INFJ Strengths

Practical insight. Some people are visionaries while others are down-to-earth problem solvers, but INFJs manage to straddle the line between both identities—and they usually succeed masterfully. INFJs are insightful thinkers who see through situations and people effectively and enjoy developing practical strategies for action. 

Compassion. As a Feeling type, you might expect an INFJ to show compassion—but what sets them apart is that their empathy comes with a sharp intuitive edge. They are quick to recognize worry and unhappiness in friends and loved ones, even when outward signs of distress are not visible to others. INFJs are uniquely capable of detecting unspoken and unacknowledged suffering, and are called into action by their instinctive ability to see beneath the surface.

Keeping the peace. Mediating disputes is hard work, but INFJs have an astounding ability to help heal the rifts that divide people. They intuitively sense the real suffering that anger can cause if left to fester, and because they are good listeners they are quite effective at helping warring parties find workable solutions that will satisfy the needs of all. And they do it with great energy and determination.

Decisiveness. For INFJs, obstacles exist to be overcome and no problem can outmatch the strength and resilience that these types possess deep inside. INFJs follow through on their ideas with conviction, and have the willpower and decisiveness necessary to see projects through to the end. INFJs live for the opportunity to solve problems and bring about positive change in the world.

INFJ Weaknesses

Overlooking details. No matter how practically-oriented they aspire to be, INFJs have a tendency to get so caught up in theorizing the big picture that they forget to account for some of the precious details that can separate success from failure. Details always matter, and while INFJs may recognize this in principle, in practice they aren’t always as diligent about the small stuff as they should be. 

Intensely private. Despite their loving and sensitive natures, INFJs have a tendency to close themselves off from the world and don’t give people the chance to know them or see the wonderful qualities they possess. Even in their relations with family and trusted friends, INFJs can be enigmatic. When they are feeling frustrated or introspective, they may retreat from social contact without so much as a word of explanation, which can throw others for a loop.

Conflict averse. INFJs dislike conflict intensely and will usually intervene to stop it, but this is one area where their perspective can get distorted. INFJs often fail to recognize that conflict can actually serve a useful purpose, allowing a good process of give-and-take to be established and giving all parties the opportunity to resolve their problem forever. INFJs would be wise to acknowledge the value of open and honest dialogue, instead of automatically assuming that all squabbling is harmful.

Sensitive. Once an INFJ has made up their mind, they tend to be very confident in their conclusions and may not have much tolerance for those who continue to dissent. When someone challenges their conclusions, they can react very strongly and are especially vulnerable to criticism.

INFJ Growth and Development

In order to reach their full potential, INFJs should:

Question their intuition. INFJs have outstanding instincts for the most part, but sometimes their intuition betrays them when they are dealing with others. When something is bothering them, INFJs will often withdraw into the safety of their own heads rather than speaking openly about what they are feeling; conversely, they seldom express their feelings of love, affection and appreciation as directly as might be expected given the depth of the emotions they experience. To improve their communication habits, INFJs should go out of their way to share their feelings—both good and bad—with others regardless of how uncomfortable it makes them feel to do so. 

Give others the benefit of the doubt. INFJs are insightful, instinctive and persuasive. But despite the enormous effort that INFJs invest in developing and selling their concepts and ideas, sometimes dissidents will remain. INFJs sometimes become disenchanted with those who refuse to accept their conclusions, and they will convince themselves that their opponents have hidden agendas and are acting in bad faith. When situations like this arise, INFJs should try to accept that total consensus is impossible and that some will continue to hold contrary viewpoints. In situations like this, both sides should simply agree to disagree and move on. 

Let others agree to disagree, too. When tensions are high and arguments are heated, INFJs will do all they can to restore lost cohesion and tranquility. But their love of harmony and aversion to division is so powerful that INFJs refuse to accept that sometimes the best way to end disputes is to bring them out into the open, where bridges of understanding can be built. On balance, INFJs’ dislike of conflict is a good thing. But their efforts to play peacemaker might be more successful if they would concentrate on keeping the lines of communication open when disagreements arise instead of always trying to sweep everything under the rug. 

