    Guess the type
    Jane - ISFP - Favorite literary heroine ever, and one of the first ones from fiction I really related to as an ISF/TP myself, though I feel I’d be way more suspicious of Mr. Rochester’s bizarre behaviors and dark secrets than she is, and start badgering him with tons of questions about what the...

  3. [INTP] Why do I have little emotional response to real life experience?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I don't know if this is related to the fact that I am an INTP but I thought maybe someone can discuss this with me? In real life I feel incapable of having feelings or detached from my own feelings, and when I do, I feel anxious and empty, almost like my feelings are repressed within me, which...

The one I think I mainly have is Avoidant Personality Disorder or APD! I feel like I do avoid situations where I have...

    General Psychology
    So this is probably a better place to ask than most. I'm curious as to where the lines between personality traits, personality disorders, and mental illnesses lie. It seems like I have a lot of the traits that are exhibited in antisocial personality disorders (sociopaths), schizoid personality...
  14. "The core of truth"

    General Psychology
    I just read this very interesting article. It's about how in every personality disorder there is this "core of truth". For instance, a person extremely obsessed about hand-washing actually has a certain, should I say heightened?, awareness about the germs/bacteria that may lurk in their hands -...
