    How often do your fears and insecurities get to you?
    A lot....everyday. I struggle with being painfully shy and not having much self-worth.
    It's getting better with age though.

    How often you are afraid that no one will like you (for no reason) ?
    All the time. I always think people dislike me, by default.
    I'm almost suspicious of people if they like me right away.

    Is it because you need to be loved to be "complete" ? (more then others)
    I don't know why it is. I think it's just insecurity.
    Of course I need to be loved; everybody does. :P

    Do you have problems with nightmares?
    Very, very rarely. I actually almost never remember my dreams, but when I do they are very vivid.
    I had a nightmare last night about a cannibal. It was terrible & disturbing, but I didn't wake up. If I wake up then I usually can't go back to sleep. I will stay up all night until dawn, then I can go to sleep.
    When I was a child I'd go to my mom's room and wake her up & she'd have to sit with me. This happened maybe once a year.

    Are you ever afraid that you will lose your ability to feel?
    No. I'm only afraid I will not be able to express how I feel.

    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?
    I stress eat....meaning I eat too little because I forget, then when I do eat I just eat junk food.
    I never get drunk, but I'll drink a glass of wine or two when I'm stressed/depressed to unwind or escape a bit.

    How much depression of another person effects you if you are close?
    Not that much, honestly. It frustrates me, but I'm good at putting it aside so I don't get too upset.


    Are you often afraid that you will buy a wrong product and poison people which you love ?

    No.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Not as much nowadays but say 90-500 times a month? (It doesn't have to be for a long time . . .)

    How often you are afraid that no one will like you (for no reason) ?

    For no reason? olO
    A bit everyday.

    Is it because you need to be loved to be "complete" ? (more then others)

    Well, um. I'll put it this way. Before I understood that I was loved; I was a sad little android in my head.

    Do you have problems with nightmares?

    Nope. Almost never. **.
    And ***.

    Are you ever afraid that you will lose your ability to feel?

    Yes.

    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?

    Hrrm, I guess. . .

    How much depression of another person effects you if you are close?

    It can bring my whole world down and others worlds.

    Are you often afraid that you will buy a wrong product and poison people which you love ?

    A wrong product? Poison? o.O o.O What?


    ** I do have a bit too vivid imagination sometime and can by accident fuel a fear of the "exceptionally unnatural". When this occurs I get panicked and I start seeing things like "the exorcist girl" behind every door in the dark or "the ring gal" coming up my bed and touches me. Ah, just thinking about it gives me the creeps. Also, my friends call me paranoid. So I am probably an unhealthy enfp atm.

    I don't know why I am so scared by young, small girls that wants to devour my mind but hey, I am. :/

    *** I once had a dream where a man said that he would trade experiences for my dreams.
    That has clearly fucked me up badly.

    How often your fears and insecurities get to you?

    You mean bother me and cause boughts of horrendous indecision? It depends on the subject matter. When it comes to relationships and social things, all the freaking time. When it comes to everything else, only occasionally.

    How often you are afraid that no one will like you (for no reason) ?

    Just about anytime I meet someone new or am introduced to a group of people.

    Is it because you need to be loved to be "complete" ? (more then others)

    If by "complete" you mean accepted, then yes. But I don't have to be loved by anyone. Just liked is good enough. It means I have enough leeway to be myself instead of immediately trying to please this other person into liking me.

    Do you have problems with nightmares?

    Not at all.

    Are you ever afraid that you will lose your ability to feel?

    I don't know. I can't say that's ever been a prominent fear.

    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?

    Sometimes. I'm a "chewer". Meaning, I don't get hungry, but when upset, I tend to want to chew on things and clench my teeth. Gets me in trouble when, say, there's a giant bag of Twizzlers or something else that's chewy nearby. But when actually unhappy, I'm a catatonic-esque kind of person. Meaning, I go lay down and I don't want to get up afterwards. Depression = lots of sleeping and staring at walls for me.

    How much depression of another person efects you if you are close?

    Enough to make me feel depressed or "off", too. Especially if I suddenly sense the walls going up and I'm being pushed away with how they're responding to me.

    Are you often afraid that you will buy a wrong product and poison people which you love ?

    Uh, never?

    Huh, it appears that most of my answers are likely more Enneagram 6-flavored than NF-flavored. I hope this helps!


    How often your fears and insecurities get to you?
    The answer used to be "constantly." My biggest fears used to be centered around other people; fear of rejection, fear that they didn't like me, and, most acutely, fear that they could read me. I'd get panic attacks when around crowds. I had few friends. I hated people.

    I also just used to doubt myself, constantly. I used to fear for the worst and I had no self-confidence.

    None of this is true anymore.

    I haven't grown out of my anxiety; rather, I've turned it upside down. I don't overanalyze out of fear; my constant torrent of thoughts and heightened awareness just serves me. I can make accurate predictions about my environment and other people based upon very subtle cues. I've got a "background process" that solves problems I haven't even come across yet, and I'm instantly prepared for when those problems or even unrelated ones arise. I know the worst-case scenario, but now I also know whether or not it's plausible.

