The INFJ Personality Type

INFJs are creative nurturers with a strong sense of personal integrity and a drive to help others realize their potential. Creative and dedicated, they have a talent for helping others with original solutions to their personal challenges.

The Counselor has a unique ability to intuit others' emotions and motivations, and will often know how someone else is feeling before that person knows it himself. They trust their insights about others and have strong faith in their ability to read people. Although they are sensitive, they are also reserved; the INFJ is a private sort, and is selective about sharing intimate thoughts and feelings.

What does INFJ stand for?

INFJ is one of the sixteen personality types created by Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers. INFJ is an acronym for the personality traits of Introversion, iNtuition, Feeling, and Judging. The INFJ type is also called the "Counselor" and is described as idealistic, compassionate, and sensitive.

Each of the four letters of the INFJ code signifies a key personality trait of this type. INFJs are energized by time alone (Introverted), focus on ideas and concepts rather than facts and details (iNtuitive), make decisions based on feelings and values (Feeling) and prefer to be planned and organized rather than spontaneous and flexible (Judging).

INFJ Values and Motivations

INFJs are guided by a deeply considered set of personal values. They are intensely idealistic, and can clearly imagine a happier and more perfect future. They can become discouraged by the harsh realities of the present, but they are typically motivated and persistent in taking positive action nonetheless. The INFJ feels an intrinsic drive to do what they can to make the world a better place.

INFJs want a meaningful life and deep connections with other people. They do not tend to share themselves freely but appreciate emotional intimacy with a select, committed few. Although their rich inner life can sometimes make them seem mysterious or private to others, they profoundly value authentic connections with people they trust.

How Others See the INFJ

INFJs often appear quiet, caring and sensitive, and may be found listening attentively to someone else’s ideas or concerns. They are highly perceptive about people and want to help others achieve understanding. INFJs are not afraid of complex personal problems; in fact, they are quite complex themselves, and have a rich inner life that few are privy to. They reflect at length on issues of ethics, and feel things deeply. Because Counselors initially appear so gentle and reserved, they may surprise others with their intensity when one of their values is threatened or called into question. Their calm exterior belies the complexity of their inner worlds.

Because INFJs are such complex people, they may be reluctant to engage with others who might not understand or appreciate them, and can thus be hard to get to know. Although they want to get along with others and support them in their goals, they are fiercely loyal to their own system of values and will not follow others down a path that does not feel authentic to them. When they sense that their values are not being respected, or when their intuition tells them that someone’s intentions are not pure, they are likely to withdraw.

Hello fellow INFJs!!

Just wanted to say I agree with a lot of the things mentioned on this page. What careers have you thought of pursuing/ are pursuing now? Did you enjoy it? Also, any careers you have tried and hated?

For me, I'm thinking of going into research but don't fancy a pure research career. Any thoughts?

Aida (not verified) says...

Hello to all INFJ's!!!

I really want to talk with you and discuss about our personality. How about creating WhatsApp group? 

Reach me out in Instagram: @aideloona

Ashina (not verified) says...

I don't have an Instagram but it would be amazing to communicate with other INFJs in a WhatsApp group

Somnath Singh (not verified) says...

I always wondered that why am I so different than people around me, our personality is the first layer of ourselves the interact with the outer world.
it is the cause of all harmony and conflict around you, neverthless it is not the core of who you are, if  you are willing you can craft your personality consciously also,
I am one of those few who comes under INFJ, and in many ways I am comfortable with most of my traits.
They are so unique, so I will keep them the way for they are now.
Remember that the persona should be the way the present situation demands, then only you can enjoy the surface of your life otherwise rigidity in your persona will only make you suffer and also people around you too.Well those who want to reach out can DM me on insta : Siddhartha4u. Would love to see other INFJ's
 

Blessing (not verified) says...

Thank you so very much!

This is a great piece am infj but I think also the environment and upbringing has changed how I respond,how I think and nature of my relating to people,I usually not feel like a loner I also worked on myself to the extend that I don't feel isolated.

I always give my contribution as welcomed and one principled that I have acquired in life is being assertive,firm yet warm,emathetic etc.

To be an infj you need to tell people or help them to understand you especially where you feel misunderstood.

My thinking though.

Thank you

BFM (not verified) says...

