Introduction to the Idealist Temperament - Teacher, Counselor, Champion, Healer

Having recently taken the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator Test, which is based on Carl Jung's typological theories, I learned I was an INFJ - one of the rarest of the 16 personality types, said to account for between 1% - 3% of the population.

Classified as The Counselor, in the psychology book "Please Understand Me: Character and Temperament Types" by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates, INFJ personalities are part of a group they categorise with an Idealist Temperament.

This group includes:

ENFJ - Teacher
INFJ - Counselor
ENFP - Champion
INFP - Healer
