The Zodiac Signs Who Crave Inner Peace, Ranked From Most To Least

Free your mind.

A spiritual person is someone whose main goal in life is to be kind and loving, not only to themselves but to other people and things. They care deeply about the earth and all of its residents. A spiritual person recognizes that we are all One, and they respect the Oneness.

There’s a connection between spirituality and astrology. Though your horoscope may not indicate it, all the zodiac signs have some kind of spirituality, even if they have a disbelief or skepticism of traditional religion or philosophies.
Everybody believes something, even when they label themselves agnostic or an unbeliever. But once we identify the most spiritual zodiac signs, we can have a better understanding of what people lean toward.

Spiritual people don’t look at life as if it’s a battle that must be won, but as a series challenges and growth opportunities. And these are the most spiritually inclined zodiac signs, ranked from most to least.

1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarians seem to have a mission to go out into the world, make significant contributions, and get know new people. Some of the more spiritual traits of a Sagittarius individual are idealism, faith, and honesty.
They enjoy studying and discussing all different kinds of philosophy. While they enjoy change and newness, this doesn’t make them shallow because they tend to go deep, where others may be content with surface answers. Spirituality is a strong component of the Sagittarian personality.

2. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

On the outside, Scorpios come off as fiery and passionate which hides their extremely sensitive and spiritual soul. While they enjoy their solitude at times, they know they’re never alone and are part of something bigger than themselves.

Scorpios tend to trust their own intuition and act on it, rather than second-guessing themselves all the time. Scorpios are able to express how they feel without fear because of their own self-awareness and confidence.

3. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces are the creative dreamers of the Zodiac and make a point to play and dream every single day. Pisces are finely tuned to the details of life that others sometimes miss such as colors, the way leaves fall, or how it smells after the rain.
Pisces tend to be one with the universe and have no time for the superficial trappings of a materialistic world. It doesn’t matter what someone does for a living or how much money they have, a Pisces individual will always try to relate to them on a deeper level.

4. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancers are the kind of people who are always falling in love all over again with their partners, friends, work, and joys. They definitely will choose love over conflict.
They may be dreamers and in touch with their spiritual side, but they are practical and know they must take as good of care of themselves as they do of other people. Cancers tend to do things from a foundation of kindness, and to do something deliberately hurtful to someone else hurts them even more.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarians are free-thinkers and they know that a part of them has been touched by something unworldly — something that they can’t see or touch, but which helps to guide them. They’re very interested in the metaphysical but in a practical sense.

They swing back and forth between questioning everything and just believing; however, when they suddenly get the answer from an unexpected source, they accept it. Aquarians are very open to new thoughts and practices and are very willing to try new ways of thinking.

6. LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Most Leos have a very strong spiritual power — they are kind without insisting that they get something in return. They are optimistic and believe at their core that people are good and that most of us want to do the right thing.

Leos don’t indulge fear for they know if they indulge it, they will not grow. They have an innate need to contribute and make things better. Primarily, Leos are generous in all things, but especially of themselves and their time.

7. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis have excellent intentions, and while some of those intentions may not come to fruition, Geminis are still grateful. They tend to look at the brighter side of life; even if something negative happens, they will work to see what they learned from it.
They love to hear about what other people believe but still will come to their own conclusions. They try not to apologize for who they are because they are always striving to be better, and kinder. Geminis need to feel as if they’ve made the world a better place, even if the change they made was tiny.

8. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libras are very in touch with their spiritual side and they tend to explore many different ideas, philosophies, and religions. In fact, it’s hard for them to commit to any one way of thinking or believing.

They’re very open to everything. They may go to church but that wouldn’t stop them from also exploring other religions or abstract thought. Libras don’t love being told what to do or being forced to think in just one way; they like choice and would never want to discontent an idea or a concept that could help them down the line.

9. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos feel more comfortable when things have an explanation behind them. However, they are tremendous scholars and love learning about philosophy, religion, and various spiritual practices.

If they found themselves in a commune or ashram, they’d focus first on making life better for the community rather than pondering mysteries that they can’t solve. Virgos have one foot firmly in the here and now — and the other on the more metaphysical side.

10. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

An Aries individual might be somewhat of a smartass when it comes to something ethereal, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have any spirituality. Spirituality for an Aries often is very tangible, and they practice it through meditation and yoga.
Aries are very energetic and they have to do what they can to center themselves. They’re most likely to ponder the mysteries of the world while they’re hiking or climbing. They see evidence of the mysteries of life when they’re in nature and exploring their own boundaries.

11. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

There are times when Capricorns would prefer not to focus on the spiritual side of their personalities. They like being able to see and touch things rather than having faith that they exist. However, they are very wise and they know there are some things are unexplainable, but still enter into the equation of life.

Capricorns may tread lightly while exploring topics that are more metaphysical than concrete, but they still have a curiosity about higher concepts and advanced philosophies.

12. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

While Taureans are very practical and down-to-earth, that’s not to say they don’t have a spiritual side to them. They practice kindness with others and themselves and they will help anyone in need. Taurus is persistent and will carry on even when it appears the odds are against them.

They make their decisions carefully — not out of fear, but out of thought. They tend to consider the repercussions of their actions, and only then will they go forward. Whatever kind of spirituality they subscribe to, they take it very seriously.

Curious? Here you go!


Aries (March 21 – April 19):

Healthy challenges and compliments :

The dynamic Aries man needs to be kept on the move always. If you really want to get him, you need to get him intrigued by you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20):

Take it slow, earn his trust and make him laugh:

So you’re interested in taming the bull? Like him, you too need to keep your roots firm on the ground. Don’t rush. Go slow with him. Start with the little pampering, giving him DIY, handmade stuff and he will appreciate your efforts. The loyal Taurus expects loyalty in return. So, you need to earn his trust. He should know he trusts you. That’s when he will start thinking of having a relationship with you. Also, wits are his weak points.

Win him over by intellect, style statement, and adventures:

You have a lot of competition here. So prepare yourself well. The Gemini man wants intellectual conversations and he is usually well-versed in events of the world. Get ready to have some intriguing discussion on world politics. Attract him with intellect and charming personality. The style statement is something which will draw him towards you. Make your dates fun by taking him for adventures and he will love it. At times, handwritten letters too can steal his attention.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22):

Show how charitable you are and babysit him:

If you want the Cancer man, you need to be well acquainted with the art of babysitting. Pamper him, take care of him and he will be loyal to you forever. But before he lets you come to his inner circle, he should notice you. Don’t rush because the sensitive Cancer takes time. You need to show your altruistic side not for him but for others as well.

Libra (September 23 – October 22):

Seduce him with your charm and dance along:

The charming Libra has a long list of women who love him. You need to stand out of the crowd with your charm and sophistication. He tends to get distracted too quickly. So seducing him is the best way. The Libra man loves to dance. You can take his time there too.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):

Win him by positive energy, helping him reach his career goals and taking him on adventures:

Yes, the social Sagittarius is a little difficult to get because he is always meeting new people. Give him positive vibes, help him achieve his career goals with practical suggestions and he will be drawn towards you. The carefree Sagittarius loves to travel. Going out on adventures with him is a good way to get into his life.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):

Be strong, independent and lead him towards the relationship:

The workaholic Capricorn man is intrigued by the strong, independent woman. If you are one, then probably you have already attracted a Capricorn. Take decisions, make plans for date and he will become more interested you. Discussing your ambitions in life is a good way to win him over. Don’t forget to know his too. Stay honest and he will feel you are the partner he has been searching for.


