INFJs at their best

INFJs want to change the world for the better, and they often have careers or hobbies that help them to do so. These quiet, reserved people save their energy for those who mean most to them, which makes others feel special.

INFJs are idealists. They want to make things better for those who really need it, and they enjoy helping others to grow and become better versions of themselves. They’re also independent and often know exactly what they want to do next without needing to ask for advice or guidance.

Potential development areas for INFJs

Because they’re so deep and sensitive, it’s easy for INFJs to get their feelings hurt. Their idealism also makes them critical of others who seem to not care as much about humanitarian issues or fighting injustices. This could work against them if it discourages others from getting involved.

If INFJs learned not to take things so personally, it would help them avoid having their feelings hurt. They could then inspire others with their quiet activism.

Types and Stress

INFJs and stress

Because of their quiet, reserved nature, things like loud noises or conflicting personalities will cause stress for the INFJ. They dislike last-minute changes and don’t like it when people repeat mistakes over and over. These things seem thoughtless and short-sighted.

At work, INFJs find it difficult to keep their personal feelings out of their interactions. They’ll likely become stressed out by feeling underappreciated, dismissed, or ignored.

If you’re an INFJ personality type, you can try a few key things to balance these feelings of stress.
