INFJ – is one of the personality types in the Myers Briggs Personality tests, which are based upon the work of Carl Jung.
I am an INFJ. I have a strong sense of justice, intuition, right and wrong, a capacity for empathy and motivation matters to me. These strengths, are usually far more developed in INFJ’s, than average.
I read an article the other day, how when narcissistic people take these tests, their delusion based answers, can give them a result of being an INFJ.
‘Sensitivity’ is something that is often confused and plays into this delusion. Being oversensitive to criticism, and always reacting badly and immaturely, is narcissism. Whereas, being aware and sensitive of the needs and emotions of others, is empathic sensitivity. There is a huge difference between these. The former, is all about self and self serving. The latter is about others, and others centred.
A popular INFJ page, has posts which are more narcissistic based motivations, than empathy based motivations. They include hurting others, and a sense of entitlement to do that, with no conscience and no remorse.
The posts are often ‘me me me’ based. With little thought as to the effect of this on others. Doesn’t sound empathic to me. Sounds narcissistic to me.
Having considered the posts and the reaction to one post – where I disagreed – it became clear – the admin and other commenters, were in fact narcissistic in their attitudes and responses. They justified their harmful behaviours. Classic narcissism.
This page even describes the page as ‘the biggest INFJ page’, in the first sentence of it’s description. Ego, boasting, ‘size orientated’ – all sound narcissistic to me.
I read this article below, and it validates my insight into this. And why some people who claim to be INFJ’s are in fact narcissistic. Just the quiet, covert type of narcissists. Not the grandiose, extrovert type.
So, I no longer follow that INFJ page. Because they lack insight and honesty. And encourage harmful behaviours. Narcissists often fail to have self insight and have a sense of entitlement to harm. It’s always a huge red flag to me.
And I don’t involve myself in that.
