    I'm not sure this is unhealthy or not, but during a bad time I fell into the habit of crawling into my mind and constructing a "parallel universe" with my imagination. In this world, there was no exam stress, impending coursework deadlines, an empty social life etc. In fact, the new idyllic life in my mind was so much better I detached myself from the real one. I bunked college and became a recluse, staying at home the whole time. I turned more paranoid and cynical, convinced that all the teachers and students despised me. The more I avoided reality, the more paranoid I became of it and everyone, and so I avoided it some more. I think the only way I broke out of the loop was when my mum had the day off and the school rang, saying I hadn't been attending lessons all week. And then I burst into tears, which bewildered the two of us.

    I guess it's more of a young INP thing, then specifically INTP.
    Um, yeah.

    If they can be MADE to feel worthless, then they probably really are worthless... just a thought.

    -refused to deal with any problems. I knew they were there, I just didn't have the ability to face up to them to move past it.
    -sought out attention in any way, even if it was ill obtained.
    I absolutely don't relate in any way.
    Especially for the part "to get used". More unhealthy I am, more I don't let people push me off in any minimal way.
    I wonder if I am really an intp. I relate more with user Ace (entj)...

    My dad who is an older INTP (late 40's) is prone to drinking a lot, and the general consensus of stressed out INTPs resorting to substance abuse fits. He even uses humour as a way to avoid the issue:

    Me: ...but it's the middle of the week?
    Dad: I'm drinking to forget, see.
    Me: Forget what?
    Dad: Can't remember.

    I think it's his job.

    I don't relate to substance abuse at all, nor the risk seeking behavior. I more relate to Grungemouse's personal story about complete avoidance and a detachment from reality, into an inner world that doesn't hurt so much. Also, over-indulgence in "escape" activities is something I do too [video games, books, etc.]

    You are only worthy of what you can achieve, and you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it.

    I'm probably unhealthy, but I don't abuse any substances.

    However, I am very depressed. And I have a tendency to think very hypothetically, and my mine gets cluttered with analysis of all the things I could possibly do right now, with my life, and about my life, and I collapse under the weight of my doubts and assumptions, and find myself doing nothing at all, withdrawing further into my room, into my mind, and become neurotic.

    So how's that?
    Go to sleep, iguana.
