    Default Loneliest type?

    So, which type is generally the loneliest, and what about them creates this problem? What could they do differently to mitigate it?

    MBTI preferably, but I suppose enneagram is okay too. I'm doing this because my INTP friend is convinced that his profile and "statistics about INTPs" are fatalistically dooming him to be lonely forever :rolli:

    I'm an INTP and I never feel lonely ever. And won't ever in the future either.

    It is irrational to feel lonely.

    Feeling lonely is probably more present among the F types. No offense.

    ISTJs seem pretty lonely, but then I'm not really familiar with many other types.

    I'd say INTJ/Ps, except they are generally too busy being brilliant to even notice they're alone. I'd say the introverted Fs, actually.

    My friend's argument goes like this: type 5 enneagram at their unhealthiest is schizoid, or basically disconnected from reality. Since INTP is highly correlated with type 5, and somewhere he read that INTPs are the most introverted, he believes that INTPs are doomed to never leave the house and find friends or engage in healthy socializing.

    But MonkeyGrass brings up an excellent point: INTPs may be lonely only once they place value on it and stop being preoccupied with their own interests.

    Just tell him to be himself and be proud of his type.

    If I was to try and be more like an ENFP, I'd feel hella lonely too. But I'm not, I'm happy with who I am.

    We create our own happiness and inner emotions for a great deal I'd say for the average INTP, only a quarter of our happiness is related to external sources we have no control over. It's a matter of choice. o/

    It's not Introverts who feel lonely, it's Extroverts. Introverts like being alone, thus why they don't get lonely too often. Extroverts are more prone to feel lonely because they usually prefer to be around people more than Introverts, and can't always be around people, which is why they feel lonely.

    I'm an Extrovert and I feel lonely all of the time.

    As for most loneliest type, I'd say ESFPs or ENFPs.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
