Myers Briggs INFJ - Characteristics

  • Myers Briggs INFJ are conscientious and value-driven. They seek meaning in relationships, ideas, and events, with an eye toward better understanding themselves and others. Using their intuitive skills, they develop a clear vision, which they then execute decisively to better the lives of others. Like their INTJ counterparts, they regard problems as opportunities to design and implement creative solutions.
  • They are quiet, private individuals who prefer to exercise their influence behind the scenes. Although very independent, they are intensely interested in the well-being of others.
  • INFJs prefer one-on-one relationships to large groups. Sensitive and complex, they are adept at understanding complicated issues and driven to resolve differences in a cooperative and creative manner.
  • They have a rich, vivid inner life, which they may be reluctant to share with those around them. Nevertheless, they are congenial in their interactions, and perceptive of the emotions of others.
  • Generally well-liked by their peers, they may often be considered close friends and confidants by most other types. However, they are guarded in expressing their own feelings, especially to new people, and so tend to establish close relationships slowly.
  • They tend to be easily hurt, though they may not reveal this except to their closest companions. INFJs may "silently withdraw as a way of setting limits", rather than expressing their wounded feelings, a behaviour that may leave others confused and upset.
  • They tend to be sensitive, quiet leaders with a great depth of personality. They are intricately and deeply woven, mysterious, and highly complex, sometimes puzzling even to themselves. They have an orderly view toward the world, but are internally arranged in a complex way that only they can understand.
  • Abstract in communicating, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. With a natural affinity for art, they tend to be creative and easily inspired; yet they may also do well in the sciences, aided by their intuition.
