Some personality types are hard to tell apart due to their similar preferences. One of the most common mix-ups happens with the INFP and the INFJ, and it isn’t unusual to find yourself unsure of which type you are since the likes and dislikes of these types overlap in so many ways. However, you don’t want to let these similarities fool you because they’re quite different once you break down each type’s traits.
What makes famous entrepreneurs successful in terms of personality type? Are Introverts or Extraverts more likely to be famous entrepreneurs? Is innovation or tradition more of an asset? Is creativity or leadership more essential? As you’ll see from this small selection, it can be all or any of these traits.
Any personality type could be included in a list of famous entrepreneurs. While Extaverts may be more charismatic, or more visible in the public eye, they don’t necessarily have the advantage over Introverts.
Since INFPs are one of the rarer personality types, I have not often gotten to know “one of my own kind.” At least, I don’t think I have.
But I do know what it’s like to live as an INFP. Based on this ‘insider knowledge’, I think I can make some reasonable conjectures about what might happen when an INFP meets another INFP — and it runs the entire gamut of experiences from total bust to mighty boom!
Here’s what happens when two of these imaginative idealists collide.
Intuitive-feelers personality types — those with NF as their middle letters on the Myers and Briggs 16 type test — share many defining characteristics. But divergent life experiences create plenty of variety within the type.
The differences may be observed at the individual level. But they may also be seen through the lens of gender. Intuitive-Feeling men may think, act, and react differently than Intuitive-Feeling women. Not in every instance, but at least in some.
Over the past year, we’ve all had our unique experiences of adapting to life in a time of pandemic. With lockdowns and work from home mandates, many of us were forced to endure months of near-solitude, and saw our daily routines disrupted. While some saw these restrictions as an opportunity for slowing down, others struggled with the lack of social interaction imposed.
