bipolar disorder

  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    I have Bipolar Disorder, in a mild form, and I seem to alternate between INTP and INFP. I think this is, in part, due to my disorder. I fluctuate between the mild depression stage and hyper mania stage which produces a poor self image on one hand and a grandiose, narcissistic view on the other...
  2. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi there! (WARNING: RANT AHEAD) I've recently figured out that the reason I'm my emotions and everything is going all over the place for the past four years is because I have bipolar disorder. Ever since I've started researching it more and reflecting on which symptoms I relate to, it feels...

    Is there anyone else out there that has this disorder? I am interested in hearing about your experiences. I was recently diagnosed and I am interested in the topic
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Greetings mates, In the early 2000s I was diagnosed as bipolar II, which is a more "mild" form of bipolar I disorder (see WebMD for a good primer on this disorder), and in 2008 (I think) is when I took the Myers-Briggs test as a requirement for entry into graduate school and found that I was a...
  5. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I was wondering out there if INTJs get bipolar disorder. I'm an INTJ with bipolar and I get frequent mood swings. I'm taking depakote and respirdal for my moods. Anyway, any comments?
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I started this thread to shed some light on recognizing and helping to treat infj's with bipolar disorder type II , particularly the down cycle, major depression. It is a serious disease, and I very much want to get some information out into the open where it can be of use to those who are, or...

    Small voices cry distinctly in the distance. Are these people on the streets outside my home? They could be miles away…They could be spirits. My mind needing to rationalize these sounds falls deeper into delusion. “She’s thinking”, one says. Was I? “She’s evil!” It’s not good to hear this...

    I haven’t been sleeping well. The voices of my mom and step-dad are in my head late into the night. Always talking about me. Always determining my fate. “She knows Donna!” “She doesn’t know Bob!” What I do or do not know is always up to question in my mind. My most common delusion being that...

  10. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Newbie over here. Hello and THANK YOU all for your contributions to this amazing site. I'm an E/INFJ who is in a bit of a pickle. My intuitive side has been overpowering these days. I'd like to be able to harness it while being patient with my family and friends who simply don't "get" it...

    I am fifteen years old and my mother is thirty five. She is more emotionally unstable and mentally immature than I am, I believe. Why? Here's a little of what she does: Cries a lot if someone doesn't agree with her. Has completely shut down and will ignore me most of the time for her TV...
  12. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi there. I'll apologize for the nature of this topic in advance. But basically after a very strange few weeks at uni culminating last night with let's say, a funny turn.. ENFPs with bipolar disorder and similar mental/emotional illnesses, how do you experience these? What was the onset of...
  13. General Psychology
    I've had a general interest in typing something like this for awhile, though that's also been characterized by a lot of general reluctance for a few reasons; I suppose most specifically I feel a bit guilty about most of what I want to state, and don't want the general quality of my character...
  14. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    So I'm 19 and when I first took the MBTI test last year it gave me a sense of identity that I never had before. I finally understood why I was so different from other people and it was something that was bugging me for as long as I can remember. The problem though is I am Bipolar type 1. Being...

    Pyroluria anyone have this problem or think they have it? Apparently 50% of people with mental illnesses have this condition and only 10% of people who have Pyroluria DON'T have a mental illness. I am currently being treated for this with suppliments - hope it works! What is pyroluria...
