What are the Traits of INFJ Personality Type

An advocate (INFJ) is somebody with Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging personality traits. They approach life with deep thoughtfulness and vivid imagination. Their vision, values, and a silent, structured code of humanism guide them in everything.

INFJs are the rarest personality types. They still manage to leave their mark on the world and in the hearts of people. They have strong idealism and discipline; they are not idle dreamers; they take steps to achieve their goals and leave a lasting imprint.

They have unique personality traits, making them versatile and complex. They can speak to great lengths with passion and conviction when they are standing for their ideals. They are usually soft-spoken, preferring peace over challenging others.

Although they are reserved, they communicate warmly and sensitively. Their emotional honesty and insight can make a strong impression on the people around them. They maintain deep, authentic relationships with others and take great care of others’ feelings. They take time out for themselves to recharge, decompress, and process their own feelings and thoughts.

They may find themselves under stress when faced with criticism and conflict. They have the best intentions, but they may get frustrated when others don’t’ value them. To them, even constructive criticism may be hurtful.

Now let’s look into the description of INFJ anime characters:

Armin Arlert from Attack on Titan

Armin Arlert will do whatever it takes to make a positive mark for the future of humanity. Armin is extremely protective of his friends and highly empathetic, exhibiting the INFJ anime character’s true spirit. Though he is calculative and composed on the battlefield, he is also attuned with his sensitive and emotional side. He finds it hard to kill, even though it is the right thing to do at that time. He is often seen visibly shocked and emotional after a fight ending in bloodshed. He is adamant about keeping his humanity and never becoming blind to others’ suffering–even his foes. Armin also struggled with shyness and low self-esteem initially, but he transforms and evolves into a version of himself that unapologetically owns all his traits.

Norman from The Promised Neverland

Norman is an orphan boy, waiting to be adopted by his “forever family.”  One fine day, the reality of his existence is unveiled to him; he has to find his escape to freedom along with his siblings. 

Norman has the strategic, long-term thinking of the INFJ along with the ‘others first’ and empathetic approach. Irrespective of the difficulty of the situation, Norman always prioritizes the welfare of those around him over his own comfort. He outsmarts almost all the opponents due to his complicated, far-reaching strategies. His understanding and insights about people are advanced than his age; considering he is only eleven years old.

Kawora Nagisa from Neon Genesis Evangelion

Kawora is more like an angel than a human being. He is truly an INFJ, emotional and empathetic. He talks in universal terms instead of personal terms; he is focused on understanding humanity and their perspectives. He is warm and emotionally open, part of the reason Shinji was comfortable enough to open up. 

Kawora is also drawn to the concepts of human suffering and loneliness and seeks to understand others’ deeper feelings. His emphasis and curiosity to understand the psychology of others is an iconic INFJ trait.

Izuku Midoriya from My Hero Academia

Izuku Midoriya is a visionary and compassionate character. He has tailored his life around one goal: to become a hero that brings a ray of hope and peace to everyone. Like a typical INFJ, Deku loves spending most of his time strategizing his next move. However, on the battlefield, extra time is not always allotted. 

In the entire series, Mirdoriya gets a grip on his inferior Extraverted Sensation and learns to respond quickly in situations against his enemies. His kindness, strategic planning, and visionary thinking are classic examples of a functional INFJ in the form of a superhero.

Naomi Misora from Death Note

Naomi is a former FBI agent and is exceptionally famous for her high investigative skills. Although she makes it into the show for a small part only, Naomi’s character is critical.  She has powerful insights into people, particularly Light Yagami. Her ability to look beyond the superficial masks is comparable with the deductive skills of L. 

Naomi is extremely intelligent, but her feelings can sometimes cloud her investigations. She thinks things too deeply–often the people she loves, a common INFJ trait. Due to this, she was manipulated by Light Yagami to undermine her abilities.

Sosuke Aizen from Bleach

Sosuke Aizen is polite and intelligent and makes a great example of a  villainous INFJ character. He is apparently friendly and sociable, but he conceals his manipulative and means inner self under the social mask. Sousuke will do anything to achieve his missions, even if he has to play with others’ feelings or murder them. 

He sees this world as a chess game, and it is difficult to see his plans without picturing the end product and tracing back to see how his actions triggered the other until he achieved his goal. He has a broad vision of how the world ought to be and then plays people emotionally to act according to his scheme.

This is the trait exhibited by unhealthy INFJs, and ends justify the means scheme to life. While apparently, they look warm and friendly, on the inside, they can be manipulating and cunning. 

Yuki Sohma Fruits Basket

Several INFJs share the same struggles as Yuki Sohma did in the social environment of the school. He appears to be charming on the exterior but struggles with intense feelings of loneliness and insecurity. As a typical INFJ, he finds it hard to cope in the sensory environment around him. His room is messy, and he makes mistakes often as he is more indulged in the thoughts and ideas than the physical world around him.

Yuki wants to make friends but often find it hard to start conversations. 

Itachi Uchiha from Naruto Shippuden

IIn the initial episodes of Naruto, he shows slight usage of Extraverted Feeling; however, as the show goes on and his backstory is revealed, he shows the feeling function almost constantly in his younger years. . 

After a series of trauma, he decides to switch the feelings off and is seen in the Ni-Ti cycle. Nonetheless, the feeling functions show up every now and then when he prioritizes others over himself. He is a frequent deep thinker; he wonders the meaning of death, life, and other patterns and outcomes. He uses analogies and  symbolism to express himself.

Mayuri Shiina from Stein: Gate

Mayuri is a childlike and innocent character; she has perceptiveness that is easily overlooked if not seen closely. She may have a naive demeanor, but she has incredible insights into people. She also has a strong understanding of how people feel, making her empathetic.

She speaks in analogies and symbolism, highlighting her Introverted Intuition and is determined to maintain harmony and to prevent any conflicts, showing her Extraverted Feeling.

Jinora from The Legend of Korra

Jinora is quiet and reserved but highly insightful and exhibits firm conviction and courage. She has an inherently great affinity to the spiritual world and is the only human capable of interacting with spirits. Her understanding of the spiritual world and human nature is a true reflection of an INFJ at its full potential. She is a wonderful example of an INFJ mentor or counselor. She is calm, wise, and patient with people – she can guide people in the spirit world and feel their individual energies.

Aerith Gainsborough from Final Fantasy VII

Aerith is a ‘Ni” dominant character; she is highly intuitive and decisive with her intuition. She is always making predictions of what will happen next and what someone said or meant using her intuition. She can easily read people’s emotional condition with her feeling function, and she genuinely cares for society for its morals, respect, and values. She is not Fe-dominant though, she is not in her feelings all the time.
