Taking a glance at this list, I’m sure you can categorize some people you know into the list above. The MTBI goes into much more depth, but this is just a basic explanation for each personality type.
So after taking the test, I fell under the “Advocate” role. Also known as “The Mystic” or “The Counselor”. My MBTI is INFJ-T. This stands for Introversion (I), Intuition (N), Feeling (F), and Judgement (J). Due to the rarity and complexity of the INFJ personality type, it only makes up 1-3% of the population. (-T) is a turbulent individual who is self-conscious and sensitive to stress. They are likely to experience a wide rant of emotions and to be success-driven, perfectionistic, and eager to improve.
An Advocate tends to see helping others as their purpose in life, and while they can be found doing charity work and engaging in rescue efforts, their real passion is to get to the heart of the issuance so that people need not be rescued at all. Advocates are creative with a vivid imagination and strong sense of compassion. They are insightful, seeing through dishonest and disingenuous behaviors. They are also able to how people and events are connect, and use that insight to get to the heart of the matter. They are inspiring and convincing. They are decisive and able to follow through on their ideas with willpower, conviction, and the planning necessary to see complex projects through to the end. They are determined and passionate. They are also altruistic and use their strengths for good. They can be sensitive, especially when someone criticizes or challenges their principles or values. They are highly vulnerable to criticism and conflict. Questioning their motives is the quickest way to get on their bad side. They are extremely private, and trusting new people can be a challenge. They are perfectionistic, often ignoring healthy and productive situations because they believe their may be something better down the road. They always need to have a cause, otherwise they’ll feel restless or disappointed. They can burn our easily if they don’t find a way to balance their ideals with the realities of day-to-day living.
When it comes to romantic relationships, Advocates look for something with depth and meaning. They will take the process of finding a partner seriously, and take the time necessary to find someone they truly click with. Once they’ve found someone, their relationship will reach a level of depth and sincerity that most people can only dream of. Getting to that point can be a challenge, since Advocates are perfectionistic and picky. They aren’t easily talked into something they don’t want. If a suitor tries to resort to manipulation or lying, an Advocate will see right through it, they have a low tolerance for inauthenticity. One of the things they find most important is establishing a genuine, deep connection with the people they care about. They cherish not just the act of being in a relationship, but what it means to become one with another person in mind, body, and soul. Advocates year for authenticity and sincerity in their friendships as well. They are unlikely to go for friendships of circumstance such as workplace social circles or chatting it up with the local barista, where the only thing they have in common in day-to-day familiarity. They seek people who share their passions, interests, and ideologies. They are likely to end up abandoning healthy friendships in their infancy in search of more perfect compatibilities.
Advocates struggle to begin a career early on because they see ten wildly different paths forward, each with its own intrinsic rewards, alluring but also heartbreaking because it means abandoning so much else. They need to find meaning in their work, to know that they are helping and connecting with people. They crave creativity too, and the ability to use their insight to connect events and situations. They are clever and can function in and work place, but need to be able to exercise their insightfulness and independence, learn and grow alongside people they are helping, and contribute to the well-being of humanity on a personal level.
Career Matches: Teacher, Artist, Writer, Actor, Physician, Musician, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Consultant, Human Resources, Alternative Medicine, Missionary, Entrepreneur, Social Worker, Non-Profit/Advocacy. Health care, Human Resources, Social Work, Clergy, and the Arts are the best fields for this personality type.
