  1. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Ok, so hi everyone and welcome. I'm happy you're reading this thread. So the last couple of months I've been really watching a lot of video's of Wenzes and she really inspires me.

Are there also situations where you assert your needs and desires and feel it to be a...
