    To clarify: it's not that you're saying that they're more likely to have chronic pain -- it's that they're more likely to report that they do? If we're going to rationalize the idea of linking functions to that, I'd say that Se would make more sense. And straying from MBTI -- the Sp instinct would make more sense as linking to that.

    But I wouldn't be questioning the correlation if I knew that the source of your statistic was trustworthy -- and you didn't answer my question before. So..?
    There are a couple sources on the web that I'm aware of. One source simply stated it as a fact, the other source gave the actual percentage which was very helpful. That source mentioned ISFJs as well in this.

    I see nothing wrong with this. I see something wrong with asserting, ad hoc, that an Si will report more chronic pain, and then looking for evidence to prove it. At least statistical analysis has a certain correlative relevance.

    One thing I have noticed in my personal life is that the ISXJ does not complain overtly about chronic pain. So the actual percentage may be under-reported due to dishonest reporting. And in my experience, the ISXJs have a high tolerance for pain. They are aware of it, and they find means to manage it, but it doesn't keep them from pursuing their activities unless it becomes debilitating. It isn't used as an excuse to quit.

    That's why whenever I see an Xbox 360 I do a 360 and walk away from it.

    I think it's the opposite.
    They are aware of it... It isn't used as an excuse to quit.
    Oh, well maybe that.

    Chronic pain, not personally. Although my hands and feet seem to cramp up very easily.

    I don't think it's totally wacky to suggest a correlation. It was probably imagined as an effect of SJs exposing themselves to stress, as well as the sensitivity to such internal imbalances.

    Then let me just say that I'm talking about the ISXJ's that I've known.

    I've seen and read more references to chronic back pain.

    Actually... my mom is ISTJ and has chronic pain also, but she has a really fucked up hip and has had many surgeries. She gets migraines all the time, too, but I think she has an eating disorder.

    So basically I have no relevant data.
