— infjs indeed share a unique combination of traits: though soft-spoken, they have very strong opinions and will fight tirelessly for an idea they believe in. They are decisive and strong-willed, but will rarely use that energy for personal gain - infjs will act with creativity, imagination, conviction and sensitivity not to create advantage, but to create balance.

— their imagination and empathy make them someone who not only cherishes their integrity and deeply held principles but, unlike many other idealistic types, is also capable of turning those ideals into plans, and executing them.

— love fiercely, or not at all; exercise relentlessly and eat well, or pig out on the sofa and eat junk food; work 20 hours a day for days on end, or sit and procrastinate all weekend like it’s no one’s business. infjs cannot do middle of the road, at least not for any appreciable length of time. I’m not sure why. could it be that infjs are simply wired to do things 'with Passion or not at all'? perhaps middle of the road feels like a stagnant approach to living? it seems bland, uneventful, uninspiring. no room for development.

— the infj's ni/fe functions are also great for mirroring and adapting to different environments and people, so they can appear vastly different in different scenarios. they can be the life of the party amongst those who "get" them (very rare) but come across as painfully shy, solitary, and quiet to others (very common). they can fit in when they want, but more often than not, they rebel fiercely. this rebellious nature has come about later in their life when they started to settle into their infj skin, when they decide to drop the mask and to live true to their beliefs, even when it conflicts with society.

"each of us has a spark of life inside us, and our highest endeavour ought to be to set off that spark in one another." — kenny ausubel
