My personality type is INFJ (The Counselor), INFJ prefers to work independently and tend to feel more at ease when alone or in a small group. They also tend to be reflective and self-aware, and enjoy thinking about ideas. Although INFJs may have good social skills, they generally prefer to avoid the spotlight as well as small talk, and may prefer written communication over verbal. They’re also more likely to think before speaking and have good impulse control.
When approaching a new task, the INFJ prefers concrete goals and deadlines over flexibility and options, which may be perceived as road blocks. They also tend to collect as much information as possible and to focus on the big picture, rather than on details. Their tendency to focus on the big picture makes them good at spotting emerging trends, although they may also form connections that do not really exist. INFJs benefit from their tendency to plan and adhere to deadlines because they can be disorganized with their ideas, which may mean that they have difficulty communicating their ideas to others.
When faced with a decision, INFJs tend to consider how it will affect others, and are likely viewed by others as being caring and considerate. They also tend to be flexible in their thinking and recognize the complexity of issues, rather than seeing things as being “black or white”. INFJs put more emphasis on teamwork and getting along, and their supportive nature may mean that they put the needs of others before their own or are easily persuaded.
