We share three of the same letters, yet the one we don’t share makes a world of difference. We’re both introverted, feeling, and judging but my husband has the sensing trait, while I, on the other hand, am more intuitive. There’s also a lot more that goes into how each type is made up (more than 4 little letters), but I do find the difference in one of our letters intriguing.
Being called an “introvert” used to send me into a major existential crisis. I made it my mission in life to prove to everyone around me that I was NOT (I repeat NOT) an introvert. I equated introversion with shyness, brokenness, and being unlikeable. It wasn’t until I discovered the true definition of introversion that I realized that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being an introvert.
Personality tests aren’t just “fun” little tests that you can take if you want to. They’re actually necessary for understanding ourselves and others! Personality tests give us insights into our personalities that we would otherwise be unaware of- simply because it’s hard to see all of our own strengths and weaknesses. We can’t expect others to understand us if we don’t even understand ourselves.
I wholeheartedly believe in the MBTI. I’ve heard the criticism, but I just don’t buy into it. I’ve seen so many people take this test and they’re all incredibly surprised by how accurate the results are.
Because INFJ’s are highly sensitive, future-oriented, empathetic, and stimulated easily, breakups can be a bit of a train wreck for them! That’s why I decided to write up a post on exactly what the INFJ can do to start healing their broken heart.
INFJ’s are the rarest and most complicated of the 16 types. Making up less than 2% of the population, it’s no wonder we often feel misunderstood. We’re sweet and sensitive, yet cold and tough. We’re feelers but we also place a lot of importance on things “making sense.” We want adventure, but it usually has to be planned or the overwhelm will kick in.
As mentioned in my last post, 3 Reasons Entrepreneurship is a Great Option for INFJ’s, I’m fulfilling my promise to you to share some fantastic ways that creative introverts can earn an income! As a creative introvert, the words, “work from home,” sound like music to me ears!
If you’re an INFJ, you’ve most likely found it extremely confusing to choose one career path. It can feel limiting when there are so many different things you’re passionate about and so many different ways that you want to help people!
Setting boundaries has always been my WORST NIGHTMARE. I’ve spent the majority of my life doing everything I can to avoid hurting and disappointing people… BUT recently I’ve been trying to make a real effort to set boundaries assertively and to be myself unapologetically.
I’ve been wanting to write this article for awhile but have been avoiding it simply because it’s such a heavy topic and I don’t want to mess it up. I don’t take my articles about being an INFJ lightly because (and this may sound silly to people who aren’t Myers Briggs obsessed) finding out I was an INFJ was life-changing for me!
