I felt it might be better for us to share our own flaws and advice to others how to deal with our dark side. It'll definitely help us to understand how to deal with conflicts in crucial moments, hopefully.
Being an INFJ, I constantly need alone time to recharge. Though most people often interpreted it as we have some sort of personal issues against someone. I honestly swear when I need to shut down for a while, there could be other private issues which I need to sort it out alone. Though when it comes to desperate situation, I do often let people know and reveal a part of it.
Sometimes when I stopped having contact with others, they often felt misinterpreted it as it has to do with some issues against them--which is usually not the case.
However, I do admit that I have a bad habit of returning phone calls or text messages when I crawled up in my own sanctuary. It has often cost much unwanted troubles and misunderstanding. It's just the way I'm cored to react in resolving some personal issues, or just a melancholy state of mind.
So the best way is to just give me a little break and space, and eventually I'll start looking for you as most of the time, it's really difficult to endure lonliness. Yet, we still need those silent moments.
I'm wondering what about other NFs? Please share!
