INFJ and Zodiac
[dropcap]E[/dropcap]veryone has a zodiac sign and you likely knew what yours was long before you ever discovered the Myers Briggs. Some people don’t completely identify with their star sign personality traits but everybody is generally on board with the descriptions about their MBTI type. You can check out this poll surveying people’s zodiac signs and MBTI types. This is understandable since your zodiac sign is determined by your date of birth (something you had no control over) whereas your Myers Briggs type is determined by your self-determined preferences. There is little to no science supporting a cosmic influence on one’s personality except for a few studies showing that people with certain mental disorders such as schizophrenia tend to be born in winter months (especially February). Personally, I don’t take astrology seriously but I do take an interest in it. I’ve noticed that there are many MBTI snobs who are staunchly against it and there are some “astrology people” who similarly view the MBTI as bogus and flawed. I imagine that most people fall somewhere in the middle with an interest in one and a mild indifference for the other. For the INFJ types out there, here are interpretations of 12 different versions of the INFJ personality based on the 12 zodiac star signs.
INFJ ARIES – The INFJ personality has little in common with the Aries archetype. For one, Aries is viewed as a very extraverted and masculine sign with a forceful, competitive and magnetic presence. Oftentimes they are considered arrogant as well. INFJs are empathetic introverts with a rational and socially conscious frame of mind. They have more in common with Pisces or even Virgo. It would be difficult to reconcile how an Aries person could identify as an INFJ since they are so very different. An astrologer would attempt to look at such a person’s natal chart to extract more details about their planetary placements. Many people do not know much about astrology beyond their sun sign, but astrology aficionados know there is much more to it than that. It is reasonable to suspect that an INFJ with an Aries sun sign might have Pisces or Cancer as their rising sign or moon sign. Or it may be that Mars, the planetary ruler of Aries, is in it’s detriment (occupying the sign of Libra). If you are an INFJ Aries, you can check out your natal chart to see what else is in there using this birth chart widget.
