    Question ISTJs and Chronic Pain?

    Do any ISTJs on this forum suffer chronic pain, or had a chronic pain issue dealt with? Do any non-ISTJs on this forum know any ISTJs who have now or some time in the past issues with chronic pain?

    Its the stick in their butts thats causing the pain, or actually wrong type of material for the stick

    It's not just ISTJs, it's ISFJs as well.

    When I first learned about this, I thought it was one of the most interesting pieces of evidence supporting the veracity of typology.

    It would make sense that Si doms would suffer from chronic pain due to extensive focus on their internal sensations.

    I have an ISFJ male neighbor who's 45 and suffers from chronic back pain -- hangs upside down every day for it.

    Where did you find this statistic?

    Personally I am VERY skeptical of linking anything physical to personality type. It's like typing someone based on facial features; what if they look exactly like a relative who is the opposite type?

    I have an ISTJ friend that has chronic back pain, but he was injured...

    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.

    That depends on what you mean by "linking." Do you mean causally? Of course it's not causal. Does the ISXJ report more bodily issues because of their dominant function? Maybe. It's just a correlation anyway.

    Whew, I'm glad you don't think it's causal! I wasn't necessarily saying you thought that -- but by "linking", I meant saying that type had anything to do with chronic pain OR saying that chronic pain has anything to do with type.

    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..?

    My 16 year old ISTJ suffers from upper back pain but that's because he spends far too much time on his Xbox and is constantly hunched over. I've even brought heavy duty sellotape to strap up his shoulders.
