Conditions for creativity are to be puzzled; to concentrate; to accept conflict and tension; to be born everyday; to feel a sense of self.

-Erich Fromm


INFJ creativity is realized in planning a route to accomplish a task that encourages developmental growth of the individuals engaged in the task's execution and those who are recipients of the end result.  The plight of perfection hovers and motivates INFJs to make a personally fulfilling change to help each to benefit from his or her role in the process.  Time is spent incubating on ideas and visions of reaching the goal.  INFJs have a sense about what people need in order to grow and covertly matches tasks to people who need to learn from doing them.  This is the source of INFJ creativity -- making something out of potential, even if sweat work is involved, and gently persuading and affirming the accomplishments and gifts of others in meaningful ways.
