Personality Profile - INFJ

We were chatting personality profiles at work today. It seems after answering about 100 questions, I am according to Meyer Briggs what is known in the trade as an INFJ... which apparently is a rare thing.

The scarey thing is, looking at the points in every aspect... the assessment is pretty much bang on!

INFJ Strengths

  • Warm and affirming by nature
  • Dedicated to achieving the ultimate relationship
  • Sensitive and concerned for others' feelings
  • Usually have good communication skills, especially written
  • Take their commitments very seriously, and seek lifelong relationships
  • Have very high expectations for themselves and others (both a strength and weakness)
  • Good listeners
  • Are able to move on after a relationship has ended (once they're sure it's over)

INFJ Weaknesses

  • Tendency to hold back part of themselves
  • Not good with money or practical day-to-day life necessities
  • Extreme dislike of conflict and criticism
  • Have very high expectations for themselves and others (both a strength and weakness)
  • Have difficulty leaving a bad relationship
If you are interested in reading up more on this profile you can take a gander at these pages:

I'm also really inspired by the historical people who fit the character... they are excellent dudes!
