    Default Crazy people and MBTI[c]

    So do you think mentally ill people are more likely to be attracted to MBTI[c]? If so why?

    I think it can, because their is a stigma for mental health issues. So often times people realize that they are not quite like others, and part of them knows they should probably talk to someone. But the other part doesn't know what they'd do if someone found out, so they explore different avenues such as religion and personality type. So as I was saying their searching for any sort of confirmation that they're normal and as soon as they get it they latch on. I could of course be totally wrong. So opinions, and be honest.

    I think you're on to something, in fact I was thinking about creating a thread like this.

    It seems to me that many mentally unbalanced people are attracted to this forum and others like it. I guess psychology forums may have some type of inherent draw maybe, perhaps, possibly, conceivably.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Now, is this place attracting crazy people, or does this place make people go crazy?

    I'm almost inclined to argue the latter...

    Yep, there are some certifiable personas around these parts. You have to wonder if they are only feigning an antic disposition or truly whacked. I can see why true nuts are attracted in particular to the religion and psychology forums. These topics tend to attract their fair share of mumbo jumbo from even the sane. The insane shouldn't be as conspicuously nutty there. From the looks of the thread, the strategy's not working out too well.
