    General Psychology
    Looking for those who may be familiar with OCD ~ especially compulsive thought loops. Hoping you'll be willing to share what you know, and especially interested in hearing from those who have figured out how to stop doing this. I get stuck in destructive thought/theme loops, and desperately...
  2. When someone is obviously mentally ill, why provoke and antagonize them? Why bully?

    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...

  6. [ISFJ] ISFJ and mental disorders

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Is it possible to have Attention Deficit Disorder and Asperger's if you're an ISFJ? I've read that it's really, really uncommon to have ADD if you're an SJ of any kind, since that flightiness of attention runs counter to the nature of that set of characteristics. And I've also read that because...
  7. [ENTP] Disorders and illnesses

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    So I'm curious, what personality disorders and mental illnesses are ENTP's most prone to? Which ones are they least prone to? I use to be a little paranoid, but I think that's been replaced by sociopathic tendencies (although I do have a high moral code) from dissociative states. I mean, why...

    So I'm curious, what personality disorders and mental illnesses are type 7's most prone to? Which ones are they least prone to? Do you think there's a difference between 7w8 and 7w6 for these 2 questions? I'll go first. I can be a little OCD from time to time and can definitely be...
  9. Personality traits vs disorders vs mental illnesses

It seems like I have a lot of the traits that are exhibited in antisocial personality disorders (sociopaths), schizoid personality...
