Description of INFJs

INFJ's are known as the "Counselor" or the "Confidant."

INFJ's are gifted with a greater clarity of perception of inner, unconscious processes than all but their INTJ cousins, making them the second most intuitive of the 16 types.

Being artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities.

INFJ's enjoy building deep relationships with a few close people.

INFJ's are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals.

They prefer to work quietly, behind the scenes.

INFJs tend to be devoted to what they believe in and seek work where their needs, values, and ideals can be deeply engaged.

Thus INFJ's are focused on an inner world rather than the external sensory world.

They are very creative, smart, and prefer to focus on fantasy more than reality.

Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types

They are introverted and reserved, enjoying deep 1 on 1 relationships rather than having an audience or crowd around them.

INFJs prefer careers where:
  • Management allows people to be self directed
  • The work itself is personally meaningful and has value
  • Decisions and actions at work are in sync with your personal values
  • The work offers plenty of opportunities to make decisions
  • You are able to maintain control over your projects
  • You can apply your natural ability to focus and concentrate, rather than multitasking
  • The environment, culture and pace allow you to consider things fully before having to respond
  • The work allows you to work at a careful steady pace
  • The work involves theory and speculation
  • The work allows you adequate private time to work alone and to concentrate
  • The work involves creativity, imagination and a creative approach to problem solving
  • The work involves looking beyond the present i.e. future possibilities, future products, future actions
  • The work is not limited to what exists today but involves "what may be" and "what could be"
  • The atmosphere allows you to be warm and caring and to build strong interpersonal relationships
  • The work allows you to utilize your natural ability to provide others with direction and supervision
  • The environment is more structured and disciplined, being on time and following procedure is considered important