Make connections with extraverts. Because sharing with anyone outside a small trusted circle goes against their instincts, too often talented INFJs choose to keep their gifts wrapped up and hidden even though they have much to contribute. But INFJs would benefit by cultivating friendly relationships with extraverted people whenever possible. Opposites attract, and there is no doubt that being around more naturally open and communicative people can help bring INFJs out of their shells and out into the world where others can benefit from their intellect, empathy and compassion. 

Slow down! INFJs are productive and effective when they make a concerted effort to focus on one project at a time. But their fertile imaginations frequently undermine their efforts to stay on the straight and narrow, and they will often start new projects based on fresh inspirations before old ones are finished—and, before they know it, they will find themselves buried under an avalanche of work. There is really nothing INFJs can do to moderate the pace of their inspirations, but if they constantly remind themselves to slow down and take things one at a time, they may be able to resist the urge to go off on tangents at least some of the time.

Hey Ryan, Sup! (not verified) says...

Hello guys! I recently confirmed that I'm an INFJ too.  And with that.I just want to share my experiences of being an INFJ (curious if it's just me or it's common with most INFJs). 

1. For me it's hard to be an INFJ when you're a guy. hahahah! I don't know, I find myself different from most guys. It's like I'm more sensitive, and more in touch with emotions that I fear that women will not see me as "manly" enough. I know shouldn't be comparing myself to others but I tend to keep trying to blend in to the norm and it's so hard. (But also, I see the perks of being sensitive, usually I'm the "counselor" in my own circle of friends which I really like to do.)

2. I feel different. I actually have many circle of friends but there's always a time that I feel like I'm not fitting in. I actually feel like an alien trying to blend it so people will not be suspicious. HAHAHAH. I constantly try to change myself to blend in and it's actually tiring. Though I know my friends still accept me for who I am but I still keep adapting myself just to feel normal. hahhaha

3. (Last negativity then I'll start with the positive/interesting ones hahaha) I have really low self-esteem. I don't know, I always think that I'm still not the best version of myself and I should aim to be that. Even though many people keep saying to me that I'm talented, good-looking, kind, I tend to feel embarrassed when hearing it. (just even typing the 3 descriptions of myself made me feel uncomfortable hahaha) It's like my brain just disregard that strengths and would prefer to focus on the flaws that I have to fix. And with this part, I just want to add how ironic it is that I have self-esteem issues yet I'm ambitious with my dreams and my goals. I always caught myself thinking I'm a big shot, imagining my rise to stardome while jamming to Panic! at the disco's High Hopes. hahaha! I have this part of me thinking that I'm special. It's weird getting caught with low self worth and thinking that I'm something superior actually. 

4. (interesting traits coming up) Is it just me or is it common to other INFJs to be attracted to classy things? I usually prefer being sophisticated with my style of clothes. I tend to gravitate on things that have this beauty and exclusiveness in its attributes. Hahahahah!

5. Adapting. I don't know but I think it's common to all INFJs that we're good at adapting Is that right? It's like for me, I can switch from being the shy, timid type of guy into an extroverted, out-going person if the situation requires me to. There's a time where I'm involved in shooting a film then I saw a newcomer joined us. As I observed this guy, I quickly absorbed his feeling of awkwardness and being shy that what I did is I become a really extroverted type for the person. I tell stories and share jokes with him, introduce him to my friends, I even make small talks (that's uncomfortable for me to do). I don't know, I think it depends on my environment. I can switch from being passive, shy person, into a dominant, sociable leader in seconds. 

