To outsiders, the outburst can see over the top and absurd, but the INFP has a very “internal” thought process in which they struggle to see the logical or factual side of things.They often go by their feelings rather than what science, facts, or logic suggests.Most individuals with this type of personality do not really care if their opinion is right, they simply care about how a situation or a person makes them feel.
Aside from being introverted and internal, “idealists” can be very laid-back and intuitive of those around them.They can get a pretty good sense about a person’s true self (including motives) and are very thoughtful of their findings.INFPs make great listeners and because they are usually non-judgmental they are often sought out by friends who need to vent.For an INFP, relationships may be less numerous but those that are formed are often long-lasting.This Myers-Briggs personality is defined as primarily being introverted, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving, although this description really only scratches the surface of this character.
An estimated four to five percent of the population has the INFP personality.
Although there is a fairly balanced ratio of males and females with this character, it does seem that this persona appears slightly more often in males.
The INFP, or “Idealist,” is a character that has a very active imagination.
They tend to not only see the best in the people around them, but they may also be led to imagining characteristics and motives in others that simply aren’t there.
Much like the INFJ, INFPs really dislike conflict and will go to great lengths to avoid an argument and see that everyone is happy.
When a conflict does arise, this persona may have a profound emotional reaction.
