    Default Are strong "Thinkers" prone to being a risk to themselves?

    Do you think so? Emotionally and mentally speaking, that is.

    In general, I don't think so. But STJs seem rather defenseless against strong emotions. They can do serious damage in short order.

    Only when they tell me "You should. . ."

    This is interesting. I'll think on it. INTP son, ISTJ husband.

    On one site I read that ISTJs are prone to depression and I could see that.

    Son has Social Anxiety Disorder.

    You could probably present a case for either but strong Thinkers.

    If they haven't developed much of a feeling function then I would say yes.

    They can be if they piss everyone else off through "no sympathy" and not making personal alliances but the then their own logic is not sound enough to keep them out of danger zones in their lives, people will be burnt out on them and in return not give them any sympathy or help them out.

    In other words, if one is going to stand alone without personal alliances or sympathy for others, one must be damned sure they are capable of sailing the boat alone.
