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.
INFJs love working on their personal growth, and it isn’t uncommon for them to explore growth through self-help books. Self-help literature can offer people a new perspective, new information, and even new schedule ideas to help people achieve a better work-life balance.
If you’re an INFJ who’s open to exploring the self-help department, consider these 10 self-help books that are perfect for INFJ personality types.
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.
Enneagram wings are an additional influence on personality, and as such you’ll need to study them to understand how someone with your Enneagram number will function in the real world.

As an INFP, I know that the good and the bad things about our personalities are often just different sides of the same coin. Even the good traits we have can be hard to live with at times, and the parts that may seem negative can be turned into positives when we put our ability to see things differently to good use.
When we are stressed, frightened or hurt, various systems kick into action to keep us safe. Some of these are biological, such as the fight or flight hormone response that prompts us to stay and fight or run away. Others are related to our personalities, such as the tendency to act out when our needs aren’t being met, or to protect our self-esteem from taking any more hits than it can handle.
