What does an INFJ like to hear

Adolf Hitler - INFJ

This post might piss off some INFJs because they might feel they have been put in a bad light, but basically it is only consistent when it is made clear that every personality type also produces its black sheep. I could also write about how great Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King, both most likely INFJs, were, but to be honest, on the one hand it is helpful to recognize the functions in people for whom one has no sympathy, on the other hand sometimes - and I think, also in this case - more interesting.

- Short addendum: since several INFJs feel attacked / discriminated by this post, here I refer to the post again -

So. Here we go. Hitler was an INFJ and here is my analysis. If someone does not agree, I look forward to arguments.

First function - introverted intuition

You don't have to have dealt much with the last German Chancellor to discover that Hitler was a fanatical idealist. He had clear ideas about where he wanted to lead Germany and was in turn led by a vision that was crystal clear to him. Alone if you look at the word “manhood of men” it becomes clear - Hitler was not conservative or tied to tradition. Nobody would have thought of seeing him as a sober realist, neither friend nor enemy. In addition, Hitler displayed a strong penchant for symbolism and showed a keen interest in occult practices, something that is also often found among introverted intuators. Hitler was clearly forward-looking. Votes against could claim that he was often oriented towards the past, such as Nordic sagas and legends, but here it was less about bringing the old back to a new shine, but rather a new shine, inspired by old onesMeanings to create, which should be much larger and loftier than anything that has ever existed before. His "third kingdom".

Second function - extroverted feeling

Hitler may have been a butcher and a hateful war criminal, but something that is all too quickly forgotten when he is demonized is the fact that he was also very empathetic and knew what makes people tick. Even if he was primarily an introvert who quickly got stressed and moody after too much excitement and interaction with other people, he kept mingling with the crowd. As a secondary extroverted feeler, he knew how important it was to present oneself as close to people if he wanted to uphold the myth of the Führer, the “father of the people”. In his speeches, he always adapted to his audience and knew exactly with which points he could win over workers, military, academics or religious people. This social mimicry is a talent that is found especially in extroverted feelers.

Third function - introverted thinking

Hitler despised the strict, rule-oriented bureaucracy, ingrained systems where nobody really knew why they existed and that was another reason why he wanted to come to power in the first place. As I have already described in a previous post, extroverted thinking is often an enemy image to the introverted, and this obviously also applied to Hitler. From a political point of view, the Weimar Republic as the “bulwark of bureaucracy” embodied a negative image of extroverted thinking, rigid and inflexible. Hitler's analytical thinking also complemented his aforementioned talent for influencing the masses by soberly and strategically dealing with what made people tick.

Fourth function - extroverted feeling

Before his career as a dictator, Hitler was an artist. That alone doesn't necessarily say that much, but if we look at this fact with his well-known pronounced sense of aesthetics, the picture is bigger. Hitler's repressed function was shown by the fact that he liked to surround himself with beautiful things, such as paintings or nature. When he needed time for himself, he often retired to the mountains to paint. In connection with his dominant function, he also wanted to represent the splendor of his nation with the help of ostentatious buildings. The suppressed, extroverted feeling of Hitler may also have been shown in the fact that he, the great planner and visionary, tended to act impulsively. Hitler's hasty incursion into Russia in 1941, which he justified by saying that “the risk of waiting is greater than that of acting” also corresponds to the gambler's mentality of extroverted feelings.
