I've been wondering what relationships there are, if any, between MB personality types and personality disorders such as narcissistic, paranoid, anti-social or obsessive compulsive disorder.
(I've been wondering since reading a facinating book called "Emotional Vampires" by DR Al Bernstein which allows you to classify people along the lines of either having a full blown disorder or disorders (fairly rare) or having aspects of one or more (universal). (For some reason he only covers 6 of the 12 recognised disorders)).
I thought it was interesting I came out as above average in Paranoia (and nothing else) in Bersteins test and am INFJ "the conspiracy theorist" with Myers Briggs. Pretty much the same.
Could it be some types are more likely to suffer from narcissism, anti-social (psychopathy) etc. (I won't speculate on other types, in deferrence to political correctness I'll only talk about my own type, maybe let others talk about themselves).
There are 12 personality disorders and 16 MB types so I guess there can't be one for each.
One important difference between Berstein and what little Myers-Briggs I have encountered so far is he is very positive about the possiblity of changing your vices (over years with effort) while I get the feeling with MB people are stuck with their possibly sick personalities, which may well be more true but is also more depressing.
