I wrote about the Myers-Briggs personality types and mental illnesses about five years ago. Since then I’ve had a change of heart and really don’t feel like it’s ethical to make any comparisons between types and the mental illnesses they may be more susceptible to. If you’d like to look into the correlations between personality type and mental illness further you can check out the links and case studies below, but I’ve deleted everything I’ve written on the subject just to avoid the possibility of it being harmful in any way.
