Only one percent of the population has this rare personality type.

The INFJ personality type is one of a total of 16 characters into which the Myers-Briggs personality analysis divides all people. The special thing about it: Only one percent of people are INFJs, yet they leave their mark on the world.

The letters "INFJ" stand for Introversion (I), Intuitive (N), Feeling (F) and Judging (J for "judging"). Famous personalities who belong to the INFJ type were, for example, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela or Mother Theresa.

INFJ people are very warm and friendly, but very complex natures. Their dominant function is introverted intuition and extraverted feeling. NFJs are loving but also complicated. They enjoy finding a common vision for everyone by inspiring others and developing new ways to achieve that vision. You are compassionate, idealistic, imaginative, and visionary. They are also sensitive and reserved, but are characterized by a high degree of determination and single-mindedness. They tirelessly fight for their beliefs and kick and represent their opinions, but this is rarely about personal gain. They often appear individualistic, closed and sometimes even aloof to others. If an INFJ is injured, it can lead to irrational actions.
