    I like books that offer clarity/insight, which tends to be more neutral, and offers various perspectives.

    With books that are too biased? I feel as though, it doesn't really help me to grow as a person, but to hinder my abilities to truly understand/see reality for what it is..

    Everyone will have their own set of interests, their own life path, so whatever material we read, I think that for me, there is always a level of discernment.. that discernment helps me to grow/shapes my view of life accordingly..

    I guess, there are no books that will really offer all the answers? Most of the answers are within us, and those books help to guide us. But our internal happiness is something that we make peace of in our everyday lives?

    Thumbs up martyr complex books

    Boundaries, a book on boundaries is what all NFs need. And how to be assertive vs. aggressive or passive.

    haha sorry I just noticed you mentioned The Problem of Pain and it is sitting on my desk right now as I read this thread. Silly ENFJ's how are we all so alike yet live lives completely different. What were the odds of that happening?
