Instrumentality opens you up unconditionally to everyone else. It's the truest form of interaction you'll ever get. It's oneness with the entirety of humanity.
All your secrets, your hopes, your fears.
Everyone would know and you'd know theirs.
Would you be emotionally hurt? At first yes, this is what Shinji experiences and why he rejects Instrumentality
Shinji is faced with his biggest issue: Connecting with other people
Instead of growing and accepting the connections that he would truly know and understand, he rejects it.
He rejects the truest form of honest interaction and retreats back to the "normal world" where he's able to run away.
Full openness isn't honest interaction, it's oneness.
There is no individuality or communication between parts of a whole, they all just blend together into a meaningless slush.
Barriers, lies, differences and the unknown are what make us ourselves and what make our interactions worth having.
In short, Shinji was right.
