Be your real INFJ self without feeling frustrated
INFJs are empathetic, value driven, and great at making plans. Because INFJs are great at seeing themselves, they are also great at seeing everything. The most difficult thing for INFJs is to believe everyone else can’t see what they see. It’s like INFJs are wearing glasses that no one else can access. This course will help you understand other peoples’ limitations relative to your own.
This course will also help INFJs to combine their perfectionist tendencies with their quest for spiritual fulfillment. The INFJ is full of seeming contradictions. For example, the INFJ sees through people almost immediately, yet the INFJ is reserved and slow to share the knowledge that comes so easily to them. Those contradictions make the INFJ complicated but also full of visions and solutions. This course shows you how to make the best of those traits both at work and at home.

What People are Saying about this Course:
This course has been so great! I can't wait to try this new perspective out in life from tomorrow onwards and see how it affects my relationships, with friends and colleagues and bosses alike.
I really loved the INFJ course. Loved! It was so useful for me and honestly, you helped me find the narrative I needed to feel like I can be a part of things without having to completely compromise myself. I went to work today reframing everything. What a dream!
Just want to thank you so much for this course (I decided to gift it to myself as part of celebrating my 30th birthday in about one month)... I am on the third video and I can already see the potential magnitude that it may have to impact my well-being and fulfillment, truly.

Day One: Relationships: How to cultivate and care for important relationships
- Learn to find someone’s type very quickly using your natural intuition about people. Knowing others’ types will help you craft realistic expectations for each person in your life. More than any other type, an INFJ is able to treat each person differently depending on their individual needs and personality. Which means that an INFJ needs to know what someone’s strengths and weaknesses are so the INFJ does not demand too much from that person. You will find that it’s freeing to not expect things of people they are not capable of delivering.
- Choose the most meaningful friendships. No one understands you 100% so find people who can reliably connect with you on different aspects of your thinking. Find people who understand different parts of you and avoid demanding more from them than they can give.
- Cultivate the ideal family. We’ll talk about who to marry (don’t marry someone who is emotionally needy – you’re an F, but not that kind of F!) and how to get along with family members (just because you can see clearly what they should be doing doesn’t mean they want you to tell them.)
Day Two: Happiness: How to reframe and aim for fulfillment.
- As an INFJ you have an incredible power to define and hold tight to your values. You are great at seeing other people’s values and you understand how to motivate and communicate with people. This makes you well loved by employees, and family members alike.
- You’re like an onion, with many layers, and you are fulfilled when you get to explore those layers. For INFJs it truly is about the journey more than the destination.
- Get good at giving yourself time alone without feeling guilty. It’s imperative that you are able to take time to think – thinking time is a big part of what makes you who you are. And all the traits that make you great in relationships require you to have a lot of alone time to process information.
Day Three: Career. Find a workplace that is consistent with your values.
- Find your most natural fit at the office. INFJs are very, very good managers. INFJs bring the unique combination of the ability to get things done with the ability to create fulfilling environments for their direct reports.
- Learn to pick organizations that fit. INFJs have a hard time finding work they like because employers pay employees to operate under the companies values instead of their own. But an INFJ is not able to do that — it’s ethically unsound to an INFJ. So while an INFJ makes a great manager, when the INFJ dislikes the values senior management brings to the table the INFJs are unable to represent that as a manager. It’s an INFJ conundrum: very competent but competent in a system they hate.
- Make solid plans. In this session will will make a plan for creating a work environment that is consistent with your values, and, when that environment feels hopeless, we will create an exit plan that you can use — as many times as you need to — to get a new job more consistent with who you are and what you have to offer.
Day Four: Question and Answer
