Very rare personality type, INFJ (Introversion, iNtuition, Feeling, Judging) I have 😜😘😛

What is a normal to one person, culture, country/place and religious group is abnormal to others which I got to understand once I started to explore to understand gender-based discrimination root cause because whatever bias or discrimination or injustice or inequality based on sex, race, skinned colour, class, caste, geographical region or belief take place in a human society it is just the fruits that have been ripen to taste which we have been tasting since we were born or earlier than that our ancestors had tasted. I was not that much aware about discrimination or inequality thus I know nothing about it before, till I completed my Master in Public Health although I used to face some discriminatory attitude and behaviour especially from my elder brother and mother. However, following the establishment of the first and only nurse-midwives led birthing centre in 2007 from our own out of pocket expenses to empower nurses to help them to stand independent in helping others women, especially childbearing women I came to realise the intensity of discriminatory attitude and behaviour in the society and among professionals. After gaining three years of running the birthing centre I decided to pursue my further education in the related field focusing on gender power relations in sexual and reproductive health (SRH) to under about it in-depth. SRH is my passionate field because I worked in this field once I joined public health sector in 1997 with Women's Rehabilitation Centre (WOREC) where currently I am a board member as per the request of the founding chairperson, Dr Renu Adhikari Rajbhandari. 
Anyway, while doing my doctorate I explored lot of books and articles relating to the issue and realised that unless and until we don't change our mindset nothing going to happen. I realised that everything is psychology and psychology has been controlling our body, mind and spirit including human attitude, behaviour and emotion that construct our personality traits. Since then intentionally I tried to became abnormal for those considered themselves normal fitting in socially constructed norms, values and beliefs.
I see that most of the people like to be a normal fitting very well in their cultured society and cultured mind. However, I am bit wired who don't like to be a normal fitting myself in a Gaussian coined normal distribution statistical belly curve median of around 68% that's why I chose to be abnormal to remain odd in out in my thoughts and actions. This could be the reason WHY I had most of these traits that very rare only in 2% of the world population have personality type [1, 2,3].

They are deep thinkers who are highly intuitive. While they do go over all the possible outcomes of everything in their minds they also know when their gut tells them to do something that they should do it.
4. They are truth seekers.
INFJs seek a deeper meaning for everything happening in this universe.
5. They do not like to work with people who disagree with them.
They prefer small groups of people instead of large ones. If you don’t agree with them and cannot come to some sort of common ground they will up and cut you out of everything.
6. They are good at comforting people.
They are great at providing the shoulder you need to cry on.
7. They can read people.
They can see people for who they truly are if you have bad intentions chances are they can tell.
8. They are often lonely.
Even in a room full of people they still feel like the odd man out. This is because they are so ‘different.’
9. They are either all or nothing.
They value quality over quantity and if you are not putting in your best efforts they want nothing to do with you.
10. They are full of contradictions.
They are always going from one end of the spectrum to the other. This sometimes makes them hard to follow.
11. They are great at connecting the dots.
Figuring things out is one of their strong points. If you can’t find an answer you may want to go to an INFJ for advice.
12. They are writers, not talkers.
The INFJ, for the most part, wants to get things out with paper and pen over word of mouth. Writing is a means of bringing an end to all the chaos going on in their minds. If you want an INFJ to talk on the phone unexpectedly chances are there will be quite a few moments of silence.

Historical injustice should be addressed through Reparation

Historical social injustice should be addressed through Reparation for the systematic, structural and strategic marginalisation of certain groups by the state which has done in Nepal since 18th century imposing unjust law, policies and strategies based on the Law of Manu "Manusmriti". However, it has been overlooked because only handful of Nepalese are aware and informed about it and the vast majority of people who are holding power in the state three major pillars known as executive, legislative and juridic belong to those families, colour, class and caste whose ancestors were involved in marginalisation and discrimination of large group of Nepalese.
According to the Constitution of Nepal “Marginalized” means those who have been forced to fall backward politically, economically and socially, those who have been unable to avail services because of discrimination and harassment, and because of geographical disconnection, and those communities whose standard of living has been below the legal standard as specified in the Human Development indicators. It also signifies the ultra-marginalized and communities on verge of extinction [1]. In Nepal according to the Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities following indigenous have been classified as a marginalised group. These include
1. Sunuwar
2. Tharu
3. Tamang
4. Bhujel
5. Kumal
6. Rajbansi
7. Gangai
8. Dhimal
9. Bhote
10. Darai
11. Tajpuriya
12. Pahari
13. Topkegola
14. Dolpo
15. Free
16. Mugal
17. Larke
18. Lohpa
19. Dura
20. Walung
According to the Nepal Multidimensional Exclusion Index 2013 aforementioned marginalised groups are massively deprived from the state welfare system [2]. However, they still has to compete with caste/ethnic groups that have privileged by the state system. In order to uplift marginalised communities government of Nepal should make policies, strategies and plans based on the available evidence such as Nepal Multidimensional Exclusion Index 2013.
Therefore, when government of Nepal makes policy to uplift these marginalised group members they have to clearly specify how they will uplift from their present status of backwardness because of unjust politically, economically and socially discriminatory policies, law and strategies imposed on them and their ancestors. They should be provided justice by reparation addressing historical injustice that was imposed on them.
