Why INFJs and INFPs Need an Intuitive Creative Process

INFJ personality types and INFP personality types love to try new methods of time management and productivity, and new methods of creativity. However, most of these methods don’t work for intuitive personality types. Instead, they make INFJ personality types and INFP personality types feel worse about themselves.

This is because INFJ personality types and INFP personality types are very different from the mainstream population, and so the mainstream methods just don’t fit them. Sometimes INFJs and INFPs can take one of these methods and use it for a short period of time, or hack it in such a way that they can make it fit for a little while. But over the long term they will tend to abandon these methods and then be right back where they started, and that means feeling frustrated and alone.

INFJs and INFPs want to find a method of being creative that works for them but it seems that everything they try just doesn’t work. What INFJ personality types and INFPs need to remember is that they are intuitive personality types, and so when it comes to creativity their brains work in a different way than most of the population.

INFJ and INFP creativity is truly outside of the box. They come up with things that people don’t expect, that challenge the belief systems of others, and that people don’t know what to do with.

I talk more about this in the video below:

I’m teaching a new class starting September 26 called Intuitive Creativity for INFJs and INFPs, and we’re going to be working together to learn how to tune into our own intuitive creative process.

We’ll be covering topics like:

Learning about your own “cycles” of creativity.

Where creative energy comes from, and how to harness it.

Activating our own unique creative power.
