I Illustrate The Difficulties I Face As An Introvert

I draw “INFJoe Cartoons” to encourage and validate fellow introverts and INFJs (one of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types). I try to find a little humor in the difficulties introverts and INFJs face while navigating life, so making these cartoons is also a kind of therapy for me.

I began drawing them with a Sharpie on regular copy paper. In 2013, however, when my wife and I planned a 2-month trip to Spain, I bought an iPad to be more mobile and started making them with a stylus and Paper by FiftyThree.

For those of you who do not share the introvert preference or the INFJ personality type, I hope these cartoons will give you a little insight and understanding into our world. Thank you for looking!

I'm an INTJ and also a female, the rarest personality type for a girl. It's definitely hard. People think I'm shy and weird; I'm not, I'm just more comfortable alone or with very few people. I instinctively view people as irrational and this really annoys my family, with the exception of my twin sister, also an INTJ. I'm so glad this comic depicts what I do, especially the not-talking part. People get annoyed about that. :)

I am INTP and I guess my case is that I canot accept myself for who I am. I often interact with people but all I say is just a bunch of rubbish because I rarely truly want to have that conversation. This makes people think that I care for them when I don't. It seems that few people have this problem which makes it harder accepting myself for who I am. I want to have a lot of friends but it's hard to text or ask people out regularly because you don't really want to see them. I wish I wasn't an introvert.

Yeah INTJ female too. Last nights work scenario went much like this: "Oh, that's a new face, that's another new face. Where's my regular staff? Please don't sit at my desk. Please don't sit next to me. Oh not idol chit chat. I'm trying to work. Go away now, I have my own stuff to do.....good....you go over there. I'll talk to you later if I need." My other main issue is that I get bored with work that wont allow me to change systems or expand on thoughts and ideas. So...so...bored. So bored, I'm studying a new field. Misunderstood and unchallenged by the mundane.

People don't seem to understand that sometimes I don't have anything to say or I don't want to be bothered at all. Often I run my thoughts a couple of times in my brain to hear them how they sound, because when they come out of my mouth they sound illogical, rash something within those lines. That's when people around me misunderstand me and are quick to judge me based on that. PS: I re-wrote and read this at least 5 times....what I mean to say is that I see myself in some of these illustrations.

I always thought I was weird, until I discovered the MBTI and that I was an INFJ... Reading about it helped a LOT to understand myself ! Now I fully embrace who I am ! On many level we are living in an extrovert world, where it's well perceived to socialize, professionnaly you have to create a network, things like that... If you are introvert, you are called "no-life" most of the time, or people think you are just suffering of a mental disease :)) Nope, we are not ill, we are just ourselves, very sane actually :p

Even over small things like "why aren't you sitting down?" (I usually stand by the doorway to avoid) Or my favourite "why are you so quiet?

The cartoons are amusing! I certainly identify with them. Having just googled INTJ and INFJ, I now know a bit more than 0% about the subject. I was considered a loner and a bookworm as a child - which I think is a better definition of me than a list of capital letters that require a degree in something to understand. However I also dislike being categorised - like someone telling me they know about me because of my birth sign. We are all endlessly variable and capable of so much, especially if we step outside our 'known' behaviour.

Yesica1993

For all my fellow introverts out there, I urge you to get Susan Cain's book, 'Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking'. If you've never heard/understood terms like introvert/extrovert it explains it all in such a clear, understandable way! It's so much more than being shy vs. outgoing. I cannot recommend this book highly enough! And no, I don't know her or work for her and I'm not getting paid anything to say this. I just want to offer some help to those who may want it.

MaryYamada

Those are great cartoons, but I'd like to see some drawn based on an Introverted Extrovert, which is me. Having gradually lost my hearing until becoming completely deaf at age 21, my extreme extrovertism dimmed (you Introverts might object to the idea of "dimmed"), until I finally learned it was best to communicate with live people over the net.

KarlDesmartes
Community Member

I may be wrong, but I'd say not an introvert, but a solitary. Introverts have difficulties to communicate, even if they want to. Solitary are better alone, and don't understand the need to communicate.

Community Member
7 years ago

Hi Karl. Introversion and extroversion have to do with where one directs his energy and how one gets energized. In general, introverts focus internally and get their energy from being alone. In general, extroverts direct their energy outwardly and get energized from being around others. We are all somewhere different on the introvert/extrovert continuum. I happen to be an extreme introvert, but an INFJ who is very relational. :)

What is INTJ?

Community Member

INTJ is one of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality type. If you google it, you can get more information. There are many assessments online, though it's best to do one with a certified MBTI counselor.

I'm INTJ but I'm often talkative and loud, but I get tired of people after a bit. Right now I'm a counselor at my camp and I love it and being with the kids but most of the other staff are complete extroverts and don't realize that they aren't excluding me when I read or knit with my ear buds in for our time off or as I like to think of it, break from people time, instead of socializing with them. Its a little weird because at home most of my friends and all of my close friends are introverts and understand our shared need for taking our down time alone.