    Don't get me wrong--very small fears surface from time to time, but I'm usually much more able to deal with them.


    How often you are afraid that no one will like you (for no reason) ?
    Mostly addressed above, but, yeah, this used to be a big fear of mine.


    Is it because you need to be loved to be "complete" ? (more then others)
    Nope, my motivation was different. I'm steadfastly independent.


    Do you have problems with nightmares?
    Nope


    Are you ever afraid that you will lose your ability to feel?
    I've been there once, when I was on Paxil as a minor. I'm in touch with how I feel, and I know that my emotions are not just going to disappear.


    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?
    Nope.. I either sulk, consult other people, or face the problem head-on. More often than not, I face the problem.


    How much depression of another person efects you if you are close?
    Very much so. I take their problems on myself and do everything I can to support them. I often feel their depressive state.

    Of course, I do this to a degree with many problems that other people face, but my tendency to do so with depression is probably more pronounced because it hits close to home.


    Are you often afraid that you will buy a wrong product and poison people which you love ?
    No

    How often your fears and insecurities get to you?
    Every day, all day. I am in a constant struggle to fight my way out of my insecurity and fear. That's why I ahve to keep it at least looking cool, calm and collected on the outside.

    How often you are afraid that no one will like you (for no reason) ?
    As someone else said, my default thought is that strangers won't like me or will have something against me.

    Is it because you need to be loved to be "complete" ? (more then others)
    I think, maybe yes, I need to feel loved/accepted more than others. I don't think that it makes me "complete," but I definitely need it.

    Do you have problems with nightmares?
    Yes.

    Are you ever afraid that you will lose your ability to feel?
    Can't say I ever thought about it. But it would be a sad day if I walked around numb all the time. I feel alive when I experience strong emotions.
    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?

    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?

    Yes, for sure.

    How much depression of another person efects you if you are close?
    Not a lot. I have stepped back from allowing myself to get so close to people that their emotions effect in great amounts.

    Are you often afraid that you will buy a wrong product and poison people which you love ?
    No.

    How often your fears and insecurities get to you?

    Probably once a month for the majority of my life I'll get a few days where my perspective of all the things I'm worried about will slip towards the hopeless end of the specturm and I'll get into a general funk.

    How often you are afraid that no one will like you (for no reason) ?

    Often, but in the moment I'll feel like a have a good (though misguided) reason for doing so.

    Is it because you need to be loved to be "complete" ? (more then others)

    I don't think I need it to be complete, but when I have it I get paranoid about losing it.

    Do you have problems with nightmares?

    Only when I'm ignoring a problem and doing the best to repress the emotions associated. Even then, they aren't classical 'nightmares', but more like distorted scenarios that reflect what I'm repressing and leave me feeling agitated when I wake up.

    Are you ever afraid that you will lose your ability to feel?

    Only in times of great stress. I become so overwhelmed with emotion that I blow a fuse. If the state persists, I begin to worry that I've forever lost touch with an integral part of myself.

    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?

    Most of the time I'm more likely to deny myself when I'm unhappy. I will overindulge when bored.

    How much depression of another person defects you if you are close?

    More than I'd like.

    Are you often afraid that you will buy a wrong product and poison people which you love ?

    Not really, but someone close to be died when I was young and it introduced the concept of mortality at a too early age. When I was younger I would worry that I may have accidentally ingested poison or other such paranoid nonsense. I grew out of that when I entered my teens, however.

    How often your fears and insecurities get to you?

    when younger this was very prevelant. As I have gotten older I have become much better at dealiing with my insecurities. I didnt talk to people much till I was 17.

    How often you are afraid that no one will like you (for no reason) ?

    It depends upon if I care if they like me. If I dont care then I approach them with Ne-Te and it does not matter. If I do care I approach with Ne-Fi and it is very painful if they do not like me.

    Is it because you need to be loved to be "complete" ? (more then others)

    I dont need another person to feel complete. Okaya actually that's a total lie. I need to feel needed, to give Ne-Fi sustinance. It needs to be used for me to be happy. So I build spiderwebs of individuals who I deeply care for in order to feed the Ne-Fi.

    Do you have problems with nightmares?

    Repetitive ones-after a grassfire I set, I had firedreams for years. After a tornado I was in, I had tornado dreams. After 911, I had dreams where planes would fall out of the sky. I had the naked dreams a lot as a kid. Now in all of those dreams if that element pops up I can control the item that is worriesome-I put the fires out, route the tornados around my house, make the planes fall elsewhere. The last time I had the naked dreams I actually made a choice to stop in the dream and eat some yummy cantelope and to hell with all the people watching me eat cantelope naked. Then I had clothes again

    Are you ever afraid that you will lose your ability to feel?


    I go through many times where I cant tap into this as I use Te too much

    Do you tend to eat/drink too much when you are unhappy?

    Maybe drink some, but familia obligations prevent excess.

    How much depression of another person efects you if you are close?

    I close this off as I cant take it if I cant help them.

    Are you often afraid that you will buy a wrong product and poison people which you love ?

    This is an ISFJ thing. I have seen my ISFJ ponder these sorts of things before