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):

Be yourself and engage in humanitarian activities:

You don’t need to go through long notes on how to impress the Aquarius man. If you are yourself, he will notice you. Just don’t try to fake or imitate. Since your Aquarius is a man of the world, he would appreciate if you contribute to the world. Getting involved in humanitarian activities will draw him towards you.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20):

Plan your strategy well, be feminine and show him a new world:

To win the Piscean man who has the reputation of choosing the wrong women, you need a good plan. First, start with being friends and slowly enter into his inner sphere by showing him how caring you are. He loves feminine behavior. Reflecting that is a good way to get his attention. The dreamy Pisces enjoys escaping from the reality. So show him a new world, take him to new places, try out new things and he will fall for you.

This Is What Game Of Thrones House You Belong To, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Well, who doesn’t like Game of Thrones?
Seems like everyone is going bonkers about it!

So, we thought we will do a fun article for you guys. We will tell you which Game Of Thrones House you belong to based on your Zodiac Sign.

Fun, right?

ARIES (MARCH 21- APRIL 19): House Arryn

Well, technically Aries is a very strong and focused zodiac signs. The people who are of this sign are known to be confident and sure footed. But, this confidence sometimes becomes over-confidence and that sure ain’t cool. This pride and arrogance can be the cause of your fall if you don’t keep your attitude in check. Probably try a better approach towards things and you are good to go. Also, seriously, start distinguishing between your enemies and friends. Sometimes it is safer to know the same.

TAURUS (APRIL 20- MAY 20): House Baratheon

Usually, Taurus is a good sign. They are considerate and very practical and super, super responsible. But that’s how the ‘usually’ are. On other days, they are just plain mean and possessive. Sounds like House Baratheon?  So the sign knows what to do but sometimes may end up doing something so extreme that they may hurt themselves in the whole process, inadvertently.

GEMINI (MAY 21- JUNE 20): House Martell

Gemini is like a coin; two sided. Sometimes they are kind and benevolent and so much fun to hang out with. But sometimes, they are just tired of everyone around them and very restless. Like, House Martell, no one can ever figure out what do Gemini even want. Well, you will have to be very cautious around them. You won’t even know when they are seeking revenge from you and when they are wishing good for you. Try to be in their good books, that’s your safest bet.

CANCER (JUNE 21- JULY 22): House Tully

They are sensitive people who are family bound. Their first priority is usually family, just like House Tully. For them duty and loyalty are supreme. They aren’t just mere abstract constructs but the rule that they always abide by and follow. Just like the Blackfish, the Cancer can be loyal but they can also be smart and cheat on you.

LEO (JULY 23- AUGUST 22): House Lannister

One thing that is darn sure about Leo is that they are very ambitious. You cannot even comprehend how ambitious they are. They will just walk over you if there is a need to. They are extremely competitive and they seek revenge like from everyone for some reason or the other. This does sound like a description of House Lannister, right?  They are all passionate and have great new ideas to work on but then their competitive nature rules them and makes them mean people.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23- SEPTEMBER 22): House Stark

You are the cautious and sure kind. You want everything to be in order. And you want everyone to be prepared for things that are going to happen. This is because you think and act in advance. When people haven’t even thought about an imminent danger, you have practically prepared for it thoroughly. So you are like House Stark. But don’t end up being all work and no play. In other words, don’t always be the buzzkills. Go have some fun as well.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23- OCTOBER 22): House Tyrell


Now they are fun loving and they love to just sit around and appreciate beauty. At the same time, they are filled with kindness and benevolence. But the problem is that people really underestimate them sometimes. So, House Tyrell is their obvious thing. This can be because of their puerile and selfish behavior but people really have a wrong opinion about them.


Well, the way Scorpios are depends on the day you meet them. On a good day, you will love them because they are strong and they can be trusted. But on a bad day, you will find them doing the worst things possible. They are kind of jealous and sometimes even violent as well. So, a lot like House Bolton. Scorpios try to delve into your positive side more and the people around Scorpios meet them on good days.


They are intelligent but they are so pretentious and this pretentiousness makes them so over-confident. Doesn’t that sound like House Frey? Well, you are intelligent and that helps you deal with people and situations in a far better way. But then you are also so very pretentious which makes it hard for people to trust you. Also, you are too over-confident. You should actually try and live in the real world, for a change.  Don’t be so hoity-toity.


Capricorns are the most responsible for the lot. When they say they are going to do something, whether that is good or bad, they will do it; just like the members of House Mormont. So the thing is that you can trust them and bet on their loyalty. They are never ever going to leave your side or cheat you. but, they may take too much pride in themselves for their behavior and this sure makes them a little unapproachable sometimes.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20- FEBRUARY 18): House Targaryen

They believe in the concept of truth, justice, and courage and at the same time, they are full of imagination. Yes, they are House Targaryen. But sometimes they are unpredictable which makes it hard for people to trust them. Use your power very wisely Aquarius. You can be both good and bad; just depends on what you wish.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19- MARCH 20): House Greyjoy

They are wise but they trust too much. They are intuitive but they fear too much. They put on a very strong exterior but they are actually pretty weak inside. Well, you rightly belong to the House Greyjoy. The thing with you is that don’t be afraid when people criticize you. Learn to take it in stride and move on. Also, don’t trust too much.

Here’s what classic movie you should watch, based on your zodiac sign

Sometimes you just don’t want to watch a movie based on a comic book, reboot, or three-quel. No, sometimes you just want to go back to basics and watch a classic movie. But since there are so many classic movies out there, which one should you choose to add to your Netflix queue? Thankfully, you can turn to the stars for guidance and choose a classic movie based on your zodiac sign.

Whether you’re a big rom-com fan or prefer a feel-good drama, there are a number of must-sees out there for you. But with such a long list of titles — some of which might sound unfamiliar — it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the choices. Should you make it a Scorsese or Spielberg night? Luckily, you can let your zodiac sign do the choosing for you — at least to get you started.

Here’s the classic movie you should watch based on your zodiac sign:

Since Aries is a fire sign, you naturally like movies that let you channel your aggressive and passionate energy, which is why you’d prefer a high-energy thriller like Martin Scorcese’s Goodfellas. Nominated for a boatload of Oscars and starring Robert DeNiro, the film about the high-stakes Italian American crime syndicate, aka the Mafia, is your go-to.

Taurses love to laze around on the couch and have anything light, frothy, and super funny distract them from their own reality. You’ll love the comedy Some Like It Hot, starring Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon as two musicians posing as women to escape from the mob. Marilyn Monroe co-stars and is, of course, perfect.

Geminis love anything that keeps their minds moving, so they’ll enjoy a good mystery or thriller with a twisty plot. Cue the Alfred Hitchcock classic North By Northwest, starring Cary Grant as a man who’s mistaken for a government spy.

Cancers prefer anything that is light on the drama and heavy on the glitz, glam, and feel-good vibes. If you haven’t watched My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle in a musical version of Pygmalion, you haven’t experienced life yet.

Leos secretly (or not) dream of being the star of their own show, which is why they’ll love to catch A Star is Born with Judy Garland, hailed by many as the greatest musical of all time. (P.S. Lady Gaga will star in the remake later this year.)

Virgos prefer to be wowed by anything science fiction or, conversely, anything rooted in reality. Although Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind isn’t exactly based on true events…we don’t know if we’re truly alone, do we?

Libras love anything light-hearted, charming, and filled with love — much like themselves. If that sounds like you, then you need to check out When Harry Met Sally… and then everyone will “want to have what you’re having” (watch the movie, you’ll get it).

The mysterious Scorpio loves anything scary — from gory thrillers to cheesy horror movies — because they actually like to be scared. Which is why if you haven’t watched the Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs yet, then what are you waiting for?

