The INFJ Personality Type takes nothing lightly, and is known to be a deep sea diver. You are not satisfied with just the quick summary or simple one-liner. You want to understand things fully and completely.
- 3. A dislike for distractions
The INFJ Personality Type prefers focus and mental discipline. You train your thoughts and your thinking. You dislike being interrupted in the middle of your thought process and like to tune out distractions when possible.

When there is conflict or discord, you step in to resolve it. You try to hear all sides and to make sure everyone can come to an understanding.

INFJs try to make sure that their system and data can be used to predict future events. You use either consciously or unconsciously, the experience and knowledge you have gained to come to an understanding about what will happen next.
- 8. Stoic temperament
INFJs do not show their feelings to the outer world. If you are upset, you are more likely to withdraw than talk about it. The INFJ approach is to accept whatever happens and to put on a strong and positive approach. You don't let anything get you down.
