    Arrow and the good times keep rolling...

    I've done this three times before and I still suck at it, so I'm going to try the so-called best policy. After a long stressful summer my mom fell ill, yet again and I fell into a long depression, yet again. As I would rather not go through anxiety attacks due to the stress of my situation I buried my self in the emotionally numbing drug called apathy. It didn't work, at least not as well as it would when I was younger.
    While doing basically nothing at home following a comedy of events that I will not go into here, I stumbled across the MBTI took the test came out INFP, then ENFJ, then INTP, thought the test was mess, still do. But enjoyed reading the profiles and the functions. I'm going to skip over the part where I registered at INTPc.
    Later when Moms got out of the hospital, I was still depressed and had the 'I don't feel like doing anything' attitude that comes with depression. After an anxiety attack which may or may not have been witnessed by a class of, eh, rough estimate, 37 kids, during the part where you finally relax and all of the pain has lifted and your trying to reorient yourself, I had my epiphany, or course this happens in the nurses office of my school and the most absent minded old woman has just called my sick mother to pick me up because I'm not feeling to well, but hey the silver lining, I know who I am till something in the future proves me wrong, and I get to go home. The Comedy of Life.

    Ah, sorry to hear all that.

    Life just sucks some times. I find that you just gotta choose to be happy and the universe will follow.

    Hello, Silently Honest. Welcome to MBTI Central. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about MBTI or general psychology. In your case, we may try to provide counseling.

    Apathy isn't a good response to stress. It just avoids it temporarily... and intensifies it. Like pushing a swing (or some weighted object on a string) away from you, and then having it come back at you with a force equal to that with which you pushed it away.

    That is a perfect way to explain apathy, athenian... *thumbs up*

    Welcome Silently Honest... I hope you learn something about yourself through all of us. Hang in there...
