INFJs Are More Likely to.. (INFJ Would You Rather)

INFJ: Would You Rather?

It’s fair to say that when it comes to personality type, no two people are the same. For the INFJ population, there are many behaviors, preferences and experiences that are disagreed upon. However, in some situations, their stereotypical thought processing can lead to very similar probabilities in decision-making and taste.

1. Would INFJs rather foresee the future or change the past?

With introverted intuition and extroverted sensing combined, the INFJ personality type is much more apt to focus on future prospects over past memories. While they utilize their past experiences to shape a more enjoyable future for themselves, they’re not the type to reminisce all too often.

And so, it’s fair to say that most INFJs would probably be more likely to opt for foreseeing the future rather than changing the past. Besides the fact that they already use their own subconscious future projections to imagine what the future holds, INFJs also rarely live in regret.

They accept the past for what it is, who it has made them and the life lessons they’ve learned along the way. Although they could probably save themselves a lot of turmoil with the ability to change the past, they most likely wouldn’t change it if they were given the opportunity.

2. Regret or Eavesdrop?

Would INFJs rather be able to take back anything they say or hear any conversation that is about them? When given the floor to speak their mind, it’s not uncommon for the INFJ to open up about more than they originally anticipated.

Private by nature, when this reserved personality type finds themselves feeling comfortable around someone interested in what they have to say, they often walk away regretting sharing so much information about themselves.

However, similar to being given the chance to change the past, ironically, INFJs probably wouldn’t go back and change what they said; even when their words are taken in the wrong context. On the flip side, listening into other people’s conversations about them would seem enticing to most INFJs.

Known for their interest in the way other people think combined with being slightly nosey at times, this type is always wondering how others perceive them, making the choice to be given the ability to hear others' conversations about them extremely tempting.

3. Would INFJs rather travel alone or with friends?

Known for their lone wolf persona, the INFJ type is never hesitant to do things by themselves. When it comes to traveling, although out of their comfort zones, most INFJs would probably prefer to take the leap to venture out on their own accord.

Regardless if they have people who they consider extremely close friends or family, this type can have a hard time adhering to other people’s schedules for too long of a time. Besides needing their own schedules and the ability to do things at their own pace, the empath INFJ type is extremely sensitive to other people’s energies, and can quickly become drained when forced to spend too much time without catching their breath.

Not to mention, traveling to the INFJ is usually a different experience compared to other types. With a preference of learning about culture, people and exploring nature, INFJ’s would never survive an all-inclusive resort-style trip with a group of acquaintances.

4. True love or 1 million dollars

Would INFJs rather wake up one day to have found true love or win 1 million dollars? Now, this one is a little tricky. Depending on the life experiences of the specific INFJ and where they’re at in their lives, either option could drastically change the course of their life.

While some INFJs would claim that they’re happy with their life of single-solitude, and others already finding themselves in happy relationships, the 1 million dollar win would give them the opportunity to live out some of the dreams they’ve played over and over within their imaginations.

However, for the sake of their overall lack of materialistic prescriptions on life and their hopeless romantic beliefs surrounding love, a fairytale love story would probably win over the INFJ’s heart. Most people with this type understand the fact that money can’t buy happiness, and that with love, anything is possible, even if it’s not always true.

5. Would INFJs rather be obviously under-dressed or overdressed?

There’s nothing that could make the INFJ feel more uncomfortable when at a social gathering than being the center of attention. Showing up to a business-casual social setting in jeans and a baggy T-shirt sounds terrifying to most people, especially the INFJ who often intentionally tries to go unnoticed.

However, arriving at a laid back get-together wearing too fancy of a dress or a suit and tie can be all that much worse. In fact, when it comes to over-dressing, the terror creeps in all that much more. INFJ’s hate to seem like they’re trying too hard, and so, if they had the choice, they’re more likely to opt for an under-dressed scenario.

6. Would INFJs allow everyone access to their thoughts or their internet history?

Now, it’s fair to say that both spaces would be very scary territory for anyone that’s not an INFJ to visit. With a combination of both curious and wandering minds, both the INFJ’s thoughts and internet history are probably filled with philosophical concepts and questions that most people wouldn’t be able to wrap their heads around.

Their ever-expanding wonderment of the world and the people in it make for a very interesting environment within the INFJ’s head and browser. However, in the grand scheme of things, no matter how terrifying it would be for this type to allow someone to creep through their internet history, INFJs would never want anyone to have the ability to read their thoughts.

In fact, like we mentioned previously, this personality type is all too familiar with the regret that follows when sharing the bare minimum of their thoughts with someone else. Plus, if someone were given the ability to read the INFJ’s mind, they may not ever recover.

7. Would INFJs rather lose their sight or their memories?

Just as the INFJ would never want to turn back time and change their past, memories don’t serve as much of a purpose for this personality type as it does with others. In fact, despite ruminating about certain experiences days after, it’s rare for them to dive back down memory lane in order to look back on old times.

In fact, most INFJs actually have horrible memories to begin with. On the flip side of things, the INFJ’s extroverted sensing and introverted intuitive functions require constant uptake of external stimuli, with sight being one of the main processors.

Of course, the ability to see is one that we often all take for granted, yet for the observant and curious INFJ, the loss of sight could be considered a life-or-death situation.

8. Would INFJs rather have universal respect or unlimited power?

In most cases, with power comes respect. Yet for the INFJ, power isn’t respectable unless it is rooted in morals and kindness. In fact, for this personality type universal respect and unlimited power are not far from being one in the same.

And so, when it comes to the options of either or, the INFJ type would most likely opt for the respect side of things. However, if the INFJ were to be given unlimited power in the world, with the ability to change the course of humanity for the better, respect would almost be guaranteed.

Of course, not everyone thinks like the INFJ, with many disagreeing on their at-times “woo-woo” viewpoints and perspectives. However, with unlimited power, this empathetic type would most likely win over the population through their need for equality and need for good-will across the board.

9. Would INFJs rather be surrounded by people who constantly brag or complain?

Due to their habit of brain-picking and trying their best to understand all walks of life on a deeper level than most are willing, most times it doesn’t matter how people act, as long as the INFJ is able to keep their distance when observing.

However, when it comes to being surrounded by a certain crowd on a regular basis, such as colleagues, fellow students, or even family members, the INFJ type can become seriously affected by other people’s energies.

While there’s not much of a difference between bragging and complaining to the INFJ, they’d probably be more apt to choose bragging due to the sense of optimism surrounding a boasting mindset.

Although they enjoy helping others who feel they’re at a crossroads in life, one thing this type can’t handle for long is someone with a never-changing victim mentality. And lastly..

10. Would INFJs rather keep their personality type or change it?

The impossible question that almost everyone with this personality type has probably pondered at least once or twice.. To stay an INFJ or to not stay an INFJ? The bittersweet experiences that come with being born into this personality type make this hypothetical choice rather impossible to answer with certainty.

However, despite the struggles, harsh lessons, and the loneliness that comes with being one of the rarest personality types of the MBTI, it’s all the INFJ has ever known. And although other personality types may seem like they have it easier in certain areas, most people with the INFJ personality type wouldn’t give up their incredible gifts and abilities that are unique to them.
