We INFJs are pretty awesome. So awesome, in fact, that only 1-3% of the U.S. population are INFJ. The Force is strong in us. Do you know someone who might be an INFJ? What is it like to work or live with them? Are you an INJF? What do you want others to know about you? Because it is so rare to meet an INFJ, I found a few examples of some famous – and some fictional – INFJs. See which celebrity, Star Trek captain or Game of Thrones character matches your personality type.
The basic idea of telling introverts to act more like extroverts is degrading and unproductive. Introversion and extroversion are naturally occurring personality traits that all of us have. Most people are more extroverted, but that does not make introverts bad or wrong. People are happiest when they have confidence in who they are and are free to be themselves. We should encourage and support people to play to their strengths, not chastise them for not acting like someone else.
If you choose a career path based only on what you know how to do (your skills), you are less likely to enjoy the job and more likely to get burned out. Find a job that you are good at and that uses your skills is important. However, wouldn’t you also like to find a job that you enjoy and that matches your personality? Take a few minutes to remind yourself of your likes and dislikes. Then look for career options that fit what interests you.
Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing, You get to choose. ~Dr. Wayne Dyer
