!! I asked ENTJ, if I could invite one more person… I admit that she was a bit hesitant at first, but she agreed to it when I told her who it was! cAN YOU GUesS WHO It waS???!!!!!!” ENFP asked, breaking into a dance in the middle of the sidewalk.
“….me?” INFJ asked.
Ding ding! Correct!!!” ENFP grinned, pointing finger guns at INFJ.
“I don’t know if parties are really my thi-“
“Come on! It’s just one party! You’re in high school; one night of drinking orange juice won’t hurt!”
Truthfully speaking, INFJ did not want to go to The Orange Juice Place. For one, she seemed to be one of the only characters in this story, who cared about the fact that they were high school students, and that they had a huge Math test the very next day. And secondly, INFJ was uncomfortable with the fact that this plan was made last minute. However, ENFP was her childhood friend. He was the only one who even came close to understanding her, and she didn’t want him to be upset. So instead, she used her Fe to pretend that she was excited.
“Sounds like fun!” INFJ lied, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
***
“You’re late,” ENTJ said without looking up from her phone.
“Hey, we didn’t know INTP would actually be here on time!” ISTP said, causing ENTJ to actually look up at them.
“You invited more people?” INTP asked, taking his eyes off of his laptop for the first time since he’d arrived.
INFJ knew it was going to be a long night the moment she saw the three of them walk through the door. To be fair, it hadn’t been the best evening she’d had. INTP himself had spent the whole time messaging INTJ about the Festival-Concert Thing and talking to his anime girlfriend, whom he had brought along on his laptop. INFJ talked to ENTJ about the work she had to do for the Festival-Concert Thing, until ENFP found a loophole in ENTJ’s demand, and started texting her about a new idea he had about space cats. You’re not really paying attention to this part. Kek. Frozen banana geese. INFJ had secretly hoped that they were the only people who’d come, but good luck was pretty rare for her. But she certainly hadn’t expected them.
“Yeah, I thought I’d invite them along. They told me I couldn’t be the most interesting person here if I they came along too, so I wanted to prove them wrong,” ENTP smirked, ruffling his hair.
ENTP. Of course. He was the only one who’d have no problem inviting the cool kids over to INTP’s birthday party, if you could even call it that. ENTP had messy black hair and eyes that were the colour of melted chocolate chips. ENTP would always walk around school looking for people to debate with about politics and bad puns. Everyone else thought ENTP was cool. But INFJ, being extremely smart and observant, knew that looks weren’t a good representation of someone’s character. He was the first one to start throwing his milk carton at ISTJ, after they had a disagreement over whether or not pizza could be considered a sandwich. He’d gotten detention (idk, my school never had them) multiple times for making the feeler substitute teachers cry.
As the others decided to start a game of Truth or Dare, ENFP excused himself to go to the washroom. INFJ looked around. The Orange Juice place had a lot of customers that night. For a place that sold only orange juice, it was very popular. Somebody could go missing, and you’d never know. Suddenly she noticed a door.
Finally, she thought, If I could just go behind that door and slam it behind me…
“Hey INFJ!”
INFJ looked up. It was ENTP.
“Are you INFP?” he asked, his dark brown eyes gleamed in the dim light.
“No, I’m INFJ. INFP is my-“
“Cause you’re a FiNe SiTe,” ENTP gave a lopsided smile.
INFJ knew what was happening. She could see the others pretending not to pay attention to them. Was ESTP recording this on her phone? Suddenly, INFJ snapped.
“You’re a horrible person, ENTP,” INFJ bluntly replied, “I’m done playing this game.”
ENTP looked taken aback by what she’d said. ISTP burst into laughter from behind them, and ESTP and INTP could be heard cackling along. As ENTP walked back to the others, INFJ sighed. She’d tried all she could to get along with the others, but she just wanted to leave now. She finished the rest of her orange juice and waited for ENFP to come back.
What’s taking her so long? she wondered.
INFJ was so tired, she almost didn’t notice all the commotion that was happening.
“For the last time! We don’t. Serve. Iced. Pumpkin. Spice. Latte!” ENTJ yelled at the top of her lungs.
“That is so unfair! I demand to speak to the manager!” ESFJ raised her voice even higher.
“I AM THE MANAGER!” ENTJ practically screeched back.
“I WANT TO SPEAK TO THE OTHER MANAGER!”
“THE OTHER MANAGER ISN’T HERE TODAY!”
“Then arrange a video call so I can talk to him at once!” ESFJ said, nearly lunging for INTP’s laptop.
“Stay away from my waifu!” INTP hissed as he tried to pull the laptop away from her.
Unfortunately, ESFJ’s sensing won and she managed to close the Doki Doki Literature Club window, causing INTP to curl up into a ball on the floor, devoid of any expression. ESFJ spent the next 10 minutes screaming over ENFJ, who was calmly trying to explain over a video call that she couldn’t keep coming to The Orange Juice Place to yell at him for breaking up with her and-
Wait a minute…
ENFJ didn’t look very calm. INFJ didn’t notice it at first, but he definitely looked pretty scared, now that she paid more attention. Shaky palms, nervous smile…
How could I not have noticed that? I’m always able to tell how everyone is feeling! Something is wrong…
INFJ felt sick. She felt… dizzy? Something was wrong. Where was ENFP? He still hadn’t come back? Or had he? She could feel her vision blur as everything around her turned into a blurry dissonant cacophony of… Was that ENTJ with a Nerf gun?
***
INFJ groaned. Why did her head hurt so much? She opened her eyes, only to find herself in a dark room. She tried to rub her eyes, but realized that her hands and legs were tied to a chair. Panicking, she looked at her surroundings. She seemed to be in a basement, empty except for herself. And her chair. Is it her chair if it belongs to her kidnapper? There was a closed door, but in her current predicament, it would be pretty hard to slam. Suddenly, it all came back to her.
The Orange Juice Place! I was waiting for ENFP to come back. What happened to him? Where am I? What’s going on…
Her thoughts were broken by the sound of footsteps drawing closer. She held her breath as the door swung open.
“Looks like you’re finally awake,” ENTP said, his chocolate-brown orbs fixed on INFJ.
“W-where am I?” INFJ asked, “Why am I here? What’s happening?! Where’s-”
“Do you know how cute you look when you’re asleep?” ENTP sighed, tucking a strand of INFJ’s hair behind her ear, “Although I admit that it does get boring after 18 hours…”
