INFJs and Decision Making

INFJs and Decision Making

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningWe all have different ways of solving problems and making decisions. People with INFJ preferences have their own distinct, strengths and challenges.



• Take a thoughtful, collaborative approach to problem solving and decision making

• See and integrate many diverse possibilities and options for improving situations in the future

• Look for common ground and seek creative ways to respect diversity and meet peoples’ needs

• Want to do comprehensive research into the implications and consequences of decisions; tuned into how decisions may affect the people involved

• Once a decision is made, create a structured implementation plan that capitalizes on the strengths of the people involved



• Want to consider and explore problems and decisions thoroughly and may find it difficult to make quick decisions

• May disengage when decision-making or problem solving processes become overly logical or focused only on short term solutions

• Tend to think a problem or decision through internally and may not share all their exploratory data and ideas with others


• INFJs may overly complicate a decision and think about it in a more complex way than others would prefer

• Wanting to explore multiple ideas and yet also wanting to come to a decision may create an unpleasant internal tension for INFJs

• The INFJs sense of what should be done to value and respect the people involved in a decision can sometimes come across to others as moralistic or judgmental
