    I am saying this because I think there would be a strong correlation between certain types an certain disorders.


    Come on you have never read a type and thought that would be the most likely to have:

    Obsessive Compulisve behavior,
    Depression,
    Anxiety
    Sociopathic
    schizo


    MBTI helps to say you are but because of and it is ok, possibly relieving fear and giving purpose

    Are you serious?

    MBTI is at best a party game, and at worst, a cult.

    A person with a mental disorder has a psychosis.

    And a psychotic is out of touch with reality.

    So not only is cognitive therapy contra-indicated for psychosis but party games or cults are damaging.

    It seems to me that to ask such a question means you believe your own propaganda.

    And this is the first sin of any propagandist.

    I am sure you are a naive and narcissistic propagandist, but it doesn't change the facts.

    To say a certain type expresses a behavior more often doesn't excuse that behavior. If it's a problem, it's a problem.

    I think you could make statistically significant correlations between MBTI types and mental disorders.

    But that doesn't really help, now, does it? Correlation and causation are completely different...

    Good heavens, you can't even make statistically significant correlations between MBTI types and personality. So you have absolutely no chance of making statistically significant correlations between MBTI types and mental disorders.

    Have we disappeared down the rabbit hole with Alice? Should we - could we consult the White Rabbit or perhaps the Queen of Hearts?

    Sorry, but you're wrong. Hopefully someone else will come and link a study, because I'm drunk and tired and you bother me too much for me to care to look it up.

    Diagnoses don't correlate with given types (other than depression; no surprise that INFPs have more problems with it given that they are opposite general "norms")

    ESFJ/ENFJ mothers are most likely to bring in their extraverted thinking preschoolers, certain that their normal behavior is a sign of autism.

    In restrictive school environments (i.e., the child is supposed to sit still for long periods) EP children are most likely to be inappropriately referred for ADHD. C'mon, if they were allergic to wheat we'd stop feeding it to them but if they are "allergic" to inactivity we medicate them...

    All types can have various disorders but for each, certain types are more likely to be misdiagnosed.
