Here is the item that I want you to know about me.  It is the most important part of my personality actually and the aspect of my being that causes me the greatest frustration.  I feel like Casandra way too often.  I'm sure she was an INFJ. She just had to be.

Enjoy the rest of the list and you might want to stop back and share which of the ten items works for you. And if you are partner, child, parent to an INFJ, you may wish to share which item is the one that causes you the most joy or frustration in your partner, child, friend, or parent. :)

"Our intuition is real"


INFJs are known for being the most intuitive personality type. We "just know" a lot of information that we can never fully explain. Many sensing types and a few intuitive types cannot fully grasp our level of intuition and easily discredit our knowledge. Without any explanation as to why, we can feel the feelings of everyone around us as deeply as though they were our own.

As An Anonymous INFJ states: "In my experience, the most misunderstood part of an INFJ is how we feel everything those around us feel. We do not sympathize. We do not empathize. We literally feel exactly what you feel. Even if you are trying to hide it or don't express your feelings, somehow we still know."

Along with our open-mindedness and compassion, our ability to intuitively feel and sense things around us is a large part of why we can help others so easily. We just know what is best for those around us even if we cannot articulate why.

If you know an INFJ or want to be closer to an INFJ, believing in our intuition is the best thing you can do because it is the biggest part of who we are."
