    This is not surprising.
    Yes, it seems better predicted by enneagram than MBTI.

    I thought about it pretty deeply a few times

    no legitimate reason, just being an angsty pizza-faced teen

    deeply enough to be sent to a psychologist though

    who ended up wanting to test me for ADD instead

    I read a book on personality disorders that suggested that bipolar personality disorder is the most likely personality disorder to inflict self-harm / attempt suicide. Every personality disorder in the book seemed to map onto (negative forms of) particular MBTI types (e.g., those with narcissistic personality disorder sounded like unhealthy ESTJs, those with histrionic personality disorder sounded like unhealthy ESFJs, and those with avoidant personality disorder sounded like unhealthy INFJs, etc.) Bipolar personality disorder maps onto unhealthy INFPs. However, I don't know whether that means that unhealthy INFPs would be the most likely to commit suicide or rather the most likely to contemplate/attempt suicide.... Anyway, just a thought....

    Abstract
    This study describes psychological characteristics of gifted adolescents. It also identifies the relationships between psychological personality types and suicide ideation. Participants in the study were 152 juniors enrolled in a public residential high school for academically gifted students. The Suicide Ideation Questionnaire, a 30-item self-report measure, was used to assess adolescent levels of suicide ideation. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI; Myers, 1962), a widely used measure of psychological type that contrasts four dimensions of personality—extra-version (E)/introversion (I), sensing (S)/intuition (N), thinking (T)/feeling (F), and judging (J)/perceiving (P)—was used to determine personality types of the students.

    The results indicated that gifted adolescents did not exhibit heightened rates of suicide ideation as compared to their nongifted peers. However, female students held higher levels of suicide ideation than male students. Female students exhibiting introversion-perceiving (IP) types held higher levels of suicide ideation than those with other types. There was a significant between-groups effect for the judging-perceiving analysis. Students identified as perceiving personality types held higher levels of suicide ideation than those with the judging personality type. Gender, judging/perceiving, and extraversion/introversion combined to reliably predict approximately 18% of the variance in suicide ideation in this sample.
    Interesting. I know females also get depressed more than males, but with actual suicide, males do it at a much higher rate.

    Suicidal Thoughts?

    I guess you could try searching the poll for a pattern, though realistically you'd have to account for the distribution of type that already exists on this forum while assessing those results. I honestly don't know if it would be of any use.

    Whichever type reads the most "which type is the most ____" threads.

    ^I can see what you are saying here. There are different ways of expressing suicidal feelings, and the ultra-risk-taker is one type, rather than just the withdrawn dark brooding type. I also think the type that feels pressure to put up a perfect external front could deal with issues of inner despair.

    It's just a personal theory, but I think the way in which problem-solving is introduced in developing children can affect a sense of despair in reaction to problems later in life. I've known naturally analytical types who were abused and presented with unsolvable problems early in life that can get really stuck and even suicidal when an emotional situation seems impossible to solve. They slip into that sense of complete hopelessness and powerlessness just like a child faced with overwhelming odds from an abuser.
