Maybe you know an INFJ and have witnessed the phenomenon known as the INFJ Door Slam.
Or maybe you’re the door slamming INFJ who would like to better understand why you do what you do with people who’ve exhausted your compassion.
After all, cutting people off completely is not your go-to. It’s a last resort. It’s not something you enjoy doing to anyone, but when you reach that point, it becomes easy to walk away from the one who’s crossed the line. You can do it without hesitation – and without feeling anything but relief.
It’s not a zen thing. It’s the INFJ’s way to protect themselves from someone who has hurt them deeply — probably someone they thought or hoped they could trust.
But is it permanent?
And do all INFJ people do this?
Or more importantly, is there a way to open the door again?
And what would it take?
