INFJ Myers-Briggs personality types love to get lost in their own thoughts and do well with very little social interaction. But there is one thing they don’t do well with—not having heart-to-heart discussions. Below are some reasons why connecting with others at a deep level is significant for the well-being of INFJs.
Meaningful Conversations help INFJs…
1 FEEL CONNECTED TO OTHERS-
Shallow and menial conversations of everyday life can confuse and frustrate INFJs, making them feel disconnected. But, connecting with others at a deep level does just the opposite.
2 SHARE WITH OTHERS-
INFJs have a strong desire to teach, advise, and instruct others. Usually when INFJs speak—people listen.
3 GET CONFIRMATION-
INFJs have a tendency to be tough on themselves and have lots of self-doubt. They often find support in talking to other people they trust or respect.
4 FIND PIECES TO PUZZLES-
Often deep conversations add missing pieces to INFJ’s theories to help them see the bigger picture. They can often experience “aha” moments and get hunches during discussions.
5 KNOW OTHERS-
INFJs have a strong desire to know others at the deepest and sincerest level possible. The results are therapy-like conversations.
6 SEE EVIDENCE-
INFJs are highly intuitive and often can know things before they happen. Heart-to-heart talks can reveal proof of their insights. This helps them to stop second-guessing themselves and build trust in their inner guide.
7 AVOID INSOLATION DISEASE –
Even though INFJs can be hermit-like, they need social interactions to stay fulfilled. Because they thrive on deep connections, too much time alone can leave them feeling fearful, lost, and depressed.
INFJs have a drive to progress, grow, and better themselves. They need to take on new challenges to their thinking regularly, and meaningful conversations are part of that.
9 COME ALIVE-
Let’s face it, finding connections and having deep relationships mean everything to an INFJ. Without them, they tend to lose their life’s purpose and feel unworthy.