18 hours!? INFJ thought*, So much for that Math test...*
“When I was young, I had a super sad childhood that’s gonna make the readers sympathize with me and fantasize about wanting to “fix” me. All my life, I’ve been empty and cold,” ENTP said,” But from the moment I first laid eyes on you, all those years ago, something felt… different. That day in elementary school, when you told me off for calling your sister a “poopy-head”, I knew you were mine. You’re the only one who can make me feel whole again…”
ENTP’s gorgeous dark hair almost draped over his eyes, as INFJ looked at him in surprise. Had he always looked this hot? But suddenly, his expression turned dark.
“But that pesky ENFP… He just wouldn’t leave you alone. So, I got rid of him,” an edgy a dark grin crept up on ENTP’s face.
“I couldn’t stand the thought of you talking to anyone besides me. So, I slipped a couple of blueberries into your drink when you weren’t looking, and by the time Karen stopped terrorizing everyone at the Orange Juice Place, I had ESTP and ISTP bring you here without anyone noticing. All I had to do was say that they left after you and ENFP did, because they were tired of hanging out with INTP, and ENTJ actually bought it! I then had INTP text your family that you were gonna live with me, your boyfriend, from now on. I’m sure your sad feeler sisters would understand.”
“Wait… what?!” INFJ panicked.
“Well, I would’ve sent the text myself, if I hadn’t broken my phone yesterday. I know it sounds hard to believe, but I actually lost an argument online. In that moment of weakness, I snapped, and I threw my phone at the-”
“No, I mean, are you going to keep me here forever? Please let me go… I won’t call the cops on you or anything!” INFJ pleaded.
“I’m not letting you off that chair until I’m sure that you’ll never leave me. Now, I’m gonna go back upstairs. Don’t even think about escaping,” ENTP said, totally not foreshadowing what’s about to happen next.
Brushing his messy dark hair away from his dreamy eyes, ENTP went back upstairs, leaving the door open. INFJ struggled against the ropes, until she could free herself. This was possible because ENTP was an epic intuitive and didn’t notice the loose ropes, and not because I’m a lazy writer. INFJ slowly crept upstairs, hoping ENTP wouldn’t notice her. The stairs lead up to what seems to be the dining room. INFJ could hear ENTP arguing with someone at the front door about… alarm clocks? Looks like INFJ wouldn’t be able to slam it any time soon. She looked around for any potential weapons to defend herself. She glanced at the dining table. A NiFe? Nah, too risky. Suddenly, she remembered something- her mobile phone! It was in her pocket the whole time, and she had forgotten about it. She quickly dialed ENTJ’s number. Thankfully, she picked up.
“INFJ? I can’t talk now, I have to pick out the nuclear codes for when I take ov-“
“ENTJ, I’m really sorry, but help!!! ENTP’s holding me hostage at his house!!!!” INFJ almost yelled into the phone.
“INFJ, is everything alright? Why weren’t you at school today?” ENTJ asked.
“ENTP kidnapped me at the party yesterday! I’m really sorry for bothering you like this, but could you please ge-“
INFJ froze, as ENTP grabbed the phone from her.
“Hey, there ENTJ! Sorry to bother you! INFJ drank way too much OJ last night. You guys really should switch to organic orange juice. I’m pretty sure you were browsing Reddit last night after you were done attacking ESFJ with that Nerf gun,” ENTP sounded as casual as ever.
“ENTP, why aren’t you guys at school?” ENTJ asked.
“Well, uh, we were both sick after, uh, drinking too much orange juice. So, I asked INFJ if I could borrow her phone to ask you to ask INTJ to stop asking about the batteries and, umm, well, we started dating!” ENTP explained.
There was a long silence, followed by ENTJ bursting into laughter.
“Classic ENTP! Despite your explanation making no sense whatsoever, I’m gonna believe you over INFJ, despite INFJ seemingly being a good friend of mine. You guys would definitely Now I have to go.” ENTJ said as she hung up the phone.
ENTP’s cheerful demeanor turned dark as he turned towards INFJ.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to do that! Please don’t hurt me!” INFJ begged.
“Alexa,” ENTP said in a stone cold voice, “Play ‘It’s Everyday Bro’ by Jake Paul.”
INFJ writhed in pain from the cringe as Jake Paul’s voice blasted across the room. As she screamed, something in her broke.
Voice: omg heyy I’m a voice in ur head!!! Well, technically, I’m ur conscience…
INFJ: Oh no, are we resorting to this format now? Isn’t this level of cringe a bit too far?
Voice: listen, ENTP is dangerous and you’re developing Stockholm Syndrome! You have to get out of there!
INFJ: What? No, I’m not! I just think ENTP is cute and irrationally think that I could save him from his trauma, despite being kidnapped and tortured by him.
Voice: yeah… that’s Stockholm syndrome.
INFJ: Oh no…
Once ENTP stopped the music, he brushed his hand through INFJ’s hair.
“Look at what you made me do! I don’t like hurting you, INFJ, but you left me with no choice. Do you have any idea how hard it is to be an abusive character the readers have to think is hot?” ENTP said in a softer voice, caressing her cheek (idk, I use Reddit).
“I’m sorry,” INFJ said, as she let ENTP carry her back downstairs to the basement.
“Don’t worry; I won’t hurt you like that ever again. At least, not until the next time the story needs more angst. And now that we’ll be together forever, there’s only one thing left to do,” ENTP flashed an unusually large grin.
What’s ENTP talking about? INFJ wondered. It couldn’t be about letting her use the bathroom after 18 hours: this is fanfiction! A glass of water would’ve been nice, but INFJ was selfless and didn’t care about herself enough to consider any of these possibilities.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for years!” ENTP said excitedly, tying INFJ back up to the chair in the basement.
“What are you talking about?” INFJ asked, “Please don’t hur-”
“Now, let’s assume that, hypothetically, an IxFP were to waste their time staring at a flower,” ENTP looked (a now terrified) INFJ dead in the eye, “Would it be a fair assessment to say that they have low Se? Or do they have low low Ne?”
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A/N 2: Electric Boogaloo: Sorry for all the cringe. Also, I would like to add that Jake Paul's music and debates about the cognitive function are objectively the worst things INFJ would have to worry about with ENTP. I would really appreciate any criticism., and I might remove this (or rewrite parts of the story) if people find it too uncomfortable. Thank you for suffering through this cringe!

2020.10.03 16:46 sosyncd New podcast: Personality Love Lab by So Syncd

Hi! Hope everyone is well. It’s Jess (INFP) and Lou (ESFJ) here again from the So Syncd personality type dating app. Things have been going well with the app - we are growing quickly and over 150 couples have now found each other through So Syncd! We very much appreciate the feedback that some of you have shared and we are working hard on some big changes.
We wanted to flag our new podcast called Personality Love Lab. We noticed that there are a lot of resources about the theory behind Myers-Briggs but not many examples of how it plays out in real life. Personality Love Lab is a series of interviews with real couples of different personality types.
In the most recent episode, we interviewed Andy McNab (ex-special forces hero, functioning psychopath and best-selling author) and his wife, Lily. He’s an ISTP and she’s an ESFJ. The episode before is about a couple who met on So Syncd. We are yet to interview a couple where one half is an ISTJ, but we're very keen to!
We are just starting to record the second season and we are looking for couples who are interested in being interviewed. It’s just audio and we can change your names if you’d prefer. The couples we’ve interviewed so far have loved it. We even had someone cry because he was so touched by what his partner was saying (an ISTP of all the personality types!). Please email us at [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) if you are interested in taking part :-).
Anyway, we hope you find it interesting and would appreciate any feedback! It's available on Spotify, Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts. Here are the links:

2020.10.02 22:58 letsdrinkgreentea ISTJ/ESTJ women: what do you look for on dates/potential partners?

I'm an INFP man that goes on quite a bit of dates. For the most part the women I meet are Feeling types (with either N or P in there somewhere) and things go great. Every once in a while I'll go on a date with an ISTJ or ESTJ woman and it goes pretty poorly lol.
Obviously there are some personality clashes - I like to keep things fun and casual, while they treat it like a formal interview (they'll ask me questions without emotion, tell me about how they like to manage other people at their work - they are usually project manages at work or they'll tell me about their track record in academics, etc.), by the end of the date when I'm used to getting a big hug, or kiss I'll get a handshake and one girl even hit my shoulder and said "take care bud" LOL !!!!
But I'm just curious, what expectations do ISTJ's / ESTJ's have on dates and what would be their ideal partner??
Also as a side note: do ISTJ's/ESTJ women like when their partner makes decisions or do they like to make decisions for the other person??

2020.09.28 03:10 LVPenguin Dropping off a small gift

If you as an ISTJ were stuck in a 14 day quarantine and someone dropped off a small gift on your doorstep just to brighten your day or let you know they were thinking of you would that be ok with you?
Would you appreciate it or think it was stalkerish?
What if it was the girl you’d been dating for a few months?
What if it was really just something small?
What if your girl baked you cookies and dropped those off for you. Would you appreciate that?

2020.09.27 19:04 Chicagocheesepie INTP(male) dating ISTJ(female)

Like many others on this sub, I've come to ask for dating advice. I'm an INTP male currently dating an ISTJ female, we are both in our 20's.
It's become clear to me how differently we think; she is very focused on people and events from the past, and I always have some abstract concept or idea running through my mind.
It has effectively come to a situation where I know her entire life story, whilst she knows minimally about me. She's clearly in love with me, and I am in love with her, but the fact that she barely knows me compared to how well I know her makes me feel a bit lonely in her company.
If you ISTJ's have any advice for me I would greatly appreciate it

2020.09.22 23:53 Kelzie95 INFJ dating an ISTJ - I need advice

I’m a INFJ female (25) dating an ISTJ male (26). At first we got along extremely well. There was urgency, reassurance and obvious love. Now, things have sort of changed and very soon too.
I don’t really know how to explain our issues on a social platform (more like I don’t want to) but with obvious reasons, compromising is becoming extremely difficult.
Are ISTJs tit for tat and\or completely set in your ways. Because that’s what I’m essentially dealing with. Honestly, any advice on how to compromise with an ISTJ would be wonderful.
PS: I am aware of my personality type as I live it everyday, so no offence to ISTJs. I understand no one is perfect :).

