  1. Artist’s Dismal Dilemma

    The Art Museum
    I want to warn you that my posting may be melancholic to some, but sometimes this is how I feel. I am what I don't want to be, which is an artist, I used to work but tired out quickly, faltering in the normal lines of work. I became a painter shortly after developing my unique skill of painting...
  2. [INFP] How savage are you and what are you savage about?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have a tumblr about being autistic, cuz I'm autistic, and I'm not really shy to throw shade at Autism Speaks, Autism Warrior Parents, anti-vaxxers (*cough, cough* Jenny McCarthy *cough, cough*). I mean, they've spoken over us for years, infantilized us, demonized us, etc,. So turnabout is fair...
  3. [INTP] INTPs and Female Aspies; What is the Difference? (Also INTJs, ISTJs, and ENTJs)

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I came across this unofficial list written by a woman who has been around a lot of female aspies.* What's the difference between the things on this list and your average INTP bear? I'm seeing a lot of similarities, but I think the motivating reasons might be different. I also see a lot of...
  4. [INTJ] INTJ Men with High-functioning Autism or Asperger's, please respond...

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Do you ever have the tendency to not know that you're feeling deep feelings for someone until you've inadvertently hurt them by saying there wasn't a connection (when there was. we talked every day and had been physical after a revelation of feelings), there was an emotional ending to your...
  5. Am I an INFP or would I be something else?

    What's my personality type?
    So I filled out this questionnaire: 1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type? I guess, even though I often fit the stereotypes, I can also be vey loud, sometimes too open, and I love some attention. It’s one reason I love theatre/performing and why I’m majoring in it. I'm...
  6. [INFP] Any autistic INFPs?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    It doesn't seem to be a common type around autistics, so I feel kinda out of place. Is anyone else here an autistic INFP? How can those two work together?

  9. High IQ people more likely to be diagnosed mentally ill, autistic, attention deficit

    General Psychology
    From the Independent: There's more in the article itself, but...This was something I had long suspected would be the case. I remember a quote from Dostoevsky's "Notes From Underground", "I am convinced that to be acutely conscious is a disease. A real, honest-to-goodness disease." so it seems...
  10. Guess my type, step by step.

    What's my personality type?
    Hey everybody, I'm a Russian Asperger's teenager, age 18. I'm unsure with my personality type (I have both E and I parts, S and N, T and F, but probably I am more of a P than a J), but it's hard for me to remember and list all of my personality parts in a single topic, so let's just start...
  11. [INFJ] A Counselor Wishing to Be a Counselor

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone! I'm going to be a freshman in college in a few months and I feel deeply connected to becoming an ABA therapist. ABA, or applied behavior analysis, is a sort of therapy used commonly for individuals with autism. I read Mark Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"...
  12. Autistic Children use too much Peripheral Vision?

    General Psychology
    In my association with an autistic boy, it appears he was always using peripheral vision when observing me and others. This is the case that when he stares at one thing, in reality he is looking at something else in his vision. The over-dependence on peripheral vision makes him appear like he is...
  13. When someone is obviously mentally ill, why provoke and antagonize them? Why bully?

    Blog
    I will never understand why people seem to gang up on or feel compelled to antagonize those who are obviously struggling with mental disorders. What do you hope to accomplish by taunting them? It certainly doesn't help them when you do this? Can't you put aside your disdain long enough to try...
  14. Those diagnosed on autism spectrum - what's your E-type?

    Anyone who's been professionally diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder or any of the previous autism diagnoses that have now been collapsed into ASD, including Asperger's Syndrome and PDD-NOS. If you're fairly sure of it, what's your Enneagram type? If you want to, please also post your...
  15. A Piece of a Puzzle - MBTI Meets ASD

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I work with kids and adults on the autism spectrum. One of my clients is an INTP. That got me thinking; what are the most common personality types of those on the autism spectrum? If you have experience working with ASD individuals, weigh in with your opinion of what types and functions are...
  16. Where does the line draw between being extremely introverted and having Asperger's?

    General Psychology
    I have a few relatives who think it would be a good idea if I get tested for Asperger's Syndrome. I'm extremely introverted, always have been and always will. My question is where does the line draw from being (extremely) introverted and having Asperger's Syndrome? I'm not just extremely...
  17. ISFP or INFP? I filled in a questionnaire.

    What's my personality type?
    Hey :happy: I'm pretty sure I'm either an ISFP or an INFP. I used to be quite sure I was an INFP, or at least I settled on that being my type. But I've done some more online tests lately (I used to do the same one, only over and over again), and most of them actually give me ISFP. When I read...
  18. New user: Seeking input regarding Asperger's and MBTI/Socionics

    Intro
    Hello, Personality People. I have been researching Autism Spectrum/Asperger's individuals and their associations with personality classification. I have Asperger's, and I am INTP with an extremely strong N. I am also ILI. Usually Aspies are considered very concrete thinkers, so I'm wondering...

I'm diagnosed with autism and manic depression, and some other stuff like bpd, anxiety disorders, and bipolar disorder has been thrown out there. But the first two are what I am sure about. Because...
