You’ve all heard about the Myer-Briggs personality test. And I am guessing that you all know the 16 possible combinations. Some of you have already found their match. But I don’t know if you’ve heard that there is one type specifically that is known as the rarest personality type.
Well, its acronym is INFJ and it stands for Introversion, iNtuitive, Feeling, Judging. This means that the people that have this personality prefer to spend their time on their own, to make decisions based on their emotions, to focus on ideas rather than well-known facts and to always be organized and calculated. In other words, these people are known as counselors.
So, if you don’t know which type you are and f you are interested in discovering it, make sure to take this test. But, if you want to know more about this type, here are 9 most important details about INFJ – the rarest personality type in the world:
1. INFJs CAN’T STAND LIARS
Considering how intuitive these people are and how well they know their own emotions, it is only natural that INFJs are people who value honesty. They have the power to sense lies and manipulation from afar. That is what helps them avoid toxic people and focus on their self-growth instead.
2. INFJs ARE INTROVERTS BUT THEY ARE OFTEN SEEN AS EXTROVERTS
Yes, they are introverts. They like spending most of their time alone. They enjoy the sound of silence. And they love going through their colorful mind.
But they are also often seen as extroverts. Why? Well, because regardless of these people’s introverted nature, their personality can easily adjust to any kind of situation. INFJs just know their way with people.
3. INFJs HAVE EMPATHIC SOULS
They can meet another person and immediately know what’s on their mind. Because they have a very open and perceptive soul. INJFs often feel other people’s emotional baggage and most of the times, deep down they know exactly what these people need. However, no matter how much they want to be helpful, sometimes the only thing they can do is observe.
4. INFJs PREFER QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
As people who rely on their emotions, they strongly believe that quality should always be over quantity. Whether it’s about a friendship, a job, a partner, INFJs always focus on the quality of their life above else. When something has no soul and doesn’t feel genuine enough, they immediately lose interest in it.
5. INFJs SEEK PERFECTION IN EVERYTHING
Everything these people do has to be close to perfection, otherwise, it is not worth it. So, whether it’s an important work assignment, a relationship or simply a usual daily task, they always give 100% of their soul to make it right. This, however, is double-edged knife because it forces them to work hard but at the same time brings them down when their work is criticized and unaccepted by others.
6. INFJs HAVE A FEW CLOSE FRIENDS
They value friendships but the most important thing about these people is the fact that they don’t have many friends. Their closest and most trusted confidants can be counted on one hand only. INFJs are very selective about who enters their life, so they are always surrounded by a few REAL friends.
7.INFJs ARE TRUSTWORTHY INDIVIDUALS
There is something about them that make everyone trust them as soon as they meet them. INJFs radiate with a certain warm, friendly energy that makes other people feel comfortable around them. Don’t be surprised when a total strangers stars opening their soul to an INFJ person.
8. INFJs PREFER TO WORK ON THEIR OWN
Or in small groups. Having in mind that the first letter of the acronym INFJ stands for introversion, it is clear that these people are most productive and creative when they aren’t under pressure. This means that working alone or in a smaller group of people who they completely trust can be a big factor in getting the job done most effectively.
9. INFJs LOVE TO HELP OTHERS
I am not sure what is it about them, but these people are easily drawn to insecure and lost individuals who desperately need help. I’d say it is their purely emotional nature combined with their empathic heart that is always open for others. They just see the things that we sometimes cannot. They see the good in every human being and feel the need to help these lost souls reach their potential.
