50 INFJ Mantras to Get You Through The Day

I’m not one to focus on Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) generalizations because I don’t believe one personality type can truly define someone. However, I can’t help but appreciate how those same MBTI generalizations can bring people together and help them feel understood, especially when it comes to the rare INFJ.

As the creator of a blog focused on the introvert personality type, I know how tempting it is to want to believe that MBTI results are the end-all, be-all. It’s easier than accepting that there’s no life hack that can figure out our complex mind through one measly test, let alone define someone else’s.

We’re all here to learn, connect, and do our best to understand each other. And frankly, we don’t need more introvert content that places us into small, separated boxes.

The Introverted Intuitive

I created this blog post with Carl G. Jung’s idea of the Introverted Intuitive in mind. As a result, you’ll find excerpts from a recorded interview with Carl G. Jung, the “Father of Modern Analytical Psychology” himself.

He referred to personality typing as “just sort of a skeleton to which you have to add the flesh. It is a means to an end. It only makes sense when you deal with practical situations.”

With that in mind, I’m confident there are INTJ’s, INFP’s, INTP’s, and even intuitive ambiverts (or extroverted introverts) that can relate to some, if not most of these INFJ struggles. As an INFJ myself, I hope you find these mantras helpful in your everyday life–no matter where you fall on the personality spectrum.

INFJ's have it rough--Carl G. Jung, The Father of Modern Analytical Psychology, said it himself, referring to all Introverted Intuitives (the INTJ, INFP, INTP, and intuitive ambivert personalities included). So whether you're intuitive and/or introverted looking for introvert quotes or just relatable introvert problems, this is the right post for you!

For The Isolated Introverted Intuitive

“What [they see] are [the] most uncommon things. [They don’t] like to talk of them if [they’re] not a fool. Because [they] would spoil [their] own game by telling what [they see]. Because people won’t understand it.” – Carl G. Jung

        I really love this!! It made me, a 56 year old single (divorced) woman with 4 kids, feel validated. As an INFJ it seems I’m so often ignored, except when someone wants something and I’m made to feel that what I feel is….🙄… Does that emoji communicate? It’s like my kids say … it’s just mum, here she goes again as they roll their eyes.

        What makes it harder for me, I think, is my history. After finally getting away from (divorcing) my secretly violent narcissistic husband after 20+ years who CONSTANTLY told me things like “you’re not good enough”, “you’ll never ….”, ” no one else will ever love you” etc etc I believe them.

        Then after finally finding work and, at 39 planning a career for myself I ended up, after 3 accidents…. None of which were my fault… I ended up unable to work, in lots of pain a lot of the time and with barely enough money from the disability pension to support myself and my children. My son got me to figure out what I was, an INFJ, I’m still not sure why he wanted me to do it. But I can DO relate to almost everything in this post and am looking forward to reading more of your posts. See, I’ve gotten to a place where I feel guilty that I can’t contribute to society, it’s hard for me to help my kids, in fact have to ask them for help and that’s tough.

        I’m already sensitive but when all four of my children throw me on a scrap heap and barely talk to me 10cc and can spend my day in a bath is years (if I had a bath, lol)

        You, somehow, give me hope. I don’t know how because I have no hope for my future. Im not sure whether to laugh or cry at this moment. As an INFJ AND a CREATIVE and a PISCES (we are an emotional lot) I’M LOST and alone and it feels like my creativity has dried up.

        BUT, I’m hoping if I read more of your blog posts I may just get a glimmer of a smile…that will be a start…something different from the tears I’ve cried, the indifference I’ve been on the receiving end of and the negativity of the one person who has offered advice.

        So, THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart… Angela

          Angela, thank you so much for being vulnerable and sharing your story. I know how hard that must be after being married to a narcissist. Narcissists are disgusting, and I’m so glad you’re safe now. Please know that he was always wrong about you–you are enough, even with a disability pension and help from your kids. The hardest thing to do is ask for help. No narcissist will ever admit that. No able-bodied person that looks down on people with disabilities will ever admit that. And I’m glad you know that no trauma is your fault. You are an INFJ, a CREATIVE, and a lovely Pisces human being, and I’m so grateful that you stumbled upon this post and left this beautiful message for others to read and feel less alone! So THANK YOU, truly!!!

    I am an INFJ and I love these mantras. Thank you.

    I particularly relate to “I’m allowed to feel bitter” and “I’m allowed to feel resentment” at the moment because I am continually being told I am negative by certain people in my life (mostly my latest ex) when I express any of these feelings.

    I am 62 and so wish I had delved into my personality type much earlier, it would have explained so much but as they say, it is never too late 🙂

      I’m so glad you can find some reassurance reading these mantras 🙂 you deserve to feel whatever you feel, and you shouldn’t have to deal with guilt on top of that.

      It truly is never too late–your life could always get better & your perspective more clear!
