The Four INFJ Subtypes


There are four INFJ subtypes

The four INFJs represent different paths you can walk as an INFJ. You’ve been told an INFJ has dominant introverted intuition, auxiliary extraverted feeling, but in reality, how much you use a function depends on what path in life you are currently on.

The red INFJs

Enneagram Sx – Seven

Intuition and Judging has given this type a strong curious resolve and a strong sense of proactive vision. This INFJ is quite the visionary: they see and imagine their future and they move with conviction towards it. The visionary drive of these INFJs gives them a sense of bravery, a courage to make decisions, and to take actions that would frighten any SJ.

This INFJ needs strong nerves and trust in their ideas and focus and resolve in making their idea real. A big issue for this INFJ is giving into temptations and easy gratification. To let them be distracted by fun and games.

The blue INFJs

Enneagram four, one

Feeling and introversion gives this type a strong sense of stability and conscientiousness. This INFJ is highly invested in their decisions and their actions. Why do I do what I do? In feeling, this INFJ finds warmth, compassion, and care for the world. This INFJ cares a great deal about the feelings and values they carry.

They are seekers searching for their purpose. They are artists who seek intrapersonal awareness, knowledge of their own feelings, understanding of their identity and calling. Blue types are lead by curiosity and to the blue INFJ, nothing is of more curiosity than understanding humanity, life, and existential matters. Who we are and why we are here.

The green INFJs

Enneagram two, eight

Feeling and judging gives this INFJ their voice. This INFJ is lead to call, to speak, to communicate, to talk, to feel, to engage, to have an impact on the world. The green INFJs are concerned with being listened to, to making a difference in other people’s lives. They may struggle with understanding what people want and need to be happy. What can I do or say to make the world better for the people I care about?

The green INFJs feel a strong tug to do something good for the people around them. But they don’t want to just do or say anything – they want to speak the right thing. They want to ensure what they say can make other people’s lives better. So they think about how to say things, how to speak, and how to act to reach others, running through simulations in their heads.

The yellow INFJs

Enneagram 5, Sp

The yellow INFJs are distanced and detached from others, looking at the world from an outsiders perspective. Preferring to watch but not engage, the yellow INFJs desire to understand the world, to see it for what it is, to gain perspective, clarity, and existential awareness.

The yellow INFJ is philosophical, a musing person, who looks at the world with squinting eyes. The yellow INFJ is a peaceful, loving person, that believes in kindness, nonviolence, and peace. Yellow INFJs help bring greater understanding of life and death, and help us cope with difficulty and challenge, by giving clarity to make the world and it’s complexity more comprehensible.
