3. J-Hope settles for nothing less than 100% of his effort.
Because of their intense work ethic, INFJs often push themselves to do the best they can do and can be hard on themselves if they don’t live up to their own expectations.
These “workaholic” tendencies can show during times like the COVID-19 pandemic when J-Hope revealed he felt pressures from himself to work during a time of rest.
All of the time he spends practicing his skills, whether it is dancing long hours or creating music, shows that putting all of his effort into everything he does and pushing himself to be his best version comes naturally to J-Hope. This doesn’t mean it’s easy — but to him, the end result is worth the effort!
4. J-Hope is an excellent listener and a true leader.
It is known that some INFJs may appear extroverted, but listen more and say less than people realize. This is especially true for J-Hope who may appear as his bright image on the outside, but inside has an endless array of unique and complex qualities that make him much more than meets the eye.
RM revealed how J-Hope constantly offers his own input to help guide BTS and can even be considered the true leader behind the scenes.
Always listening to everyone first, he acts as a selfless and humble leader who pushes from behind instead of pulls from the front.
He shares his opinions at the end. Yoongi and I are the ones always talking, but I think listening is the hardest. It’s easier to speak your mind, but he listens to what everyone says. The strongest characters are usually the squinting ones, though he doesn’t squint his eyes.
5. J-Hope has deep, genuine relationships with the people in his life.
Extremely empathetic to others emotions, INFJs often have intimate and meaningful relationships with those they love.
J-Hope takes his friendship seriously, always supporting those he loves and offering help whenever needed. From giving genuine advice to promoting their solo endeavors, he does everything he can for his members and friends.
As a family man, J-Hope always talks about his strong, loving bond with his family and how he video calls them every night on tour. From writing music for his mom to constantly talking about her to the BTS members, he treasures his family more than anything.
