It’s both hard and special to be an INFJ. We all know that the INFJ is the rarest personality type in the world. We also know that they might feel left out or misunderstood at times. Still, this has not stopped INFJ from reaching great heights in our world. Today, we’ll be looking at famous INFJ people across all categories.
This should be fun!

The INFJ is not usually in the business world. However, when they do indulge themselves, they add something special. Their emotional intelligence and ability to understand others make them the perfect entrepreneur.
Here are two of them.
Yes, we will all agree that Lady Gaga is known mostly for her musical skills. However, what you definitely didn’t know is that she is also a very good business person.
