  1. Hi Sarah!
    I am so happy and overwhelmed reading your articles and your insights on the INFJ personality. I am an infj man; so i can relate to so many things you highlighted on the personality.
    One of my struggles as an Infj man is setting boundaries which i am beginning to get better at. When i realise i have a gift called intuition, i never knew what It was but it took me a long time to embrace & value it. I would say it has been a huge part of my life and it feels like i have super powers. When i talk sometimes, some People get scared or intimidated by my knowledge or scopes on some aspects of life.
    I write to you to tell you how proud i am of your work and really appreciate your insights and wisdom on the INFJ personality. I am certain it would help People with the INFJ personality learn to fall in love with themselves l.e. Self-love and help to handle complex problems.

    Kind regards,
    Solomon Okafor.