2020.09.21 22:45 cmnrdt 28 [M4F] Buffalo/WNY - Looking for a Player 2 in Life

First off, thank you for taking the time to read my post, and if you end up liking what you see, I'm guaranteed to respond to your message, so don't be shy!
Hello there, my name is Connor, and as you might be able to guess, I'm looking for a partner of the female persuasion. I've been living in this area for a while now, and all of my friends are finding/dating/marrying people who make them happy while I stay depressingly single. I've posted here before and maintain a presence on several dating apps, but nothing concrete and genuine has come along in quite a while. Maybe you'll break the trend?
A little about myself: I'm a huge nerd, especially when it comes to video games. Final Fantasy XIV, Pokemon, and Overwatch are but a few of my current favorites but I play all sorts of stuff, mostly PC and Nintendo. I'm also a fan of cartoons/anime, sci-fi (particularly Doctor Who), movies, Dungeons and Dragons, etc. I'm fond of animals, especially cats and dogs, the fluffier the better. 420 friendly, though it's not a huge deal for me. I'm pretty introverted and homebody-ish, so I'd much prefer staying in and playing games to things like concerts or bars - but I'm always down for hanging out with friends. Physically speaking, I'm about average; 5'10", not skinny or fat, brown haieyes, and I wear glasses. My Myers-Briggs type is ISTJ and it's pretty damn spot on.
Also, fair warning, I'm very physically affectionate. Kissing, hugging, hand-holding, and especially cuddling. You will never be left wanting for close physical contact.
But enough about me, here's a quick rundown of the kinds of things I'd appreciate in a potential match: Having similar interests is a must, and strictly speaking it doesn't have to be gaming, but nerdiness in general is attractive to me. I prefer curvier body types (to a certain extent) but I also don't mind skinny girls. Really, as long as you take care of yourself, I'll have few complaints. Intelligence is a huge turn-on; I want someone I can have deep, intellectual conversations with; someone who puts effort into messages that have proper punctuation and grammar. Finally, local people only. I'm not interested in anything long-distance.
If you're still reading this, then I'm probably doing something right! I won't take up any more of your time, so if most of this appeals to you, please reach out. I'm tired of spending each day without someone to love and be loved by. Help me delete this post as fast as possible.

2020.09.21 02:37 personalitytests123 MBTI Types and HEXACO Results

Hello everybody, I recently posted in the subreddits for all of the different MBTI types asking if people would be willing to take the HEXACO test and share their results. I have started analyzing the data and thought I would share some of the things I have learned so far. I should clarify that I am not quite done analyzing everything yet the way I would like to, so I will be updating this post as time goes on. Also, if you haven't already taken the test and posted your results you could take the test at https://hexaco.org/hexaco-online. After you take the test please post your numerical results (not the graphs) along with your MBTI type below.
Anyways, so for some background on the HEXACO model, the HEXACO model is essentially the same as The Big Five except that it adds a new trait for honesty-humility. I learned about the HEXACO model by reading about it and taking it online. I have also read a book by the researchers who developed the model titled "The H Factor of Personality: Why Some People are Manipulative, Self-Entitled, Materialistic, and Exploitive—And Why It Matters for Everyone", where they explore the new honesty-humility factor.
Both the HEXACO and The Big Five are trait personality theories, and they were developed by asking people to rate themselves on adjectives such "cheerfulness" or "outgoingness". They then looked to see what adjectives were correlated together, and combined these adjectives into a group. The reason they did this is that some adjectives describe essentially the same thing (or they are opposites so they are on the same scale). For example, cheerfulness and liveliness are basically the same. Eventually, the founders of The Big Five found that they were able to consolidate adjectives into five basic traits which are: extraversion, neuroticism, openness, consciousness, and agreeableness.
The HEXACO was developed later when a pair of researchers performed this same process with eastern, Asian languages and discovered that their adjectives actually clustered into six categories, rather than just five. They then re-did this analysis in western cultures and they again discovered these same six factors. The first five factors were the same as those in The Big Five, but the new sixth factor they discovered was honesty-humility. The reason why honesty-humility wasn't discovered originally with the original Big Five research is that that research was performed earlier than the HEXACO before computers and higher processing power was available, so they had to limit themselves to fewer adjectives in their research.
In summary, the HEXACO model measures the level's of people's humility-honesty (H), emotionality (E, note that this is referred to as neuroticism in The Big Five), extraversion (X), agreeableness (A), consciousness (C), and openness (O). The H factor is pretty straightforward in that people who are high in it tend to be honest, sincere, and modest, whereas people who are low in the H factor tend to lie more, are more narcissistic, and are more materialistic. Emotionality measures your levels of anxiety, fearfulness, emotional dependence on others, and sentimentality. Extraversion measures not only how sociable you are, but also your overall levels of positive emotions such as liveliness. Agreeableness measures how willing you are to forgive other people, as well as how easy you are to get along with overall. Consciousness measures how strong your work ethic is and how much you plan out your life. I should also note that people with low levels of consciousness typically have poorer impulse control. Lastly, openness to experience measures how willing you are to explore new ideas such as intellectual ideas, and also how creativity you are.
Overall, when I last analyzed the date there were a total of 60 respondents. So far 38 intuitives and 22 sensors have responded, so be aware that the all respondents results are skewed toward intuitives at the moment. With that being said here are some of the things I have found so far by applying a t-test analysis to a variety of different traits:
I intend to do further analysis by looking at each individual type. However, at the time I performed my most recent analysis of the data no ESTJs, ENTJs, or ESFPs had responded. Additionally, a number of other types only have a few respondents, so the more people that would be willing to take the test so that I could analyze their test results the better.
Update: In general, based on this data and from other articles I have read looking at correlations between MBTI type and The Big Five (which as already mentioned is related to the HEXACO), it seems like the overall trend is that extraverts score than introverts on extraversion (gasp! what a shocker!), intuitives score higher on openness to experience than sensors, feelers score higher on agreeableness and emotionality than thinkers, and judgers score higher than perceivers on consciousness. These same trends hold for all of the 16 types, so for example if you were an INTJ that would you mean probably score lower than average on extraversion, higher than average on openness, lower than average on agreeableness and emotionality, and higher than average on consciousness. Interestingly, the honesty-humility trait is uncorrelated to MBTI type so knowing your own or another person's MBTI type doesn't tell you anything about how honest or humble you or the other person are. This debunks some stereotypes such as the one that ISTJs are supposedly very honest and never lie, because on average ISTJs score the same on honesty-humility as the other 15 MBTI types.
TLDR: I am looking at how HEXACO test results correlate to MBTI type. The raw data and analysis can be found at the following link: Data Analysis.xlsx Also, if you haven't taken the test yet, please take the test at https://hexaco.org/, so that I can have more data for the analysis. Make sure to post your numerical results though, because I can't analyze data from the graphs. You can get the numerical results if you scroll down the results page and click on the "obtain my results in pdf format" icon.

