INFJ: The Advocate

INFJ: The Advocate (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)

Intuitive and deep-thinkers, the INFJ, or “The Advocate” (or sometimes “The Counselor”) seeks to wholly understand the world around them and bring out the best in each individual.

In this article, we will explore the INFJ in detail so that if you, or anyone you know, has tested as an INFJ, you can have a good understanding of their traits, strengths and functions.

INFJ Meaning

The INFJ, or the Advocate, is one of the of the “16 personality types” that we see in several different models the work of Carl Jung. These models include the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Keirsey Temperament Sorter, among others.

INFJ stands for Introversion, iNtuitive, Feeling and Judging. This indicates that they are a person who is energized by spending time alone, who focuses on ideas and concepts, who makes decisions emotions and values, and who prefers to be planned and organized.

INFJ Traits

An INFJs main method of assessing the people and situations around them is intuition. Since their primary focus is inward, they deal with things according to how they feel about them. The facts of a situation are secondary to how it aligns with their feelings and values.

Other people describe INFJs as gentle and caring. Yet, they see themselves as a highly intuitive and complex individuals. It is extremely important to INFJs to have order and systems in place in their outer world.

They spend a lot of time devising the systems that work best for them, only to change them when their intuition dictates that something isn’t right. More than any other personality type, INFJs have amazingly accurate insights into situations and people.

It doesn’t take them long to size things up correctly.

They get their nickname “The Advocate” (or “counselor” and “psychic”) because of their natural ability to read and understand others’ emotions. Often, Advocates can understand the emotions of others better than their own. INFJs are intense and soothing and often contemplate the meaning behind each action and plan.

Strengths and Weaknesses of INFJs

INFJs can be secretive and private, allowing only a few people into their inner world. If you can relate, you probably also understand feeling lonely and misunderstood a good portion of the time.

Although INFJs don’t have a large circle of friends, they are very close to the ones they do have, truly treasuring them. The Advocate tends to dread conflict and avoid it at all costs.

Unfortunately, this can manifest itself in physical health problems as times goes on.

Because they rely so heavily on intuition, it can be difficult for them to see that others have valid points and beliefs as well.

INFJ Cognitive Functions (Functional Stack)

Each of the 16 personality types has four cognitive functions, as introduced by Carl Jung.

These functions are the two scales of Sensing-Intuition (used to process information) and Thinking-Feeling (used to make decisions), each of which can be expressed both in an extraverted manner (e.g., displayed outwardly/externally) or an introverted manner (e.g.

, displayed inwardly or internally). The INFJ has a ‘Ni, Fe, Ti, Se” cognitive stack. However, they are called the ‘NiFe” due to their top two functions. This cognitive stacks means that:

  • Dominant: Ni (internal iNtuition) dictates how an INFJ stores information and how they perceive that information. Due to this Ni preference, INFJs tend to store information in a spread out way with all pieces of data having connections of various strengths to multiple additional pieces of data.
  • Auxiliary: Fe (external Feeling) is the function that the INFJ uses when interacting with the outer world. It is the way that the INFJ processes their emotions.
  • Tertiary: Ti (internal Thinking) allows INFJs to make decisions logic and operates internally. This function helps INFJs to fully understand the connections that their Ni function makes outside of the conscious realm.
  • Inferior: Se (external Sensing) is the INFJs least developed function. It perceives the outer world as stable, concrete and structured. The Se function allows an INFJ to be aware of their surroundings, be full present in the moment and appreciate the beauty in things.

INFJ and Work/Careers

Most INFJs are highly creative and independent people. They have a natural tendency to seek careers in the arts and science. While these may seem opposite extremes, it makes sense to many Advocates.

An artistic career allows them to express their creative side, while a career in science gives them the opportunity to draw on their intuition to solve complex problems. Service-oriented careers are another good fit for INFJs.

Other career possibilities include counselor, psychologist or alternative healthcare provider.

The Advocate personality type is the rarest of the 16 types, making up only 2% of the general population. Famous INFJs include:

  • Mohandas Gandhi
  • Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Edward Snowden
  • Emily Bronte
  • Florence Nightingale
  • Shirley MacLaine
  • Carl Jung
  • Jimmy Carter
  • Fyodor Dostoevsky

INFJ Hobbies

  • Listening to music, building new playlists
  • Meditating and deliberately relaxing their mind
  • Reflecting on their thoughts and behaviors
  • Reading spirituality, psychology, self-improvement, wellbeing books
  • Having in-depth conversations with close friends

INFJ Quotes

“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but…from inner necessity.”
– Carl Jung

“If you quietly accept and go along no matter what your feelings are, ultimately you internalize what you’re saying.”
– Noam Chomsky

“You don’t want to say the wrong thing. I’ve seen [people] hurt for years over something that was unnecessary and didn’t have to be said.”
– Al Pacino

“It’s…in my nature to [try to] understand why we are here and communicate with people.”
– Jennifer Connelly

“My life is an indivisible whole, and all my activities run into one another…they all have their rise in my insatiable love of mankind.”
– Mahatma Gandhi


Those who score as an INFJ (Advocate personality type) will sit somewhere on the identity scale, ranging from assertive (A) to turbulent (T). INFJ-As tend to focus on the positives, often appearing hopeful. They aren’t particularly bothered by the opinions of others, but this can sometimes make them appear insensitive or they don’t care!

