    Default What would each type look like when depressed?

    And what function would someone in emotional stress resort to? Dual seeking?

    I don't think depression would necessarily change your external attitude or how you look. Sometimes ppl is depressed and others don't even notice it.

    Stress or anxiety, Role function.

    Some types specifics can exist.

    In despressive and tired states are more than common supressed weak and nonvalued functions. As people more rely on assured and liked regions, while other go to economy. Such is for the consciousness.
    The most noticable mb role function reduction - as weakest nonvalued.

    Mb pointed, that superego activity supresses a psyche, predisposes to depressive symptoms. Communicate with conflictors/superego IRL and then you feel yourself unusually tired.

    Emotional states are expressed in the nonverbal. Among general depressive symptoms are higher irritability, worse emotions, lesser energy impression, lesser selfassurance, higher anxiety, etc. - all that can be felt and noticed, including unconsciously.
    Someones may better control what emotions they show and surfacely have, but they are doubtful to do this absolutely and for long. And someones better understand emotional states of others (and of themselves) to be lesser fooled.
    TS types are worse than average in emotions understanding.

    They hit the bottle. Booze is a factor all types and quadras can agree on if the right circumstances or questions are posed. How/why/which drink/etc. is a matter of potentially considerable debate. I'll need some time to compile my own table but hey, if anyone here has a list/table of what they think are favorite drinks according to types/quadras than let's hear it. After all, if you're going to go "dual seeking" at a bar the least we can do is give you a relevant data set.

    Knowing what "type" or "quadra" tends to drink would help ya narrow it down in broad strokes. That's just about all we can hope for thankfully.

    Id drink if I could, red wine. Lots of it. But I haven’t drank any alcohol for 2 years this October despite having serious depression problems. Instead I’ve been binge eating and counterbalancing by extreme dieting and exercising. My weight has been going up and down in the last year more extremely than it ever has.

    October will mark a year for me. Needless to say, escaping by that route was my crutch for a long time. I also struggle with my diet and weight fluctuations in a very similar manner, eating too much/too unhealthily and then making myself go back down in weight by not eating much. Too lazy for exercise lol, though I’ve had my moments. Bicycle has always been best for me as it’s kind of fun. Need a new one.

    I go into non existent mode when I’m depressed. I withdrew from everyone and everything. No one will do much as hear a beep out of me!

    I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE

    Ah yeah. I guess I have a tendency to sleep more. Sleep more, eat more

    My mind tells me I'm not eating enough when I'm eating too much, I'm eating too much when I'm not eating enough, I need to work out more even though I just did, I need to get my body checked for strange illnesses, I need to eschew everything and live simply.. which in turn just makes me bored and sad, so I go and try something new... which disappoints me. I overthink everything, analyze everything I'm doing to make sure it's working to my benefit. And then at the end of the day, accept failure to change much at all.

    edit: and also recklessness and spontaneity and general anti-social qualities- like getting into verbal fights for no reason.

    I could go on

    I've moved beyond self sabotage and self defeating actions though

    When I was at the peak of my (diagnosed) depression and anxiety in high school, I took an online MBTI test and scored INFJ lol. I think that’s the only time I’ve ever gotten INFJ on a test in my life.

    This also happened to me too. I had disordered eating that I went to therapy for.

    There’s my specific, real-life example data point for you with diagnosed depression.

    I have never had an urge to drink. I just go into this autistic self stimulation mode of dark thought with no will power to do stuff. I see Ni as some sort of black hole.

    With depression, Ips and Ejs seem to get more observant and defensive but it may not be as noticeable with some Ips who are already defensive by nature; Eps and Ijs seem to become more thoughtful and withdraw into themselves but with some Ijs, they just go deeper so you may not notice so much of a change. Stress is a completely different can of worms and the behaviour tends to appear dual-like in limited ways.

    I don't drink when depressed because... it doesn't help. Alcohol's a depressant. I sleep

    In a world of Ni, all possibilities come to a conclusion. To an Ne-valuer, it is a world past hope, past cure, past help.*

    lol this can be very subtle/nuanced with me, since I'm so introverted naturally but I guess it's kinda like, being a Daria without her Jane or something. I push people away even more and just bring the energy down even more.

    I don't think people should always run away from sadness tho, u can surrender to it too quickly before it can mature u into being a better person or something. But yeah I think it's too dour if you do this too much and then also lose your zest for life or completely lose your sense of humor. Most of society seems to be content with making you a depressed/emotionless workaholic robot and a sadistically hateful and cynical person tho, so I think it's wise to fight back against that stuff.

    What Rebelondeck said, I withdraw and become thoughtful, but it's a bad and faulty introspection that turns into me just regurgitating everything I dislike about myself over and over until either I snap out of it or some external event does. It's like I get trapped in some existential goo and it's hard to move or do anything because of the horrible lethargy.

    After reading this thread, I asked someone close to me and they said that it’s noticeable because I very visibly slow down. I walk slower, move slower, and even talk slower. And evidently look like I’m ‘about to cry’...lol

    But I got to thinking...do I drink when I’m depressed...why have I drank in the past...honestly I think it’s to bring me down...I’m a stress drinker

    idk if I resorted to dual seeking function when stressed, since this was well before I knew socionics. I guess as far as I could tell, I sought more of Fi (or Sx? I have trouble pulling apart the two in myself).

    There is plenty of info about Te in and of itself being "dry" and I really don't feel like that kind of just...info is precisely what I was looking for. I get more joy from getting closer and closer to someone.

    For me it's definitely Fi, usually my emotional stress is correlated with Fi so it makes sense I'd start searching to to improve it.

    Ne and Ti for me.

    When I am depressed, I procrastinate a lot more then usual. I can be more emotionally reactive and ruminate a lot. The world seems scary and It can be a struggle to leave the house. I feel like grabbing at different options that will make me feel better or possibilities. It's like a double edge sword, I am thinking of negative possibilities that could go wrong or I am grabbing at any possibility that could make me feel better or safe. I just get overly critical of myself and it's hard to leave this space.

    I feel better when I am cleaning or going for a walk. It gives my brain something else to focus on and it gives me a routine I need. I feel accomplished, a little bit better, and useful. I also really need to talk to people and have connection in some way, I find that healing. Same thing works when someone shows me the bright side of things and I can get out of my dark hole. I need to see the good possibilities because I already struggle with this a bit when healthy and extremely so when unhealthy. I just need to see some colour and that it is going somewhere positive.
