  1. MBTI types more prone to some Mental Illnesses

    General Psychology
    OR do you think it's just part of the human experience and disease doesn't discriminate?
  2. [INTP] Repressing Emotions - Your Experience

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So does anybody else have this problem? It would be lovely to read about it. As example, something will happen that annoys me. It's stupid to be annoyed about however, so I ignore it - but it happens more often, and I start to get pissed off more each time. That, again, makes me believe my...
  3. Insecurities & Trust Issues

    Advice Center
    Before getting into this, I'm aware that my best chance is talking things through with a therapist, but unfortunately I can't afford any sessions at the moment. I've realised that my thought process has become increasingly unhealthy since I've lost my support system. In less than a week I've...
  4. [INTJ] All systems check

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Nearly everyone I know needs their coffee in the morning to wake up. Personally I use it to level off, but that is a totally different thread. The questions is: Do you guys have a mental process by which you judge whether or not you are "at working level" For me, I have a few mental "checks"...
  5. [INTJ] Mental Games anybody?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    As a kid, I began developing mental habits that helped me escape from my surroundings. These "games" became habits I still do today. a couple of them is to envision I am a walking out of the room I am currently in, then continue walking until I can no longer keep the image. Another game I would...

    im curious if our mental illnesses are related to what personality we are. for instance me and my mother and both ENFP's and have bipolar and depression. my mother also has schizoaffective disorder. wondering if you have any observations, links, thoughts or personal research you'd like to...
  7. [INFJ] Help! Did I change type?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone. I'm new to these forums. I've been rather uneasy about something lately. I was wondering if there might have been any chance that I changed my type during my period of depression. How often can a change like this occur? I've taken the MBTI personality test numerous times before and...
  8. [INTP] I wonder if INTPs are just intelligent people with Complex PTSD. lol

    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. Just a random thought. Tell me what you think.
  9. Do you think mental illness exists?

    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...
  10. Should we avoid people?

    General Psychology
    Came across an intriguing article that argues in favor of avoiding people altogether: Mental Health News: The article claims that avoiding people is ultimately good for our health. I guess this all depends on who we're talking about. Not ALL people are annoying and troublesome; we all have...
  11. [INTJ] Are INTJs the most likey to be Aspies of all personality types?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I've been going through some stuff in life recently and based on several internet inquiries and a lot of memes, it seems that INTJs are most likely to be Aspies than any other personality type anywhere from mild Asperger's to heavily Asperger's. What are your thoughts on this subject?
  12. How does Fe experience emotions?

    Cognitive Functions
    As an Fi dominant it's hard to imagine how Fe manifests. I've got a few questions, especially for Fe dominants and auxiliary. -How much do you feel when there's no one around you? -How do you experience emotions on an internal level? -How aware are you of your own emotions when you're with...
  13. Can each function be defined by what energizes it?

    Cognitive Functions
    Can whatever stimulus that energizes a particular function be distinct from stimuli that energize the other functions? For example: What exclusively energizes Fi doms? Which function is most likely to be energized by the continuous stringing together of related or unrelated ideas? Discuss...
  14. What is wrong with Harley Quinn?

    General Psychology
    Harley Quinn is often depicted in the comics and the Batman animated series(there is multiple versions) as a psychologist who fell in love with Joker went insane and became his crazy side kick. She is often not depicted in any of the batman films. Which is disappointing and I think it would be...
  15. [INFP] INFP and HOME

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello guys, my questions is: How do you guys respond to Home environment? When i say environment, i'm not thinking of people but how things look, and makes you feel.

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi, I used to be an INFJ and then I had a mental breakdown and now I don't know anything. I don't know my type or what I like to do. Has this happened to any of you before or have any of you ever had a mental breakdown and what was it like before during and after?
  17. hi, I'm a 'normal' ENFP and only slightly mental (legitimately)

    I've just signed up to this forum and my intent is to seek answers, learn from others and contribute to discussion. I have a psychiatric background - patient and not doctor - of various sorts. I'm physically attractive (average enough and good enough) and my demeanor is bubbly. Internally, I'm...
  18. MBTI and mental disorders

    Myers Briggs Forum
    So Im an ENFP who one a number of occasions looked into various mental disorders. I do this because often when I go introverted(Fi time) I can get the feeling something might be wrong with me. One that I seemingly can in identify with is Borderline personality disorder(I will not assume I got...
  19. Radiohead- Music to My Mind

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Even though I usually can't figure out what they mean by their lyrics, Radiohead speaks to me. I read somewhere that Thom Yorke writes for himself so the songs are so personalized no one could figure out what they mean unless they were in his head. Nonetheless, I can relate to many of their...
  20. [INTJ] My personality system

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    This is my system that i put up for debate/argument. A person lives through sensation (touch, taste, smell, sound, vision, propriecitation eg balance). sensation can either be mental (imagination, inner speech etc) or real (eg actually looking at this screen or drinking something etc) - aka...
