Illustrations of Type – INT/FJ

Illustrations of Type – INT/FJ

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction – “Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from a combined group of participants with INTJ or INFJ personality type preferences. I put people who have these preferences together because they share a dominant function of Introverted iNtuition (Ni).

People who have these preferences often communicate their abstract thoughts with analogies and metaphors. Notice how their words are complimented by the pictorial metaphors – telescope not magnifying glass, tip of the iceberg, 2030 calendar, and a whole-world view.

Other aspects of the INJ pattern are also included in the illustration, such as thought before action, structure and planning, and their interest in insights and ideas.

You may also enjoy looking at how other INTJ or INFJ groups have completed this illustration of type exercise.

If you are interested in seeing how people with different type preferences complete this exercise, check out the Illustrations of Type series.
