Here’s How Much You Believe in Karma, Based on Your Personality Type
Some people have a strong belief that others will get what is coming to them. They believe that whatever you put out into the world comes back to, both negativity and positivity. Here is how much you believe in the idea of karma, based on your personality type.
INFJs can go back and forth when it comes to their belief in karma. Deep down they often hope and believe in this idea, wanting to see people brought to justice. This part of the INFJ often has a strong sense of hope that things are made right and that people will pay for their actions. There is an often more prominent part of the INFJ which believes that things are not so simple and that life can be a bit darker than this. They might feel that karma is something that needs to be carried out, and that justice doesn’t just magically happen. Their more cynical mindset causes them to feel like karma doesn’t really exist naturally and that people need to make things right themselves.
ENFJs often believe in the idea of karma, but might become impatient when they do see it working quick enough. They can often approach things with the feeling and belief that everything works out for a reason, and that people do get what they deserve in the end. ENFJs might become frustrated if they see someone constantly doing bad things without ramifications, and when this happens they will seek out ways to claim justice if they can. ENFJs believe that people should pay for their actions, if even in a small way in order to teach them a valuable lesson about how they should behave.
INFPs often believe in karma, and believe that injustices will not stand. They believe that whatever you put out into the world is going to come back and haunt you, and so they strive to create a more positive energy around them. INFPs are moral people who truly want to make a difference in the world, and don’t like seeing people cause pain to others. They believe in doing what is right and they also believe that people who do horrible things should pay for this in some way. They might not believe in harsh punishments, but INFPs believe that justice needs to be served in some way.
ENFPs usually do believe in karma in some ways, even if they don’t express this outwardly. They often believe that people will get what they give, even if it takes some time for things to come back around. ENFPs might struggle with this in some situations, especially if it seems to be taking too long for karma to run its course. When this happens they simply maintain an inward hope that things will work out how they are meant to. ENFPs have very strong inner morals and values, and so they do believe in a sense of justice and that people need to make proper choices in life.
INTJs might not entirely believe in karma, since they can be realists in many ways. They don’t necessarily believe that things simply go how they should and often feel that people need to find ways to make things right themselves. They rarely believe in some mystical force righting all of the wrongs in the world, and instead they prefer to focus on things that are tangible. INTJs do believe in justice however, and will feel that people need to find a way to right the wrongs in the world. For the INTJ the best means of making things right is through education and finding ways to remove ignorance wherever they can.
ENTJs don’t usually believe in things like karma, and have a much more realistic idea of how things work. They do believe that justice should be served, but they often feel that people need to work to make things right. ENTJs rarely believe that things just happen and don’t usually have a belief that life is going to be fair and easy. For them it is much more factual and to the point, and so they don’t usually follow an idea of karma. They do believe that people should find ways to right the wrongs in the world, often through hard work and sometimes a stern hand.
INTPs might believe in karma during some times in their life, but this is often something they hold deep inside. It is more of a hope than a belief, and a strong desire that the wrongs of the world will be made right again. INTPs have many sides to their personality, one which is more logical and another which has a lot of heart. The heart of the INTP might believe in karma, or least hope that it is something that exists in the world. The logical brain of the INTP likely believes that things don’t always work out as they should, and that life can be much more challenging than this.
ENTPs rarely believe in a sense of karma, instead they believe that people need to make their own karma. If they feel like someone is continuously doing harm or making bad choices, the ENTP might believe that people need to find a way to make this situation right. They also believe that people need to make their own way in life, and find ways to improve their situation if it isn’t going in the direction they want. They definitely believe that people should find a way to make amends for their actions, and that justice should be serves in some situations.
ISTJs don’t often believe in things like karma, but they do believe that there is some justice in the world. They work hard and feel like they pay their dues in a way that should be attributed to them. For the ISTJ is isn’t about some mystical force taking over and making things right, it is simply that you get what you put into something. The harder you work the better the result, and if you slack off and use others this is something that will eventually come to light. For the ISTJ this is a more practical belief and not something so fanciful.
ESTJs don’t usually believe in karma in a more mystical sense, but rather they believe that hard work and dedication pays off. They do believe that there are injustices in the world that aren’t made right, unless people work to make them right. ESTJs have a strong belief that the world needs to work on making amends for the things that go wrong and they also place value in justice. ESTJs are practical people who approach things from a more realistic sense, rather than believing that things will just change without putting forth the work to make this happen.
ISFJs do sometimes hold an inner belief in things like karma, or at least they hope for it. ISFJs want to believe that things are made right in the world and that people will get back what they give. They don’t like seeing people hurting others and want those people to be reprimanded for their actions. They are often very practical people though, and sometimes they can see things from a more realistic point of view. ISFJs at least want to see some sort of peace in the world around them, and often try to make things right in whatever small way they can.
ESFJs do sometimes believe in karma, even though they have a more practical side of themselves which can be a bit cynical. ESFJs at least want to hope for things like karma, and feel like justice is something that should be valued. They don’t like seeing people hurt others and get away with it, and sometimes they feel a need to take matters into their own hands. ESFJs do often have a spiritual side though, one which teaches them to believe that people get what they give in the world.
ISTPs don’t usually believe in things like karma since they are much more factual than spiritual. ISTPs usually approach things from a realistic standpoint and only believe in what they can see in front of them. They can be cynical as well, sometimes believing that there is a lot of injustice in the world which is never made truly right. ISTPs often feel that if you want something to be fixed, you need to do it yourself instead of just expected it to happen without effort.
ESTPs don’t often believe in karma, since they are very realistic people. They can sometimes become frustrated when they see people achieving great things when they don’t seem to deserve this at all. It can be something that bothers the ESTP, since they do believe that things should be made right in these situations. They are simply more factual people who rarely find themselves believing in things in a more spiritual sense, and don’t often feel like karma is likely a real thing.
ISFPs are often spiritual people who believe strongly in things like karma. They also have strong inner morals which guide them and pull them in what they believe to be the right direction. ISFPs don’t want to harm others and they dislike when they witness cruelty in the world. They strongly believe that people will get what they give, and that their actions will be reprimanded eventually. They can be patient with this, often feeling like karma sometimes takes time to be dished out accordingly.
ESFPs often believe in things like karma and can actually be very spiritual people. They believe that people get what they give in the world and that wrongs will be made right. They try to maintain a positive outlook on the world instead of constantly looking at things in a more practical and sometimes cynical mindset. ESFPs want to believe that people’s actions come back to them, whether they invest in doing good things or they decide to be harmful. ESFPs want to believe that people will be reprimanded for their crimes, but also that their goodness will be returned.