2020.09.20 01:01 invisaligns What's your opinion on texting in a relationship?

Hello! I'm (F21) an INxJ (my F and T are 50/50) dating an (M22) ISTJ for a couple months now. It's been the most healthiest relationship I've been in thus far. We vibe well in person and have amazing intellectual and emotional deep talks. Being both introverts we respect each others need for space.
Despite this, when we're apart, I find the biggest difference between us is texting style. I'm someone who is an avid texter. I enjoy texting and I like to feel connected to someone when we're apart. My ISTJ boyfriend, however, is the complete opposite. He replies promptly and consistently, but the replies are typically very short and dry: like an "okay!," "indeed," "aw," "that's good." I find it kills conversation. On text I'm typically an upbeat person so I'm usually the one who will chit chat more and keep it going, but on my bad days I get pretty irritated at those responses. I know I shouldn't take it personally, because I know he continues to tell me goodnight/goodmorning every day and calls me every night so I know he cares, but man those responses though.
I'm pretty sure it's a personality thing. So to fellow ISTJs, what's your opinion on texting or your experiences with an SO with different texting styles? How did you compromise? What compromises do you suggest? Thanks!

  • Charmspeak: Aine has charmspeak, which is most effective when she uses it to spread rumors. When she does so, people are generally inclined to believe her, though the more outlandish the rumor, the less effective her powers are. Her charmspeak does still function in other situations, but it is weaker and people are more likely to resist its effects.

Backstory:

Aine Caoimhe McCracken was born to an Irish politician named Ciaran McCracken, who met the goddess of fame after a hotly contested and widely publicized Dail by-election in 2003. She was raised in the town of Cavan, with frequent trips into Dublin to see her father, who did his best to balance his responsibilities as a legislator with his responsibility to his daughter. Aine grew into a driven, but emotionally distant girl, demanding as much of herself as she did everyone else around her. When she was thirteen, she was claimed by her mother and sent to the Wolf House, and from there she joined the Legion, where she has been for the past three years.

Now:

Aine sat on the porch of the Second Cohort barracks, sharpening her falcata and humming softly to herself as she worked. Her eyes were focused on her sword, but she was listening to what was going on around her, so if anyone approached her, she’d likely hear them.

2020.09.13 07:48 k-rox INFP seeking advice on ISTJ friendship dilemma

ISTJs of Reddit, I’m seeking your advice and feedback on my friendship dilemma...
I (45/F) am an INFP and my best friend (52/M) is an ISTJ. We work for the same company and have had a great mutually supportive and fun friendship over the past three years. We’d text every day and talk or hang out in person (until COVID) several days each week. We’ve supported one another when we each faced serious health issues, accompanying one another to medical appointments and procedures. I helped him work through some emotional pain from a past relationship; he helped me with my confidence when I took on a high-level job and was doubting myself. We were so close that people often assumed that we were dating, but we’ve only ever been very close friends.
However, a few months ago my ISTJ bestie started avoiding me. He stopped returning my calls and responded to texts infrequently. I was patient for a couple of weeks as I knew he was super focused on and stressed about a DIY home improvement project that wasn’t going well and every time I did manage to talk to him he’d apologize and explain that he was just really busy with work and overwhelmed with this project. But after weeks of feeling like I was being increasingly ghosted, I very directly called him on it by text (since he wouldn’t answer my calls) and told him it didn’t seem like we were friends anymore and asked why. He admitted he’d been avoiding me because he now had a girlfriend and he was “afraid to tell me” so he dealt with it by avoiding me. The girl he is now in a relationship with also works for the same company and she just left a 20-year relationship.
I told him that I was confused and hurt that he didn’t feel like he could tell me about his relationship and instead chose to hide it from me by avoiding me. That doing so damaged the mutual trust and respect that our friendship was built on. He proceeded to tell me that he didn’t have time for family or friends right now or even time to do things he loves (running, riding his motorcycle, sketching) because his relationship is requiring “financial, time and emotional commitments” that are new to him. I replied that it didn’t seem he was capable of reconciling and reconnecting with me right now, so I needed to say goodbye until he was. He responded, “if/when I find some space you’ll be the first to know.” That was two months ago and I haven’t heard from him since.
A few things I would love your ISTJ insight on:
(1) My bestie usually is very direct and blunt, even about uncomfortable topics, which I’ve always appreciated and admired. Why couldn’t he tell me he was in a relationship?
(2) Do you believe our friendship is salvageable? Or that he’ll ever reach out to me again. And if so, what can I do to best support the repair of our friendship?
(3) I’m very concerned that the new relationship he’s in is unhealthy given she just left a 20-year relationship that she hasn't had time to process, his statement about not having time for family, friends, or things he loves, as well as his statement about financial commitments for her (he doesn’t have a lot of spare cash). Is this normal behavior for an ISTJ in the early stages of a relationship? And if he and I do start talking again, how can I best help and support him? I don’t want to undermine his relationship – if he loves her, I want him to be happy. But I worry he is losing himself in the process and is going to get hurt in the end.
(4) I would welcome anything else you’d like to comment on.
Thank you for taking the time to read and respond!

