About


I’m an INFJ joe amid extroverts, sensors, thinkers, and perceivers, and still trying to come to terms with it on a daily basis. This site is not about things exclusive to the INFJ but rather my experiences and thoughts as an INFJ. For those who share the same Myers-Briggs personality type, I hope you can identify with some of my postings and be encouraged that you are not alone. For those who are not INFJ, I hope this blog will give you a little insight into this particular type.

INFJoe is my nom de cartoon. My real name is Aaron Caycedo-Kimura. If you want to know more about me, you can check out my interview with Hoctok: http://www.hoctok.com/aaron-caycedo-kimura.html.

Thank you so much for visiting. Please have a look around.

  1. Hi,
    I have just discovered that I am INFJ type. What relief! Well, it’s more than that, but that is probably the easiest way to express the torrent of thoughts and feeling on the matter.
    I spent the day researching and came across your blog. Your comics made my day.
    Thank you.

  2. 🙂 Glad to have found a fellow INFJ and one with such talented cartoons. I have actually smiled while reading some of the cartoons … a notable physical reaction for me… since I usually just internalize humor. Nonetheless, I like your blog.

    • Thank you for stopping by. I’m glad you enjoyed the cartoons. Funny you should say you internalize humor. When I was a kid, I’d watch Saturday morning cartoons with no outward reaction. I was shocked the first time I heard other kids laugh while they watched.

      • Well, as I mentioned in another comment here, my husband is an ISFP. When we watch shows like Big Bang Theory or Parks and Recreation he’s cracking up left and right and I’m sitting their placidly. There are a couple moments where I bust out laughing, but those are few and far between. Though, their moments of sincere funny in my infj-brain-o-sphere. It’s always weird if I watch a show without him, it’s so quiet! Ha.

  3. I am an INFJ and your comic is really entertaining, helps me to know more about myself at the same time. INFJ rocks the world [introvertly]! 😛

  4. I found your blog by searching “rich inner life” which led me to the MBTI INFJ wikipedia – which is my personality type. This led me on an image search for INFJ. Your artwork is WONDERFUL and so affirming for this old INFJ. I hope it is OK that I made a folder on my facebook page by your name? I’ll remove it immediately if it is not. It just now entered my mind that I should have asked first! ~Amy

    • Hi Amy. Thank you so much for visiting. I’m glad you found my blog and that you are enjoying the cartoons. Yes, that is perfectly fine to put them on your FB page. I welcome people sharing them with others. If there is someway to put a link back to my blog, that would be great. It’s so nice to connect with you here. Hope you will visit again.:)

      • I posted your link twice. Once with the folder and once into the Facebook stream. I know of at least 3 others on my friends list that are INFJs and more who are introverts. The rest of them won’t get it at all! 🙂

  5. Hi Joe.
    I’m an INFJ from China. I’ve been visiting this blog and enjoying your comic for a couple of months. I always want to leave some comments, but I don’t know how to start. I just want to tell you that I really really love your postings and happy to see someone has the same thoughts or feelings that I have. (I’m also a Scorpio) I don’t know any other INFJ in my life. People in my life, I don’t know what to say… I don’t have friends. I’m a freak, and it’s hard for me to accept myself. It’s so cool that you can truely accpet who you are and I do admire your comics. It’s so sad that we can’t use twitter of facebook in China…
    Am I saying too much? Anyway, I just want to say thank you soooooooooooo much Joe.

    • Hi Cora.S,

      Thank you so much for leaving your comment. No, you are not saying to much. Please write me as much as you want. I am sorry that you can’t use Twitter or Facebook where you are, but we can communicate through this blog. I’m glad that you can identify with the postings and cartoons. You are not alone. You are not a freak. I hope you are doing well. Thanks again.

      • Hello Cora,
        I was touched by your share. You are so not alone in the world but I am sorry you don’t have social media because Facebook has been a lifesaver for this INFJ! I have made many friends. I found INFJoe via Twitter which I only recently started when I got an iPhone. I am 60 and only just getting to know, love and accepte myself. I am also HSP – you may try getting Elaine Aron’s wonderful book “The Highly Sensitive Person” or Google HSP for the quiz that helps find out if you are one! Another site I love is http://www.lonerwolf.com and their postings, and NLP Discoveries. Good luck!

