Why Each Myers-Briggs Type Likely Quit Their Job

Published by:

mbti quit job

A good job can be hard to come by, but sometimes a good career can be spoiled by unfortunate circumstances. Here is a look at why each Myers-Briggs type is likely to quit their occupation.

INFJ

INFJ likely quit their job because they felt humiliated or seriously disrespected by a colleague or supervisor. INFJs are known to attract sociopaths who prey on their empathic nature. INFJs are able to work through or resolve most conflicts but once they recognize toxic people polluting their environment, they know that sooner or later, somebody’s got to go. INFJ’s will walk away from any job where their dignity and personal boundaries are violated.

    What Each Myers-Briggs Type Is Like At A Party

    Published by:

    Some people hate parties, others love them but whether you are for or against, you likely have attended a party or two sometime in your life. Here is a look at how each Myers-Briggs personality likely behaves when it’s party time.

    INFJ

    The Party of five –  INFJs can be so sociable that you might mistake them for an extravert. INFJs like engaging with people, but in moderation. They prefer their parties small, intimate and limited to people they approve of. That’s their idea of a nice fun time. When parties exceed single digit attendance numbers, INFJs become less and less at ease until they eventually need to abort the situation. INFJs tend to attract people through their calm warmth and air of mystery. INFJs have a hard time really cutting loose except with their closest cohorts unless of course booze is involved.

    What Each Myers-Briggs Type Is Like During Childhood

    Published by:

    Summer in the countryside by iNeedChemicalX

    In the Myers-Briggs type theory, the dominant function is believed to be the first function to develop in the function stack of each personality type. This supposedly occurs around the age of 6 as part of the process known as differentiation where the cognitive preferences begin taking shape. Here is a look at what each MBTI personality is like during childhood growing up.

    INFJ

    As a child, INFJs are likely to be unassuming and quiet yet able to acquire many friendships and interact with various types of people. INFJs are bound to be relatively well behaved and mature for their age and their parents may entrust them with responsibilities early on. As introverts, they probably spend much of their time reading or writing in a journal. They may have casual creative outlets such as writing short stories and poems, sketching and design work. Even though they maintain a very private world, they also make time for family and friends to bond and spend quality time with them. They cherish their friendships and are likely to have a special besty with whom they can really be their true selves. INFJs tend to project an image that changes according to who they’re engaging with. They may appear like chameleons due to their ability to mirror people.

    What Every Myers-Briggs Type Wants Most From Others

    Published by:

    “The Tree of Life” by iNeedChemicalX

    We all want something from others. Be it respect, love, attention or money, here is a look at what each Myers-Briggs likely wants most from other people.

    INFJ

    INFJs desire understanding and moral support from others. INFJs can sometimes feel as though they live on a remote island of emotions that only a few trusted people are allowed to visit. This need to conceal parts of themselves for fear of judgement can make them feel isolated when deep down they would like to be able share themselves more authentically. The problem is, people sometimes don’t know how to relate to them and instead criticize or misinterpret their intentions. INFJs wish other people could understand them the way they understand others.

    How Each Myers-Briggs Type Uses Religion

    Published by:

    Religion has existed for ages and continues to be a dominant force around the world for both good and evil. Religion can serve many purposes and for many people it can mean different things. It can be a tool for control or a guideline for how to live righteously. Here’s a look at how each Myers-Briggs personality is likely to utilize religion.

    INFJ

    For INFJs, religion can provide a sense of purpose and belonging – something that INFJs desire deeply. Religion operates on faith rather than facts, but INFJs have the capacity to take stock in things for which they cannot prove empirically. INFJs are drawn to metaphysics and symbolism as part of their search for meaning in their lives. Furthermore, INFJs appreciate the sense of fellowship and unity that religion fosters and also the moral guidelines it provides which can give them some direction when they lose their way in life. INFJs would like to believe that the universe is not just a cold, heartless void and that somewhere behind it all, there is a loving creator who actually cares about them.