2020.09.12 18:11 Nutmeg_2002 If MBTI had Fanfiction - pt 2/4 (INFJ x ENTP)

Part 1
Content Warning: This chapter is Safe For Work, but contains common media tropes that are often found in fanfiction that some may find inappropriate.
A/N: Greetings, fellow citizens of UnderworldMBTI! It's been over a month since I posted the first part. I was scared I might post something too cringy.
This might be a bit confusing without reading the first chapter, so please do so first. Once again, it's a parody of fanfiction in general, while also parodying MBTI sterotypes. This is NOT meant to be taken seriously, and is not meant to offend anyone or any type. I must, however, warn you; there will be cringe; possibly more than in the first part. I don't mean this lightly. And another reminder that certain parts of the story may be disturbing. Viewer discretion advised.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter 2: INFJ x ENTP
The humid afternoon air blew against INFJ’s hair as she stepped out of the school building. The day passed like every other day did. She woke up, went to all her classes, and discussed her work for the Conveniently Timed Festival-Concert-Thing with ESTJ. Yet, something was… off that day. INFJ could feel it. She would sometimes feel like she was being watched, but every time she’d turn to look, she would remember that it was pointless to do so with inferior Se.
Well, there were a couple of changes. INFP had stopped dyeing her hair brown. Knowing her, INFJ didn’t know if she should be happy or worried. Sure, INFP and ISTJ weren’t walking home together after school that day, but INFJ had already used her Ni to sense intuit that they weren’t friends anymore, and that INFP was now dating someone. While she could figure out what was happening around her when it’s convenient to the plot, she still couldn’t seem to figure out what was bothering her. As the afternoon sun dropped behind a cloud, INFJ felt a chill down her spine. Almost as if-
“WE’RE GOING TO THE ORANGE JUICE PLACE!” ENFP jumped out from behind INFJ.
“ENFP! You nearly gave me a heart attack!” INFJ said, brushing a loose strand of her naturally silver hair behind her ear.
“Sorry about that! I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED! It’s INTP’s birthday today, so ENTJ’s hosting a party at The Orange Juice Place! She invited a couple of people including- you guessed it- me!!! I mean, she didn’t exactly invite me, per se, but INTJ declined saying she was “too busy with the Conveniently Timed Festival-Concert-Thing”, so I managed to do a bit of bargaining until she let me attend the party! Nothing much, I just had to promise to not speak the entire time, “for INTP’s sake”! Which is totally fine because I am such an introvert, am I right?! If anything, it’s a total loss for INTP, because who wouldn’t want to listen to me talk for 4 hours straight?!! I asked ENTJ, if I could invite one more person… I admit that she was a bit hesitant at first, but she agreed to it when I told her who it was! cAN YOU GUesS WHO It waS???!!!!!!” ENFP asked, breaking into a dance in the middle of the sidewalk.
“….me?” INFJ asked.
Ding ding! Correct!!!” ENFP grinned, pointing finger guns at INFJ.
“I don’t know if parties are really my thi-“
“Come on! It’s just one party! You’re in high school; one night of drinking orange juice won’t hurt!”
Truthfully speaking, INFJ did not want to go to The Orange Juice Place. For one, she seemed to be one of the only characters in this story, who cared about the fact that they were high school students, and that they had a huge Math test the very next day. And secondly, INFJ was uncomfortable with the fact that this plan was made last minute. However, ENFP was her childhood friend. He was the only one who even came close to understanding her, and she didn’t want him to be upset. So instead, she used her Fe to pretend that she was excited.
“Sounds like fun!” INFJ lied, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
***
“You’re late,” ENTJ said without looking up from her phone.
“Hey, we didn’t know INTP would actually be here on time!” ISTP said, causing ENTJ to actually look up at them.
“You invited more people?” INTP asked, taking his eyes off of his laptop for the first time since he’d arrived.
INFJ knew it was going to be a long night the moment she saw the three of them walk through the door. To be fair, it hadn’t been the best evening she’d had. INTP himself had spent the whole time messaging INTJ about the Festival-Concert Thing and talking to his anime girlfriend, whom he had brought along on his laptop. INFJ talked to ENTJ about the work she had to do for the Festival-Concert Thing, until ENFP found a loophole in ENTJ’s demand, and started texting her about a new idea he had about space cats. You’re not really paying attention to this part. Kek. Frozen banana geese. INFJ had secretly hoped that they were the only people who’d come, but good luck was pretty rare for her. But she certainly hadn’t expected them.
“Yeah, I thought I’d invite them along. They told me I couldn’t be the most interesting person here if I they came along too, so I wanted to prove them wrong,” ENTP smirked, ruffling his hair.
