I found this article while searching for information on Codependency.


It was interesting to me in the points it makes about J types engaging themselves to others and P types disengaging themselves from others.

Lately, I have been trying to understand codependent behavior.....and found myself really *not* understanding it....I suspect, now, after having read this, that it was because I could not relate to it....my instinct, being and INFP is to leave, not hang around, in extreme relationship stress situations. Indeed, that is what I have done in the past.. I tend to leave.

Anyone else have any insights? I think I was lending too much credit to my F(decision maker) being naturally inclined to help and care...but not when the major principles that structure my life are trod upon.