    What Each Myers-Briggs Type Is Smug About

    Published by:

    smug mbti

    It is normal to have a little in pride in what we are good at. Each Myers-Briggs type is likely to be a bit arrogant or self-assured about the areas in which they are proficient. Here is a look at what each MBTI personality may be smug about.

    INFJ

    A sense of moral superiority and a notion that they know what is best may be something for which the INFJ is guilty of. While they are indeed like a spiritual guru, well-equipped for moral arbitration taking into account important black-and-white facts and logic in tandem with compassion and empathy, INFJs may come to think too highly of their opinions and take for granted their standard of moral authority. They may sometimes display arrogance in the form of a messiah complex or through unsolicited homilies that may strike others as being sanctimonious regardless of how well-intentioned they may be. INFJs may sometimes feel their ability to read people is on par with professional psychics and crystal balls.

    What Each Myers-Briggs Type Does When No One’s Looking

    Published by:

    girl icecream

    How we behave publicly is often in contrast with how we behave when all by our lonesome. In the presence of others, we are slightly more inhibited and self-aware and so any impulse we experience will be immediately screened through our built-in social filters so as to avoid humiliation or ridicule. The more comfortable we are with ourselves and the people in our company, the less inhibited we tend to be. However, it is likely there will always be aspects of our personality that we would prefer to keep behind closed doors. Here are the sneaky things each Myers-Briggs (MBTI) personality type is likely to do when they think no one is looking.

    What Each Myers-Briggs Type Was Made To Do

    Published by:

    The storm catcher by iNeedChemicalX

    Certain personality types are better suited than others for certain purposes. Here is a look at what you are made to do based on MBTI personality type.

    INTP

    Plumbing the depths of what is knowable, providing clarity and making sense of complex epistemological issues. INTPs are attracted to complicated problems where they can really apply their intense and obsessive overthinking to good use. INTPs are haunted by conundrums and enigmas they cannot decipher but they will persist doggedly until they either succeed or die trying. For this reason, INTPs by virtue of their personality traits, put themselves in a better position than others to work out solutions to the most perplexing problems of both philosophical and theoretical nature. The vast amount of thinking they do provides them ample opportunity for forming ingenious insights society can benefit from.

    What Each MBTI Personality Hates

    Published by:

    Everyone has a list of pet peeves that bug them. Here is a bucket of vexing things each Myers-Briggs type is likely to hate.

    What INTP Hates:

    • Eating with other people. Rather eat alone in private peacefully.
    • Glib, stupid questions: So how’s life treating ya?
    • When other people ignorantly assume what’s good for them is also good for INTP.
    • When people make decisions based on group consensus rather than making up their own mind.
    • When a boss digs into the details of what they’re doing (micromanagement).
    • When people are more concerned with appearing good than being good.
    • When people make a fuss and complain about trivial things.
    • When people shame other people for doing harmless things.
    • Rules that are unnecessary, senseless or pointless.
    • Working in teams.

    6 Signs An INTP Likes You | How INTPs show love

    Published by:

    signs an intp is in love

    How INTPs Show Affection

    How INTPs flirt and show love may differ from that of the norm. As introverts, INTPs are a socially awkward bunch. Social skills pose a steeper learning curve for them, as their inferior Fe would suggest. Because they love spending so much time in their heads where they are most comfortable, social skills are bound to become underdeveloped. INTPs are not completely devoid of a need for social interaction, but they simply aren’t motivated to go out of their way to obtain it. Continue reading

    The Logical Fallacy You Likely Use Based On Your Myers-Briggs Type

    Published by:

    logical fallacy mbti

    “mmm.” by deeanabb
    A logical fallacy is a form of rhetoric that is deemed invalid or provides an insufficient basis for an argument. It is often used defensively to deflect guilt or justify one’s actions and beliefs in a deceptive way. Logical fallacies can be very persuasive and the people who use them may either be genuinely convinced of their soundness or willfully manipulating the truth to serve their duplicitous ends.

