INFJs Are Magnets For Toxic People, And It’s Worse Because We Can Be Major People Pleasers

I read somewhere that INFJs are people pleasers who hate people, and that description could not be more apt. At least for me.  I love people, but hate humanity. I also have had a weird childhood, where I felt unworthy of love over and over again, resulting in me doing anything and everything to prove my worthiness to the people around me. This included being an extreme people pleaser, who would do anything to get a smile or a note…

INFJs Wear The Label Of Counselor Quite Seriously – We Don’t Take Other People’s Needs Lightly, But That Ends Up Hurting Us Sometimes

The label of a counselor is a heavy one to carry. Just because INFJs are supposedly counselors, it doesn’t mean that we are counselors 24/7, or that we are on the job 24/7. Unfortunately, that’s what people assume about us, and that means that we spend a lot of our time being counselors when we are just too exhausted for it or just not up for it for whatever reason. Or if we have learned how to say no, we…

Why Do INFJs Hate Being Touched By Strangers? – It’s All About Contamination In My Opinion

I’m originally from India. Although I was 5 months old when my parents moved us first to the Middle East, and then to Canada. I’m grateful as an INFJ that my parents did move us, because Indians have really no concept of personal space. Which means that whenever I go back to visit my relatives, even though I love them so much, I always feel grateful to come back to the solitude and vast personal space etiquette of Canada. Conclusion: Energy…

4 Powerful Ways You Can Build Your Introverted Intuition, INFJs – It’s Your Superpower, Use It Well

One of the reasons I believe INFJs have a hard time fully coming into themselves, and becoming the best version of themselves, is because they are unable to fully trust and connect with one of their major superpowers, their Introverted Intuition (Ni). The lesson here – Build Your Intuition! It isn’t easy, I agree. I am an INFJ and it took me, I would say, around 30 years to really truly appreciate and believe in the information that my intuition was…

Introverts Overanalyze Situations Because We Are Afraid Of Not Being Prepared For All Eventualities

One of the reasons introverts spend so much time by themselves, and in their heads, is because they are spending a lot of their time in overanalyze mode, and overthinking. We do this, not necessarily because it’s enjoyable in any shape or form. It’s not as if we like to spend time suffering in our mental prisons. It’s because we are scared of what will happen if we are not prepared for all the freaking eventualities that could possibly come…

My Extroverted Friends Know That I Am An Introvert And What That Entails

I used to be ashamed of being an introvert for such a long time. I guess, that was all necessary, in order to grow into the person I have become now, who gives zero apologies for who I am, and what I want.  But when I was younger, I used to assume that my introverted nature was something to hide – like a dirty disease that everyone would point their finger at, and laugh. I assumed that I had to…

When We Think We Aren’t Good Enough As Introverts, We Deny A Major Part Of Our Power

Can you think of your introversion as one of your superpowers? Say it with me – I have introvert power. In a world where extroverts are in the majority, introverts are generally treated like the black sheep of the family or the dreaded second cousin who stinks and no one wants to hang out with.  All activities, events, jobs, schools, and societal rules are geared towards extroverts. Making us as introverts feel like we are just a burden, and an…

INFJs Let Their Perfectionist Nature Hold Them Back From Living Complete Lives

I am an INFJ, and I know that I have an elephant in my room. I don’t like talking about it with others, of course, but more than that, I don’t like talking about it with myself. In fact, I make up stories to hide this elephant, every time it comes up in everyday situations. I hate making mistakes. I am an idealistic perfectionist, which means that unless conditions are absolutely perfect, I do not make a single move in…

Introverts May Appear Closer To Extroverts At Certain Times

One of the main things that irked me about being an introvert for the longest time was that if I displayed even a smidgeon of extrovertedness, everyone started looking at me like I had grown two heads.  But more than that, when I started off with new acquaintances, being extroverted, when I went back to being an introvert, I started receiving all of this flak about deceiving people.  I didn’t make you believe anything – I am just being myself,…
