Ah, yes the joys of travel. Waiting in lines at airports, dining on the strange delicacy that is airline food, currency conversion, language barriers, new sights, unfamiliar cities…
The true joys of life, am I’m right guys????
What scares most people is our lifeblood. Our calling. Our passion. Our true nature as an INFJ.
The point of this post? Well its to say, if you’re INFJ and aren’t traveling DO IT NOW! And if you are traveling, well I’m sure you’re reaping the benefits!
Why is it that were born travelers?
Well, for starters we’re born outcasts. INFJ’s make up only one percent of the entire population! With 7.125 billion people in this world, that means theres only 71 million of us! So if you found every INFJ on the planet and put us all together we would only make up the equivalent to the population of France.
Bonjour all you INFJ’s out there!
So we’re natural outcasts. Which you may think sucks (which, it kind of does) but we’re such strong travelers because we’re not phased by being in a new space, by not knowing anyone, by being in different cultures, or by being surrounded by something different…. because well, thats just our life. Even in our hometowns were surrounded by a different culture than our own all the time!
Furthermore, travel is that perfect combination of what INFJ’s are. As INFJ’s we are the combination of the introvert and the extrovert. Traveling gives us new challenges to think about, to analyze, to feel, to enjoy.
It is the sweetest mental candy your mind will ever taste!
And then we get the extrovert side of us excited as well. Traveling is visually stunning, Its a cultural experience, You meet new people, you try new foods….and all of this happens in places you’ve never been before.
Your popular friends can fucking go on and on about how much fun they have as they suck down vodka and snort cocaine in the bathroom of some club, but those bitches will never know what a real high feels like.
We have that privilege.
The high we feel during the take off of an airplane, or that first step outside of an airport and smelling the air of a new place. The joy we get from learning the wold is a bigger and more beautiful place than one man could ever tame!
That is a real high. That is a true high. So next time, tell your the popular kids to suck a dick and then get your ass on a plane!
Finally, we as INFJ’s are highly idealistic. We look not to make excuses about “thats just how it is”, but instead we love to say “but this is how good it could be if we worked for it!”. And travel proves us right.
For anyone who ever says, “Well thats just how it is” traveling gives you proof that they’re wrong. Why? Well because you’ve seen it.
How could you possibly not believe in world peace after seeing dolphins play in the Florida Keys?
How could you not believe in tranquility after sitting next to a waterfall in Bali?
How could you not believe that community is still a real thing after seeing what a funeral looks like in New Orleans?
….you can’t. Which is why travel is amazing.
Alright all you INFJ’s (and hell, this goes for humans in general) GET TRAVELING! GO FIND YOURSELF, BECAUSE REALLY, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??????
