    Getting In Trouble

    Have you ever gotten in to trouble simply because you couldn't bear the thought of not helping/getting involved even though it was dangerous to do so? Do you find that as an INFJ you have a tendency to rush in to certain situations to help without thinking of the consequences it might have for you? I'd like to hear some examples/stories/thoughts about this.

    Yes. Definitely. But I don't regret it. The thing you're talking about is courage and integrity. Acting out of deep conviction, to help others, to do what is right, is a sign of integrity and a noble thing to do. Doing it despite knowing the negative repercussions, physically or verbally, is the sign of true courage and solid character.

    Your behavior is not a flaw, it's a virtue. The world needs more people that behave this way.

    Such a beautiful, selfless and self-sacrificing virtue. The world would be better place with more people like you.

    No...unless you count my job choices. Working in human service can be a bit risky in terms of on the job work hazards but for the most part I am into prevention more than anything. I think if we spent more time and energy in prevention and making sure work environments are healthy physically as well as emotionally we would have less need for being the "hero". I know...it doesn't make for good stories to share to say yes I did cut up my clients food to the proper size rather than having to Heimlich them afterwards because someone neglected to. Which was a scary thing to have to go through indeed...not the Heimlich part as I was trained and my protective instincts took over but to see a staff member who was not trained and froze. I dislike pain and having to watch someone else suffer. Being a hero to me is a dirty job but somebody's got to do it but why put someone at risk if you don't need to. The person drowning can easily take with them the person who is trying to rescue them. Hmmm I think I would be a good risk assessor with all the bells and whistles that go off in my head all the time

    I'd love to get into trouble with you

    But on a serious note, this is beautiful. The fact that you'd willingly help someone despite the fact that you may pay dearly for it makes me smile.

    I've done similar things myself, like taking tests for people because they were in serious grade trouble and on the verge of flunking out. I'm rather ashamed of it though.

    I have done this.

    There was one female coworker who was shunned by The Clique. The typical ignoring, talking as if she was not there, etc... (these are people in their 30's for God's sake).

    I took it upon myself to talk to her, I included her in events, and even gave her a $20 gift certificate and card for Mother's day in as subtle a manner as I could. Nonetheless, this earned me their ire, including the scorn of the very popular head Hen (cluck cluck cluck).

    I'm currently dealing with the repercussions at work.

    You made my day! *Virtual Hugs* for just being awesome. Chickens just get older not necessarily more mature.

    Yes I have done it, I can take things to the wire at times but rarely go to the point of trouble more extreme tension.

    I am an INFP and I am always getting into trouble over what seems to be nothing. Most of the time I just get cause up in me emotions and just act. When I do this I often come off to other way different that I meant to. I think I have a way different view of this world and relationships than most people.