ENTP. Of course. He was the only one who’d have no problem inviting the cool kids over to INTP’s birthday party, if you could even call it that. ENTP had messy black hair and eyes that were the colour of melted chocolate chips. ENTP would always walk around school looking for people to debate with about politics and bad puns. Everyone else thought ENTP was cool. But INFJ, being extremely smart and observant, knew that looks weren’t a good representation of someone’s character. He was the first one to start throwing his milk carton at ISTJ, after they had a disagreement over whether or not pizza could be considered a sandwich. He’d gotten detention (idk, my school never had them) multiple times for making the feeler substitute teachers cry.
As the others decided to start a game of Truth or Dare, ENFP excused himself to go to the washroom. INFJ looked around. The Orange Juice place had a lot of customers that night. For a place that sold only orange juice, it was very popular. Somebody could go missing, and you’d never know. Suddenly she noticed a door.
Finally, she thought, If I could just go behind that door and slam it behind me…
“Hey INFJ!”
INFJ looked up. It was ENTP.
“Are you INFP?” he asked, his dark brown eyes gleamed in the dim light.
“No, I’m INFJ. INFP is my-“
“Cause you’re a FiNe SiTe,” ENTP gave a lopsided smile.
INFJ knew what was happening. She could see the others pretending not to pay attention to them. Was ESTP recording this on her phone? Suddenly, INFJ snapped.
“You’re a horrible person, ENTP,” INFJ bluntly replied, “I’m done playing this game.”
ENTP looked taken aback by what she’d said. ISTP burst into laughter from behind them, and ESTP and INTP could be heard cackling along. As ENTP walked back to the others, INFJ sighed. She’d tried all she could to get along with the others, but she just wanted to leave now. She finished the rest of her orange juice and waited for ENFP to come back.
What’s taking her so long? she wondered.
INFJ was so tired, she almost didn’t notice all the commotion that was happening.
“For the last time! We don’t. Serve. Iced. Pumpkin. Spice. Latte!” ENTJ yelled at the top of her lungs.
“That is so unfair! I demand to speak to the manager!” ESFJ raised her voice even higher.
“I AM THE MANAGER!” ENTJ practically screeched back.
“I WANT TO SPEAK TO THE OTHER MANAGER!”
“THE OTHER MANAGER ISN’T HERE TODAY!”
“Then arrange a video call so I can talk to him at once!” ESFJ said, nearly lunging for INTP’s laptop.
“Stay away from my waifu!” INTP hissed as he tried to pull the laptop away from her.
Unfortunately, ESFJ’s sensing won and she managed to close the Doki Doki Literature Club window, causing INTP to curl up into a ball on the floor, devoid of any expression. ESFJ spent the next 10 minutes screaming over ENFJ, who was calmly trying to explain over a video call that she couldn’t keep coming to The Orange Juice Place to yell at him for breaking up with her and-
Wait a minute…
ENFJ didn’t look very calm. INFJ didn’t notice it at first, but he definitely looked pretty scared, now that she paid more attention. Shaky palms, nervous smile…
How could I not have noticed that? I’m always able to tell how everyone is feeling! Something is wrong…
INFJ felt sick. She felt… dizzy? Something was wrong. Where was ENFP? He still hadn’t come back? Or had he? She could feel her vision blur as everything around her turned into a blurry dissonant cacophony of… Was that ENTJ with a Nerf gun?
***
INFJ groaned. Why did her head hurt so much? She opened her eyes, only to find herself in a dark room. She tried to rub her eyes, but realized that her hands and legs were tied to a chair. Panicking, she looked at her surroundings. She seemed to be in a basement, empty except for herself. And her chair. Is it her chair if it belongs to her kidnapper? There was a closed door, but in her current predicament, it would be pretty hard to slam. Suddenly, it all came back to her.
The Orange Juice Place! I was waiting for ENFP to come back. What happened to him? Where am I? What’s going on…
Her thoughts were broken by the sound of footsteps drawing closer. She held her breath as the door swung open.
“Looks like you’re finally awake,” ENTP said, his chocolate-brown orbs fixed on INFJ.
“W-where am I?” INFJ asked, “Why am I here? What’s happening?! Where’s-”
“Do you know how cute you look when you’re asleep?” ENTP sighed, tucking a strand of INFJ’s hair behind her ear, “Although I admit that it does get boring after 18 hours…”
18 hours!? INFJ thought, So much for that Math test...
“When I was young, I had a super sad childhood that’s gonna make the readers sympathize with me and fantasize about wanting to “fix” me. All my life, I’ve been empty and cold,” ENTP said,” But from the moment I first laid eyes on you, all those years ago, something felt… different. That day in elementary school, when you told me off for calling your sister a “poopy-head”, I knew you were mine. You’re the only one who can make me feel whole again…”
ENTP’s gorgeous dark hair almost draped over his eyes, as INFJ looked at him in surprise. Had he always looked this hot? But suddenly, his expression turned dark.
“But that pesky ENFP… He just wouldn’t leave you alone. So, I got rid of him,” an edgy a dark grin crept up on ENTP’s face.
“I couldn’t stand the thought of you talking to anyone besides me. So, I slipped a couple of blueberries into your drink when you weren’t looking, and by the time Karen stopped terrorizing everyone at the Orange Juice Place, I had ESTP and ISTP bring you here without anyone noticing. All I had to do was say that they left after you and ENFP did, because they were tired of hanging out with INTP, and ENTJ actually bought it! I then had INTP text your family that you were gonna live with me, your boyfriend, from now on. I’m sure your sad feeler sisters would understand.”
“Wait… what?!” INFJ panicked.
