Personalities & Flowers: The Advocate (INFJ)

The Advocate is complex and versatile. They have a deep sense of idealism and integrity. They take concrete steps to realize their goals and make a lasting impact. Looking for the perfect flowers to send an INFJ? We know just the ones!

INFJ: THE ADVOCATE

Advocates are the rarest personality type of all. They can speak with great passion and conviction, but can also be soft-spoken and understated. Advocates generally stand up for what’s right, striving to fix society’s deeper seeded problems. They use their creativity, imagination, and sensitivity to lift others up and spread compassion. They value deep, authentic relationships and take great care of other people’s feelings. Advocates will step in when seeing someone facing unfairness or injustice, making them well-suited to support a movement to right a wrong. 

Strengths

  • Creative
  • Insightful
  • Principled 
  • Passionate
  • Altruistic 

Weaknesses

  • Sensitive to Criticism 
  • Reluctant to Open Up
  • Perfectionistic 
  • Avoiding the Ordinary 
  • Prone to Burnout 

Their Perfect Flower

Advocates are sensitive and caring, much like the orchid. Orchids are sensitive to the needs of others first, sometimes forgetting to take care of their own needs, just like INFJs. They symbolize reverence, respect, dignity, humility, strength, and courage, making them the perfect flower for INFJs. Does this sound just like someone you know? Send the INFJ in your life a gorgeous arrangement with orchids! They’ll love the thought you put into it and the stunning work done by your local florist.

Myers-Briggs Personality Types

For the uninitiated, the Myers-Briggs Personality Types are 16 different kinds of personalities based on qualities each person possesses: Introverted or Extroverted (I or E), Sensing or Intuitive (S or N), Thinking or Feeling (T or F), and Judging or Perceiving (J or P). An assessment of questions determines your type and can help you get to know yourself better and to understand why you behave in certain ways, how you view the world, and how you interact with others.
