    INFJ and a 3?

    How does this personality combination look? I read on this link that INFJs might be hesitant to embrace being a 3 because of a perceived amorality that 3s have. Anybody know any real-life INFJ 3s?

    There are INFJ 3's on this sub-forum...

    Who said 3's are amoral?

    I think what was meant by amorality is the sense that some 3s are so driven to succeed in their lives that they're willing to "cut corners", ethically speaking. Examples would include cheating on a test or fudging some answers on a personality inventory.

    My 3w2 buddy did this to try to make me mistake him for a 2w3. I've had enough experiences with him and seen him in competition enough to know that he's definitely not a 2 but a 3, and told him that after the testing.

    That accurately describes the behavior of unhealthy 3's. Using Enneagram Institute's nine health levels (3 for healthy, 3 for average, and 3 for unhealthy), an average or healthy 3 would not be characterized by that kind of behavior.

    I am an INFJ 3w2 :). I'm driven to succeed but would never be willing to cheat, step on others ect. In my opinion cheating or manipulation wouldn't actually be success. In fact I feel more accomplished when something is very challenging and the odds are stacked against me.

    I have a close to photographic memory this means that I've never gotten less than like a 98 on an exam. While this does wonders for my 3 the INFJ part of me honestly feels guilty about this. I feel almost like I "cheated" because I have an intellectual advantage over others who take the test, don't get me wrong I study hard but I'm sure it's much less than people who do much worse than me.

    Much of my need for success is driven by my desire to help others. I feel like I won't be able to help another person to the bet of my ability if I am not successful and do not have the means or time to do so.

    I think for me, it's a sense of self-confidence, in that there is almost nothing I can't do if I put my mind to it. To give up is be considered a failure. Lately, the prospect of failure prevents me from pursuing a lot of hobbies I'm interested in.

    I deceive myself and others not from being immoral, but from being so ambitious that sometimes I think that just by thinking and believing I can do something, it means I can do it and it is so much that it starts becoming fake, especially if it's something I've just lead myself to believe I want to do. That's why I have to be really careful to not let others pressure me. I might say yes to them and delude myself and them when it's not really something I want to do. It's more from that then from really being dishonest with others. I deceive myself.

    I think this is a problem with all NF's, but especially in type 3s. Us NF's have the problem of getting lost in our heads, add the wonderful ability to see or feel every which we could fail and you're sure to stop in your tracks. But it's once we move past those and move forward with a devil-may-care attitude we're truly a force to be reckoned with.

    Yes, it's one of my most valued personality traits, foresight, but gone awry, it's paralyzing. I just spent close to an hour deciding on purchasing a Wii. Thankfully, I did eventually.
