  1. I'm 38 years old this year, and I still don't know what to do, and whether I should continue to live, or just die?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Long story short, my life is a complete failure. It’s full of wrong decisions, (in)actions, regrets, mistakes after mistakes, that I honestly think maybe it’s already too late to “fix everything” (eg: I’m losing all the good chances/opportunities, as I’m getting old now). It’s really ironic &...

    ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    I am an ENFP who has been struggling with depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts for almost ten years. ED and Body dysmorphia developed around three years ago and I do pretty well trying to push through and overcome the darkness but I've been in an extremely suicidal slump and this time I'm...

  4. [INFP] INFPs and suicide

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I was bored and looked up William Shakespeare and found that he died at age 52. I actually didn't know that; thought he died of old age. Anyway, I looked up every INFP listed under "Famous INFPs" on Celebrity Types and was pretty appalled by what I found: I could only find a couple dead ones...
  5. [INFP] are INFPs not needed in this cold, harsh, pragmatic, Money / business oriented world?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have honestly been severely depressed (& even suicidal) for quite some time lately. One of the biggest/main thought I have is how 'alien' INFPs can often feel, living in this 'ESTJ'-ish world/society. My question is: are we INFPs really not needed in this cold, harsh, pragmatic, shallow /...

  7. [INFP] the concept of 'loser'

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    do you think such concept necessarily have to be a reality ? and, an unavoidable reality, at that (like society often dictates, judges, or say)? Or, could it simply due to our (human's) mostly limited mind & perceptions & understanding only? where is really the sharp fine line? and what is...
  8. Depressed ENFP

    Advice Center
    I know that since I'm an ENFP you will probably be all like "nah, bs, you can't know depression. You're optimistic." fuck that. No, no I'm not. Not now. If optimism is equivelant to debating suicide, and going back to old habbits, then yes, I AM optimistic. I am acting nothing like my type, I...
  9. In desperate need of help

    I'm a fifteen year old infp in her freshman year of high school. While I may seem young and naive, I'm currently facing difficult times and feeling beyond suicidal. I've drifted a long ways from the ideal life of perfection I once led, and I must say lately I've been seeing the worst in things...
  10. Extremly depressed and exhausted

    Advice Center
    I've never wrote here before. I wrote this on my FB status recently: The feeling of loneliness had been overwhelming lately. I have no one, no support but friends online. You're all I have but I don't really know how much longer can I continue with this after all that has happened. I'm not...
  11. Can't do it. Can't do it anymore.

    Advice Center
    Warning: This post is very disorganized and there are alot of repetitive phrases, but only because I can't get my mind to focus well and think straight. Another note to add is the fact that I've spent only a month waning off of my 40 mg Prozac medication that I've taken for 4 YEARS, and now here...
  12. [INFJ] Trying to help my INFJ friend

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everybody, I'm new to Personality Cafe, so forgive me if I don't follow any conventions. I don't know any yet. My best friend, an INFJ girl, has been experiencing a lot of emotional stress recently. She took an SAT subject test recently, her grades are down, and her mom is giving her a hard...
  13. [INFP] To the Depressed & Suicidal: You've got the music in you

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I've been thinking about this since watching The Walking Dead. Several characters have contemplated suicide since Season 1 - the world is run by zombies and death is quite painful. Thus, the morality of suicide is debated in nearly each episode. I have a neighbor who committed suicide not too...
  14. Killing me

    :unsure:I'm down. I have been working up on this for weeks. I have felt myself becoming agitated and tired, and crying sometimes, staring into space...saying "what the F do they want" when someone is about to ask me something. Now today, I'm at a low point and I had a head ache ugh. Thinking...
  15. [INFP] Becoming a misanthrope & disillusioned: "Humanity is hopeless,I can't relate anymore"

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Becoming a misanthrope & disillusioned: "Humanity is hopeless,I can't relate anymore" (WARNING: below this line you will read perhaps the ultimate most 'arrogant' (or whatever it is you'll call) BIG, general rants on the "BIGGER-picture" things ever. and contrary to many threads on this forum...
  16. Rates of suicide, motives, and personality type.

    Myers Briggs Forum
    It seems that the INFP is the type that tries to commit more suicides, but what about the others that follow? What are the main differences among types about the motives to take your own life and the way to do that. Are intuitives more suicidal? are thinkers more successful and effective at...
