social anxiety disorder

  1. Very Socially Disconnected - What is my mind doing? (Selective Mutism? Social Phobia? Dissociation?)

    General Psychology
    I have always felt very disconnected around others. It feels like my mind doesn't process conversation the way it's supposed to and I am always very aware of this when socializing and observing others socially. In social settings I'm always observing others and listening to what they're saying...
  2. Help Type me? MBTI confused me so lets give Socionics a try!

    Personal concepts 1. What is beauty? What is love? -For me, the beauty is two things- the physical aesthetic/appearance, but to me beauty goes way beyond that. A moment can be beautiful- a moment full of emotion, a battle fought and the moment of victory...a flower can be beautiful, not only for...

  4. Introverted Anxiousness or Social Anxiety Disorder ???

    General Psychology
    I need to attend a wedding tomorrow (the whole family is going, and my mother will not sit peacefully if I decline to go). At this moment I am having excessive anxiety. It is a strong uneasy feeling- I feel others are forcing me to go, I will have to dress up on others demand (my mother, ESFJ)...
  5. Is my Social Anxiety Disorder caused by my types or is it the other way around?

    General Psychology
    So. I have a Social Anxiety Disorder and I'm an ISFJ 6w5 so/sp/sx. I think ISFJ, type 6 and so all "correlate" with social anxiety disorder. So, do I have social anxiety disorder because of my types, or am I those types because of my social anxiety disorder? Any experiences or ideas?
  6. INFJ and social anxiety. Common combo?

    New to this website, I'm Vincent from Belgium, hi :) I read a few posts on Personality Café, dating from 2013, were some people discussed being INFJ and having problems with social situations (being anxious and avoiding). I am INFJ and I have the same issues, although it has improved :)...
  7. [INFP] Coping with clubbing

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    so I have a problem and I hoped maybe some of you more experienced INFP's might be able to help: the problem...of partying! I'm on 'freshers week' at my new university and I'm currently living with some very extroverted people who are very nice and keen to include me in stuff including wild...
  8. [INFJ] Social Anxiety Disorder (treatments)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hey everyone, This really isn't an INFJ thing. I was actually interested in hearing about the treatments and medications some of you who are dealing with any type of anxiety disorder and what the side effects are like. I'm actually going to be seeing a doctor some time this month or the next...
  9. [ENTJ] ENTJs with Social Anxiety Disorder?

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Just for a bit of background, I was recently thinking about my experiences in the past struggling with social anxiety. It randomly hit me somewhere around this chain of thought that the traditional portrait of an ENTJ personality is very different (almost opposite) with the experiences of people...
  10. [INFP] AvPD, anxiety problems, shyness or Introversion? Am I a true introvert?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    The MBTI is not designed to make the difference between introversion and shyness or stronger anxiety problems like AvPD. In order for people to get a better understanding of their nature I feel this issue needs to be clarified. I have seen many INFPs saying that there is nothing good about...
  11. [ENTP] high-school ENTP w/ social anxiety - reassurance and insights appreciated

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    A few months ago I took a personality test just for s&g's and when I read the ENTP description it gave me, I was just utterly speechless. I never had any idea that there were others who worked like me - I thought I was the only one! I was especially surprised that the descriptions didn't just...
