Alignment, Ease, Energy & Flow: INFJ

I’m an INFJ on the Myers-Briggs personality assessment. What that means for me is…

  • Alone time recharges me.
  • Brainstorming is as natural as breathing.
  • A 5-year plan excites me.
  • I’m wired to find meaning and follow hunches.
  • People come first, then facts.
  • Loud drains me.
  • I’m single-minded in pursuit of a vision.
  • Potential and possibility are my playground.
  • Being early is being on time.
  • I’m private and self-contained.
  • Sometimes I love planning more than doing.
  • Authenticity is one of my favorite words.
  • I really, really trust inspiration.
  • Problems are just waiting to be solved.
  • My mind is permanently fixed on What if…
  • I love understanding what motivates people.
  • Calm comes over me when I complete a task.
  • I’m future oriented—maybe to a fault.

Yes, all that—and oh so much more—is packed into my 4-letter personality type.

I’m not exaggerating when I say taking the Myers-Briggs was life changing for me. Indeed, the assessment forever changed not only my understanding, but also my acceptance of who I am.

Because let’s be clear: Self-insight is power.

And insight into who you are and why you do what you do gives you:

  • Power to choose people and situations that energize you.
  • Power to avoid and shed what drains and diminishes you.
  • Power to act out of choice rather than out of reflex.
  • Power to appreciate and capitalize on your strengths and what comes naturally.

Do you want to better understand what makes you tick? Could you use a little more self-awareness and a lot more self-acceptance?
