Anything short won’t make them happy.
What is the Core Fear of the INFJ 3w4?

How the 3w4 Changes Some of the Natural Tendencies of the INFJ
1. Higher Energy Levels
INFJs often complain of having lower energy levels. This is compounded by their desire to remain in their heads. INFJ 3w4s is a bit different.
While not the most hard-working type, they will have more energy than your typical INFJ. This will help them push ahead with goals and opportunities.
Thus, INFJ 3w4s are more likely to be successful.
2. More Ambitious
One of the reasons for their higher energy levels and goals is their ambition. Type 3 has a lot of ambition, which is evident in this personality type.
They want to reach the pinnacle of their careers and do it with style. Thus, once they have chosen a career path, expect them to distinguish themselves from others.
3. More Realistic
INFJ are idealists. This is also true of the INFJ 3w4 but to a much lesser extent. This personality type understands that things do not always go to plan.
So, they try to influence in any way they can. However, their idealism might creep in when dealing with romance or personal problems.
4. A Bit More Extroverted
While they do not become extroverts, they are certainly more extroverted. Here’s why. They need to talk and discuss with others. Type 3’s primary way of getting ahead is through persuasion and adaptability.
Take away the power of talking to others, and that’s the end of their superpower. INFJ’s auxiliary function is also extroverted feeling. Thus, they understand people on a higher level.
The only way to utilize this skill is to talk.
5. More Adaptable
INFJ 3w4s are more adaptable. While they have their values and principles, they know how to bend to people’s needs while wearing a facade.
This allows them to get along with everyone and remain popular. It also means more opportunities open up for them.
However, this can also have its drawbacks.
New Weaknesses of the INFJ 3w4
1. Need for External Validation
Despite all their success and achievement, INFJ 3w4s still treasure external validation. If others do not acknowledge their achievements, it feels less valuable to them.
They become cranky, irritable, or sulky. In worst-case scenarios, they might have bursts of anger or become manipulative.
It usually does not end well.
2. Less Self-Awareness
Being self-aware is one of the things INFJs are good at. This personality type loses that to some extent.
Their need to keep up with the Joneses means that they can lose track of what’s truly important. This has financial and emotional implications. INFJ 3w4s might strain their relationship with their loved ones and become financially reckless.
Type 4 is infamous for being self-absorbed. This is present to a lesser extent in INFJ 3w4s. They might become self-entitled and caught up in a bubble when things don’t go their way.
As earlier stated, the extent to which this applies depends on the strength of their wing.
4. Competitive Streak
Type 3 is known for their need to win. Thus, they are super competitive. This is also present in the INFJ 3w4.
They want to win at all costs. Because they are also feelers, this can make them emotional. Once this happens, this personality type, just like the ENFJ 3w4 and ENFJ 3w2, can become very aggressive.
This can change people’s impressions of them.
INFJ 3w4 in the Workplace
INFJs prefer a career that allows them to be innovative and creative. They want to make an impact. INFJs might also enjoy working alone as this can help them work faster.
INFJ 3w4s are similar. However, they are ambitious and want to see a lot of career progression. They are also not afraid of leadership positions and can push their subordinates to success.
INFJ 3w4s are perfectly fine working remotely. However, because they are type 3, 9-5 also works fine for them.
To get the best out of the INFJ 3w4, ensure their role allows for career progression.
