INFJs Get Chatty Around Certain People And It Leaves Them Feeling Uncomfortable And Embarrassed

  • Reading time:6 mins read

Recently, I shared a meme with my YouTube community which consists mostly of INFJs, but also of other types. It said something like, “INFJ – I don’t like how chatty I get when I feel at ease with someone.” A day later, I had 23 comments most of which were at least a paragraph long, with people describing how they felt after they had had one of these chatty sessions themselves.

It was fascinating to me to witness this because it further reinforced the idea for me that I am not alone, and even when I think I am weird because I behave one way or another, I find out that a bunch of other INFJs or people on this planet behave in exactly the same way. The loneliness that tends to creep into me, dissipates very rapidly at such a knowing. 

Thus, I decided to share this post with you and with it certain ideas on how to avoid this extra-chatty nature of yours, or even better, embrace it wholly, so it can become part of your repertoire.

[Ep 49] Show Your Vulnerable Side To Gain Connection

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about how showing our vulnerability helps us gain stronger connections.

I used to be watching and waiting for other people to open themselves first, before I would allow them to see my weaknesses, my vulnerability.

But I realized that I was wasting strong, beautiful, meaningful connections, simply by refusing to put myself out there.

I want to share with you guys how, and why, I now throw myself in the deep and open myself to people, whether to a single individual or a group.

By revealing my vulnerable side, I have gained much deeper connections, and I want to talk about it so you can do it too!

[Ep 36] 7 Days Of Learning – Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

In this third episode of the 7 Days Of Learning, I’ll be chatting about one of the best books I’ve read on shame and vulnerability.

I love Brene Brown (her Ted Talk blew me away). Her thorough research on such an obscure and hard to study topic impressed me greatly. I love her book because she has obviously felt shame and vulnerability herself and is speaking from direct experience, not just bookish knowledge.

We all experience feelings of shame at some point, yet very few of us find the courage to reach out and talk about it. We make it taboo, ignoring and letting it grow bigger than it should.

In her book, Brown takes a hard look on vulnerability, why are afraid of it and how it affects different aspects of our lives.

She does not hesitate to share some insights of her own life to illustrate her view points.
