INFJ / Scorpio
Who is an Advocate (INFJ)?
Advocates are individuals with the Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Judging personality traits. They tend to be gentle, complex and intuitive people who enjoy expressing themselves both artistically and creatively. Highly observant of their surroundings, advocates are extremely skillful at reading and understanding other people.
These are difficult people to get to know. They are psychological trap doors. They socialize from behind a double-sided mirror, always scanning, reading you while you can only see your own reflection. They prefer to be the people asking the questions. They remove your skin with their perceptive scalpel and take inventory of your pulsing viscera. They probe and push. They know the little things that make you tick. Your pressure points. The subtle ways to procure the answer they’re seeking. Despite their ability to be generally popular, there’s something very lonely about Advocate/ Scorpios. They are forthcoming and evasive at the same time, depending on what is situationally beneficial. They are blunt, but not tactlessly so. They are intentional about the information they reveal. They’re not liars, they do not espouse falsehoods, but they are masters of opening windows on certain truths while concealing others behind heavy curtains.
These people have such strong intuitive capabilities, they trust their own instincts above all else. This may result in a stubbornness and tendency to ignore other people's opinions. They believe that they're right. On the other hand, they’re a perfectionist who doubts that they are living up to their full potential. Advocate/Scorpios are rarely at complete peace with themselves - there's always something else they should be doing to improve themselves and the world around them. They believe in constant growth, and don't often take time to revel in their accomplishments. They have strong value systems, and need to live their lives in accordance with what they feel is right. In deference to the Feeling aspect of their personalities, they are in some ways gentle and easy going. Conversely, they have very high expectations of themselves, and frequently of their families. They don't believe in compromising their ideals.
It takes them a while to open themselves up to someone enough to really fall in love. They think that love is the capacity for pain. Love means partially relinquishing some of their self-control and this is especially hard for an Advocate/Scorpio. When they do let someone in, they fall in love completely. They can be fiercely possessive. They want to learn everything about you. They want to be around you as much as possible. They are frighteningly fast at getting attached. They have the ability to see past the mask of pretense to the soul of desire, and they look for people who can see and appreciate this part of them. They are into things that are real. They are into people who are not afraid to say what they mean. They’re not interested in anything that doesn’t involve the risk of being completely destroyed. They want to have as much of the dramatic experience as possible because the absence of strife is a kind of subtle death. They want to desire things, but they don’t want to be ruled by their desires. This is why they will sometimes date people who are the exact opposite of what they claim to want.
Advocate/Scorpio can pursue their ideals with a single-mindedness that may catch others off guard. These people rarely settle for “good enough,” and their willingness to disrupt the status quo may not please everyone. That said, their passion for their chosen cause is a key aspect of their personality.
