    Hi… I’ve listened to the podcast and I love it, but I have a couple of questions.

    I’m INFJ and it seems like you skipped over us in your examples. Can you give some examples on how I recharge using my introverted intuition?

    Also, would spending time on fb support groups, offering healing and running spiritual groups be a good used of my copilot? Am I right in thinking if I am not so great at self care that would also be included?

    Loved the podcast, just trying to work out, with my still limited understanding, how to apply it to my life.

    Keep up the awesome work

    Hi CrystalOak! Thanks for your comment. The best way for an Ni user to recharge is through meditation and quiet times of contemplation. Journaling is good. Quiet walks in nature. Make sure you are getting uninterrupted alone time to allow your mind to drift.

    In my experience, you can’t exercise your Harmony copilot virtually. You need to be able to interact with people’s energies and see and feel the benefits you are bringing to them. Virtual Harmony is pretty thankless and there is going to be more of a drain on your energies as you give and give and give and rarely receive the kind of positive feedback that is so necessary to INFJs.

    We need to know we are helping people. Someone typing out “Thanks!” in a Facebook group and sending a happy face emoticon doesn’t feed our need to feel the difference we are making. I stay away from most Facebook groups because I find they are extremely disruptive to my mental and emotional state.

    But that’s just my experience. How do you feel after spending a lot of time on FB? Do you feel intense love for the people you meet there? Or do you feel negative and drained? Ultimately, the path you choose for growth is up to you.

      Thanks for your reply, I appreciate that.

      I do love to allow my mind to wander and one of the best weekend days is for me to have the house to myself (my cats don’t count) and just “potter”, do the housework as I feel like doing it, take time to stand in the garden and look at my flowers, and just be. So that’s great that I am doing that.

      I can also see what you are saying about online support groups. I used to offer face to face healing and ran a meditation group but my day job was draining me so much I didn’t have the energy to give to people in that environment. I gave up promoting my healing and cancelled my meditation group, and I must admit, I do feel pretty lost now. So I need to find a way to do that more. I’m guessing more of the “pottering” is needed somehow to recharge me enough to do the healing work.

      In online groups where relationships are formed I do find I get enough feedback, and I enjoy blogging too, but I kind of kid myself that someone is reading it. Some groups really fire me up, some wear me out. I tend to leave the latter pretty fast.

      Thank you for your insight, this has given me something to think about.
      Have a great day!

    This was super helpful! I’ve been hesitant to really get into my copilot because it does seem so daunting as an introvert. Sometimes I think my driver Authenticity doesn’t get enough love, so I feel like I don’t have the energy to get into my Exploration. Journaling and creative expression sounds like a great thing that I’ve kind of fallen out of lately. I love the idea of practicing the extroverted function in your daily activities. I’m going to have to be extroverted at some point during the day, it might as well be Exploration. Very interesting. I’ll have to do that!
