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.
