INTJ vs INFJ
Here’s how you can connect with your friend better:
Both of you have complex thoughts that you may find hard to express. Make the effort to do so, no matter how incomplete it feels.
Be warm and open
Be warm and open to your friend thoughts and especially feelings. Refrain from being critical in any way.
Your friend is likely to have many unshared thoughts. Ask genuinely caring questions to get your friend to open up.
Ask your friend about his/her ideals
Ask your friend about his/her dreams and ideals about life. Don’t be critical about feasibility of their ideas – just accept it and encourage it.
Focus on personal growth
Focus on helping your friend become better by talking about personal growth through reading or personal experiences.
