I genuinely feel bad – if there’s anything to the INFP thing then maybe that’s it.
But I also know my limitations. I’m not an unlimited resource;
I’ll cheer you on at the drop of a hat and I’ll mean it. I’ll put all my heart into attaboy, you can do it, i believe in you – because I actually do believe in people’s capabilities when they put their heart into things.
But I’ll be curt and blunt about boundaries. No wiggle room. No negotiation. Brick wall, but no hard feelings for asking. I just make myself clear and will repeat as much as needed and say it in as many ways as they need til they ‘get it’ and move on to other topics.
