    I just got an invitation to go back to my summer job (from May to September) and I'm not sure whether to go back or not. I did three years perfectly fine, then one year I worked a month and was hospitalized for a suicide attempt and was told not to go back, so I didn't and I got on disability...

    Hi everyone! I am an ENFJ and I struggle with bipolar. Being an ENFJ, interaction with others is hugely important to me and largely defines how I view myself. Being bipolar, I have extreme mood swings and am periodically prone to manic or depressed episodes. My ENFJ sister has a term she uses...

  7. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Here is the trubble baby brothers, I am hyperactive and impulsive. I also believe I could be bipolar, but I was wondering if it was more of an ENTP thing to be that ''annoying person''. You know when you talk way too much and you want to shut up, but instead you yell? Or when you start...

    I suffer from Bipolar I which means I cycle from mania, mixed, and depression. My baseline type if I were 'normal' would probably be INFJ but since I have polar moods, I find that I often change MBTI types. Mania - ENFJ Mixed - ENTJ Normal -INFJ Depressed - INTJ I've always been a...

    This might be a tad specific but basically over the last few years I have been struggling with severe depression and mood swings. I've recently sought help and have been diagnosed as bipolar 1. This diagnosis has cleared up soo many unaswered questions about who I really am. One thing that...

    I never really thought the way I lived was weird until my best friends mom (diagnosed with bipolar) told my best friend that she thinks I'm bipolar too. When I found this out I was fascinated and curious so I looked into symptoms and such. To me they sounded like normal everyday life (another...

    Downward Spiral It’s been happening for months. Whatever this is. All I know is I’m going crazy and I can’t look people in the eye. My teacher has to talk to me after class about speaking up and maintaining eye contact with my patients during clinical. I try my hardest to show her I’m...

    I'm an ESFJ and the MBTI theory is more interesting to me than most things I read about online... I read and learn new stuff about MBTI all the time... I have Dyslexia - I have to reread about things over and over to truly understand them, OCD - 60mg of Prozac daily is taking care of this...

    I'd like my title to be self containing. What do you think about the idea of practising mania or hypomania, or at least finding the space appropriate for it? What can be made appropriate? (I don't think people pertaining to Bipolar disorder are the only ones who ought to relate to this; that...
  20. Intro
    For years, I thought something wasn't right with me. I was so confused as to why I felt "tuned in" to everyone and everything around me and yet nobody around me seemed to notice anything. I took this and ran with it, thinking my calling in life was to become an anthropologist, and so I did. I...
