6 Careers INFJs Should Probably Avoid

If you’ve heard about the Myers-Briggs Personality Test, chances are you have dived into this complex personality test to figure out where you stand. According to the test, there are sixteen personality types, with INFJ being the rarest of them all.

Do you fall into the 2% who relate to this personality type?

If so, you might want some INFJ career advice to ensure you don’t waste time with careers that don’t work for your personality.
But before we can figure out what careers to avoid, we have to understand what INFJs are all about.

What is an INFJ?

INFJ are dynamic personalities that are often called “The Advocate,” for the downtrodden. They’re also widely known to be intuitive, have high Emotional Intelligence, and are aloof or mysterious.

The Myers-Briggs personality Test was first created in the 1940’s by mother and daughter duo Isabel Myers and Katharine Briggs. Their work was built on the research of psychoanalyst Carl Jung. The test looks at four particular categories, introversion vs extroversion, sensing vs intuition, thinking vs feeling, judging vs perceiving. Depending on which why your personality leans, you fall into the 16 different personality categories.

INFJ stands for Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, and Judging. They are close to impossible to identify in society since they’re more reserved than other personality types. Loyal, empathetic, organized, and leaders they are dedicated to ensuring the progress of humanity.

Now that you have some background about what INFJs prefer, let’s explore the careers that INFJs are better off avoiding.

Career #3 to Avoid: Politics

Another career that just doesn’t work well for INFJs is politics. Political careers are consistently in the public eye. Politicians are required to be approachable and available to their constituents regularly. It also requires them to interact with a variety of personalities, which can take a toll on INFJs.

Political figures also have to manipulate people and go towards confrontation instead of avoiding it. That’s an issue for the highly sensitive and defensive INFJ personality type. The requirements for this career path are completely unaligned with the desires of INFJ personalities, making it yet another INFJ career to avoid.
