On Why People Mistype as INFJ Personalities

Posted on

by Andy Davis. When participating in online INFJ social media communities, it’s sometimes apparent that there are many individuals who superficially identify themselves as being INFJ but, beyond acting out basic stereotype behaviours, they do not demonstrate any of the actual cognitive function processes that make INFJ unique.

On How INFJ End Relationships

Posted on

by Andy Davis. Every time you hurt or seriously disappoint an INFJ, they’ll withdraw slightly from intimacy. That’s a big deal to an INFJ – it means their trust, respect and confidence in the relationship’s future becomes inexorably diminished. You probably won’t notice that emotional separation occurring; as the INFJs auxiliary extroverted Feeling (Fe) function […]

ENTP or INTP?

Posted on

With only a superficial understanding of MBTI theory, the differences between two similar-seeming types may seem very simple. This stems from over-simplistic belief that the type 4-letter name designations indicate how the types function.

We have to answer test questions based upon what we’re most comfortable with. Not what we actually might have to, or choose to, do… Here’s my perception of it: I’m an INFJ. I used […]

INFJ and Intimacy Break-Down

Posted on

INFJ, or so I’ve read, are particularly focused on achieving intimacy. That’s certainly true for me – in terms of emotional, intellectual and sexual intimacy. One thing I’ll note (as an INFJ male) is that I do have some historical cases where I’ve LOST intimacy with a partner. Whilst my outward demeanor remained warm and […]
