Paul's Internet Landfill/ lj/ Diagnosis


It appears that I have a personality disorder. Specifically, I have an incorrect personality -- I have been diagnosed as an INFJ or possibly an INFP. These are rare conditions which severely inhibit their sufferers' abilities to function in the real world.

Apparently there is no cure. I am told that drug and/or behavioral therapy can lessen the symptoms. There are many success stories of high-functioning INFs who manage to clothe and feed themselves. A few even hold down jobs and pay their bills, but I am not getting my hopes up.

I guess I should go for treatment. Or I could go into denial, join some sketchy mailing lists on the Internet, and use the echo-chamber effect to convince myself that the real problem is society and its oppressive labelling, not me. If it works for the ana-positive kids then maybe it will work for me as well.