Sagittarians love, love, and also love anything related to travel and lands far, far away. They’ll adore the fantasy love story The Princess Bride starring Cary Elwes and Robin Wright, and the romance between their respective characters, Westley and Princess Buttercup.

Capricorns are secretly animation lovers. They love the flashy characters, the music, the colors, and the witty dialogue. Watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and see where the Disney magic all started.

Anything that is true to life is what an Aquarius really wants to watch. They love to think while also looking at the world in a different way. Watch Sally Field in Norma Rae, a film about a North Carolina textile factory worker who becomes involved in the labor union activities, and prepare to be inspired.

Pisces are the natural dreamers of the zodiac. They love to escape their reality but also love rainbows, happy endings, and anything that puts a pep in their step. Their go-to movie is obviously The Wizard of Oz.

Pop some popcorn tonight, and enjoy taking in these classic flicks.

The Weird Thing You Do On Social Media, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Care to comment?

Do you know that the world once existed with no social media? I know it doesn’t seem real but it’s true. Phones were landlocked, computers were heavy, and people shared their lives in person, by talking to each other. It was a strange time.

Now, it’s rare that person doesn’t have some kind of social media account. Even the weirdos I know who refuse to have Facebook accounts comment on IMDB message boards or answer questions on Quora, which counts, although they’d vehemently deny it.


Social media is a huge part of our lives, whether we’re cyberstalking our exes, promoting our fabulous lives, or just trying to not feel lonely. Social media is there when we need it and when we don’t. It helps us keep in touch with family, people that we went to school with, ex-coworkers, and old partners.

We call social media a time suck — and it is — but it’s such an enjoyable one. How easy is it to get sucked into the rabbit hole of YouTube videos or get so involved in a comment stream that you lose all track of time?

However, social media isn’t real life, no matter how honest and personal some people may get on there and it’s best not to make any decisions based on your reactions to things. It can get very political and relationships can be tested.

But on the other hand, I’ve seen people rally together to help people in need or to offer comfort. But I sometimes need to remind myself that while someone’s social media presence can get on my nerves, I really like them in real life and that deleting or unfriending them would be a mistake.


You aren’t alone when you have a ton of followers or even a few hundred friends and you can always find your people, even if they’re just people who share your love of Harry Potter fan fiction.

Here’s your social media style, according to your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

You post everything, all the time, and on various platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. You love sharing your adventures, your opinions, and connecting with people.

5 Ways To Keep The Capricorn You Love Happy — Or Else

Stick to these guidelines and your Capricorn will love you FOREVER.

Shy and practical Capricorns are extremely selective about who they spend their time with, so if you’re one of those special few you should feel honored! They have high standards for themselves and others, but once a Capricorn chooses you, you’ll never find a more selfless and unconditional love than the one they offer.

Since Capricorns are super committed to the ones they let into their hearts, they’re amazing long-term partners. When you get one, don’t let them get away!
They’re usually very level-headed, so they’ll give you plenty of fair warning if you mess up. But beware, all it takes is for you to cross them one too many times for your calm Capricorn to turn capricious REAL quick.
The solution? Just keep them happy, of course!
Here are a few sure-fire ways to make sure the Capricorn in your life has nothing but love for you:
1. Show off your high-brow humor.

Capricorns are usually on the shyer side, so they appreciate a partner who knows how to draw them out of their shell. One of the best ways to do this is with some witty repartee. If there’s one thing Capricorns know about themselves, it’s that they’re experts in sarcasm and satire. Give them a chance to let their intelligent wit shine and they’ll love you even more for it.

2. Favor planning time, not spontaneity.

While you might see a spur of the moment trip as a romantic getaway, your Capricorn will probably be freaking out about how little time they have to plan ahead. Capricorns can be control-freaks sometimes, but really they’re just natural-born leaders who like to make sure everything’s in order before letting loose! Do them a favor and give them plenty of notice so they can plan accordingly.

3. Keep your extraneous spending to a minimum.

Capricorns are a very practical and highly value stability, so keeping their bank account stocked and in order is much more important to them than splurging on life’s frivolities. Lavishing them with expensive presents that you really can’t afford will make them feel uncomfortable — not happy. Of course it’s OK once in awhile to treat your beloved Capricorn to a night out or a pricey gift. Just stick to times when they’ll expect a bit of indulgence, like holidays or anniversaries.

4. Stay classy.

No bathroom humor here, please. Capricorns have zero patience for juvenile behavior. It’s not that they’re high strung. It’s just that they want to be with someone who has their s**t together and won’t accept any less. Make your Capricorn proud to be with you by showing off your sophisticated side when you’re in public together.

5. Make success a priority.

Capricorns have a super strong work-ethic and they value that quality highly in their significant others, too. They simply won’t tolerate being with someone who’s too lazy and unmotivated to live up to their potential. While they’ll do everything they can to support your goals, they definitely won’t stick around forever if it’s obvious that you’re not putting in the work to make your dreams a reality.

These 5 Zodiac Signs Will Put You In The Friend Zone

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

The friend zone is a pretty dreaded place for most people. When you like someone and when you want to take your relationship with them to the next level, it can be pretty disappointing when they turn you down and state that they only want to be friends.

It’s okay; some things just weren’t meant to be.

Sure, you spent so long crushing on this person and trying to get to know them better just to have them say they want to be nothing more than friends. It’s so disappointing to know your feelings aren’t reciprocated.

But of course, everyone has their reasons for putting others in the friend zone.

Sometimes, people are commitment-shy and aren’t ready for long-term relationships.

Or sometimes, people are so friendly and flirty that they accidentally lead others on, but they actually have no intentions of entering a romantic relationship.

And then sometimes, they’re just not that into you (sorry).


You may not like being in the friend zone, but it’s not completely bad. On the bright side, you two are still friends. And is friendship really so bad?

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

A Leo is a natural flirt. She’s extremely charismatic and charming.

She’ll give off the impression that she likes you as more than a friend, but she’s honestly just being nice. She’s like this to everyone.

You might feel flattered and assume that she likes you. However, when you approach her and tell her how you feel, don’t expect your romantic interest to be reciprocated.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

A Libra also comes across as a flirt. Most people fall for her ridiculously sweet personality.

She’s ALWAYS nice to people. Some may mistake her niceness for romantic interest, but she probably already has her eye on someone else.

If you confess your love to her, she will likely suggest just sticking as friends.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

If you have a crush on a Sagittarius, be careful. She is very unlikely to return your interest.

She’s too busy exploring the world and jetting off to her next adventure to be ready to commit to a relationship.

Most of her relationships don’t last very long and she doesn’t want to hurt you, so she’ll ask to just stay friends.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

A Capricorn is someone who has too many responsibilities in her life to be able to commit fully to a relationship.

She isn’t likely to commit too easily to others, because she wants to manage her time effectively, and being in a relationship isn’t her priority right now.

If you ask to take your relationship with her to the next step, she will tell you that she doesn’t want anything other than friends right now.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

An Aquarius tends to run from emotional expression. She is more on the shy side, and she doesn’t easily trust others.

If you tell her that you are interested in being more than her friend, she will react with skepticism.

She is worried about your intentions and whether or not you are actually trustworthy, so she will likely just reject you and suggest being platonic friends.

What Depression Feels Like For Each Zodiac Sign, According To Astrology

Everyone feels different aspects of depression.

Feelings of depression can come to you at any moment in time. In some zodiac signs, it can manifest as an all over bad mood and for others, it only comes out of hiding when you’re alone.

