Warning: the following post may be too deep for non-INFJs! 😉😜
I don’t know what it is that makes INFJs so drawn to emotion. But, we are. We crave depth and meaning in the world and search for it in the mundane. Emotion-filled books, songs, photography, music, and more, touch us like we can’t explain. Anything that lacks, or appears to lack, depth is considered shallow and pointless to us.
Certain books (Sometimes things other than books make me react this way, as well.) give off a depth and emotion that is almost addictive to me. They evoke unknown feelings and draw me into a different reality. Sometimes the place they draw me into is so overwhelming I have to quit reading, in order to shed all the emotion I’ve soaked in. I am not completely sure if this is particularly an INFJ trait or not, but I know I experience this quite often.
INFJs are often times called “emotional sponges”. I believe that analogy is perfect; I really do feel like a sponge sometimes. We INFJs subconsciously absorb the majority of the emotions around us. Especially if we are close to the person who is giving off the emotion. Many times we will feel the emotion even more strongly than they are. This, also, is overwhelming for us.
So, in conclusion, (Thanks to all of you who are still reading!😜😉) INFJs are very deep individuals; we love depth and are quite deep ourselves. To many of you who are not INFJs, these INFJ posts may seem like information-overload, but, at the end of every one of them, I feel like I’ve left so much out! This is probably the reason for the endless parts I am in the process of creating!
