INFJs at their best

People with INFJ preferences often want to change the world for the better. They’re 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.

INFJs tend to come across as quiet and reserved. They’re often saving their energy for the people who mean the most to them, which may make those who receive this energy feel special.

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 don’t seem to care as much as they do about humanitarian issues or fighting injustice. This critical approach could work against them if it discourages others from getting involved.
