I’ve really been reading into this INFJ personality trait thing.
It’s really useful, sometimes I can’t understand myself at all, and so getting to see it on paper and being able to totally relate just helps.
It’s also great to know it’s not just me that’s like this. I’ve looked up some personality traits, here’s a few. Some I can’t relate to, others I can a lot more. I’ll post the good, and the bad.
Is a natural idealist, visionary, cause/people oriented person
Is normally quite symbolic about most things
Is NOT very good at remembering facts, data, has poor memory for detail
Is FUTURE oriented, struggles with in-the-moment detailed reality
Is very general, conceptual with great “idea” sense
Is usually very trusting about things, if they can understand the concept behind the idea….they are for it!!
Is usually quite empathic and feeling in approach to EVERYTHING
Is typically decisive when implementing a vision
Probably possesses one of the most powerful abilities to see potential/possibility
Is normally easily distracted
At times is very philosophical and even mystical in the way their minds work
In relationships, are deeply concerned with harmony and fellowship
In relationships, no such thing as constructive criticism
In relationships, they will see the “hidden” beauty in people
In relationships, can be very sensitive to the feelings or others, are sympathetic and considerate
In relationships, can be exquisitely understanding of others feelings, at times this ability seems almost “psychic”
In relationships, are very private people, and don’t “open up” with many
Are good work team/team members, though difficult to “know” at times.
May become even less Introverted and more Extraverted, and verbally “attack”
May forget to eat or sleep, etc.May become very self-critical, moralistic and perfectionist
May become compulsive at making the outside world fit their inside view of things
May become angry, loud, and verbal focusing on non-relevant details
Been looking into my Myers-Briggs type, I’m an INFJ. Here’s a sample from a website that explains INFJ’s personality traits.
“INFJs are deeply concerned about their relations with individuals as well as the state of humanity at large. They are, in fact, sometimes mistaken for extroverts because they appear so outgoing and are so genuinely interested in people — a product of the Feeling function they most readily show to the world. On the contrary, INFJs are true introverts, who can only be emotionally intimate and fulfilled with a chosen few from among their long-term friends, family, or obvious “soul mates.” “
I also found out that INFJ is the rarest of all personality traits, with only a 1.5% chance of someone having it
