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 #1 to Avoid: Marketing

Marketing is a very public career. It requires an outspoken personality with an intense desire to be out front. INFJ folks aren’t into that. They prefer to stay reserved and don’t particularly enjoy speaking up in front of other people. Working with a large team, like a marketing team, could be a recipe for disaster.

Marketing also requires constant discussions with other people, further complicating their role. INFJs work better alone. This especially true if the people on their team come from different intellectual approaches.

This is one of the top INFJ careers to avoid if you want to be successful in your career.