  7. Hi INFJoe,

    I just found your blog and wanted to say thank you! I absolutely love your artwork, and I relate so strongly to the messages. I’m an INFJ HSP too, which you could probably “guess” already. I’ve decided to be more proactive in searching out community with other INFJs because waiting for them to fall onto my doorstep hasn’t really been working out so well. It is such a comfort and a delight to find people (or fellow aliens) like you out there. I hope this blog continues to be a rewarding enterprise for you, both as a creative outlet and as a way to find more members of the pack. All my best to you.

    • Hi!
      Thank you so much for your note. I’m so glad you found me here and that you can relate. Yeah, there aren’t too many of us INFJ HSPs out there. I have found social media a great way to meet others of the same rare type. I really appreciate your reaching out and connecting with me. All my best to you as well.

  8. Joe, your cartoons are the greatest. I have an introvert blog, too, and on Wednesdays I do a cartoon of the week. I would love it if you’d consider guest blogging or at least letting me showcase some of your cartoons. I have a contact page on my blog at 61 Musings if you’d like to chat off line. Have a quiet day!

  9. Just realized your name is not Joe…although it would’ve been a great coincidental analogy if it were. Especially since we introverts can sometimes seem like ordinary Joes. Then again, you probably already knew that, hence the reason for choosing such an ideal name. Sorry for the mix-up, Aaron!

  11. Hello! Thank you so much for following my blog. I have just recently (within the last year) discovered that I am INFJ. So I have been doing as much research on it as I can. That’s how I came across your blog. It’s nice to know there are others out there that understand! I enjoy your blog very much and look forward to reading more from you!

    • Hi Penny! I’m so glad you found me and most importantly, that you are an INFJ. I find it helpful to put a name on things, especially if you grew up feeling way different from others. Yes, there are others who understand! Happy New Year!

  12. I love your blog, which I visit regularly, and I was so happy to see you on BoredPanda – which I browse through sometimes. Great stuff. I so relate. I love being an INFJ, and almost just as much, I love the INFJ validation. Keep it up.

  15. Hi! A friend of mine sent me an article about introverts where your web was mentioned. I knew I was different (and proud of it!), but I didn’t know that I was specifically an INFJ. Now I have your web on favourites and I like to come here sometimes. I feel so identified here, you always make me smile. Thank you 🙂

  16. Hello, I was wondering if you sell your work at all. There are a few of your cartoons that really spoke to me recently when I was feeling intensely alone in my introversion. Your drawings made me laugh and feel understood, and I’d love to put them on my wall or desk to help remind me I’m not alone. Also, I was wondering if I could interview you and showcase your work for my blog. Love what you do. It’s so helpful!!!

  17. Hey Joe,

    My mom pointed me to your page via the A Plus article. Your comics are great. I’m also an INFJ and as one of the rarest types, there aren’t a lot of people that get it. So I really appreciate what you’re doing. Please keep it up.

  18. Hello, there..came across your blog after typing ‘INFJ’.. ^_^
    Just took the test last month, resulting an INFJ as well, and loving myself more and more ever since.
    I guess i know why I’ve always wanted to be a Psychologist, or why I always have friends coming to me to share their feelings/stories/anything (without being asked to)..and a lot of other reasons. :))

  23. This is wonderful. I have known for a few years that I am hsp, but only discovered the infj-part about a month ago. Since then I have been diving into everything about infj online. I wanted to be sure and am not so good at just accepting the first opinion. Then someone told me that only an infj would spend several weeks researching If she really was an infj so I thought ok, time to accept 😂 I enjoy you comics since I can recognize my own mind in every one of them 😄 I follow you on instagram, it’s the only social media i actually use. Thank you for making me laugh in my head with each post 😊

  24. I just found this blog and can’t wait to check it out. I just discovered that I am an INFJ too. After taking multiple tests to confirm, I found that it is so very accurate! What I would love to hear is if anyone has any experience with being taken advantage of due to our personality type. That is actually how I stumbled upon these personality tests. I wanted to see if perhaps there was a problem with me (meaning, I come off too difficult, etc) I suspected it wasn’t because that is not my nature…it’s actually the complete opposite (people pleaser!). I would love to hear if anyone else feels like they’ve been taken advantage of by stronger and more dominant personality types due to their pleasant, flexible nature,

  25. I sometimes feel like an exploding doormat. I take on so much of other people’s attitudes that I melt down eventually. It can be tough but I would not now choose to be any different. I am who I am and I can live with it and even like it.