The INFJ-T is far more self-doubting. However, these self-doubts, worries and concerns drive them to be productive, make significant process and learn from their mistakes.

21 Signs You’re an INFJ, the Rarest Personality Type

INFJ: The Advocate (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)

The INFJ personality type can be quirky, complicated, and sometimes downright contradictory. How do you know if you’re an INFJ, the rarest of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types? If you relate to most of these 21 signs, the answer just might be yes.

1. From a young age, you felt different from the people around you

Even if you had plenty of friends, you never felt you truly fit in. Sometimes you faked being more them so they would accept you. This is normal for an INFJ, because we need a sense of community and harmony with those around us.

2. You want to know what’s REALLY going on in people’s lives…

…not just trivial stuff what they did this weekend or what they bought on their latest shopping trip. You want to dig deep and get at the things that no one else sees. What does the person in front of you really think? How does this person really feel? The fake facade they put up for other people doesn’t fool you.

3. Plans?

You feel more comfortable having a loose plan for things than you do completely winging it.

4. You’re social, but…

You can be both incredibly shy, quiet, and withdrawn, as well as charming, fun, and hilarious. For an INFJ, it’s all about the situation, your mood, and energy levels — and most important, the people you’re with.

5. How you handle problems

When someone comes to you with a problem, you usually don’t give them advice or your opinion unless they ask. Instead, you ask them questions to help them better understand the situation and their own feelings about it.

Sometimes you tell a story of a time when something similar happened to you, in the hope that they’ll draw their own lesson. You feel you can usually see the path they should take, but you don’t want them to do it just because you told them to — you want it to be their decision.

(This is why INFJs are often considered natural advice-givers and counsellors.)

6. There are limits to your introversion

You are an introvert and you alone time, but you can’t be alone for too long. Eventually you need to reunite with your people. “Your people” are a handful of good friends who truly get you. Deep conversations with these people are priceless, and hanging out with them can actually boost your energy.

7. The door slam

You’ve been known to suddenly cut people your life when they’ve hurt you one too many times. It’s not that you enjoy cutting people out, rather, you do this simply to protect yourself. Even though you may look you have it together on the outside, you’re extremely sensitive inwardly, and you’re especially sensitive to other people’s words and actions.

8. You can be a people-pleaser

Sometimes you try so hard to make other people happy that you forget to make yourself happy. (This is ly one of the biggest problems you’ll struggle to overcome.)

9. Empathy

You often feel you see precisely what someone else is feeling, and you believe you know what they need deep down. You’re not always right, but you tend to be more perceptive than most.

10. You have a destiny

You feel you’re destined for so much more than just dragging yourself to your 9-5 job to pay the bills. You want to help people and change the world — not just get a paycheck. The problem is you either don’t know what your “glorious purpose” is, or you have an inkling, but you don’t know how to achieve it.

11. Always striving

You almost always have this sinking feeling you could be doing better with your life. This results in you constantly have secret self-improvement projects going on, learning how to cook healthy meals, setting better boundaries, or getting better at articulating yourself. Sometimes you push yourself too hard as you attempt to achieve your “perfect” life.

12. Your defense mechanism

Sometimes you turn to people-pleasing to protect yourself. You’re sensitive, so you can get really bothered when someone criticizes you or is disappointed in you. They can’t criticize you if you make them happy.

13. You sense things

You often immediately sense the mood of a room when you walk into it. wise, you often absorb the feelings of the people around you. If they’re excited, you get excited. If they’re anxious, you get anxious, too. You tend to gravitate toward calm, centered people so you don’t have to deal with as much emotional garbage.

14. Nothing but class

You’re drawn to high-quality things, good food, nice clothes, and anything else that has good craftsmanship. As much as you hate to admit it, the way things look is important to you. You being surrounded by beauty, and you tend to have sophisticated, refined tastes. But you’re a minimalist at heart. You’d rather have one or two really nice shirts than ten mediocre ones.

15. Your secret feelings

You care deeply about the people in your life, but they’ll probably never know just how much you care, because you keep your feelings mostly to yourself. You can have trouble articulating your emotions, even though you feel them intensely. (And when our personality type falls in love with someone, we fall hard.)

16. You care… a lot

You’re usually thoughtful, conscientious, and considerate. Other people who are not as conscientious can seem callous and even cruel.

