    Actually I take that back, its my family who are losers, and then I see this behavior mimicked on the forum and my problems are exasperated.

    One of the metaphors I've used to describe how I see typologycentral's group culture is a low-to-moderate-security mental ward where the patients (or their issues, more accurately) define what is and isn't reasonable human interaction between members. It creates a sort of funhouse-mirror feel to "reality" on this site a lot of time, to my perception. So IMO, a certain amount of psychological unwellness is simply built into the group/interactional culture of this site. If that is accurate, then it might make sense that participation here might encourage people to become more unwell just by being in a group culture that's skewed in that direction to begin with.

    I never really thought of this place as a psyche ward... if I didn't know any better, I'd think you're self-projecting

    1. Crazy Train! Cool song, and I'll always remember the Stewart/Colbert humorous rally with the "duel" between Osbourne doing Crazy Train and Cat Stevens doing Peace Train and then the O'Jays coming on at the end to do Love Train. Awesome.

    I find it more of a curve - and for my part, a necessary one.

    Speaking from my own experience, this forum allowed me to go bat shit when I got here coz it serves as the 'safe' sounding board one needs to flex your muscles and find out what you're capable of that irl often doesn't allow for due to the severe consequences it could have.

    So sure, they get here, find their footing, seem sane, experience the liberating freedom of expressing what you have pent up for god knows how long and eventually after a lot of struggling, fighting, raging against the machine start easing into things and finding a way to live life that doesn't make them wanna kill everything in sight. This can take a few years though and not all of em stick around long enough for it to be visible on here

    I know someone who had BPD, and he had periods of intense religiosity despite not being that religious in his upbringing, or even normally. He would go through periods where he suddenly decided religion was really important, where the rest of the time he couldn't care less. Apparently, talking to family members of his about it, he evidently genuinely believed in this grandiose stuff about how he was a prophet of God.

    I'm going to do something very unheard of for an INTP, and conclude that this is perhaps how religions get started in the first place. (Maybe not, though... it depends on if you think they are tapping into something that is actually there.)
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
