    Default People with personality disorders getting typed into Beta Quadra

    Do you think that a lot of people with personality disorders generally get labeled as Beta?

    Are you seriously asking if Betas are more prone to personality disorders? Or maybe you're asking something else?

    Probably depends on the disorder. Histrionic, Antisocial, & Narcissistic could either possibly be described as Beta-ish or affect many Beta types. I would guess not so much Avoidant, Schizoid, and Schizotypal. Unsure about Paranoid and Dependent.

    Howard Hughes (ENFj) famously had OCD. Borderline is very pervasive compared to other disorders and can affect many different kinds of personalities.

    Any specifics you have in mind?

    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    No, I should have explained myself better. It just seemed like people generally type crazy defective people as Beta to a default, or maybe that's just me. I'm kind of regretting the fact that I made a topic about this.

    the passionate impulsiveness of many betas can lend itself to personality disorders

    Extraverted aristocrats are negativists, thus negativist quadras are generally bound to have a little heavier overtone, thus from the outside they might be seen as more prone to neurosis.

    I am ENFj and I was diagnosed with OCD at 13 (Psych said I would get better as I've gotten older).

    So ENFjs would be more prone to OCD or even OCPD.

    no offense, but i think that's a generalization. now i could see what youre getting at here since they're extrovered judging but i think OCD would almost belong more to the ENFP because they're supposedly "vigilant." I dont know. I've seen Gammas being very germ phobic, too. I'm actually dysthymic and I'm an ENFJ, too, so ... I guess you could look at a persons enneagram type for more information about them and maybe look at their levels (like in the keirsey test) if you tested their functions, because there really is some variety there, too. The long enneagram test in one of the Hudson Riso books (actually i think its a book made for testing excluseively) also shows the levels of each type a person contains and that can also be informative.

    Peace,
