24 thoughtful cartoons that introverts (especially INFJs) will relate to

From INFJoe

Aaron Caycedo-Kimura, an INFJ personality type, created INFJoe Cartoons to help other INFJs not feel so alone.


He says, “I wanted to encourage other INFJs, particularly younger ones, who may feel out of place like I have all my life. I remember how tough it was growing up. Still is.” For those who are not INFJs, he hopes his cartoons will help them gain some insight into this misunderstood personality type.

Introverts who are not INFJs will likely be able to relate to many of Aaron’s cartoons as well.

Aaron was born and raised in California but has lived with his INFP wife on the East Coast for almost three decades. He is employed as a graphic designer but says he’s a painter and poet by heart.

To INFJs, he says, “Be true to yourselves, be good to yourselves. You’re wired a particular way, fashioned according to a particular design, so use it to do good, to do that which only you can do.”

His cartoons show how life can be both wonderful and painful when you’re an introvert and INFJ. Here are 24 of them:

1. You love people, but being around them for too long drains you.

Intuitives see the world differently. They aren’t interested in the mundane or day-to-day. They ask, “What if?” They want to create, heal, inspire, or invent. They want to change the world. Only one in four people are intuitive. Are you one of them? Learn more about our partner Personality Hacker’s course just for intuitives.