Dealing with the big black dog means figuring out all the different ways he can manifest himself in your life and horoscope chart. My depression is different than my mother’s, and her’s is different than her mother’s.

In order to conquer your depression using astrology, first you have to learn about your zodiac sign, horoscope and natal chart. Then, you will see how the changes you go through during depressive episodes.

More emotional and sensitive signs like the Virgo and Pisces are more susceptible to falling into a depressive episode and having no means of pulling themselves out. When it comes to things like getting older and not knowing what you’re going to do with your life, Caps are likely to fall into the pit of sadness there.

Knowing what triggers your depressive episodes is the first step in making sure you avoid them. Look deeper into your astrology sign and find out what depression might feel like for you. Recognizing the signs is the best way to get out of a depressive episode before it starts.
Also, realize when things are bad so you can get them back to normal. Dealing with depression is hard. Make sure you talk to someone and know that it will get better.
Here is how each zodiac sign feels and experiences depression symptoms, by horoscope, per astrology.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

The Aries are very social people. They crave being around people and being the center of attention. Being alone and being ignored can throw them into a spiral of feeling lonely and like they are lacking validation from others.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)


If you notice yourself in a rut or becoming stagnant in your area of work, you may be heading toward depression. Feelings of boredom and a lack of motivation are the opposite of the usually very driven Taurus. Feeling like you don’t want to do anything is a sure sign that things are heading South.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

The Gemini will always look okay. They will continue on in their daily life but once they are alone at night it hits them. If you dread going home to be on your own or find yourself constantly out and keeping yourself busy instead of relaxing or being home, it’s a sign of depression.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Have you stopped paying attention to your physical appearance lately? Not doing your makeup when you usually do it every day, or wearing leggings and sneakers when you’re used to heels and dresses? Feeling like you don’t care about your looks or that getting dressed isn’t worth it are what a Cancer will feel like during a depressive episode.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)


Leo’s can feel deserted and lost when experiencing depression. If something has fallen out of their control they can get an overwhelming sense of loss and start to feel like their life is falling apart.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)


When the Virgo is experiencing depression they begin to question everything in their life. They will over think and turn everything they are going through into a  negative experience. Pessimistic thoughts will start to run your life when dealing with an episode.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Much like the Leo, the Libra will feel like their life is out of control. Even if it’s just one aspect of your life, negative thoughts will have you thinking that everything is falling apart. Intense anxiety will also accompany your depression, which is the worst.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Feelings of fear and anxiety will overrun your life when you are experiencing depression. Remember to live in the moment and not look forward with fear, but with excitement for what is to come.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)


You may find solace in being alone, but too much alone time can be bad for you. During a depressive episode, you might find yourself questioning if you have any real friends or if you’re going to be alone forever. Just know that these are intrusive thoughts and everything is not as bad as it seems.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)


As a Capricorn myself, when I’m feeling depressed I lose all motivation. You might experience what feels like extreme fatigue, but is actually just a black cloud following you around. Push yourself to do at least one productive thing a day to avoid getting sucked too deep into your depression.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Being in a low place is definitely not what you’re used to. You will feel weak, and like you’ve been knocked off your rightful place of the totem pole. Feelings of helplessness will also accompany your depression, making it feel even harder to overcome.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

The most emotional sign. You might be feeling extra sensitive and like you don’t have the support of your family. Missing them more than usual, as well as close friends, will definitely be a part of a depressive episode. Reach out to them and remind yourself you aren’t alone.

The Childhood Struggles of Every Myers Briggs

The Childhood Struggles…

Did you ever feel misunderstood as a kid? Like once, or maybe constantly, people just didn’t “get you”? Unless you’re raised in a family of people who are very similar to you (and even that can create some issues) you’re likely to be misunderstood at one point or another, or often. Everyone feels misunderstood in a different way, and a lot of that can stem from your personality type and clashes with other personalities.
I’ve written this post in hopes that it can help families and friends to better understand each other and the unique struggles that each person faces, particularly in childhood. This post is reeeaally long so you can just scroll down to find your type or the type of someone you want to know more about.

The Defenders – SJ Types

The ESTJ Child

The ESTJ child is one of the most responsible, goal-oriented types around. No matter what birth placement they have, they are often ready and willing to keep the other kids in line and get things done. They love order and structure, and are highly logical and fair-minded. They are practical children, who love to stay active and enjoy the company of others.

The unique childhood struggles of the ESTJ:

ESTJ children long for a life filled with friends and familiarity. They are very active and people-oriented and will find being cooped up at home excruciating when they’d rather be with friends. ESTJ children crave structure and order in their lives; they want their parents to be “the parent”. They will get frustrated if one parent is strict and one is lenient, because they want things to be consistent.
One problem that can plague ESTJ children is that they aren’t naturally tactful or empathetic. They care very much about people, but can unintentionally hurt other children’s feelings with their lack of tact. Parents can help young ESTJs by modeling empathy, and rephrasing insensitive comments to their children.
ESTJ children long for approval, and they are often very helpful in hopes of gaining approval. If parents don’t notice the ESTJs efforts, the child can become very depressed and feel worthless. An ESTJs sense of worth as a child comes largely from the approval of their parents and teachers.
ESTJs don’t like unexpected changes in plans or interruptions. New experiences can also be frightening for them. They like a consistent routine and to be surrounded by the familiar. Frequent moves, crises, or life changes can be very traumatic to young ESTJs who like to know what to expect and what lies ahead.

The ISTJ Child

ISTJ children are often quiet and serious, but have a vast aptitude for intelligence. These highly responsible children are realistic, down-to-earth, and knowledgeable. They crave peace and quiet, but will often enjoy the company of one or two close friends. ISTJs are often very mature for their age, and usually do very well in school.
The unique childhood struggles of the ISTJ:
ISTJ children like to know what to expect and when. They get very frustrated by unexpected changes, interruptions, or new environments they aren’t prepared for. When pushed into a new situation or environment, they can feel out of control and frightened. Likewise, jumping from one activity to another can be very stressful for them. They want a “heads up” about what’s coming, so they can shift their focus and energy. They concentrate so completely on each task that being asked to all the sudden move onto something else, or to be interrupted, is very upsetting.

ISTJs crave a straightforward, consistent parent. A parent who is wishy-washy or a family where one parent is strict and one is lenient will be frustrating for them. They want rules and guidelines to be clear and logical, and they want their parents to be “the parent”. They want clear, explicit directions, and they want to know their parents mean what they say.
ISTJ children need a lot of time alone, and hate to be pushed into social situations or constant time with others (even if it’s family). They want time alone; and often enjoy reading books, encyclopedias, and playing games. They’re very responsible children, so if you’re parenting one, try to reward them with increasing amounts of personal control as they get older. Show them that you appreciate their responsibility by rewarding it with trust. ISTJ children greatly want to be trusted.

The ESFJ Child

ESFJ children pair an aptitude for caring and sensitivity with a practical and realistic mindset. They long for love and appreciation; and like all SJ children, they crave structure, consistency, and familiarity. They adore their families and are very connected to their parents. ESFJ children are very affectionate and easily make friends and connections with others.
The unique childhood struggles of the ESFJ:
ESFJ children have a strong need for activity and socialization. They crave companionship and outlets for their energy, and if they’re paired with introverted parents they can often feel stifled or pushed aside. They also completely hate conflict, and it can cause them a huge amount of stress. They are extremely sensitive and can easily feel left out or rejected. If parents aren’t very affectionate towards them or demonstrative of their love, ESFJ children’s self-esteem can suffer greatly.
ESFJ children are natural worriers, and can often get stuck worrying about tragic events that could befall their friends or family members. Parents would be wise to reassure their children regularly of their love and that everything will be okay. ESFJs want to know that their parents “have their back” and will be there for them no matter what. These kids can’t get enough hugs and cuddles and affirmation. They thrive on this.

