    Default mental disorders and mbti type

    i was wondering if personality type has something to do with what kind of mental disorder you get if you get eny. and if it has something to do with the secondary function being fucked up or if the strenght of the fucked up function determs how bad the mental disorder is going to be. allso i think more functions malfunctioning means more severe disorder

    for example i know infp who has schizophrenic obsessive compulsive disorder, basicly he gets a feeling that something bad is going to happen to someone then he had to repeat the thing that he was doing when the thought came to his head untill it didnt come enymore, allso if he touched someone he had a feeling that something bad was going to happen to him and he had to touch him again and again and again till he did it without the tought coming to him. to me that sounds like fucked up Ne aided by some other functions, but Ne playing the biggest part. luckilly he has this under control with medicine now. he allso had panic disorder before this disorder came up

    i know two enfps, who were depressed(other not badly and dont know about other) and one guy who i think is enfp who has manic depression(thats under control with medicine). other enfp allso had panic attacks in really highly stresfull situations

    according to meny mbti personality profiles intps are prone to paranoia, i would think that it might be caused by fucked up Ne and Ti analyzing the fucked up info Ne is giving and most likely Ti will overanalyze the info that Ne gives if it doesent make sense with normal degree of analyzing


    someone had some mental problems or know people with some mental disorders, what were they and what were theyr types?

    Maybe being a certain type would magnify the effects of a mental disorder, but I don't think it lays the railway for one.

    as you mentioned, there may be a possibility that Ti+Ne over analyzing could lead to paranoia or stress, which might stack with someone who already has a paranoid personality disorder. Therefore, INTPs with PPD might be more likely to show the symptoms in greater concentration or more often than other types with PPD.

    It's really just a guess, it's possible your type and mental disorders have no real cumulative connection with each other at all. The Ti might actually rationalize the paranoia and thus bring it down a notch, and your INTP with PPD could look less severe than another type with the disorder.

    There was a similar thread here:

    Although I don't think anyone had any empirical evidence of actual correlations.

    no offence, but you should think about that instead of following your feelings and guessing without thinking it rationally

    thats a coincidence that mental disorders usually comes up in late teens when secondary function is starting to get more developed?

    this kind of subject really is just a series of guesses and suspicions. I only did the same thing you did. No offense, but do not jump to conclusions about why I wrote what I wrote.

    Ah, I misunderstood. Personality disorders are often now classified as a sub-category of the broader category of mental disorders, so it seemed applicable. I can see that classification of mental illness changes over time and varies between countries/states.

    I've actually made an appointment with the shrink. Will report back if an diagnoses is made. And or if I actually get the appointment I ordered, the first one stopped answering my emails.

    Doubt I have a disordered brain.

    But I did score in the 100 range on this test.
    Test for Social Anxiety Disorder

    And on the personality disorder test that is floating around I scored very high on avoident. Also good scores for the schizo disorders, with decent result on paranoid as well.
