If you take the time to figure out which of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types you lean towards the most, it will give you clues to unlocking who you are and your preferences. It’s like having a basic compass that provides you a direction, leaving out each individual’s variations.
Of course, taking the actual MBTI is the best way to find out for sure what type you lean towards. But if you want to try to find out on your own, this might help you.
I divided this list into two separate parts, the main signs and the not-so-obvious signs. If you don’t identify with the main ones, you probably lean towards another personality type.
7 Main Signs That You Might Have an INFJ Personality Type…
INFJs tend to…
1 Believe everything is connected and are almost always looking to see how the pieces join together.
2 Naturally operate from intuition or inner guidance. When they try to disconnect from it, their whole lives go haywire.
3 Be deep thinkers and thrive on understanding complex ideas.
4 Desire emotional intimacy. They want to develop deep, authentic, one-on-one relationships.
5 Have an eerie ability to forecast the future—being able to foresee social trends or disasters before they happen.
6 Be wired with an “all or nothing” attitude. They are usually obsessed with things or they want nothing to do with them.
7 Function noticeably better when they have a cause, purpose, or point of focus.
