    Did you ever see the couples' episode of Fear Factor where they locked the girls in plexiglass coffins after dumping buckets of tarantulas all over them, and the husbands/boyfriends had to work to get the coffins open as quickly as possible and release them? I think only one of the girls actually made it through the entire thing, and another one was literally reduced to hysterics.

    I still do not know if I could have done it.
    I still hate spiders, too! I thankfully just don't panic over them now. (even the tiniest of them use to make me scream!) I don't know if I could handle someone dumping buckets of tarantulas over me, though. *thud*

    This was a very interesting thread. I'm bringing it back.

    I've had GAD since I was very young but only got diagnosed and medicated for it about a year and a half ago. I used to be completely terrified of doing things like driving in an area I'd never been to before, to the point I would dig my heels in the dirt and refuse to do it and have a panic attack over it. That kind of stuff doesn't really affect me anymore. Some months ago I drove to Las Vegas with a friend of mine just off of phone GPS and didn't panic at all. I've become so much more chill in general. Thank god for that medication.

    I dont think its massively type related as much as ones brain chemistry,genetic make up and life experiences but then those previous three factors could also tie into one another to form ones type in any typing system. I could see in enneagram 1s and 6s being anxious a lot and in MBTI anyone in the grip of a inferior perception function (I notice overall inferior P tends to be paranoid while inferior J tends to more rage) and in stacking anyone whos not getting their So Sp or Sx dom needs met.

    Anxiety is a universal emotion that is needed for survival so it makes sense its one of the most universal emotions so to link to the post above its not so much the type but how its dealt with like So doms discharge anxiety by getting a secure social group, E7s discharge aniexty by engaging in distracting activies and so on so the first paragraph is for the "classical form" of anxiety

    Not really. I think different people have different issues. Although if you talk to some people introversion is a social disorder. I had friends, good people but they treated me like I was defective because I didn’t prefer the levels of interaction they did. They treated it like an affliction to overcome. They meant well but honestly that shit is insulting.

    I dont really know WHAT anxiety disorder I have- or really what Ive been diagnosed with. Panic disorder at some point. Then social anxiety disoder. And now social.

    Social and GAD were on my last 2 bills from the doctor. But then only GAD was on my last one.

    Anyways. Im a 9. But fall to 6- and that gives me anxiety.

    What kind of anxiety... I dont know. But yeah.

    Also Im on a medication that when it wears off it can cause a lot of anxiety. About an hour of pretty... intense- not to panic attack level intense but very uncomfortable- anxiety every day I take it. A level that is a lot worse than just my general level of anxiety is. But its a level Im used to- have the coping skills- to care for without it generally being a problem.

    But yeah. I have anxiety. And its definitely not fun. Im not medicated for anxiety. Anxiety is more liked the panicked BACK SEAT driver than the actual person at the wheel for me.

    I'm a 6. I AM anxiety

    I've kind of learned that what I used to consider as "anxiety" is usually more "overwhelm" from spending days on end among people with little or no alone time. Now that I accept that and retreat in my shell when necessary I'm doing a lot better. I've kind of accepted that I don't have to be outgoing all the time in my free time.
    Just knowing that I'm an e6 has made a difference too. Uptil then I wasn't even aware of that inner voice that keeps saying "watch out for this, watch out for that" every 2 steps I take.

    I would associate anxiety with ISFJs, INFJs & INFPs in particular. Just a hunch.

    I am ENFP with an anxiety disorder.

    I wouldn't say its type related, but more environment related. x:
