Why Most INFJs Aren’t Afraid Of Dying

INFJs Don't Fear Death!?

The fear of the unknown is a fear that almost every personality type experiences in one way or another. Yet, when it comes to that unknown being the uncertainty humans hold in regards to what lies on the ‘other side’, some people find the idea of crossing over absolutely distressing. For the philosophical INFJ however, that expected fear doesn’t quite affect them the way it does for others.

Why Most INFJs Aren’t Afraid Of Dying

1. They spend time thinking about it

If there’s one thing the INFJ does best, it would be to thoroughly analyze the ins-and-outs of potentiality. With future-projecting being one of their favorite past-times, this psychic-like personality type ruminates, contemplates and imagines how certain future scenarios will play out in real time.

And for the most part, they’re usually pretty darn accurate. By using not only their minds and the details they pick up through their extroverted sensing functions, INFJ utilize their keen researching skills, to collect and compare data.

This is the exact same concept they use when it comes to envisioning what type or reality could be waiting for them on the other side. Rather than avoiding the concept of death as some people choose to do, most people with the INFJ personality type are rather infatuated by the idea.

This infatuation and interest is ultimately what drives them to continuously re-evaluate the picture they paint of the afterlife within their own minds. They love discussing these beliefs with others, diving into the theories of professionals, and questioning their own beliefs, hoping to reach the most fitting conclusion to act as a pillar to their underlying optimism. Which brings us to..

2. They hold a sense of optimism as to what’s on the other side

INFJs are considered one of the more spiritually-intune personality types. With a strong pull towards the concept of religion, spirituality and the metaphysical, this personality type holds a unique perception when it comes to the idea of what’s to come after this life.

Through their introverted intuition that allows them to filter through all the conscious possibilities, most people with this type come to the conclusion that it’s almost impossible to settle on the idea that consciousness dies with our physical bodies.

With the understanding that energy never dies, but rather transforms into new life, they hold a positive and confident outlook about there being much more to life than what we see here on earth. They can’t help but wonder and project the infinite amount of possibilities the afterlife holds.

And with so many religions deeming the human body as nothing but a vessel to learn the lessons provided in this physical classroom called earth, most INFJs can’t help but to think how wonderful it is to experience their consciousness free from their so-called meat suit, especially once their bodies can’t do what they used to.

3. They believe in the idea that they will reunite with loved ones

Speaking of the optimism they have in terms of what’s waiting for us all on the other side, INFJs can’t help but to believe in the reuniting of departed friends, family and soul-tribes when they cross over. With such an affinity to the metaphysical, most INFJs believe in the concept of mediumship and psychic abilities that allow some people access to loved ones on the other side.

In fact, most people of the INFJ type have probably found themselves going down the rabbit hole of this exact concept at one point in their lives. A rabbit hole that ultimately instilled their faith that the ones we’ve lost here on Earth are only merely a dimension away.

Of course, in moments of mourning and grieving, this concept only seems unfair and can even be difficult to remain devoted to. However, when it comes to evaluating what they think about the idea of when their own time comes to depart this plane of existence, the concept of being greeted by those who were so dearly missed makes the idea almost exciting - in the least morbid way possible.

4. They fear other’s deaths more than their own

Despite the INFJ’s hopeful ideology surrounding being reunited with passed-on loved ones, there’s still a fear surrounding the concept of death that INFJ’s can never get away from. Speaking of grieving a loss, INFJs can actually find themselves experiencing bouts of severe anxiety when it comes to the idea that their loved ones have the potential to cross-over before them.

While others may take more of an ignorance is bliss route to this idea, refusing to get into their heads about it at all, sometimes this ruminating personality type has no choice. Intrusive thoughts can come tumbling in despite everyone they cherish proving to be happy and healthy.

So while they can easily understand that death may not be something to fear, the concept of living the rest of this life without someone important to them gives them a sense of unease that can become a serious issue and source of anxiety.

5. If death weren’t a part of life, things would get tiresome

Through their analysis process in regards to the concept of ‘dying’, INFJs always have to think about the hypothetical consideration of what life would be like without the very thing people fear most. What life would be if humans lived 200, 500 or even a 1000-year lifetimes.

Or even the possibility of living indefinitely? What would happen if the human body was invincible against disease and aging. Or what if we had the choice to leave this plane of existence when we chose to? Within the constraints of INFJ imagination, everything goes.

And with that, they can easily calculate just how much more difficult this life would be if it didn’t have an ending. The lack of motivation, love and appreciation that would come with the idea that time doesn’t run out.

Just how mundane everything would be and how easily it would be to procrastinate trying new things. After diving down this series of thoughts, the idea that life ‘runs out’ ends up being quite a relief.

6. They see birth and death as two sides of the same coin

The idea of creating and birthing a new life into this world is not only fascinating, but would probably be deemed impossible if humans haven’t witnessed it time and time again. And just like everyone else, INFJ’s see birth as one of the most incredible gifts and abilities of the human race.

However, when it comes to death, not everyone has the same idea. While the idea of death is usually met with sadness and fear, INFJ’s view it through more of a philosophical lens with the idea that if birth is such a beautiful gift, that death might just be the same.

In fact, just as departing from this Earth comes with its own uncertainties and mental challenges, being brought into this world actually seems much more scary. Despite the excitement that comes with welcoming a new soul onto this Earth, it can be hard to believe that a precious untainted spirit will eventually learn all the difficult lessons this planet has to offer.

On the flip side, leaving this Earthly realm in a way frees you from all the harshness of this world, which comes with a sense of beauty of its own. And lastly,

7. They know they must have come from somewhere other than

Earth With such a deep sense of feeling like an outcast since the time they were small, the INFJ personality type can’t help but to feel as if they were sent here to play human only for a short while. Rooted in a feeling of unfamiliarity and discomfort, the human experience through the lens of an INFJ is known to be rather difficult.

In fact, some people with this personality type even claim to hold a deep longing to go ‘home’. A home that doesn’t exist here on earth. And with that concept, the reassurance that this existence is only temporary can actually put their worries of not fitting in at ease.

They take comfort in the belief that the 3D dimension here on earth is only a small piece to a vast puzzle that we don’t even have the consciousness or technology to grasp. And that within that ginormous interconnection of existences, universes, dimensions and realities, there is probably a place for them in which they feel much more at home.
