I’m so glad you guys addressed this! I’m a millenial INFJ and I find myself very perceiver-like. I like having an organized environment but I feel this push-pull between Judging and Perceiving. I’m in an academic context so being an intuitive in this context isn’t much as an issue as opposed to being rigid or flexible, at least in my experience. Sometimes I find myself using Authenticity “this is something that I feel very strongly about” and Accuracy “I think this action is reasonable because…” to communicate to perceivers, which I like that I can do.
Then you bring up baby boomer INFJs and millenial INFJs and I very much see the difference. Being very perciever-like I’ve often thought to myself that they were to rigid themselves, but at the same time I knew there was this generational difference. However, I do find myself thinking along the lines of “out with the old, in with the new!” When it comes down to it, sometimes other people may look at me and think I’m very rigid, in a way similar to how I “look” at GenX INFJs. It’s a very delicate balance. What others don’t see about me is I think in pictures and the picture in my mind changes as I get more information about whatever I’m thinking about. I’ve often found myself thinking “Wait, you’re not taking enough Perspectives!” You hit the nail on the head
I’m glad this topic came up in a podcast, it’s something that’s recently been on my mind. I would love to hear more on this in the podcast
Thanks for your comment Stephen! You bring up some interesting points.
As an INFJ Gen. Xer I have found myself resting more into my Judger function. When I was young, I can see that Perceiver would have seemed more appealing to me. But that was mainly because I wanted to be the societal rebel who didn’t balance her checkbook. (I still don’t balance my checkbook, but I am frightfully responsible.)
It would be interesting to see how the cognitive functions shift as one ages.
I’m glad the podcast resonated so strongly with you. I’m sure the subject will come up again. 🙂
Thanks so much for taking my question! I work in higher education, and millennials are often a topic of interest since they are the population we mostly serve. It’s interesting to think about which personality types might have an easier or more difficult go of things in the world based on current cultural norms. I will definitely be thinking about this more.
Thanks again for sending in the question, Tracey! You have given us something to ponder. 🙂
