Their intellect and keen sense of understanding makes them ideal inventors. The level of logic the INTPs have at their disposal is unparalleled. Though often they appear to daydream, the fact is that they are wondering. INTPs monitor and search the realm of ideas more than any other personality. For an INTP personality, nothing is impossible. it’s only a matter of time. When focused on a task, nothing can break their concentration and desire to explore. I had the honor of meeting one INTP in my life. He is a bio-genetics researcher, and one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. The INTP personality knowledge quest “Everything can be explained.” This was the sentence my INTP acquaintance repeated numerous times. For INTPs, no stone will be left unturned when their mind gets excited and starts analyzing. Often you will notice that an INTP personality seems confused, maybe even lost. The reality is quite different. Their cognitive process of thinking is so complex, that it can be compared to the Spock character from Star Trek. Guided by logic, INTPs are not led by emotions. But that doesn’t mean that they don’t have them. They simply seek a logical solution that can help and be meaningful. Sometimes referred to as “cold”, INTPs say the truth that many don’t want to hear. An INTP’s mind is their guide and biggest support Far from being indifferent, the INTP personality...

ISFP Personality Type: The Sensual Artist

ISFP Personality Type: The Sensual Artist

The ISFP personality type, which makes up about 9% of the population, relates to the world through the senses.  Their sensory approach to life drives their hobbies, career choices and relationships. But not in the way you might think. The present moment is an ISFP’s happy place. Like true zen masters, ISFPs have been living in the Now since long before Eckhart Tolle made it cool. Though they may seem carefree and even self-indulgent at first glance, the ISFP personality type takes life very seriously. All of their exploits are driven by their deeper values. Their core beliefs are the winds that direct the sails of their decisions. Unlike the more logical types, such as the ISTJ and INTJ, the ISFP is not interested in planning a secure future. Their main goal in life is to build identity in the here and now. They are creating a collage of experiences that align with their values. For the ISFP personality type, the beauty is in the process rather than the final product. And if there is one thing ISFPs know about, it’s beauty.

INFP Personality Type: Convention is My Poison

INFP Personality Type: Convention is My Poison

I’m an INFP personality type. Conventional paths in life don’t satisfy me. Never have. It feels like my entire life has been a mission to find one thing or another. First, I had to discover who I was (an introverted idealist with a powerful creative streak). Next, I wanted to know where I fit in on planet earth (nowhere and everywhere). Finally, I set my sights on finding my purpose. This one is still in progress, but it mostly consists of connecting the dots and writing it all down. The INFP personality type in the wild You might have noticed me “in the wild”. You probably mistook me for a shy wallflower. Little did you know that beneath my stoic exterior there is fire. Like most INFPs, I’m passionate about my principles. My heart burns with a desire to discover, change, and grow. Here are some famous INFPs you might have heard of: Famous INFPs Audrey Hepburn Princess Diana Helen Keller C.S. Lewis J.R.R. Tolkien J.K. Rowling Bjork John Kerry Cameron Crowe John F. Kennedy Jr. Lisa Kudrow George Lucas Beck Isabel Briggs Myers As an INFP personality type, I’m open-minded and open-hearted. I always seek to understand without judgment; yet I’m rarely understood. Comprising only 4% of the population, I’m an enigma to most. That’s why I try my best to offer others the unconditional acceptance I rarely encounter. Unless you violate one of my core principles, I will accept you for who you are – no matter how odd a human you might be. In fact, I’m drawn to unconventional people because they satisfy my intense curiosity....
How To Be An INFJ

How To Be An INFJ

The INFJ personality is the rarest Myers-Briggs type. These unique butterflies comprise only 1% of the world’s population. Even to Carl Jung, who is widely considered to be the founder of the personality examination, INFJs are the “mysterious ones”. Few understand the complex beauty of an INFJ mind. Many are intrigued by its deep understanding, and intuition. It is extremely rare to meet an INFJ personality in person. Everyone, including myself, will confirm that this is a special moment. You are not just meeting anyone, you are meeting a rare gem. Rare, but extremely valuable Even though I am an INFJ myself, I have never met one in person. However, I am lucky that several of my closest friends are INFJs. We haven’t met in real life yet, but having a virtual INFJ friend can also be wonderful! Speaking through Skype, my INFJ friend and I admitted that we are “scared” of how we will react when we first meet. The meeting of two INFJs is the equivalent of winning a lottery two times in a row. Many INFJs I speak with on a daily basis have the same problem. Because we are people oriented, we act like a small colony of meerkats when we find each other. We cherish and protect one another. Quality over quantity best describes an INFJ meeting. ☺ What’s important to know about the INFJ personality? What’s crucial to understand about INFJs is that we know we are rare. We know that the majority of people don’t understand us. This is why we value our own company more than anything. However, we care deeply...
3 Reasons INFJs Are Amazing Conversationalists

3 Reasons INFJs Are Amazing Conversationalists

INFJs are often mistaken for being “cold.” It can be frustrating, because that’s not how we feel at all! INFJs are incredibly emotional. And in fact we love being with people. We just get lost in our thoughts. INFJs are constantly analyzing. Even during casual conversations we want to move deeper. That’s why we hate things like shallow small talk. While we may seem cold on the outside, we’re filled with warm, gooey chocolate goodness on the inside And despite (or perhaps because of) these challenges, INFJs make excellent conversationalists. Here are some INFJs you probably wouldn’t mind chatting up: – Plato – Carl Gustav Jung – Mahatma Gandhi – Thomas Jefferson – Al Pacino – Edward Norton – Cate Blanchett – Michelle Pfeiffer Not too shabby! Let’s take a closer look at what makes INFJs such great conversationalists. 1. We know how you feel (literally) First, INFJs have an uncanny ability to read people. We get “feelings” about things. And though we usually can’t fully explain why, we’re usually right. Socially, this translates to our ability to read emotions and body language effortlessly. We see right past facades and into the center of someone’s motives and true feelings. For example, someone may be smiling, but without even trying we intuitively know that they’re depressed. As a result, we often feel what others are feeling — literally. We are what’s called “empaths.” This is more than having empathy, or simply understanding what someone is going through. An empath literally feels what someone else is feeling. Even if they don’t understand or relate. And these feelings go beyond emotions. Some...
