i read that if in an introvert both the dominant and auxiliary functions are introverted a neurosis can develop, and if they are fused(whatever that means) a psychosis can develop. the same goes for an extravert with both functions extraverted.
What does that mean? I still have not taken the time to wrap my head around all the functions. Can you give examples of types that fall into this category?

I've seen a lot of IxxJs go through eating disorders. I think INxJs can be pretty susceptible, particularly if their handle on their inferior Se is poor. Bad inferior Se can show as an obsessive focus on your environment or your physical self, or an overloading of the senses/overindulging in sensual pleasures. Together, this could mean overindulging in food and an obsessive focus on weight --> eating disorder. Eating disorders are more than often to do with control too, which is another reason why the IxxJs are the types more likely to develop one.

I think bipolarity can be found in every type. However it is possible that the apparent type changes whethere the person is in manic or depressive state.
My father is bipolar, and would be an ISTJ most of the time, although in more manic states he becomes ENTJ.
I'm going to give the Schizoid and Schizotypal to the IxTxs. Histrionic to ExFxs, Antisocial to...I have no idea...Borderline to xFxJs, Narcissistic to Ts in general, Dependent to Feelers in general, and I don't know what else. I'll have to think about it.
I'm PD free, but I'm an ENFJ with bulimia...and seriously damaged Se, which makes me curious about the *bad Se=eating disorder* hypotheses.
