Just as a break from all the deep soul-searching stuff going around here - I've often read that INFJs tend to be concerned (well, at least more concerned than their INFP counterparts) about their physical appearance.
For example, they are more likely to go the gym, eat right etc. for the sake of keeping a pleasant physical appearance rather than for the purpose of being healthy.
1. Are you concerned about your physical appearance?
2. What is your attitude towards your (perceived) physical attractiveness?
I confess that, despite me preferring to see myself as deep/ at least not superficial, I do have a small vanity streak. I like to keep myself in shape, going to the gym about 2/3 times a week - not a gym junkie, not obsessed over dieting (I am an incurable chocoholic after all), but not totally lax either. And I wear make-up. Not too much - if we're heading out for the night, I'll be the first girl out of the bathroom after 10 mins tops and waiting with the rest of the guys - but I'm goaded that I feel like I need to wear any at all.
For me, I think the word 'annoyance' sums up my attitude towards physical attractiveness. I feel like it's a superficial barrier put up between people that's unavoidable but distracting, hindering people from getting to know what's on the inside. As a girl, I have to admit that being even slightly physically attractive makes things easier socially, in that people are more likely to accept you in a new social circle, but, as an INFJ, I feel like it can be incredibly isolating. Hard to put my finger on exactly why but perhaps it's a combination of people making assumptions based on the way you look, being quite reserved/ not like an open book, having incredibly divergent (and geeky haha) interests to the mainstream, and wondering (in terms of dating etc.) if guys are interested in me because of the way I look or the stuff I have to say/think about (which I prize much much more).
Anyway, hope that makes sense and that I don't come across as conceited because I know that there are far worse and pitiable things in life than fussing over your looks (or lack thereof ... ), but this is a light-hearted topic so I'm interested to hear what you fellow INFJs think
