What Each Myers-Briggs Type is Like As An Enemy

What Each Myers-Briggs Type is Like As An Enemy

No matter how likable you are, everyone is bound to make an enemy in life. Each person has a different approach to dealing with someone that they do not get along with. Here is how you might respond to an enemy according to your personality type.


Although INFJs can be extremely warm, and tend to avoid harming others, there is a flip side to them. As an enemy INFJs can be extremely manipulative and potentially hurtful. It often takes a great deal of pushing to get an INFJ to reach such a point, but it is possible. They have a strong sense of awareness, and are capable of manipulating others and seeing where their weak points are. As an enemy an INFJ may be very harmful, or they may just shut the person out of their lives as if they never existed. They are one of the most amazing types to have as your advocate, but can make a very spiteful enemy. Some of the most sinister people in history have been typed as INFJ, and also some of the kindest. They are like two sides of a coin, with the potential for greatness- either good or bad.



ENFJs spend most of their time finding ways to make others happy, and caring for their loved ones. Just like every type they are capable of anger and may even hold onto grudges for a long time. The ENFJ may find themselves feeling resentful if someone they have cared for, treats them poorly for a long time. They may be quick to anger if someone hurts one of their loved ones. If they feel someone is their enemy the ENFJ can be very aggressive towards this person. They may find ways to manipulate others into feeling negatively towards that person as well, and are very skilled at doing so. As friends they are caring, but as enemies they can be rather frightening.


The INFPs worst enemy is often themselves. They are usually harsher on themselves than they are other people. Although they tend to avoid conflict and dislike making enemies, they are capable of it just like any other type. INFPs as enemies often become this way because they see the person as dishonest or immoral in some way. Initially the INFP will probably attempt to avoid this person, and cut them out of their lives. In some cases the INFP will be very passive aggressive towards this person, and find subtle ways of dissing them. They may try to tear down their enemy’s character in front of others, so that people see exactly what the INFP sees. If they outright are aggressive towards an enemy they will probably feel very remorseful afterwards.


ENFPs tend to avoid making enemies with most people, since they have a pretty high likability factor. They are very friendly and tend to avoid harboring negative feelings towards others. If someone dislikes the ENFP they will probably feel very shocked and want to try to rectify the situation. They are most likely to try to and force the person to like them, by showing them their very best. It would take a lot for an ENFP to feel aggressive towards someone or feel the desire to harm them. They tend to avoid that sort of reaction and honestly just want to get along with everyone. If it comes to a point where an ENFP feels constantly threatened by someone’s differing morals, they may attempt to turn others against them, but that is a last resort.


INTJs as enemies are generally much more subtle. If they have reached a point of feeling like someone is completely against them, they will find a strategic way to attack. They often do not find the need to do this, nor do they find it useful. But if an INTJ does feel the need to make an enemy out of someone, they can do so very well. They are intelligent enough to plan a much more effective way of coming against an enemy. As friends they are logical and helpful, but as enemies that logic is used in a potentially damaging way.


ENTJs can make for very aggressive and resourceful enemies. They may attempt to use intimidation to make their enemies fearful of them. They are skilled at taking charge and if need be can be very good at putting pressure on others. They probably do not see most people as enough of a threat to even consider them an enemy. If they do they are probably very upfront about it, and do not feel a need to hide their dislike of someone.



INTPs are more likely to avoid someone that they dislike, and often do not enjoy making enemies. A mature INTP will find this pointless, and desire to squash the problem if possible. They are usually not afraid of someone and are definitely willing to stand up for themselves if need be. If someone is constantly causing trouble for them, they may try even harder to agitate this person in an effort to get them to knock it off. INTPs generally feel like they have much better things to occupy their thoughts than coming against an enemy. Their tendency to strive for precision can agitate others easily, but the INTP is not intending to make enemies, they just want to be precise.


