Perseverant when it comes to their ideas and goals, INFJs are exceptionally decisive when it’s something they care about. As Judgers, they enjoy having things settled and are particularly happy when their decisions can change someone’s life for the better.
Truity is pleased to share this guest post from Rob Toomey, President of TypeCoach.
When you think about your very best interactions with others, there is a good chance one of two things was going on:
1. You were talking to someone with a similar personality type – you didn’t have to make any big adjustments because the other person naturally understood what you were saying;
In a time of pandemic and global uncertainty, how one deals with stress is as relevant a topic as ever. And as we know, your unique Myers-Briggs personality type can play a critical role in how you manage and process stress and anxiety.
ENFP personality types love a fresh start. They’re excited, enthusiastic, and always looking ahead to see what the future might bring. Whether it’s a brand new year, a new month, or even a new day, they like to follow paths they’ve never taken, engage in creative projects, and say yes to every opportunity that comes their way.
It’s no secret that Introverts like their privacy but, for many introverted folks, opening up doesn’t come naturally – not even to those we trust and love. As a chatty INFJ who’s often mistaken for an Extravert, I, too, have wondered why it is so hard for me to share how I feel with those closest to me.
When you think of powerful types within the Enneagram, it is tempting to focus on Type 8, the Leader or Type 3, the Achiever. These outwardly focused, action-oriented individuals easily garner the attention and often admiration of others. They are strong, high-achieving personalities that get things done. But did you know that the true powerbroker in the Enneagram is really Type 9, the Peacemaker?
As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. famously said, “Everyone can be great, because everybody can serve.” There is no single “right” way to give back. Helping other people comes in all shapes and sizes.
Recently, I asked one of my best friends to send me her music recommendations. What I got back was a playlist so varied, so cool and so completely different from my music that I couldn’t believe what I was listening to.
This friend is one of the people I feel closest to in my life but she also couldn’t be more different from me. We are total opposites. And that’s why our friendship works.
