  3. Blog
    I wrote about OCD previously and mentioned briefly some of the things I obsess about. At the heart of it all is fear. Fear of... mistakes, failing to consider something, offending someone or hurting their feelings, anger directed at me, bias, overlooking pertinent information, being a source...
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hello, I'm generally new to this forum and community but I have so many questions that I feel I want some kind of opinion on and this one is one of them: Is being an INFP and being diagnosed with OCD an odd pair to have? I have not so recently been diagnosed with a mild form of OCD, but...

I'm going to give LOTS of information so you can help me with an accurate type diagnosis, bear with me! His father has OCPD (but no one in...
  6. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey guys, I'm probably as INFJ as you can get. My emotional connection with everything is so beyond any person I've ever really met, though I've never interacted with another INFJ in person. But what I'm curious about is if there is anyone else in the forum that's an INFJ and deals with...

    I've seen threads like this so I thought I'd create one. I'm an ENTP with OCD so as the title says, ask me anything. :)

    Christmas Eve was interesting. It was also revealing. This is because my mom was overwhelmed by a psychotic, delusional panic attack just as the family was ready to open gifts. Picture me, my brothers and girlfriends sitting around her ornately decorated tree, hearing violent shouting coming...
  10. ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    To begin, it's about trying to understand a particular ISTJ I know of. I'm an INTP and my sister is an ISTJ. I know we do have quite a few differences that I could understand in terms of making decisions, but sometimes there are habits of hers I don't quite get and hope that I could get some...
  11. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Has anyone else noticed a correlation between INTJs and having OCD? A little back story: I've had OCD since I was very young. I recall it starting around age 7 or 8 when I would wash my hands obsessively, to the point where they were so dried out they would crack and bleed - very painful. When...
  12. General Psychology
    Hi guys, I have a non serious OCD that I didn't realize it was an OCD 'till some time ago, when I heard about it from a talk between some classmates of mine. I can't remember the name of it, but it's the kind that makes me think that if I don't do something then something bad might happen, or...

  14. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'm just wondering if there are any other INFJ's suffering from any sort or multiple of the various mental illnesses out there? I'm INFJ 2w1. A little background information on myself... I started self harming at 13 and experienced textbooks symptoms of major depression up until about 15 years...
  15. General Psychology
    Just curious... do any of you do this? Or do you know someone who suffers from this? I haven't been officially diagnosed (as in, I haven't seen a doctor about this), but I do have dermatophagia. It's a fancy medical term for biting the skin off one's fingers. I pull at them either with my...
  16. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I’m obsessing over someone, how do I climb out of the hole I’m obsessing over someone, how do I climb out of the hole\box? I can't see the forest for the trees. I can normally cut someone out of my life, no problem, no regrets or second thoughts. However I can't get over this loss. In my mind...
  17. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I found something out about myself today: This- The Highly Sensitive Person - is me. I had no idea that existed before today, but now that I know, I feel like I'm trying to go back through everything else in my life and view it through this new lens. So much of my life is explained through...
  18. Advice Center
    can you cure intrusive thoughts and OCD on your own? When I'm stressed out I will go on with the habit of trying to pull my tooth out. Or my jaw will be sore for no reason. And sometimes when I'm frightened by terrifying circumstances, I will think I'm a lesbian. I've went to a couple...
  19. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Does anybody feel the need to master certain skills, even if they are insignificant? Such as pencil twirling, knitting, playing an instrument, or handwriting. Or if you take an interest to a subject, you preoccupy yourself with the knowledge of anything possible that pertains to it? I know a...

    I used to suffer from severe OCD, PTSD, GAD, Depression and Social Phobia and have now had a full remission of all of them. Sexual abstinence where I did not have sex or masturbate and have an orgasm for 3-4 months helped me recover. It brought all the anxieties up to the surface where I could...
