Which Myers-Briggs types are most prone to depression?

Today’s question is a difficult topic to address because it deals with something many people are uncomfortable talking about-

“Which Myers-Briggs types are most prone to depression?”

When people think about depression, they often think of what’s called clinical depression, which requires treatment, or regular depression, which most people have gone through at one time or another. From a medical standpoint, depression is defined as a mood disorder which causes persistent sadness and the often intense loss of interest in things that usually bring pleasure and happiness. Depression affects how you feel, think, and behave – and can affect your ability to function in your daily life.
