I'm not a doctor so cannot talk about clinical depression, but I would think any Fi dom might be pretty susceptible to depression in the more commonly used sense for a number of reasons. Young Fi users in particular can find their personal values so closely attached to their value as a person that anything they encounter that conflicts with their values can be felt as an insult or even a physical attack. It can take a lot of time and experience and focus to grow past that and be able to feel stronger in the face of such things.So I'm 19 and have been depressed for about two years now. I'm very much an ISFP and was wondering if depression is more common among us.
Interesting, if you don't mind me asking what is your age?Yeah. I was committed to a Psychiatric hospital for eight months last year.
As @Wendixy said:Every ISFP I've known close enough has told me they've had a rough history of psychological problems, or I've seen so myself. I'm not sure what causes this...
We are sensitive, so anything that could deal a heavy blow to our feelings can put us into depression.
Hrm... same age as me then, I'm curious, did anything big set off this depression? Or was it a gradual thing? I feel like I'm falling into gradual depression... if it wasn't for the internet I'd probably be in the same position you were a year or two ago, just talking to other people in a stress free environment that the internet provides is so helpful.jackeyjoe- I just turned 19, I was 17 when I was admitted and had my 18th birthday there
