Is bipolar, schizoaffective, and depression a Darwin trait

I'm extremely depressed because I was diagnosed with Bipolar type schizoaffective disorder in November of last year. The love of my life also left me while I was in the hospital. I have this persistent thought that these mental health disorders will make romantic relationships impossible for me. I'v...

Re: Feeling guilty...HELP!

Relationships change, people change, and feelings are what they are. You're problem to me seems to hinge on the effect this guilt will have in your relationship with this guy and who is more important to you. A good best friend would be happy that you're connecting with someone. Also, he had two yea...

Re: How did you find INFP forum net?

Einstein is talking about the general relativity conclusions and how time is meaningless without comparison between two objects, the observer of light on a jet plane and an observer of the same light from the ground for example. Also the quote is actually time is the most persistent of illusions. I ...

Re: Hello

Yes, I think that's true of them for the still. It's just they don't tend to have intuition about their emotions because they activity suppress them with thinking and judgement. They look for exposure to brew ideas through connections they have previously judged to have merit in helping them think a...

Re: Are you a healer?

Yes, I am a healer. I like fixing things. I will get so wrapped up in helping the people I care about I forget to take care of myself. It's something I still don't balance as well as I would like

Re: Do you cry?

Quite frequently now, I have lost my control over it. I've let myself be vulnerable and in love too completely to not cry over the absence of the one I love

Re: Hello

I don't know. I think they did it to give themselves the power to ban people. INTJ's do tend to pass judgement

Re: Does lonliness go away or does it linger?

I am an INF (P-J) and i get it too. It does go away when you're with a person who appreciates the depth of your emotional experience. Any mbti type can be open to the intensity of feeling that you can feel for someone, but the ones in my life who I connected with in this way ended up leaving me. Whi...

Re: Favorite books, reviews, recommend a book

Yes it's lovely! The way raskolnikov changes, how the guilt makes him behave and how we follow this "anti-hero" around (sorry for lack of proper words) and the question he raises in the reader about dubious things. I can't read as fast as i would like cause I'm afraid of missing out. I think he man...

Re: Family influence

I probably always would have tested out as an INFP or INFJ. My family was hyper critical and I would not even consider asking them about their personality traits because they would become defensive about them and intractable about their own ability to change for the better. There behavior and intera...

Re: Instantiated mind

The book is called The Mind Within the Brain by Dr. Redish. Yes areas of the brain represent specialized function. There is a wide variety of experimental evidence discussed in the book.

Re: Write a Letter to your Lover

Reality is all we need to ever understand except when it comes to pretending you are in a relationship with someone who will share yours. Lets see here..... If was going to write a letter to someone I wanted to make love to, I think it would be pretty simple today. Like 2 words simple. I'm horny.
