    I hope you understand that I didn't make you do anything. I didn't stand behind you with a pitchfork demanding that you analyze that thread. Hell, I didn't even ask you to analyze that thread. You did it yourself, of your own volition. If you benefitted, fine, if you wasted your own time, fine. But you can't blame it on me.
    Yeah, I think INTJMom read a little too much into it... overanalyzed it, if you will. She was too fixated on the nature of the arguments and insisting on the original topic as the context to be used, when in fact the discussion topic had moved from that, without regard to the quality of the arguments associated with that movement.

    It seemed to me that you were just making a silly comment about the thread's progression. Noting that the thread had come to be about whether Ts tended to be depressed, you joked that the thread itself was making you depressed...
    Twisted it around, so that the thread was a cause of what was being discussed, rather than simply an attempt at describing/measuring it.

    If I had thought he was joking I wouldn't have cared so much.
    I thought he was serious, and I cared about the pain I thought he was in.
    I kept my promise.
    I did what I said I would do.
    That's all that's important.

    1) I don't know if I'm ever entirely serious, particularly on this forum.

    2) Even if that post was serious, I am one of those strange people whose pains are so fleeting anyway that reminding me of them in an attempt to 'help' just makes it worse by forcing me to stew in them.

    I've noticed ISTJs tend to resemble OCDs.
    IN_J or EN_P are most like schizophrenics.

    I've no real reason for asking other than to simply know.
    That's usually my favorite reason too.

    As an INFJ I have struggled greatly with a thing called the existential vacuum. Or rather, the vacuum or black hole of meaninglessness. I have also battled a severe eating disorder throughout my life and I know 4 other female INFJ's who have also.

    wanna really learn how mental illnessess and types work, read The Edge Effect by Eric Braverman.

    if you do this might save you some time:

    SJ -> GABA
    SP -> serotonine
    NT -> dopamine
    NF -> acetylcholine

    I read somewhere that female INFJs are the type most prone to anorexia. My guess would be that inferior Se can give a distorted body image. Combine this with Fe's desire to fit in and be accepted could lead to an eating disorder. I don't mean to trivialise a serious problem, but I do believe that personality factors are related to mental dysfunctions.

    I am a male INFJ, and while I do not have an eating disorder, I am prone to bodily cravings when I get stressed (that damn Se again) and I probably have the potential for addictions. I also find it hard to see myself as others do.

    I've managed to avoid the existential vacuum (I do recognize what it is..), but that's mostly due to the fact that I've held a high believe to existentialism ever since 10 years old. Not that I knew the name for it then. I could tell you what I was seeing and thinking, remembering at the moment the realisation hit me.. I go back to it when ever I feel the lack of meaning.

    Funny, I've also battled anorexia, still do. Even though it never was my main diagnosis, mine was EDNOS but I fit the anorexia almost perfectly. There's a long story behind how the eating disorder came to be.

    I read something that stated INTs are most likely to be schizophrenic.
