So, I am an ENFJ and my 16-year-old is an INFP. She is also a Type 4 on the Enneagram. What I am looking for is some advice (primarily from INFP's) on how to best relate and get along with her. Feel free to reply with what your parents did right or wrong, or what you wish they had done with you.
Some background: I adore my daughter and she is very much the stereotypical INFJ. Most of the time she lives in her own world and on the internet. She is extremely sensitive and is actually going to counseling for depression/anxiety. She definitely uses Fi. We dont get along all that well and I think it is largely because I want to talk out issues and she retreats and needs alone time. I have finally realized over the last few years that there are times I need to just back off and give her space, but I would like to do better with her. She is a major sweetheart and I appreciate that about her, but we still butt heads weekly. She actually does better with her ENFP dad, but I think that is partly because I usually enforce the rules in the house and she doesn't like that.
Thanks in advance!