6.There's a time where I met this new group of friends and I really did spend a lot of time with them. Then all of the sudden I start to "absorb" or adapt to their personalities. I became an outgoing extrovert for a week that I never knew I can actually become. Then after that I think I had a "low-battery" then I spent a week locking myself inside my house "reverting to my usual self. hahahaah

As I end my post, I think I just want to state that being an INFJ can be interesting, fun, and sometimes it's hard, exausting perhaps. There's a time where you want people to know you more, like you really are trying to open up but you still end up feeling misunderstood. plus, INFJs have the feeling of being different or left-out to also deal with. What I'm saying is that it's really tiring to be an INFJ but I just want to cheer up the person who's reading this that there is someone who really understand us which is our God! He knows our struggles, and even our flaws and weaknesses and yet He's there to accept us. Also He even know your big and small victories in life that some people may miss out (and I know it excruciating to feel unappreciated 'cause there's a side in us which want to please people) but God knows all your victories even if it's simple and He's proud for you accomplishing it. Whenever we feel terrible, or tired, let's remember that God's there for us to give us comfort and rest :) (Matthew 11:28)

Synne (not verified) says...

I have felt all of what you are feeling! On the noe selfasteem but high ambiotion part, it has helped me to do student volanteer work i truly belive in. This makes me feel that im becoming the person i want to be more of in the future. So doing things that make me proud of myself increases my self esteam. Im not religious, which i can see makes me even more lonley, but countributing to society right now, while Studying keep satisfied. I also can swich from shy to outgoing in seconds, And the student volentaring also helps me here. Im always outgoing here because I work with something I belive in and we have to work in a devoted team to finish good projects. 

So Thats a quick tip from me! I also had to lock myself in for a week after beeing outgoing with a new group of friends, but this is not the case with voulentare work. It may because the work is not about me, while whit the group of friends, I had to as you said, become myself again, but also prosess everything we talked about. I am for the most part only friends with introverts, but as my self esteam grows from doing things I believe in, I enjoy more and more henging out with extroverted people from time to time. I still find it hard to become close friends with them, Even exausting, claude i dont think they seek friendships on the deep level a want. 

I also feel less og an erge to adopt to people after doing meaningful work by myself. But Thats still a challange, as i still have the irritating trait of wanting to be liked by everyone, instead of beeing myself and hoping they find me interesting enough to tagg me along. 

I never ones felt normal (as in met another person that is like me) my entire childhood, but University is the best place so far.

Can't tell my name (not verified) says...

I'm in a lot of pain. I just want to be normal. I want to express my emotions, but there's a big barrier. I don't know where to go. I feel like no one could understand me like I tend to. It almost feels like no one even cares about me like I have care for them. It's quite exhausting. I'm trying my best to shine in my talents, I'm trying to distract myself from the lain I have. But during the night time .... when everyone is gone and I'm alone with my thoughts, I feel so lonely. I'm not able to open up myself to others like they do to me. I know the deepest secrets of other people, yet no one knows who I am underneath. No one even cares to give a thought about it. These are the thoughts I tend to ponder about when I'm alone. Please help :/

INFJ’s Up 😀 (not verified) says...

Remember you have to take care of yourself as well. Don't waste your energy if it is not being appreciated. Start opening up little by little with friends and family and let them in, that's what friends and fam are for. Find an activity group that does something you like sports, books, hiking, etc. or exercise find videos on youtube on how to exercise properly so you don't hurt something. This is good for you mind. Eat healthy take care of you first.

want you to know that u r not alone.. cause somewhere on the planet there are people who’s feeling just like you everyday . 

Much love .. i pray for your heart to find peace and your soul to be healed❤️

Guest (not verified) says...

I think all there is to say is that there is nothing wrong with you. You're doing an amazing job by being a selfless friend to so many. Honestly it is unfair and I'm sure extremely exhausting that you pour and pour and pour out to others but can't find a place to be filled again. But I want to emphasize again that you're doing nothing wrong. Where you are in life is exactly where you need to be. And they all become learning experiences. You're going to one day love where you are in life, love the person you've become, love the friends that have walked into your life, and love the heartaches and troubles you've endured to make it where you have. Don't give up. Always be hopeful and trust that you are loved loved loved, because you are.

