INFP - The "Dreamer"

INFPs are introspective, private, creative and highly idealistic individuals that have a constant desire to be on a meaningful path. They are driven by their values and seek peace. Empathetic and compassionate, they want to help others and humanity as a whole. INFPs are imaginative, artistic and often have a talent for language and writing. They can also be described as easygoing, selfless, guarded, adaptable, patient and loyal.

Temperament: NF (Visionary)
INFP Population Total: 2%

"...the King's Champion or Defender of the Faith..." - The Portrait of a Healer Idealist (Keirsey)

"...on a continuous mission to find the truth and meaning underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through the INFP's value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential to help the INFP define or refine their own path in life." - Portrait of an INFP (The Personality Page)

"Highly creative, artistic and spiritual, they can produce wonderful works of art, music and literature. INFPs are natural artists. They will find great satisfaction if they encourage and develop their artistic abilities. That doesn't mean that an INFP has to be a famous writer or painter in order to be content. Simply the act of "creating" will be a fulfilling source of renewal and refreshment to the INFP. An INFP should allow himself or herself some artistic outlet, because it will add enrichment and positive energy to their life." - INFP Personal Growth (The Personality Page)

"Their job must be fun, although not racous, and it must be meaningful to them. They need a strong purpose in their work." - INFP - The Dreamer (Lifexplore)

I took this test... I am an ISFJ. I took this test several years ago for work and was an ENTJ. I guess I've changed a LOT over the years!

Wow, I'm an INFP too and just posted this the other day at my blog. Some new trend for MethoBloggers? :-)

Charlotte, that is a lot of change. Have you been consciously developing those aspects of your personality?

I'm also an INFP. So is the associate pastor at my church.

God talking seems to fit the INFP well - even if things like administative details sometimes don't.

wow, I thought I was highly extroverted, and you are pretty high on the introvert scale.

It is interesting that you scored all on the right side.

Do you tend to be more abstract or concrete in thought?
