Advocate (INFJ) - PISCES

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 represent our will to transcend and evolve. They are always searching for ways to unite the material world and the divine. They are adaptable and emotional - they understand how to let go - and how flow with the current. This is due to their deep connection with the world around them and their sensitivity. This sensitivity means that they are deeply affected by those around them, making them empathetic and oftentimes shape-shifters, their identities are quite fluid, altering depending on the currents that flow around them. They are as genuinely warm as they are complex. They hold a special place in the heart of people who they are close to, who are able to see their special gifts and depth of caring. They are concerned for people's feelings, and try to be gentle to avoid hurting anyone. They are very sensitive to conflict, and cannot tolerate it very well. Situations which are charged with conflict may drive the normally peaceful Advocate/Pisces into a state of agitation or charged anger. They may tend to internalize conflict into their bodies, and experience health problems when under a lot of stress.

Mediating disputes is hard work, but these people have an astounding ability to help heal the rifts that divide people. They intuitively sense the real suffering that anger can cause if left to fester, and because they are good listeners they are quite effective at helping warring parties find workable solutions that will satisfy the needs of all. And they do it with great energy and determination. For them, obstacles exist to be overcome and no problem can outmatch the strength and resilience that these types possess deep inside. They follow through on their ideas with conviction, and have the willpower and decisiveness necessary to see projects through to the end. They live for the opportunity to solve problems and bring about positive change in the world.

Advocate/Pisces are committed to finding the ultimate ideal relationship. This means that they may unconsciously project their expectations of ideals on their partners, and may move on if they feel their partners don’t meet all those expectations. They tend to be agreeable and willing to set aside their desires to meet their partner’s needs. Although they are opinionated, they rather find points of agreement first before discussing differences. Even when they’ve been slighted or offended, they tend to harbor resentment rather than confront. The keeping of emotions, however, does not serve them. It comes out later in an uncontrolled or emotional way. They often put their partners needs above their own. This may become dangerous if the match isn't healthy, as Advocate/Pisces selflessness can leave them vulnerable to hurt and manipulation. If you love them, be very gentle and very honest and tactful with them. This person gives the utmost in loyalty and devotion and their sensitivities should be honored and cherished.

These people are also strong communicators. This explains why they are often drawn to careers in writing, authoring many popular books, blogs, stories, and screenplays. Music, photography, design, and art can all be viable options as well, allowing Advocate/Pisces to focus on deeper themes of personal growth and purpose. That said, they can excel in a range of fields. Wherever they work, people with this personality type can find ways to help others. They can also find ways to use their creativity in nearly any position. No matter what it says on their business cards, their insight can enable them to spot unusual patterns and come up with out-of-the-box solutions, creating real change in others’ lives.
