Here’s How High Your Standards Are, According to Your Personality Type
While some people are very forgiving, others set rather high standards. Here is how high your standards are, based on your personality type.
INFJs can set very high standards for themselves, and might become upset when they do not meet them. They don’t want to disappoint themselves or their loved ones, and strive hard to reach a certain level of perfection. While INFJs can be extremely hard on themselves, their standards for others are a bit different. They might set unique standards for the people they let into their lives, but once they do let someone in they become rather forgiving. INFJs don’t expect much from their loved ones, and simply want to know that those people care. They will continuously forgive mistakes, especially if that person is trying their best. They don’t expect other people to be perfect, they really only expect this of themselves.
ENFJs can hold extremely high standards for themselves, and almost want to achieve perfection. They are constantly pushing to be better, and truly dislike feeling as if they have disappointed their loved ones. ENFJs work hard to accomplish their goals, and become very upset if they do not live up to their own high standards. ENFJs can also set high standards for the people they let into their hearts, but this is simply because they do not trust easily. When the ENFJ does care for someone, they will not hold them to such high standards any longer.

They know what they believe is right and wrong, and are always striving to live up to this. INFPs do not want to fail when it comes to their own standards, and are always putting pressure on themselves to do better. When it comes to their loved ones INFPs can hold them to similar standards, but only when it comes to their moral choices. They simply don’t want to see the people they care for abandon their morals, and strive to help support them in being the best versions of themselves.
ENFPs can have somewhat high internal standards, but they don’t always express this openly to others. They can be hard on themselves when they do not accomplish their goals, which can be difficult for the ENFP.

While ENFPs do have high standards, they would never want to pressure their loved ones or make them feel bad.
