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). I call people with INTJ or INFJ preferences Visionaries.

The IN_Js preference for taking a structured and comprehensive look at the “big picture” can be seen by both the words they have chosen and the way they present their illustration.

Notice how they use the idea of “big picture” both to describe their internal visioning and their reflective, systems-focused, approach. Also notice the words outside the internal thought circles, such as schedule, organized, methodical, structured. You can see that their focus in the outer world, using either Extraverted Thinking or Extraverted Feeling, is on deadlines, plans, and achievement.

I like how the illustration itself is organized and structured in a creative non-linear way, demonstrating the interplay of N and J preferences.

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.
