INFJ Cognitive Functions

INFJ Cognitive Functions

The mind of an INFJ is wired differently than other types. In the Myers-Briggs framework, each type comprises not just the four letters I-N-F-J but also four cognitive functions.

Their cognitive function stack:

  • Introverted Intuition (Ni) "Perspective"
  • Extraverted Feeling (Fe) "Harmony"
  • Introverted Thinking (Ti) "Accuracy"
  • Extraverted Sensing (Se) "Sensation"

The Driver Process: Introverted Intuition (Ni) - "Perspective"

The Driver Process: Introverted Intuition (Ni) - "Perspective"

Ni allows the INFJ to take a third-person perspective into their own mind.

Introverted Intuition displays as:

  • Seeing patterns and, over time, the patterns of patterns
  • Perceiving a set number of ways the mind forms patterns
  • Relative ease in shifting out of one’s own perspective and into someone else's
  • pattern-recognition to “get inside the heads” of other people; make predictions about what will emerge from those patterns
  • pattern-recognition to perceive or forecast long timelines

The Copilot Process: Extraverted Feeling (Fe) - "Harmony"

The Copilot Process: Extraverted Feeling (Fe) - "Harmony"

Fe usually shows up in the following ways:

  • Focuses on interpersonal dynamics
  • They want to keep morale up
  • Wants to get people’s needs met in order to keep them in a good state (so they don’t get into a bad state and thus affect the group)
  • Interested in concepts of culture and society’s effect on the individual

INFJs couple this Harmony process with their Perspectives flow state, which allows them to deeply “get” other people, they develop a strong empathic nature.

Introverted Thinking (Ti) - "Accuracy"

Introverted Thinking (Ti) - "Accuracy"

Ti is the data-centric or “techy” part of an INFJ.

Accuracy is focused on:

  • The data or information being reliable information, regardless of people’s emotions
  • What is true and accurate
  • An interest in data and technology
  • Getting some distance and space from people’s emotional experience

The Accuracy process can provide a much needed oasis from the psychic energy of other people. It creates a beautiful balance between Fe and Ti to help others in empathetic and informative ways.

Extraverted Sensing (Se) - "Sensation"

Extraverted Sensing (Se) - "Sensation"

Se gets the INFJ in touch with their body and the physical realm around them. It's their Blind Spot. Together with the type INTJ, they're living in a state of existence that INJs recount as a “continual out-of-body experience.” 

Sensation can show up as:

  • Physical overindulgence, e.g. addiction
  • Neglecting the body completely, e.g. never exercising
  • Over-exercising
  • Appreciation of sensual pleasures

INFJs should focus on Sensation daily as a form of self-care.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
