Illustrations of Type – INTJ and INFJ

Illustrations of Type – INTJ and 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 a group of people who have either INTJ or INFJ preferences. Both groups share a dominant function of Introverted Intuition (Ni).

They describe themselves as private, aloof, and self-contained.

Such descriptors emphasize an important concept about personality type. Since INTJs and INFJs tend to use their dominant function in the inner world, people can underestimate and misunderstand them.

For more on this concept, see my post Getting to Know Introverts.

If you enjoyed this illustration post, there are several other Illustrations of Type on the site from groups of INTJs and INFJs.

If you are interested in seeing how people with different personality type preferences complete this exercise, look at the other posts in the Illustrations Series.
