    I put INFP because no one hates INFPs more than themselves. lol.

    But secondly, I'd say INTJs, because they often lack the decisiveness or directness of strength to see their fancies through to fruition without having someone else do it.

    This sounds more like INTPs. We are more likely to force implementation of our "fancy", regardless of its merit or the consequences, at least if we don't engage our other functions (and other people's views) sufficiently.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Self sabotage when feeling down or when life is good? I really don't think i have observed any rl examples for the latter though i will readily name quite a few for the former including myself.

    The better question would have been whats the self destruct mechanism if each type. We all have our falling over moments but its the particular manner of it which defines us.

    I voted INFP because it seems that each preference is directed inward moreso than its opposing dichotomy. Not surprisingly, INFPs are reportedly more likely to attempt/commit suicide in college. An unhealthy INFP is like a vacuum of negative energy sucking itself into oblivion. Introversion is more self-oriented than extroversion. Intuition often dwells in the past (reflecting on failures and shortcomings, when unhealthy) and the future (which looks bleak when being analyzed through a cynical lense), which has been linked to both anxiety and depression, rather than living in the moment. Feeling is more subjective and personal than thinking. And perceiving is constantly taking in information, analyzing, questioning, doubting, and delaying conclusions; whereas, judging is more certain, decisive and perhaps confident. INFPs might be cursed with being the most self-centered of all types, not necessarily self-serving, but focused inwardly to such a degree that it may lead to a number of neuroses if not dealt with appropriately.

    A healthy INFP, on the other hand, is just peachy.
