Not feeling as if I’m allowed to just not smile when I’m not doing anything pisses me off. Why do people just assume if you’re not smiling you’re miserable and need help? Why do some people think it’s okay to just tell someone “Smile!”? Would you ask someone to scowl or cry? I don’t get why people think they’re helping you if they’re just commanding you to emote for their own pleasure.
This might come off as arrogant, but I think the two big differences between INFJs and INFPS is this. INFPs will ask you how you’re feeling, INFJs might but we usually already know. INFPs get their words a bit muddled when they’re mad and can’t convey their message as well, INFJs usually have a power point presentation ready ahead of time when they’re pissed off.
I’ve always had a strong sense of empathy towards other people. As a child I think this ability made me seem mature because I understood the adults around me. My ability to empathize with other people has increased greatly over the years. It kinda scares me, I can’t even watch horror films or true crime shows as much because I find myself understanding the murderers, the villains. It makes me feel filthy, but the filth is inside my brain and heart.
