INFJ Personality – Conclusion

Few personality types are as passionate 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 INFJs can be easily tripped up in areas where their 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 inner core, you may face numerous challenges that at times can even make you question who you really are.

Advocate (INFJ) personality

What you have read so far is just an introduction and less than 5% of what we can tell you about the INFJ personality type. You may have muttered to yourself, “wow, this is so accurate it’s creepy”, or “they know more about me than people I’m closest to”. And you may even be a little uncomfortable because you are really not used to being understood.

This is not a trick. You felt understood because you were. And no, we did not spy on you – rather, we spent years studying INFJs’ life stories, experiences, and responses to hundreds of our surveys. Step by step, insight by insight, we discovered exactly how INFJs think, and what they need to reach their full potential.

This is how we know that many of the challenges you’ve faced and will face in the future have been overcome by other INFJs. You are not alone in this. You simply need to learn from mistakes and successes of others.

But in order to do that, you need a roadmap that fits your needs. Life is too short to stumble around grasping at scattered and contradictory advice that may work for 95% of the population, but not you. We now need to go much deeper into the INFJ mind and answer “why?”, “how?” and “what if?”

Are you ready to learn why INFJs act in the way they do? What motivates and inspires you? What you are afraid of and what you secretly dream about? How you can unlock your true, exceptional potential, while also staying true to who you are?

Our Academy provides a roadmap towards a more focused, confident, and successful you. It’s not for everyone – you need to be willing to challenge yourself, to face your fears, and to ask and answer questions you haven’t asked yourself before. This is not a quick-fix solution, nor an easy shortcut. Our goal is to help you grow and become the person you are meant to be, not to simply give you a comfortable mask to put on.

Are you ready to begin your journey? Then continue to the next section. We’ll be waiting for you in the Academy.

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 :)

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 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!
