    Seriously tho - when I began my training as a mental health nurse, out of a class of 20 there were 3 with strong psychoses. Apparently this is not unusual in mental health whether it be psychologists, psychiatrists or nurses. I suspect the same proportion or thereabouts would be attracted to Typology. This rate is well above the occurrence in the population at large.

    Most people who suffer from psychoses these days are 'managed' so it would only be if they stopped taking meds that you would notice.

    i mean, honestly... aren't we all a little crazy? seriously.

    the only normal people, are the people you don't know well.

    I agree - I have never laid claim to sanity and never will but there ARE those for whom a psychosis is a serious impediment to daily living for them and their loved ones.

    Some of these tho would willingly trade sanity to maintain their creativity.

    I wandered on here because I was bored one day.
    But before then I have been lurking around, because I have serious identity issues...I'm most likely crazy, in clinical terms.

    Only a very small percentage of the population are psychotic. Under the Bell Curve almost all of us are normal.

    If we were all psychotic then we would be normal and the bell curve would represent that. We have to have a baseline of normal before we can have abnormal.
    Im out, its been fun

    Rather than starting with a baseline for normal, we end with what is statistically normal.

    oh, agreed.

    my point is, most people would find comfort in something like the mbti as we all have some sort of inconsistency or oddness, for which we would find solace in understanding the psychology behind mbti. and for those that don't, are simply in denial of their own abnormalities. i can think of a few people i know offhand who may claim to be "normal," not realizing their own idiosyncrasy's.

    Maybe if more people studied those aspects of living. They'd put the pity-party pill doctors out of business.

    A post from addforums:

    i was almost diagnosed with Disorganized Schitzophrenia and didnt find any relief from this "mind over matter" bull**** even after several suicidal episodes and attempts - because living a life where you cant even organize your own thoughts to have a conversation just didnt seem worth living..

    oh.. and i wasnt eating for days on end because i was litterally going insane because i couldnt organize myself enough to make my own meals..

    ya.. Mild Symptoms (symptoms that are almost inconsiquencial at all!) must be nice.


    Yeah I've never heard anything so normal.

    I'm close to quitting this site. Any good that can possibly come from typology is surely overshadowed by the enormous harm caused when paired with already poorly-researched, ill-informed opinions. Harm as in preventable suicides, unemployment, debt, homelessness, substance misuse etc. going unprevented because people refuse their genetically impaired or brain-damaged kids (often brain damaged by their own actions, drinking, smoking etc. when pregnant) medical treatment until it's slapping-you-in-the-face obvious that they need it, by which point huge damage has been done and they've been misdiagnosed with bipolar or something just because "ADHD isn't that bad so if it's killing you it can't be that, have some anti-psychotics that won't help a jot but will give you hideous side effects". :steam:
