Ok, so I had an INFJ "A ha!" moment during my history course this morning when my professor was talking about World War II and FDR, then he vaguely brought up Eleanor Roosevelt's influence as First Lady (a fellow INFJ). The comment he made to trigger my idea was "Eleanor changed the role in of the First Lady by becoming involved in politics and working to change things. Really, only Eleanor and Hilary Clinton were the only two first ladies to do this to date. Other first ladies have still done good things, like Laura Bush was focused on improving reading in schools and Michelle Obama has been trying to promote healthier diets for kids, but who's going to argue or have a problem with that? The difference with Eleanor is that she strived to do things, but it were things that people could come in and say they disagreed with her idea."
So this got me thinking...
Two famous INFPs that I've read quite a bit about would be Audrey Hepburn and Princess Diana, both of which were involved in helping the sick and poverty areas of the world. Their "vision" was to help others in way that nobody can really argue that what they are doing is a bad thing.
On the flip side, Eleanor focused on the Human Rights movement... which was her way of helping the people. The area that she focused on seemed to, perhaps, take more courage because doing so made her subject to criticism by the people of the US.
This is not to say that Princess Diana or Audrey Hepburn didn't take risks or have controversy (Diana's life was all that by being involved in the Royal family and her issues with Prince Charles). Diana reached out to the people that no other anarchy did up until that time. After all, this is why they called her the "people's princess". Regardless there are still people that did not like Diana because she was apparently "dumb", "emotionally unstable" or whatever other thing people have said.
I'm just saying that their visions were something that (most) people can't look at that and say "wow, that's not going to help anybody..." - nobody can really argue that helping the poor is bad.
So hopefully that makes sense..
So what are your visions and goals? If you could do ANYTHING to influence or change anything in this world what would it be? Is it a more controversial topic or more of a "safe" topic??
