A Brief Introduction To The MBTI Cognitive Functions by Cat Sawyer

This is a guest post written by Cat Sawyer – I consider her one of the foremost experts in cognitive functions, as labeled by me. In this Introduction to Cognitive Functions, my aim is to give you a basic understanding of the eight Functions, how they are ordered inside a personality type and how they manifest in the behavioural traits. I won’t overload you with a breakdown of all the sixteen types. However, I will use a few, particularly the…

Decisions May Be Hard For INFJs Because They Have A Tendency To See 8 Sides To Everything

One of the main reasons my INTJ sister and I fight is because she doesn’t understand that I see the world in extreme shades of gray. Whereas for her the world is more a case of black and white, with a little bit of gray somewhere in there, sometimes. Decisions are easier for her, and not so much for me. In fact, this is one of the main reasons why I despised myself for the longest time. I used to think…

Why Is The INFJ I’m Dating Slowly Pulling Away From Me?

One of the magnificent things about having a YouTube channel about INFJs is many non-INFJs message me asking questions about their beloved INFJs and about a potential doorslam. This really makes me ecstatic. I know how hard it can be for an INFJ, one of the introverted Myers-Briggs personality types, to be in a relationship, especially a romantic one. So, I take these questions as an opportunity to help my fellow INFJs find long-lasting love.  Time after time, INTJs, INFPs,…

INFJs Need A Couple Of Hours Every Night To Detox, Process, And Let Go Of A Busy Day

Mood swings suck, don’t they?? I am visiting my family at the moment in Toronto, Canada. Even though, I absolutely adore them to death, I have realized that if I spend too much time with them, without a break, I start feeling an immense amount of rage, and resentment towards them. It’s wholly without reason, and I know it is related to the lack of alone time, and not related to them at all.  Nowadays, I am able to catch…

INFJs Have A Foot In Both Camps – That’s Why They Never Fit Anywhere Perfect

Something people always say about me is that fitting in is my middle name. I have friends in the nerdy tech circle, and I have friends in the hippie sage-burning circle. I have friends in the digital nomad circle, and I have friends in the spiritual community. And it’s not like I fit in perfectly into either group. It’s not like I am a square peg in a round hole, but I fit in just enough so that people in…

Why Do So Many INFJs Ignore Their Intuition, When It’s Truly One Important Superpower

If I had to tell people one thing about myself that I absolutely despise, it’s this – I hate that I ignore the signs and messages that my Introverted Intuition (Ni) sends me on a daily basis. Even when it has lined the messages with neon red LED lights and flashed them in front of my face, I still manage to disbelieve its importance, or veracity.  It’s not just me, though. Lots of INFJs message or email me on a…

INFJs Get Chatty Around Certain People And It Leaves Them Feeling Uncomfortable And Embarrassed

Recently, I shared a meme with my YouTube community which consists mostly of INFJs, but also of other types. It said something like, “INFJ – I don’t like how chatty I get when I feel at ease with someone.” A day later, I had 23 comments most of which were at least a paragraph long, with people describing how they felt after they had had one of these chatty sessions themselves. It was fascinating to me to witness this because…

INFJs Don’t Know How To Alleviate Their Anxiety Sometimes, So They End Up Organizing Life Instead

INFJs usually have no idea how they are feeling. What are feelings and how do they show up in the body? For a person with a poor mind-body connection, INFJs usually don’t know how they feel and end up emulating others around them who are feeling something. But this usually ends up in them picking up on the anxious and neurotic feelings of the people around them.  It’s a Catch 22. We don’t know how to feel so we open…

For The INFJ, It Was Never Ever About Being Right, But About Doing What’s Right

This is a big thing for an INFJ, so if you are interested in learning more about us, please pay attention. This will actually happen a lot in real life, where humans will inordinate amounts of time arguing with some other human online or offline, because they have this weird desire to be proven right.  As an INFJ, I look at most arguments and wonder why people are wasting so much time and energy arguing about something that doesn’t really…
