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.
Introversion is not one thing but a spectrum that includes varying levels of introversion. Some people are ambiverts who sit close to the middle of the spectrum and can flex happily between introversion and extraversion as the situation demands. But some are definitely, even extremely, introverted. You may be on the far side of introversion, having very limited energy and desire for being around people.
The ENTJ and INTP personality types are often described as a great love match. They have a wide range of personality traits in common and that makes them really fascinating people to know, talk to and work with. When you put these two types together, something really interesting happens. They bring out the best in each other’s intellectual, logical and adventurous personalities, creating a dynamic and challenging combination where sparks fly.

First, remember that we’re not animals, or children, so please don’t try to manage us, humor us, or endeavor to bend us to your will.
What you can do is learn about what makes us tick and become a partner who helps us manage our weaknesses and utilize our strengths. We have a great deal to offer, if you give us the chance to do it in our way.
Enneagram 8s are a lot of things - but subtle isn’t one of them! These types find it impossible to hide their feelings, especially if they’re unhappy, angry or frustrated by something happening around them. If they run into someone they don’t like, there’s likely to be a slip of the tongue, a roll of the eyes or even a choice word or two that reveals exactly what they’re feeling. An Enneagram 8 rarely pretends.
When it comes to people they don’t like, Enneagram 8s will usually choose one of four responses:
Everyone experiences anger sometimes, but how you deal with it reveals a lot about your personality type. For example, some types feel little wrath and more emotional regret, while others feel unprecedented fury! Because every personality type handles anger differently, it can be helpful to examine how each type behaves when dealing with this complicated emotion.
So how do you behave when you’re angry? Let’s take a look at how each personality type reacts.
Highly sensitive people (HSPs) have an accommodating temperament combined with a quiet confidence that makes them ideal for most leadership positions. They are sensitive to the needs of others and transparent in their concern for everyone’s welfare. This helps them elicit support and cooperation from people of diverse backgrounds and personalities, who come to trust them implicitly.
