    Which INFJ descriptions do you relate to most?

    Which INFJ descriptions do you relate to most? I've found several that are written online, I'll just highlight the bits and pieces that I feel I can really relate to/describe me or my everyday life best;

    ''INFJs see two people in everyone. They see the public persona, the outer shell, that everyone else sees. But they don’t stop there. Their Se and Fe functions pick up subtle non-verbal cues which are then synthesized and interpreted by their Ni. This provides them with information about an individual’s inner world.. They can readily see beyond appearances and apprehend an individual’s deeper motives and intentions''

    The two people in everyone is true - I recognize as well as face how compassion and cruelty can co-exist in one person, it's just a matter of which one outweight the other.

    ''INFJs are reluctant to trust majority opinion''

    I only trust majority opinion when it's backed by good evidence.

    ''For INFJs, discovering truth involves getting a better handle on the nature of this connectedness and the holographic patterns of the universe. In fact, this happens to be one of the signature strengths of their Ni, which subconsciously processes and synthesizes copious amounts of information, wraps it up in the form of a symbol or metaphor, and proceeds to upload into the INFJ’s consciousness.''

    ''INFJs love spending time engrossed in meaningful conversation. ''

    '' So while INFJs are extremely gifted at helping others solve their problems, they can have greater difficulty when it comes to navigating their own.''

    ''For INFJs, expressing themselves through their Fe is critical to their psychological and physical health and well-being. Even if doing so does not provide them with immediate solutions to the problem at hand, they tend to feel better once they have expressed their feelings, whether through words or tears. This is especially important for the mates or friends of INFJs to recognize.''

    ''When it comes to people and humanitarian issues, INFJs typically feel they have answers, or at least have the capacity to generate one. INFJs feel that in order to solve the myriad humanitarian crises facing the world, we must first gain a better foothold on the fundamentals of human nature and human behavior. We need to better understand ourselves—our motives, behaviors, and personality.''

    It reminds me of what I said in this thread;https://personalitycafe.com/whats-my-...j-i-guess.html I care about social justice, and I think that a way to lessen the stereotypes/ unnecessary labeling in this world also start in private sectors, homes, communities, small things like basic discussions and forums which then can contribute to the bigger picture

    Since writing is largely an intuitive enterprise, INFJs who can readily access their Ni muses can enjoy a great advantage in this particular craft.

    Yep, I like writing a lot.

    I relate with all you said on different levels; however, you said "most" so I'm just going to pick the top two because I like them the most.

    In regards to see two people, that couldn't be any more true. I see them so well, that I try very hard to make sure my two people are on in the same. I always feel like I'm lying to people when I don't show them my "second" person, but INFJs are so good at being two people it's almost creepy. So it's still a work in progress!

    Also, the majority opinion: WHY IS THAT?! What is it about INFJs that acts that way? The moment that everyone starts agreeing on something, I start to lose faith in it and try to look at the other side so I can show people why the other side could also be a valuable choice.

    Maybe it's because we automatically (can't help it) / subconciously wonder,'' Okay why does everyone start agreeing? Are they doing that just to look good? Just to be part of the group?'' and then we use Se and Fe functions to pick up on clues if what they are doing hide some other parts of the truth or not.

    The Personality Junkie description is the best profile of an INFJ I ever read. It helped me determine once and for all that I am indeed an INFJ.

    I can relate to this the most. I believe that well developed understanding of human psychology is essential to problem solving. I also believe that healthy introspection is essential to generating self awareness and personal growth. A lot of problems will solve themselves if we all strive to become more balanced individuals.

    I'm on the PersonalityJunkie bandwagon--that one sold me that I was an INFJ. I had previously thought I was an INTJ, but I think that was at a time that I was: 1) developing out my Ti, and 2) sort of had a bruised Fe, ehhhh.... But really, I couldn't see myself having Te-Fi, but the Fe-Ti description just clicked.

    But to be more specific, actually, the little detailed descriptors at the beginning of the article--being an "old soul", "classicist", "counselor from a young age" (hehehe, I've been a dream analyzer and counselor for a lot of my much, much older family members since I was in elementary school :P ), and even the "being the last to read a bestseller"--HA! That cracked me up.

    I'm a little confused, actually, by the seeing two people thing...I guess I do see two different sides of people, if I decide to pay attention, but usually I just see people's motives, and I question their nuances in speech and writing (which is why I analyze the heck out of friends' tone and such in their tweets or Facebook replies to me...I usually just get a sense of how they're feeling, but I wonder whether I'm over-analyzing and when I should stop because nobody cares :P ).

    I think that's basically what she means. NFs tend to have the ability to see beyond what is said (I believe one major reason is because we are talented at making our true self behind something else that we pick up on it quickly). When someone sees a tweet they may just read the words and take it face-blank. But when you read it, you actually see what the author was trying to say.

    However commonly--I see this a lot with performers, ESFP i think are the letters--people will look at excited and playful and happen, but we can actually see the hurt ans strife behind the eyes.
