    What does depressive/ anxious INTJ-A look like?

    Hello!

    I want to know the characteristic of INTJ-As when they have an anxiety or depression.

    If you guys experienced some of that would be welcome.

    Thank you.

    In my experience, when I'm anxious, I('m)...
    1. quieter, and when I do speak it's more cutthroat and blunt than normal.
    2. start to tremble a bit, especially with my hands.
    3. usually cut my connections with the outside world because I can't handle any more stress.

    If it's depressed me, I('m)...
    1. far quieter, and when I do speak, it's very little words.
    2. don't move at all, generally unresponsive and seemingly asleep.
    3. same as the other (3) but for the reason that I can't make the effort to communicate with others.

    Hope that helps.

    Anxious is probably the typical signs of being anxious:
    - Seemingly unease, nervous
    - Avoidant
    etc

    I have physical tells that my wife will notice almost immediately now if I become stressed or anxious:

    I will rub my thumb on the side of my middle finger in a circular motion.
    If we are lying on the couch or in bed, I will fidget with my feet.
    Also, my physical demeanor will become very guarded and prickly.

    Too bad it takes an expert to distinguish this from ordinary INTJ behaviour.

    I'm not an INTJ-A, but I would imagine, they'd look a lot like an INTJ-T.

    I imagine they'd look a lot like me.

    Probably not a very helpful response, but, it's also devoid of a lot of bullshit. For what it's worth.

    Apart from what other people wrote: I find it difficult to focus and think clearly so I find it difficult to talk well. For example, I misuse words and correct myself or I don't finish sentences and start new ones. I have problems switching between languages.

    When I experience stress over a prolonged period of time and especially if there's a specific source of this stress I'm on the verge of tears even thinking about it.

    But I don't think it's typical INTJ. Actually there's a body of research saying that depression impacts on memory.
