Quora Answers: INFJ Problems
What Do You Struggle With Most As An INFJ?
The biggest thing I struggle with as an INFJ is my love/hate relationship with Introverted Intuition.
Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate that my intuition gives me insights and knowledge most people can’t imagine.
I’m grateful to be blessed with a unique perspective.
And I’m not trying to look a gift horse in the mouth.
But sometimes, Introverted Intuition can be a double-edged sword.
Here’s an example.
You’ve been friends with a guy since childhood.
You haven’t seen him much over the years. But the friendship remained intact.
After calling you to say he’s in town and wants to catch up, you meet him for coffee.
The first few minutes are great.
You’re enjoying reminiscing about old times.
Then all of a sudden . . . .
It hits you.
That sick feeling in your stomach that tells you something is off.
Something’s not right.
But you’re in a coffee shop with lots of people around.
So you can’t process what you’re feeling.
You don’t know why your friend suddenly repels you. You just know he does.
Suddenly, you just want to get away. Have to get away. Now. You just don’t know why. Yet.
So you get the hell out of there as fast as possible. Because you need to be alone. You need to think.
It dawns on you that your friend is no longer what he appears to be. Although you have no proof of anything.
But you know he has betrayed you in some way already. Or he is planning to betray you.
You make the decision to trust your gut. So you quietly disappear from his life.
You want to be wrong. Oh, how you want to be wrong!!
A couple of weeks later, your phone rings. It’s another friend calling to say she saw your Malignant Narcissist ex-husband recently.
The one who tried to kill you.
He and your former childhood friend were hanging out together.
Turns out your intuition was right after all.
