    Mental illness surely is a very real and difficult thing. However, I find that there is a trend in our society to want to call EVERYTHING a freaking disorder. I'm not sure how legit I believe that is.
    If you want welfare, you won't get far by claiming an mbti type.

    I'm not sure they are all bad these descriptive disorders. As long as one gets paid for it.

    Generally the only people who get "welfare" are those too mentally ill to work for at least a year. That means that many low income people with real mental illness such as bipolar disorder are decidedly not on welfare. I don't know of anyone with a personality disorder who is on welfare sheerly because of his or her personality disorder.

    You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

    I do, several. Works great. Not so much stress. This is in Europe.

    But you are right. If you can medicate the disorder. I suppose you have to do work to get benefits. So a bit of luck/unluck. As I do think it sucks to be drugged down if you're only different. And for an E, it may suck to sit home all day. Not included. But for some this can work out really well, as a security net.

    Yeah, this is the U.S. and in order to get any sort of real assistance you basically have to be drooling or talking to imaginary friends.

    You don't get much assistance here either. But if convincing enough. One does get money. I don't think they want people on the streets. So a bit of win-win there.

    INTP is the loner of all loners, so I guess it makes sense that so many of them go Schizoid.

    Yes, how pleasant it is to dwell in the unity of one's own thoughts!

    OP is probably avoidant, not schizoid.

    Nice try though.

    i think in general INTJs tend to be more loners than INTPs
