Hi. I’m an INFJ… and this is draft 473 of this post; the others were deleted because they weren’t perfect.
So, who said my post wasn’t perfect? Who was the dastardly editor who made me rewrite and rewrite until my fingers were bleeding? Why that was me of course! There will never be a harder taskmaster on an INFJ than the INFJ herself.
And for arguments sake, let’s imagine this post IS perfect and goes viral and scores 1mil views and likes and I become an internet sensation because of it… so what? Old news. It won’t make me happy. It won’t make me celebrate. Why? Because I’m already trying to make the next post even better.
Thats the INFJ way.
So, add this INFJ quirk to the profession of writing, a profession highly correlated with perfectionism and procrastination, rewriting and editing, despair and success. How can an INFJ ever possibly thrive in this career? How? Because the INFJ writer lives writing. We give our undivided obessesional attention to writing this piece. We give our everything to this piece… and you’d better believe it’ll come out perfect.
Even though we will never acknowledge it.
