Where wild minds come to rest

I have a strong feeling that personality types are connected to one's likelihood of developing MD, so I wanted to ask all of you to share your personality types! (I'm talking about the MBTI)

For those who don't know, there's a psychological study involving 16 distinct personality types that you can be categorized as, and the study is referred to as the MBTI. If you don't know your type, Google "16 personality types" and it will be the very first site that comes up. I think it's 16personalities.com .

Mine is INFJ

My personality type is ENFP
I'm the only one in my immediate family with this type and as far as I know, am the only one with Maladaptive Daydreaming. 

I am ENTJ. My lack of external support and lack of friends, meaningful relationships are the causes of MDD

 I'm INFP-T !

I yam INFJ-T.

I'm and INTJ. So apparently that means I'm really anylitcal. Oy my daydreams get really tied up in philosophical questoque so I guess that makes sense. 

Ahhh I knew it! "P" 's are generally more creative than "J" 's, but since I'm a J, I didn't think it made too much of a difference. I didn't think F/T mattered, but I was almost positive most daydreamers were "IN" 's~~
Oh jk I just saw Monster's reply

This discussion crops up every few months. Lots of people have commented on this. From what I remember from past discussions, a majority self-identifed as INFP, INFJ, ENFP and INTJ, with a smattering of the other types. INFP was the most common, I think. Fewer people identified as the SJ types.   

 Typology is really fascinating. I didn't believe it at first, until I really started researching and observing. Now it's difficult not to see patterns of type behavior in people. And not just behavior, but their faces, too. I think physiognomy is a real phenomenon. When you compare persons of the same type, they look identical, and this is true regardless of ethnicity. I'm just a bit stunned about it all.

I hope if you're still interested that you investigate the other systems of typology. Some overlap and are a bit redundant: MBTI and socionics, for example. But the Enneagram of Personality, the tritype theory, and the instinctual variants stand alone as distinct dimensions of personality. It's like looking at the x, y, z axis and realizing that there's a three-dimensional personality there, once you understand how all these elements fit together. It's enough to say that the combined knowledge in these systems constitutes  a complete theory of personality that is capable of predicting what a type will look like and why it behaves that way. I have no doubt we will eventually identify all the types. It's only a matter of time and big data. Imagine, what if all of us are just variations on a theme, a copy of a personality type that was randomly generated at birth? It just boggles the mind...

Anyway, please talk to me. I have no one else to compare notes with. My full type is INFJ, 6w5, Sp/(Sx)/So, Tritype 6-4-1. The only other system that I've found to be useful for typing is the Big 5, but it's not very precise. It's better for doing studies, I would imagine, because of it's sheer simplicity, but it's nowhere near as predictive as the above mentioned systems. Give it time. We will certainly know within our lifetimes whether the above is definitively true.  

I am INFP!

I can't remember if I've done this before, but it's really interesting. I got INFJ-T.

My personality type is ENFJ-A.
