INFJs: Are you good at keeping in touch with people?
I read that keeping in touch with people is part of Fe. However, this is not one of my strengths. For example, I don't keep in touch with people from former jobs. I'm just curious how this compares to most INFJs.
Unless there is a strong connection with someone, I leave my past behind me.
In general true for me - with those I've become friends with, I stay in touch, although communication may be infrequent. With former coworkers/classmates/acquaintances, I guess I just don't see much point in maintaining contact. *shrug*

Once I consider someone a good friend I am very good at keeping in touch with them, even if they live in a different country or I don't see them for several years. Of course there needs to be some kind of at least irregular response from the other person for me to keep staying in touch.
With people that are mere acquaintances I may add them on Facebook to keep a very thin connection, one never knows if one might need the advice or help of a specific person one used to know. I also tend to respond very quickly at least with a short email if one of these people contacts me, I would find it very rude just to ignore them.
A lot of coworkers, classmates etc I don't stay in contact with unless perhaps they want to add me on Facebook. I tend to leave the past behind me without really looking back, unless there was some real connection between me and a person or I feel it might be helpful to have you as a contact I don't see much of a point in staying in touch.
No. And I get berated for it all the time. Sometimes I'm just too busy, lazy, forgetful, fill in the blank. And sometimes it's on purpose.
Ditto this. I am terrible at keeping in touch. I keep telling myself that I'll be sorry one day, so that usually gets me on the phone.
I hate the phone.
