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.

People who prefer INFJ use Introverted Intuition (Ni) as their favorite, or in type language, dominant function. Many of the words and phrases listed here describe this process – processor or chewer, reflector, and seeing patterns. When you use introverted intuition, you quietly and deeply process and integrate ideas and information. As the group describes, sometimes it is difficult for them to easily express their complex and multifaceted thoughts.

Their other preferences are also expressed within the list. Their Feeling function shows up in their deep listening and empathy and their preference for Judging is demonstrated by their words organized and decisive.

People who prefer Intuition often enjoy using metaphors and stories to express their thoughts.
