Here’s How You Feel About Destiny, According to Your Personality Type
Some people believe in practical things that they can measure, while others have a strong sense of destiny. Here is who each personality type feels about destiny and fate.
INFJs are very caring people, with complex and compassionate souls. They are both dreamers and logical people, which makes them a complete paradox. INFJs often enjoy analyzing information and looking at it from a logical standpoint, but overall their intuition and emotions will rule their choices. INFJs often do believe in destiny, and have a strong belief that certain things are simply meant to be. They have a strong sense of intuition, but at the same time INFJs believe that there are things in life that cannot always be explained. They believe that certain people are meant to be connected, and sometimes things are meant to happen in their lives.
ENFJs are outgoing and compassionate people, who love giving to those around them. ENFJs are often focused on making their future as great as they possibly can. ENFJs are hardworking people who strive to ensure that everyone around them is happy and cared for. ENFJs often believe in destiny to some extent, especially when it comes to their loved ones. They often believe that they are connected to certain people because it is meant to be that way. They may not want to sit back and let things happen, but ENFJs believe that with their own efforts destiny can take it proper course.
INFPs are dreamy people, who often let their heart guide them in their life choices. They want to do what they believe is right and have very strong morals. INFPs often do believe in destiny, and have a strong inner sense of what is meant to be. INFPs don’t let those feelings take them over too much, but deep down they do believe in fate. INFPs enjoy the idea that things don’t just happen on accident, and that they are actually meant to be. They also believe that the connections they make are meant to happen, and have a strong belief that whoever they end up romantically intertwined with is the “right” person.
ENFPs are imaginative people who do base a lot of choices on their own emotions. They want to follow their heart and let life take them where it may go. They don’t want to get caught up on negativity, and instead prefer to soak up the possibilities that life has to offer them. ENFPs follow their heart, which can sometimes cause them to believe in a sense of destiny. They might not openly express these feelings to others, for fear that they would judge them. Deep down many ENFPs do believe in destiny, and enjoy letting things happen however they are meant to. ENFPs are hopeless romantics, who truly want to believe in true love and the presence of destiny.
INTJs are logical people, who believe that we make our own way in life. They rarely have a strong sense of destiny, and prefer to accept that they have control. They don’t want to give over this control to some invisible idea, and often believe that to be a foolish notion. INTJs would rather focus on getting things done, and know that they make their own path in life. They might feel like having a belief in destiny makes people lazy and they don’t want to take part in that behavior. INTJs make their own choices and won’t allow someone else or something else to dictate their actions or their future.
ENTJs are focused people, who believe in working hard to achieve their goals. ENTJs rarely believe in a sense of destiny, and are more interested in making their own way in life. They do not want to relinquish control to some idea, and prefer to make their own choices and get things done themselves. ENTJs believe in logic and facts, not in foolish ideas of fate. They know that instead of letting things pass them by in life, they need to take charge and make it happen. ENTJs want to achieve their goals, and work extremely hard to do so.
INTPs are logic minded people, who believe in the importance of making their own choices. They rarely express any belief in destiny, and often prefer to logically analyze a situation. INTPs are skilled at problem solving, which is often what they prefer to do in their own lives and even the lives of others. They do have the occasional romantic streak, which can cause them to have a belief deep down in some form of destiny. Ultimately, INTPs are logical people and will often push aside any of those romantic feelings in order to focus on the facts and information in front of them.
ENTPs are logical people who prefer to observe the facts instead of focusing on emotions. They rarely believe in things like destiny and instead will believe in the information in front of them. ENTPs might even think the belief in destiny is a foolish thing, which allows people to become lazy in their own lives. They would much prefer to observe the facts and give themselves the credit for their own lives. ENTPs want to be in control of their actions, and dislike feeling like they are being pushed in any direction. They enjoy exploring new possibilities, so there may be a time where ENTPs entertain the idea of destiny, but ultimately the facts often prove against it.
