INFJ = Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging

If you've ever taken the Meyers-Briggs Personality test, you should know your personality type. If you haven't, you can take the test HERE.

I have taken the test and the formulation of INFJ (I feel) fits me perfectly.

INFJ's are considered best suited for social work as  INFJ personalities are drawn towards helping those in need – they may rush to the place of a major disaster, participate in rescue efforts, do charity work etc. INFJs see this as their duty and their purpose in life – people with this personality type firmly believe that nothing else would help the world as much as getting rid of all the tyrants. Karma and similar concepts are very attractive to INFJs.

Those who know me should already be aware of the fact that INFJ's have a tendency toward “overheating” as our zeal and determination can sometimes get out of hand. As introverts, INFJs need to have some “alone time” every once in a while or otherwise our internal energy reserves will get depleted really quickly. If this happens, the INFJ may surprise everybody around them by withdrawing from all activities for a while – and since other people usually see INFJs as extroverts, this can leave them both surprised and concerned.

Finally, INFJs take great care of other people’s feelings and expect others to return the favor. Unsurprisingly, those of us with this personality type are very sensitive and vulnerable to conflicts – even the most rational INFJs may find it quite difficult to not take criticism personally. This is the INFJ’s Achilles’ heel – if someone with an INFJ personality cannot escape the conflict, they will do their best to deal with it head on, but this will result in a lot of stress and may also potentially lead to health problems or highly irrational behavior.
