About INFJ Men
A site where INFJ Men can loosen their belts; crack a brewski; and talk chicks, touchdowns, and protein shakes. Pass me a cold one, bro!
…Not quite. Because that’s not quite (or, not at all) INFJ Men.
INFJs are intuitive, sensitive feelers. These are our gifts, and we’re able to use them to make the world a better place. Though for the male INFJ, being perceived as “sensitive” and “feel-y” can also present unique challenges. Our masculinity can be called into question when our soft delivery and intuitive flights of fancy don’t conform to the sweat-and-grime norm that is often celebrated by society at large. For an INFJ male, this only adds to the confusion and insecurity that are unwelcome hallmarks of the INFJ psyche.
Now, this is not to reinforce gender stereotypes — rigidly splitting the population into “men” and “women” — as gender fluidity is a real experience that must be respected. And this is not to say that INFJ women don’t have their own set of challenges, or that they’re not as severe as males’, because being an INFJ can be confusingly paradoxical for all. My hope, however, is that by collecting the male INFJ perspective I can at least help the segment of the population that I’ve come to understand most completely, having lived, suffered, and thrived as an INFJ Male.
So, bro, don’t expect a pinup of the week on the front page, and apologies if the posts aren’t riddled with contrived sports references, but this is not your average “for men” site. Because this site is not about asserting or even aspiring to masculinity at all. Instead, INFJ Men is simply about understanding, embracing, and expressing “manliness” in a nuanced way that aligns to INFJ values.
INFJ Males are Men. Not because we meet the definition of masculinity, but because the definition is a construct that never truly existed in the first place. Realizing manhood is a path of self-discovery and growing into one’s true identity with confidence, integrity, and courage. Let’s navigate that path together.
