What is an INFJ?
Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging (INFJ) is one of the 16 personality types used by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. It’s made up of introversion, intuition, feeling, and judging. An INFJ is gentle, caring and concerned about people, while also abstract and big picture focused.
An INFJ is outgoing, generous, and warm with people. This is the “People person” charm that attracts others to them. However, they are also introverts. They find inner peace by spending time alone, and avoid large groups.
INFJs often learn best through concepts, and value ideas over physical objects. They rely on “gut feelings” and their own internal guidance system.
INFJs are easy going, kind, and good-natured. They are often highly intuitive, and pick up on the emotions and needs of those around them. However, they also are deep organizers, planning and budgeting meticulously, and can be impatient with mistakes. They (unfortunately) take offense more easily than most.
INFJs prefer planned structure to minimize unnecessary stress and are introspective, focused, and decisive. They are on-time, consistent, and make choices promptly.
When did you first discover that you were an INFJ?
I first learned I was INFJ around college time. I had taken a personality test, which led me to the Myers-Briggs type indicator.
At first, when I figured out that I was INFJ, I was extremely proud. I didn’t even know the label existed until then. The more I read about it, the more I realized how apt the label was for me.
Why did you decide to write an INFJ Book?
The INFJ personality is my passion, and in this book I have shared my passion with you. I have studied it, kissed it, and it has kissed me back. So it’s only fair that I spread the word about it—so to speak.
I co-authored dating books for ENTJs and INTPs because in romance, as in everything else, the rational side needs the intuitive side. It is a dance in perfect harmony. It is beauty and the beast. It is a picture that completes itself when you hold two jigsaw puzzle pieces together.
These books have a greater purpose. Our greatest passion is to help you. So we spent thousands of hours poring over our brains to find the best ways to do this.
And since I have my studies in psychology, I got to share my love and knowledge of the INTP and ENTJ personality types with thousands of fellow students. And I truly enjoyed doing it.
So it only made sense for me to do it again for your personality type.
As a PUA (pick up artist) trainer and community around the world, I get requests from other types to write about them. But I wouldn’t consider it until I felt that I had a story to tell that was meaningful and truly useful. And so I wrote this book.

It focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of the INFJ personality type, and I really like the author, Dario Nardi, for all the research he has done with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator questionnaire.
For those of you who don’t know, the Myers-Briggs questionnaire is very popular in the OPP field (Organizational Psychology and People Professions). It is a questionnaire that helps you know yourself and understand how you stay mentally alert, and what kinds of people you are away from home.
It has 16 different personality types broken into four groups … I call this the “superset of personality types” since each letter represents a personality type and the superset represents 16 personality types.
These personality types include the INFJ personality type, which is represented by the letter J.
The book explains these different personality types and helps offer insights into how to become better at something by knowing your typing … and the book simply offers insights into the strengths and weaknesses of the INFJ personality type.
