Illustrations of Type – INFJ

Illustrations of Type – INFJ

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningIn 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.

I like how this group conceptually organized their poster into 5 categories: self, others, family, work, and needs.

The poster has lots of information and is well organized; something you might expect from a group that tend to value depth of understanding.

They mention it is hard for them to leave work at work and that they have difficulty letting go to just play.

Do any other INFJs have these tendencies? What have you learned to do to invite play into your life?

One Response to “Illustrations of Type – INFJ”

  1. I’m not sure that I have trouble inviting play into my life. Any given day may be full of work, catching up, errands, etc., but in the long run I have plenty of fun. I try to go to the movies once a week and attend a lot of free (and some not so free) concerts and other events, especially those in which friends are performing. I also used to try and explore something new each week, such as a restaurant or shop. I do that less often now, but do try to keep the spirit of exploring my own neighborhood and hometown, and I keep up with local news so I can find fun things to do. I also regularly participate in a fun sport known as Volkssmarching and have several other hobbies. Sometimes fun does have to be scheduled in and things do get hectic at times, but in the long run I don’t see a lack of fun or play as being a problem for me.
