For those interested in Myers Briggs Personality Types – I am an INFJ:
“INFJs are creative nurturers with a strong sense of personal integrity and a drive to help others realize their potential. Creative and dedicated, they have a talent for helping others with original solutions to their personal challenges.
The Counselor (aka the INFJ) has a unique ability to intuit others’ emotions and motivations, and will often know how someone else is feeling before that person knows it himself. They trust their insights about others and have strong faith in their ability to read people. Although they are sensitive, they are also reserved; the INFJ is a private sort, and is selective about sharing intimate thoughts and feelings.”

“INFJs are innovative types who feel compelled to use their ideas to make the world a better place to live. Their desire to create something new could be as grand as designing the vision for an organisation, or as simple as speaking to someone in a way which leads the other to an important insight about themselves. Whatever their idea or vision, INFJs rarely come across as demanding and usually have a quiet, yet inspiring way about them.”

Reading these descriptions helps me to understand why it is that I am so drawn to helping innovative people realise their dreams.
