Every personality type is intriguing and comes in different shades. This also applies to the INFP 1w9.
In this article, we’ll look at who the INFP 1w9 is and what you can expect from them.
Who is the INFP 1w9?
INFP 1w9 are idealistic people with set principles. This personality type has acquired values and sticks to them strongly over the years.
Because they are type 9, they might be willing to compromise in some situations. INFP 1w9 is one type that has perfected the use of their two main cognitive functions; Fi and Ne.
Type 1 correlates somewhat with Fi. So, an INFP being a type 1 is not very uncommon. However, as we shall soon see, its presence and wing still distort some of the typical traits of the INFP.
INFP 1w9 is more likely to be INFP-A than INFP-T.
What is the Core Desire of the INFP 1w9?
The core desire of the INFP 1w9 is to be good. They want others to see them sticking to their values.
Anything less is simply not good enough for this personality type.
What is the Core Fear of the INFP 1w9?
The core fear of the INFP 1w9 is to appear corrupt or immoral. This is relative to their values. So, if the INFP 1w9 doesn’t see an action as bad, they will do this even though others think it’s wrong.
How the 1w9 Changes the Natural Tendencies of the INFP
1. Enhanced Fi
INFP leads with introverted feeling (Fi) function. It is the most advanced function for them. However, INFP 1w9 pushes this to new limits. Their Fi is fully developed and used optimally.
This allows them to develop and identify what they believe in. Because it’s their internal moral compass, why they believe in a particular thing might be unclear.
However, they fully stick to it. This makes this personality type principled.
2. Strong Ethical Beliefs
This follows the last point. Because of type 1 and their Fi, they are more ethical. If raised in a religious background, they are more likely to stick with these beliefs.
Because they are INFPs, they might have unconventional ideas that contradict these beliefs.
This will lead to an internal struggle.
3. Better Work Ethic
INFPs are not famous for their work ethic. However, the presence of type 1 changes things. They become more efficient with their work. Here’s why.
They want to be good. Completing their tasks and responsibility is a great way to achieve this. So, they’ll do everything possible to get it done.
Because they want to be efficient, INFP 1w9s can quickly become perfectionists. Perfection is the only way to be exceptionally good. So, this is not a surprise.
This has its pros and cons. This personality type becomes more reliable and always puts in a shift. On the other hand, this can be a hindrance when there’s a tight deadline. They will not be satisfied with their work.
5. Less Agreeable
INFPs are famous for being accommodating. They are even called mediators. Not this INFP. INFP 1w9s are more confrontational. This is especially evident when their beliefs are called into question.
However, it can still be challenging to say no to more minor matters. Because they are still INFPs, they might feel awkward if people don’t like them.
New Weaknesses of the INFP 1w9
1. More Stubborn
A stronger Fi usually leads to stubbornness. Because their beliefs are ingrained, they are usually fixated on them.
So, they might not budge even when they are on the wrong path. This can be dangerous and can hinder their growth and development.
2. Fairly Rigid
This follows the last point. Because they are fixated, they become very rigid. If they are unhealthy, INFP 1w9s can quickly become fanatics.
They might see others as evil or flawed. This stems from believing their preferences are correct or the only reasonable way.
The problem with this belief is that very few things are black and white. Being rigid might be a sign of naivety.
3. Anger Issues
Type 1 and type 9 are both in the anger triad. However, their response to it is different. While type 1 internalizes the anger and lashes out on others, type 9 represses it until they explode.
Either way, this means that INFP 1w9 can be very volatile. This is not readily noticeable since this personality type is an introvert.
However, their anger issues are forever present.
Because of their need for perfection, they can easily become self-critical. This is because type 1 sets high standards for themselves. You’re human, and this means you’ll fall short at times.
However, anything short of perfection can be a massive blow for INFP 1w9s. In worst-case scenarios, it can lead to loss of confidence or even depression.
INFP 1w9 in the Workplace
INFPs are interested in career paths that allow them to be creative. They also tend to follow their passion more than their ambitions.
This is also true with INFP 1w9s. However, they will choose career paths based on how it makes them look or the impact it has on people. INFP 1w9s can cope well enough with 9-5 jobs and remote work.
To get the best out of the INFP 1w9, ensure their role is creative and gives them a purpose.