Lanie (not verified) says...

I understand where you are coming from as an infj. I recently went through rejection from someone I liked. Sure, it hurt a lot knowing that they did'nt like me the way I liked them, and I felt like there was something I was doing wrong. The one thing I would say, is find a close friend, or maybe a few, who you can trust your innnermost feelings with. Most importantly, just know that the love you feel for other people is like a gift. You should'nt give it all away, and hope for love from others in return. Happiness from external things is only temporary. You have to love yourself. It is a hard lesson to grasp, but with time, it gets better, I promise. 

infj friend (not verified) says...

I'm typically not vocal about expressing my thoughts on a chat board, but it seems there are so many with my personality type experiencing sadness, loneliness, pain, and despair, that I feel like I need to speak up a second time and offer some light from the confidence and conviction that is rooted in my heart.  There is only one solid, faithful, and true source of hope, joy, and peace in this life, and that is God.  I encourage you to start seeking and developing a personal relationship with God through prayer (prayer is just talking to God - tell Him how you feel) and by listening to his voice from Scripture (try or the Youversion Bible app).  Know that his love for you is so great that he sent his Son Jesus Christ to experience life as a man, overcome sin and death, and give access to God for those who believe and accept His gift of sacrifice.  We are miserable and helpless by ourselves, and that is all that God wants us to acknowledge- that we need Him, our Creator, to redeem us from our own misery and misguided efforts.  The Creator of the universe and the Creator of you and your unique personality is more than capable of bringing joy, hope, peace, and purpose into your life, if that is what you want and you are willing to just ask Him for it and willing to start to develop a relationship with Him.  I went through a very lonely and sad time in my life, but I never felt despair or hopelessness, because I was constantly able to pray and lean into the strength and love of God and Jesus Christ, and I felt His great compassion and love carrying me through.  Two of my favorite chapters of the Bible are Psalm 103 and Psalm 139 - might be a good place to start for anyone interested.  

Guest (not verified) says...

Amen!! I completely understand how people with our personality type may feel despair, loneliness, and unhappiness. Please truly consider this post!! God is our answer to all these feelings. You are never, ever alone when you decide to put your faith in Christ. When no one understands, He does. When you can find no one who will listen, He will. Begin by reading the Bible and focusing your attention on the things that God has promised you. Also, understand your (and everyone's) human condition. Kneel before your Creator and ask Him to forgive you and come into your life. Lastly, surround yourself with people who share your faith. I wish I had more words to express that God has you in His hands and cares for you. I want to leave you with a  few Bible verses and hope that in them you find comfort and peace: 

"For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews. 4:15-16

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well." Psalms. 139: 14

God bless you!

Amen sister...because we tend to be so private, we can take our pain and troubles to Jesus and seek healing through Him. I've found meditation on His word better than ruminating over past hurts.  Whatever is just, pure, lovely, noble and good report, think on these things. God will renew your heart and mind if you let Him.


Zay (not verified) says...

Also what you wrote down here right now is exaclty what you need to tell someone else. DO IT! It can be terrifying but if you want to be loved you must allow others to love you and that means saying and expressing what someone could use to hurt or reject you. But it is worth the risk, and if you do get hurt or rejected learn from it and draw that line like I said before and withdraw that power from them and find someone else that you can build trust with and try again

Zay (not verified) says...

Remain vulnerbale to yourself as well as to others little by little, theres no way people are going to understand what isnt expressed. When it comes to relationships draw lines and not walls. Its easier to find people to connect with when you know yourself. Because compatibility also requires you in the formula as well.

hope this can help in some way, even im still trying but it is possible. Take the risk because at the end of the day at least your trying and reaching

Hi-there-it will be ok (not verified) says...

