    Anxiety and sometimes panic, It's not too bad though, I just breath in deeply until it passes, never seen a doctor about it cause it seems to be happening less and less

    I'm very rarely anxious or panicky, but I'm often depressed.

    If apathy is a form of depression, then yes.

    Also, pretty damn obsessive and OCD extreme, but I taught myself how to control the most obvious tells.

    Yup. Lifetime battle against apathy punctuated by the very rare bout of anxiety.

    Eh, anxiety, depression, and OCD run in the family, although I've had none of them in clinical severity. (although the anxiety has come close)
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Yes, severe panic attacks, then I learned how to cope with them and recognize them for what they were. However, I do believe my NT tendency to "fix" myself and have social anxiety, coupled with the perfectionism I've had since childhood, led to both the panic attacks and the depression that hit me years later. Same root issues, but this time it manifested as depression because I had control of the panic attacks.

    I've learned to use my depression as an asset, though. In a way. It's a reminder that I can't fix everything if I just thought about it long enough. I'm not a system with a flaw.
