    English is a language with strong emphasis on word order and bizarre, complicated grammatical rules. I'm sure Js dig that.

    I'm not sure I agree with your analysis of INFJs having an especially good command of language. I'm surrounded by quite a few multi-lingual people and I'd say only a predictably small number of them are INFJ.

    I would bet that INFJs really like being English teachers on a secondary or tertiary level, though.

    Well we are the rarest type.

    IJs usually best spellers, most detail-oriented among the types.

    But...but...I'm a great speller.



    I think that has more to do with the fact that I had no friends and read all the time as a child. Plus, I'm a perfectionist. I don't know what it has to do with INFP.

    I'm not sure what being multi-lingual has to do with it. As far as competency in one's primary language, virtually every INFJ I know is pretty articulate.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    You said that INFJs have a particularly good command of language, not English specifically. Seeing as that I know at least ten people IRL who speak three or more languages, my mind immediately went to them.

    I agree that most INFJs are articulate. See the first part of my last post.

    Well I obviously didn't mean they had good command of languages that they don't speak! I imagine if they took the time to learn other languages, they'd probably be good at those too.

    "Good command of language" = natural affinity for learning and expressing language. It doesn't mean they're supposed to be good at languages they're totally unfamiliar with, just that they pick up and use language more effectively than most people.

    If you're smart & interested, you'll learn languages quickly. I don't know how type could play a part, except perhaps influencing the level of interest (perhaps feeling types are more interested in connecting with people, which requires language knowledge).