17. Books, please!

You love learning, especially when it comes to psychology, self-improvement, spirituality, and certain sciences.

18. Your head is way beyond the clouds

When everyone else is gossiping, discussing celebs, or talking about other trivial things, you often find yourself thinking about outer space, time travel, human nature, the meaning of life, and other more epic topics. You rarely try to steer the conversation in that direction, though, because you don’t think other people will be interested.

19. You never stop striving

You feel compelled to get things done. You often write to-do lists, and you enjoy checking things off them. If you don’t have a goal to work toward, after a while, you feel lost and bored.

20. You do six impossible things before breakfast

When you’re passionate about something, it feels nothing can stand in your way. The INFJ motto is, “The impossible takes just a little bit longer.”

21. You didn’t ask to be this

Other people see you as wise, insightful, and almost spiritual. They often come to you for advice and emotional support. You relish your role as the “wise one,” and you being needed. But sometimes it becomes too much. You’re an introvert, for crying out loud, and sometimes you just wish everyone would solve their own problems and leave you alone for a while.

Are You an INFJ?

Some of these signs are things a lot of people will identify with, and every INFJ is going to be a little different. If you can relate to most of them, however, chances are good that you’re an INFJ.

INFJ (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)

INFJ: The Advocate (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)

In this brief guide, you will get to know the details regarding INFJ, its link with Myers Briggs personality test, the meaning of INFJ, famous people with INFJ, as well as suitable career options.

The definition of INFJ

INFJ is a type of MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator). MBTI is a personality test available here as well to administer.

MBTI is the theory of Carl Jung and was developed by Katherine Briggs and her daughter Myers Briggs.

They developed this 16 personality type indicator on the theory introduced by Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung.

This test was originally published in 1962, and since then being used to identify the career preferences. Initially, it was used to assess which career is best for women during WWII.

MBTI is one of the most widely used personality tests to assess the tendencies of people to work and think in a particular way.

Main Domains of MBTI (Myers Briggs Personality Theory)

The theory describes four core domains that lie on a continuum where one domain is opposing the other side of the domain.

This is also known as dichotomous domains.

The initial domains are the writings of Jung, while the last domain was added by Katherine Briggs.

  1. Extraversion vs Introversion
  2. Sensing vs Intuition
  3. Thinking vs Feeling
  4. Judging vs Perceiving

Let’s cover these four core domains in detail:

1.Extraversion vs Introversion

This says that the person high on extraversion s to join people and participate in gatherings.

They also feel recharged in the presence of others.

While the introvert tries to keep to himself and spend alone time, as well as being quite reflective throughout the day.

2.Sensing vs Intuition

Some people collect the information from the environment directly by their enhanced use of sensation.

They use their five senses to make sense of the world.

While the intuitive is more imaginative, dreamy, and innovative about the surroundings and what they mean.

3.Thinking vs Feeling

If you consider yourself a thinker, then you must be considering the logic behind everything and go for the right solution.

While feelers use their hearts more than their heads.

The person high on feelings understands the situations on the basis of emotions, and considers others.

4.Judging vs Perceiving

If you have seen someone organized, structured, following schedules then you already have come across the person dominant on judging.

Whereas the person high on perceiving, they consider things as open, flexible and easy-going.

MBTI says that you are either on one side of the continuum or the other.

Once you will be tested on MBTI, your scores will give you your four preferences using four initial letters, such as “INFJ”, which shows Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, and Judging as dominant types.

Personality Types in MBTI

As discussed before, the MBTI gives 16 personality domains, four domains of personality.

These four domains combine in 16 different ways and describe the type of personality according to their preference.

Someone more on judging is more organized, and plans ahead and maybe not comfortable with being spontaneous.

There is a good piece of writing which extends the learning.

MBTI talks about the interaction of four core domains between then, which gives an extended version of one’s personality.

This understanding regarding oneself is fruitful in a way of deciding the career, and right profession.

The person gets to know the flavours of his or her personality.

Whereas there are a lot of other tools available for the personality assessment, such as enneagram, and Big Five, but they just give a brief idea about personality.

The Following are 16 MBTI domains, for details please follow the links below:

  1. ENTJ (Extrovert, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging)
  2. INTJ (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging)
  3. ENTP (Extrovert, Intuitive, Thinking, Perceiving)
  4. INTP (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinking, Perceiving)
  5. ENFJ (Extrovert, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)
  6. INFJ (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)
  7. ENFP (Extrovert, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving)
  8. INFP (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving)
  9. ESTJ (Extrovert, Sensing, Thinking, Judging)
  10. ISTJ (Introvert, Sensing, Thinking, Judging)
  11. ESFJ (Extrovert, Sensing, Feeling, Judging)
  12. ISFJ (Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, Judging)
  13. ESTP (Extrovert, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving)
  14. ISTP (Introvert, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving)
  15. ESFP (Extrovert, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving)
  16. ISFP (Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving)

INFJ Personality (Advocate) Guide — Traits, Careers & Facts

INFJ: The Advocate (Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging)

INFJs have a way of playing with words and of articulating their views effectively. Even though they rarely make good speakers, they mostly use writing as their medium of communication. This is one of the reasons why INFJs tend to prosper in the creative industry where they can express their views fully.

