What the f... ? Huh? What are you guys talking about?... Shyness?

Actual words are still a really neat thing.

well the I is introversion which is what most people call being shy but actual shyness is actual sometimes paralyzing fear of social situatioins.


the N stands for nerd right??

If you can't lead, let me by you. If you won't follow get out the way, you're takin' up space.

The "N" is taken from the word "intuitive." They use the "n" in the word intuitive because if they used the first letter then some people would be the IIFJ personality type. Get it? So, INfJ stands for Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging.

Three years ago my then college aged son discovered the Myers Brigs assessment tool and did it with all of us at home. I came out an INFJ. I freaked out when I read what it was ... it described me perfectly. For me, understanding that I was an INFJ has helped explain my sexuality and my sexual relations as well as the way I communicate my sexuality.

Amazing thing the human brain!!!

Same here, bro*. lol

I think male INFJs have it hard, which is one reason it's interesting to see how many male INFJs there are posting in this thread. The reason male INFJs have it hard is because we are the minority. The INFJ is a minority personality type, and there are more females than males, AND ... the INFJ exhibits traits that society prefers in females (a need to "understand" others, a need for emotional rapport with others, etc.).

There are some personality types where society prefers a gender. What I mean is, society prefers it when INFJs are female, and society prefers it when the SP types are male.

I always kind of wondered if maybe there were a lot of male INFJs here.

* "Bro culture" -- can someone explain it to me?

I just took the test again and I came out INTJ but my T was slightly stronger than my F. I read the descriptions for both INFJ and INTJ and they both apply to me so I would say I am in the middle between the two.

I am also INFJ. My F is near T, though. I am more rational in my decision making process than what is described in the INFJ profile, but I am also much more in tune to my own feelings as well as the feelings of others than what is decribed in the INTJ profile. I believe it is valuable to understand MBTI results as points along a continuum.

I'm also a Pisces, and the associations with that zodiac sign come close to the verbiage in my personality type. The Keirsey Temperament Sorter describes INFJs as Counselors -- rich inner lives, preference for substantative and one-on-one relationships, valuers of harmony and cooperation, using emotions and rapport to support others. I can be an insufferable asshole sometimes, but this language sticks pretty close to my social interaction with other people. But I wouldn't read gender expectations too much into this.

The truth is, people are permitted to have rich and complex inner lives. Part of the problem, I think, is putting unfair expectations on others. It's the same reason why I think it's dumb that men are socially sanctioned from crying; at the same time, you see professional ball players blubbering when they fall out of the tournament. I'm lightened to see that younger men, maybe 10-15 years my junior, generally don't have as many hangups about that stuff.