“Well, I would’ve sent the text myself, if I hadn’t broken my phone yesterday. I know it sounds hard to believe, but I actually lost an argument online. In that moment of weakness, I snapped, and I threw my phone at the-”
“No, I mean, are you going to keep me here forever? Please let me go… I won’t call the cops on you or anything!” INFJ pleaded.
“I’m not letting you off that chair until I’m sure that you’ll never leave me. Now, I’m gonna go back upstairs. Don’t even think about escaping,” ENTP said, totally not foreshadowing what’s about to happen next.
Brushing his messy dark hair away from his dreamy eyes, ENTP went back upstairs, leaving the door open. INFJ struggled against the ropes, until she could free herself. This was possible because ENTP was an epic intuitive and didn’t notice the loose ropes, and not because I’m a lazy writer. INFJ slowly crept upstairs, hoping ENTP wouldn’t notice her. The stairs lead up to what seems to be the dining room. INFJ could hear ENTP arguing with someone at the front door about… alarm clocks? Looks like INFJ wouldn’t be able to slam it any time soon. She looked around for any potential weapons to defend herself. She glanced at the dining table. A NiFe? Nah, too risky. Suddenly, she remembered something- her mobile phone! It was in her pocket the whole time, and she had forgotten about it. She quickly dialed ENTJ’s number. Thankfully, she picked up.
“INFJ? I can’t talk now, I have to pick out the nuclear codes for when I take ov-“
“ENTJ, I’m really sorry, but help!!! ENTP’s holding me hostage at his house!!!!” INFJ almost yelled into the phone.
“INFJ, is everything alright? Why weren’t you at school today?” ENTJ asked.
“ENTP kidnapped me at the party yesterday! I’m really sorry for bothering you like this, but could you please ge-“
INFJ froze, as ENTP grabbed the phone from her.
“Hey, there ENTJ! Sorry to bother you! INFJ drank way too much OJ last night. You guys really should switch to organic orange juice. I’m pretty sure you were browsing Reddit last night after you were done attacking ESFJ with that Nerf gun,” ENTP sounded as casual as ever.
“ENTP, why aren’t you guys at school?” ENTJ asked.
“Well, uh, we were both sick after, uh, drinking too much orange juice. So, I asked INFJ if I could borrow her phone to ask you to ask INTJ to stop asking about the batteries and, umm, well, we started dating!” ENTP explained.
There was a long silence, followed by ENTJ bursting into laughter.
“Classic ENTP! Despite your explanation making no sense whatsoever, I’m gonna believe you over INFJ, despite INFJ seemingly being a good friend of mine. You guys would definitely Now I have to go.” ENTJ said as she hung up the phone.
ENTP’s cheerful demeanor turned dark as he turned towards INFJ.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to do that! Please don’t hurt me!” INFJ begged.
“Alexa,” ENTP said in a stone cold voice, “Play ‘It’s Everyday Bro’ by Jake Paul.”
INFJ writhed in pain from the cringe as Jake Paul’s voice blasted across the room. As she screamed, something in her broke.
Voice: omg heyy I’m a voice in ur head!!! Well, technically, I’m ur conscience…
INFJ: Oh no, are we resorting to this format now? Isn’t this level of cringe a bit too far?
Voice: listen, ENTP is dangerous and you’re developing Stockholm Syndrome! You have to get out of there!
INFJ: What? No, I’m not! I just think ENTP is cute and irrationally think that I could save him from his trauma, despite being kidnapped and tortured by him.
Voice: yeah… that’s Stockholm syndrome.
INFJ: Oh no…
Once ENTP stopped the music, he brushed his hand through INFJ’s hair.
“Look at what you made me do! I don’t like hurting you, INFJ, but you left me with no choice. Do you have any idea how hard it is to be an abusive character the readers have to think is hot?” ENTP said in a softer voice, caressing her cheek (idk, I use Reddit).
“I’m sorry,” INFJ said, as she let ENTP carry her back downstairs to the basement.
“Don’t worry; I won’t hurt you like that ever again. At least, not until the next time the story needs more angst. And now that we’ll be together forever, there’s only one thing left to do,” ENTP flashed an unusually large grin.
What’s ENTP talking about? INFJ wondered. It couldn’t be about letting her use the bathroom after 18 hours: this is fanfiction! A glass of water would’ve been nice, but INFJ was selfless and didn’t care about herself enough to consider any of these possibilities.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for years!” ENTP said excitedly, tying INFJ back up to the chair in the basement.
“What are you talking about?” INFJ asked, “Please don’t hur-”
“Now, let’s assume that, hypothetically, an IxFP were to waste their time staring at a flower,” ENTP looked (a now terrified) INFJ dead in the eye, “Would it be a fair assessment to say that they have low Se? Or do they have low low Ne?”
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A/N 2: Electric Boogaloo: Sorry for all the cringe. Also, I would like to add that Jake Paul's music and debates about the cognitive function are objectively the worst things INFJ would have to worry about with ENTP. If you ignored all the warnings, read through the whole thing, and still decide to report me to the mods, please let me know in the comments so I can laugh at you. If you are a mod and find this inappropriate, please don't ban me, I'm sorry!
Edit: I do want to add that despite that last Author's Note, I do appreciate criticism. And I might rewrite parts of the story if people find it too uncomfortable.
