Here’s How Prideful You Can Be, Based on Your Personality Type

While having a strong sense of pride in who you are is a good thing, there are times when too much pride can stand in your way. Some people are more prone to a prideful nature, while others prefer to be humble. Here is how prideful you can, based on your personality type.

 

INFJ

INFJs can be prideful at times, even though they can also be humble. This is just another part of what makes the INFJ such a paradox, and often leaves others struggling to truly understand them. There are times when the INFJ can be prideful over their morals and who they are. They work hard to care for others, and sometimes they are more than aware of their own capabilities. There are times in the INFJs life where their strong intuition can create a sense of pride within them, since they often know what they can do and realize that they have an ability to achieve greatness.

ENFJ

ENFJs do have moments where they can appear prideful, especially since they work so hard. ENFJs are focused people who go after what they want and don’t let anything stand in their way. They also juggle many tasks in order to take care of their loved ones, and this can cause them to be prideful sometimes. They are well aware of how much effort they put into things and how much they are capable of handling. ENFJs are more likely to appear prideful around someone who challenges their abilities and tries to undermine them.

INFP

INFPs don’t like appearing prideful and often try to avoid this. They do however have many sides to their personality, and sometimes their prideful traits can expose themselves with the right atmosphere. INFPs have very strong inner morals, and they know what they believe in. Their morals can actually be what causes them to appear prideful at times, especially if they are around someone who challenges them and behaves immorally. The INFPs might feel superior to this person in some ways, even though they try not to let this take over.

ENFP

ENFPs try to be as humble as they can, but sometimes they can appear prideful with certain things. They have a strong sense of morals and they know what they want, this can cause the ENFP to feel prideful sometimes.

INTJ

INTJs can definitely be prideful at times, especially since they know what they are educated on. INTJs don’t like feeling inferior, which is why they spend so much time researching and learning. There are times when their attitude can seem prideful, especially when they feel like someone is trying to demean them in any way.

Being vulnerable simply is not easy for the ENTJ and this can cause them to appear prideful from time to time.

INTP

INTPs don’t like behaving in a way that seems prideful, but sometimes they can appear this way to others. It usually isn’t the case, but it comes from the INTP lack of vulnerability. They are fully aware of what they know and are often completely educated and factual, but they struggle to convey their information in a way that connects with people most of the time. They simply aren’t emotionally driven people and so they don’t always know how to express their true inner feelings, which causes the INTP to be misunderstood.

ENTP

ENTPs try not to be prideful, but they can appear this way sometimes. ENTPs have larger than life personalities and sometimes they put out a vibe that isn’t exactly how they feel on the inside. They just aren’t naturally good at expressing their feelings and so ENTPs often put up walls in front of most people. These walls, mixed with the ENTP comedic and eager personality, can sometimes cause them to be misunderstood by others. Their intelligence and their desire to push the limits can actually appear a bit prideful during the wrong situations.

 

ISTJ

ISTJs do have a sense of pride, especially with the things they have done for a long time. When the ISTJ knows their abilities they don’t allow anyone to push them aside or make them feel inferior.
