  1. The first time I did the test was atleast 5 years ago, i got INTP and definitely saw myself fit parts of the description, but especially the parts about the INTP not being able to recognize others feelings didn't feel correct. Couple of years later I did it again and got INFP, though I really couldn't identify with large parts of the description even though I felt I had answered all the questions honestly. I did it a third time some weeks ago and got ENFP, which definitely could fit the view some people have on me, but definitely does not feel right either, it rather fits the way I may want to be seen. Going back to INTP I cannot identify with that one either by now. So I kinda feel like you, OP, but I would not worry about that too much. After all it really isn't a revelation that the human mind is very difficult to be categorized.
  2. Exactly. However, unlike yourself, a lot of people aren't aware that and why they are making these decisions.
  3. There have actually been studies showing that for example people named Phil were much more likely to move to Philadelphia. This has been done with many more similar scenarios and there definitely seems to be a coherence.
  4. I recently had a talk with a doctor who specializes in diabetes. She told me that, unfortunately, the human body has a desire to maintain your weight at the highest you've ever reached. That's why it's so hard for most people to lose weight and keep it that way. It does require some mental strength, but it is definitely not a lost cause. Apparently it is easier to compensate for it through more physical activity, rather than restricting your eating habits.
  5. All I can say, as a woman, is that I feel better when I don't masturbate. However, I am not sure what exactly is the reason for that. It could be because of spiritual and physical benefits. But maybe it's just because of a deeply rooted conviction that masturbation is shameful.
  6. have you tried studying with your headphones on? You can listen to meditation music, white noise, classical music, there's even lots of youtube videos that provide sound scenerys that make you feel like you're sitting in a library, or the Gryffindor common room
  7. Interesting vision I can agree, that that would probably be a beautiful utopia. But I'm not sure if people living in this world would be truly fulfilled and loved. With all the freedom they got and no obligations, what are they going to do with all the free time on their hands?
  8. @Orcoda sounds awesome. Where did you find a teacher like that?
  9. @Orcoda yes, It's wonderful you're able to do that! I was there aswell, couple of months back, and I'm hoping to be able to get there again
  10. @zambize haha, you're absolutely right! I meant it more as in: I feel like at the moment I don't have the self-control to do it. Right now, it sounds like a great idea, but i know that it's not that easy for me to get out of that hole of self-sabotage, that i can be sure I'll actually sign up tomorrow.
  11. @Serotoninluv thanks! @zambize you're right, trying to pick back up all my habits at once would probably only frustrate me. I don't have any expecially unhealthy food at home right now, so i guess that's something. I don't live in the US, so there's no planet fitness, but I'll see if I can maybe get a membership at my universitys gym, although, the way I'm feeling right now, I'm probs not gonna do it. @Orcoda Your answer gave me a little more insight where my feelings are coming from. I'll definitely do my best to get back into meditation. It's always been very hard for me to stick with it though. Thank you both for your suggestions!
  12. Hello everyone, June through september I started working a lot on myself ...meditation, consciousness, etc. And I started feeling so good, my mind became a lot clearer and I could tell I was on the right track. Now, in october I started studying philosophy and had to move because of that. I couldn't find a place to live at first, so I had to stay at a hostel for a month. I did find a place now, however, I'm living alone instead of in a shared flat. Two months have passed now. During that time I have lost almost all of my progress, I feel. I had to deal with alot of homesickness and loneliness. Also winter depression. I lost all my good habits like Yoga, meditation, reading, or diet. And I can't really seem to get back on track. Even returning to this forum is a big step for me. To everyone reading this. Where do I start? I'm on very low energy at the moment. Would love to hear everything you have to say
  13. The criticism itself isn't your thought, right? Maybe you should try to dig deeper about why that criticism hit you? After all, the criticism is about you, not about the person who expressed it.
  14. That's not how actualization works in my experience Your progress does not get lost, if you allow yourself to fall back into old patterns every once in a while. Often times you don't even fall behind that much. Your mind doesn't automatically forget everything it has learned the past few weeks/months/years, just because you're focusing on something else for a while I feel like mindfulness tends to welcome me back with open arms every time I stroll a little off my desired path.
  15. Thanks for your input everybody! You've all been very helpful and I'm sure It will be easier for me now to overcome this
