And while forming quick friendships and extensive connections may be the goal for some extraverts, for INFJs, this is not the point at all. Due to their extraversion of Feeling (Fe), they can readily ingratiate themselves to others.Counselors are scarce, little more than three percent of the population, and can be hard to get to know, since they tend not to share their innermost thoughts or their powerful emotional reactions except with their loved ones.They are highly private people, with an unusually rich, complicated inner life. In their friends, as well as their romantic partners, they seek intelligence (both intellectual and emotional), honesty, openness, and authenticity. Rather, INFJs seek high quality, in-depth relationships.Counselors tend to work effectively in organizations.
Their curiosity about the world, including its potential role in clarifying their identity, can inspire INFPs to travel or adopt a peripatetic lifestyle.But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand..." (the Skin Horse) Rest you, my enemy, Slain without fault, Life smacks but tastelessly Lacking your salt! It's I--Ishmael." But all remained still as before. Some INFPs have a gift for taking technical information and putting it into layman's terms.Stuck in a bog whence naught May catapult me, Come from the grave, long-sought, Come and insult me! Brendan Kehoe's is one example of this "de-jargoning" talent in action.This can leave INFJs feeling like there is no ready outlet for their wisdom and that no one really understands their essential worth or value.So if and when they happen upon a likeminded individual, one who values and eagerly partakes in the INFJs’ inner life, it can feel like a godsend.
