Breaks down each section of the INFJ profile to see how well it relates to me.

From the INFJ Profile

“Beneath the quiet exterior, INFJs hold deep convictions about the weightier matters of life. Those who are activists — INFJs gravitate toward such a role — are there for the cause, not for personal glory or political power”

You know how I like to post rants about things that are important to me? This is why. I spend a lot of time thinking about all the issues in the nation and how I can attempt to fix them. It’d be cool to get the credit for changing the world and all, but the point is to change it. If I can do that, even if no one knows about it, I’ll be content.

“INFJs are champions of the oppressed and downtrodden. They often are found in the wake of an emergency, rescuing those who are in acute distress. INFJs may fantasize about getting revenge on those who victimize the defenseless. The concept of ‘poetic justice’ is appealing to the INFJ”

Very much so. Really, anything poetic in life is appealing to me. I love symbolism, resolution, confirmation, etc. I definitely gravitate towards people that need my help. That’s part of why I never make friends with the popular crowd. I spend all my energy making friends with the nerds, the emo kids, the druggies, and the socially awkward people. They make more sense to me. See, with people like that, there’s a problem I can help them with. The popular kids either don’t have anything wrong with them, (doubtful), or they have no idea what it is or that they need to fix it. I’m not good at pointing that out to the clueless- I’m just there to help when someone wants it.

In all my stories, I love for there to be some sort of disaster, and then the hero jumps in at exactly the right moment to save the day. It’s a little cliche, but again, it’s “poetic.” That statement can also apply to my life, however. I only jump in and start leading when I’m needed, i.e. at the moment of “acute distress.” But I will always save the day if no one else can.

I wouldn’t really say that I fantasize revenge on those who victimize the defenseless. Most of the time, I let people fend for themselves. Though I guess in that regard, I consider them to have defensive ability. In the case of hurting babies though, (coughcoughabortioncough), I am not apathetic. If you kill a baby, you deserve to be shot. But I wouldn’t do it. I’m usually pretty forgiving and understanding. I would just hope that you realize the extent of your evil so it doesn’t become a pattern.
