    Exercise, sunlight, and a proper diet are all great for boosting mood.

    I also found keeping busy helpful (Unless you have a super busy life, in which case the opposite would probably be most beneficial).

    At the age of 25 or so I identified myself as an ENFP and noticed slightly altering moods. I suspected cyclotymia for a while. Towards the onset of my burnout at 26 some suggested I had a bipolar disorder, which was probably due to one-time event triggered by external stressors. Enter depression for 3-4 years.

    The possibility of a cyclotymia/bipolar diagnosis lived for a while, until disproven by the medical experts.

    So a lot of speculation over nothing.

    The funny thing was the layman misdiagnosis of a bipolar spectrum disorder, when there was none, and the almost complete neglectance of my diagnosed depression!

    I knew from the start I was just more lively and excitable than my countrymen in Finland. Took a few visits to the shrink to find out just that. A depression went just as the usual routine in my country, which btw (if it isn't obvious by this point), leads the statistics in incidence of depression. What a sad place of pricks, with the exception of few good friends I've got over the time.

    Ygolo, what was your hypothesis in asking this, I was wondering? Also, why haven't more people answered this poll...? Is it a hard question to answer?

    I guess you can say what I had according to the descriptions was recurrent brief depression. It was mild in that it was controllable strictly by mental exercises. I don't like taking drugs.

    Anyways, it went poof now.

    I had a depression a few years ago. It took almost 2 years. It's pretty much a miracle that I survived. Sometimes I did think of killing myself, but then I decided not to do that because I would've given my "enemies" what they wanted if I did that. (Yes, my paranoid nature saved my life.)
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    lol...I think this is kind of where I stand. I have had phases of depression now and then, and social anxiety to a degree, but I tend to view these things as more of the human condition, where it's 'natural' to a degree, and will vary depending on ones own unique disposition.

    Not that there aren't extreme cases, but for myself, I've always been able to do my own flavor of cognitive therapy and have been able to work through any episode/tendency I might have just by thinking things through and also accepting the nature of life (i.e. sometimes it just plain sucks ass)...and I'm sure the fact that I view much of it as 'natural' also influences the process as well. So I voted 'No'.
