“I have striven not to laugh at human actions, not to weep at them, nor to hate them, but to understand them.”
– Baruch Spinoza, an INFJ
INFJs are a rare breed, making up only 1% of the population. These somewhat mystical personalities combine insight, intellect, and empathy to “read” people in a way that is almost uncanny. They use their masterful Introverted Intuition (Ni) to form deep insights into people and situations. With this intuition they are constantly looking ahead to determine what will be. They use their auxiliary Extraverted Feeling (Fe) to connect with people and understand their needs and emotions. They care deeply about the human race and want to help people by listening, counseling, and emotionally supporting them. If you look at many of our great philosophers and authors, you will find a plethora of INFJs; people like Dante Alighieri, Carl Jung, Agatha Christie, and even J.K. Rowling!