Like all SJ children, the unfamiliar is a scary place for ESFJs. If you’re parenting an ESFJ, try to preview new experiences for them, and relate things to familiar, past experiences. They also crave consistency, so be sure to follow through on your commitments and mean what you say. Wishy-washy parents are very frustrating to SJ children.

The ISFJ Child

ISFJ children are extremely loving, gentle and considerate. These quiet, thoughtful types long for close, nurturing relationships and a life that is secure and stable. These children long to be of service to others, and get a great deal of satisfaction from caring for others. They are very responsible and seek a harmonious life with their friends and family.
The unique childhood struggles of the ISFJ:
ISFJ children are very sensitive and gentle, and will find conflict-ridden environments extremely stressful. Confrontation of any kind is unsettling to them, and if they receive harsh discipline or shouting from a parent they can become highly distraught. They need things to be patiently and gently explained to them, and they need time to absorb the information.
ISFJs are often very shy around strangers, and this can be misinterpreted as disinterest or stiffness. They long for a few close friends, but can struggle with opening up to people or being confident enough to engage with others. This can leave them very lonely if their need for affirmation and friendship isn’t met. A parent can help by introducing them to other children to play with and acting as a helper for them to talk to other kids.
ISFJs want affirmation from their parents, they long to “belong” and feel secure in their family. If their parents aren’t very demonstrative of their love it can leave the young ISFJ feeling unloved. They may try to win their parents approval by serving more and doing more, and can then be left feeling tired and taken advantage of, or like nothing they do will ever be “good enough”.
ISFJs like a familiar, consistent routine in life. Unexpected changes like moving, family crises, or switching schools are very frightening and unsettling for them. They want to know what to expect, and how to prepare for what lies ahead. They also want a consistent parenting style, so  wishy washy parenting can be frustrating for them. They also have a very keen awareness of what’s fair, and because they are so servant-hearted they risk being taken advantage of in the family. If you’re parenting an ISFJ, keep a close eye on what they do and make sure to thank them. If your other kids aren’t doing the same amount to help out, try to re-evaluate things to make sure everything is fair and your ISFJ isn’t getting burned out.

The Adventurers – SP Types

The ESTP Child

ESTPs are full of excitement and energy; always on the go and eager to push the limits. These children are usually full of fun and laughter, making jokes and entertaining those around them. They are delightful, enthusiastic and adaptable. They make brilliant problem solvers and charismatic entertainers. They have huge reserves of energy and are usually daring and brave.
The unique childhood struggles of the ESTP:
ESTP children are extremely curious and impulsive, and have a hard time remembering or observing rules. They want to touch, taste, see, and smell everything. They probably get a lot more discipline than other types because they’re so impulsive and curious. They are often the recipients of exasperated parents anger, frustration, and potentially abuse. This can lead to a damaged self-esteem and feelings of frustration in young ESTPs. They require a lot of patience from parents, and do best with swift, consistent discipline that isn’t charged with anger. Many ESTPs recall being constantly spanked, hit, or yelled at as children because of their naturally impulsive, energetic personality. They respect discipline if it’s explained logically, calmly, and handled without the fury of anger.
ESTPs are very energetic, and have a hard time sitting still. They’re very distractable and aware of all that’s going on around them. School life is usually stressful and boring for ESTPs, who want to get up and “do” something. They are very intelligent children, but learn better in an active, hands-on environment. They probably feel like the life is draining out of them during long school days sitting at a desk. When they get home from school, it’s best to give them plenty of opportunities to get outside and run around and explore and move.
ESTPs are very blunt and even outrageous in their manner of speaking. They speak their minds without inhibition, but as a result sometimes say things they don’t really mean or unintentionally hurt others feelings. Because of this they can make and lose friends quickly, and may need some help learning tact and sensitivity from their parents.
Living in a very strict, confined, rigid household is very stressful for ESTPs who long to get out and be adventurous. Many times parents are so focused on the ESTPs moments of recklessness, that their contributions are sometimes ignored. If you’re parenting an ESTP, be attentive to their contributions and skills and reward them with more freedom and show them that you admire their energy, resourcefulness and zest for life.

The ISTP Child

ISTP children are highly independent, realistic children with incredible tactical abilities. They thrive in the physical world, where they can be adventurous and hands-on. They are logical and resourceful, but also generous and fun-loving children. They’ll love to get their hands on things and take them apart, put them together, and explore in a free, unrestricted environment.
The unique childhood struggles of the ISTP:
ISTPs, like all SP types, are driven by curiosity and a free spirit. They love to explore the world around them, seeing all that can be seen, and doing all that can be done. Being in a rigid, highly structured environment can be stressful for them because they want so much to be adventurous and to “do”. This also can create problems in school, where they are forced to sit still and concentrate for long periods of time. Listening isn’t the strongest skill of the ISTP, in fact prolonged listening is very difficult for them, so the school years tend to be very frustrating for them. They often are misdiagnosed, along with the other SP types, as having ADD or ADHD. Truly, they are ingenious in their skills and are highly intelligent; they just learn better through an active, hands-on lifestyle.
Growing up with Feeler type parents can be a blessing and a curse for ISTP children. While they enjoy the positivity and caring their parents provide, they can be confused by what they see as illogical, overly emotional behavior. If their parents try to explain things through feelings or emotion, it will only confuse and frustrate the young ISTP. This can also cause a problem in relationships, where an ISTP can unwittingly offend or insult other children and lose friendships. If you’re parenting an ISTP, it would be wise to model empathy and tactfulness, and help them understand other people’s feelings in a calm, logical way.
ISTPs are not naturally impressed or intimidated by people in authority; so a strict, authoritarian parent can be exasperating for them. They believe that respect should be earned, and don’t automatically grant respect based on “rank”. For this reason, ISTPS, along with most other SP children, often experience a lot of harsh discipline growing up. Unlike the SJs, who respect authority, SPs don’t understand why they should respect someone just because they’re older or bigger. This frequent discipline can eventually do great damage to their self esteem, or cause them to become harsh with others as they grow up.
ISTPs want to be trusted and allowed independence. As you see your ISTP child’s resourcefulness and are able to teach them the difference between risk taking and dangerous behaviors and being safe, you should allow them more independence and freedom.  Trying to hold them back can result in a defiant attitude and potentially dangerous rebellion. ISTPs are very competent and adaptable and are often very good at taking care of themselves.

The ESFP Child

ESFP children are the quintessential entertainers. They love to laugh and make other people laugh; they are probably the most extroverted of all the types, craving human connection constantly. They are down-to-earth, energetic children full of fun and enthusiasm. They live for the moment and are joyful optimists.
The unique childhood struggles of the ESFP:
ESFPs, like all SPs, live on impulse. Because of this they hate to have to wait around or sit still for very long. They have an abundance of energy, so school and being forced to sit still so long each day can prove quite frustrating to them. They are often misdiagnosed with ADD or ADHD because they find sitting still so aggravating. For this reason they usually dislike school, other than the social aspect. They can be quite intelligent, but like all other SPs, they learn better in an active, kinesthetic learning environment.
The ESFP living-for-the-moment mentality also means they can find rules and a rigid schedule very frustrating. They are very impulsive, so they often forget rules in favor of how they feel ‘right now’. This can land them in a lot of scrapes as children, and they can get disciplined much more than other types. ESFPs really crave approval and affection, so discipline that is done in anger (harsh spankings, yelling, etc,.) can be very damaging to their self-esteem and they can wind up feeling like they never do anything right.
ESFPs love being around people, and will find being cooped up in the house upsetting. They want to go out and have fun with everyone else, and interact. They love to get reactions out of people and as kids can be loud and get right up in people’s faces in their animation and exuberance. This can be great if their parents are a similar type, but this can also frustrate a lot of parents and the excitable young ESFPs can be constantly told to “be quiet”, and to “sit still” which leaves them with an abundance of bottled up energy. Getting these children involved in sports or the arts (dancing, music, drama) can be a great way for them to use their energy and express their sensory entertaining side.

