    Default what mental illnesses make people harder to type

    do you think it's specific ones? or do you think it can be any of them and it really depends on the severity. or do you think when a mental illness kicks in the type changes? I don't have an answer I want to know your thoughts

    No matter what sort of mental illness is at work, you can always get a good sense of what a person's type if you know what to look for and not accept stereotypical behaviors. As such, I don't think there is actually a great deal of mental illnesses will actually how one justifies themselves, functionally speaking. Outside of maybe having a particularly more obvious inferiority flaring.

    so your theory is that someone in psychosis is still typoble? but you need to be a really good typist? never considered that.

    Medication for mental illnesses can make people harder to type. For example, Adderall (is ADHD a mental illness?) can literally change your personality.

    I know I have a hard time typing my dad because of his ADHD. I think deep down he really is a J type, but his ADHD causes him to be unproductive and constantly late.

    I also know that when I was really depressed/having a lot of anxiety I secluded myself from the outside world and avoided spending time with friends. To someone who doesn't know me well this could have made me seem like an introvert.

    My anxiety issues and depression probably make me seem IXXJ e6 (people equate anxiety and reactivity with 6). I think mental covers the person's true/core self with shit or distorts/exaggerates it.

    Well... CBT can help those out with negative thoughts.

    Good points.

    I'd also add that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder can make someone look more J, Aspergers makes someone look more I and T, histrionic makes someone look more F. I could go on and on with this.
