    Smile most likely to "stuff" their feelings"

    Does anyone know which type or function is the most likely to "stuff" their feelings and eat themselves into oblivion?

    I knew an ISFJ who weighed 365 pound for that reason.

    When I watch the shows on television of largely obese people, many of the men (I am not sure about women, but I'm simply describing the men) seem to be mostly:
    - ISFP

    Followed by:
    - ENFP (Not as sure on this one, however)

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    One xSFJ (probably ESFJ) did just that. I know her well, diagnosed initially as clear ESFJ, nowadays she would pass as ISFJ. I introduced the MBTI idea to her.. she got quite interested of the MBTI, altho she likes most psychological tests out of curiosity.

    Anyway, I know her well, and she told her eating disorder began partly as a reaction to being bullied at school when she was 13.

    She's told she stills eats a lot in reaction to sorrow, tho she's cut it down now. I don't know her weight, but she was obese, and now down to heavily overweight - borderline obese.

    I imagine an ISxJ could do that... I would have guessed IxTJ, though, because they seem to have the hardest time expressing feelings. Although an overly polite ISFJ might do the same thing... I might overeat for one day or so if things were bad, but I can't imagine doing it chronically.

    I've seen fat people of almost every type. I'm not sure if it's stuffing their feelings or simple gluttony. I would think EPs are generally the biggest gluttons; though I haven't known any fat ESTPs.

    I haven't seen any fat INFJs, however. Are there any on this board?

    Are any of the INTPs here fat?

    I suspect that at least some INTPs may have a tendency to forget/neglect to eat when they become absorbed in thought or an activity of interest. (Of course, I'm not referring to myself here. Heh heh.)

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    I know an ENFP and an ENTJ who are nearing spherical...
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    INFP, 6w7, IEI

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I've missed a few meals while playing Halo 3, for one.

    I was a chubby little kid. I'm average now. I forget to eat whenever I find a good book, but I hate exercise, so I'll never be skinny. That may be a good thing however, because I don't pay attention while walking, and if I were bony walking into walls would hurt more...

    I would guess probably SFs... although you would think people with inferior Se might do that as well. I do sometimes indulge in comfort food, I think I'm too jittery to gain weight.
