Advocate (INFJ) - LIBRA

Who is an Advocate (INFJ)?

Advocates are individuals with the Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Judging personality traits. They tend to be gentle, complex and intuitive people who enjoy expressing themselves both artistically and creatively. Highly observant of their surroundings, advocates are extremely skillful at reading and understanding other people.

These people are an intellectual force to be conted on. Find them wandering around the non-fiction section of the library, asking probing questions at dinner parties and blowing up your inbox at 2 a.m. with a wacky idea. They are all about learning and communication, but they also crave their own space when all the chatting is over. Think of Advocate/Libra channeling the air element as a gentle breeze, wrapping us in its friendliness and understanding. Because they have such strong intuitive capabilities, they trust their own instincts above all else. This may result in a stubborness and tendency to ignore other people's opinions. They believe that they're right. On the other hand, they are a perfectionist who doubts that they are living up to their full potential. These people are rarely at complete peace with themselves - there's always something else they should be doing to improve themselves and the world around them. They believe in constant growth, and don't often take time to revel in their accomplishments. They have strong value systems, and need to live their lives in accordance with what they feel is right.

They are often be seen as being indecisive, but if you try and understand them more deeply, you’ll see that this is a false judgement. They simply like to weigh the best options for themselves and everyone else around them. When they do make decisions, you can be assured that these decisions will give the best results for all parties involved. They are extremely diplomatic and fair, and they hate to see others be unhappy around them due to unequal circumstances - meaning sometimes they can come off as a people pleaser. It is not so much that they are doing this for selfish or manipulative reasons, but rather because they are are seeking to create unity. Harmony is a word that is very important to this person - and peace in all aspects of their life is an imperative. Often seen as quite charming, they will only be frustrated and unhappy if they think or feel that they haven't been treated fairly.

When in love, Advocate/Libras will shower their lover with praise and affection. They mostly enjoy the finer things in life and this applies to their partner as well. They will appreciate any effort made on their behalf to look nice or any special attention to detail when dealing with them. And they will let you know how pleased they are. They’re supportive and guided by a sense of integrity. Their interest in human development applies to their mates as well, and they are encouraging of their partner's dreams, aspirations, and achievements. They want to maintain harmony in their relationships and are highly motivated to resolve conflicts. They tend to be creative problem-solvers and look for the emotional core of an issue to create a meeting of the minds. Although they desire cooperation, they are not willing to go along with an idea that does not feel authentic to them. When it comes to their core values and ethics, they are unwilling to compromise.

Work-life balance will also be incredibly important to them, as they seek to make sure that all areas of their lives are satisfied. The don't particularly seek out leadership positions, and work much better as team members - their talent for being supportive and mediating giving them a key role in their jobs. However, they tend to need to be able to give feedback and will only work well with leaders that can take criticism and advice.
