    Are INTP's more likely to have depression/ anxiety?

    Hey,
    I heard that INTP's are more likely than other types to have depression or anxiety.
    I suffer from both but I wanted to know if it's related to my type or not.
    So it would be really nice if you just comment your type and your expirience with mental health.

    Thanks.

    Fi doms seem to have higher depression rates as well, a constant internal struggle within for Fi and Ti, I'd guess. Fi doms will internalize emotions and bottle it up rather that expressing thoughts or emotions in more healthy manner to get them out, suppressing them, which builds and wears on the mind.

    You have supposed INFP geniuses in their craft like Kurt Cobain and David Foster Wallace who figured death was a better alternative than the shit-show of existence, constantly struggling internally after first trying to escape with drugs and alcohol. Sometimes there just doesn't seem to be an escape to being a Fi dom, and persisiting through the madness of your own mind can be tiresome and debilitating.

    any introverted judgement function would be likely contender for depression and anxiety, Ti more anxiety, Fi more depression... imo

    nearly every IxxP i have known is some kinda depressed or anxious...

    the problem seems to be, they have a very positive view of the world but a shitty view of themselves...

    me? I see the world as a very shitty, unfair, unjust, cruel place... but im pretty fuckin awesome, and you're pretty fuckin awesome, so lets go do awesome things despite the world.

    the IxxP's tell me, my view of the world sounds sad and shitty, but they are the ones who are depressed so... *shrug*
