Key Takeaways For INFJs

  • Solitude. INFJs love solitude. Having a day alone, thinking, dreaming, and planning can be a wonderful thing for us. As Einstein said, “I lived in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in maturity.”
  • Wisdom. INFJs are wise. We don’t show off and we don’t ask for attention. But we often get it through our deep insights. Perhaps it’s because we spent so much time alone. As Edison said, “The best thinking has been done in solitude.”
  • Introspection. As INFJs, we have a whole world inside of us and we are idealists. We have a good idea of who we are and what we want. But we must not forget to be patient with others. As Marcus Aurelius said, “Be tolerant with others and strict with yourself.”
  • Wonderful INFJs. Don’t like who you are as an INFJ? Think of all the wonderful INFJs in the history of the world: Jesus, Buddha, Marcus Aurelius, Leo Tolstoy, Mother Teresa, Carl Jung, Plato, Gandhi, etc. INFJs are awesome. And so do you.
  • Self-care. As an INFJ, you want to make the world a better place (that’s great!). But you must never forget this: a healthy and well-rested you will better improve the world. Make self-care a priority.