People exhibiting these personality traits are deep and complex. They are unique, searching for meaning in multiple life areas, including friendship and relationships. They don’t have wide social networks, but the connections they have are strong and long-lasting.

INFJs are good listeners and very attentive when interacting with their acquaintances. Therefore, INFJs might feel drained after long social interactions and might take some time to recharge after them.

Due to their reserved nature, it can be an uphill task to get an INFJ into your friend circle. These are people who prioritize only their closest friends. So trying to invade their privacy can hurt them. Even though they may never show, you can quickly get yourself the INFJ door slam – a situation in which an INFJ cuts off someone from their lives.

If you want to be friends and catch up well with an INFJ, try to understand their perspectives and life views as the cheap talk will not get you far.

When you think that introverts don’t say much, you can get a big surprise with INFJs. If advocates accept you to their inner circle, you can find them much more communicative than your typical extrovert.

INFs are silent influencers. While they may never say much, some people can interpret it as a sign of power. This reputation and influence can grow over time as they surround themselves with such people.

One of the ways to win advocate’s trust is to give them space to recharge. People with INFJ personality do not require full-time attention. Quality means everything to them; they forge long-lasting friendships mutual understanding and beliefs.

INFJ tend to be good parents because of their ability to connect and understand people. They transfer this talent to their children and have high expectations of who their kids should be.

They also set the bar high in all children matters and push their children to reach the highest excellence marks. Since they are kind, caring, and compassionate, INFJs will inspire their kids to pursue their interests and realize their full potential.

INFJs are arguably the best when it comes to understanding feelings and emotions. They take issues of relationships seriously and do not engage in casual encounters. They stick to the partners with whom the same values.

They crave for sincere, authentic, romantic, and honest partners. The best way to win an INFJ is to focus on these qualities.

Advocates are perfectionists; therefore, they’ll look for truly compatible partners. They believe partners should help each other grow and improve. So be ready to challenge and be challenged.

Advocate personalities are not afraid to outrightly show their love to the ones they love. They’ll do everything to keep their partners happy. They are wise and spontaneous, keeping their love flame blazing. They are full of occasional surprises to their loved ones, making them very romantic partners.

INFJs are high achievers and aim only at excellent results. You may find an INFJ easy going and hardworking, but don’t take advantage of that. Give them space to recharge and to be by themselves to be most productive.

They will rarely air their problems publicly, even if these problems affect their performance. For you, as their manager, it’s important to reach out to them if you notice anything disturbing them to address the issue at the root.

  3. They are choosy when it comes to romantic relationships. They will relentlessly pursue a partner who shares their values, yet can quickly switch to a new target if their feelings will not be reciprocal. Such situations can lead to what psychologists refer to as an INFJ door slam.
  4. Due to their caring and empathetic nature, INFJs thrive in careers that relate to serving humanity. For example, you’ll find them in community service groups, spiritual leaderships, and volunteering campaigns.
  5. They are the rarest of the 16 personality types in the human population. Therefore, it is so hard to find a true INFJ, despite many people imagining they are one of the advocates.

How do others see and perceive the INFJ?

On the positive side, people view INFJs as gentle, sensitive, and caring people who have an infinite sense of responsibility. Due to their endless helpfulness, many people perceive them as very resourceful. Advocates are committed to helping people achieve best solutions and are not afraid of difficult situations.

On the negative side, advocates can be perceived as stubborn. This is due to their unrelenting spirit when pursuing their life ideals and goals.

At the start of the relationship, an INFJ can do small things taking you out for dinner, asking about your family, etc. Advocates take falling in love seriously and so they are never in a hurry. The moment they decide to love someone, they do it wholeheartedly. When it happens, they can do everything to please you.

INFJ stare refers to the direct, steady focus to one thing or direction by an INFJ. When the focus changes to a different direction, the whole head changes direction too.

Are INFJs rare? And how rare?

Yes. INFJs are the rarest of the Myers-Briggs personality types. INFJs constitute only about 2% of the total population.

Women take a larger share of all INFJs with 2% of the population, while among men they are even rarer with only 1% being advocates.

If you exhibit the character traits above and you suspect to be an INFJ, you shouldn’t be worried. It is just a psychological classification and doesn’t mean you will suffer INFJ personality disorders. At the contrary, you should embrace your nature and focus on its strengths.