The ISFP Child

ISFP children are gentle free-spirits who are easy-going and compassionate. They are highly sensitive and often have a knack for art, music and style. They love beauty, and have a desire to make beautiful things. They care deeply for their families and friends and live to make the best of each moment.
The unique childhood struggles of the ISFP:
ISFPs are highly sensitive and easily get hurt feelings as children; yelling, spankings, or criticism of any kind can make them feel very vulnerable and stressed. They want lots of snuggles, cuddles and approval, and if they don’t receive it as children it can make them feel very insecure and sad. However, at heart, like all SPs, ISFPs are optimists, and will try to look at what is positive in their lives.
ISFPs are extremely sensory, and love to touch and feel everything. They also are somewhat impulsive, and rules are easily forgotten. For this reason they can face a lot of discipline and they take that very hard. They also can feel stifled in an environment that is highly structured and rigid; they like to have a low-key lifestyle without a lot of demands on their time.
ISFPs usually love TV and videogames, and find school to often be boring and frustrating. Although they want to please their parents and teachers, they have a tendency to underachieve. They tend to only place importance on the practical and immediate needs, and often feel misunderstood or looked over in school settings. They can also face parents who are less than pleased with their academic performance or their personal pursuits. They may feel that they are never “good enough” to please the people most important to them.  ISFPs can be highly intelligent, but learn best in a hands-on, active learning environment.
ISFPs struggle with planning ahead; they live in the moment, like other SPs and are better at being adaptable. For this reason, long detailed projects and tasks are overwhelming for them. Parents of ISFP children could help by breaking down projects for them into workable segments so that they don’t get as overwhelmed.
ISFPs need approval and support growing up; otherwise life is a scary and formidable experience. They care very much what other people think of them, and will often spend a great deal of time choosing the right clothes or brushing their teeth. They want to make a good impression on others, and because they are so sensory by  nature, the way they look matters a lot to them. Don’t confuse this with vanity, ISFPs have a great understanding of beauty and like to incorporate that part of their personality into their dress.
ISFPs are very sensitive and will have a hard time dealing with conflict of any kind. When faced with hurt feelings, they may become very dramatic and misread things entirely. They may jump to conclusions and feel like someone hates them who merely disagrees with them. They have a tendency to hold grudges; and can use a lot of help from parents in learning to manage their emotions and not take things so hard.

The Dreamers – NF Types

The ENFJ Child

ENFJ children are sunny and enthusiastic, blending creativity and warmth in an unforgettable way. They are highly sociable little children, loving to make others happy and striving for harmony in all their relationships. They, like all NF types, have a very strong belief system that they hold very dear. They are expressive and thoughtful; often very popular with other kids. Like all NF types, ENFJ children are highly imaginative and prone to daydreaming.
The unique childhood struggles of the ENFJ:
ENFJ children are highly sociable and get much energy from being around people. Being alone or cooped up in the house will be excruciating for these types. For this reason, if they’re part of a more introverted family they can feel that their needs aren’t met; or if they are met, they can spend so much time shuttling from one activity to another that it exhausts them.
ENFJs so much want to make others happy and are so afraid of hurting anyone’s feelings, that they may make decisions that aren’t in their best interests and suffer for it later. As they get older, they will need help learning how to be true to themselves even if it means disrupting the harmony of everyone else sometimes. They are so sensitive to the moods and feelings of others, that they absorb them into themselves. Conflict and distress in the lives of others will be absorbed by the ENFJ and it’s almost as if they are feeling the distress of others deep within themselves. Things like divorce in the family, death of a loved one, or any kind of conflict is taken very hard by these highly sensitive types.
ENFJ children are very affectionate and love to express their feelings freely. They will want to hug and cuddle with their friends and family members, but our culture sends strong messages about this affection being inappropriate. Because ENFJs are very concerned with being true to their hearts, they may feel they have to stifle a part of themselves to “fit in” to American culture and not be as affectionate and expressive as they naturally are.
ENFJs are extremely sensitive to criticism; and negative words have a deep impact on them. They take criticism extremely personally, and as a result, can feel sometimes that their families or loved ones don’t really love them after a dispute. They idealize their relationships and can feel tormented with ideas of abandonment when they are criticized. It would be wise for parents of ENFJs to frequently express their unchanging love for their child; especially before a punishment or criticism.

The INFJ Child

INFJ children are dreamers in every sense of the word. They are highly imaginative and creative, and also very private and protective of their inner worlds. They are often quiet, gentle and sensitive, but if one of their values is questioned they can instantly become fiery, passionate and (sometimes) stubborn. They are very intellectual and empathetic, concerned with the world and everyone in it. They are always looking to understand the meaning of everything that touches their lives; feeling that it is all connected somehow.
The unique childhood struggles of the INFJ:
INFJs live inside a rich inner world. They thrive on the ability to use their imagination, to analyze, and to ponder. For this reason, things like interruptions, being part of a more extroverted family, or sudden changes in plans can greatly upset them. They get so caught up in their thoughts that to be interrupted or pulled in a different direction is very stressful for them. This may also make it harder for them to concentrate on projects that don’t fall in line with their inner world; and although they want to please their teachers, they can often struggle with the more rote aspects of school.
INFJs are often very shy as children; but also very much want to be liked or to have one or two very close friends. They can often have a hard time making friends because of their intensely private natures; although they are usually well-liked by their peers because of their warmth and sincerity.
INFJs derive strength and nourishment from being able to spend time alone daydreaming. This is often suppressed by parents and the world, who are more concerned with “getting things done”. However, this isn’t just a desire for an INFJ, it’s a need.  Their dominant function is introverted intuition, which is often accessed through ‘daydreaming’, and without being able to use it they can feel a huge amount of stress; as anyone does when they can’t regularly access their dominant function. Imagine how damaging it would be to tell an ESFJ (the most common type in females) to not care about other people’s feelings anymore. Because many can’t see the practical purpose of introverted intuition (plenty of people can see the practical purpose of caring about feelings or thinking logically) INFJs are often told to get out of their heads, stop daydreaming, and get to work on the sensory aspects of life. For this reason, the  use of their dominant function is often stifled during childhood. They make up only 1-2{b75a4a6005db7822c82f3e33dad0e4d58697da6786c21fbe97332e94bc283cbb} of the population, and because of a lack of understanding can often grow up feeling misunderstood, and forced into a box that just doesn’t “fit them”.
If you’re parenting an INFJ, try to make sure you give your child plenty of time to think and daydream. Try to protect them from a demanding and high-speed world by creating private times and places they can go to be alone.  It’s best not to interrupt an INFJ when they’re working on a project or thinking hard about something (unless you have to). Their mind is so busy making connections and so focused on their idea that, when interrupted, it feels to them like all their finely tuned internal pieces have just been scattered everywhere. They can lose interest in the project altogether and become very frustrated. They are perfectionists as well, and hold themselves to such a high standard that they can get frustrated easily while trying to perfect their projects and ideas.
INFJs intensely hate conflict; like all extraverted feelers, they absorb others emotions within themselves. They greatly desire harmony in their outer world, and if someone is stressed or unhappy they will feel it inside and do whatever they can to make things harmonious again. For this reason, divorce, fighting, or any kind of anger is taken very hard by them. They also take criticism very personally, and can often feel insecure in a family where their feelings aren’t handled carefully by those around them.
INFJ children have a hard time understanding their own emotions, but can easily pick up on other people’s emotions. For this reason, they can easily get overwhelmed or confused about how they feel. Along with INTJs, INFJs are the most likely to experience health problems as a result of internalizing stress and emotions.

