There are some days when I don’t feel like talking or interact with anyone except family and ka Emil. Then I think how to make myself feel better. It turns out that archiving chats can do that. I feel less overwhelming. No, I never have hundred or thousand chat notification haha. However, as an introvert, sometimes looking at too many chats (even the read ones) overwhelms me. Having too many chats on a chat list is like being in a crowded room even though I’m talking to no one.
Based on this psychology junkie article (https://www.psychologyjunkie.com/2016/08/09/12-stress-busting-techniques-intjs/) “Too much noise or sensory input” is one of the things that cause stress to INTJ. I consider the crowded room metaphor too much noise. LOL.
I know this sounds weird. Nonetheless, it works for me haha.
This is what’s left on my WhatsApp after I archived other messages. I did this to my Line, too, which most of its chats are from official/promo account LOL.
