The Myer-Briggs personality spectrum characterizes people into 16 different personality types. Every single one of them is different from one another and they all have their own strengths and weaknesses. Along with that, some of them are extremely common, whereas others are very hard to find.
One of the least common of them all is the INFJ, which accounts for only 2% of the population. If you think that you might be one of them, here are 12 signs that you are an INFJ, the rarest personality type.
1. You’re an Introvert, But People Don’t See It
There’s no denying it, you are a true introvert, However, the people around you don’t see it that way. Since you have the ability to blend in with any social setting, most of the people around you see you as an extrovert.
2. You Keep A Small Circle
Friendship is important to you, but not just any friendship. You’re extremely selective about who you keep around you. Because of that, you have a small circle of some really close friends.

People with this personality type are good with languages as well as with creative activities. This can manifest itself in ways such as being a good public speaker, being able to learn many different foreign languages, or being talented at writing.
