INFJ Personality – Conclusion

Few personality types are as sensitive and mysterious as INFJs. Your imagination and empathy make you someone who not only cherishes their integrity and deeply held principles but, unlike many other idealistic types, is also capable of turning those ideals into plans, and executing them.

Yet, as an INFJ, you are likely to be easily tripped up in areas where idealism and determination are more of a liability than an asset. Whether it is navigating interpersonal conflicts, confronting unpleasant facts, pursuing self-realization, or finding a career path that aligns well with your intricate inner core, you may face numerous challenges that at times can even make you question who you really are.

INFJ personality

The sections you have read so far are just the introduction to each chapter in our discussion about the complex enigma that is the INFJ personality type. You may have muttered to yourself, "wow, this is so accurate it’s a little creepy" or "finally, someone understands me!" You may have even asked "how do they know more about me than the people I’m closest to?"

This was not a trick. You felt understood because you were. We’ve studied how INFJs think, what motivates and troubles them, and what they need to reach their full potential. Many of the challenges you’ve faced and will face in the future have been overcome by other INFJs. We are all unique, but we can also learn from each other’s experiences – and use that knowledge to better understand ourselves. Our comment sections are a great venue for that, giving you a unique chance to be a part of this ongoing effort.

We explained how INFJs tend to behave in certain circumstances, such as in parenthood and the workplace… Now we’d like to go much deeper into your personality type, answering questions about why certain qualities express themselves more strongly, how to manage personal and professional relationships with challenging personality conflicts, and what happens if stress causes your shadow side to emerge. Discovering the answers to these questions can truly make a difference, not just in the way you view yourself, but in viewing the challenges you and others with the INFJ personality type face more constructively.

So, are you interested in finding out what really motivates and inspires you? How to grow as an individual, with a clear purpose in your sights? How to use your INFJ strengths and carve out a niche in a world that sometimes seems to have been built by and for completely different personality types – while also staying true to who and what you really are?

Our Academy provides a roadmap towards a more focused, confident, and passionate YOU. It is not for everyone – you need to be willing and able to challenge yourself, to go beyond the obvious, to imagine and follow your own path instead of just going with the flow. This is not a quick-fix solution. Our goal is to help you become the person you were meant to be, not simply give you a mask to put on. If you wish to learn more, simply go to the next section.

So this might be the most accurate thing I've ever read. One thing I could use some help on: I've developed severe anxiety issues over the last couple months, and I'm not sure how to approach my parents or anyone else about it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I feel you. For me it is the same since 3 months now. A HUGE help for me was to express my feelings through music (I play guitar). Which led to an even greater help: I decided to open up to the very few people closest to me (after my music made them feel something is wrong: Mission accomplished) and think about my priorities and who i really am. Now after I sorted out this stuff I just got trouble with how to act upon them. For instance I have fallen in love but fear telling it to her as it may backfire and break everything that is important to me :/ So I would suggest you to show the ones closest to you that something bothers you and then open up to the ones which you feel might care. Trust your intuition and they will listen and try helping you ;) And use the momentum of a positive moment to empower yourself to open up. If you will not open up, all the feelings can mentally destroy you and make everything worse. As INFJs tend to be very subtle about their feelings they HAVE to be more direct about it or else nobody will notice... I hope I could help you. Writing this quite intimate post just helped me to open up more and gave me strength for the future: So it works :)

It is almost creepy that the results are so accurate. I have always found it challenging to make close friends. Never a part of large groups, just 1 or 2 precious people.

A couple months ago, I went to a summer camp where all we did was share with each other and discuss civil rights issues. In just a week's time, all 90 of us at the camp formed this bond; we'd essentially become a family because of the experiences we shared. Everyone but me. Reading this made me realize why I hadn't felt close to anyone there -- easily forming connections like the others simply because I saw them every single day for a week didn't feel right. I felt out of place because by the end of the week, everyone had shared a thought during the discussions we had with all 90 of us -- everyone but me. All week I thought about what could be wrong with me. I knew I should have shared a thought (everyone else had), but something in me just made it so hard to do. In smaller discussions, where it was mandatory for everyone to speak, I did share my thoughts. By the end of the week the people in that group thought of me as an "old soul," "wise," and to "speak beautifully." I suppose I don't like having attention on me so I didn't share, but when I did, I advocated the best I could for what I believed in. Maybe this isn't due to my INFJ personality type -- maybe it runs deeper than it, but reading this description made me feel better about myself. Less different, less out of place, and less like something is wrong with me.

I took this test a few weeks ago and reading over the results again has never felt so real. I'm heading into a new phase in my life where I'm faced with career decisions and I'm finding it harder than ever to narrow down on what I really want to do for the rest of my life that would make me happy. My results as an Advocate have been such an eye-opener! I feel like I'm reading my innate thoughts out loud! Those I haven't been able to come to terms with yet. I'd definitely recommend this to all those in this same phase searching for an answer. Most importantly, don't forget to pray!
