    The most paranoid person I know (who is a relative of mine) is either INTJ or ENTJ. He thinks everyone is out to get him.

    I get paranoid in the grocery store, because I always think someone is looking in my grocery cart and judging it as "healthy" or "not healthy." I just have to remind myself that no one cares!

    Personally I haven't had much experience that backs this up. I can sort of identify with the typical stress reactions of all the types, so I kind of think all these characterizations might rely on confirmation bias. But I'd be interested to hear if other people feel they're true for them.
    This is a fascinating theory. I think that I mostly worry about what people think about me and not things, but I certainly worry about money and security a lot, and I imagine money would be an S thing.

    What is fascinating about parnoia is that it it psychological preparation to attack. Of course the paranoid is unaware of this and projects their own hostility onto others.

    And in fact it is very hard to become aware of our own hostility to others, as it is so socially unacceptable.

    Para-noia means parallel knowing. And we all know parallel lines never meet, at least in a flat universe. And it turns out, dear Enropie, that our universe is flat, in that the sum total of all energy is zero.

    I think all types have different types of paranoia. I don't think my ISTP dad ever trusts anyone. I am also pretty paranoid.

    I never fully trust that people are being honest about emotions, for example (though it isn't a totally inferior function of mine). I have met some very charming boys, who I have felt attraction towards, but probably never would have trusted them, not knowing for sure the extent of their honesty (damned ENFJs).

    Aches and pains I have never worried about. I am a total 'it's only a flesh wound, but my ankle is bleeding out' sort of person. I am also paranoid about the possibilities of 'what could happen'. Like when driving over bridges. Walking in the woods at dusk. Swimming in the ocean. Etc.

    Mostly, I don't trust people.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?
