INFJ:PPP

Anonymous said: Hello! I am still a bit confused whether I am a J or a P because 50/50 of the tests shows that I am an INFJ/P. Is there an easy way to find out which one I really am in?

This is a huge problem that’s caused by online tests. There’s a significant difference between INFJs and INFPs (and their cognitive functions), and online tests just don’t have the ability to differentiate. I talked about that topic here.

Yes. You can find out more about that here and here.

Thank you for this lovely message, I’m really glad that you have found out more about yourself and don’t feel as confused anymore.

Anonymous said: About the online tests not being accurate, would you reckon thats completely true? I took about 5 different ones and 4 out of 5 I was INFJ, and I relate so much to the INFJ posts and INFJ characters in books/shows/movies etc etc. So I think their might be some truth to them, perhaps not alot, but some at least

I think that online tests are not accurate because they are purely logarithms that don’t take other things into account. They can be a base on which to build upon and learn more details, and eventually decide whether you are that type or maybe some other. However if you feel like your test result has been accurate, then I’m happy for you!

spark--the--revolution said: Hi, I have a question regarding INFJ types. For years every test I take gives me INFJ, however I am just discovering that there are numerical types of this personality. Is there a more specific test somewhere to find out which one I am? Thanks!

Hmmm to be quite honest I don’t know anything about numerical types. Are you thinking of the enneagram maybe? Any followers know anything about this?

I think many people can relate to feeling so extremely frustrated with everything that they just want to let it out!

Anonymous said: What careers are best suited for an INFJ because I have been thinking about my future a lot recently since I'm in high school.

Check out previous posts about careers for INFJs.

In general I think it’s most important that you find something you care about for a profession. Don’t try to do something you’re not committed to just for the money because you might end up very unhappy with your choice.

The most popular careers for INFJs are either related to caring (medicine, counseling, etc.) or the arts (writing, visual arts, music etc.). I’m sure you’ll find something you are passionate about and interested in. Use the time you have in high school (and college or university) to explore as many new things as you can!

Anonymous said: I am a 14 year old and I think I am most likely an INFJ. Once I started reading about it I was intrigued and could relate to it more than I've ever related to anything before. I realised that there are other people who think about things the way I do. What was it like being an INFJ growing up ?

I don’t want to rain on your parade, but don’t rush to a type while you’re still so young. Take your time, and once you’ve settled into your adult life re-evaluate your type.

Growing up as an INFJ however can often be difficult. During teenage years, extraversion and spontanity are favoured. The INFJ will often feel left out or like they don’t belong. But don’t let that bring your down… Once you are in a position to choose the people you spend time with you will find many other introverts and INFJs who will understand you and your needs better.