The same thing happened to me and I put up with it far longer than I should have. Find people who you can help but who are also going to help you and step away from those who ignore you. You deserve more than to be someones counselor. They need to be there for you too! Every relationship only works when it's two sided.

Far From The World... (not verified) says...

i wish there was a club or something like that for people like us(INFJs) who don't belong anywhere and don't fit in any categories.

Lula (not verified) says...

ME TOO! So freaking lonely with my thoughts. Recently met someone who appeared to understand me and really liked me. Then he ghosted me and I feel so hurt. Wonder if I did or said something to scare him off or if he was just looking for a quick hook up and I wasn't putting out fast enough. At times it seemed like we were one mind; for example, he would call me just as I was picking up the phone to text him. Now I question it all and feel so betrayed by my own judgement/intuition. It felt so right; how could I be so wrong? Can't stop thinking about him and the future I'd imagined. Can't stop wondering what happened and why he ghosted me. Want to call desperately, but don't dare open myself up to more hurt. Damn this hurts and I wish my mind would just stop!

Jay66 (not verified) says...

That sucks. I hate how unaccountable some people can be. If your heart is anything like mine, you must want to throw your heart and soul into someone, and it's gut wrenching to find that people that you thought were worth it actually turn out not to be. It totally sucks to extend your trust to someone, and then have it thrown in your face. I've been through a situation recently that has pretty much made me feel how you describe above, questioning my own intuition, and wondering if there's anyone out there that's actually capable of the strength of attachment that I want to have. I would actually be really interested in talking further with you; I'm on a few dating sites but there's not much around where I live (New Zealand). If you're keen to make a new friend, let me know and we can be internet [pixel]pals : )

Zay (not verified) says...

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW!! Go and talk to him and ask for an explanation (dont demand but ask) As well as letting him know why you want to know. No matter the outcome it will set yourself free from this torment

eurydice (not verified) says...

i observe that my emotions cannot flow out directly, most of the time they must pass through a censor/a gate, which may be a person, a thought or just myself. is it common in INFJs ? because i am pondering my type. (i am not in the healthiest state.)

Fellow INFJ (not verified) says...

While it is impossible to apply personal experience onto others, I would say you sound quite normal and very much like myself, actually.  I think the key (at least for me) to coping is to accept yourself.  Within yourself.  You are who you are, and at base there is not a way to change that.  Accept that you are as wonderfully flawed as everyone else walking this earth.  Revel in those things that may you YOU - seek to love your inner self!  As for your emotional "editor", I see this as a good thing.  Who wants to be knee-jerk reacting and raving emotionally over everything?  Much better, and quite possibly more healthy, to process things first before reacting.  In short, you are just fine.  Congratulations for being you:)

Mysterious Universe (not verified) says...

I wonder how many psychics/psychic-mediums are infj, compared to other types. I think the introversion and intuition are two important factors in most psychics and/or psychic-mediums since they are feelers. In the psychic world, being able to feel everything is basically the basis of the gift(s).

Nosce Te Ipsum (not verified) says...

Hey! I'm INFJ and used to make a living giving psychic readings. I always attributed this to having a lot of Pisces influence in my astrology chart, but after taking the MB test and finding out I'm this type, it makes a lot of sense what you said. Are INFJs known to be drawn to the occult?

Gert-Jan ten Ham (not verified) says...

With my type being INFJ with Enneagram 415, I wonder how frequently people of my type get D in the DISC assessment. I have done this assessment several times, with the Truity DISC assessment finally confirming my type. I got type D as my confirmed type. It sounds contradictionary to me, but I have read regularly that INFJs are walking contradictions. 

Violet (not verified) says...

Hello everyone! 

I can't believe how many INFJs there are!
Yesterday I started taking personality tests after watching a Youtube video about introverts and got several different answers from different tests, hence why I decided to just read about the different types. I came across INFJ (one of the results I got) and immediately thought "Ok, that's me!".