The ENFP Child

ENFP children are some of the most enthusiastic and insatiably curious of all the types. They constantly dream of what is possible, and are overflowing with ideas and energy. They are very sensitive and imaginative, wanting to share all their thoughts and dreams with the world. They are eager to make friends and connect with others. They have an adventurous spirit; longing to explore the world and new environments.
The unique childhood struggles of the ENFP:
Focus and concentration don’t come easily to most ENFPs. They are so full of ideas and possibilities, that they often get lost in a trail of thoughts. This makes school often frustrating for them, where they are forced to sit still and concentrate on one task at a time. Their enthusiasm for every possibility also means they can take on more projects than they can realistically finish, which can lead to them being overwhelmed. They have a playful, boisterous enthusiasm that makes them endearing children, but can lend itself to trouble in school.
ENFPs as children often have trouble with self-discipline and can procrastinate, leaving important tasks till the last minute. This can breed a sort of chaos around them that can be overwhelming to them and those who live with them. Parents should try to offer gentle reminders, early in the process, in a private and encouraging manner to help them keep on task with their endeavors. However, as they get older, it’s wise to let ENFPs learn to rescue themselves and form their own way of managing projects.
ENFPs are on the sensitive side as children. They easily get their feelings hurt, and can often fall into depression. In public they may seem as enthusiastic, playful and active as ever, but in private they can be quite worried, depressed, and fearful. They are prone to self-blame and bouts of depression, and could use gentle encouragement from parents regularly of their love and acceptance. They are very empathetic children and will stand up for other kids who are bullied or lonely.
ENFPs long very much to be able to express their thoughts and ideas; and if they’re raised in a more Sensor/Judger type environment, they can often feel stifled and misunderstood. Sensors may not see the point in the ENFPs theoretical ideas or abstract ramblings, and can cut them off short, or label them as “flighty”. ENFP children are very intelligent and insightful, but are often cast aside as “ditzy” or “dreamy” by parents who don’t share the same nature.

The INFP Child

INFP children are some of the most intensely private and deeply passionate of all the types. On the surface they may seem cool and reserved, but inside they have an intensity of feeling and strongly held values. They are quiet, serious and highly sensitive children who deeply care about those close to them. They usually have a rich fantasy life and are naturally creative. They strongly desire to understand the meaning of life and love to express themselves in artistic ways; through music, writing, poetry, dance, or theater.
The unique childhood struggles of the INFP:
INFP children are highly sensitive and live life with a certain emotional vulnerability. They are easily hurt by real or perceived insensitivity, and they can struggle with irrational fears in response to this. They can feel insecure and as if they are betrayed by those they hold dear. In order to protect themselves, they have a tendency to hold grudges and have a hard time forgiving and forgetting. They are introverted feelers, which means they are very aware of their own feelings; but have a harder time understanding feelings that are foreign to them. While they are empathetic and compassionate individuals, they may not be able to separate constructive criticism from actual dislike. They may take discipline very hard as a result and they may be hurt by things that weren’t intended to be hurtful. It is important that parents remind the young INFP that they are loved and accepted for who they are, and that criticism does not mean dislike.
INFP children quickly become bored with routine and a rigid structure. They like to mix work and play, and may often have half-finished projects that are abandoned when something new comes along. They are so drawn to alternative paths of discovery that they can struggle with meeting deadlines for homework and can have a hard time staying on task in school. They can get very frustrated and overwhelmed by a world that naturally is more in tune with a sensor/judger-type mindset.
Because INFPs are so internally focused and thoughtful, they aren’t always very aware of what’s going on around them unless it involves someone or something that is personally meaningful to them. They can frequently forget things like homework, or their backpacks. This may also lend itself to the INFP being somewhat clumsy and awkward. Some INFPs do excel at athletics; but it is usually because they have made this something personally meaningful to them and given it great attention.
INFP children long for harmony and good-will in their family; and will become very distressed if there is conflict. They may cry easily as children, and because they are so private feel very embarrassed by this outward display of emotion. Male INFPs in particular often face scrutiny or bullying for their sensitivity and emotional nature. Parents of INFPs would be wise to encourage their children, and to accept them how they are; let them know their feelings are perfectly normal and that you accept them just how they are.
INFP children are easily distracted, and often have to be reminded to finish things. They are so internally focused that if they’re feeling upset, worried, or have their minds on anything else they may not even hear what’s going on around them. Their feelings are the loudest thing they hear. They care very deeply about others, but can struggle with getting out of their own heads or their own feelings to reach out to others. That said, they are excellent listeners when engaged in one-on-one conversation and can listen intentionally much longer than many of the other types can.

The Investigators – NT Types

The ENTJ Child

ENTJ children are fiercely independent, logical, strong-willed and ambitious. They are driven by intellectual curiosity and a need to master everything they try. These creative and inventive children are full of energy, excitement and challenge. They are born leaders, and instinctually see ways of getting things done and have great energy for accomplishing tasks. They are extremely determined and outspoken with a great amount of self-confidence.
The unique childhood struggles of the ENTJ
ENTJs rely intensely on their logic and thinking; because of this they are very uncomfortable with the world of feelings and emotions. They hate to cry and will do whatever possible to not seem vulnerable. Because of this, during moments where their emotions show, they can feel intense shame afterwards. Having a parent who can help them understand that these emotions are normal and not something to be ashamed of is essential; it’s also wise to not fuss over them when they’re in an emotional state, because this will only make them feel more humiliated. This same discomfort with feelings means that they can be unintentionally insensitive to others frequently growing up; hurting feelings or coming across as a know-it-all or judgmental. Parents would be wise to model empathy and tactfulness for ENTJ children, and to rephrase insensitive comments back to them.
ENTJs always crave a challenge, and are highly ambitious. Because of this they can often “bite off more than they can chew” and get overwhelmed with a huge amount of obligations and responsibilities. They don’t like to accept help with their projects either, because that would make it impossible for them to enjoy the pride of accomplishing something on their own.
ENTJs long for more and more freedom and independence. They are so self-determined that they long to have complete control of their environment. While this can be a wonderful thing for them; they rise to any challenge you place before them, it can also mean they grow up too quickly and don’t enjoy the beautiful innocence and experiences of childhood. This yearning for control can also cause them to butt heads with their parents over rules and responsibilities they see as trivial.

