Do INFJs and INFPs Live Odd Lifestyles?

INFJ personality types and INFP personality types tend to be accommodating when young, and then we become more unconventional with age. As we ease into the midlife transition (also known as the “midlife awakening”) we may explore polyamory or unconventional partnerships with others. We also might travel or move more than other people, or live on the fringes of society.

For many INFJs and INFPs, it’s common to cast off a lot of society’s programming and expectations as a normal part of the aging process. This helps us become more of who we are, and deepen our relationship with self and spirit. But it can feel confusing or threatening to others, and so our circle of relationships may dwindle as we go through this shift. This is because friends and family only see the changes from the outside, and so the shifts may feel sudden to them, too abrupt, or they can’t understand why the shift is happening at all. From their perspective, the person they knew was a certain way for a long time, and now that person has suddenly changed with very little explanation.

It can be extremely difficult for INFJs and INFPs to communicate the details of the inner shifts we are experiencing as we go through the midlife transition. Getting to know other INFJs and INFPs who are on the same journey can make a huge difference in how isolated and alone we feel.

I talk more about this in the video below:

I’m teaching a new class all about the midlife transition and how it unfolds for INFJs and INFPs. It’s called “Midlife Awakening” and it begins on Wed June 12.

I got the inspiration to teach this class because I sent out an email to my audience and asked, “What should I teach next?” Overwhelmingly, people said they wanted a class on midlife transitions and midlife awakening. So, I designed this class to answer that need.

Although the class will be geared toward people who are currently experiencing a “midlife awakening” (people in their late 30s, 40s, and 50s), or a “late-life awakening” (people in their 60s, 70s, 80s, and beyond), there is actually no age requirement to join the class. All ages are welcome.

I’m hoping this class will shed light on some of the more hidden facets of the midlife transition for intuitive personality types and also help bring people together so that we can support each other as we make this journey.

Hopefully I’ll see you in this class!
