Have you ever felt out of place, like you’re not quite like everyone else? Or perhaps you’ve been described as an ‘old soul’?
Maybe it’s because you’re an INFJ, the world’s most unique personality type.
I can relate to this, because I am an INFJ.
Are you curious if you might be one too?
Well, let’s dive in. Here are seven signs that might just confirm your suspicions.
1) You’re deeply intuitive
A defining characteristic of an INFJ is their deep sense of intuition. This is more than just having a gut feeling about something, it’s an intrinsic part of how you perceive and interact with the world.
This heightened intuition often leads to a profound understanding of people and situations. You’re able to pick up on subtext that others might miss and can often predict outcomes based on subtle cues.
Being intuitive isn’t always easy though. It can lead to a sense of feeling overwhelmed or out of sync with the world around you. After all, not everyone sees the world through such a discerning lens.
But it’s this very trait that makes INFJs unique. Your intuition is a gift, one that allows you to connect deeply with others and navigate the world with empathy and understanding.
Embracing this aspect of your personality means learning to trust your instincts and using your intuition as a guide in your life. It’s about realizing that your unique perspective is a strength, not a weakness.
2) You value deep, meaningful connections
As an INFJ, you’re not interested in surface-level interactions. Small talk feels like a chore to you. Instead, you crave deep and meaningful connections.
This doesn’t mean you’re antisocial or aloof. In fact, INFJs are known for their empathy and ability to understand others on a profound level. It’s just that you prefer quality over quantity when it comes to relationships.
You’re not one to have a large circle of acquaintances. You’d rather have a handful of close friends with whom you can share your thoughts, ideas, and dreams.
This longing for depth in relationships can sometimes lead to feelings of loneliness or frustration when those around you don’t seem to reciprocate the same level of intensity or authenticity.
But remember, it’s this depth of understanding and connection that makes you an INFJ. It’s what allows you to touch people’s lives in meaningful ways.
So, embrace your need for deep connections. They are the threads that weave the fabric of your unique INFJ personality.
3) You find yourself in the role of a counselor
As an INFJ, I often find myself playing the role of a counselor. It’s like I have an invisible sign hanging around my neck that says, ‘tell me your problems’.
I remember one time at a party, I found myself in a deep conversation with a stranger about their relationship struggles. While others were dancing and laughing, I was on a makeshift therapy session, and you know what? I loved it.
That’s because as an INFJ, I thrive on helping others navigate their feelings and offer insights that might help them see their situation in a new light.
Being an INFJ means being attuned to the emotions of those around you. It means understanding people on a level that goes beyond surface interactions. It’s about empathy, compassion and genuine concern for the wellbeing of others.
Yes, sometimes it can be draining, especially when you absorb other people’s emotions as your own. But it’s also incredibly rewarding. There’s no greater satisfaction than knowing you’ve made a difference in someone’s life.
So if you find yourself naturally falling into the role of a counselor, remember it’s not just because you’re good at listening. It’s because you’re an INFJ, and helping others is part of your DNA.
4) You’re a planner
As an INFJ, you’re a natural planner. You thrive on order and structure. Spontaneity? Not so much.
Whether it’s planning your work week, organizing a vacation, or simply deciding on the best route to get to a new location, you love to have a clear plan in place.
This desire for planning stems from your intuitive nature. It’s your way of anticipating possible scenarios and preparing for them in advance.
But being a planner isn’t just about practicality. It’s also about your deep-seated need for peace and harmony. You find comfort in knowing what to expect, reducing uncertainty and potential stress.
There’s a downside though. Your penchant for planning can sometimes come across as being controlling or inflexible to others. But remember, it’s not about controlling every aspect of life, it’s about reducing anxiety and creating a smoother path forward.
So if you’re always the one with the plan, take it as another sign that you might just be an INFJ – the world’s most unique personality type.
5) You’re drawn to the abstract
As an INFJ, you have a natural affinity for the abstract. Theories, concepts, big ideas – these are your playground. You’re not just content with what is; you’re intrigued by what could be.
This is linked to the ‘N’ in INFJ, which stands for ‘Intuitive’. You see, among the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types, only a quarter are intuitive types. That means three-quarters of the population are more focused on concrete, tangible information.
But not you. You’re more interested in exploring ideas and possibilities. You often find yourself lost in thought, contemplating the future or mulling over a theory.
This propensity towards abstract thought can sometimes make you feel out of sync with others. But it’s also what allows you to think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions.
So if you find yourself more at home in the world of concepts than concrete facts, take it as a sign of your unique INFJ personality.
6) You feel things deeply
The intensity with which I feel things has always set me apart. A poignant movie scene, a heartfelt conversation, even the beauty of a sunset – they all have the power to move me profoundly.
As an INFJ, I experience emotions on a deep, intense level. It’s like my heart is tuned to a frequency that picks up on the subtlest of emotional signals. This sensitivity extends to others’ emotions too. When someone around me is hurting, I feel their pain as if it’s my own.
This emotional depth is both a blessing and a curse. It allows me to empathize with others and form deep connections, but it can also leave me feeling drained and vulnerable.
But over time, I’ve learnt to see this emotional intensity not as a weakness but as an integral part of who I am. It’s what makes me an INFJ – one of the most unique personality types in the world.
So if you too find yourself moved by the seemingly mundane or feel emotions more intensely than others, it might just be because you’re an INFJ like me.
7) You’re driven by a sense of purpose
The most defining trait of an INFJ is a strong sense of purpose. You’re not someone who lives life on autopilot. You need to feel that what you’re doing has meaning, that it aligns with your values and contributes to a greater cause.
Whether it’s your career, personal projects, or relationships, everything you engage in must hold some significance to you. You’re not interested in superficial pursuits or societal norms if they don’t resonate with your inner compass.
This unwavering commitment to purpose can sometimes lead to disappointment or frustration when reality doesn’t match your ideals. But remember, it’s this very trait that makes you an INFJ.
Your purpose is not just about finding your place in the world. It’s about making the world a better place in your own unique way. And that’s what makes you an INFJ – the world’s most unique personality type.
Embracing your INFJ nature
If you find yourself nodding along to these signs, chances are you’re part of the rare breed of individuals known as INFJs.
But let me assure you, being an INFJ is not a limitation. It’s a unique strength.
It’s about recognizing these traits within yourself and embracing them. It’s about understanding that your deep intuition, emotional intensity, and drive for purpose are not oddities. They are the very essence of who you are.
Start by acknowledging these signs in your daily life. Notice your tendency to contemplate the abstract, or your need for deep connections. Pay attention to your instinctive role as a counselor or the comfort you find in planning.
This self-awareness is the first step towards embracing your INFJ traits.
Remember – being an INFJ is not about fitting into a box. It’s about understanding that the box was never meant for you. You’re meant to create your own path, guided by your unique perspective and values.
Take pride in being an INFJ. You’re part of the world’s most unique personality type, after all.
And with this uniqueness comes a responsibility – to stay true to yourself, to honor your needs and feelings, and to use your intuitive understanding to make a positive impact.
Being an INFJ is a journey of self-discovery and acceptance. It might not always be easy, but it’s an incredibly rewarding journey that allows you to live authentically and deeply.
So embrace your INFJ nature. Celebrate it. Because being an INFJ isn’t just about being different. It’s about being uniquely you.
