    Default So, what is your malfunction?

    you are here.. not by chance, nobody on this forum is sane. This place is an asylum where we voluntarily check in and stay.
    Its time to admit it, if you haven't already. Spill it.. you know you want to scribble it on these walls.




    /o\ why did I post this here and not the psychology subforum!? This is what I get for posting during work..

    I've got legit issues but I'm not willing to go into detail.

    Also, I'm bored too.

    That room is prettier than mine.

    Dunno. I say it is a mind that fuses inner worlds with external. Some sort of perceptual oddity. It runs in family and no one has been psychotic.
    So I'm weird, eccentric, very hardly relating and do not get why other people perceive my feels wrong way. As such I do not share same values as regular mortals. Idiosyncratic person.
    Measuring you right now

    I'm very insane, but I've adapted it to very functional. So I guess I'm really normal then.

    I'm not sure what it is which probably means it's pretty bad. One reason at least is that I don't really meet creative and original people that are also intelligent elsewhere in my life.
    I didn't end up here by chance though, I wanted to understand why I was magnetically drawn to certain kinds of people and turns out they're mostly beta NF, especially IEI.

    I don't want to drop any domains since they can get truly crazy but... I've probably been on the same psychology forum sites? Haha. I used to lurk there as a teenager. It's cool that you've probably been to the same sites.

    Yeah, it's pretty tame today.

    People used to threaten to kill each other all the time. Most of the moderators have received death threats for doing their jobs. One user threatened to stab his gay ex-boyfriend if he ever set foot in New York. A real life schizophrenic stalker-lady used to post here and stalked another member. There's even a thread somewhere where users uploaded pictures of their genitals, which technically makes this a porn site.

    This is the ship of lost souls of the Internet.

    My malfunction is that semi-duality (?) f*** up my brain and now I want it back
    I like to teach others, even though I consider myself to be the most ignorant person alive.
    So if I impose my opinions on you, don't take them as arrogance. It's just that I have a strong willingness to share knowledge.

    The more we focus on something, the clearer it gets, but all the rest of the universe gets blurrier. This applies to our thoughts, emotions, feelings, senses, etc. A great part of living can be summarized as the development of the ability to switch our attention to different aspects of our reality in order to achieve that which we want to see as a completely new kind of reality.

    Huh? Semiduality itself? Not anything the other person did except have the wrong Socionical relation? Dude, I doubt that being exposed to Fe fucked you up.

    sure, IR can be any
    In case of semiduality - they have specific issues of different values. Those issues may annoy significantly, but not to hard degree (as strong functions are same). Semiduality catches by the good what gives complementation for base function what is higher than stable and annoying issues there. People are not compatible perfectly by different traits, so something will be disliked anyway and will need efforts to adopt.
    Also. Though to have complementary functions is good, this does not mean that weaknesses will not be a problem for both. They are easier to deal in a way of parrent-child, but this is not what is only a pleasure. Harsh behavior of logical types will hurt F types more than T types may expect, even when that is a dual.
    Also. To have a function as strong does not mean a human's behavior is perfect there and takes into account your interest on 100%. You may be hurted by duals too - by their intentional and not actions in their ego regions. So to have relations with a dual, does not mean you'll not get problems from him in any of regions by "nontypes reasons". Good IR are one of factors to help good relations to appear and so sometimes you may get bad and hurting relations, despite there are good IR. The examples are in marriages of duals which were ended, while not all good IR relations come to marriages and there is more of such dramas. We may hope that good IR significantly reduce problems of bad relations. There stays some % of bad relations in good IR, anyway, and it's possibly to get that - by different reasons: personal, environmental and what efforts people do for good relations.
    And also in general case, if to take good IR. In case of geting close feelings to those people, appears a problem of an addiction. It can be rather strong. If suddenly to loose those communications - it's possibly to get significant depressive symptoms. A brain wants that "drug" again. It should be similar to loose good friends or to loose parrents for a small child, as good IR predispose to those emotions and other support.

    > Dude, I doubt that being exposed to Fe fucked you up.

    In my own experience are 2 cases of strong feelings to semiduals, but those relations in sum hurted me a lot. Including by behavior related to Fi. In one of cases I was offenced by more of external reasons and did some stupid mistakes, then tried to restore with nothing good. In other case external factors and "nontypes" factors were too significant, besides my pushing behavior after offencing situation. By Fe I got kicks too, heh, but mostly by related to Fi as it's base function.

