    My ISFp wife becomes distant (moreso than usual) when she's depressed, and she is more inclined to act impulsively--anything to restore her natural inner comfort and naturally peaceful and harmonious inner balance (and she can be outrageously selfish during such periods--restoration of harmony and comfort must come before everything else in her world). She will often escape into fantasy in order to avoid whatever is causing disharmony or discomfort in her life.

    Speaking of typical ISFp mental disorders, it appears that ISFp tends (when unhealthy) toward Cyclothymia, or so I discovered here: PTypes - Cyclothymic Personality Disorder Criteria

    when you're depressed do you look like me? because i've dealt with depression on some level most of my life. right now i'm not too bad but yeah so think when i'm at my worse depressed wise and do you look like me. as i am 76% sure i'm an ISFP. of course not all ISFPs when depressed will look like me. you shouldn't take my advice.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    As an ENFj, when I am depressed I lean toward obsessive-compulsive behavior. I become hypervigilant (just trying to figure out how to "fix" my all-consuming emotional turmoil, yet seldom coming up with a satisfactory "answer" or "solution"). I start to distrust my strong Ni. I can't "see" the future as well, so I can't figure out what to "do" to fix the problem. I then become cranky and critical.

    ENFj is a natural "performer," and my "performance" in all areas of my life suffers when I am depressed. I procrastinate. I fail to perform as well for people who are depending on me. Since I want to perform well (I want the applause and admiration, you see), I start to hate myself even more when I am not performing well. That spirals down into more hypervigilance in trying to find a "fix" or an "answer" that can calm my emotional storm and allow me to perform well once again. I often turn to foreign substances to allow me to "calm down" emotionally and then focus on the things I need to do in order to feel like an "almost adequate, but never quite good enough" performer.

    I don't think that resembles how an ISFp would respond to a lengthy period of depression.

    Introverted Feeling types are flexible, open, complicated, mild, modest, and often self-effacing.Though difficult to get to know, they are seen as trustworthy confidants who are tolerant of a wide range of differences.Their habitual approach to people is nonjudgmental, understanding, and forgiving. They place a high value on affirming both their own and others’ individuality and uniqueness.They seek to affirm all parties in a controversy and thus readily see the validity of contradictory points of view.
    I find this interesting as the common perception people hold seems to be the opposite, not this. This is actually what I use to determine IFP.

    Its really awful too, not only because I can't help her, but also because I don't even know that something's wrong until afterwards.
    This is what I do when depressed. I just disappear from life as much as possible which I already keep to myself as is so it becomes a crazy extreme. I don't think you can tell a depressed IP unless you early get to know them. We are usually good at distancing ourselves when needed for short bursts when we have to. We will dissappear alot more then normal. I am not an ISFP, one letter off, but I would go to bed at 7:00pm to escape life. Just lay there and process and think about stuff. Was a really bad part of my life and a couple times I had to get up and walk off a tightness and pain in my chest because I didn't want to go to ER. My emotions were destroying me, no one had any idea. Not even others who were around me or lived with me. I would say an ISFP would be destroyed by thought. They knew something was up, but not the depth of what was going on.

    @SearchingforPeace Excellent link, thanks.

    And, if I haven't said so before, I am very fond of your sig. line: Jesus said "Blessed are the peacemakers" not "blessed are the conflict avoiders.....

    To me, and for me, conflict avoidance has been a complete and lasting nightmare from which I hope to one day awaken.

    I had that ephihany while talking with my INFJ 9w1 sis who is separated from her bipolar ESFP husband. I had a lot of great help to see that we can not truly love unless we love with our entire heart, the bad feelings with the good. Only when we don't hold back do we get show trust that we can be loved even when there is conflict. And peace often requires conflict in order to secure true peace.

    And as I learned through tremendous effort, there is nothing you can do to fix your wife except work on yourself. By you getting healthier, either she does too or you get healthy enough to break free. Your efforts really need to be focused on yourself and loving yourself.

    pure withdrawal including mental withdrawal from the world and self is what ISFP will do.
