this is my first post on the NT forum I think...
I've a friend who is an INTJ and is undergoing therapy for depression. What can I do as an INFJ to help? What 'language' can I speak?
I no longer recognize the courageous woman I once knew and admired. She's been made redundant recently and prior to that, has been bullied by a boss from hell. My friend has always been a straight-shooter but the conniving bitch finally got her out of a job in which she excelled. My friend's competency was called into question at every turn. She's had to keep good records of every decision she made because everything got twisted to make her appear at fault...
Any INTJ who's been through similar hell and back?
I've always known any INTJ in my life to be so self-reliant and never seen an INTJ fall apart like that. It's worrisome. But then the last few years have been very rough for her. You cannot keep on working in a toxic environment without it finally chipping away at your defenses. To make matters worse, her hubby is not really that supportive though she insists "he's put up with her so much" and it bothers me but I cannot and should not interfere, only listen.
Thank you for reading my rant... Any feedback would be appreciated.
