    Thank you so much for the podcast. I am an INFP and at the beginning of my career I worked as a secretary/assistant in hotels, a non-profit organization and then at my family’s consulting business. I then turned my hobby into a career as a singer, songwriter and vocal coach. I am self-empolyed and consider myself a creative entrepreneur (and always feel like an imposter when saying this!).
    I find myself identifying with characteristics from every “subtype” depending on the situation or setting I am in. E.g. I have some leadership role in our church and work with a lot of creatives. So I find myself taking the role of the dominant (because nothing would get done, and I am strongly beleive in our “mission”). My husband is an INTJ and in our partnership I would probably be more a creative. In my role as vocal coach I find myself attracting people who have some trauma related to their singing voice and want to find their voice again More ambitious singers find me sometime too nice. Over all I would type myself today as harmonizing.

    So, I was wondering if we not only grow from one flavour to another over time but also switch between them according to situation or setting we find ourselves in.

    I have been the harmonizing subtype my entire life and have started to grow and incorporate the others as a mature 50 year old. So definitely this sub is not reserved for mature INFPs.

    I am an INFP and listened to all the subtypes and was sad that none of them sounded like me at all….until I got to the harmonizing sub!!! Then I started laughing out loud and screamimg. Hahahaha I have been this subtype my entire life not just older. This describes me since I was a toddler and have memories. My family would agree. So not just for older people!

    Now it’s getting clearer! I’ve always typed as INFP but I’ve never considered myself as creative. Ever! You can only imagine the frustration of knowing that I resonate deeply with INFP but also being unable to identify with our famous “creativity”. Ugh! I think I’m the normalising subtype and now I understand I need to (sort of) compartmentalise my day-to-day job from my other impulses coming from extraverted intuition.

    Thank you, Antonia and Joel! I can finally feel less like an impostor.

    PS: I would love to work in a library, matching people to the particular fiction books they would enjoy but I think AI would probably do that nowadays.

    It’s been years since I’ve consumed any Personality Type content as it does work on the back of my mind 24/7 anyway lol. but man does this hit home for me. after watching this on YouTube I’ve identified the most with the Harmonizing sub type.
    The part about analyzing people around me and is so spot on. It comes so natural and unconscious it’s crazy, for example I find myself typing people even my 1 or 2 year old nieces. And this “typing” process isn’t something that I’m “deciding” what type they’re most likely are. It just their traits and behaviors and appearance and all other sings and signals just synchronizing towards a type it’s becomes crystal clear to me with time. Especially after understanding cognitive functions around 10 years ago.
    I can go on and on about that.
    What really hit home for me when Antonia said “ this INFP sub type feels like they’re gonna die with that richness inside of them”
    So true. And hopefully I can use this richness to enrich my life in all facets.
    I have always considered psychological therapy as a career but I think it’s very overwhelming for me. Especially considering the part of the world I come from and live in.
    But this harmonizing trait still drives me and the pursuit of finding a new career as I work in the customer service of a bank and think that I don’t want to do this for the next 35~ years of my life. I’m thinking of studying physical therapy especially since I can use my drive for harmonizing and helping heal people while it satisfies my “healthy” side of me that I’ve developed thanks for the work of Dr Peter Attia the last year or so.
    So thank you guys for this amazing work.