Anyway, the reason for all this digging and reading is because I want to get to know myself better and also use the information to think about my future.
As a child I loved the thought of becoming a doctor and have managed to hold onto this dream for a while; however, recently I have noticed that I can be quite a lazy person and do procrastinate at times. Becoming a doctor still seems like a good option because I get to help people and learn about the complex and amazing human body. Nevertheless, I am afraid that studying medicine might be too much for me and lead to constant stress... Other jobs do seem quite appealing as well e.g. writing; but then again, I feel like I'm not creative enough and fear that I will run out of things to write about.

I might be overthinking a little (not uncommon for INFJs :p) but choosing a job will have a huge impact on my future life which is why I'd like to make the right decision. I don't know if any of you can help me but if you do happen to have any advice, I would be more than happy to hear it!

Kianabreanemedina says...

Hey there!

I've recently discovered I'm an INFJ as well. So much has been clearer! I'm like you in th procrastination, overthinking, (which i call indecisiveness haha) and wanting to help others! maybe a compromise is caregiving. Either for the elderly or the young ( aka behavirally/intellectually challenged youth or adults). I myslf work as a caregiver and love it! I'm currently transitioning into Direct Suppport work which is basically another title for caregiving, specifically rferring to developmentally challenged people. Less schooling involved! Still can be stressful at times, but I found its a weel worthy trade :) I hope this helps! Good luck!

P.S. As a youngin' I always dreamt of becoming a chilidren's author! 

Nemo (not verified) says...

Hello Violet,

if you are still in your early twenties you should just try it with medicine. Your passion and idealism will probably help you getting through the tough times. You can try many different fields in medicine and with this type psychology/psychiatry sounds quite appealing. There is also lot's to write about in topics like this and many interesting ideas to be followed or developed.

I feel you with being picky on the job. I changed my studies two times and will probably change jobs many times.

Cheers from a fellow INFJ.

Tess (not verified) says...

Hi Violet,

I do give you kudos for your quest of self-knowledge before investing your energies and money into a proper academic path. Very wise.

However, the MBTI, while useful in some areas of life, is really just a shorthand categorization that summarizes the complexities of one's astrological makeup. If you are aware of its origins, you then understand that Meyers and Briggs created the test based on Carl Jung's work in psychiatry, which included astrology, an ancient form of psychology.

In order to hone in on your vocational leanings, I strongly recommend having your natal chart read either by an experienced astrologer, which may cost around a couple hundred dollars. Or you can DIY for around $40. Either way, examining your astrological profile is the surest way to get to the pith of what makes you tick. You can find a handful of decent astrologers on Quora and other sites, and for DIY readings I recommend or

I do believe that in understanding and constructing anything, one must work from the bottom up.

Best wishes,

Hi Violet!

Similarly, I was recently hunting for information on my personality type because I was curious if it had changed - and changed it had. I was previously an ISTJ but now I register as an INFJ and it couldn't be more true after reading. 

The reason I am replying to your comment is because I did attend medical school for around 17 weeks before ultimately deciding it was not my calling. As a fellow INFJ, I understand your desire to contribute to the well-being of others, do something more than just earn material gain, and also achieve excellence. For me, medical school was extremely taxing, but I was succeeding. When I left school, I had a 3.85 GPA. I was highly pleased with the mastery I was working towards, the universal usefulness/helpfulness of being a physician, job security, and exclusive trust patients have for their physicians. However, what weighed me down the most were the years I was on track to invest studying in school and apprenticing, if you will, through residency. Studying in my apartment night after night grew wearisome. I felt that I was watching life pass me by to an extent. I value family and the close relationships I have with friends immensely, and the medical doctor route was one that would force me away from them for an extended period of time - missing so many events and important time with them. I also consider myself a devout Christian, and I felt that my true passion to impact people spiritually was being overshadowed. Ultimately, I chose to pursue a field that would demand less personal sacrifice, while still changing other's lives. I hope that this bit of insight is somehow helpful!

