INFJs are more likely to use a lot of facial expressions when they talk and be more affectionate
really? i always thought it was the other way around. because INFJs have such a heightened sense of other people's body language and thoughts, they tend to turn it around so that others don't know what they're thinking.
it takes years to get an appreciation of how the functions work, and how to separate them away from the rest of what forms a human being.
INFPs lead with their feeling function, and are sparsely in contact with their logical side- they don't do cold reasoning very well, everything usually involves emotions, values and personal feelings on the matter at hand. they do everything based on their personal value system (even if it plays devil's advocate sometimes). Ne means that possibilities play an important part in an INFP's life, and they might feel they are somewhat scattered sometimes with all the directions they're being pulled in- although much less so than as an ENFP of course.
an INFJ leads with acute intuition- they're more focused in their intuition than their feelings, although their feelings and values are obviously important. INFJs embody more "altruistic" values than an INFP (although an INFP's strong personal conscience often leads to them trying extra hard to be altruistic too), however INFJs are a bit more grounded in reasoning than INFPs, with a Ti tertiary being used fairly occasionally.
ask yourself which of these would make you more stressed and depressed- completely ignoring and blanking your intuition or your emotions? your primary function should be your favourite, and if it isn't there's something going wrong.
INFPs use introverted feeling which is all about keeping your emotions concealed and internalised so although feeling is their dominant function they prefer not to reveal that side to them and can react coldly to the expressions of emotions others make.
INFJs have extroverted feeling as their auxiliary which is still quite regularly used, and this is about body language, exaggeration, facial expressions and being aware of the feelings of those around them. This is why they are good at reading people, their introverted intuition is also very interesting because it gives INFJs and INTJs a sense of what the correct answer is and gives the interesting realisations without them being able to fully explain how they understand something to others.
Cognitive functions are really confusing because when focusing on the functions, you miss the personality!
You're an INFP.I want to see the world through an INFJs eyes. I don't know why, but it bothers me.