Being that they are natural debaters, ENTPs may make a few enemies. They are often well-liked and have the ability to change people’s minds about them. If they find they have made a real enemy, the ENTP may try to smooth things over and express to this person that they are a great person to be around. If the relationship is not fixable however, the ENTP may attempt to manipulate their friends into disliking the other person. The ENTP may continue to poke at this person if they don’t come around, which will ultimately make things worse.


ISTJs tend to keep to themselves and strive to fulfill their duties. They often get along with people, and avoid unnecessary conflict. However, if the ISTJ feels like someone is encroaching in on their lives or possibly effecting their chance at a promotion, they may become angry. They are most likely to find subtle and strategic ways to overcome an enemy, instead of outright aggression.


ESTJs enjoy being liked, and will attempt to avoid making enemies out of people. They are very aggressive and do have a tendency to push peoples buttons. ESTJs are rarely afraid of having enemies, and will come at the person outwardly instead of subtly. They will probably attempt to intimidate their enemies into backing down, and will find ways to make them feel physically threatened.


ISFJs are very driven by their need to please others, and will avoid making enemies at all costs. They want to be well received by others, and dislike the idea of having an enemy. ISFJs may have a tendency to hold grudges for a long time if they feel someone has wronged them, but they will attempt to push it aside. Their anger may come out in passive aggressive ways, or they may use guilt manipulation.


ESFJs spend most of their energy on pleasing others, and dislike the idea of making enemies. They will tend to avoid being disliked, but that does not mean they are incapable of making enemies. As an enemy an ESFJ will be most likely to shut someone out of their lives completely. If they are truly angry with someone, they will rant about them to others, but in the end will pretend like that person doesn’t exist. They may use manipulation to tear down their enemy’s character.


ISTPs are extremely laid-back and rarely make enemies. They tend to keep to themselves and truly do not find the desire to dislike someone. They probably feel like having an enemy would be a complete waste of their time, and would do their best to avoid that person. If someone continued to bug them, they would probably address it honestly in an attempt to deter that person. In the end the ISTP will ignore the enemy until they go away. If it goes too far they aren’t afraid of getting physical.


ESTPs desire to be liked, and usually don’t feel a need for making enemies. If they truly make an enemy out of someone, they will probably attempt to convince themselves they had no choice in the matter. They may talk negatively about that person in an attempt to deter others from liking them. They aren’t at all afraid of conflict, but in the end don’t truly want to make enemies.


ISFPs are probably one of the least likely types to make enemies. They dislike conflict and keep to themselves most of the time. ISFPs don’t feel the need to hold grudges and will generally just avoid someone who dislikes them. Instead of addressing the conflict, they will probably just step away from it.


ESFPs are fun loving and will usually ignore the presence of an enemy altogether. If they do feel the need to address an enemy, they may resort to petty insults and trashing their name to make them go away.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Does On A First Date

No two people approach romance in exactly the same way. Some of us like to be wined and dined. Others want fireworks and passion. But when you sit down to meet with a potential love interest for the first time, how do you know what kind of romance you’re getting yourself into?

The answer comes down to personality. Here’s how each type approaches romance on the first date.

ESFJ: Vows that no matter what, they will not get their hopes up prematurely. Accidentally starts planning their wedding vows 10 minutes later.

ISFJ: Makes a mental a list of everything their date passively mentions enjoying, so they can become experts on each topic by date number two.

ISFP: Smiles shyly, makes polite conversation, and internally calculates how much of their wild side their date seems capable of handling.

ESFP: Plans a back up date that’s way more fun and adventurous than the standard date. If their date seems cool, they whisk them away on said adventure. If their date seems boring, feigns food poisoning and whisks themselves and their three closest friends away on the adventure.

INFJ: Spends so much time analyzing how their date is probably perceiving them that they forget to form an opinion about how they’re perceiving their date.

ENFJ: Vows to appreciate their date without trying to “fix” them. Accidentally resolves their date’s deep-rooted childhood trauma by the time the appetizers arrive.

ENFP: Preemptively plans the grand romantic gesture that will win their date back after they fall into a whirlwind romance that inevitably gets halted by the ENFP spontaneously moving to Africa for five or six months.

INFP: Tries to keep things casual but accidentally writes four poems comparing their date’s mouth to an exotic-tasting fruit on the subway ride home.

ENTP: Enjoys the game of trying to get their date to fall madly in love with them. Forgets to consider whether they’d like to fall madly in love with their date in return.

INTP: Acts vaguely perplexed the whole evening. Realizes three weeks later that they were, in fact, on a date.

ENTJ: Accidentally networks with their date instead of forming a romantic connection with them. Feels extremely satisfied with the outcome.

INTJ: Asks their date a series of questions related to where they see themselves in five, ten and twenty-five years. Leaves their date confused as to whether they just went on a date or an interview.

ESTP: Effortlessly sweeps their date off their feet. Feels vaguely disappointed that doing so wasn’t more of a challenge.

ISTP: Attempts to dodge the “date” aspect of the date by orchestrating as chill a situation as humanely possible. Dinner and a movie? No way. Meeting up for drinks at a bar you were going to go to anyway? Sounds better.

ESTJ: Accidentally gives their date a lecture on responsible budgeting. Ends up concluding that their date can’t afford to split the bill and feels relieved thatthey budgeted to cover the whole thing.

ISTJ: Shows up early with a bouquet of flowers and a firm intention to prove that chivalry is not, in fact, dead.

If You Have Any of These 12 Traits You Belong to the World’s Rarest Personality Type

Only 2{67b9dc46c2005a2d6d0dc9e883ab6bdb9c47365a25e8ad24adf59fc11de2db4a} percent of the population across the world has the personality type known as the INFJ personality type.

Have you always felt that you’re different from the rest? You haven’t really come across a lot of people who understand you. That might be because you belong to the world’s rarest personality type – the INFJs, which is shared by only 2 percent of the entire population. Labelled as “the Advocate”, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa have all been INFJs. And if you’re one, you’re just as special!

Two psychologists developed the Myers and Briggs system from Carl Jung’s psychoanalyst theories where they classified personality types by initially breaking down the personality traits into 4 distinct categories: extroversion v/s introversion, sensing v/s intuition, thinking v/s feeling and judging v/s perceiving. This system uses the criteria provided to perceive the category one’s personality favors most. For an INFJ, his personality tilts towards Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Judging.

Such people can be hard to spot but if you know the following traits, you can easily spot them:


People with INFJ personality are not concerned with trivial issues. They always look at the bigger picture and do not get disheartened by challenges. If something will not give them the desired results, they will find another way to make it work.


These people do not shy away from hard work. They know that if they have to achieve something in life then they have to work for it because nothing comes for free in life. Giving their 100{67b9dc46c2005a2d6d0dc9e883ab6bdb9c47365a25e8ad24adf59fc11de2db4a} is their most defining trait.


They are highly intuitive people who trust their gut feelings. They have a feeling if something is working out or not for them. They also know when something is about go down in their life.


They believe in the mystery of the universe and would love to engage themselves with the cosmos. They try to find out a deeper meaning in the universal patterns.


They do not like to engage with big groups of people. Also, if you don’t agree with them or put them in conflict, they might cut you out of their life.


They are extremely generous towards others and would comfort you on your bad days. They are always ready to provide a shoulder to lean on and a listening ear. You can count on them for emotional support!


Along with high emotional energy, they can also read people by observing them. They can see through people’s intentions which make them aware of any malevolent person in their social circle.


They often feel lonely because they are not like the rest of the people. You can see them hanging out by themselves in a room full of people. Sometimes, they also like it this way.


They can go between the two extremes very quickly and very suddenly. This makes them hard to keep a track of and to gauge their mood is quite difficult. Their INFJ personality is the reason behind their contradictory nature.


They believe in quality over quantity and if you can’t give your best then you might as well not give anything at all.


They are good, very good actually, at making connections. They connect the dots and mostly they are right. If you are having trouble figuring something out, go seek help from an INFJ person.


INFJ people mostly like writing over any other thing. They dislike talking too much and rather spend their time writing what they want. It is a great way to bring themselves some moments of peace.