Hello everyone, feeling much of the same as everyone (obvi). I have always wondered if I would meet anyone similar and didnt realise until now that statisitcally Im at a disadvantage. If anyone would like to chat over zoom I would be interested to meet my fellow advocates, perhaps see if we ask ourselves the same questions? Could be nice, let me know!

Isn't it beautiful how we are all expressing ourselves in here? We REALLY are not alone in this world.

We cannot solve all the problems of the world or our own, but we can try to change for the better, having deep connections is niiiiice.

How about we start a therapy group? LOL :)

LOOL sounds like your 5min of extroversion is taking over your introverted ways XD, I'm here for it though loool

confuzzled INFJ(?) (not verified) says...

Hello, random INFJ here.

i was wondering if any of you face the same difficulties in understanding who you are as I am. I am INFJ, but the last two characteristics are almost equally balanced. I share traits of INFP, INFJ, and INTJ, but most times I don't know which instinct to listen to. Notice that all of these personality types are introverts as well as intuitive, so basically, my intuition tells me to do three different things at once. My intuition is always right, but only if I choose the right side of me to listen to! 
what's also confusing to me is my path for the future. I have no idea what I will do or become, and the personality careers for my personality are so drastically different! I combine logical thinking with my imaginative world, my fear and love for people, my hate, fear, want, and love of social interaction, and so many other things it's so confusing!

i often over analyze every little bit of dialogue, thinking of what I could've done better. I focus on my various shortcomings rather than successes because of my rational and perfectionist nature. INFJs are supposed to cherish people and see the bright side, but I see their entire being. I have intuition about what kind of a person I see, and often I can guess what instrument they play (if any) I use my logic to succeed in academics, and avoid social interaction altogether. Of course, my humanity insists on trying. So which to suppress: the nature of personality, or the human nature? I am known for being weird, cool, and extremely logical. And yet, my imagination is completely overgrown! My stories in my head are the only place that I can truly live! This has led me to become pessimistic in nature and disappointed in reality.

why can't I just be one kind of person? Even a regular paradox of an INFJ would be nice.

anyone else have a problem like mine or is it just me? (also 100% antisocial)

Sunshinesmom (not verified) says...

Hi, it sounds like you'd make a good writer. It's  also cathartic. Maybe you can make a career out of it.

Aida (not verified) says...

Hi! Omg, me too facing these difficulties as an INFJ 😣 I worry about my future every minute. What profession should I take, who to become😐 It is really annoying. I can relate...

Sashwat Singh (not verified) says...

You can go for career counselling ....  I am also confused in my career options 😔

Andrea R. (not verified) says...

I agree with most of what you said. I am also extremely confused and indecisive most of the time and pretty antisocial. As far as I know, these are common characteristics of our personality. I have to help calm myself down and not freak out about making decisions by reminding myself that everything will be ok (easier said than done, I know). I also journal a LOT and am very spiritual by praying and reading the Bible. These are where I find most of my comfort and calming. Hope this helps!

Guest (not verified) says...

Hi! Humans are such complex beings that cannot be narrowed down to just 16 personality rypes; with stressors and life scenarios, we find we may fluctuate in and out to other personality types. It is understandign these stessors and scenarios to how we feel and react can add to our inner understanding. As an INFJ who also can identify as an ENFJ and INTJ, I feel that these are nuances to our personalities in different situations. For example, my INTJ trait can come out on some political leanings or when dealing with highly analysitcal and difficult work scenarios, or, ENFJ when feeling a rare extorverted moment and crave social connections. But ultimately, 'most'of the time I am - in head and heart - an INFJ. I embrace these other traits as this what make up 'me'. Good luck on your journey of self discovery. 

Jonali (not verified) says...

I believe I am confuzzled as well.  I over analyze so much, but I realize when I'm doing it, and just have to wait for the overwhelming emorions to pass.   I have a grand imagination and have strange but fabulous dreams almost every night.  It has taken me too long to finally find a job I love, and find myself.  I am sick with an autoimmune illness that is crippling me, and has forced me to stay home alone a lot now.  I'm usually ok with all of that.   I have always been an unhappy follower, and now will only lead.  Which usually means it's me leading just me!  But I don't compromise my integrity when I only have to deal with me.  I hear you.  I hear all of you.  And I pray for us.  We are not (totally) alone.

