    Unhappy INFJ Stressed Out by Sensing Family Members!

    Hello everyone! Recently, I've had a lot of trouble bonding with my ESFP father (who seems to like me a lot more than I like him), ESTP brother (always cursing), and ISFP brother (extremely annoying). My ISFJ mother gets along with me at a psychological level, but all in all, they all think that my ideas are "crazy" and I cause a lot of drama. I tried to run away from home the other day, but my INFJ-ness won't let me hurt them. May anyone please give me advice on how an INFJ can deal with all of the four previously mentioned types. I assume that being the only Intuitive family member puts a target on my back. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you might be pondering.

    Thank you all in advance!

    I'm greatly skeptical about this.
    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    You need a legitimate reason to reduce contact. I don't know if you are still in high school or what, but maybe you could get an after school job or volunteer someplace quiet until you can take off for college, hopefully at least a few hours away.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
