You are all so feelingsy
My dearest friend (and roommate) is an INFP. I just love her, she's so adorable and kind. I sometimes wish to be as warm and lovable as she is. We make a perfect team.

There's a few types I can sort of insta-type (as opposed to all the types i suck at typing) and one of them is the infp.
Basically, does the person give off a strong "aura" of something fluffy i want to snuggle? Then 9/10 times they're an infp. I'm not saying there aren't other cuddly types out there (...although most of them turn out to be ENFPs, so........) but there is something very specific about the, I'm not sure, the body language and way you talk and facial expressions or whatever I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS but you guys are really cute. And sweet!
.......you are also really stubborn, though. Yeah. I basically never bother to get into an argument with you, ever. It's just gonna make you dig your heels deeper in... It's more fun to "one-sided" argue with you, what i mean is to take something that pisses both of us off and mutually attack it. then we really feed off each other's snark.
(And i laugh at the folks who call you pushovers. ha. hahaha. i've never met a one of you that wasn't extremely obsessed with being nice and you mostly wouldn't hurt a fly, but see above about stubborn. stubborn. stuuuuuborn. you have all the ability to be "pushed" of a kiloton of lead welded to the floor)
My best friend is an INFP. But he has this thing where he really gets where I'm coming from (most of the time) with my T-ness, I think without that I'd get tired of shit real fast. He's just really open minded (again..most of the time). INFPs are known for being whiny, and I see that a little bit, but we are both pretty critical of each other, he'll let me know when I'm being a jackass and I do the same when he's told me the same story 6 times or something of that nature. One thing I'll say that bugs the hell out of me, although he doesn't do it all the time, is interrupt me. Especially when we're disputing something. So I get tired of raising my voice over his and eventually I'm just like fuck it I'm done and stay silent.
For casual conversation, you're great. Interesting, creative, all that.
My favorite teacher this year is an INFP, the one who introduced me to myers briggs actually. She's smart, and likes to let us talk about the book we're working out with minimum "This is what you're supposed to think" stuff.
That being said
Fi drives me INSANE.
I of course love to debate, but INFP's will just ignore points you've made and repeat ones you've already gone against.
I've also found that they'll get annoyed when you disagree with them, or overly defensive.
They take everything too personally and aren't that open to different opinions.
You're really confusing sometimes. Sometimes it even seems intentional. Which is confusing.
I find you very interesting, fascinating people. Shame that you keep it all to yourselves!
It's very difficult to gain access to your VIP space - especially for ENTPs, as we tend to remain fairweather friends - but as an ENTP who happens to have a very deep relationship with an INFP, I can assure you all that it's worth the struggle(and confusion)!
My ENTP sister is driving me craazy.
I like them... from afar. It's pretty tasking to have a relationship with them, I feel like I'm walking on egg shells all the time trying not to hurt them. It's not just that they're ridiculously easily hurt, it's also that there's something about them that really makes me not want to hurt them (unlike with most people where I just shrug it off when I accidentally do, with INFPs I feel pretty bad about it). They're just too much work and stress for me, and too little mutual understanding. Sorry.
I'm friends with two INFPs (one of which I have a crush on). I think both are awesome!
My best friend INFP is awesome, great to hang out with, and I think we actually have quite a lot in common personality and interest-wise (we both are sarcastic assholes XD). Whenever we need to rant, the first person I go to is her, and she comes to me whenever she has a problem too. We offer advice to each other and generally get on great! We both are awkward together, though I'm probably less awkward and quite sociable. I normally take initiative in our conversations. When we do start talking, we can't stop! We are into the same sort of things too.
The one I have a crush on... I wish felt half the time, because they don't really open up to me about that. I guess it could be out of fear how I would react or they don't want to bother me with their problems, both of which I have no issues with. I've started being able to tell by his speech, though he's only started telling me problems he has. I want to be able to help him, like I do with my best friend INFP. I think this is my only issue with him. Still, he is generally awesome, funny and listens to my stupid rants. XD We don't have as much in common, but we like to try out whatever the other person recommends.
