i'm new to all this, so maybe it's been covered elsewhere in another thread, or in a profile somewhere online. if so, feel free to point me in that direction and i'll be on my way :)
but if anyone else can relate to this...here's my question:
i'm not insecure, clingy, or have self esteem issues. i've got my flaws, as does everyone, but in the scheme of things, i'm not so bad :) i'm confident in myself, i'm happy with who i am, look for areas of improvement, and try to keep all that in perspective. and i work to make sure those around me are happy and harmonious.
and yet, i have this (sometimes irrational-seeming) need to connect with people *positively*, to improve relationships, etc. and it seems that i, more than most, stress over potential misunderstandings or tensions in relationships. can anyone relate to this (other infjs)? do you find that relationships (either that you're in, or that you observe amongst others) are more important to you than to others? how do you deal with the stress of being the one who notices and cares?
(this may also be a wild extrapolation to all infjs...feel free to point if it doesn't really apply. like i said, new to all this :)