G.p (not verified) says...

I'm exactly like you. I'm so lost, I love and dread so many things. It feels like there's no place for me in this world. I think it's because society wants us to be just one thing. It's the purpose of these profiles actually... but if you're not "just one thing" how could that work for you ? I think we're just different. And it's okay. Well, it should be okay. 

SCLight says...

Hi, I would like to talk  with you. Oftentimes just having a sounding board helps. However,  I am a true INFJ with an understanding,  perhaps, of why you have an  antisocial stance. 

 

Jay INFJ (not verified) says...

You are not alone

Jordyn (not verified) says...

Wow I completely relate! I always feel like choosing any one side of me limits me so much and I just get so scared that I'm not going to like it or it won't be as fulfilling as I need it to be career wise. I recently made a leap and decided to change my path to be something more creative but now I'm worrying about if that will be as impactful as I feel like my life needs to be. It's not like I need to feel empowered from helping people, but I just really feel like I need to help people...idk. Its just so hard to explain but I think you explained it very well - especially with the huge imagination thing. I feel like any minor thing I decide now majorly alters my huge life path so I feel conflicted a lot.

Sky (not verified) says...

Me tooo! I also just feel like I really want to help people.. I just don't know in which area... I've always conflicted, like there's a tug of war going on in my head.. everytime I start something new, I get so lost in my thoughts before I have even started - imagining all the possiblities! Does anyone else have trouble sticking to things? Or finishing projects and stuff? 

Christina Antonucci (not verified) says...

You are not alone. I'm an INFJ also and I can relate totally. Nobody in the world really knows this, but an INFJ is an Angelic personality. Angelics can be any of the personalities but a true INFJ is always an Angelic. The INFJ is the combination of the two zodiac signs reserved for God/Goddess and Angels. The Orphiuchus (the White Dragon) and The Piscis Austrinus (the Water-bearer or Merman/Mermaid). Other people in the world don't understand us because we're not of this realm.

I'm 50 years old and still trying to find where I fit in. I have met other Angelics before and they seem to be the only ones that can relate to me. My interests, ideas, tastes, etc. nobody else seems to understand. My own family can't even understand me and they don't even try. I was married to another Angelic for 15 years, but he passed away 3 years ago. We were so isolated from everyone and he was a co-dependant that I lost myself. But then again, I didn't really know who I was, to begin with. Through the relationship, I discovered who I was as an Angelic and that became my world. In doing so I could no longer relate to other people and basically became anti-social because I was tired of being hurt by everyone and their actions. What seemed normal to them appalled me because I was extremely sensitive.

So now, I'm trying to start over in life and figure out what I want to do. I have a lot of ideas about what I like and my interests or hobbies, but I have no idea how to turn them into a career I would be happy with. My mother never let me make decisions for myself when I was a child. My decisions were never good enough or what she wanted me to do. So now I have difficulty in knowing what I want in life or what I'm really good at. I have so many gifts, talents, and interests that I don't know which way to head. So I can relate with you feeling like you don't know who you are or which career might be best for you. I have a degree in Interior Design which I liked but ended up working at furniture stores in sales which I discovered I'm not good at or at the time didn't have the self-confidence to be good at. Because of all the traumatic experiences I went through, I have PTSD, suffer from depression and anxiety sometimes, and have issues with CEN (Childhood Emotional Neglect). 

For myself, I'm considering going into creative writing which I've never done much of or graphic design. There are a lot of great writers who are INFJs. Another career you could consider would be a songwriter if that appeals to you. My advice to you would be to let go of some of the perfectionism. Nobody is perfect not even God/Goddess. I was such a perfectionist that I found it difficult to let loose and me myself. If you are able to let go of some of it you'll be so much happier and free to be more creative. Another suggestion I have is to try to integrate the INFJ, INFP (the Pisces), and INTJ (the Virgo) that you feel are a part of you and not try to separate them. Maybe you are picking up the other personalities because of your sun or moon sign.

I hope the information I've shared with you can help you find your way. You're not alone and there are many Angelics out there who may or may not know who they are. Maybe I'm meant to help other Angelics find their way. Blessings to you!

