  2. Yami Kawaii "Sick Cute". Mental illness in Japan.

    General Psychology
    In Japan it is not socially acceptable to be suffering from mental illness, much less to talk about it...unless you're cute.

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello all! Recently I've been feeling like I don't really feel anything and I was wondering if this was a common trait in INFPs?

  7. 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.

  11. [INFJ] Dealing with an unhealthy INFJ

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have decided to give this INFJ individual one last chance before I completely remove him from my life. Before I begin I'd like to prefix everything by saying that I find most INFJs to be very agreeable people with a pleasant disposition. This has nothing to do with healthy INFJs. I would also...

  17. Schizophrenia or Borderline Personality Disorder?
