Has anyone else had this?


Jan 24, 2018
When I was a kid, I would often tell my mom “I feel like I want to cry but I don’t know why”. I would just feel sad and I didn’t even know why. Is this a common thing for INFJs? Especially as kids?
Happens to me quite a lot. Not sure if that is related to type. I've also cried because I was angry that I couldn't stop the process of crying no matter what. When it happens, it seems better to just ride it out or find a distraction.

That said, this post triggered some memories of me as a child sobbing in my room, upset and confused why I was crying and why I couldn't stop crying.

I also remember as a child thinking I had two separate facets of my self: A Logical thought stream that would talk endlessly in a monologue (asking rather profound questions about myself, the experience of being alive, ex. why can I see other people's eyes but have to look into a mirror to see mine? and the world around me) and the less tame, wild animal that was the emotions.
