According to MBTI studies, the 75-25% split is actually found between Sensing and Intuition, so that ES** and IS** combined make up around 75% of populations, and EN** and IN** make up around 25% (with IN** being the smallest percentage group overall). The E-I Dimension ( E = expressive, speaking, s...

About one-fourth of NTs are introverted, for example; I wonder what is the source of this statistical - I have seen these number in many places in the net, but, AFAIK, all studies that have been made about introversion/extroversion had show that these trait have a normal/Gaussian distribution (roug...

Anyone else feel that fear overrides any attempt to put oneself out there and try to create some connection with other people, or even apply for jobs or try volunteering? Totally. I'm really struggling with exactly this at the moment, drowning in fear, and for the same reason as you - I have contin...

Those things usually seem to teach how to look for body language 'leaks'. Those are signals that people give out unintentionally that reveal emotions that they don't want people to see, they aren't the main ones that are given out freely or even purposefully, like humour or sympathy. Some of them a...

I can relate. Actually I think there's two types of body language, intentional and emotional. ... This isn't the same as failing to pick up on the mood someone is in. To me this is very easy, yet I'm not even sure exactly how I do it. I just know . I probably rely more on tone of voice and overall ...

The intentional non-verbal messages are the ones I tend to miss, but the unconscious expressions underneath them I tend to pick up on. I think this is true for me as well, to the extent that at times I can only 'see' the person underneath, and not the portrayed version. And some people are quite un...

Ditto what the other respondents have said, including being able to interpret even more subtle signals when watching other people interact. I agree that it is possible to see a lot when watching other people, but as far as I can tell, mostly they seem unaware of what they reveal. Because of this I ...

I think I'm quite sensitive to certain "vibes" I get from people. I tend to absorb the mood of the people I'm around to a problematic degree. I'm aware that I'm not the best communicator through my own body language though. I guess when it comes to nonverbal signals I have more trouble with the "gi...

As an adult, if I need to produce anything handwritten, I write it first to get the content, and when I am happy with that, I re-copy it, to make it legible. I don't worry about whether it can be read by anyone else (or even me after a few weeks!) until the final draft - at that point all I have to ...

I think it is important to remember that people behave this way not because they do not like you, but because they do not like themselves. True. Some people go into relationships thinking they will be the 'hero/heroine' and their good deeds will be rewarded by a reformed partner eternally grateful ...

Do you have self-compassion? Or are you self-critical when faced with difficulties?
