9 Paradoxes All INFJ Experience as The Rarest Personality Type in The World

September 23, 2019

9 paradoxes of being an INFJ as the rarest
personality type Once you hear the word the rarest personality
type, your mind should have selected the INFJ. The reason is simply because it is truly the
rarest personality type that makes up 1 – 2 percent of population. Secondly, it is the personality that is frequently
talked about, and it is just because of uniqueness of an INFJ as personality type among other
16. Today, we have another interesting aspect
that makes an INFJ even more unique, and it is the paradoxes that make an INFJ. Here is some of them. #1 – Extroverted introvert Looking at the I in INFJ, you should tell
that INFJ is basically introverted people. However, it is not completely true because
INFJs usually hang around with people intensely. You may be wondering why it is possible, and
it is because the INFJs are desperate to find new people to talk to. They like to have meaningful conversation,
and it only can be achieved by talking to others. #2 – Calmly emotional Just like other type of introvert, INFJs can
understand and even absorb other people’s emotion and feeling. This enables them to control their emotion
because they know that their burden is not that problematic compared to others. However, at the same time, INFJs also feel
the wave of emotion that they cannot control. It is mainly because external trigger that
makes them angry or sad. That is why INFJs have paradox in their emotion. #3 – Logical and creative They actually can go hand in hand somehow. However, we all know that creative and logic
are a separated genres that cannot be combined that easily. INFJs, however, make the most of the two because
they make them happier and excited at the same time. Thus, they like to write or create something
artistic, but they also want to have careers in logical fields. #4 – Pessimistic optimists There is a simple condition that sum up the
INFJ. If they see the world, they become pessimists. When they see people, they see opportunity. This is because INFJs frequently see lies,
hatred, and anxiety passed around every time INFJs observe people in public. However, at the same time, they also see individuals
who thrive to fix the world, giving it a hope. #5 – Inconsistent communicator INFJs are actually great writer and speaker. However, you know that there are times when
INFJs stutter when they express their ideas. Yes, they experience this kind of thing especially
when they talk in public without preparation. They can be excellent speaker only if they
have written their ideas on their head or on their paper. #6 – Fighting for others Even though INFJs are willing to join for
a cause, they actually do not strive for themselves. Though they can help others from being bullied,
they cannot manage to help themselves when they are in such position. This paradox is the most dangerous for INFJs
because they can get lost in their struggle. #7 – Perfectionist but not perfect INFJs set high standard of everything they
are trying to do. Their projects are always designed to be perfect. Unfortunately, INFJs tend to miss small details
that make the perfection impossible or at least difficult to be realized. #8 – Dreaming doer INFJs are known for their great abstract ideas. They want to create the world as better place
for humanity, and that is a wicked dream that people will laugh at. However, at the same time, the INFJs also
strive to make that goal happen even though most people think it should stay a dream. #9 – Consistently full of paradox Lastly, INFJs are full of paradox. However, there is consistency that they also
strive to keep. They always want everything to work as planned
even though they fall into the trap of confusion and inconsistency. Well, that’s some of the paradoxes of being
an INFJ as the rarest personality type. Really cool information isn’t it? I hope you enjoy this short video, if you

    All of that is only consistent with one who sits still to long. When one is taken away or removed from one life. When an INFJ can not stay convicted to ones passions. Living life to the fullest is an INFJ's number one passion.

    I actually have been disbelieving that I am an INFJ and thinking that maybe I am not a real INFJ for a little while until I watched this video. Usually, Everyone of these videos describing the INFJ describes me but the way I responded to them made me think 'maybe not?' and how others might think that it's probably not True. But for some reason, this video actually took my reflection on myself and my entire life and reminded me of all of what makes an INFJ. Well, this is too hard to explain.. but yeah, this video is a perfect description of me, as well as other videos describing the INFJ… Just didn't fully understand enough so believe sooo yeaaahhhh xD

    Pick something you love and do not sway from it. Do not sway and pursue it to every possible and end and means. When your obstacles are rigid, flow like water. When things are soft, it's time to plow through. Just don't give up. Never stop believing in your dreams. Sometimes taking 4 to 5 steps back is necessary to jump over a chasm or wall.

    Well this paradoxical thing is a blessing and a curse, that is what makes us stand out but that is also the reason why we don't fit in and this paradoxes are the main reason why we are always suffering and having inner battle and this thought just led me to another,this is also the main reason we couldn't blame anyone because we just think from everyone's pov,we knew everything has its own pros and cons and sometimes we even try to justify things considered as wrong siting the circumstances or other factors.
