1. Most of them complain of never feeling like a part of a group. They are mostly lonely and cannot connect very well with most people. Well it shouldn’t be a surprise as there are only a few people like them. It is normal for them to feel as if they are different or like they don’t belong because of the rareness of their personality type.
2. They will not waste another second on something that they do not see worthwhile. In the same way, they do not have time for people who are not genuine. For them, quality ranks much higher than quantity in every aspect of life.
3. Other people find it extremely easy to be close to them and even to show them their vulnerable side. The reason is that INFJ Personality types are extremely great listeners and they make other people feel at ease around them. They are warm, kind and nice individuals and people often spill out their heart, soul AND secrets to them.
4. They are also highly empathetic in nature. This means that they can sense the emotions of others as if they were their own. This is why they are quick to forget and forgive if their friends have wronged them somehow. Empathy is for sure of their characteristics.

6. They like traveling and learning from experience. They are interested in other cultures and languages and are always ready for an adventure.
7. They sometimes believe they are extroverts and thus go all out and party. But in reality, they are introverts and thus they get very uncomfortable very soon in such social situations. They prefer smaller crowds rather than big ones.
8. They prefer spending time on their own because it gives them an opportunity to regain their energy. Solitude heals their soul.
9. They have huge ideas about changing the world. And they will not settle for the monotony of a 9 to 5 job if they feel it’s not worth it. They are also great team players!
