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 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.

Notice the Visionary’s focus on introspection. People who have these preferences often process conceptual information deeply, linking and integrating complex ideas and possibilities into a cohesive whole. They usually take an organized, well-planned approach to getting things done. At times, they report experiencing conflict between their desire to consider multiple ideas deeply and their drive to get something completed.

You may also enjoy looking at how other INTJ and other 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.
