    Misanthropy, withdrawal and a refusal to enage with society. Internally there a sense of emptiness or bleakness about life, inspiration is hard to come by and when it does come it is soon drowned by the voice of pointlessness. It feels like a rudderless ship on a dark sea.

    I thought it goes through Se and then into a grotesque of an ENTP.

    I'd expect the latter to be something like an obsession with losing yourself into a sea of endless opportunities, not bound by a single path, having an overwhelming need for an "anything is possible" outlook.

    This along with a rigidity on the inside and inner mental order, which might feel like disconnecting from your emotions and yourself (imagine losing yourself on the inside of who you are) and a feeling of inner objectivity and kind of emptiness (your inner world freezing over at absolute zero).

    There might be some form of twisted interest in other people and judging them morally/emotionally in a negative way. Feeling disconnected from others and that might bother you.


    This is a guess ofc based on what theory tells me. I'd be curious to know you recognize any of those (Ne-Ti-Fe) in your states.

    This i have been through a year and a half back or something. im not saying the rest is wrong, but that this is surtain. It was more in spesific situasjons.

    That said i have been lower in my life and i was different then but that again might be a age difference. its close to 10 years since the last comparable state.

    it's hard to imagine INTJs being depressed for long time. They would get out of it quickly

    What makes you say that? For me, a decade and counting.

    That's pretty much exactly how it would manifest with anybody, I think.

    Probably random weepiness too, I would think.