Hi, if you do not mind mentioning, what career did you end up going to instead. I am a fellow INFJ and always thought about being a doctor, and I think I can do it (obviously with alot of hardwork)but yea I fear I will miss out alot on life and its events, and thats one of the main things that stopping me from opting to go into medical school. so if you found something more suitable and already have the experience of attending medical school and then opting out, would love to know more. thanks.

KarenB (not verified) says...

I have taken the official Meyers-Briggs personality test 3x and all 3 times it was shown that I was an INFJ.  Yes, it is the rarest, but people who are one have mostly felt like an alien or outsider growing up....because face it, no one understands us. We are very deep, intuitive, and feeling. We feel for people and all aspects of life...we may paint a picture of the sky or write a poem or short story to describe all the beauty that brings us to tears...we feel deeply. Although we love people, we have generally only a few close friends. We chose to be alone and ponder on energizes us. Being around loud places and crazy crowds of people full of drama and problems really wears us out. Our ideal relaxation (at least mine) would be sitting in the middle of the forest with a book with my cat at my side. I'd pet my cat, stare at the beautiful trees, sky, and take it all in and then fall into my books wear I connect on fascinating topics...then when I'm tired of reading, I'd gaze upon the beauty of the forest again....all the while taking in all the sounds of nature (my music). We are very deep, though-provoking people, and we see the beauty in things and people. But, sometimes people can really tire us out, we like to recharge our battery with alone time of deep reflection. It is NOT powers us and gives us the strength to be strong for others (to be the protector, the counselor) for when we are needed by others....that task gets very tiring. Hopefully, my explanation gives a person a good idea of the generalities felt by a INFJ.

I took several different tests, only one called me INFJ, but after reading the descripctions I knew it was me, so I stuck with it. It's probably best to decide for yourself, since tests can't always be correct, but some people might not really understand who they are all the same. I was glad when the test called me INFJ so I had some kind of 'proof' but it really didn't matter. I feel it's good to do both, and read through all descriptions to know for sure. (that was lengthy sorry)

I feel like I speak a language of symbols and gestures that no one understands and that maybe they're not even willing to try.  (The universe is full of meaning and there's a universe inside every person.)  Most people aren't willing to love what they don't understand.

As another female INFJ, I can relate especially in my adolescents.  I believe most people only see about 40% of what is going on in the subconious part of their mind.  They only listen to mainly the instinctual part, well the intellgent norms.  (Flight, or Fight)  Most people are extroverts so they are too busy comparing, competing or adapting to the trends of society.  There is something that they cannot understand or see inside of us the INFJs. Which in my experience has made them question our ways, but when giving a task they know we go way beyond expentations.  So, as far as symbols go, that is your intution telling you something.  It may be a sign of what may come, or a sign of something inside you that you need to find.  I learned to listen to these symbols and to reflect on them.  I am a believer in humanity and the power of the will.  Whatever you seek you will find.  Whatever you want you will get but you need to be dilgent and listen to yourself, and your needs.

What a beautiful thing to say, that we each have a universe inside us. As an INFJ, I feel the same, that it's very hard for people to get us. But our super power helps us to understand them and maybe bridge the gap, I hope.

Rule number #1 :

Never be number #2 .

i as an INFJ always think this way . they usually are 100 or 0 . i dont know if it's a good thing or not but i think it can help you being very brilliant in at least one field. (theoritically)

but in reality i dont know why i am not so successful .

what is wrong ???

i want your opinions

Because in rule #1 said that, you never be #2. But it is not closing the possibilities of you being #3 to #(x > 3)

hey guys. i am an infj and a very perfectionist  person.

I spend a lot of time in my dreams and sometimes I totally forget about the real world.

As a matter of fact I prefer to live in my imagination and this is destroying my life because I can't act .

I have been waiting my whole life for a miracle .maybe  some of you have the same problem.

Waiting for something that will never happen kills you.

But I am f . . king done waiting.
