    Default Professionally Confirmed INFJs

    At the risk of sounding elitist to those with delicate egos, I'd be interested in chatting with other, confirmed INFJs - and I don't mean 'confirmed by some shitty paid for test', I mean 'confirmed by speaking with Jungian or MBTI Step I, II or III practitioners'.

    I've been confirmed via both of the aforementioned methods, though the second was part of a coaching process I am currently going through (I was happy with the first typing).

    There's a lot of white noise surrounding the type; I wish to converse only with those who know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are an INFJ. Self-typing is not sufficient, I'm afraid. That's just the way it has to be, because I've known quite a few 'definite' INFJs who, when typed professionally, are anything but. Most then go on to throw a shit-fit - hilariously un-INFJ of them.

    Why do I ask this of you?

    I'm currently in the process of compiling GOOD, accurate information pertaining to the type. It's time to clear this mess up, as I (and other INFJs) out there are really bored with all the misinformation doing the rounds. We need good, credible INFJs to come forward and aid with the project. Alternatively, if another credible INFJ is already doing this I would gladly offer my support.

    I realise this thread is liable to sink, but it's all good. Contact me via PM if you'd prefer to avoid drawing attention to yourself.

    Cheers,

    - P

    Excellent

    If you don't mind, I'd love to contact you at some point in the not too distant future! Maybe this evening, for example :p

    This thread is cringeworthy.

    You do sound elitist, you're not really even trying to hide it. I'm telling you that for a fact.

    I am sorry, but I just feel like I have no choice but to accuse you of having no interest in compiling interest in INFJ as a type. We are all tired of seeing somebody suggest that they're the only true INFJ, and I note that you've gone to a great extent to ensure that nobody can actually fulfil your criteria. For example, while I am sure that a group of people on here will have been typed by a careers advisor or somebody in their business, MBTI practitioners are quite rare creatures in psychometric testing professionally, especially outside the US. This is a small forum where not everybody has money, but you have made it crystal clear that nothing less will suffice. Even if somebody had undergone such testing what would he then have to do? Link you to an interview or give you a certificate?

    I really despair when these kinds of threads/comments keep popping up. The real intent behind them is not hard to deduce.

    The real intent is to foster clarity through accuracy.

    I fully expected to receive the criticisms levelled at me here, which is a shame. Suggesting that I want to appear as the 'one true INFJ' is hilarious to me. There are tens of millions of INFJs out there in the big wide world. An INFJ doesn't care about being '''rare''' or special. That is yet another common misconception, largely propagated by mistyped Fi users who do care about individuality. Fe really doesn't.

    In my mind, there's nothing remotely cringe-worthy about trying to actively improve the muddied waters of typology; I thank you for your input and concerns, but within this context your post is not productive. Furthermore, I'm not particularly interested in having this discussion. If you dislike the thread, keep out. It's very simple.

    Get educated on the process of taking the MBTI. The ultimate decision lies not with a so-called "professional," but with the person who takes the MBTI.

    It's not a shame. In taking that position, it's best to peacefully accept the criticisms and roll with them.

    If I may, allow me to clear up your misconception. Enneagram type 4 "cares" about individuality. Since e4 is a common e-type found in both INFJ and INFP, you'll find such concerns amongst both populations.

    A good professional will of course lead you through a confirmation process, passing on type-related materials whilst also offering time and space to chew things over. Post typing chats and emails are also a thing. If after all of that you don't see the type fitting, I guess you go and get a second opinion. Masters of type will actually (in real time) highlight the emergent cognitive functions within the conversation you are having. Very cool indeed.

    Of course, all of this should go without saying.

    A fair point I suppose, but then I don't get behind the enneagram. The closest I got was something like '9w8', but that didn't quite nail it for me

    All in all, Fi cares about individuality a great more than Fe; I think that is a fair and valid point to make.

    I respectfully ask that the thread is not further derailed. I have made a simple request; if I have in any way offended anyone, I apologise.

    I see no valid reason for further discussion within the topic, unless said discussion pertains directly to my request.

    Thanks.

    Actually, have at it.

    I'm not particularly fussed :p just don't expect me to answer in a timely manner (or at all) because I'm incredibly busy right now.
