I had no idea burn-outs are contagious. But that’s the only explanation I can come up with for the staggering amount of friends I’ve seen suffering from it this year. And while watching them struggle made me feel crushed and powerless, it also gave me lots of opportunities to observe causes, symptoms and antidotes.
Based on these observations, I believe the MBTI-typology can give us more insight into burn-outs, specifically:
- What causes a burn-out in individuals.
- How the burn-out manifests in said individual.
- What simple actions one could take to start feeling better.
