The INFJ can be quiet and unassuming if not stimulated in a group. They may appear disinterested but below the surface are a thousand ideas waiting to come out. Once those ideas are tapped they often become the life of the party. They can also shut down just as fast as they start up which often confuses people.

In relationships the INFJ can create problems out of their desire to eliminate them. They have such an over-riding want for harmony that they often try too hard to avoid discord. INFJ’s will ignore inner burdens in an effort to avoid the external, creating a pressure filled potential for explosion. Once the INFJ learns to articulate its want for harmony the achievement is that much more attainable.