Loupiote (not verified) says...

Hello there :)

I'm also and INFJ, who shares traits with INTJ. (I appologize in advance for my bad grammar, English is not my first language). I'm not sure if I've totally understood your question and problem, but to add my insight to your situation: I feel like what you're going through is totally normal. 

We INFJs along with the INFPs are one of the type which tends to overlook the most our feelings (and others'). As we are intuitive introverts, who are more axed toward feelings than rational matters, it's totally normal to go in deep with our self introspection - which is not always a good idea imo. Sometimes, you need to take time to figure out who you are, but if you're going through a phase of changing and self doubt, I think it's way better to focus on who you want to be rather than on who you currently are.  I know it's not easy, but I think you will free your mind from a huge burden if you could just focus on the person you aspire to be >> and here comes the choice you mentioned... 

However, I don't think you should supress any aspects of your personnality. They are all rich in their own ways, and while you think your current issues come from the fact that your personnality is so diverse, I think it just comes from the fact that you're focused on the diversity. If you stop paying attention to it, I think your logic and humane nature will balance themselves naturally. I look at your situation like someone focusing on each of their organs and trying to control how they work: your natural flaws and qualities are not made to be controlled and changed, but rather adapted to your lifestyle and aspiration.

You're also talking about how INFJs cherish people and see the bright side - and I personnaly think it is only true in some situations. When put in a stressful environment, I tend to become more skeptical than anything, "protecting" my warmth and giving it to only one or two people that I care about, and acting super cold to everyone else as a defense mechanism. Maybe I'm mistaking, but your environment may be part of the reason why you're going through this confusing phase. In a workplace environment, it's difficult to let yourself attach to people if you're not sure if you want to be where you are, and if you're not really feeling like you're belonging. 

Maybe part of resolving your problem would be to find yourself a meaning. Again, everyone is different and I may be mistaking, but INFJs tend to really need a set up goal to move forward in life. Be it helping others (in healthcare, psychology...), creative jobs to express yourself, or any career where you can improve... I think you should use this overthinking capacity to wonder what trully matters to you. Once you'll have a set up goal, life will seem more organized to you, you would feel more relaxed and (maybe) it will be easier to find a little bit more social energy to open up to people. Like this post mentioned, we tend to be people who needs to move one step at a time, but here you're trying to focus on every single aspect of your personnality and life, which explains this chaos. 

I feel like you're still young, but even if you're not, keep in mind that it's never too late to try new things! 

 

I hope I somehow kind of helped, and thank you for sharing your story :)

INFTPJ...? (not verified) says...

INFTPJ, can that be a thing? I feel much the same as you. I think, thanks to our logical-analytical skills, we know not to treat/handle every situation or person in the same way. As you said, the trick is learning which trait to use and when to use it.

The best way I have been able to explain it to myself is that we have been blessed with the ability to choose. We can choose the characteristics that will be the most beneficial(for us or for others) in a given situation. I very much feel as though I am in control of myself. Rarely do I react in an emotionally charged way(positively or negatively). Everything, right down to my reactions are thought out and serve a purpose. 

But all this also requires that I obsessively analyze, observe, and, think about e v e r y t h i n g. How can someone be so calm and confident but an overthinking mess all at the same time? It really is quite the paradox...

Not sure if this was helpful at all, but maybe it's just good enough to know we're not alone :)

I just did the personality test and it said I'm an INFJ

It explains a lot cause I'm always wondering what's wrong with me

I'm constantly searching for how to fix myself and make people like me.

I enjoy time alone, yet I want to socialise 

Music rules my life- I write and listen

However, I wouldn't consider myself an empath

But, I always have a concern for what other feel, and I tend to have my predictions on how they feel

I like deep connections

We all pretty much have the same stories...I personally tried to fit in...I didn't get who I really was exactly.Then in highschool it started getting to me,I felt frustrated and confused.A girl I didn't even know at that time literally told me that,"You look confused"...then after highschool, I found a site took a test and I didn't believe it then after getting a few emails I finally understood.I had layers of personalities I had adapted to I almost completely forgot who I am...but I'm glad to say I'm happier now😊,finallyyy...learning and loving to just be me...love you guys❤️... remember to be Kind and I got here because of God,so I'm grateful to him too for his unfailingly and undeserved love🙇🏾‍♀️❤️...you find your identity in him,it all starts with him don't forget that

Male INFj (not verified) says...

