How INFPs can irritate others
Each personality type can potentially irritate other people in their own particular way.
How INFPs might irritate others
The potential ways in which an INFP can irritate others include being too idealistic, appearing out of touch, and being disorganised. Because you have strong but private values, the team may find you unexpectedly stubborn over some issues that the group did not anticipate being a problem. You may spend too much time thinking, focusing so much on the issues that are important to you that you do not take into account the values and beliefs of other team members. You may also feel uncomfortable with conflict and therefore tend to try to avoid it.
How to improve relationships
You can overcome personality type differences by learning about your similarities and differences with other people. This leads to greater understanding, appreciation, and respect. Also, if you learn to adapt your style this will make you more influential and respected.
There is a comprehensive guide on how to do this in the book Influencing People Using Myers Briggs. This is available as an option when you complete the personality test.
