Illustrations of Type – INFJ

Illustrations of Type – INFJ

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 an INFJ group. The INFJ groups tend to provide abstract depictions that may appear cryptic to people of other personality types. Notice how there is a welcome mat at the door of the INFJ home, yet the door is closed. There is a lot going on at the top of the poster, likely a representation of broad, abstract ideas and connections. The INFJs themselves are not visible.

This is the second INFJ poster in the Illustrations of Type series.

You may also want to look at the first INFJ illustration. Here the INFJ group drew the head of a person to represent them.

  1. Donna, thanks for sharing this! I identify with the INFJ preference as well and I think the group’s balance of “welcome” and lots of color with a closed door is a neat way to portray this personality type.

  2. Haha, as an INFJ, I “get” this picture. Especially the arrows pointing off into all directions. 🙂

    A perfect picture for INFJs! I can definitely relate to this 🙂

    I often feel like a closed door to the outside world too, even though I am part of it and watchful of it.

    @Allie – I identify with the arrows pointing in many directions as well!

    Well, of course the door is closed…we’re not going to just hang it all out there for everyone & anyone to see (plus the bugs get in!). But if you knock & are patient, you’re very welcome to come on in. : )

    I LOVE this! I totally get it and can’t stop smiling.