Wow, this article makes literally so much sense about me. I took an MBTI test recently, and I'm an INFJ-T. When I was a younger kid, I felt different from others. I didn't have much friends, and I didn't fit in with the "popular" crowd. My only friends as an elementary schooler were, I'm pretty sure, Intuitives like me (one of my closest friends is ENTP, I'm 99% sure of it). Then, when I went to 5th grade, everything changed. I had my first taste of popularity (as the Four-Square Champion of School), and I grew to strangely like it. So when I went to middle school, I turned into a "social chameleon", or a guy that changes his outward personality to fit in (I'm quite sure that almost all of my current friends are (STPs, with a smaller minority being SFs, and the occasional ENFP or ENTP). So I started to change myself, and eventually became piled up with layers and layers of personalities that I didn't even know who I was by the time I started high school. Then, I began to pick up on the MBTI Obsession I had in 6th grade, and after being honest with myself, I got the INFJ Type. And after reading it, I finally realized that this is who I actually am. And yeah, I've decided to screw my masks and go back to the way I was in elementary school. Yeah, sorry if I bored you with my life story, but it feels good to get this off of my chest.

Peace

F INFJ (not verified) says...

Thanks for sharing it, I feel more understood thanks to you.  It's like we have the same story but in different ways (sounds wird i know haha). When I was little I had a few friends, but nobody was really close to me. I felt different (not that i cared at that time). Then, a few years later, I started to get in to student's politics, and as you know our type it's well known for our sense of justice. So I became really popular too, and I liked it (sorta), but  i started to be like a social camaleon, to fit in too. When people don't understand something they tend to be kind of aggressive towards it, uncounciounsly i guess. And like i'm kind of a mirror of others emotions, i can't take all that pressure. So i was in a position where i started to realize i didn't like the things others liked, and i didn't think or feel like the rest, i felt different, like i wasn't normal.  That's why being a social camaleon was so convinient, i was able to protect myself and act like a normal person. But, as you say,  i became piled up with layers, and i lost myself. I started taking personality test of all kind until i found mbti. And it said i was INFJ. And I stopped, i began to think what was I doing, why I was feeling so badly, and I wandered why I was so obsessed with this personality tests.  And i realized i had losted myself, so  I decided to be who I was again, I'm an INFJ, and not just that, but this was like a lead to retourn to myself.

Sorry to bother you with the story of an stranger, but i felt so happy to know there was someone like me out there, so i needed to share it :)

Eddie56 (not verified) says...

Thank you for your story, like the rest of the contributions in this thread I too felt for so many years disconnected from the rest of the people around me, different, misunderstood, and with a deep sense of unfulfillment. Even today in my late 20s I have a hard time finding people who I can genuinely connect with, and that at times can bring an unexplained loneliness. Granted solitude can also bring peace, healing and enable you live a genuine life. I am happy of who I am and even though I’ve struggled for a very long time with the deeper feelings and emotions that INFJs experience, as I learn more about myself life only gets better!

Here are my two cents😊, best of wishes to all INFJs out there!

Dyas (not verified) says...

I feel so happy finally you now being true to others and yourself. As an infj myself, I'm trying to hard to fit in into other's world but it always ended up with nothing. But after seeing your comment here, I think the most important thing is not to fit in anywhere, but to show who we are. To show what is infjs truly are.

I am and I NFJ and my son Dyas Is 16 years old and this is the first time I've ever come across the name Dyas I think it's awesome is this your last name or first name I live in Illinois in a little town and I just think it's amazing that your name is Dyas

dude ur story is so very identical to me that I cant even express!!!....and it really sucks when I dont find an INFJ friend...cuz "birds with same feathers fly together"...and i dont find any bird with my feathers...but alhumdulillah proud to be amongst the rarest type of people on the face of this earth!

OingoBoingo (not verified) says...

Man, your story really resonates with me.  As a male INFJ-T I went through almost the exact situation.  So many people are in disbelief when I tell then I'm more introverted because of my "social chameleon mask".

So glad you shared. I did the mask thing too and am still working on peeling back the layers and being true to myself :)
