INFJ Personality Type (Perspectives/Harmony)


Published on

Of all types, the INFJ (Perspectives/Harmony in the Personality Hacker system) is the most sensitive to other people. Their ability to shift perspectives combined with their natural talent for understanding complex human emotions gives them almost ESP-like powers. Though it’s extremely rare for them to admit it, almost all people of this type suffer from what they call the ‘assault of others’ emotions – picking up and taking on emotions not theirs, sometimes coming from total strangers. When at their best they are extraordinarily good counselors and therapists. They use this psychic-like ability in a positive way to meet others needs, thereby avoiding being ‘used’ as an emotional conduit. This type is often highly rigorous with themselves before they will deem themselves as competent. They have high standards, and when mobilized and active are a force to be reckoned with.

Copyright © 2015 Personality Hacker LLC INFJ Fast Personal Growth Harmony (Extraverted Feeling) - a process which focuses on unspoken social contracts - helps an INFJ to establish and maintain healthy boundaries. It also reminds them they’re not exclusively on the receiving end of approval/disapproval. They’re allowed to disapprove of others. Not as a knee-jerk When getting everyone’s needs met, remember you’re part of ‘everyone’. Your happiness depends upon you setting boundaries. reaction from a place of coldness, but as an honest response to unacceptable behaviors or assaulting emotions.
  4. 4. Copyright © 2015 Personality Hacker LLC INFJ Defensive Strategy Tertiary (10 Year Old) : Introverted Thinking “Accuracy” Accuracy (Introverted Thinking) can become a favorite tool for keeping people at arm’s length, often through criticism. Accuracy is usually about rooting out biases and inconsistencies of logic. But when you’re using it defensively it won’t be about fault finding in a person’s logic, it will be about fault finding in the person themselves. You’re much more at peace and happy when you’re focused on positive, connective relationships. If your 10 year old gets into the mix it will encourage you to withdraw from creating intimate and satisfying bonds. In an effort to protect yourself from being vulnerable, you deny yourself the opportunity to be truly connected and understood. Focus more on creating healthy boundaries around people’s energy rather than strategies to synthesize invulnerability.

Harmony requires the strength to wade through a world of people in pain looking for someone to act as an emotional dialysis machine. You have to set up healthy boundaries in order for you to get your needs met. It’s the only way for you to show up at your best and not in an ungenerous, undernourished state. Set up your conditions to access this mental process as much as possible. When you come across someone with unmet needs, put yourself in their shoes to determine what that need may be. If you cannot identify it, ask them what it could be in a loving way. They may not know themselves, so offer to talk about it until the need is identified. Give plenty of genuine affirmation, but avoid praise you do not mean. Offer honest support, and be okay if the timing isn’t right for them just yet.
