According to Carl Jung, the personalities of people are represented by general attitude: sensitive – intuitive, extroverted – introverted, judging – perceiving, and thinking – feeling. So, from these personalities when you get out the 4 initial letters INFJ, you get the rarest type which is Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging. When you look at a classroom, you can see only one or two students who are quiet and observing of what is going on around. This is the rarest type. They are not shy, but introverted. But, being quiet is not the only characteristic of this personality.
Being a writer, and even more so when I was younger, I think I fit this description pretty well (luckily there’s nothing about humility listed).
Below you can read 10 traits of the unique INFJ personality:
- The Focus is on Important Things
These people always concentrate on important things and deal with challenges in a confident and easy way. And, when the things do not go as planned, they find new ways to achieve their goals.
- Hard Workers
Many people from the other personality types are lazy, but the INFJ’s are real hard-workers. They always try to do their best in order to make their dreams come true because nothing comes easy in life.
- Believing in Their Gut
Probably you have noticed that “N” in INFJ stands of iNtuition. So, these people possess a strong intuition. And, when they sense that something bad is happening, they immediately start doing something about it. Also, they can always feel if something is going to happen in their life.
- Only Few Chosen Friends
These people choose their close friends carefully. They are often alone because they enjoy their solitude, and do not enjoy hanging in large social groups.
They are all about feelings. Whenever someone needs help, they will be there to give them a hand. Also, they are able to put themselves in another’s shoes and understanding their feelings. And, feeling what others feel is the reason why they often need some alone time to recharge their batteries
- Read Other People Easily
Being an empath means having the ability to read people’s minds through their emotions. They are very good at noticing when someone is lying. This characteristic helps them stay safe when they are around people with bad intentions.
While being alone, these people let their thoughts travel around. As a result, they get a lot of new and creative ideas that can share with their friends.
Since these people are visionaries, idealists, and creative, they are able to inspire everyone around them, especially their close friends.
- Love Towards Writing
Expressing their thoughts and creativity is these people’s way of life. But, since as we mentioned, they prefer being alone, they choose writing as a way of expression. So, when they write down what they think and feel, they feel much peaceful and calm.
- Great at Solving Problems
INFJ’s are natural when it comes to solving problems because they always see the bigger picture. So, this ability helps them to notice which things are not right and find a way to fix them.
At any rate, I’m on the road today. I’ll post a Jung quotation tomorrow and wish you well. More thoughts on all this on Friday!
Food will be hamburgers without buns on the road and a nice salad at the Inn in Elk Rapids tonight.
Happy Wednesday! Tell me your hopes and dreams the new year — diet or otherwise.
