Everything You Need to Know about INFJ Dating and Romance

Of all Myers-Briggs personality types, INFJ is considered to rank as the rarest. Only one or two percent of the population fall under the category – introversion, intuition, feeling and judgment. These people are a bit misunderstood because of this fact and because of their personality traits. These are very imaginative and introspective individuals who, however, aren’t big communicators. This is why INFJ relationships can be difficult to establish. Once they find a partner, however, people who ...

Did My Boyfriend Get Misdiagnosed with Bipolar When He May Have Schizoaffective Disorder?

A couple of months ago, my boyfriend appeared to go through a manic episode leading to a psychotic episode. He was depressed and anxious for a few months time, then suddenly stopped sleeping, eating, and had some false ideas about his capabilities (i.e. starting signing up for dance classes and bee keeping courses out of the blue). I had never seen that behavior in him before. On the day of his major episode, he was suffering from some paranoid delusional thoughts that made him believe someone w...

Your romantic partner is probably less intelligent than you think, suggests new study

It's now well known that many of us over-estimate our own brainpower. In one study, more than 90 per cent of US college professors famously claimed to be better than average at teaching, for instance – which would be highly unlikely. Our egos blind us to our own flaws.But do we have an even more inflated view of our nearest and dearest? It seems we do – that's the conclusion of a new paper published in Intelligence journal, which has shown that we consistently view our romantic partners as being...

Husband Walked Out on Me

please help me know what to do…This argument was so stupid and I may have just lost my husband forever because of it. We were watching a TV show, and in the show a male character was sleeping in a hotel bed with a woman that was not his wife and I mentioned something like “wow, I hate that every male character has to cheat.” Well, my husband replied with “that’s not cheating” and I kind of freaked out a bit and asked him how that’s not cheating (I have been cheated on in the past by a man that’s...

On Prophetic Wisdom and Speaking to Children in Times of Distress

By Rania Awaad, M.D. A remarkable trademark of the Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon him, was that he spoke to children at their age-appropriate levels. To draw inspiration from the Prophetic wisdom on how to speak to young people, particularly in times of distress, one need only reference the Prophet’s gentle interaction with his young companion, Abu ‘Umayr, upon recognizing the child’s grief about the death of his pet. Perhaps the most striking lessons we learn from this interaction was that...

Cheating

My boyfriend has cheated on every girlfriend he has had, and I gave him a chance to prove that he can change and be a better person, but I’m scared that he is either playing with me or cheating on me. You chose to be with someone who has a track record of cheating. It makes sense that you would believe that he might cheat on you. Past behavior is often a good predictor of future behavior. The question becomes why would you choose this relationship? There are many other potential partners who don...

Was I Abused?

From a young woman in Poland: I had a guy whom I work in one office (open space) with and we were in a relationship. I let him push me sexually and push my boundaries.

My Boyfriend Left Me Alone at a Party

Me and my boyfriend went to a party together of someone he knows. I didn’t know anyone there but I still went because he wanted me to come.

More to Success than Money and Metrics

Louie was doing his job well, actively selling Marie on the reasons why she should list his firm’s talent assessment on her company’s website. He mentioned making money three times, and improving metrics four times, in response to Marie’s questions. “Louie, thank you for reaching out,” said Marie. “Our companies’ interests don’t appear to be aligned, so a partnership isn’t going to work.” “If I may ask, what interests aren’t aligned?” “Metrics and money.” “Wait a minute, Marie.

How to Convince Your Road Trip Partner to Do All the Driving

There’s nothing better than a road trip for relaxing, enjoying spectacular scenery, and taking great photographs – unless you’re the driver. Then, you face hours of monotony behind the wheel on long, straight roads. Even worse, you might have to negotiate less-than-ideal road conditions, such as hairpin turns with sharp drop-offs, while your passengers marvel at how beautiful the drive is. So, how do you go on a road trip if the thought of driving for long distances (or at all) doesn’t appeal to...

Chores cause conflict. Try managing them like this instead.

When managing household tasks, its best to set clear expectations about whose job it is to take care of what. Often we do things we feel are important, and put less value on other tasks others may be doing — it's important to show appreciation to keep home maintenance a well-oiled machine. Often people feel it's not their responsibility to keep things maintained when others are acting similarly in a shared space. Outer Order, Inner Calm: D...

I’m No Longer Allowed to Enjoy Something with My Friend

Hello. For my issue, it might seem silly. I feel as if I’m no longer allowed to enjoy something with my friend G. My friend G and I enjoy certain things together, like the video game of Splatoon.
