    well even with convential diagnoses you can still be mis-diagnosed, like i'm convinced i was and because of it, i know longer have rights and get treated like i can't take care of myself. it's very demeaning.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I ask mainly because introversion's not a mental illness in the sense of an unhealthy psychiatric condition, it's just a pattern of behavior and understanding of what energizes an individual.
    I do not mean strictly in the medical sense.

    I think there is a distinct tendency (nowadays or always, I don't really know) to believe that "normal" exists. When someone feels they are sad or can't sleep or can't concentrate, that's not normal. They automatically think, "What's wrong with me?" And they want to believe it is some condition they suffer from, not that life is just shitty and you feel all sorts of uncomfortable things as a result of it. They will say, "Oh I have depression. I have insomnia. I have ADD. I need to get treated for this so I can be normal."

    Fair enough if you actually have the condition, but I think probably only a fraction of those who claim to suffer from these things actually do. You don't have depression if you're sad sometimes. You aren't an insomniac if you stay up late on your computer and don't feel like sleeping. You don't have ADD just being you can't always concentrate or get distracted sometimes.

    Have you heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder?

    Pop Psychology in the Electronic Age

    Since the invention of the electronic telegraph in 1840 we have been moving from an exploding literate society to an imploding electronic society.

    And as we implode, we impode into each other and into ourselves. And so we become vitally interested in understanding ourselves and others - and that is why almost all are here for mbti.

    And as we implode electronically into ourselves we look inward and create the therapeutic society.

    And the therapeutic society is to ease us from literate individualism to electronic tribalism.

    So welcome to the electronic tribe of Typology Central where we understand ourselves through pop psychlogy and mbti.

    I've noticed alot of people will say they have OCD or ADD. It seems like people have an OCD or ADD moment and claim they have the disorder. Well most people are obsessive compulsive about something and most people have lapses of attention every now and then. It doesn't mean you have the disorder. It's hard to know if these people are really being serious or not when they say they have something like OCD. It may be just some peoples way of poking fun at themselves. On the other hand, I do think people tend to over self-diagnose. Is it human nature to want to put a label on things? How is putting on an MBTI type label any different?