    The Defense Mechanism Each MBTI Personality Is Likely to Use

    Published by:

    mbti defense mechanism

    It was famed psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud who introduced the concept of defense mechanisms, a topic his daughter Anna Freud later expanded on in her book “The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense“. Freud proposed that when the ego is confronted with information or experiences that conflicts with it’s self schema, it reflexively deploys psychological defense mechanisms to shield against the psychological distress of anxiety, depression and low self esteem that would result from acceptance. 

    The use of psychological defense mechanisms seems to stem from the ego’s need for psychological and emotional stability. The ego forms a conception of itself and draws boundaries for what it accepts and does not accept as part of it’s identity. In every individual, there are feelings, thoughts, and impulses existing in our psyche that are not acted on because they are either deemed as inappropriate by social standards or because they conflict with personal standards or beliefs held by the individual’s “ego ideal”. There are numerous types of defense mechanisms, many of them healthy when used maturely, such as humor, altruism and sublimation. Other forms, such as projection, denial, and “acting out” are considered unhealthy and result from a lack of self-knowledge.

    Why Do INTPs Procrastinate?

    Published by:

    My cute kitty by DopeStars via deviantart

    Time management is a skill that some people are adept at. Such individuals tend to be prompt, organized and reliable in most aspects of their lives. They follow through on their commitments and adhere to schedules and plans. In the MBTI, these traits are characteristic of judging types such as INTJ, ISTJ, ESTJ, etc. Their structured and efficient approach to tasks, allow judgers to be highly productive and successful in both academic and occupational endeavors.

    INTPs, despite being vaunted as one of the most intelligent and creative personality types, carries a reputation for underachievement. According to data collected across multiple sources, INTPs come out as the 6th lowest-earning personality type on average and they have been rated by psychologists as being among the 3 types most likely to have trouble in school (Roberds-Baxter & Baxter, 1994). In a study of middle school students, INTPs were also found to have lower grades than would be expected based on aptitude scores.

    INTP Problems With Procrastination

    So why do INTPs underperform? Are they just lazy? The reasons may vary, but INTP procrastination might be one of the greatest impediments to their own ambition. INTPs have an ‘all or nothing’ attitude and their strong interests often have a monopoly on their time and mental energy. Along with other perceiving types, INTPs can spend endless hours immersed in the things that interest them but when it comes to other responsibilities (boring, mundane, repetitive responsibilities they see little value in doing), they can’t seem to muster the motivation until it becomes a state of emergency.

    The notion that the INTP is smart but lazy likely stems from the way INTPs prioritize their time. They prefer to either tackle tedious tasks all at once or postpone them indefinitely. When it comes to deadlines, INTPs have a tendency to avoid taking action until they are mentally ready to stage an all out effort attempting to complete the mission in one fell swoop. Unfortunately, even if they manage to accomplish the objective, the quality of the end result may be less than what could have been achieved had they allowed themselves more time.

    INTPs would rather cook up an ingenious time-saving and labor-saving device, if they could,  to spare them the tedium of menial chore work. This ironically, would almost certainly require far more work and effort than if they were to just complete the simple task. This attitude is evidenced by a study in which INTPs were found to be the type most highly represented among “casual inventors” (people who indicated they spent approximately 40 hours a month working on their inventions). This, if nothing else, shows that INTPs do have the wherewithal to take their ideas and work to materialize them.

    How The INTP Brain Works

    INTJs like to put work before play and INTPs put play before work. When INTP is busy with their priorities, trash and dirty laundry will go ignored until they reach critical mass. INTPs have a high tolerance for disorder and disarray in their personal work environment and there are studies that have affirmed this. The INTP’s preoccupation with their thoughts and focus on abstraction makes their immediate environment nothing more than background noise.

    INTP attention to detail fluctuates from razor sharp to wantonly slipshod. Although INTPs are precise with language and reasoning, they are prone to making careless errors in regard to physical tasks including that of grammatical oversights. Additionally, INTPs become very distractible when doing tasks that are detail oriented. Their minds wander away from these activities to more mentally stimulating pastures until suddenly they realize they’ve poured too much milk into their cereal and the bowl runneth over.

