    OK, now that we know what sucks about being an INFJ, I would like to know why would you in the first place be proud to be an INFJ. I'm pretty sure that we have some wonderful gifts as well and I want to share with you some of them.

    • My never-ending quest of knowing myself
    • Being able to be compassionate with others
    • anticipating other's needs
    • self-less attitude towards the world
    • thriving to be the best in what I do
    • Having a sense of purpose on what I want to do
    • Never conforming
    • Observe the world from different perspectives
    • Taking care of other's needs
    • creating connections and believing that peace can be achieved

    These are my own, but I'm curious to know what makes each INFJ unique apart from the four letters.What makes you YOU!

    You said basically everything I was going to say. :D

    • Intuition - to instinctively know and understand peoples needs and wants
    • Compassion - there isn't enough in the world
    • being a non-conformist
    • As much as it annoys me I do really appreciate my feeling side :)
    • doing whatever I can to make this world a little bit better place
    • I like being introverted and quiet
    • my imagination

    knowing that the INFJ type exists, that you're not actually defective or an isolated case of craze that you had almost been inclined to believe before you took the mbti. or maybe that is just me.

    I don't know if this is an INFJ thing or not, but I have a lot of "inside jokes" with myself. It's kind of weird, but I can make myself laugh so easily in certain situations but I'd never actually be able to tell anyone else why I was laughing. So I try to wait until someone tells a joke so I can laugh at whatever I was thinking about. Unless the joke actually was funny to me.

    Not just you. I have to visit this forum regularly just to remind myself that I'm not crazed.

    I love and hate everything about being an INFJ, for example, today I might have loved my Ni and hated my Fe, and tomorrow I'll just wish I was an extravert. But I too especially love my imagination!

    Living within the dream :)

    I've always liked feeling as if I had some sort of inner wisdom and greater purpose, along with everything already said.

    Being able to tap into a feeling of love for all beings, to fill up on that and feel totally at peace with the world.

    Similarly, an ability to phase out from reality. No matter what is going on around me, I can dissapear inside myself and feel totally calm.


    The ability to view myself from the outside , as I would any other person. When life gets to much, I can exit my body and watch the situation unfold without identifying with it. This helps especially in situations that would otherwise distress me, but in which I need to remain calm in order to best serve the person I'm interacting with.

    I think everyone has said it all very well. I especially appreciate the gift of intuition that comes with being infj.

    Knowing how people feel by just walking into a room and talking to them for 5 minutes. Being able to talk them through problems and help them realize a viable solution.

    I like the self entertainment aspect of it and the lack of boredom.

    I definitely think my constant striving for a better self is an asset. It drives me nutty, but I do think it allows me to grow.
