Querer que - subjunctive trigger

Does querer que trigger the subjunctive if it's something you're wishing for yourself?

Hola Ruth

No, if you wish something for yourself you then drop "que" and use an infinitive. For example:

Yo quiero que tú vayas a Francia. 

I want you to go to France.

(subjunctive, as there are two subjects)

but

Yo quiero ir a Francia.

I want to go to France.

No "que" and no subjunctive but infinitive.

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos
