    Default Type 1 INFJ vs. Type 4 INFJ

    It seems that Enneagram Types 1 and 4 are the most strongly correlated with the INFJ personality. Does anybody want to guess how these two "flavors" of the INFJ differ and how they are similar?

    I think that the Type 1 INFJ would fall in line with the humanitarian portrait of the type, whereas the Type 4 INFJ would be more in tune with the rare and mysterious image. Obviously, the INFJ is multifaceted.

    INFJs are likely to be 1, 4, 6 and 9 with a fair amount of 2s and occasional 8s

    Elfboy,

    Why do reckon Prince and Poe are INFJs? Many say the first is an ISFP and the second an INFP.

    I can't see Poe being anything but Social-last.

    1s seem to be wracked with guilt and shame a lot of the time. 4s seem more willing to accept aspects of themselves that would potentially be the source of those feelings.

    I'm not sure if I know any INFJ 4s, but my mom is an INFJ 1w2 and she is the archetypal INFJ crusader. You know -- the person who yells at the TV whenever a particularly obnoxious pundit is on, calls people who disagree with her (on politics or morals) "idiots" behind their backs, goes to protest marches and peace rallies... and also nags nags nags to make sure everyone is doing things the way they should be done. Of course, to be fair, I see a lot of this behavior when she'd probably only show it to her close friends, since, being an INFJ, she doesn't want to cause any bad feelings by being polarizing. But then again -- she's a college professor, and she spent ten full minutes of a class one time raging about Twilight, how it sends really horrible messages to girls, and how Harry Potter succeeds in every way that Twilight fails. (I heard about this rant from one of my friends who takes her class!)

    This isn't to say that all INFJ 1s are like that, since not all INFJ 1s care about politics. But I think they do seem a little more uptight than other INFJs. I had an INFJ roommate who may have been either a 4 or a 9w1 and she walked around with a dreamy smile on her face everywhere she went -- whereas INFJ 1s always look pretty focused, I've noticed. How can you not be, if you walk around noticing everything that's out of place, wherever you go? (And before you say I'm biased, I'm a 1w2 also and I know from experience!)

    I would imagine that on the other hand, 4s would act like my mom did when she was a teenager: belligerently unique. Wearing a big metaphorical sign that says "I march to a different drummer". A lot more self-focused than an INFJ 1 would be, since INFJ 1s are so obsessed with everything that needs fixing in the world.

    ^Your description sounds VERY much like me and I'm damn sure I'm a 4w5. Are you sure about your mother's enneatype?
