INFJs at work

[edit | edit source]

INFJ individuals are goal-oriented. They prefer careers that are inspiring and add value to their goals. They are motivated by ideas, not money. Even though they are introverted, they are good communicators. They prefer role as psychologists, teachers, counselors, yoga instructors, social workers, etc.

INFJs in relationships

[edit | edit source]

INFJs tend to hold back part of themselves and like most introverts it can take them a while to become comfortable around new people. Having extraverted feeling as their auxiliary function, INFJs often feel the need for verbal affirmation and support from people close to them. Many of the INFJ's actions are dependent on the emotions or what they perceive to be the emotions of others and as result immature INFJs can neglect their own feelings and opinions when making decisions. The INFJ's focus on the emotions of others can lead to them being harmonizers or, on the other end of the same spectrum, manipulators. It can also cause them much social anxiety if they have not properly or fully developed their auxiliary function. INFJs are natural romantics who seek long-term or lifelong relationships. While they may not all believe in soulmates, they tend to put pressure on their partners in trying to achieve the perfect relationship. Some theorists have suggested that INFJs are most compatible with ENTPs (the Inventor).

How to deal with an INFJ

[edit | edit source]

Be honest with them. Don't try and manipulate them; they will see through it and never trust you again. INFJ's have an uncanny ability to read people's emotions, and they tend to take others emotions onto themselves. They easily make connections between things by matching up pieces of conversations and visual memories. They can appear to be psychic because of this. INFJs make up less than 1% of the population. You'll often encounter them in education, psychology and the arts.
