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.

This is way too accurate for me. I always want to please others. When I was a manager I always treated my direct reports as equals and had such high expectations apparently but it was because I thought everyone can be like me. Now I understand that I am unique in my way of thinking, feelings and empathy. I love being and Advocate but it has its challenges of always second guessing yourself and reading an email 100 times before sending to make sure you carefully and tactfully express yourself without offending anyone. UGH!

I have done much research after discovering my results on this test and finally feel understood. Everything I had considered to be "wrong" about me was never wrong; it is just who I am. When I was younger, I remember always insisting to my mother that I just knew people and their motives. Also, I always wanted to know the "why" behind everything. Discussions on intense topics such as life or death always intrigued me since I was young. There are times when I will just give to others, not for the personal gain, just simply because it makes me happy. Perhaps this test offers yet another "label", but I also found reassurance and comfort in these written words. I hope others can connect the dots in their life as well.

Some things I'd be interested in being added/discussed/researched (if it's even normal for this personality, that is, or maybe i'm just a total nutcase) is how obsessive behaviours play a role. I believe it was touched on a little but it’s huge in my life. Just curious if that’s just a weird quirk of mine or if it’s seen a lot with this personality. I also always personally expect too much of others. It started out subtle and I never thought anything of it, but not being my own boss (and having 3 jobs to deal with it to boot) is becoming increasing challenging for me. I plan to eventually own a business myself some day but I don’t see that being anytime soon so I have been working on this. I always want things to be more organized/done my way (it just seems the best to me and I’m actually pretty open minded usually!)/think people are plain dumb if they aren’t on the same page as me but I know that the cause is truly just me expecting way too much from them to begin with. They can’t read my mind or sometimes aren’t even capable of being on the same page as me with certain things. I feel like it makes a huge impact on my life and it’s actually something I was going to start working on so I stop pushing those I work with in life away. I can’t wait to see how my moods and such change once I’m able to run my own business, I truly feel this will be extremely beneficial to me, especially after reading all of this. I’m also my own worst enemy and I’m terribly hard on myself. Anyone else?? I have next to zero self-confidence but maybe it’s just related to how I grew up or something, not so much my personality. My boyfriend and all of my friends that have taken this came up as ENFP (Campaigner) which just totally through me off. I’d be interested in seeing which personalities mesh well with each other and such, because apparently I’m drawn to a certain type! Thanks for creating this! I’m fascinated and haven’t stopped trying to connect dots since I got my answer!
