    I have no problems with the stats but rather the conclusions drawn from them.

    Assuming,
    a) Type ABCD kicks their own bucket more than other types
    b) Depressed people tend to kick their own bucket more than others (iffy as Morgan pointed out above)

    It is too easy then to make a generalization like "Oh, then type ABCD must have a tendency to be depressed"

    I would think that NFs would be more likely to attempt...but every NT I know has either suffered from depression or is currently struggling with such. Suicide is an 'out' for some of them, an out from their thoughts that can be crippling at time.

    An INTJ I know is often consumed by their depression, and often talks of suicide. Although that person thinks of it as a pathetic act, I can tell that person longs for death. It's a horrible thing.

    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.
    that's ideation, though. correct me if I'm mistaken, but aren't judging types more likely to actually follow though with plans? also, I've attempted suicide multiple times.. and I know it's one think to think about it, and a whole other things to actually attempt with sincerity.

    I agree that any type is susceptible to seriously considering suicide, along with the variations of environments, health of a person, and expectations put upon them. However, those can affect any type differently as well as the same type.

    What about just depressed? Just a question out of curiosity.

    Thought about it.

    Have the tools to do it (am a gun owner).

    But ultimately, my life is too sweet to let anyone else try and live it!

    Even if one type was shown to commit suicide more often than the others by statistical evidence, that doesn't mean an individual of that type is more likely to commit suicide.

    I recently read an article that claimed that depression is linked to thinking (philosophy) too much. Apparently people who are more "here and now," and don't think about the bigger issues, like the meaning of life tend to me more happy. So I would think that being an N would definitely predispose you to more depression.

    Also, F's suffer more, I think. T's tend to say things that hurt the F's feelings.

    So I would guess NF

    They balance it out by doing less thinking, it seems.
