What Does the Future You Look Like? Part II: How Type Development Impacts Your Career

In Part I of this series on Type Development: “What Does the Future You Look Like?” I described how the Jung/Myers System for understanding people is a developmental model – that is, we’re all born with a specific type but as we grow, we gain greater access to the parts of our personalities that come less naturally to us. 

Why is it so Hard for INFJs to Find Love?

Idealists to the core, INFJs are the ultimate hopeless romantics. These personalities care deeply about people and generally look to form meaningful connections with others and find kindred spirits in whom they can confide. But if INFJs are so connected and compassionate, why is it so hard for them to find love?

Let’s take a look at some reasons.

How the Enneagram Can Help you Be a Better Coach

The Enneagram personality system is like a multi-functional Swiss army knife, able to help you solve a number of self-development challenges wherever you are at in your journey.

Sometimes work feels harder than it needs to be. It’s easy to overlook little annoyances at first. But over time they pile up, becoming a problem that is much harder to ignore. Sometimes, our irritation makes it hard to remain calm and focused at work. That’s when we need to make a call: either learn to let them go or acknowledge the organization’s culture may not be the right fit for us.

And letting go of our core beliefs about how the world should be can be hard! 

What Does the Future You Look Like? The Clue is in Your Personality Type

Yes, we're all born with one personality type which we have our entire lives. But as we grow older and have new life experiences – especially important ones like births, deaths, schooling, becoming parents and working – we grow and develop different aspects of our personalities. And although no one can know what the future holds, there is a somewhat predictable blueprint for how we may change over time. 

Here’s a glimpse of what the future YOU may be like.

Statistically the rarest of the 16 Myers and Briggs personality types, INFJs are famed for being private and reluctant to open up. At the same time, they’re capable of letting their guard down in the right environment and bringing true joy to the people they care about. They’re also really good at mirroring and adapting to different situations, and that makes it difficult for others to decipher an INFJ’s true motivations.