    INTPs lack of organization and absentminded forgetfulness compromises their ability to fulfill responsibilities. Although organizational discipline can be learned, it’s a struggle for INTPs and however long they manage to sustain it, they will likely revert to their natural instincts. It’s like training a dog to walk on it’s hind legs. It could become quite good at it, but in the end they are anatomically better and more efficient when on all fours. Being overly organized probably comes at some cost to the INTP’s creative temperament but a healthy balance can certainly be achieved.

    INTP and ADHD

    On paper, the INTP personality looks a lot like a description of someone with ADHD, or more specifically ADD. According to WebMD, ADD is subset of ADHD without the hyperactivity/impulsivity component. Many symptoms of ADD coincide with descriptions of the INTP and “NPs” in general including their lack of focus on tasks that require extended time and effort. People with ADD are seen as often daydreaming and in their own world. They are inattentive and easily sidetracked.

    Symptoms of ADD:

    • Trouble paying attention (easily side-tracked)
    • Doesn’t like or avoids long mental tasks (such as homework)
    • Trouble staying on task during school, at home, or even at play
    • Disorganized and seems forgetful
    • Doesn’t appear to listen when directly spoken to
    • Doesn’t pay close attention to details
    • Loses things often
    • Makes careless mistakes
    • Struggles to follow through with instructions
    • Difficulty maintaining focus
    • Making careless mistakes; poor attention to detail
    • Complaints of being bored
    • Appearing unmotivated or apathetic
    • Being tired, sluggish or slow moving
    • Appearing “spacey” or preoccupied
    • A short attention span for regular, routine, everyday tasks (homework, chores, etc.)
    • Distractibility
    • Organization problems (like having a messy room, always running late, etc.)
    • Procrastination
    • Problems with follow-through
    • Poor impulse control (saying or doing something before thinking it through)

    The traits of ADD are more often found in introverts. ADHD by contrast exhibits a more fidgety and attention-seeking form of inattentiveness that is distinct from regular ADD. ADHD people are restless and children with it are often squirming, tapping, talking and behaving inappropriately with poor impulse control. A study found that children diagnosed with ADD were 72% introverted while children diagnosed with ADHD were 60% extraverted. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, ADHD symptoms in children include:

    • Fidget and squirm in their seats
    • Leave their seats in situations when staying seated is expected, such as in the classroom or in the office
    • Run or dash around or climb in situations where it is inappropriate or, in teens and adults, often feel restless
    • Be unable to play or engage in hobbies quietly
    • Be constantly in motion or “on the go,” or act as if “driven by a motor”
    • Talk nonstop
    • Blurt out an answer before a question has been completed, finish other people’s sentences, or speak without waiting for a turn in conversation
    • Have trouble waiting his or her turn
    • Interrupt or intrude on others, for example in conversations, games, or activities

    INTP Overthinking

    INTP critical thinking ability is probably unmatched by any other MBTI type. INTPs in their ability to assess things from many different angles and viewpoints may often suffer from “analysis paralysis”. Analysis paralysis is basically an inability to take any decisive course of action because of option overload. It just so happens that INTPs have the ability to assess a multitude of contingencies and possible pathways but the INTP may feel there is always a better one or they may foresee how each one could go wrong. This dilemma of the INTP thinking too much can manifest into neuroticism and INTP negative thinking that may become self-defeating.

    Many INTPs are absent-minded professors who would be content to while away their time pondering the mysteries of the universe like some lazy genius. INTPs have a busy thought life and they exhaustively obsess over problems, analyze ideas and arguments, and generate new ones of their own. The INTP thinking face is like a less menacing version of the INTJ death stare.

    They are “thinking machines” but it is hard for others to appreciate this as work because it all takes place discreetly in the INTP’s mind. There is often nothing to show for all the mental work INTP performs because for the most part, the act of creating concepts and understanding them is an end unto itself. The process of actually testing out those ideas in the real world is a whole other bag of tricks the INTP may prefer outsourcing to someone else.

