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 surprisingly accurate, but I'm not sure if I'm happy with it. What does an INFJ do when it has lost it's motivation and it's goal. What does an INFJ do when it's opinions about what is right to them is impossible to achieve. I feel so lost and alone, I just wish I had more INFJs around me to connect with and discuss ideas and ideal with, to share a piece of mind. Does anyone else have these problems?

Yes, I have the same problem at times :( It's definitely hard when you lose motivation. For example, my emotions can take over me and overwhelm me at times. Therefore, I need give myself time to reflect, learn from the experience, pick myself up and know that I have to keep on going.

Yes, l agree, specially when my friends and l have disagreement in something. Then l'll need time alone to digest and reflect upon what l did

Uhn... this is so true. The people who put this together did a great job. In the past I was confused, sometimes shocked when people act a certain way. These days, I have learnt to tolerate people and just take them for who they are.

This test is crazy. I just took it for fun but it was creepily accurate. I wish I knew more INFJ people though.

This is well-researched. It explains my personality perfectly, and I thought that no one could understand me! I've had my family and a few friends read this so that they can understand me better; this is a great service that those at 16Personalities have provided. I'm an INFJ-T. Thanks 16Personalities :D

I was comforted learning I'm not alone. I am however concerned that there are more like me out there. thankfully it's only 1% of the population. So accurate, thx!!
