    I don’t think that bipolar people are more extroverted except during hypo-mania and hypo-mania is rare relative to depression. If this article references the same that was also just done, then this paper doesn’t mention that these people were in or just released from the hospital, like the other article did. People get hospitalized for mania, but rarely depression. If this is true, the sample group was horribly biased.

    I am bipolar. 40 years old. Married
    With kids. Home and business owner. I take massive umbrage against the whole western medical apparatus. It paints us in a dangerous light all the time. The language used to describe us is always pejorative. It’s not OK to dump on blacks, gays, or women but dumping on fat people and the mentally ill are perfectly OK. The hypocrisy stinks to high heaven. I was diagnosed 16 years ago. I am so tired of being judged against the standards of a mainstream culture that elects a President like Trump, chooses bombs over books, and lobbies to annihilate health care and keep the poor down. And they say that we bipolars are crazy? If y’all who support mainstream madness are “well”, then the planet is totally effed. As Oscar Wilde once said: “Everything popular is wrong.” Now that I’ve said my piece, let me take my lithium so I can sleep and wake only to slog through another day of glaring ignorance and gross hypocrisy.

    The research seems to fit perfectly with my personality traits as a bipolar 1 individual.

    This is the dodgiest article I’ve read yet, on bipolar disorder! I have a sister and 2 friends with bipolar and they are the exact opposite of all described here. What was the methodology? I disagree with the findings.