    Took the mbti for a college 101 class & got interested in personality psychology & then took some psych classes in college. First made an account on personalitycafe possibly 7 yrs ago? Mostly been off & on typologycentral for a good 5 yrs.

    Free time in college along with an interest of better understanding my self, my mind, & behaviors along with that of others was what started my original interest.

    Got re interested after not really spending time on any of these sites for possibly 2 yrs after talking about mbti & enneagram with a co worker. Very rarely posted at the time, because I was way more busy with work & other things.

    Been out of work lately & boredom's really set in & I've been laying off of social media, so I guess these types of forums seemed like a way to escape my boredom instead & hopefully connect to others & learn some new info.

    My boredom also leads to depression/anxiety when I can't keep occupied with activities or throw myself into 40+ hours of work a week. Idle time is the absolute worst.

    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

    In my case I found that despite me doing what I have been taught to do all my life.. it only resulted in this sense of emptiness and crushing nihilism / depression. So, I started searching for a way to fix my situation. Eventually I realized that I wasn't alone in this and so after trying to swallow the "improvement pill".. I came to understand that not only I was broken, but most other people as well were being crushed by currents and forces outside of themselves operating on a materialist programming that is driving and generating this bleak nihilistic perspective. Which is how I found Nietzsche and the phrase "Become who you are." This started a tendency in me that I still have, that is of analyzing not only other ppl around me, but myself as well, "why do I do X?" "what is the root cause of Y behavior in me" "why did I feel that?" and so on. Eventually it led to MBTI via my university (psychology and education), then Enneagram and later Socionics and this purgatory of some sorts. e_e my interaction with people here wasn;t all that fruitful, but I did find some of the inmates to be interesting people and grew to like them. Eventually after being burdened with too many possibilities for my socionics type I got angry and decided I'll just bite the bullet and go seek the shaman atop this damn mountain, maybe he can give me guidance & insight . So I contacted Gulenko and he gave me my answer. I was skeptical at first... but I couldn't shake the feeling, the same one when I got typed enneagram type 6.. so I read and looked and yeah, the puzzle just snapped together. I was doing all these things because of LSI or maybe I was LSI, because I was doing all these things? At any rate, coming here turned out to be a blessing in disguise.




    finding this also led me down roads to try and find ways to fix society or at least to fully comprehend WTF is going on and why this ROT is present in modern society. I wanted to know what it could be that would turn a young obedient kid like into a depressed nihilist who had found no meaning in life. So I learned about history, politics, geopolitics and more philosophy. I think I know now, but that is something for another time I guess, with the right beta crowd.. maybe we'll succeed in "turning the tide". I realized not so long ago, that I had a meaning in life, I was just not fully aware of it.. but i was always on the road to it's fulfillment.

    Soon.. tho, now I have a goal, now I can structure myself towards it with single minded determination. Now I build myself into the tool that can accomplish the task.

    I’ve been wondering about that for 25 years. I probably have a few faulty parts, some wrong from the factory, others broke, and some rusty, but I manage

    I'm socially stubborn af. I just don't like being expected to behave a certain way when I don't even like or respect that many people. Most people seem to have too many flaws for me to actually care about what they think unless they actively try to get on my good side to begin with.

    I just rarely take advice from people until I know 100% where they stand in relation to me... even with my parents I'm like, don't give me advice until you actually want to get to know me and who I am and where I'm interested in going.

    So yeah, my malfunction is stubbornness and doing things my way until somebody jolts me in a direction because they are in it with me rather than just standing there talking. I guess that is why I'm 9w1

    Sleep apnea. I can't function on suboptimal sleep, full stop.

    I can't conjure up fake emotions when it's socially expedient. I do not have the energy.

    Feels like I've also lost attention span and IQ points in the past couple years.

    Cyclothymia and social phobia:

    People with cyclothymia experience both depressive phases and hypomanic phases (which are less severe than a full hypomanic episode). The depressive and manic symptoms in cyclothymia last for variable amounts of time due to the unstable and reactive nature of the disorder. The depressive phases are similar to major depressive disorder and are characterized by dulled thoughts and sensations and the lack of motivation for intellectual or social activities. Most people with cyclothymia are generally fatigued and tend to sleep frequently and for long periods of time.However, other people experience insomnia.