I am also an INTJ female and I've gotten used to being thought of as weird, cold, unfeeling, and antisocial. I am none of those things, but if someone doesn't want to take the time to talk with me one on one and find out who I really am, then it's their loss.

PaulGoldstein

Can someone help me out with this.....I am extremely extroverted to the outside world but am highly introverted alone. I constantly feel the need to talk to people a lot of the time but also want to be left the first alone. I have a super genius iq / math prodigy (which I can't stand and just want to play some funky bass in my Hiphop band). I was extremely introverted for a long time growing up yet now I can't shut up. A lot of times even when I initiated the conversation in just start to tune out as most people bore me to death with their inane drivel. I like to be home with my girl as much as I like to be the life if the party. I hate going our to eat and would much rather eat in. I have an EXTREMELY logical mind yet love to play improvisational music. When I took the Meyers Briggs test I had trouble answering the questions because the answer depends on my mood. Some people think of my as a buttoned up tech guru while others think I am a Coked up raving lunatic.

The cartoons are amusing! I certainly identify with them. Having just googled INTJ and INFJ, I now know a bit more than 0% about the subject. I was considered a loner and a bookworm as a child - which I think is a better definition of me than a list of capital letters that require a degree in something to understand. However I also dislike being categorised - like someone telling me they know about me because of my birth sign. We are all endlessly variable and capable of so much, especially if we step outside our 'known' behaviour.

I'm an ENTP and I found number 22 funny as I'm totally like that with my phone when walking with my fiance.

For all my fellow introverts out there, I urge you to get Susan Cain's book, 'Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking'. If you've never heard/understood terms like introvert/extrovert it explains it all in such a clear, understandable way! It's so much more than being shy vs. outgoing. I cannot recommend this book highly enough! And no, I don't know her or work for her and I'm not getting paid anything to say this. I just want to offer some help to those who may want it.

Those are great cartoons, but I'd like to see some drawn based on an Introverted Extrovert, which is me. Having gradually lost my hearing until becoming completely deaf at age 21, my extreme extrovertism dimmed (you Introverts might object to the idea of "dimmed"), until I finally learned it was best to communicate with live people over the net.

I may be wrong, but I'd say not an introvert, but a solitary. Introverts have difficulties to communicate, even if they want to. Solitary are better alone, and don't understand the need to communicate.

Hi Karl. Introversion and extroversion have to do with where one directs his energy and how one gets energized. In general, introverts focus internally and get their energy from being alone. In general, extroverts direct their energy outwardly and get energized from being around others. We are all somewhere different on the introvert/extrovert continuum. I happen to be an extreme introvert, but an INFJ who is very relational. :)

The funniest one for me and my gf is the last one. We're both INTJ type personalities and we relate very much with this one and the other comics.

What is INTJ?

Community Member

INTJ is one of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality type. If you google it, you can get more information. There are many assessments online, though it's best to do one with a certified MBTI counselor.

Though I'm an ISFJ, I can relate to some of these because I'm a total introvert and sometimes I do get annoyed that some people have misunderstandings about me.

Oh, this is sooooo me. I sometimes feel completely weird for just wanting to be alone for 'me time' -it drives my girlfriend mad- so thank you for highlighting this, and helping me understand that I'm not totally unique in my desire for aloneness!

You are definitely not alone! And not weird for needing alone time.

INTJ female. At this point I will walk away mid conversation or just inform people I am not interested in what they are saying. Sounds so bad when I put it that way but I don't have the mental stability to handle it.

this article was very interesting - but even more interesting than the article is the fact that my comment that was not as favourable as these, was deleted. Apparently parrot responses only are approved.

What does the J stand for? I may be the same but not sure what the whole abreviation means... introvert (something)? Also INFJ?

I'm INTJ but I'm often talkative and loud, but I get tired of people after a bit. Right now I'm a counselor at my camp and I love it and being with the kids but most of the other staff are complete extroverts and don't realize that they aren't excluding me when I read or knit with my ear buds in for our time off or as I like to think of it, break from people time, instead of socializing with them. Its a little weird because at home most of my friends and all of my close friends are introverts and understand our shared need for taking our down time alone.

I am also an INTJ female and I've gotten used to being thought of as weird, cold, unfeeling, and antisocial. I am none of those things, but if someone doesn't want to take the time to talk with me one on one and find out who I really am, then it's their loss.

Can someone help me out with this.....I am extremely extroverted to the outside world but am highly introverted alone. I constantly feel the need to talk to people a lot of the time but also want to be left the first alone. I have a super genius iq / math prodigy (which I can't stand and just want to play some funky bass in my Hiphop band). I was extremely introverted for a long time growing up yet now I can't shut up. A lot of times even when I initiated the conversation in just start to tune out as most people bore me to death with their inane drivel. I like to be home with my girl as much as I like to be the life if the party. I hate going our to eat and would much rather eat in. I have an EXTREMELY logical mind yet love to play improvisational music. When I took the Meyers Briggs test I had trouble answering the questions because the answer depends on my mood. Some people think of my as a buttoned up tech guru while others think I am a Coked up raving lunatic.
