    Yay generalized mbti!
    I can only go off of the varied people i've met, but the majority that were depressed and suicidal were INFPs. I can only assume that it's an idealism vs world vs self thing that can be grown out of over time and experience.
    The same can be said for most types though.

    This thread makes me angry.

    I've known several people who committed suicide.

    I think they were ESFJ, ISxP, and I couldn't type the third, my bff's mother.

    There isn't a type that commits suicide more often. But I will say that when an ESFJ blows their head off there's such an incredible number of shocked people at the funeral that there isn't room to sit down.

    Well we know the suicide rate is unlikely to be perfectly even between all the 16 types. There are going to be some trends, however mild or significant.

    Does it make you feel safe to rationalize death?

    Not safe really, but there's a certain soothingness to it.

    I get that feeling about Ts a lot and their need for rational "control."

    It's all an illusion.

    Probably, but at least it's a reasonable illusion.

    I think any type could have the tendency. I do think that in certain environments certain types could be pulled from being themselves and towards suicide. So you could find certain types in certain cultures, certain environments, patterns there. But realistically it would be too messy to measure and be of any use.

    Also, you don't have to be depressed to commit suicide.

    Wow, necropost.

    But you're right of course.

    I don't remember if at this point I was erroneously assuming suicides start from depresson or whether I was just going off on a tangent about depressives.