    INTP and Organization

    INTP can deal with procrastination a number of ways. Even though INTPs are inherently disinterested in following a regimented lifestyle, this does not discount the fact that incorporating a more systematic approach and adopting disciplined habits can increase their productivity and efficiency. Sure, they may have to forego their bohemian lifestyle temporarily, but when it comes to getting things done, the utility of having organization skill is worth it.

    Many INTP need structure and there are various ways of helping the INTP get organized. For one, they can break down larger tasks into smaller bite sized goals and begin chipping away at them as soon as possible. They should work out a realistic schedule and make a serious effort to stick to it. Allot time for a focused work session interspersed with short breaks to allow the INTP brain to reset. Too much time spent doing one thing and the ol’ INTP brain fog will start to set in (either that or ADHD).

    Tips To Overcome INTP Procrastination:

      1. Don’t Catastrophize – A common reason why people procrastinate is because they fear the long and arduous drudgery associated with the task before them. They anticipate the misery they will endure and the pain it will supposedly cause them. This mindset generally exaggerates the actual situation. Get rid of the gloom and doom view and recognize that it’s probably not nearly as bad as you might make it out to be. Take it as a challenge and attack it with force.
      2. Focus On Why It Must Be Done – Remind yourself of the consequences of not doing the task sooner rather than later and assess what’s really at stake. You may be minimizing the necessity of the task and erroneously overlooking or undervaluing it’s importance. Think of the benefits of completing the task and how good it will feel to have it done and over with.
      3. Mark Your Calendar – Plan ahead and clear your schedule to set aside time specifically for that task. This allows you to prepare mentally in advance for productive work sessions.
      4. Chunk it – Break up large tasks into smaller manageable chunks. Doing things at the last minute puts unnecessary pressure on procrastinators. Give yourself sufficient time to whittle away at the task and focus on smaller portions at a time. This will save yourself a lot of time and stress and make the task easier to tackle.
      5. Optimize Your Environment – Don’t underestimate the power of a tidy work space. A cluttered work area makes for a cluttered mind, as they say. Even though INTPs are often too engrossed with other things to even notice the chaos and disorder around them, an orderly and clean work environment can have an anodyne effect on the mind and probably remove distractions that could disrupt focus.
      6. Forget Perfectionism – Sometimes, perfectionism is to blame for why people put things off longer than they should. Perfectionism can set too high a bar such that the possibility of not being able to reach it justifies not attempting to at all. It might be helpful to just throw those lofty expectations right out the window and give it your best. Just get it done and move on, there’s no need to torture yourself.
      7. Reward Yourself – Give yourself a little incentive to get started by treating yourself upon reaching significant milestones of progress. Or just promise yourself a reward at the end, you’ll definitely be more motivated to reach the finish line once you know there is a something good waiting for you.

    5 Reasons Why INFJs fall for INTPs

    Published by:

    infj intp golden couple

    INFJ INTP golden couple

    The INFJ-INTP Golden Couple

    Despite what type theories might suggest, I believe just about any pair of MBTI personalities have a fighting chance at forming a happy relationship. INTJs for example, are supposedly least compatible with Artisans (SPs) and Guardians (SJs) but a self proclaimed INTJ Youtuber named Ben has testified to being happily married to an ISFJ. Romantic chemistry and compatibility is a person-to-person matter and so the MBTI hopefully will not prevent individuals from keeping an open mind. Still, type theory can be a helpful tool in pointing us to the personality types with the most positive prospects.

    The INFJ INTP romance could be one such pairing that holds promise. Do INFJ and INTP get along? By David Keirsey’s estimation, sure. Keirsey, author of “Please Understand Me” and “Please Understand Me II” believed that Idealists and Rationals get along well due to their shared “N” perceiving preference. These two temperament groups are preoccupied with abstraction, metaphor and creativity and this impacts the way they relate with others and communicate and communication is central to any great relationship.

