    Default Does Paranoia have anything to do with any type?

    I have just noticed that i'm really paranoid when i'm in shopping centers and shit because i'm usually scared of people looking at me and afraid people are always out to get me (lol) and that if i look at someone wrongly i might get into some kind of conflict.

    This associcated with any function?

    Well...I'm an INFJ and enneagram type 6, so...probably as paranoid as it's possible to be although I think I am reasonably "healthy".

    But seriously - INFJ interest in and concern over human relationships and how others see me, Ni scanning infinite possibilities, and 6 anxiety, questioning, catastrophizing and concern over power relationships? I'm doomed!

    I don't recommend typing yourself based on that. In my experience N-doms (INxJ and ENxP) are most often into those elaborate, out-there paranoid conspiracy theories, but the vague sense of being watched or targeted may not be type-related at all.

    ESTP with opressive inferior Ni tend to be extremely and severly paranoid.

    I think I'm mainly paranoid over how others see me, though I'm learning to control that better. I'm not really into conspiracy theories and find a lot of them pretty ridiculous. It's mostly focused around human relationships for me, and I am definitely more confident and secure on the whole than I used to be.

    ESFP as well, though less so because they use the Informing communication style (Get Things Going). ESTPs are directing types and feel more need to get results, which under stress can make them very Ni paranoid

    Paranoia is supposed to be related to your inferior function, i.e. because you don't understand it, you assume it will get the best of you. So INTJ/INFJs are supposed to be paranoid that physical objects in their environment will fail them (Inferior Se), INTP/ISTPs are supposed to be paranoid that other people hate them or will leave them (inferior Fe), and ENTP/ENFPs are supposed to be paranoid that their normal aches and pains are deathly diseases (inferior Si).

    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.

    Abso-freaking-lutely. Interacted with several both online and in person. That said, I don't know if it actually is related to personality type at all, or if I just have a skewed sample.
