    I advocate evidence and reason, while mbti is a form of hypnosis, quite like astrology.

    And remembering the sleep of reason brings forth monsters.

    What is your MBTI?
    I'm typed anywhere between INTJ, INFJ, INFP, sometimes ENTP (mostly in real life)- including it because it may be relevant.
    I don't relate to the stereotype of any of those (nor do I appear like any of them) so it wouldn't be too informative.
    I put more stock into Enneagram however- tritype 53X (either 9w8 or 8w9, inclined towards the latter).

    What mental illlness(es) have you been diagnosed with?
    Major depression / later discovered to be Bipolar disorder, ADHD, social anxiety, PTSD.

    How, in your own words, would you describe your personality?
    I have Bipolar, so I'll explain the 'spectrum' of my personality;
    Normal: cheerful, sanguine, and optimistic, seemingly extroverted, friendly, yet distant, deliberate, and cautious with a touch of coldness that is not obvious at first.
    Manic: energetic, scattered, insensitive, sociable, arrogant, "looks like he has never doubted himself in forever, brimming with confidence".
    Depressed/low: critical, impatient, brooding- anywhere between temperamental and combative or melancholic and cynical.

    A common thread that remains in all states is a degree of cautiousness, even when manic.

    Do you think your type affects the way you express symptoms of your mental illness, or even what symptoms you express? If so, how?
    Sometimes I do. Also, definitely affects what I express- as a 5 core (or introvert in general), I default to detached thinking before acting as a main strategy in anything, so compared to others with ADHD and Bipolar, I am much more calculating and cautious than you might expect- I don't tick the 'obvious' outward symptoms checklist of impulsiveness, for example. If I had been a reactive or ID type like 4, 6, 7, 8, I'm sure I would appear much differently.

    Any other comments?
    I'd like to add that due to mental illnesses (or mood disorders, or personality disorders), descriptions of 'personality' would be very... Misleading, especially for those born with it. It's rather unstable due to the nature of the illness/disorder in itself (especially really unstable personality disorders like NPD, BPD, DPD) and does not characterize or even hint at the person's 'real' personality, not necessarily.
    For example, my energy level / energetic appearance may not necessarily be a part of my personality, it is the mind in dysfunction and causing me to feel and become energetic. In other instances, it would not apply. An easy way to keep this in mind is depression as an example- it characterizes a person for a while, till it's gone. It (thankfully, for neurotypical 'healthy' people) does not 'change' their personality (or mindset, at least not forever), only what and how they manifest.

    What is your MBTI? INFJ
    What mental illlness(es) have you been diagnosed with? Schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type
    How, in your own words, would you describe your personality? Moody as hell, fond of routine and safeness, (sp dom), loyal but critical of others, opinionated but trying to be open-minded
    Do you think your type affects the way you express symptoms of your mental illness, or even what symptoms you express?
    If so, how? Yes. INFJs can be very insecure and that is expressed in delusions of persecution.

    What option does one answer if they do not currently have a mental illness but have had one in the past?

    For those who do not currently have a mental illness but have had one in the past:
    What is your MBTI?
    What mental illness(es) were you diagnosed with?
    How, in your own words, would you describe your personality?
    What led to the resolution of the above?
    Did your type affect the way you expressed symptoms? If so, how?
    Did your type affect your recovery? If so, how?

    1)INTP

    2)PTSD, PTSD, and acute anxiety.

    3)Thoughtful, logical, funny...

    4)Well the cause probably was having awkward coping mechanisms and wanting to be appreciated. If one grows up with a schizophrenic parent they probably just learn avoidant tendencies towards problems, but that does not work in grown up situations like at work. So resolution was probably just learning the art of not giving a f*^$ rather than being on edge and expecting something bad to happen. Just accepting people are annoying and just looking forwards not backwards.

    5) Presumably it was the other way around as the illnesses brought out shadow personality type; conflict between rational and shadow emotion state.

    6) Not sure

    ENFP

    Generalized Anxiety Disorder. ADD, and ADHD (I've been diagnosed with both on separate occasions for some reason)


    I am a naturally curious person who is generally friendly towards others. I often have found myself as the source of humor in conversations, it's a role I sort of slip into unconsciously. I tend to over think as well, and often have my head in the clouds.

    I think my GAD has caused me to act in a manner that is more introverted over the years. It's been a huge influence in my life and a problem, but it's extremely well-managed now as long as I take my medication regularly.

    Although my anxiety is much better now, I by no means consider myself cured. Though I have dealt with depression in the past, but that seems to be behind me (for now at least).
