Ever seen one? An angry INFJ? Well, let me tell you, if you ever do it is one thing you will never forget. As of now, to be completely honest with all of you, I am fuming. If it were humanly possible I would literally have steam rolling out of my red hot ears. So instead of wasting my time and health punching walls, I figured I would let out some emotional steam and try to objectify what I feel and what I do when I am angry.
Buckle your seatbelts, kids. It’s about to get bumpy.
As you probably know, INFJ’s outlook on life is fueled by emotion. We are feelers. We quite literally feel everything whether it is meant to be personal or not. That is both a pro and con. On one side of the INFJ coin, you have a caring, empathetic bleeding heart that would kill or be killed for a cause they believe in or a person they hold dear. On the darker, scarier side of said coin is a vindictive assassin who will use all the information and intuition gathered about you to utterly destroy you into oblivion. (The reason for this will be explained in the latter portion of this article.) Let’s just say that once I hit the roof, people take notes. Detailed notes. Drenched in fear.
Think of the angry INFJ as a sick twist of DC’s Joker. There’s a whole lot of insanity that can be released in a short amount of time. And once it is, the INFJ just stands back laughing and watches it all burn. The thing about my anger is that I can mask it and make it seem harmless at first. Then I get in your head and tear you apart in tiny unsuspecting shreds. I am either Cool Hand Luke or the Hulk. There is no in between. (This all depends on how thoroughly I want to injure you.)
You might be thinking that INFJs tend to be more mouse like. I can imagine that it would be quite a shock to watch a quivering mouse turn into a roaring lion. The thing that makes an INFJ want to rip out throats is that we hate conflict/hate/cruelty. I will not purposely hurt or torture anyone that hasn’t done anything to me. I am a lover, believe me. But once I feel as if someone is hurting someone or something I love, I get very defensive in record time. And another thing that enfuriates me is when people harm defenseless people or things. I tend to have a special connection with small fragile things, and if I see them get hurt I become quite outraged.
Why? Remember when I said INFJs take things personally? Yep. That is the core of the INFJ. Once you touch “The Precious” you can kiss your sanity goodbye. For the most part INFJs don’t attempt physical warfare. It’s all about the mind. Why? Because we read people easily and have killer instincts (oh the irony). It’s kind of like Scar from “The Lion King.” We manipulate. Why fight when you can have an army do it for you? That sounds like Loki too. Hmmm.
This is getting scarier as I go along. Maybe I should laugh maniacally before I continue.
Nah. That would be cheesy. Anyway.
It kind of scares me how good I am at revenge. I map things out in my mind and patiently wait to sprinkle chaos wherever I please. Have I attempted it, you might ask. Well, to be honest, yes, I have. And let’s just say it worked rather well. The thing about me is that even if I despise someone who has hurt me I still feel some remorse for tearing them up. Weird, huh? I guess it’s a good thing INFJs have empathy, because if we didn’t we would probably take over the world. Oh, and Hitler was apparently an INFJ. Random scary fact of the day.
Life lesson: Don’t mess with INFJs.
So if you were curious about the ticked off INFJ, there you have it. This INFJ is definitely in a foul mood, let me tell you. So you are experiencing the frustration first hand. And I didn’t even punch anything! Who am I kidding? I would have someone else punch things for me.
I hope you all have a great evening and please don’t punch anything. Save those knuckles!
Stay incredibly amazing.
Loads of Love,
