  1. How best to support a suicidal INFJ?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have a very good INFJ male friend who revealed to me a little over a week ago that he intends to commit suicide maybe in the next few weeks, because he feels stagnant in life, not in control of it, and just "wants everything to stop". He has settled on how he will do it, just doesn't know...
  2. *TW*: Is persistent, casual suicidal ideation a problem?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I feel kind of bad making this thread for some reason, cause I feel bad about starting a "negative" discussion I guess, but it's within my rights to, right? And I'd like to share my thoughts somewhere and hear what some of you have to say. Fair warning: I am going to let this be a bit rambly...
  3. 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 &...

  6. Responding to suicide (how??)

    General Psychology
    Obviously a sensitive topic, don't read on if you don't like it. Unfortunately people in our society can have terrible lives and mental states (and more) that can lead them to take their own lives. I'm young, so to more socially experienced people out there: How are you supposed to react as...

    Blog
    TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE AND DEPRESSION I've been suicidal since I was about nine or ten. I have told my mother about it but she's consistently brushed me and my emotions off for years. She believes any short comings I feel are because of my godlessness. I've been close to ending my life on...

    Intro
    Hi this is my first forum EVER! I usually find fulfillment through social and one on one interactions. This is so strange to me to seek my deeper self at the mercy of strangers. I've taken the Myers Brigg about 20 years ago and was listed as an ENTJ. Lately, I've been feeling...

  14. [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...
  15. [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 /...

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I am INTP and I need another perspective on this. My dearest friend INTJ wants to kill himself. As you know INTJ are extremely rational. He has researched it and so on. He says he has hurt too many people. He didn't talk to me for about 5 days last week because of other hassles and then he said...
  19. [INFJ] Why are comedians often suicidal?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I have heard before that comedians by nature, are at high risk for being suicidal, and ever since the death of Robin Williams I was compelled to look into it. A lot of times the answers I produced are the fact that they're aware of a darker aspects of life that nobody else is, and that gearing...
