The memes above show pretty much how I feel whenever anyone asks why I do certain things that are part of my personality. 😂Being an INFJ, I am complicated, weird, quirky, unique, uncommon, and so on. I get that.😏 But, because we are so different from the other types, only an INFJ can truly understand what it’s like to be an INFJ. We are deep individuals who live within ourselves most of the time, because we have accepted that if we were to try to show who we were inside, we would, without a doubt, be misunderstood. Despite this, I am going to attempt to explain the most complicated type, the INFJ.
The memes/quotes you just read (or skimmed, or just skipped altogether😉😜) give a really good view of an INFJ. Seriously, if you skimmed/skipped them, you should go back and read them (unless you really just don’t care😉). They put into words things that I could never explain on my own. At least 98% of the statements above are completely relatable for me.
I really love this quote. It captures exactly how I feel when I am talking to other people. There is so, so, so much more going on in my head than what I am actually saying. By no means am I being dishonest or anything of the sort. I just acknowledge the fact that no one really cares. That kind of sounds harsh, but honestly, who wants to listen to endless hours of me saying everything that I am thinking?😂 In a split second, I can have multiple thoughts cross my mind. That’s just how my brain works.😏
Yes, yes, yes! I literally can not stand small talk. I hate talking about the weather. I much, much prefer deep discussions over exchanging words whose only purpose is to just fill space.
I definitely agree and relate to the memes above.😂 I am an introvert and am quiet at times, but I am not shy. I have hated when people labeled me as “shy” for as long as I can remember. Even when I was 4, I remember having a lot going on in my head, but I never said any of it because (outside of my family) no one asked. It wasn’t because I was too shy to talk to people, it was because no one was talking to me. I am still this way. I am not scared to talk to people, but I won’t approach them first, (unless I am really comfortable with them) either.
I am this way; I don’t really know why, but I am. I definitely got it backwards! lol😂
Yup. I will admit, I overanalyze everything.
Ok, INFJs have this thing called crazy-good intuition. Don’t believe me? Just pay attention to an INFJ’s opinions about certain things. Most of the time, they are accurate. Still don’t believe me? Ask me for examples from my own experiences.😄
I do believe in the “INFJ Door Slam”, because I have experienced it on at least one occasion. I think it’s a coping or defense mechanism for INFJs built into us for extreme situations. The “Door Slam” is rarely used, so you don’t have to worry about an INFJ in your life suddenly turning on you.😉😄
Even after all that I have already said, there is much more to the INFJ that I didn’t say. I may have to do a part 3, 4, or even 5, sometime!😄😉

This was a GREAT post! I don’t relate to everything, but definitely to a lot of it! I must be an INFJ…

I am glad you could relate! I am not sure if you are familiar with INTJs at all, but they are very similar to INFJs. The main difference is that INTJs are very unemotional. They are pretty black-and-white and may come across as unfeeling. I have times where I am an INFJ and other times where I am an INTJ, even though that is supposed to be impossible.😂