The INTJ Child

INTJ children are highly creative and intellectual, yearning to understand the truth of the universe. These quiet, serious children are intensely curious about why things are the way they are, and they long for logic and truth in everything they do. They have a rich inner life  and love the fantasy and scientific world, learning as much as possible about things that interest them.
The unique childhood struggles of the INTJ
INTJ children, along with INFJs, have a low threshold for outside stimulation. In order for them to think clearly and be at peace, they need things to be quiet and peaceful. While others may think they are wasting time daydreaming, this quiet time inside their own mind is often spent conceiving their most ingenious thoughts and ideas. Having to be forced out of their minds into an extroverted world, or by cause of interruption, is highly frustrating to them.  They need to be allowed privacy and solitude to thrive.
INTJ children can be quite independent and stubborn, and often struggle with respecting an authority unless they feel that respect has been earned. They are rarely persuaded to do things they don’t want to do, or don’t believe in. This can lead to them butting heads with a parent or authority figure. They respect others who earn their respect using honesty and truth and logic; not rank or age. They have a strong sense of what is fair and don’t hesitate from putting up a fight if they feel they have been unfairly accused or misjudged. They also have such a strong need to be right that they can have a hard time backing down from an argument or admitting a mistake. Because of their strong independent nature, parents of INTJs would be wise to give them a lot of responsibility, and opportunities to prove they can take care of themselves. Explain the basic parameters of what is needed or expected, and then allow them to determine how to live independently in those lines.
INTJ children are so internally focused on their thoughts and ideas, that they don’t care too much about “fitting in” with society as a whole. Because of this, they can often seem aloof or uncaring and may have a hard time gracefully navigating through the complicated waters of human interaction. They can care very deeply about their loved ones, but aren’t prone to be very demonstrative of their love. They may end up being berated by more feeling-type parents for their lack of social graces or because they weren’t nice enough to “dear old Aunt Lucy”. This can be a frustrating experience for INTJs who don’t see the practical purpose of small talk, social niceties, and pretending to be something they’re not.

The ENTP Child

ENTPs are friendly, energetic children who are driven by their imagination and curiosity towards anything new, different, and exciting. They are driven to be innovative and are often full of fun and good humor. They have a natural charm and cleverness that shows itself through their storytelling ability, clever puns, and engaging presence. They are very spirited and insightful, and enjoy debating with others to get to the truth of any matter.
The unique childhood struggles of the ENTP
ENTP children are naturally skeptical and are rarely convinced of anything without rational reasoning or logical consequences. They are very opinionated and can be argumentative, which can lead them to being called bossy or arrogant. They often feel misunderstood in this; in their minds they are merely trying to point out an inconsistency and can’t stand to see a flaw in any position or argument. This may cause them to butt heads with other children, teachers, or their parents.
ENTPs may seem messy or disorganized, and they have a hard time following through on all their commitments. They love to stay open to new ideas and to be adaptable, and so they resist structure and limits. This can cause great frustration to them and their parents, when they are constantly having to rush to get a project done or be told over and over again to keep their room clean. ENTP parents should remember that ENTPs can be highly inventive in a state of perceived “chaos”, and possibly allow them a little space for disorder.
ENTPs are very sociable and outgoing, and will get frustrated being cooped up at home. They love to have an audience, and love a good pair of listening ears for all their ideas and plans. They are often very popular for their imagination and optimism. ENTPs are independent children who are very anxious to get on their own two feet and to be in control of their lives. They may push for bedtimes to be later, and more freedom to go places and experience things. If they live under very strict parents they can feel stifled and disrespected because of the lack of freedom. They greatly desire to be seen as competent, so being treated their age can be very irritating to them.

The INTP Child

INTPs are one of the most intensely curious of all the children. They are driven by a need to understand the world, and are extremely independent and strong-willed. They are incredibly logical and matter-of-fact, and are very skeptical of established facts or theories. They love to question and explore alternatives, and often have original, ingenious ideas. They are adaptable and easy-going, and usually have a fun, offbeat sense of humor.
The unique childhood struggles of the INTP
INTPS are natural skeptics, who are driven by a need for logic and truth. Because of this, they have a naturally argumentative style that is often at odds with their parents authority. They question everything, and with very strict parents can often feel stifled and held down. For them, as with the other NT types, respect needs to be earned, not automatically given. They don’t mind disagreeing with an authority figure if they see something that doesn’t make logical sense. Because of this, they can end up getting frequently punished because the parent sees them as being disrespectful to their authority. This can be quite frustrating for the INTP child who just wants to get to the truth of the matter at hand.
INTPs see many possibilities and ideas everywhere, and in school find it hard to stay focused. They hate the repetition and routine, and want a steep learning curve. They are usually highly intelligent, and don’t care that much about grades or what their teachers think of them. They are usually much more intelligent than their teachers are aware of, because they don’t feel the need to “prove” their intelligence. They may get so bored during school that they scribble down answers without thinking, and get poor grades as a result. In their minds they have more important things to be thinking about than the same sums day after day after day. This can lead to problems at school or at home, with parents or teachers who judge the child as incompetent or lazy. Parents of INTPs do best to pay attention to what areas of interest their child has, and to encourage and support their child in pursuit of that interest or goal. They can learn quite a lot by discovering all there is to know about an interest they have.
INTPs are easily overwhelmed by too much noise and talking. They live life primarily inside their own heads, and find noise and lecturing a constant interruption. Because they are so internal, they can often come across as clumsy or slow. They really aren’t slow, but each time they are asked to engage they have to forcefully pull themselves out of their own thoughts and ideas. Too much noise or sensory stimulation is overwhelming for them, and as very young children can display tantrums in reaction to sensory overload. They may bury their heads in a pillow and scream or just isolate themselves from all noise.
One major issue that INTPs deal with is that they think through things logically, and without a lot of emotion or feeling. They find themselves confused by other people’s feelings and emotions, and have a hard time understanding social niceties. They are often misunderstood because of this and reprimanded for not using manners or engaging in small talk. This can be very frustrating for them.
One sad fact is that INTPs are the most likely type to be misdiagnosed with autism or aspergers.  The world often doesn’t see how insightful and intelligent these children are, and merely tries to force them into a mold that is more “normal”. There’s a possibility that INTPs are more likely than other types to live with aspergers or autism, but so far my research has been inconclusive on this.

The Best Age For You to Get Married According to Your Zodiac Sign


As an Aries, you’re all about living in the moment. You’re a thrill-seeker, always craving that rush of adrenaline. You love spontaneity, and because of that, you have a tendency to rush into things without thinking. For marriage, it may be best to hold off until the age of 30.


As a Taurus, consistency and stability are essential for any successful marriage. The secret to maintaining a happy, long-term relationship is for you and your partner to stay committed to one another. Taking it slow and steady will ensure that both of your needs are met, leading to a lasting and loving relationship. Developing such a commitment requires a substantial amount of time and energy, which is why the ideal time for you to marry would be your early 30s.


A Gemini has a very peculiar approach to marriage. You’ve always been a very decisive person and known exactly what you want out of life. You’re adept at making major decisions and committing to them. But when it comes to marriage, you’re finally caught in a standstill. That’s why the best age for you to marry is 35.


As the ruler of the fourth house of “home and security,” Cancers are the nurturers of the zodiac; they love the idea of marriage and the family dynamic and typically want to get married young.

As a Scorpio, you are profoundly immature. In fact, you are the polar opposite of a Libra. You have a very unhealthy perspective on relationships, and your actions tend to drive away potential partners.  You need to take the time to work on yourself first before you begin working on any relationship, which is why you should marry when you’re in your 40s.


A Sagittarius loves their freedom, which is why you aren’t keen on tying the knot anytime soon. You aren’t really fond of long-term relationships or commitments, but you are a practical person who understands the benefits of marriage.

Like the Sagittarius, you aren’t a fan of commitment—but you are smart and pragmatic, and you understand the value of married life. However, you want as much time as possible to have your fun before settling down, which is why the ideal age for you to marry is in your 40s.


Pisces are born romantics. You hate being alone, and you crave the company of others. You aren’t interested in short-term relationships, no, you’re looking to settle down. You are loyal, devoted, and you’re ready to commit, no matter what it takes. The best time for you to marry is in your early 20s.
