Six months after having been involved in an intense long distance relationship (with another INFJ no less) the movie Her resonated with me on so many levels it was both scary and invigorating. I felt it to be perhaps one of the closest portrayal of my mind as an INFJ male (or at least a part of it) and I know of one other female INFJ friend who felt much the same. I guess many of us struggle to find friends IRL that truly understand us… so we end up developing online friendships and relationships with those that do (i.e. other INFJs).

Anyway, I won’t spoil the movie by giving you the storyline (I suggest you watch it), but I have compiled 18 quotes from the movie that hit home in some form or other…

1. “Sometimes I think I have felt everything I’m gonna feel. And from here on our I’m not going to feel anything new. Just lesser versions of what I’ve already felt” ~ Theodore

2. “I’m just confused. All I do is hurt and confuse everyone around me” ~ Theodore

3. “And then I realized that I was simply remembering it as something that was wrong with me. That was the story I was telling myself – that I was somehow inferior. Isn’t that interesting? The past is just a story we tell ourselves.” ~ Samantha

4. “There’s something that feels so good about sharing your life with somebody” ~ Theodore

5. “The heart is not like a box that gets filled up; it expands in size the more you love” ~ Samantha

6. “You know what, I can over think everything and find a million ways to doubt myself. I’ve just come to realize that, we’re only here briefly. And while I’m here, I want to allow myself joy.” ~ Amy

7. “I feel like I can be anything with you” ~ Theodore

8. “I don’t know what I want. Ever” ~ Theodore

9 “I trust myself, I trust my feelings” ~ Theodore

10. “I’ve been thinking about how I can tell how much you actually mean to me” ~ Theodore

11. “You helped make me who I am. There will be a piece of me in you always” ~ Theodore

12. “Falling in love is a crazy thing to do it’s kind of like a form of socially acceptable insanity” ~ Amy

13. “It’s like I’m reading a book… and it’s a book I deeply love. But I’m reading it slowly now. So the words are really far apart and the spaces between the words are almost infinite. I can still feel you… and the words of our story… but it’s in this endless space between the words that I’m finding myself now. It’s a place that’s not of the physical world. It’s where everything else is that I didn’t even know existed.” ~ Samantha

14. “I love you so much. But this is where I am now. And this who I am now. And I need you to let me go. As much as I want to, I can’t live your book any more.” ~ Samantha

15. “I’ve never loved anyone the way I loved you.” ~ Theodore

16. “I just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and I’m grateful for that. Whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love.” ~ Theodore

17. “You know, I can feel the fear that you carry around and I wish there was… something I could do to help you let go of it because if you could, I don’t think you’d feel so alone anymore.” ~ Samantha

18. “I’m yours, and I’m not yours.” ~ Samantha
