  1. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Has anyone encountered the problem of being an ENFP, so naturally inclined to be social and want to connect with people, but with a chronic illness that severely limits your options for being social? I have been dealing with this for a long time. I desperately want to engage in the few...
  2. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    This other thread about INTJs and sunglasses got me thinking because many INTJs stated that they wear them because their eyes are sensitive, so now I wonder whether INTJs may be overall more sensitive when it comes to body or health in general. I don't think that I am sickly person but in...
  3. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I've been thinking about this for a couple of months now. I have Complex PTSD and it seems like a lot of the symptoms of C-PTSD correlate with an INTP's personality. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complex_post-traumatic_stress_disorder Just a random thought. Tell me what you think.
  4. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm an INTP and I curious if there's any mental disorders that seem to be more common. I have Depersonalization/Derealization disorder and Social anxiety. I'm wondering if there's any common denominators between other INTP's and Mental illnesses.
  5. General Psychology
    okay, To elaborate what I mean- When I say mental illness I include disorders as well, But What I'm trying to communicate is at what point, is something considered a mental illness rather than say- a personality trait? Am I making sense? At one point does a set of behaviours become seperate...

  7. Sex and Relationships
    I have been talking to this guy on meetme.com. Not really the best place to meet people, but you can find some cool people in your area. So long story short, this guy that I had plans with tonight told me to leave him alone after I told him that I have an autoimmune condition and have been...
  8. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Sorry for this desperate post but i kind of have no idea what to do. I can't talk to people anymore, and it's not because i'm not trying. I do but it always ends up weird and short. They feel uncomfortable around me. Somehow i'm not able to get along with human anymore... Any advice ?
  9. Book, Music, & Movie Reviews
    Has anybody read or heard of Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America by Robert Whitaker? I heard about it from National Public Radio. If any of you are interested in the treatment of mental illness and its research, then...
  10. Blog
    Ever wondered why you feel bad when you are sick? Do you feel like you're punishing yourself and pushing yourself to the limits? You shouln't feel bad because your body is doing everything it can to beat the illness so you can feel healthy again. It is doing it for itself and for you. Reward...