    Whether it is an INFJ female with INTP male, or INFJ male with INTP female (or whatever way you wanna match it), here is a look at 5 aspects of the INFJ-INTP relationship that might answer the question: Why is INFJ and INTP the golden pair?

    1 INFJ Appreciates The INTP Commitment To Principles

    INFJs being the shrewd judges of character they are, will likely admire the INTP’s noble qualities such as their intellectual integrity, their unrelenting quest for truth and their honesty. Despite their overall candor, INTPs tend to be rather polite and tactful in how they express themselves. Although their inferior Fe makes them something of a social misfit, it still allows them to appreciate some measure of social etiquette in the service of avoiding unnecessary discord with others. INTPs will likely develop principles that govern the way they engage with people – a “rules of engagement” so to speak. It is likely that at some point early in their lives INTPs may have worked out coping mechanisms to deal with people in ways that make sense to them while still being true to themselves. These principles will undoubtedly be predicated on fairness and objectivity and may be something INFJ notices and appreciates.

    2 INFJ And INTP Both Tend To Be Night Owls

    Although, INFJs are more disposed to following more structured lifestyles than the INTP, they nonetheless share with them, a taste for the night life. As introverted intuitive types, both the INTP and INFJ will likely agree that night time just makes everything better. When dusk falls, the INFJ and INTP pair will enjoy staying up doing what they like to do together like watching movies, gaming and having deep conversations about things they find interesting. Their creative juices are likely to be most active during the evening hours where they are bound to get up to all kinds of introverted fun around the time when early bird-inclined personalities (like maybe ISFJ for example) begin to peter out.

    3 INFJ Is A Great Sounding Board For INTP

    Talking about their ideas is something INTPs like to do because the exercise of finding the right words to clearly articulate their message out loud helps reinforce the clarity of it in their own minds as well as help them discover any flaws or holes in their thinking. INFJs are good conversation partners for INTP because they are excellent listeners and one of the types whose eyes won’t glaze over when INTP goes into their involuted and sometimes hard-to-follow streams of thought.

    INTP likes to jump around connecting one idea with another and then suddenly in a leap of intuition, veers off into what appears to be a non-sequitur to the person listening but actually follows a meaningful connection the INTP may have to explain. INFJ is great because they will entertain the topics that INTP broaches and follow it to it’s natural conclusion without trying to change the subject. Because of their shared “N”, they have the potential for playing off each other nicely in conversation with a good back-and-forth rapport that feels natural and easy.

    4 INFJs Can Provide The Love and Understanding INTPs Secretly Desire

    INTP’s trouble with intimacy stems from their persistent fear of rejection. They are painfully aware of their awkwardness in this arena and often shy away from opportunities to give or receive affection if they feel pressure. INFJ is able to put INTPs at ease with their calm soothing manner of speaking and sympathetic ear. They make INTP feel protected and understood. INFJ’s have Ti as their auxiliary function and this allows them to share a desire to understand rather than judge or condemn aspects of INTP that may baffle or annoy them.

    INFJ-INTP dating may initially face certain problems or challenges until INTP can lower their guard and give INFJ the intimacy they desire. Deep down INTP wants to express that part of themselves because beneath their reserved demeanor lay intense emotions that they try to keep under rational control. It is worth noting that in a Thoughtcatalog love language survey, INFJs and INTPs reported the same love language preferences on average with physical affection ranking as the 3rd most popular love language of these two types.

    5 INTPs Are Funny (Both Intentionally and Unintentionally)

    INTP absent-mindedness and social gaffes can be a source of comedy in itself, but INTPs also tend to have a smart and clever sense of humor that often involves punny quips and well placed one-liners. They can be intentionally funny and their sense of humor promises to be unusual and irreverent. INTPs observe a great deal of behavior in others that they regard as absurd. They are good at mocking the things that vex them and poking holes in it, exposing the ridiculousness with satirical and sarcastic hyperbole (a la Larry David).
