An INFJ woman is a woman who had the MBTI INFJ personality type. She has the INFJ preferences, meaning introvert, intuitive, feeling and judging. She is quiet and reserved but has strong opinions about things she really cares about. She knows things about things and people without any effort or knowledge of how she knows, but she’s right most of the time. She shows little emotion on her face, but she feels things on a deep level.
What is an INFJ?
INFJ is a personality type from the Myers Briggs Type Indicator personality test. Two women, named Myers and Briggs, developed a personality test based on Carl Jung’s theories about personalities. They determined that there are 16 different personality types based on four categories: favorite world, information, decisions and structure.
Everyone has a favorite world that they like to operate in. Introverts prefer the inner world. We like to be in our own minds, thinking about the meaning of life and dreaming about the future. Extroverts prefer the outer world. They get energy by connecting with people and sharing ideas.
This category is all about how you process information. People with a sensing personality collect information through their senses and process it at face value. They focus on what is in front of them and what they know as fact. Intuitive people collect and process information a different way though. We collect information based on feelings and vibes. We interpret it by adding meaning to it as we organize it.
People with a thinking preference make decisions based solely on facts and logic. They leave feelings out of their decision as much as possible. People with a feeling preference make decisions based on a gut feeling. We use our intuition to help point us in the right direction.
This category focuses on how you structure your life and deal with the outside world. People who are perceiving prefer to go with the flow and make decisions when they come to them. People who have a judging preference like to have a plan and make decisions ahead of time.
INFJ Personality Type
INFJs prefer to be in the inner world. We like quiet alone time and need a lot of it. We process information by adding meaning to it through our intuition. We don’t always know where all this information comes from, but we know it’s reliable. We make decisions based on our gut feelings, but we also consider the facts and logic of a situation. We are unique in that we use both thinking and feeling that way. In the outside world, we prefer things to be planned and decided. We like organization, file folders, labels, schedules and checklists. We need the plan to look forward to and to prepare ourselves for what’s coming.
What’s the best personality type?
The MBTI personality test was not meant to make one personality better or worse than another. It’s meant solely to help people understand themselves and others. It should be used as a tool to help us connect and communicate with others better.
Why INFJ Woman?
When I started my blog in 2018 I spent a little bit of time trying to come up with a name for it. I wanted to speak to people who were most like me, especially about the INFJ personality type. So I called my blog INFJ Woman. It’s not meant to be exclusive of men or people who identify another way. It’s meant to speak to people who are like me, women who have the MBTI INFJ personality type.
I want to make it clear that all are welcome here. The vast majority of my posts speak to all INFJs. However, I don’t subscribe to popular trends or the demands of the social media universe. I won’t change my name to conform to anyone’s ideas of what I should be. I am what I am, whether it’s popular or not. Any true INFJ will understand this.
I accept you as you are and I hope that you will show me the same respect.
