INFJ / Aries
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.
They have a deep sense of idealism and integrity, but they aren’t idle dreamers – they take concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting impact. Advocate/Aries's unique combination of personality traits makes them complex and quite versatile. For example, they can speak with great passion and conviction, especially when standing up for their ideals. At other times, however, they may choose to be soft-spoken and understated, preferring to keep the peace rather than challenge others. They are all about celebrating their friends—they just expect the same in return, of course. They’re independent and creative. Their crackling energy is infectious, and they are children at heart, buzzing with the force of life itself. While they are talented at ideation and making decisions, they can become easily frustrated or bored, leading them to abandon things just as quickly. They require a lot of independence and can become irritable if others try to control them.
Advocate/Aries often make unconscious conclusions about people or things that they can’t seem to explain. Many times, they are proven to be right. They attribute this to their gut, but it is really their Introverted Intuition at work. This is their source of genius, creativity and innovation. These people usually show up in areas where they can be creative and somewhat independent. They have a natural affinity for art, and many excel in the sciences, where they make use of their intuition. They can also be found in service-oriented professions. They are not good at dealing with minutia or very detailed tasks. They will either avoid such things, or else go to the other extreme and become enveloped in the details to the extent that they can no longer see the big picture. An Advocate/Aries who has gone the route of becoming meticulous about details may be highly critical of other individuals who are not.
An Advocate/Aries in love is inspired to collaborate. It’s a must to share at least a few interests and hobbies, and the partnership always has to be moving toward something for them to stay engaged and motivated. They fall hard and fast, and their sudden infatuations can burn out quickly. They are incredibly physical and their relationships are usually characterized by white-hot sexual chemistry. They want a high degree of intimacy and emotional engagement, and are happiest when they feel they are sharing their innermost thoughts and feelings with their mates. They value a partner who respects their deeply held values and ethics, and one who appreciates their creativity and inspiration. When in love they may become jealous fairly easily. This is a person who withdraws to ponder such things - rather than take the direct approach to confrontation. As you get to know them better, don’t be shy to flatter them! Let them know exactly what you love about them and how much you appreciate having them in your life. They are also likely to appreciate hugs, touches and other physical displays of affection.
Advocate/Aries tend to be motivated by a sense of having a greater purpose in life. They might consider it tedious or unnecessary to break their big visions into small, manageable steps. But they may be setting themselves up for frustration if they don’t turn their dreams into everyday routines and to-do lists. Without these specifics, their goals may never materialize. People with this personality combo can exhaust themselves if they don’t find a way to balance their drive to help others with necessary self-care and rest.
