And just what is an INFJ personality? INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities.
INFJ is the acronym for Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, and Judging. It refers to one of the 16 Myers – Briggs personality types. Only one percent of the population has an INFJ personality, making it the rarest of all the types. So, if you happen to fall into this category, congratulations, you’re very unique.
The Myers – Briggs Indicator Test was developed by Katharine Briggs and her daughter Isabel Myers who based it on Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types.
The test examines individuals in 4 categories:
- Extroversion vs. Introversion
- Sensing vs. Intuition
- Thinking vs. Feeling
- Judging vs. Perceiving
Despite being empathetic, loyal, and an organized worker, INFJs possess other characteristics which make them stand out from the rest.
Here are 12 signs that show you’re this type of personality:
- You’re a true introvert.
You’re sometimes mistaken for an extrovert because you appear quite outgoing and know how to blend in any social setting. But, you’re actually an introverted individual. You are happy with a small circle of friends who you know are good and worthy of your love and attention.
- You’re highly intuitive.
You can tell what kind of a person someone is within minutes of meeting them. You have the ability to “see” what’s going on in other people’s minds. By knowing how they feel about you, you save yourself from getting caught-up in drama and deception.
- You judge others by the way they make you feel.
You judge others by the way they treat you. When you feel that people are honest and kind to you, this enables you to make good and reasonable decisions regarding them. You always distance yourself from people who you feel are fraudulent and have hidden intentions.
- You have deep convictions about the world.
You have strong and unwavering beliefs about the world and know what you want to see in it. Changing things you don’t like is a goal for you. Your beliefs are almost impossible to change and are a big part of your personality.
